With the holiday season upon us, the time for gift-giving is in full swing. If you’re confused about which gifts to get for all the different people in your life, try breaking them up by birthdays. Use this comprehensive list of gifts for all the zodiac signs in your life and to impress everyone at your "Secret Santa" and white elephant parties.  

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Capricorns are generally workaholics that need everything to be effortless for them and are very much practical-minded people. Your Capricorn loved ones need things to work, and they need them to work well with their lifestyles! A coffee machine would help the Capricorn in your life work longer hours, or you could try giving them an alarm clock as a practical and effortless gift.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Aquarians are the epitome of the "Y/N" stereotype and a little caught in their own head. Let’s be honest: The Aquarians in your life enjoy being alone and tuning the world out. Noise-canceling headphones would be the perfect gift for them to do what they enjoy — being alone! You could even give a Moleskine journal to let your Aquarius loved one keep up with their brooding persona and journal their thoughts out.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Those born in the Pisces season are emotional, sentimental and always in the mood for music. Pisces love making memories and being around their loved ones. So let them eat cake — or rather let them sing their hearts out by giving them a speaker. The Pisces in your life would also appreciate a keepsake of all the memories they make with you by capturing them through a disposable camera

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Aries is a sign that is fiery, on the go and a little bit of a hot mess that might be in need of some TLC. So, the Aries in your life will love presents that look out for their needs. A hot sauce set is perfect — and that's not up for debate. Or maybe try organizing their life and on-the-go personality with a travel mug.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Taureans are a little quiet and tense and tend to appreciate the finer things in life. The Taurus in your life requires some easing of their worries and an outlet to channel their inner connoisseur. A cookbook is perfect! Your Taurus friend is also desperately in need of some rest and relaxation, so getting them a massage gun would let them know you care.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

If they’re playful, intellectual and love color, then they're a Gemini. Geminis love the finer things in life and are always down to try new things. Gifts that reflect their curious nature would make your Gemini friend’s heart happy. Fresh flowers as a gift are not just colorful but also expressive. You could also try gifting a pen set that would help your Gemini friends be creative and intellectual on their own accord — just how they like.

Cancer (June 21- July 22)

The Cancer in your life can be a little bit of a homebody, protective of the things they love and perhaps a little bit of a cosmic lover. Those born under this sign will definitely be more than okay with gifts they can love and protect. A plant or crystals are sure to do the job to help your Cancer friend hone into their sheltering self.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Leos can be a little obsessive — not just over themselves but also over celebrities. All the Leos I know are well versed in pop culture and makeup. Get the Leo in your life something that helps them channel that celeb-like confidence. A light-up makeup mirror or a candle that smells like their favorite celebrity is sure to do the job.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Virgos can be a little bit controlling and over-the-top meticulous by nature. The perfect day for your Virgo friend could include a cleaning routine, turning on the essential oil diffuser you got them and getting to plan their day in their new planner. With a Virgo, it's easy to assume their dreams will come true.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Though Libras can be a little mysterious, they're also somehow always put together — and when they walk in, everyone’s enticed. Libras love the finer things in life and will always say yes to a little something nice. Let your Libra bestie keep up their lifestyle with a nice perfume, cologne or a chic tote bag.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Scorpios are sultry, fiery and a little bit challenging. Gifts that reflect self-care and love are guaranteed to satisfy a Scorpio’s heart. A Barefoot Dreams blanket (currently on sale!) is a safe choice because it's comfortable and of nice quality. Also, when you think red, you think Scorpio — so red lipstick is guaranteed to win them over.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

The Sagittarius you know might be emotionally intelligent, a little silly and highly unpredictable. Sagittarius’ are always looking to move on to bigger and better things at a considerably faster pace than others. Help them channel their desire to learn by getting them a book. Or get them a "Burn After Writing" journal to help quell their unpredictable nature.
