One of the hardest things to do for a friend, family member, colleague, or their kids is to find gifts to buy them for the holidays (and that can also be the case for their birthday).
However, with the holidays here and so many people doing their last-minute shopping, deciding what gifts to buy for others can be difficult. And you know that giving someone a gift card you know well is not overly appropriate. That is why it would help you to know what holiday gifts you should get others based on their zodiac sign.
Aries – Sports Equipment Or Bright Clothing
If you are looking to buy a holiday gift for an Aries close to you, you will know they are passionate and energetic. What you can get for them is something that will keep them active, such as sporting equipment.
If they don’t have a pair of dumbbells, for example, then you can get them that. Or, you can get them sportswear. However, not all who have the sign are into sports and may like bright items, so that bright-colored clothing may be an idea.
Taurus – Anything Luxurious Or Anything Gourmet Food-Related
If a Taurus in your life loves fancy items, then there is a reason for that because that is the sign that appreciates luxury, given that Venus, the ruler of love and money, rules the sign of Taurus.
Therefore, you will want to get them anything luxurious such as a pair of shoes (you will have to ask them their size), a luxury bag, or some clothing. Taureans are also highly sensual, so they will also go for gourmet food and snacks. There are many gourmet food baskets consisting of chocolates, cheeses, and other delicious foods they would appreciate.
Gemini – Video Games Or Books
You may find that the Gemini in your life may struggle to make decisions and get bored quickly. There is a reason for that, as this is a versatile sign and can jump from one thing to another at the drop of a hat. Also, Gemini needs intellectual stimulation. Therefore, if you ask Gemini what they want for their holiday gift, they may tell you that they don’t know. Well, don’t worry.
You will understand their interests based on what they talk about often, and you can always surprise them with books on the topic (you can casually ask them beforehand if they have the book you want to get them without telling them why you are asking if you don’t want to get them the same one). Video games are another idea for Gemini, which keeps them stimulated.
Cancer – A Decorative Item For Their Home
If you are looking to get a holiday gift for your Cancer friend, colleague, or family member, then you will want to get them a decorative item for their home. That is because Cancers take a lot of pride in their homes.
You can get them wall pieces, which include mirrors or pictures. You can get them small statues to place at the entrances of their rooms, such as the den, tchotchkes, or anything else they may need for their home that will brighten it up. They’ll appreciate it.
Leo – Fancy Clothing And Accessories
The Leo in your life loves to show off, which is why the gift you want to get them will give them that opportunity. That is why you want to get them fancy clothing and accessories. That could mean get them a new snazzy purse, or scarf, or jewelry.
Leo is not known to be the one that loves luxury in the same way that Taurus does, but they do love it because it helps them show off. You can also get them some novelty items too if they can show off with them, such as unusual bumper stickers for their cars.
Virgo – Kitchenware
The Virgo in your life loves to spend a lot of time in their kitchen. They take pride in their dishes because they make them both delicious and healthy. They will appreciate any type of kitchenware as a gift.
You can get them new pots, pans, porcelain dinnerware, or stoneware. You can get them a new set of plates and utensils or some new knife sets. The Virgo in your life could need plenty of items that are relevant to the kitchen. And even small appliances they would appreciate too.
Libra – Fashionable Clothing
If you have a Libra in your life and you are trying to decide what to get them as a gift since they struggle with decisiveness as it is, then you can get them anything that is fashionable. Libra loves clothing, and like Leo, they want to flaunt what they wear.
However, the reasons are different. Leo wants to show off, whereas the Libra is into fashion and wants to enjoy wearing whatever clothing is trendy for themselves. It makes them feel good. Therefore, any clothing in fashion is what Libra would appreciate, even if they don’t tell you.
Scorpio – Surprise Them With Anything
You know that any Scorpio in your life will not elaborate on what they want as a holiday gift. They like to stay mysterious and have you guessing. Therefore, you can use your imagination as far as what to get the Scorpio because they want you to surprise them. You can use your intuition and tap into what the Scorpio can use.
Surprise them with a new dish set if they could use extra kitchenware. If you sense they need new hair accessories, then surprise them with that. You can also get them a novelty gift, which they will appreciate. Either way, surprise them.
Sagittarius – Anything Travel-Related
Any Sagittarius in your life, as you know, loves to travel, so it is not hard to know what to get them as a holiday gift. So naturally, you will want to get them anything that is travel-related. You can always get them new luggage or carry-on bags because luggage does wear down. You can also get them travel books.
You can also think about travel accessories such as mugs. The one thing about Sagittarius is that they will not be picky about what you get them because they appreciate you thinking of them even if you get them something they don’t need.
Capricorn – Anything They Can Use Regularly
If you want a gift for a Capricorn in your life, you want to ensure you get something they can use daily instead of a one-time thing. Capricorns are very practical, and they are also goal-oriented. You can get them anything they would extensively use, such as a briefcase or kitchenware.
Don’t get them anything decorative because they have no use for that. If you also plan on getting them a 2023 date planner, ask them first if they “by chance” have it, as you don’t want to get them something they already have.
Aquarius – A Memorable Gift
You know that Aquarians are unique and love not to go with the norm. Yes, they are into technology, but getting them a gadget may not be the best thing to do because there is a good chance that they already have one since Aquarians are known to grab a new device first when it comes out despite the cost.
Therefore, get them a memorable gift instead, such as a box of chocolates with a beautiful container or a picture frame that they can use to put a picture of something that means something to them into it. Unusual tchotchkes would work too.
Pisces – Anything Hand-Made
Those who have Pisces as one of the big three (sun, moon, or rising sign) are known to be exceptionally sentimental and dreamy. That is why they would love a hand-made gift, and even if you are not the crafty type, you can buy crafts, as most sellers on Etsy sell hand-crafted items.
You can also get them plushies, as that would make them happy. You are never too old to have a love for stuffed animals, especially Pisces, which has a child-like trait in them anyway. Hand-made plushies would make excellent gifts.
The best thing you can do before getting anyone a gift for the holidays is to ask those who you want to buy what they want. If some of them tell you this list does not apply to them, but for many others, it is because many people have yet to learn what they truly want to get as a holiday gift. It would be tempting to get them a gift card, and that is an appropriate gift for an acquaintance but not for someone who is close to you. Good luck with your gift-shopping experience.
