The best gifts based on astrology
The season of giving is upon us—but that can also mean a season of struggling to find the perfect, personalized gift to suit everyone on your Nice List. Sure, gift cards are an easy, default option, but is there anything more fun than finding the perfect gift and then watching your loved one open it? As long as it’s not one of these funny Christmas gifts people actually received, we think not.
Astrologer Rebecca Gordon is here to help by suggesting the ideal token of affection that will complement every astrological trait. From active Aries to peaceful Pisces, these are the sweet gifts that will make your friends, family, and coworkers know you are thinking of them.

Aries (March 21-April 19): The Very Hungry Caterpillar Tote Bag
As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries is also the most youthful. These special folks are all fire and incredibly active, Gordon says. A sweet tote sporting the cover of one of everyone’s favorite childhood stories ensures they can take everything they need with them—since they’re usually on the go. Other smart choices are the Zomake Hiking Backpack, which is lightweight, folds up into a small pouch, and provides a smart way to pack lighter when you travel, and this beautiful customizable insulated water bottle that comes in more than 40 colors.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Zodiac Stone Terrarium
Earthy Taurus is in tune with nature and all things beautiful, which is why this small air plant, packaged in a cut-glass vase with pebbles and a sweet zodiac-inspired stone, makes the perfect gift. Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus—patron of the arts and beauty, Gordon says, and these connoisseurs of the sensual world will love the highest quality in all accessories such as bags, soft gloves, and scarves. This mulberry silk scarf is a stand-out in Taurus’ favorite color—emerald green—while this handwoven jute rug adds a natural, sensual appeal to a Taureans cozy living space. Bulls would also like one of these pampering gifts for self-care.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): Drunk Elephant Hair + Body Trunk 1.0
The twins of the zodiac, Gemini is known for its dual nature—they’re the types who can spend the day racing cars while still creating the perfect skincare routine when they get home at night. This complete hair and body collection includes a glossing shampoo, conditioner, scalp scrub, detangling mist, creamy body cleanser, lotion, and soothing deodorant cream. “Geminis are ruled by Mercury, the planet of communications, and love to learn and discover more than anything,” Gordon says. Excellent gift options include a guided journal and life planner with plenty of room for jotting down their thoughts and these wireless Bluetooth headphones that come in trendy shades that appeal to this fashion-forward air sign. Other options to consider are these cool tech gifts you’ll want to keep for yourself.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Carefree Threads
Ruled by the moon, sweet Cancer feels most comfortable at home and loves cozy, soft anything, Gordon says—think slippers, soft bedding, sleepwear, and eye masks. This lightweight, super-soft loungewear set by Hello Mello will have them feeling like they are one with the couch, while this cozy weighted blanket, which comes in 20 colors and prints and ranges in weight from 5 to 30 pounds, helps them relax and unwind after a stressful day. Cancer is also known for being the best cook in the zodiac—this 2-basket air fryer will allow your favorite crab to take their cooking to a whole new level in no time, meaning less time in the kitchen and more time cozying up by the fire. Check out these best friend gifts for every type of friend.
Leo (July 23-August 22): Korres Golden Krocus Ageless Saffron Elixir Serum
Leo’s are a fire sign, ruled by the sun and known for their love of luxury, glamour, and all that glitters, Gordon says. It doesn’t get more decadent than this golden face serum made with fresh Greek saffron and harvested from Krocus flowers and a blend of other amazing ingredients. You will rarely meet a Leo who prefers earthy over extravagant, which is why this ornate clutch and espresso maker will make their lion hearts sing. Remember: you can indulge in more over-the-top whimsy with the Leo in your life.
Virgo (August 23-September 22): Blue Sky Weekly & Monthly Planner
That one friend who has everyone’s birthday parties thoughtfully planned months in advance? Chances are she’s a Virgo. Virgos are known to love organization and favor practical gifts that will make their life run more smoothly, Gordon says. This weekly and monthly planner provides plenty of space for long-term planning, as well as a contacts page and notes section. Other gifts that help Virgo declutter their lives and stay organized include this travel-friendly electronics organizer for cables, chargers, and phones and this sweet rotating makeup organizer with adjustable racks and enough space for skincare products, cosmetics, and up to 30 makeup brushes.
