Libra Tips: Libra is ruled by the sign Venus, which is the planet of beauty and art. Libra's typically have a great eye for beautiful objects, fashion, art, and home decor. Pay attention to what your Libra's fashion tastes and home decor for ideas of what to get them. Libra also enjoys peace and harmony, so a relaxing vacation spent at the beach, in nature, or at a spa is sure to delight.
Libra Gift List: Libra Chardonnay (well balanced like them), a gourmet food basket that is elegantly packaged, a pair of two beautiful items for the home, such as candles, picture frames, or vases, a beautiful coffee table book about a subject that they are interested in, a piece of artwork or sculpture, tickets to the theater or a concert, a weekend getaway to a winery or serene beach, a pair of beautiful earrings, flowers, an elegant night out for dinner at their favorite restaurant, a massage gift certificate, anything that pampers them and is beautiful to the eye.
Scorpio Tips: A good rule of thumb when purchasing items for a Scorpio is to focus on the areas of their lives that they are most passionate about and items that fit with the objects that they already own. One Scorpio I know strongly believes that it is better to buy one expensive item, such as a knife, that you will have forever, versus several cheap knives that will only last a couple years. Think lasting quality and modern elegance. As a general rule, you can usually never go wrong with the timeless colors such as black. Avoid bright colors.
Scorpio Gift List: Scorpio Pinot Noir (intriguing like a Scorpio), a dark chocolate dessert, take them out for oysters, lingerie, one quality item that is expensive and timeless such as a knife, leather chair, or purse, an item from their favorite clothing or furniture designer, one small antique item that relates to a subject that intrigues them - such as a snuff box from the Orient or a perfume bottle from France, a sleek pair of sunglasses, anything involving a mystery, tarot cards, an intriguing and beautiful black book, tickets to thrill experience, such as a haunted hay ride or scary thriller movie.
Sagittarius Tips: Sagittarius is a fun loving sign with a jubilant personality. When you shop for your Sagittarius feel free to add in some humor and get creative. Sagittarius is always up for a new adventure both physically and mentally, so a last minute getaway to a new destination or items related to their favorite physical activity could be a great idea. Additionally, Sagittarius is the sign of higher knowledge, foreign languages, religion, and philosophy. Gifts surrounding this subjects may be enjoyed depending on their interests.
Sagittarius Gift List: Sagittarius Old Vine Zinfandel (spicy like them), a basket of unique foods from around the world, positive thinking or philosophical books, gag gifts, rent an RV and go on a road-trip, items that relate to their favorite sport such as surfing, running or golfing, tickets to a lecture that interests them, an outdoor excursion, a clever letter or note, a mix tape with songs that remind you of them, a guitar or musical instrument, a fun pair of socks, a kayak or canoe, anything that matches one of their quirks.
Capricorn Tips: Capricorn appreciates anything practical and high quality. These signs tend to be more conservative in appearance and like to dress the part of whatever industry interests them. For example, one Capricorn I know who is a lawyer dresses very elegant and sophisticated, like Princess Kate. While another Capricorn I know that loves skateboarding, always has on the latest action sports brands with a pair of clean, crisp shoes. Both of them look always look put together and stylish, even though their styles are completely different.
Capricorn Gift List: Capricorn Cabernet Sauvignon (rich like them), gourmet desserts and food items, expensive champagne or scotch, a nice watch, clothing accessories that fit with their style, a wool sweater, home decor in natural elements such as wood or coral, jewelry or a clutch in their favorite color, the latest tech gadgets that are stylish and cool - think Apple, a leather portfolio for work, a nice ballpoint pen with their name engraved on it, a business card holder, a weekend getaway to a place where there is a lot to do and see (Capricorn is a great planner), an expensive lobster and steak dinner at the nicest restaurant in town, money or gift certificates (they know what they want and won't be offended).
Aquarius Tips: Aquarius is nonconformist by nature, so you really must take into consideration your particular Aquarius loved one and think about what makes them unique. Do they love a certain type of animal? subject matter? destination? hobby? How do they spend their spare time and what do they talk about the most? Aquarius is said to be a revolutionary and is many times associated with technology, which is funny because some of the Aquarians that I know still have a razor phone from the dark age....like I said, nonconformist.
Aquarius Gift List: Aquarius Chardonnay (unique like them), unusual and outlandish items, a vintage purse or set of unique drinking glasses, update them to the 21st century with some cool electronics, a surprise party with their friends (Aquarius is the sign of friendship), a book about a topic that they love such as space or art, something antique and quirky, a piece from the latest fashion, artwork, audio books or a documentary, a trip to somewhere different, tickets to their favorite band, a day trip to the museum or planetarium, aromatherapy candles or essential oils, a crystal or deck of tarot cards if they are into new age items.
Pisces Tips: Pisces are daydreams who love beauty and delicious treats. They will appreciate anything thoughtful that shows that you paid attention to what they care about and shows that you love them. Pisces enjoy a wide variety of items - whether it is from nature or their favorite store. They are creative by nature so a gift such as a woodworking kit, loom, or a set of oil paints might really inspire them to make something beautiful. As long as the gift shows you care, you win.
Pisces Gift List: Pisces Pinot Noir (romantic like them), a homemade gourmet dinner with flowers, wine and a handmade dessert, a journal, a dream book, something beautiful from their favorite store such as a cozy blanket, silky nightgown or soft mittens, a romantic night out dancing, a love letter or poem, tickets to a concert, play or symphony, a weekend trip to a little town nearby that has a great spa or antique store, anything ocean related (they are water signs), a beautifully framed photograph, a camera (Pisces is associated with film), perfume, a puppy, a gift that brings out their creative side.
