No matter how much you plan and prepare, last minute holiday shopping is something that is practically unavoidable. Whether it’s the hard-to-shop-for family member or the friend who has it all, there always seems to be a few lingering names on our lists every year.
If you are at a loss for where to start, look to the stars for a few ideas. Take the stress out of holiday shopping with our guide to gift giving based on their zodiac sign!
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 - FEBRUARY 18)
An Aquarius is loving, intelligent and has a passion for making the world a better place. When it comes to gifting our charitable friends and family members, it is best to give gifts that also give back. One of our favorites is STATE Bags, for every backpack and bag sold, STATE donates to schools and children in need across the country.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 - MARCH 20)
For the friendly, creative and musical Pisces, give the gift of concert tickets to their favorite band or the latest musical to hit Broadway. If you are operating on a budget, like many of us are, opt for a subscription to Spotify!
ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 19)
The active Aries can finish more before lunch than anyone else you know and never hits snooze on their alarm. Give the Aries in your life the gift of that trendy new workout class they have been dying to try...even if you might not be going with them!
TAURUS (APRIL 20 - MAY 20)
Powerful, ambitious and reliable, a Taurus is the overachiever in your friend group. Born to be a politician or entrepreneur, the best gift to give a Taurus is something that complements their productive lifestyle including a complete kit of stunning stationery from one of our favorites, Rifle Paper Co.
GEMINI (MAY 21 - JUNE 20)
Gifting a Gemini can be quite difficult because this sign represents two very different personalities. On one hand, a Gemini can be sociable and charismatic, and on the other, they are known for being introverted, thoughtful and restless. The perfect gifts to thrill any Gemini are some classic bar cart essentials. They’re the ideal entertaining gifts, whether the Gemini you know likes to stay in with their girls or host a New Year’s Eve bash.
CANCER (JUNE 21 - JULY 22)
Cancer’s are nurturing, creative and general homebodies with an old soul. The best gifts to leave under the tree for a Cancer sign are ones that remind them of home, while making their own space cozier. This season, we will be gifting the Cancers in our circle art prints of their home state. Our personal favorites are from Evelyn Henson’s map and state flower series.
LEO (JULY 23 - AUGUST 22)
A Leo is dramatic, confident and often leans toward the finer things in life. They like to have a good time and are extremely sociable. This year, give the gift of a little glamour with a beautiful set of stunning studs from BaubleBar.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23 - SEPTEMBER 22)
Virgos are the ultimate intellectuals – they love wandering the aisles of the library and taking up a new hobby just for the sake of learning something new. The perfect gift for the Virgo in your life is something that challenges them to learn a new skill, like a crash course in cooking or art classes.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 - OCTOBER 22)
Known for being harmonious, diplomatic and fair-minded, Libras are the Lady Justices of the zodiac signs. Needing constant mental stimuli, the best gift to give a Libra is a card or board game (and you can bet that they are going to call everyone out if they don’t play by the rules).
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 - NOVEMBER 21)
Whether it’s having an exquisite social life or excelling at work, a Scorpio leads a full and fierce life. You can also bet that the Scorpio in your life has curated quite the home for themselves, and what better gift to give than something that helps set the mood. Enter Bijou’s signature gift sets, a perfectly curated bundle of a full size candle, a rose quartz crystal, decorative matchbox and reusable gift bag.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 - DECEMBER 21)
A Sagittarius is daring and adventurous – they are the world travelers of the zodiac signs and actively seek out independence through their globetrotting tendencies. Give the gift of breezing through TSA more fashionably with a monogrammed leather passport case.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 - JANUARY 19)
For the responsible and hardworking Capricorns, the perfect gift can be as simple as stationery or office decor. For the Kate Middleton’s and Michelle Obama’s in your life, opt for the planner that will make all their organization and time management dreams come true – the Day Designer.