Libra (September 23-October 22): Dyson Airwrap
Libra is constantly seeking balance in life and searching for clever, multitasking solutions to problems. The Dyson Airwrap allows you to blow dry and style hair in one simple step, leaving plenty of time for the rest of her beauty routine. As it turns out, beauty routines are a great source of comfort to this sign. “Libras are ruled by Venus and adore the rituals of beautification—think gorgeous skincare products, bath oils, and salts,” Gordon says. You can’t go wrong with something like a Dead Sea salt body scrub that exfoliates and nourishes skin with essential oils and coconut. And after your Libra is sufficiently hydrated, styled, and ready to go, this non-slip yoga mat with a carrying strap helps them achieve balance in Warrior II pose. She’ll also love any of these unique gifts for women.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Cat Tarot Card Deck
Intense, passionate, and fearless, Scorpio is a water sign that harbors an interest in the occult and unseen world, Gordon says. These sexy, mysterious beings would get a kick out of this cat tarot card deck that celebrates their spirit animal. The deck of 78 cards has a sense of humor but is equally ideal for the seasoned and novice reader. A sensual perfume set is always a gift Scorpio can appreciate, as are these beautiful crystal Scotch glasses that sparkle with each sip. Find out which zodiac signs should never date each other.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): Vivere Double Cotton Hammock
Sagittarius is the eternal wanderer and the sign that seeks excitement and learning in new places and experiences. This double hammock supports their passion for adventure by providing a sturdy, comfortable place for them to rest (once they’re finally ready to take a breather). It holds up to 450 pounds and comes with its own stand, which means there’s no need to attach it to a tree. “Sagittarians are ruled by Jupiter, planet of abundance,” Gordon says. “More than anything, a Sagittarius will love to receive gifts of travel and experiences or even travel books.” Indulge in their wanderlust with gifts like this carry-on suitcase which is equipped with a removable battery that can charge their phone and help them stay connected during their travels, or The Bucket List, a travel book with 1,000 dream travel adventures. Be sure to check out these gifts for the jet setter in your life.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Wolf & Irving Table Linens
Capricorns love family, food, and gathering family and friends so that they can plan the perfect dinner party. These pretty and eco-friendly table linens add a dose of whimsical watercolor to the table, but they’re also sturdy and washable, which appeals to this Earth sign’s practicality. Ever notice your favorite Capricorn is never late to a meeting or event? “Capricorn’s are ruled by Saturn (the planet which ruled time) so stylish watches and clocks will be the perfect gift,” Gordon says. This sunrise alarm clock brightens gradually before the alarm goes off to mimic natural sunlight and make mornings less jarring. And these natural Himalayan pink salt bath salts encourage hard-working Caps to take a rest.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18): Tribal Warrior Chess Set
Non-stop thinkers, Aquarians love a good mental challenge, which is why this chess set, carved from hornbeam and sycamore wood, is such a thrilling gift. But this is also a sign that truly appreciates advancements in technology, as well. “Aquarians are ruled by Uranus, the planet that rules technology and all the gadgets that make life easier,” Gordon says. “A chic modern aesthetic will be the way with this sign.” Impress an Aquarian with Amazon’s Echo Dot smart home technology that controls everything from music, to lights, thermostats, and more, and responds to voice commands. This air sign is known for its humanitarian nature—each purchase of this smartphone case provides funds to bring medicine, school supplies, and sustainable agriculture to remote villages in the Andes Mountains. These are more beautiful gifts that give back.
Pisces (February 19-March 20): BulbHead 10-piece Copper-Infused Ceramic Non-Stick Cookware Set
This water sign loves good times and will have a blast cooking and serving up fancy cocktails to the ones they love. A 10-piece set of copper-infused ceramic non-stick cookware gives Pisces the tools they need to show off their gourmet flair and experiment in the kitchen. Pisces are ruled by Neptune, which is the planet of transcendence, Gordon says. A Pisces will always love perfumes, photography, and music—basically, anything that transports them. Help Pisces brush up on their smartphone photography skills and take professional-looking photos with this smartphone lens kit that includes an attachable wide-angle lens and macro lens. Nostalgic and sensitive Pisces will also adore this retro-looking Victrola 3-speed Bluetooth turntable. You should also consider one of these subscription boxes for everyone on your list.
