To help narrow down your choices and make it easier for you to pick out the perfect gifts, we worked with our resident astro-expert to prepare a complete zodiac gift guide so that you’ll be able to get your loved ones something that they’ll really want for 2021.
Capricorn: December 22 – January 20
Born between late December and late January, Capricorns are well known for being practical, goal-orientated and pragmatic. The 10th sign of the zodiac calendar, Capricorns are also known to be so grounded in reality that when it comes to achieving their dreams, they tackle every hurdle in the most systematic way possible; ensuring that they actually do achieve their goals.
At times, they can also come off as stubborn, stoic and pessimistic; preferring to do things at their own pace. They also much rather have a small, intimate group of friends rather than being part of a large crowd. So if you’re friends with a Capricorn, consider yourself blessed!
People born under this star sign are also hard workers and would appreciate receiving something practical as a gift.
Personalised Gift Suggestions for Capricorns:
Side Note: Capricorns hold themselves (and others) to a high standard and can be unforgiving when they perceive that they’ve been made a fool off. Avoid giving them something that will make them feel uncomfortable socially – like a ‘too loud’ graphics tee or something that forces them to take time off from work/study when they are not ready – like surprise vacations.
Aquarius: January 21 – February 18
Despite having the word ‘aqua’ in its name, Aquarius is actually the last ‘air’ sign in the zodiac. People who are born in late-January or early-to-mid-February fall under the sign Aquarius. Represented by the Water Bearer – known for its healing traits, the Aquarius possesses the most humanitarian traits out of all the zodiacs.
A rebel at heart, an Aquarius often possesses progressive and idealistic views. They are also highly intelligent, creative and not to mention – a little quirky! People born under this sign also despises authority, any form of conventionality and anything that tries to stifle their free-spirited nature. With their offbeat sense of style, unusual hobbies and interest and non-conformist nature, gifting an Aquarius something personalised to their interest will always win you some brownie points!
Personalised Gift Suggestions for Aquarius:
Side Note: Aquarius loves all things unique – so much more so than any other zodiac signs. To ensure that you keep your Aquarius friend or family member happy throughout the holidays, do try not to give them something repetitive.
Pisces: February 19 – March 20
If you know someone who was born between mid-February to mid-March, then you definitely know a Pisces. Represented by a pair of fish and associated with the element of water, a Pisces will possibly be one of the most laid back people you’ll ever meet. Known for being compassionate and agreeable, Pisces are able to expertly adapt to any situation and seem to have an intuitive understanding of the world around them.
Another trait that’s common among people who are born under the Pisces sign is that they are very creative, spiritual and have a wide variety of interests. Therefore, by giving them something that can appeal to their creative or spiritual side, you will definitely be able to receive a favourable reaction.
Personalised Gift Suggestions for Pisces:
Side note: Pisces are also known to be rather sensitive, so be sure to avoid giving them something insensitive (like perfume or money) or something impersonal (like gift cards) to ensure that you keep your Pisces person happy!
Aries: March 21 – April 20
Do you have a friend or family member who seems to be obsessed with the thought of becoming ‘number 1’ at something? From social gatherings to work, they seem to flit about from group to group or project to project with the frenetic energy of a hummingbird. If the answer is yes, chances are that they’re an Aries. Born between March 21st and April 20th, Aries are a ‘Fire’ sign and are considered to be the ‘hooligans’ of the stars (along with fellow fire signs, Leo and Saggitarius).
People who are born under this star sign are usually bold, brash, passionate and confident. They also tend to act first without considering the consequences. Natural born leaders, an Aries is a trailblazer and would appreciate anything that’s action-orientated.
Personalised Gift Suggestions for Aries:
Side note: While Aries are amazing team players and oftentimes are the one who take initiative, they can also be very impatient, shallow and self-absorbed. Avoid giving them something that’s overly ‘mushy’ or have too many parts.
Taurus: April 21 – May 21
Famed for their stubbornness, Taurus (or Taureans as they’re often referred to) are Earth signs (along with Virgo and Capricorns). Represented by the bull, the people who are born under this sign often possess traits such as being patient, practical, devoted, and reliable. The second sign of the zodiac list, Taurus are the ‘anchor’ of the stars; never shying away from hard work and valuing honesty above all else. While their steadfast and ambitious nature is admirable, it’s not always hard work with them!
Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus – meaning they are also a fan of all things beautiful and have a slight hedonistic side. They tend to seek out ‘beautiful things’ and have a love for luxury and comfort. The very definition of ‘work hard, play hard’ if you will.
Personalised Gift Suggestions for Taurus:
Side note: While they can be very gentle and loving, a Taurus can also be rather set in their ways. They’re not very fond of authority figures and have strong opinions on the things around them. When shopping for a gift for your Taurus friends, do try to avoid purchasing anything that is impractical or that takes them out of their comfort zone.
Gemini: May 22 – June 21
Communicative, social, creative and whimsical – it’s no wonder why Gemini seem to always be at the centre of attention. They tend to live in the moment and will definitely have tons of fun experiences to share when they meet new people – just to break the ice. People who are born under this star sign tend to be very passionate, charming and are usually social butterflies. In fact, many gemini’s often list ‘communication’ as one of their topmost priorities. They just love sharing their ideas and knowledge with people – making them excellent people to work with on group projects.
Gemini’s are also very witty and adaptable. Depending on the crowd, they can seemingly change their personalities at a moment’s notice. Their adaptability, wit and knowledge (superficial or otherwise) on a wide variety of topics usually means that they’re able to handle most situations with ease. Unfortunately, it is also this trait that can somehow make them seem a bit ‘two-faced’ and artificial.
Personalised Gift Suggestions for Gemini:
Side note: A Gemini personality tends to be very fun and likeable, but like every other sign, they do have their weaknesses. Gemini’s tend to get bored rather easily so if possible, avoid getting them gifts that have too many parts – (for fear they’ll never finish!)
Cancer: June 22 – July 22
Deeply intuitive and surprisingly sensitive, Cancer can be one of the most difficult people to get to know (and shop for). Much like their celestial spirit animal (Cancer is represented by the crab, just FYI), people who are born under this star sign have a hard outer shell and are extremely self-protective. This in turn makes it rather difficult to really get to know them as they often appear to be cold and distant.
But beneath the hard exterior shell, Cancers do genuinely have a deeply caring, sympathetic and emotional side. Domestically oriented, they also love creating cosy, safe spaces for them to hide away when the outside world gets too tough.
Personalised Gift Suggestions for Cancer:
Side note: Cancers have a hard time blending into the world around them. Deeply emotional, they require a lot of patience and understanding – especially when you’re first getting to know them. When it comes to gifts, they’ll appreciate things that are more thoughtful; so it’s best to avoid getting them generic gifts or things that feel like not enough thought went into them.
Leo: July 23 – August 23
Confident, loyal, passionate and drama-adoring. People who are born under the Leo star sign delight in moments where they can showcase their charismatic personality. Much like the Gemini, Leo’s thrive when they’re made the centre of attention. With their gregarious personality, Leo’s tend to have a rather large friend group or social circle. Their generosity, self-confidence and determination also make them natural-born leaders.
Full of strength and vitality, Leo’s are able to command the spotlight everywhere they go. They’re incredible people to be around and the fact that they can easily engage and inspire others to be their ‘best-self’ also makes them very admirable.
Personalised Gift Suggestions for Leo:
Side note: Leo’s are loud, proud and can be a bit of a showoff. Getting them anything with a Lion print or their star-sign print will always go over well with them. They’ll definitely appreciate anything that references their personal taste and personality. To ensure your Leo likes what you give them, be sure to avoid routine or common gifts – they’d much prefer getting something unique or one of a kind!
Virgo: August 24 – September 22
A Virgo is a person born between August 24th and September 22nd. Represented by the symbol of the ‘Maiden’ or the ‘Virgin’, Virgo’s are known to be practical, sensible, and loyal. They make for excellent friends and are 100% supportive of the people in their lives. In fact, out of all the 12 signs in the zodiac, a Virgo will probably be the first one to give people the benefit of the doubt – something that further underlines their kind nature.
