Whether you're a 'I could never date them because they're a Leo and it wouldn't work out' type, or just like to think there's some sort of sense to our personalities, it's undeniable that star signs are back in a big way. Once a staple of 90s magazines, star signs can give us some steer on what people might be into — which is particularly handy when it comes to birthdays. Here's what to gift the people you love in your life depending on where they are in the Zodiac.
Aries: March 21 – April 19
This sign is purpose-led and is most likely currently working on their side-hustle or a new career. Practical gifts are probably most appreciated — from a teapot to keep them going, or a brand new notepad they can show up to a meeting with.
Taurus: April 20 – May 20
Taurus' are ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty — so why not gift them something to up their skincare routine or to help aid their beauty sleep. Anything pretty is bound to be appreciated.
Gemini: May 21 – June 20
Ahh...the one that's always a bit tricky to buy for, due to their huge range of interests and hobbies. You can bet on anything yoga, reading or activity-related being a surefire way to bring them a smile.
Cancer: June 21 – July 22
You'll need something truly unique for a Cancer — something average just won't cut it, sorry. We suggest something for the home, such as a cosy throw or print they can show off.
Leo: July 23 – Aug. 22
The one that's never single, your generous and huge-hearted Leo loves things they can share with others. Think handcrafted wine or food sets, for a thoughtful present they might share with you if you're lucky.
Virgo: Aug. 23 – Sept. 22
Virgos will probably consider your thought of gifting them something the real gift. Something for their self-care routine would go down a treat, such as a gua sha tool or plastic-free bathroom essentials.
Libra: Sept. 23 – Oct. 22
Forever changing their look but always a style maven, your Libra chameleon would definitely appreciate the latest in sustainable fashion, or some fashion-forward loungewear.
Scorpio: Oct. 23 – Nov. 21
Always the one down for an emotional chat, these deep Scorpios require something ultra-personal. From home fragrances that remind them of a trip you took together, to prints of their favourite tipple, it's time for extra thought.
Sagittarius: Nov. 22 – Dec. 21
Adventure called, it wants their Sagittarius back. Always in go-mode this star sign requires gifts it can use on-the-go — from reusable water bottles, lunch boxes and more.
Capricorn: Dec. 22 – Jan. 19
The one that values quality over quantity, Capricorns have an extraordinary eye for detail. We love some handcrafted homeware and interiors that they can regale their guests with (because they also love when you ask where something's from).
Aquarius: Jan. 20 – Feb. 18
Aquarius are always a little...off the beaten track. Pick them up something quirky and they'll love you for it. From a deodorant applicator to handmade coffee spoon, make sure it's something as unique as them.
Pisces: Feb. 19 – March 20
Something sweet will never go amiss with a Pisces. Gift them a thoughtful food set, or something they can cosy up with. Our pick? We're wrapping our nearest Pisces a handmade cushion for their room.
