Are you unsure of what that certain someone wants for the holidays? Are you stressed because you don’t have the time to be thoughtful about presents in the midst of exam chaos? Never fear, because, through the use of the Zodiac signs, it’s possible to narrow down what a person may crave from life. Not only that, but there are also reasonable gift ideas listed, which may be a little easier to acquire than, say, world peace. Hopefully, this helps you find something for that one person who is impossible to shop for.

The element of the sign (Air, Water, Earth, or Fire) will also be indicated by the symbol next to the name of the sign:
(F) Fire (A) Air (E) Earth (W) Water

(F) Aries (March 22-April 19) – These people crave constant action, movement, and love to be busy; comic books, games, or anything related to their hobbies will excite Aries, as they have a constant need to be involved in something that interests them. If you have no idea what their interests are, just go for something that would entertain a child. They are essentially the same thing.

(E) Taurus (April 20- May 20) – Taurus need plenty of food and sleep; They might want plants to fill their house with, their favorite snacks, stuffed animals, or workout clothes. These are all useful things that bring internal pleasure. Look for items that they would point out to you themselves, but wouldn’t spend their own money on. You will find a plethora of these items, as Taurus are financially intelligent and will avoid buying many things that they want, but do not need.

(A) Gemini (May 21- June 20) – Geminis embrace new experiences and people; They would appreciate posters, new technology and gadgets, fidget toys, and art projects. Geminis look for something that will stimulate their mind, introduce them to something new, or entertain their imagination. They love when people listen to them, and will inevitably mention their interests over and over again. All you have to do is pay attention.

(W) Cancer (June 21-July 22) – These beings constantly seek comfort, and someone to share it with; In addition to some good company, Cancers might like fuzzy socks, a karaoke machine, a recliner, or a nice blanket. Search for a present that will not change up their routine. They should be able to easily implement your gift into their most comfortable state of being. Don’t gift them an outfit that it is the opposite of their style because you think they don’t take enough risks.

(F) Leo (July 23-August 22) – Stereotypically, Leos love attention from others. In the spirit of attention, they appreciate accessories like scarves, jewelry, sunglasses, and beauty tools or makeup. They are always looking for new ways to express themselves and to be noticed. Most Leos love trendy clothes and beauty looks. Similarly to Geminis, Leos will not be afraid to tell you exactly what they want as a present, but you may have to ask them directly.

(E) Virgo (August 23-Sept 22) – Virgos are on constantly searching for an opportunity to prove their smarts or correct someone. They love intellectual gifts such as yarn for knitting, books, a calendar with cute pictures, or vitamins. These are also all very useful items, Virgos let nothing go to waste. These people know exactly how hard you thought about their gift, so don’t worry about them liking it, just find something that comes from the heart and they will be thankful. If they tell you that they don’t want a gift, don’t believe them. It is a test.

(A) Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22) – Libras crave nothing more than peace, happiness, and a way to find balance within their life. They love to spend time with family and friends, and small pet, drinks, concert tickets, and fancy clothes could all make great gifts. Libras love high energy social situations, exploration, and abstract ideas such as love, freedom, and their own aesthetic. Either gift them an unforgettable experience or something that will continue to bring them happiness for a long time.

(W) Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 22) – They feel a need to be in control. In terms of gifts, Scorpios are easily impressed by poetry, funny or cute accessories, dark makeup, incense, or a holiday fling. They like to feel special but they don’t want you to one-up them in terms of gift-giving. Think very personal but don’t go too crazy with it, because Scorpios will let you know exactly what they think of your present.

(F) Sagittarius (Nov 23-Dec 22) – Sagittariuses are all about traveling, exploring, and being independent. Maps, plane tickets, and mementos from special places like seashells or postcards are all great ideas. They are so kind and will genuinely thank you for whatever you get them. You’ll be able to tell when a Sagittarius really loves their gift, and there’s no better feeling than when they sincerely appreciate you.

(E) Capricorn (Dec 23-Jan 22) – Stability in life is the most important thing to Capricorns. They want useful gifts such as cash, new shoes, music, pretty photography, or a nice planner. Similar to Taurus, they are financially intelligent and will appreciate anything sensible that they can use and enjoy for a while. Though typically very realistic, they likely have a strong aesthetic or style that can help you find the perfect gift. They will also give you a straight answer if you simply ask them what they want.

(A) Aquarius (Jan 23-Feb 22) – Aquarius wish for open-mindedness from others and acceptance of all people. They love journals, room decorations, one-of-a-kind objects, and deep conversations. Aquariuses are extremely creative and unique, making them some the hardest people to shop for. It is important to remember that as long as you find something meaningful to your relationship with them, they will not care what it is. Just make sure they know that you thought of them.

(W) Pisces (Feb 23-March 21) – They are passionate about all forms of love. What they really want for the holidays is to pass finals, but will appreciate anything handmade, photos of memories, pretty objects, crystals, or other spiritual things. They will attach emotion and meaning to almost everything that they have or are given. This means, while shopping for Pisces, it is important to keep your relationship in mind. Look back at all of your inside jokes, similarities, and differences to search for something that they will understand immediately. This could be a pair of shoes that they never shut up about, or it could be a scrapbook about your friendship. No matter your budget, if your gift is truly special, Pisces will treasure it forever. Don’t let them tell you what to buy them, either. It should be your own idea, as it will be so much more meaningful to them.

About the Writer
CJ Groom, Reporter
When I took Journalism 1 last year, I fell in love with the idea of taking pictures, writing, and being part of an amazing group of people. Outside of being a student, I work at Amy's Ice Creams, I obsess over cop shows, and I spend an unhealthy amount of time talking to my two dogs and my lizard. I have always loved reading, but find English as a school subject to be impossibly subjective and personal, so I figured Journalism is kind of like a more mathematical writing. I have a mentionable phobia of frogs, I am adopted, and I know more about ice cream than I ever wanted to.
