Gifts for everyone in your life, based on their star sign

Christmas is coming and we’ve all heard that we need to get in early with our gift buying this year to ensure everything gets to us on time. If you’re stuck on what to buy someone, never fear – let the stars guide you.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and people who fall under it are independent, successful, and often trendsetters. They like to be the first to try out a new style or flaunt a new gadget.

Aries is a sign that likes attention so something tailor-made just for them will strike a chord and make them feel loved. A strategy gift such as a competitive card or board game will also get them excited.

This fire sign’s power colour is red so anything from a crimson throw pillow to a bold lipstick could work well.

Practical, high-quality gifts typically appeal to the zodiac’s bull. But they care more about quality than quantity or size.

Taurus is an earth sign, so those who fall under it are often focused on the material – things they can touch, taste, and smell. So a cosy blanket, a new cookbook they can master, or a fragrance that will become their new signature scent are all ideal gifts.

They also enjoy making things by hand, so buy them a kit or supplies that will help them to create their masterpiece.

The ultimate present you can give a Taurus is something genuine and from the heart.

Gemini is the sign of twins, which means that people who fall under Gemini tend to have two sides to their personality. They tend to be vivacious and talkative on one hand and inquisitive and thoughtful on the other. By nature, they’re sociable and make others feel at ease.

As the colour of the mind, yellow lifts Gemini’s spirits and triggers curiosity, so a thoughtful yellow homeware gift could be an option.

They also tend to enjoy expressing themselves through quirky clothing and accessories.

Sentimental Cancers love gifts with a personal touch. As the sign that rules history, they prefer a present with classic value (even an antique) above the latest gadget or toy.

As the zodiac’s mother sign, Cancers are always the first to lend a listening ear. So any cosy or domestic gift such as a blanket, a notebook or even a mug and a box of their favourite tea should go over well.

Cancers are ruled by the moon, so ethereal silvers and greys are their power colours.

Ruled by the sun, Leos love luxury and gifts they can show off to others. They’re often open and passionate about their hobbies so it’s likely you’ll know where their interests lie. When shopping for them, just remember they love bold statements and anything they can custom-decorate.

This sign rules the theatre, so tickets to a live performance may be appreciated.

Virgos tend to be perfectionists and master planners. Anything that appeals to their love of scheduling such as a planner or diary will be appreciated.

Wellness products such as face masks or luxury candles are usually a good choice but ensure you pick something well-made and sustainable over something trendy.

They also lean towards being environmentally aware, so a handmade gift will feel extra special.

Lavish Libras love to surround themselves with beauty and luxury. They strive to incorporate something beautiful into every part of their lives. So make-up kits, perfume, fancy cookware and trinkets are all good options.

They’re also huge social butterflies by nature, so any gift that can be shared with a friend or partner would also make a Libra smile.

Scorpios are typically difficult to shop for. They are known for being intense with their interests but also notoriously guarded.

They tend to enjoy their alone time, so books and art supplies often go over well. They also enjoy making things by hand or figuring out how things work by taking them apart.

They are intuitive, thoughtful, and deep people, and thus, they love a gift that’s deeply personal or one-of-a-kind. Think about how they spend their free time and tailor a gift to them.

Sagittarians are the zodiac’s adventurers and travellers. They’re ready to blaze new trails and make new friends along the way. Anything that allows them to tap into their free-spirited nature will be appreciated. A cookbook that celebrates world recipes, a scrapbooking kit or a subscription to the best travel magazine.

They also love to make a splash with bright colours and edgy flair, so hit smaller boutiques instead of the malls when shopping for them. Purple is their power colour, everything from plum to lavender.

Classic, elegant Capricorns tend to appreciate items of lasting value made by respected brand names. So go for quality over quantity. A well-made accessory such as a shawl or scarf, or a limited-edition collectors’ item, often appeal to their nature.

Born between 22 December and 19 January, their birthdays are often overlooked because of the holiday season. So, if you really want to get on their good side, get them two presents.

As sociable air signs, Aquarians love to be out and about. They are extremely interested in exploring, whether it be through trying new foods or visiting a place they’ve never been to before. So a meal at an unusual restaurant or tickets to a fun, upcoming event will be appreciated.

As the sign of the humanitarian, gifts from conscious companies are usually a hit, especially if the proceeds fund a developing nation or charitable cause.

Pisces are highly imaginative, with a penchant for arts and romance. As a water sign, they tend to feel a lot. They are often empathetic and always first to offer a shoulder to cry on.

Any gift focused on self-care is perfect for the Pisces in your life. They often forget to be as kind to themselves as they are to others – so a spa treatment, luxury candle, essential oil diffuser or any gift that allows them to take time out for themselves is great.
