ARIES: An Experience
Aries like to very much live in the moment. They don’t particularly like material things but prefer to value memories. They are also the sign that truly embraces the motto “Carpe diem.” So, instead of giving them socks or a sweater, go all out with an experience. Concert tickets, skydiving lessons or even a session of hot yoga is something an Aries would love. Look for gifts that will give them a memory they will have for a lifetime (not to mention something they can Instagram about).
TAURUS: Luxury Item
Taurus enjoys the finer things in life. When they buy something, they only get the best because they know they’re worth it. Indulge the Taurus in your life by getting a gift suited to their high-end taste. A nice bottle of wine, fancy chocolates or a cashmere blanket are all perfect gifts for the bull sign. Lest you think you need to spend more than you should, you don't have to break the bank to gift your Taurus a present. As long as if feels soft or taste good, your pal will love it.
GEMINI: Gift Cards
Gemini is difficult to shop for, mainly because they can’t make up their minds! Their wish list changes so often, it's impossible to follow. And you might buy something for them, only to find out that they don’t like it in person. Save yourself the headache and buy them a gift card to their favorite store—then they can make up their own mind. If you’re worried that a gift card feels impersonal, put the gift card in a cocktail shaker since Gemini’s love to entertain or add it to a tin of their favorite baked goods.

Cancer is the most sentimental of the signs, so giving them a journal where they can record all their thoughts, feelings, and memories is the perfect gift. A bullet journal or one of those five year journals they have been dreaming about or an old school scrapbooking kit are all thoughtful presents that gives them a wonderful emotional outlet.
LEO: Glam Gifts
The Leo in your life will love anything that helps them feel like they are the King or Queen of the Jungle. Selfie sticks, hair care products to tame that mane, makeup, jewelry and anything that makes them feels sparkly and special is at the very top of their wish list. They want to look and feel glamorous. They also wouldn’t mind anything they can use as a prop for their social media pictures. Leos also love anything with their name on it, so monogram gifts will score you big points with any Leo on your list.
VIRGO: Practical Gifts
A good rule to keep in mind when shopping for a Virgo is “What do I dread buying for myself?” And that’s what you should get a Virgo. This sign loves anything practical. When they buy anything, they want it to be functional and bonus points if it can do at least three other things. The perfect gift for a Virgo would be something they can use every day. Look at your Virgo carefully and figure out what they could use right now. Do they need a new mixer? Are their gloves getting kind of old and tattered? And you can never have too many socks. Heck, Virgo’s would be thrilled if you got them a case of batteries. Practical gifts may not seem cool but the Virgo in your life will love you for it.
LIBRA: Artsy Gifts
Libra is a very creative and artsy sign, so the natural gift would be a piece of art. Research who their favorite artists are or what kind of art they like. However, if you think they can’t fit one more picture on their walls, get them something to nurture their artistic talents. If they are a painter, get them some new paint or some canvas. If they are a writer, give them a journal and some nice pens. Or, give them the tools to get into a new artistic hobby this year.
SCORPIO: Unique Gift
Scorpios are probably the hardest sign to shop for, mainly because they are so darn secretive! We love Scorpios for their mysterious nature, except when it comes to the holidays. What’s the gift solution? Give them a present as unique as they are! Anything from a custom piece of jewelry, a one-of-a-kind painting, to an old antique will make a Scorpio happy.

SAGITTARIUS: Travel Gifts
The jet set of the zodiac, get the Sagittarius in your life something that will encourage their wanderlust. A cute passport holder, a backpack, travel guides or a camera will be perfect for their next adventure. If you are feeling a generous, gift cards to airlines or hotels are excellent gifts. Or, if you know where they are traveling next, buy tickets to a guided tour, local theatre tickets or a cooking class in the place they are traveling to.
CAPRICORN: Career Related Gifts
Capricorns are a hardworking sign, so most of the stuff on their wish list this year involves something to advance their careers. They would love a new briefcase, a faster laptop or just some new work clothes. If they are looking for a new job, buy them a few sessions with a career coach or hire someone to edit their resume and cover letter. Capricorns aren’t all work and no play; however, they also have a great sense of humor. They would also appreciate a sarcastic gag gift to put on their desk at work.
AQUARIUS: Tech Gift
Aquarius are the techies of the zodiac, possibly because they are so out of this world. They always want the latest gadget and latest “big thing” that is being released this time of year. If a new iPhone or gaming system is out of your budget, they will be happy with any accessories to accompany their new tech toy like a video game, wireless headphones, a portable charger or perhaps a gift card for some apps or streaming services. They are sure to love it—at least until the next big thing comes out.

PISCES: Homemade Gifts
Oh Pisces—they are so sentimental, its easy to make them cry with any gift. But if you really want to pull on their heartstrings this year, a handmade gift is the way to go. They'll swoon over a scrapbook made up of photos of the two of you, a knitted a scarf in their favorite color or even making them their favorite cookie will bring on the waterworks. Pisces will love knowing that you took the time to make something just for them and they will appreciate the thought you put into the gift. Even if it doesn’t come out perfect, they will treasure it forever. —Ellen Ricks