In terms of their personal and professional lives, Virgo’s are thE ultimate perfectionist. They would like to do something perfectly or not at all – which can be seen as hardworking at best and overly self-critical at worst.
Personalised Gift Suggestions for Virgo:
Side note: Virgo’s are very practical people and prefer to receive something that they can actually use or incorporate into their daily lives. Try to avoid giving them something frivolous or something that takes too long to put together as it can have an adverse effect when pitted against a Virgo’s perfectionist nature.
Libra: September 23 – October 23
Libras can be some of the most interesting, charming and well-balanced people to be around. Born between mid-September to mid-October, the people who are born under this star sign are usually very fair-minded, clever and have a swift sense of humour – making them excellent company.
As mentioned before, Librans are well-balanced people and love keeping things in their surroundings tidy, orderly & harmonious. They can’t stand any sort of mess or chaos – doubly so when it comes to their social circle. In short, if Libras sense unrest or an inkling of unfairness going on behind the scenes, they can’t be at peace and will do everything in their power to rectify it.
Personalised Gift Suggestions for Libra:
Side note: Despite their love of neatness and order, Libras tend to be big fans of self-indulgence. They adore beautiful things and gravitate towards anything that hits all their aesthetic notes – be it artwork, tchotchkes or things that can improve the comfort of their living spaces. To please a Libra, try to avoid giving them tech-based items and accessories – as they tend to perceive these items as ‘unromantic’, ‘impersonal’ and ‘bland’.
Scorpio: October 24 – November 22
While they can come off as intimidating due to their fiercely independent nature, Scorpios are actually rather kind – if albeit emotionally turbulent people! Often mistaken for a Fire Sign, Scorpios actually belong to the Water element of the zodiac (similar to Cancer and Pieces). What sets the Scorpio personality traits apart from their fellow water signs is that – like their celestial animal, the scorpion – Scorpios have a rather dangerous sting to them when trifled with.
If you watch a lot of movies, Scorpio traits can often be seen when an actor is portraying a stereotypical ‘bad boy with a hidden kind side’ character or as that ‘edgy and fiercely protective big sister’ type – think Anakin Skywalker from Star Wars and Black Widow from the MCU.
Intense, honest and ambitious, Scorpios are not afraid to pursue their goals with a single-minded determination. They are some of the most dedicated people you’ll ever meet and once they commit to something, they stick with it – making them great friends and romantic partners.
Personalised Gift Suggestions for Scorpios:
Side note: Despite their somewhat prickly exteriors, Scorpios are easy enough to shop for. They are forthright and are not afraid to let people know about what interests them. A stylish, personalised tote bag, a cool poster or a mug featuring their star sign would all make good gifts. Do try to avoid giving them gifts pertaining to subjects or hobbies they have no interests in.
Sagittarius: November 23 – December 21
Sagittarius are people who are born between November 23 and December 21. They tend to be some of the most flexible people on the planet; and like many Fire-signs, they’re all about ‘energy, action and motivation’. Open-hearted and quick to inspire (and be inspired), the Sagittarius personality type makes for a highly effective leader and they are not at all afraid to pursue what they want – regardless of what other people think of them.
Adventurous, charming and a lover of freedom, Sagittarians tend to be enthusiastic about life and are optimistic about the future. They do not like to dwell on the misfortunes of today when they can focus their efforts to create a better opportunity tomorrow. While they can be pretty wild, fun and independent, Sagittarians are surprisingly level headed and are able to calculate and weigh the risks of a situation before diving into a project or endeavour.
Personalised Gift Suggestions for Saggitarius:
Side note: Sagittarians are always up for anything adventurous – from vacationing to lesser-known destinations to visiting avant-garde museums, they thrive in situations when given proper cultural and intellectual stimulation. Gifts related to travelling or journaling would serve them very well; while ‘cliche’ gifts like gift cards, socks or even perfume would only merit a passing glance.
So if your best friend is constantly sending you astrology memes or if your sibling insists on quoting you a passage from their daily horoscope reading and making bold claims like “I’m such a Gemini!’, chances are this gift guide will definitely help you find that perfect, one-of-a-kind gift for the astrology lovers in your life.
