What's your sign?
We’re only asking because we are getting into the best birthday gift ideas for each sign!
Everything is written in the stars, right? But, sometimes, it's a little harder to understand what is being said by the stars when it comes to gift-giving. So, when it comes to finding the perfect birthday gift, some zodiac signs are easier to shop for than others (yes, Scorpio, we're looking at you.)
This handy zodiac guide will help you with birthday gift ideas that each sign will actually use, rather than just something that has their zodiac sign on it or something simply astrology themed.
So, go ahead my friends and see all the birthday gift ideas for each sign and of course, feel free to give all the credit to the stars. 💫
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries loves to learn new things and stay active. So first, find out what has been intriguing them lately, and with some materials to start their latest project, get them a how-to book on the subject. Maybe they’ve taken an interest in a specific sports team that you can get the tickets for.
Our Aries friends love bling. So a perfect gift for an Aries would be jewelry. The more glamorous and flashy, the better for Aries. Try finding Aries a big gemstone piece rather than getting them something subtle. Whether they are earrings, necklaces, pendants, or bracelets, make sure they are a statement piece.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Whether you're searching for a birthday gift for a Taurus man or woman, a soft cashmere sweater or a pair of cozy slippers is always a good choice. Taurus love to feel pampered, and this will help them to pamper themselves. Think about a spa day at home for Taurus, or better yet, bring them to a spa. They'll love feeling pampered all day.
Taurus are known to love music, so any gift that revolves around music is a great option. Do they have an extensive record collection? Help Taurus expand their collection by getting them something they love. Whether they love classic rock, pop, or top 40, plus, you could always get them concert tickets to their favorite group.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
While most signs will not enjoy a surprise party, a Gemini certainly will. So you should feel quite confident giving your Gemini friend a surprise birthday party — they will relish in the delight of it. Geminis love to socialize and learn new things. So having a surprise party for your Gemini friends will fill their fix of being social and learning new things from everyone invited.
Unsurprisingly, Geminis need to stay mentally stimulated. This is why most Geminis love video games or computer games. Of course, you'll need to know them well enough to find out what kind of games they love to play and something they don't already have. But because Geminis enjoy staying mentally stimulated, most games will end up being a good birthday gift as long as it keeps their attention for a few minutes.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancers will appreciate any birthday gift, no matter how small, big, expensive, or cheap it is, as long as you give it with your heart. So if you want to get into Cancers’ good books, prepare a little something to say from the heart as you give them their gift. They'll appreciate your kind words and the thought behind your gift.
Giving a Cancer something that is heartfelt, like a VidDay video gift. You don't have to be the only one giving a Cancer heartfelt words. Gather together all of their friends, family, coworkers, even acquaintances. They'll love that everyone came together to give them such a sentimental gift that they'll cherish for years to come.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
The thing about Leo’s is that they’ll make you well aware of things they love and things they hate, which makes finding them the perfect birthday gift a little easier. So now you just need to know what will please Leo for their birthday.
Leos will love something personalized. They will love a coffee mug that has something that reminds them of themselves. A VidDay video gift would be ideal for them to know everyone is thinking about them. Or you can gather old photos you framed of you and that special birthday Leo, or anything else that you can personalize towards them. But whatever you do, do NOT forget their birthday!
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
If you weren’t already aware Virgo are a very organized and practical people. So for a birthday gift, you can get something that they already have but a little more fancy, like a notebook, agenda, or a calendar for the following calendar year. Getting them something that will help them plan or stay organized is always the best gift for a Virgo. Think monthly planner, bookends, or some kind of organizational system.
Virgos favor high-quality. So whether you’re getting them clothing or jewelry, be prepared to find something a little more upscale and something that is made to last, rather than something trendy. Since Virgos are an earth sign, they’ll love the feel of a warm fuzzy blanket that they can run their hands over or a pair of quality headphones to listen to their favorite music or podcast.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra's are a unique zodiac sign that need to be rewarded with an elegant birthday gift. So go out and find something truly one of a kind and something unique that no one else has. Libras will love that. What's also important is making sure that you wrap your gifts with care, as Libras will appreciate what's in there even more. For Libra, opening a gift is part of the appeal.
It's known that Libras love choosing their own gifts. They know what they are looking for and sometimes have trouble expressing that to others. It's not because Libras don't trust their friends. It's just that they want to please the people around them. So try giving them a gift card to their favorite shop or taking them to a store and letting them pick something out.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios have been known to be a little mysterious. Trying to pique Scorpio’s interest might be a little difficult, but searching for something that makes them a little curious will greatly appeal to them. Something like a murder mystery, detective stories, or sometimes games and puzzles will get Scorpio’s attention.
Scorpio is obsessed with looking perfect. However, they'll never show it or admit it. So, for a Scorpio's birthday gift, they will enjoy clothing. Scorpios love dressing up and expressing themselves through clothing. So, gift your Scorpio friend jewelry and other accessories to add to their collection that they already have.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius is very intelligent and concerned about the "big picture." Still, they also radiate positive energy, enthusiasm, and a thirst for adventure, which are only some of the reasons we love our Sagittarius friends. Sagittarius is optimistic, has a travel bug, and is interested in just about anything, and they have an incredibly open mind. Sagittarius might be one of the easiest signs to buy a birthday gift for!
Sagittarius being a fire sign, is wildly adventurous and always up for something fun! You can take them on a hike, plan a vacation with them, or even just a scratch-off map so they can remember all their adventures. Sagittarius is happiest when they're out in the great outdoors, so you can get a birthday gift that they'll enjoy while outside! Anything from a water bottle, hiking equipment, sunglasses, hats, and more!
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns love to mix things up every now and then. They get really bored when things are predictable. So, for their birthday gift, get Capricorn someone unexpected and amusing. Capricorns love it when they receive birthday gifts because they enjoy having physical proof of love. Capricorns also aren’t very picky, so there are many different gifts that you could get them that they’ll adore.
But what sort of things will a Capricorn really appreciate? They’ll love a good planner for one. Any kind of stationery item will go down well with our Capricorn friends because, as we know, they are the most workaholic sign. You can also give Capricorn a birthday gift to help them relax after a hard day of work, like skincare, pajamas, or a nice candle to relax with.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
For Aquarians, mental stimulation is one of the most important aspects of happiness. Aquarius can quickly feel extremely bored and uninterested if they don't have mental stimulation. But they also need their downtime to help them refuel. So Aquarius will appreciate your patience in finding a thoughtful birthday gift for Aquarius qualities that uniquely relate to them.
Technology is huge for Aquarians. Find a techy birthday gift that allows them to innovate or get ahead of the curve in any way, shape, or form. Aquarius are big-picture thinkers who care about communication on a broad level; they care about big-picture things. So if you're looking for something a little less price-heavy, check out some covers for the AirPod case or a new phone case. They'll love it just as much.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces is a very creative sign. So when looking for a birthday gift for your Pisces, find something that will go hand in hand with their creativity, whether it's paint and brushes, a camera for photography, or even a book for them to escape in. Pisces will appreciate any gift that allows them to be creative.
They are overthinkers and incredibly responsible, yet they tend to forget a lot of things. So getting a Pisces a planner may help, but you could also impress them by giving them a journal to get all of their thoughts down on paper. Pisces is a huge fan of nature and enjoys traveling around the globe. So any kind of birthday gift related to travel will be appreciated by Pisces. They appreciate traveling as much as they enjoy being in the company of close friends.
