What happens when someone hands a gym membership to a couch potato or costume jewelry to a woman with expensive tastes? Whether or not the recipient believes in astrology, the importance of giving a compatible birthday gift cannot be overstressed. The following examples demonstrate ideal presents for people born under all zodiac signs.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): Capricorns are typically goal-oriented, so providing a gift that helps them achieve their dreams is appreciated. Parties should be shared with family and friends.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Aquarians like to be unique. One-of-a-kind art, hand-sewn clothing, and homemade jewelry are welcome presents. The humanitarian side of people born under this sign may also appreciate a donation of time or money to their favorite charity.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Pisces appreciate meaningful, personalized gifts. A Pisces’ parents and significant other should never forget the occasion. Pisces need time to detox from the world, so vacations, spa days, golf packages, and entertainment items are good gift options.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Aries love the thrill of adventure and are often involved in several activities. Gift ideas include sporting equipment, extreme sports adventures (bungee jumping, skydiving, etc.), safaris, and parties with exotic foods.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Most people under the Taurus sign hate change, so surprise parties are out of the question. Gift cards to a favorite restaurant, a get-together with close friends, a camping or hiking trip, candles, fragrances, and comfy clothing are all welcome gifts.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Geminis love any presents that satisfy their curiosity or open up a new avenue of exploration. The most suitable gifts include a large party at a new restaurant, a book or DVD on several little-known topics, or the purchase of classes or memberships.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Cancers typically want to feel secure and loved. They are more likely to enjoy heartfelt gifts than commercial standards, but cash and gift cards are also well received.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): Flatter a Leo and watch his/her eyes light up. The best gifts are those that celebrate the Leo’s accomplishments, sense of style, beauty, humor, and athletic prowess.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Virgos tend to be shy and want the attention to be focused anywhere but on them. Gifts should help Virgos fulfill their duty to others, such as school supplies for a teacher’s classroom, books on alternative medicine for a doctor, or toys for a social worker.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): Most Libras want to lead a fairytale life, so a birthday is the ideal occasion to make that wish come true. Pampering, luxury brands, beach vacations, and even a relaxing night out are excellent presents for people guided by this astrological sign.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): People under the Scorpio sign of the zodiac appreciate any gift that helps them get ahead in the world. From red ties and designer handbags to language lessons and mentoring, Scorpios want to receive presents that help them excel.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Sagittarians love exploring their newest interest. Gifts related to travel, spirituality, exotic cultures and places, education, and nature are likely to be a hit.
