Aries Holiday Gifts: Make it original
As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries are the influencers and innovators among us. These trailblazers love to be the first ones premiering a cutting-edge style or next-level gadget. With 2022’s eclipses in their financial houses, how about gifting your Ram an NFT (non-fungible token) or some cryptocurrency? When selecting a gift for these true originals think limited edition, customized and even one-of-a-kind. Treat Aries to sneakers from a limited-edition drop or pick up tickets to a VIP experience (even if you’re on the waiting list for 6 months).
Since Aries rules the head, they’d happily rock a statement chapeau or a colorful pair of headphones. These athletic daredevils would appreciate any equipment too; be sure to include safety gear like helmets. Red—or some variation like violet, orange or magenta—is this fire sign’s signature hue, so anything with a pop of crimson will bring them joy.
GIFT: An NFT (currently Ethereum is the token of trade for NFTs), like these animated psychedelic loops created by Astrostyle’s own Aries featured artist Grande Dame.
Note: If your giftee is new to the digital asset world, you’ll both need to set up a crypto wallet on a site like Coinbase. Then, send them an NFT collectible from a site like OpenSea, Rarible or Nifty Gateway.)
Taurus Holiday Gifts: Timeless and tasteful
Understated elegance is the hallmark of Taurean taste. Regale them with quality goods that are built to last. Just skip the trendy numbers or anything that edges near the kitsch category. Plastic is so NOT fantastic with this crew. As an earth sign they appreciate natural materials, like stone and reclaimed wood and delicately tooled leather. Fine aromas, too, so a luxe scented candle or fragrance always goes over well.
Taurus are associated with the neck and throat, so stuff their stockings with a decadent cashmere scarf or tiny, twinkling charm necklace. They’re also homebodies so they’ll appreciate anything that helps them entertain in style. Since they like to build collections of fine objects, you might get them their “starter kit” of stemware or some baking accouterments from a high-end line that they can add to over the years.
GIFT: These clay-dipped wall planters from The Jungalow are earthy and elegant, just like your Bull.
Gemini Holiday Gifts: A present with a story
Let’s give them something to talk about! That could surely be the Gemini motto. As the zodiac’s effusive communicator, this sign craves a gift that doubles as a conversation piece. Does the designer have a fascinating backstory? Were the goods sourced from a far-flung corner of the world and crafted by the finest makers in the region? Give a Gemini something that arouses people’s curiosity—this social sign loves talking to strangers and they’ll consider the icebreaker a triple bonus. Friends are everything to a Gemini and their mobile phones and cameras are never far from reach. Help these gadget freaks deck out their devices with custom covers—if they’re not into wild colors, pick unusual textures like faux fur, embossed leather and snakeskin.
Geminis rule the hands and wrists: A set of stacked rings, beaded bracelets or a statement watch make their dramatic gesturing more fun to watch. Easily distracted, they have a habit of leaving keys and IDs in random places. A wristlet and easy-to-spot keychain could be the gift that keeps on giving.
GIFT: With success in the stars for Geminis this year, they’ll love a baller accessory like this vintage money clip from Stone Cooper
Cancer Holiday Gifts: Cozy up their nest
‘Tis the season to be a Cancer, a time to tuck away in a cozy shell with our nearest and dearest close by. This family-oriented sign adores an intimate gathering—give them first dibs on hosting for the holidays: always a win-win. Then, bless their nests with classic accouterments that will stand the test of time like a cashmere throw for their couch-cuddling time, a bedside reading lamp (they love their literature!) or a set of copper-bottomed pans if they’re the epicurean types (many are).
Cancer governs the chest area so they might appreciate a tie with a cool graphic pattern, a long pendant necklace or a jacket with a shearling collar to keep them all bundled up. As water signs, the bathtub is another favorite place so treat them to a set of scented salts and bubbles for their soak—or a relaxing hydrotherapy treatment at an elegant spa.
GIFT: This Cancer candle from Homesick hits all the right notes for your empathic Crab.
