Do you struggle every year trying to find Christmas gifts that suit your family and friend’s personalities?
I certainly do, and so I end up buying way too many candles and mugs. This is why, this year, I am going to make it personal and shop according to zodiac signs.
Here is what every zodiac sign wants this Christmas:
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns like to be busy, have a competitive spirit, and enjoy games. A thoughtful gift for any Capricorn this Christmas would be The Christmas Story version of Monopoly for $24.99.
This will provide the competitive play many Capricorns will be seeking. Just be aware—Capricorns are very determined and motivated, which most likely will result in them winning multiple rounds.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
Aquariuses are known for their generous nature and the constant need to be doing something. This is why a great gift for an Aquarius this Christmas is a Flex watch. For a reasonable cost of $35, these watches are not only colorful and eccentric, but each watch represents a charitable cause such as cancer, clean water, animal rescue, etc., and 10% of the purchase price goes to each specific charity.
Plus, Aquarians are usually busy people with multiple tasks at hand, so this watch will also keep them punctual and on time for all of their various activities.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces possess artistic minds. This is why a gift card to Painting with a Twist is a great gift idea for these art lovers. Painting with a Twist puts on group parties with the stellar combination of learning to paint while drinking wine. I don’t know many people who would not enjoy this combo.
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Aries tend to be determined and competitive individuals who enjoy athletics. A thoughtful gift for your Aries friend could be a gym membership. Popular gyms such as 24 Hour Fitness have promotional offers all of the time, and for many gyms, you can buy just a month membership. This would be put to much better use than that coffee mug you were thinking about giving them.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
A lot of Tauruses enjoy working with their hands, being outside, and enjoying nature. This gardening tool seat is perfect for a Taurus’s desire to be productive and within the natural world. It not only is made out of quality material, but it also is portable, folds, and stands, making it ideal for gardeners on the move. It even can be used as a simple chair.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Cancers are known for being loyal and family-oriented. A perfect gift this Christmas for a Cancer would be a personalized family photo canvas. You can customize it with family photos, and your gift will be a sentimental welcome in any home’s entrance.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Geminis are curious individuals who enjoy learning about an array of different topics, so a perfect gift for them this Christmas would be a magazine subscription. Not only will your Gemini friend enjoy reading about anything from cooking to hunting, but they will also receive a gift that arrives all throughout the year! There are subscriptions to some magazines on Amazon that run as little as $5.00 annually!
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leos are known as comedic and dramatic types. Most enjoy social outings, so a thoughtful Christmas gift for this zodiac sign is a movie gift card. I prefer Fandango because they can be used at multiple theaters.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Virgos tend to be animal lovers, so a good investment for them this Christmas is a customized pet painting. Yes, you heard me. Sites like Portrait Painting will paint a portrait of your furry pal for $79. You also could try Etsy, which has artists doing this as well.
A cheaper option is downloading an app like Waterlogue ($2.99) on iTunes, which takes a photo and turns it into a beautiful painting. You can then print it out at a photo kiosk for an affordable version of this gift that will satisfy any pet-loving Virgo.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Libras are known for their peaceful and harmonic balance. A unique Christmas gift for these individuals would be a desk Zen garden. Zen gardens originated in medieval Japan and are known for promoting serenity and contemplation: attributes that are quite common in Libras.
The Zen garden is a mini version that comes with sand, rocks, a candle, and a rake. Any Libra can calmly relax while making patterns in the sand.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios tend to love music and reading, so how about a combination of both? The Rolling Stone book, 500 Greatest Albums of All Time is a necessity for any music lover. This gift would provide your Scorpio more resources to build upon his music collection.
It will also provide the mental stimulation that many Scorpios thrive on.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
The Sagittarius maintains a strong passion for travel; they may seem like they are always going somewhere and would benefit this Christmas from a travel-sized items subscription. The minimus box is just that, for $20.00 a month a whole basket of travel-sized items come to your door, or if you’d like to take a cheaper route, just buy this Burt’s Bees travel kit for a one-time fee of $10.00.
