As Christmas creeps closer each week, buying your loved one’s gift is becoming harder and harder. They won’t exactly tell you what they want, and every time you ask you’re met with the standard “I don’t know” or “surprise me, I’m sure I’ll love whatever you get me”. While you might not know what they want or have any idea on where to start, you definitely know their star sign or who they are in astrology – take a look at what your partner wants this Christmas without ruining the surprise! Take advantage of present and gift sales this Black Friday, get those gifts early, but know exactly what to get your loved one. It’s difficult to gauge what they want, so take our advice. You might be able to know through astrology. Check out Dr. Lurve’s incredible gift guide below!
The Best Present For Your Love, According To Their Star Sign
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
The best at accepting any gift, an Aries will love anything that’s new and on-trend – think the latest gadgets, clothing trends or voucher to a new restaurant they’ve been dying to try. They’re always down for an adventure so why not buy them an experience rather than a present itself?
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Ruled by Venus, your Taurus is a sign that speaks to possessions, objects and money. Their taste is second to none and that means high maintenance – try a present that screams opulence and personality. You could get some timeless jewellery, a fresh fragrance or reach to their senses with a vinyl album or new wallet.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
This one is tough as Gemini’s are known for having interests left, right and centre – they’re one of the hardest signs to buy for because they can’t even decide what they want! Always willing to learn new things, a Gemini appreciates being organised with a personalised journal or being surprised with a subscription to their favourite magazine.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
One of the most sentimental signs, a Cancer is more of an “it’s the thought that counts” person. Think about a fond memory you share with them such as a dinner date or significant experience. Giving them something customised and from the heart is the way to go, try making a cactus plant or buy ingredients and tools for a recipe they’ve been dying to make.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Anything to make them look and feel good. A Leo appreciates all things beauty, art, fashion and creativity – aim to look for the latest fashion trends and skincare for your Leo lover. They’ll love that you want them to feel great in their skin! If that doesn’t work, try giving them a creative outlet like an art class pass or polaroid camera.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
They want to be practical and productive, so gift-giving is quite a Virgo’s cup of tea. If you’re aiming to buy them something nice, make sure they can use it every day. Try looking for a new bag for work, a lush set of headphones or a voucher for new runners; they’ll love the functionality of their gift as much as the gift itself!
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
These are the trendsetters, not the followers, so Libra’s probably have everything new – that’s why they’re hard to buy for! Giving them something fun or cheeky is a great way to go as they appreciate the novelty. Try giving them an adult card party game, a fresh pair of the latest casual sneakers or take them shopping for new specs.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio’s are all about genuine and sentimental gifts, rather than fluffy nonsense things they will throw away. They appreciate presents that are other-worldly. Try looking into areas of fortune-telling and astrology and get them a tarot reading. Alternatively, find a significant place and go there for a night out and give them a hand-written love letter to read after dessert.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
They have the travel bug even when they just get back from holiday, so you know anything toward their next trip will be appreciated by your Sagittarius! For lush gifts try a new passport holder or travel wallet, or if you want to give a low-key present try a travel guide, an English to *insert language* dictionary, or map for where they’ve travelled so far!
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
All about meaning and purpose, your present to the Capricorn in your life must have a function! They love luxury and all things opulent too, so your dollar value might need to be higher than others – look for personalisation gifts such as wallets, watch bands, or other jewellery. Anything practical and expensive they can use often is the way to go.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
These are the tech giants! Your Aquarius loves all things new technology and gadgets, so something new and fresh off the market is best. They love a bit of pop culture, so why not incorporate both? Try a funky meme-inspired phone case, a home speaker (Google Home or Amazon’s Alexa), or go for a smartwatch with their favourite colour band.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Material items don’t mean much to a Pisces, they want to see the soul and sentiment in the gift. Something they can express their creativity with is a great place to start and something to do with comfort as a second plan. Try new artbooks or update their brushes, a fresh indoor plant for them to look after or try splurging with fancy ugg boots or pyjamas!