Leo Holiday Gifts: Luxury and pampering
Proud, regal Leos are also big kids at heart. While they adore the finer things in life, they’ll take their luxury with a playful twist and a liberal sprinkling of fairy dust. Leos are the life of the party, whether they’re sashaying down the step-and-repeat or hosting the soiree of the century. They’ll always appreciate unique clothes or chic, colorful serveware—not to mention a pair of tickets to a live performance.
Since Leo rules the back, any massaging devices or spa certificates are always appreciated. If your Leo has accomplished a major milestone, turn the photos and press clippings of their journey into a scrapbook. Or have one of their awards professionally framed to hang in their offices. Lights, camera, action! The lens loves a Leo so treat your lion to a photo shoot or upgrade their phones to a model with a great front-facing lens for premium selfies.
GIFT: Give your Leo the gift of 24/7 massages with this deluxe Theragun set.
Virgo Holiday Gifts: It’s in the details
The devil is in the details when it comes to curating for a Virgo. Forget generic. This sign notices everything and has an appreciation for the handcrafted, sartorial and unique. Since Virgos are perfectionists, quality is a must. But they also have a sense of humor! A hint of cutesy and kitsch—when done artfully—will go over well. (Now you know what to do with that set of 50s tiki glasses.)
As an earth sign, Virgo appreciates natural materials. This sign has an affinity for objects in pure “virginal” white, like soft cotton tees and undyed wool sweaters, or crisp linens in taupes and grays. Crafty Virgos love making things by hand, so wrap up a DIY kit and they’ll be entertained for hours. Ruled by raconteur Mercury, presents that have a history behind them give chatty Virgos even more to talk about. Pop by an estate sale or antique market for a storied collectible, like an antique typewriter or vintage bar set.
GIFT: Artist Moses Sun fuses hip-hop, jazz, afro-futurism, and the black southern diaspora of his childhood into this collection of prints. Pssst! He also customizes sneakers upon request.
Libra Holiday Gifts: Keep it classy
Ruled by romantic, artistic Venus, Libra is the astrological aesthete. As a rule, their presents have got to be pretty. Colorful art prints, luxury brand apparel, fine jewelry: shop around, because their tastes tend towards the impeccable. Are their tastes a tad too rich for your budget? As the sign that rules justice, they would appreciate a charitable donation made in their name. Be sure to add a sampler of artisanal chocolates for a stocking stuffer. The Libra sweet tooth is unparalleled.
A gift certificate to a bookstore—or even an oversized coffee table art book—is perfect for this literary sign. Relationships are Libra’s true passion, so think in twos: a pair of tickets to a concert, dinner for two at a fine restaurant or a weekend a deux at a vinyard.
GIFT: This Pound Jewelry Pendulum necklace helps your indecisive Libra choose “yes or no,” and look good doing it!
Scorpio Holiday Gifts: A journey within
It’s “all noir, all the time” for simmering, mystical Scorpios. When shopping for this sign, reach for leather jackets, nail polish, shoes and accessories in this smoldering hue. True originals, they treasure one-of-a-kind pieces, rare finds, and indie labels that make them stand out from the pack. This 007 sign knows that the eyes are the windows to the soul, and they only show theirs selectively. Gift them a pair of high-end sunglasses or a wide-brimmed hat for their undercover missions (like their under-the-radar coffee runs).
Private Scorpios treasure time at home. Their abodes are always well appointed. If you can nail their specific tastes, a throw pillow, art print or highball set might be just the thing. Throw in a deck of divination cards or a book about decoding different personality types. They love to learn about what really makes human beings tick.
GIFT: The Endless Sky is a collection of life-changing essays by one of our cosmic heroes, evolutionary astrologer Steven Forrest.
Sagittarius Holiday Gifts: Adventure and learning
Globetrotting Sagittarians are always on the move! Help them travel in style with a chic laptop case, luggage set or an oversized tote bag that takes them from dawn to dusk. Make their commutes more edifying with headphones, tablets or sound system upgrades for their cars. As the zodiac’s cultural ambassadors, they dig anything with an international flair, like embroidered throw pillows, tunic tops, or jewelry with ancient, meaningful symbols.
