Zodiac Signs and Presents

Winter holidays are nearly upon us, and a lot of those holidays include giving presents. If have someone who’s hard to shop for, here’s a handy list of presents for each sign and house. 

*Note: To get them the ideal gift, combine more than one placement into a gift*

Use their…

Sun sign/house to find a gift that will make them feel happy. 

Mars sign/house to find a gift that will excite them.

Venus sign/house to find a gift they will appreciate.

Moon sign/house to find a gift they will remember. 


Aries/1st House is going to like gifts that EXCITE their sense of ADVENTURE. Some ideas include:

Fast-paced video games

Hiking/sporting equipment, more specifically solo sports equipment like good running shoes or a punching bag. 

Weapons, pocket knives and hatchets especially since they can be used while camping.

Tickets to a sporting event (some concerts like heavy metal function similarly)

Board games or other competitive toys. 

…But whatever you give them, make sure it’s something THEY want. An Aries will not use or appreciate anything they haven’t already decided they like. 


Taurus/2nd House is going to like gifts that PLEASE their SENSES.  Some ideas include:

Stones/jewelry

Posters/wall art  

High-quality sweets, bought or home made.

Crafting materials such as legos or a hot glue gun.

A musical instrument  

Scented items like candles or cologne

… But whatever you give them, make sure it reflects how much you think they’re worth. It doesn’t have to be expensive, but nothing will upset a Taurus like a cheap gift. 


Gemini/3rd House is going to like gifts that help them EXPLORE their CURIOSITY.  Some ideas include:

Books

Music (CD’s, gift cards)

Tickets to a social event

Heart felt notes (words mean a lot to them)

Car related items 

A bike/skateboard 

… But whatever you give them, make sure it has more than one use or focus, or even take your present budget and split it to get them more than one thing. While Gemini appreciates quality gifts, they enjoy having things to jump between (such as a series of books or a present with a heartfelt note attached). 


Cancer/4th House is going to like gifts that REMIND them of GOOD TIMES.  Some ideas include:

Anything that brings up a memory for them

A camera or scrapbook

Home decorations (scented candles and photos especially)

Dolls and stuff animals, particularly cute ones that can be used decoratively. 

Cook ware

Something you make for them

… But whatever you give them, make sure the word “sweet” applies. Cancer cares MUCH more about the thought behind a gift than the gift itself. 

Leo/5th House is going to like gifts that SHOW OFF their STYLE.  Some ideas include:

Movies/movie tickets

A video camera and/or microphone. 

Graphic t-shirts or other outfits that show their interests/style. 

Hair care products or makeup, particularly in fun styles and colors. 

Sunglasses 

…But whatever you give them, make sure it makes them feel special. Never give Leo the same gift as somebody else. 


Virgo/6th House is going to like gifts that are PRACTICAL and WELL MADE.  Some ideas include:

A really nice version of something they have a not so nice version of (get them a nicer mop if they have a not so nice one). 

Tools to help them organize and clean their space such as a craft box or good duster. 

High quality, skilled-artisan artwork that they can appreciate the detail in.

Grooming supplies like strong hair gel or makeup that are inexpensive and work well. 

Comfortable but professional clothes.  

… But whatever you get them, make sure it is a good one. Get Virgo something they can reasonably use, nothing unreasonably expensive but nothing too cheap it’s not worth having. Think of the gift as a thank you for everything they probably do for you and make sure it reflects how much you think that’s worth. 


Libra/7th House is going to like gifts that are BEAUTIFUL and FAIR.  Some ideas include:

Grooming supplies like hair products or makeup, but only the high quality stuff. 

Dressy clothes, especially shoes. 

Fair trade and other locally sourced products. 

Tickets to something they can dress up at. 

Wall art and other beautiful decorations. Frames are a great choice. 

… But whatever you get them, make sure it’s exactly what they’d want or be prepared to return it. Don’t get Libra something unless they’ve expressly said they like that kind or variety. 


Scorpio/8th House is going to like gifts that are both SECRET and OCCULT.  Some ideas include:

A tarot card deck

Essential Oils

Crafts made of bones such as a skull lamp. 

Something they’re not supposed/allowed to have.

A dressy black outfit. 

A mask or other costume

… But whatever you get them, make sure it’s something they’ve either been told they can’t have or shouldn’t have because it’ll make someone uncomfortable. Scorpio loves the idea of keeping a gift a secret just between you and them or having something that makes other people a little scared. 


Sagittarius/9th House is going to like gifts that are ADVENTUROUS and NEW.  Some ideas include:

A surprise, particularly if it’s something they don’t think is possible or real. 

Tickets or a gift certificate to an event or restaurant from another culture. 

Amusement park tickets

A gag gift or inside joke

Silly toys that they can do tricks with/on such as a unicycle or balls for juggling. 

… But whatever it is, make sure it’s something they’ll either say “wow!” or “haha!” to. Sagittarius doesn’t care much for material items, they’re more about experiences. 

Capricorn/10th House is going to like gifts that help them ACHIEVE their AMBITIONS. Some ideas include:

A tool to help them do what they’ve gotten good at even better. 

A “trophy” commemorating an achievement they didn’t receive an award for, but should have. 

Toys that take a lot of practice to get good at or use. Make sure it’s something that with practice they can become better at than their peers. 

An investment in their future, whether it be classes for a skill they’d like to acquire or savings bond. 

… But whatever it is, make sure you make them they feel like they’ve earned it. To Capricorn, a gift is an extension of your respect for them. 


Aquarius/11th House is going to like gifts that are QUIRKY and NEW. Some ideas include:

New technology, particularly electronics

Electronic versions of things they already have

Unusual machines to help them do one very specific job, such as specialized dog poop scooper or bread machine. 

Indulging in them something you see as useless that they’re really into.

A device/information to help them solve a problem they have. 

… But whatever it is, make sure it’s not something they’re expecting. Ideally, help Aquarius solve a problem they didn’t even know they had. 


Pisces/12th House is going to like gifts that are UNEXPECTED and UNUSUAL. Some ideas include:

Things they like to eat when relaxing

Pop culture fiction media like books, posters, music, and movies. Or, if they already have a collection of media, a good media player like good headphones, a meditation blindfold, speakers, or a high definition screen are also very appreciated. 

Items for self discovery such as spiritual readings or self-help books. 

Tea and incense 

Art of just about any kind and supplies for them to make art. 

… But whatever it is, make sure it’s something that helps them feel calm. Pisces likes to space out, and gifts that help them do that are their favorite. 


Hopefully this list helps you come up with something special for your gift recipient! Have a good Solstice season, everyone ^_^
