The Definitive Holiday Gift Guide For Each Sign In The Zodiac

by Jen Ruiz

Still looking for last-minute gifts?

Stumped by the one person on your list who seemingly has it all?

Well, you don't have to agonize over what to get friends and loved ones. Just let the stars be your guide!

Here is your definitive gift-giving guide, by astrological sign:

1. Capricorn

Let's start with the birthday sign.

Capricorns are drawn to intellectual stimulation, so a rare book or original painting by a promising artist would be well-received.

Capricorns also value family, so three tickets to a show or museum — with the option to invite their parents or siblings — wins you major bonus points.

Stay away from anything cheap or tawdry.

A Capricorn woman would rather have a .02 karat diamond than an entire tennis bracelet made of cubic zirconia.

2. Aquarius

Aquarius is fun and likes the unconventional.

A unique gift, such as a hand-carved trinket, would be better than anything mass produced.

Aquarius also excels at socializing, so a luxurious and sophisticated fragrance would be put to good use this holiday season.

3. Pisces

Pisces radiates in colors of the sea.

A pale green or blue scarf would be a great gift for a friend, and amethyst or aquamarine jewelry would be perfect for those who are more than friends.

Those born under this sign also thoroughly enjoy liquids, so tea, coffee or hot chocolate sets are all safe bets.

4. Aries

Aries like action.

They would be thrilled with tickets to a sporting event or concert, if you can afford to go all out.

If you're on a budget, search local deal sites for classes involving a new experience like boxing, skiing or anything else to keep Aries on their toes.

5. Taurus

A Taurus man has very masculine and conservative tastes.

A bottle of fine wine or an extravagant home-cooked dinner would appeal to his need for classic comforts.

A Taurus woman loves high-end items.

An emerald necklace or leather-bound day planner are sure to please.

6. Gemini

It's good to keep Gemini guessing, so variety is key in gift-giving.

Try making a basket of food or bath products with each individual item wrapped separately.

Their natural curiosity will make them love the added layer of mystery.

Gemini are also spontaneous and love to travel, so travel accessories like an eye mask or pillow are great gift ideas for your colleagues or boss.

7. Cancer

A Cancer is sensitive and nostalgic.

Find an old photo with friends, or of a family member that your Cancer strongly resembles, and restore it.

A silver-engraved frame is a nice choice for presentation.

Anything that enhances the home is also generally welcome, including fancy cooking utensils or even a hour or two of maid service.

8. Leo

Leos like to flaunt their manes, so give them something to help them make an entrance.

An eye-catching accessory, like a designer watch or extravagant hairpiece, would be sure to please.

You also can't go wrong with a DVD box set of their favorite television show, as Leos tends to have a flair for the dramatic.

9. Virgo

With Virgos, it's truly the thought that counts.

They value efficiency, so aim for something you know would make their lives easier, like an appliance their kitchen is missing or jewelry organizer if their necklaces get tangled often.

Virgos also love to read, so a Nook or Kindle gift card makes the perfect, quick gift.

10. Libra

For Libras, try to make your gift memorable.

A spa day or surprise weekend getaway with all their friends would be a big hit.

For those looking to spend a little less but still impress, Libras love music, so a new CD from their favorite artist or iTunes gift card would play well with this sign.

11. Scorpio

A piece of exotic jewelry would work well for Scorpio, male or female, such as an amulet or vintage charm.

Scorpios are also sensuous by nature, so a naughty couple's gift would be appropriate for those in romantic relationships, and candles or slippers would be a good platonic options.

12. Sagittarius

Most born under the Sagittarius sign would enjoy something they can wear outdoors, like driving gloves or a warm winter hat.

You also can't go wrong with appealing to their sense of humor with comedy show tickets or a funny movie.

Hopefully this guide helps you find the right gift for every sign on your list.

Happy holidays!
