Christmas time is here and you're not done shopping- but it's all fine, we've got your back. Gift giving is even harder this year as we avoid directly going to stores and are bombarded with online ads and endless options. Below you can find a curated gift guide based on horoscope, so you can skip all of the madness!
A Scorpio is a complex, emotional and deep person. With most things they accomplish they tend to be serious leaders with a strong intensity. Although they can be tough-minded, they are very committed friends/family!
A Capricorn is always on the go. Whether it’s meeting a deadline, creating new side projects for themselves, or just showing up in a lot of Big Ways for the people they care about...they’re not always the first to take care of themselves. Help them practice some self-care, or get them a clever gadget or tool that’s going to make their lives a little bit easier. Capricorns have a strong sense of duty, so taking time to really thank them and show appreciation can go a long way!

A really thoughtful, personal, hand-written card
A Gemini is a very playful and intellectual person, who can often be found balancing a variety of passions, careers, hobbies, and friend groups! They are also very open minded and will talk to you just about anything- nothing is off the table.
An Aquarius is usually a bit of a busy body - whether they’re tackling the Patriarchy or picking up a new skill or hobby, these warriors have stuff to DO and places to BE. Since they’re sometimes easily distracted by new ideas or shiny objects, staying focussed might be an issue. But, we know they need a lot of freedom to let their creative, kooky spirit fly free.
Eucalyptus for their shower - visit your local florist or plant shop
A book to get their wheels turning (shop at your local book shop!) - Try: Getting to Centre - Marlee Grace, The Infinite Game - Simon Sinek, Deviate - B. Lotto, Girl Decoded - Rana el Kaliouby
Virgos often pay attention to the smallest details and will know you on a deeper level than most. They are attentive and loving, and are often misunderstood as they do not express things in typical ways one would. Although they can be very blunt and up-front, this makes them real!
Sure, Taurus gets a bad rap for being stubborn, but have you ever been to a Tarurean’s house? It always feels so nice, with little hits of beauty everywhere. They like to feel serene, okay?! Whether it’s their great taste in house plants, or interesting eye for decor, Taureans know how to make a house feel like a home. And when they have a project in mind, they’re determined to see it through. We love that!
A Libra is passionate about creating a balanced life in all areas. They are not a fan of alone time and desire partnership in true friendship, and romantic relationships. Balance and symmetry is very important to them and are often found standing up for equality and injustices, although they dislike conflict and like to keep peace.
Donation to favourite charity
Oh, you know a Cancerian loves to curl up at home with a good book, or a new record, or some sort of other calming, homey thing. However, they’re not always ones to get out of their comfort zone and try new things, despite being quite creative and innovative in nature. They’re always pleased to have something thoughtful, soft, or a gentle encouragement to let their creativity flow!
A playlist of the all the songs that remind you of them
Something nice for their home - check out Rose City Goods
A good gift for a Leo will make them feel special...and not just regular special, but extra special. Showing that you notice things about them, or see something that you think will make them look and feel like a million bucks is sure to put a smile on their face. They also love a good laugh, so something that tickles their funny bone could be a gift they’ll cherish.
Funny books (check your local book shop) - try: Is This Something - Jerry Seinfeld, Wow No Thank You - Samatha Irby, The Office: The Untold Story of the Greatest Sitcom of the 2000s: An Oral History - Andy Greene, Shrill - Lindy West, I Want Be Where The Normal People Are - Rachel Bloom
Solid scents (They all smell great on any gender!)
A striking/unique/interesting vintage mirror - check your local vintage shops. This might be a labour of love to find, but oh-so-worth-it.
A Pisces is the most empathetic of all the zodiac signs. They are often giving of themselves to keep everyone around them happy, and perpetuate a vivid and creative imagination and have a strong appreciation for the arts.
Saggitarians can take up a lot of space - they are opinionated, bold, and unafraid to show off. But just because we can see them doesn’t mean that we know them. Show a Saggitarian in your life that you really get them by nurturing their natural creative side, introducing new ideas, and making them feel taken care of. They’re always buzzing around that sometimes they forget how to slow down!
A book by or about a notable badass (shop at your local book store!): Try: Untamed - Glennon Doyle, Recollections of My Nonexistence - Rebecca Solnit, Carry - Toni Jensen, We Have Always Been Here - Samra Habib
A personalized care package with all their fave things (use the 5 senses to help make a checklist!)
Aries are passionate, motivated, and confident people who build a life around them filled with a positive community, and determined friends. Although they are very direct, they often get frustrated by excessive details and small talk.
