By Victoria Cowan, 16 December 2021
Ever wondered whether you could buy gifts based on someone’s Zodiac sign? Well, considering we look to our horoscopes for pretty much everything else, from love to success, career advice to an explanation of our crazy quirks, the idea that we could base the ideal gift on someone’s Zodiac sign really isn’t outside the realms of possibility. Astrology is actually a really complex (and ancient!) practice, born out of centuries of belief, research and different cultures, so we fully believe that finding someone the perfect gift based on their star sign can be done! We’ve done our research and checked out the main characteristics of each Zodiac to give you a gift guide that’ll provide you with the best gift ideas based on your Zodiac sign.
Understanding Zodiac signs and their characteristics to find the perfect gift for them
There are twelve Zodiac or Star signs in the Zodiac calendar and each of them fit in one of the four elements: Water, Fire, Earth and Air. These elements have certain characteristics that link the signs that fall within them. You’ll often notice that your Zodiac sign vibes very strongly with other Zodiac signs within that same elemental group, because certain personality traits mesh well.
Water signs and their characteristics
Still waters run deep, and that deep emotion is what represents Water signs most. They are the most emotional and highly-sensitive of the Zodiac signs, extremely intuitive and mysterious, they truly reflect the water that they’re named for. Water signs are Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, and if you’re buying a gift for them you’ll be doing so because they’ve always been there for you. So we think something deeply personal is the way to go! Go for a gift such as our Love Life Bracelet, or personalised Birth month piece of jewellery.
Fire signs and their characteristics
You’ll know you’re friends with a fire sign even without knowing it! You’ll recognise them by their fire-cracker personality! Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are the fire signs and they’re the most passionate, dynamic and temperamental people you’re likely to meet. Full of energy and an adventurous spirit, we know why you’d want to be friends with them. Your best bet when buying a gift for this Zodiac sign is to get something to honour their intelligence, self-awareness, creativity and idealism. Go for a colourful gift to really represent their inner fire.
Earth signs and their characteristics
Earth signs are the most grounded of all the Zodiac signs, and they’re sure to keep your feet firmly on the ground too. Your Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn friends are likely the most conservative, realistic but also emotional members of the bunch. But one thing’s for sure, they’re also your most loyal and stable friends, sure to stick by you through thick and thin, which definitely deserves to be honoured with an amazing gift to suit their Zodiac sign. Simple, elegent and delicate gifts are best for these zodiacs.
Air signs and their characteristics
If the loved ones you’re buying a Zodiac gift for are rational, social, communicative and super friendly, they’re most likely to be one of the Air signs: Gemini, Libra or Aquarius. Your Air sign friends love social gatherings and are real thinkers who love giving advice and having philosophical discussions. These kids can be quite superficial though, so buying a gift based on this Zodiac sign can be quite tricky!
Leo - July 23 - August 22
If you know a Leo, you’ll know! Vibrant, confident, vivacious, these are all characteristics of this warm and protective Zodiac. Count yourself lucky if you call this Zodiac a friend, because they’re some of the most protective people you’ll meet. If you’re looking for a gift to suit this Zodiac sign, look no further than a piece from our Starmood or MOOD collection. Jewellery pieces in warm tones & colours, that make a real statement, we couldn’t think of a better fit for a Leo to be honest!
Virgo - August 23 - September 22
If you have a friend who is super driven and detail-oriented, someone who will always throw the best looking parties with every detail thought of and planned out, chances are she’s a Virgo. She seems shy, but once you’re really her friend you’ll never again be without their friendship. Celebrate this friendship with a beautiful, delicate piece of jewellery like the pieces from our Shimmer collection. Always remember though, that your Virgo friends appreciate finer details, so get your gift beautifully gift wrapped as well.
Libra - September 23 - October 22
Libras are probably your best-dressed friends. These laid-back girls who love harmony, daydreaming, and aesthetics would really appreciate an on-trend clothing item or something beauty related. Think something like a cool faux-leather blazer or a teddy coat, a cute beret would also make a great gift for this Zodiac sign. A Libra loves symmetry, which is represented in their sign: the scales, so geometrically shaped jewellery would also be a great go-to gift!
Scorpio - October 23 - November 21
Scorpios are passionate, mysterious, loyal and jealous. You don’t want to get on their bad side, because they’ll never forgive you, but if they’re your friend then you’ll be friends for life. Looking for the perfect gift based on this Zodiac sign? Well, Scorpios are big fans of black and leather, so we think they’d love a pair of leather pants. Although, given their individualistic tendencies they’d also cherish a personalised piece of jewellery such as a necklace from the Initial collection.
