Zodiac signs can tell us a lot about ourselves — our personalities, motivations, affinities and more. So, it only makes sense that star signs can help us decode one of the hardest parts of life: buying gifts.
All jokes aside, there’s something undeniably reassuring about turning to the stars to help make gift-giving a bit easier. Maybe you find comfort in grounding your gift within a celestial framework rather than just haphazard guessing. Or maybe, it’s the natural inspiration that comes from thinking through a friend’s personality and desires on a mystic level. Whatever it is, gift ideas for zodiac signs are super thoughtful and well-intentioned.
Whether shopping for your practical and perfectionist Virgo friend or browsing for your sultry and edgy Scorpio pal, consider these zodiac-inspired gifts written in the stars (celestial-based satisfaction guaranteed). Check out these gift ideas for each zodiac sign that your friend definitely won’t be regifting.
1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Studiocult Flame Bag, $113 (Orig. $150)
Bold and fiery Aries people love gifts that are as attention-grabbing as they are. This punchy flame purse with a two-toned vegan leather construction perfectly represents the fire sign. The blazing bag functions both as a clutch and crossbody and features a metal matchstick zipper pull for a dose of whimsy. Your Aries friend no doubt has the confidence and personality to pull off this statement bag.
2. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Earth sign Taurus is a quality-conscious homebody with an appreciation for all things relaxing and sensual. A spa gift set, like this one from Uncommon Goods, is a no-brainer for your Taurus friend. The patchwork cotton robe is both comforting and grounded in natural fabrics, while a fresh-scented bath bomb and geode tea light candles create that perfect bathtub ambiance. Blooming tea pods add another layer of warmth to this gift set — and as far as the best gift ideas for zodiac signs are concerned, any Taurus will appreciate this.
3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Swarovski Lilia Y Necklace, $129.50 (Orig. $185)
A true outgoing social butterfly, Gemini is unafraid of funky and maximalist fashion. This delightfully noughties butterfly necklace by Swarovski is just the thing for your style-oriented, playful friend. The collection of winged butterflies also plays upon Gemini’s twin depiction in mythology, making this necklace even more meaningful.
4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Calhoun & Co. Makeup Icon Woven Throw Blanket, $129 (Orig. $134)
With a love of all things feminine and retro, your Cancer friend will adore this makeup-themed throw as a gift. With vintage-inspired perfume bottles and makeup iconography, this bold blanket plays up Cancer’s love for all things prim and polished. When it comes to style and decor, those born under the water sign love a mix of classic sophistication and main character energy — which describes this gift to a T.
5. Leo (July 23 – August 22)
A blazing fire sign, Leos gravitate toward warm-toned gold hues and luxury. These show-stopping Baublebar earrings are the perfect gift for your Leo friend who has a taste for drama and luxury. The celestial-inspired earrings evoke a sun’s rays or a lion’s mane, both perfect for Leos, a sign ruled by the sun and represented by a fierce and loyal lion.
6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Courant CATCH:3 Charging Tray, $85 (Orig. $100)
Ever practical and meticulous, Virgo is one for gifts that are minimal, functional and stylistically sensible. Give them a guaranteed useful gift with this charging tray by Courant. While one side is a wireless charger, the other is a sleek catchall tray for your organized friend’s essentials. Your Virgo pal will appreciate the gift that keeps their bedside table tidy.
7. Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Represented by balancing scales, Libras like to consider all sides of an argument — or hear all of the juicy gossip. This cheeky needlepoint pillow playfully points to your Libra friend’s social (and slightly meddling) nature. Libras are also a fan of eclectic, cheery decor, making this statement pillow pure perfection for your bestie’s curated space.
8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios are moody, rebellious and undeniably sexy. To enhance your friend’s edgy and alluring nature, gift them an eyeshadow palette that perfects a lethal smoky eye. This Natasha Denona palette has cool-toned blacks and neutral hues that work together to create a sultry beauty look fit for a Scorpio. Your friend will drop jaws while wearing the shimmering shades — as it should be.
9. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
A maximalist to the core, Sagittarius loves brash and bright fashion that is over-the-top and daring. Celebrity-favorite brand Ian Charms crafts beaded necklaces that are a little more luxe than your crafted Taylor Swift concert bracelets. Your Sag friend will appreciate the bold and colorful accessory that compliments their lively and energetic personality.
10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Chanel N°5 Eau de Parfum, $135
Capricorns are all about sophistication with a penchant for the classics. Gift those born under the earth sign the most timeless fragrance — Chanel N°5. Widely beloved for more than 100 years, this designer perfume is floral and feminine yet mysterious, with notes of sandalwood and neroli. Your Capricorn friend will appreciate the everyday practicality of the scent, while the fragrance’s deeper notes satisfy their ties to the earth and winter.
11. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius, an air sign paradoxically noted for its tie to water, has symbolic connotations to the life-giving water bearer. Reminiscent of both air and water, these ice-blue cloud sunnies by Poppy Lissiman are tailor-made for the confident and individualistic star sign. Aquarius loves quirky and adventurous style — and these unique shades undoubtedly make a style splash.
12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
As perhaps the most noted water sign, Pisces people love whimsical gifts with an ethereal air. This cute-as-can-be jellyfish air planter makes for the perfect gift for Pisces, who tend to have strong ties to the sea. It’s unique and unexpected, yet grounded in the star sign’s affinity for all things aquatic.
