Buying the right gift can be very hard especially if you don’t know someone well enough. Worse still when you present your gift and eager unwrapping is met with a look of disdain once they finally get to see the contents. Fret no more! I hope this guide is comprehensive enough to assist you in making the best Christmas gift purchases to light up the faces of your near and dear ones!
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
What do you get fiery and energetic Aries? To help them let off some steam a gym membership would be perfect. You will most certainly never go wrong with a gift which engages them in high energy activity. Aries tend to be indulgent and won’t say no to anything that spells luxury like the most expensive bottle of champagne, chocolate or sparkly jewellery. Having said that, they can have their feet planted firmly on the ground and a gift which brings them back to a happy place in their past would definitely win their hearts over hands down like a picture collage of childhood memories.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
The industrious Taurus would most definitely enjoy a day out at the spa for some luxurious pampering. Also appealing to their decadent side a treat at the latest Michelin starred restaurant would sit perfectly well. You will be surprised to know that at times practical Taurus do have a romantic side as well. Pleasing them with a thoughtful gift or something handmade by yours truly will be a winner for tugging at their heartstrings.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
The ever so talkative Gemini would be squealing with delight if gifted with a communicative device like the latest mobile phone or tablet. Keeping in line with their social nature and their love for entertaining something like a set of quirky cocktail glasses will go down well. To stimulate their witty and intellectual side a gift of a book or even a kindle would be apt. And if you are feeling really generous a travel related gift would definitely top their list of gifts to receive.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
It’s going to be a real test when it comes to getting something for sentimental Cancer. They seek out the thought behind the gift and appreciate an element of surprise. You will definitely score points for getting a gift which makes them see how much you really understand them in and out. Didn’t i tell you it was a real test? To appeal to the sensitive side the advice is to start taking notes during your conversations as early as possible to get that perfect gift.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
The choices are endless when it comes to impressing the oh so vain Leo. Anything that makes them feel and look good will score brownie points for example a rejuvenating facial, a makeover session complete with a photo shoot or even a sexy piece of lingerie to make them feel extra special. Leo definitely know how to appreciate the finer things in life so a nice piece of bling will make them go over the moon. If budget is a constraint then fret not, bringing them to a music festival or concert will do just as well.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
What can you get the perfectionist Virgo? For a start think practical. Things that they can use on a daily basis not something that will sit and look pretty with no function whatsoever. Something along the lines of cookware, a tablet or even a laptop! The healthy Virgo might also appreciate an organic hamper of goodies. Or anything like bath gels, body lotions or hand creams which are au natural . A theme that spells no chemicals will probably bring a gleam to their face.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Libra have an eye for everything that is beautiful. A lovely bunch of flowers with a restaurant meal that serves aesthetically pleasing food in beautiful surroundings will top the bill. Anything that can make them look and feel beautiful – a lovely dress or a pampering session. If you aren’t too sure about their taste then vouchers to their favourite store would be the next best thing! Think pretty and you won’t go wrong. They would also appreciate tickets to a concert of a musical talent they admire. Make sure it’s a pair though as they dislike going on their own.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Whatever you get a Scorpio has to appeal to their mysterious and obscure side. Also bear in mind the colours should be dull as possible. A box set or a book with a thriller or mystery theme would be apt. Scorpios do like to keep a nice external appearance so a voucher to their favourite beauty parlour would be just as thrilling for them to receive.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Sagittarius has a robust appetite for adventure and travel. Getting them a travel related gift like a book or something from an exotic part of the world would certainly grab their attention. If you have the cash to splurge then by all means a trip to somewhere exotic will have them over the moon. This pet-loving zodiac will appreciate anything with an animal theme. So a quirky scarf with a feline print or a dog themed key chain would be just the thing right up their alley.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Capricorns aren’t as complicated as you think. They are quite easy to work out. Getting something that assists their work-oriented attitude will definitely be a plus. Something that makes them look ‘professional’ like a leather case for their tablet or a shiny pen to sign those important documents. They do enjoy the occasional indulgence but rarely treat themselves as they are so hard at work most of the time. So something luxurious like a cashmere cardigan or anything in silk will delight them. Throw in a monogram as well if you can. They love anything personalised!
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Quirky and witty Aquarius are not for expensive presents. They look for presents that have been well thought through. Something that someone has gone through effort for or made with their very own hands will fill an Aquarian with love. They treasure long lasting memories than an experience that will be over in a jiffy. So think of something that they can keep and treasure forever and your gift this Christmas to them will be a sure winner. Think along the lines of a photo montage enclosed in a handmade frame as an example. Oh yes did i mention they love surprises too!
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Pisces loves anything that allows them to escape. Think sentimental and romantic when selecting your gift for this zodiac. The regular flowers and jewellery won’t go wrong. But if you want to think a little out the box then get them something that can melt their hearts like a quilted blanket of memories or a thoughtfully selected charmed bracelet. Being music lovers – tickets to see their favourite artiste would be just as perfect. And being creatures of the water, anything to do with relaxing in the bath like scented salts and candles would just as easily excite them.