Sagittarians also love to learn. Gift them a beautiful book—even a cookbook or online since they are ruled by the planet Jupiter, god of the feast. Anything for the kitchen will be treasured and put to good use, especially if it helps them live healthily and sustainably during a year of eclipses in the “green” houses of their chart. These truth-seekers are always ready to grow and improve. Pay their tuition for a self-development workshop and they’ll never stop thanking you for changing their lives.
GIFT: The Bamboozle Indoor Food Composter keeps your outdoorsy Sagittarius in sync with the earth.
Capricorn Holiday Gifts: Understated elegance
Quality over quantity is the Capricorn rule of thumb. Skip the tiny stocking stuffers and save up for one big gift—you might even pool funds with friends and relatives to pull off the level of luxury they live for. Since their careers largely define them, they’ll appreciate a high end “tool” that is appropriate for their industry. Think: a camera bag or a skillfully designed (and useful!) object that gives them instant office cred…and inspires a little envy, too. Hey, they are the sign of status. A haute business card holder, mahogany leather chair or luxe pen will also wow. Just opt for understated elegance instead of anything ostentatiously blingy.
As an earth sign, Capricorn leans towards healthy living. They’d appreciate a nice blender or juicer to keep them vital and radiant. Rumor has it Caps age in reverse! If you’re buying for a Capricorn who is over 35, you’ll have an easier time pulling from the fun category. Treat this athletic sign to sports equipment or a membership to a fancy gym with a sauna and juice bar.
GIFT: Frederic Malle Essential Collection a timeless and curated selection of six 3.5ml sprays by this iconic French perfume house
Aquarius Holiday Gifts: Denim and devices
Sharing is caring for team-spirited Aquarius—it’s just more fun if their friends can play along! Opt for interactive gifts like a bartop mixology set, a block of concert tickets or even a weekend rental of a ski house where they can enjoy an athletic getaway with their squad. As the zodiac’s techies, digital devices go over well: video game consoles, tablets, DJ equipment or anything to customize their devices.
As the zodiac’s humanitarians, they’d be thrilled if you made a donation in their name. Originality catches the Aquarius eye. Better still if you appeal to their wacky senses of humor. Nothing wrong with dropping a hat with kitten ears or a unicorn beer koozie in the Aquarius stocking. If it brings the laughs when they put it on display they’ll rock it regularly. Or keep them in their favorite uniform of denim and statement sneakers. They have a serious side too! Reach for books on philosophy, metaphysics, or anything sci-fi. Or how about a chemistry set or a mind-expanding self-development workshop? Life is a magical lab and an endless journey for this future-forward sign!
GIFT: Dress your Aquarius in “hip, sustainable, socially responsible, and one of a kind” Cura Denim, hand-embroidered by Muntaha of Refugee Artisan Initiative
Pisces Holiday Gifts: Spa party
Gift shopping for a Pisces can be a fantastic voyage within itself. (Why yes they do believe in magic!) This sign leans toward the dreamy, ethereal and otherworldly, so don’t be surprised if you float into a crystal store or a heavenly spa to pick up their presents. Anything that transports Pisces will be a hit! Gift them dinner at their favorite oyster bar, pack a basket with luxe, scented bath products (always good for a water sign). Send them off for a weekend yoga and meditation retreat. Music is major for this sign! Create playlists for your Pisces and wrap up a pair of noise-cancelling headphones so they can flow through their days in a sonic bliss bubble.
Since Pisces rule the feet, they know that the shoes make the outfit. Spring for statement sneakers, chic ankle boots or sophisticated slippers in their size. This sensitive and artistic sign loves a DIY project. Wrap up a kit of supplies and you’ll keep your Pisces so busy, they’ll banish the winter blues.
GIFT: Support your favorite Fish with high-tech footwear, like the Sootheez “3D Extremely Comfy/Thick Sootheez Slippers that absorb shock and come in delightful hues
