Aries (21st March – 19th April)

Fiery, fun-loving, and generous, an Aries loves to stand out from the crowd and command attention wherever they go. With this in mind, an Aries needs a statement present in keeping with their bold personality. Gifts they can wear, such as scarves, hats or bags which are bright and eye-catching are sure to satisfy the Aries’ lust for luxury.

Taurus (20th April – 20th May)

Grounded, intelligent yet stubborn, a Taurus enjoys their own time and views their home as their sanctuary. As a naturally houseproud sign, the Taurus would appreciate anything which fits well in their homes, such as personalised photos hung up as part of a gallery wall, alongside art prints.

Gemini (21st May – 20th June)

Geminis are outgoing and intelligent and are frequently described as the most versatile and adaptable of the zodiac. The Gemini loves to learn new things, so what better gift than a recipe book, where they can spend countless hours trying new dishes out. As Geminis love being the host, a recipe book is perfect for all the dinner parties they tend to host.

Cancer (21st June – 22nd July)

Sentimental and loyal, nothing makes a Cancer happier than being surrounded by their closest friends and family. Nothing would make an emotional Cancer happier than a present which is personalised for them. A personalised mug with photos from a happy time with family, or even a photo canvas to hang up in their homes.

Leo (23rd July – 22nd August)

A Leo loves opulence, in fact the bigger the better for the extroverted and loyal Leo. Attracted to bold patterns and statement pieces, jewellery would make the perfect present for the Leo as they like to wear and show off their gifts.

Virgo (23rd August – 22nd September)

Virgos are known for being practical, sensible, and incredibly loyal. Although they can come across as tough, they have a kind centre and love quiet nights in with friends. Practical presents will be appreciated by Virgos, such as stationary and trendy backpacks.

Libra (23rd September – 22nd October)

Often described as the “social butterfly” of the zodiac, a Libra is often found wherever the party is. Extroverted and friendly, Libras are charming and love to host parties. Party equipment for the extroverted Libra would be appreciated, such as portable speakers or even a portable disco light, so they can take the party wherever they go.

Scorpio (23rd October – 21st November)

One of the more popular and social zodiac signs, a Scorpio enjoys being the centre of attention and thrive off keeping in touch with the latest trends. An exhibitionist in the best way, a Scorpio will love a hilarious pair of personalised pair of “in your face” socks and will happily show them off at any social event.

Sagittarius (22nd November – 21st December)

A Sagittarius is always seeking their next adventure. Lovers of nature and always on the lookout for a new place to travel to, the Sagittarius is one of the most active members of the zodiac.

A Sagittarius is less of a material person and would prefer an experience over a gift. Vouchers for an experience day, such as tickets to a botanical garden, would go down a treat for the adventurous and curious Sagittarius. 

Capricorn (22nd December – 19th January)

Hard-working and focused, Capricorns are self-confessed workaholics who can appreciate the finer things in life. As Capricorns are normally extremely busy and are usually found working extra time, a luxe gift with a focus on wellbeing would be the perfect theme for a gift. An indulgent scented candle and a bath bomb to help them relax would be greatly appreciated.

Aquarius (20th January – 18th February)

Creative and kind, the Aquarius enjoys a calm environment where they can catch up with their closest friends. As they are eccentric and have their own style, buying for an Aquarius can be difficult, however gifts which involve creativity and customising are right up their street. Mindful adult colouring books and crafting kits will see an Aquarius optimising their creativity.

Pisces (19th February – 20th March)

A Pisces is known for their grace and emotional intelligence. Sensitive souls, Pisces thrive when spending time with their loved ones. The Pisces will cherish gifts which remind them of good times, whether that’s a personalised photo cushion or a key ring with their family’s photos.
