You guys, Valentine’s Day is this Sunday, so I would hope that if you’ve got a special someone to buy for, that’s already been taken care of. But if that’s not the case (and it’s definitely not, depending on your sign — you know who you are) not to worry.
Today we’ve got a roundup of pretty amazing gift ideas for that special lady in your life, completely based on her zodiac sign.
And if you’re looking for ideas for that special guy in your life, check out our Valentine’s Gift Guide for Him that we published last week!
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Your Aries is the very definition of a trendsetter. Aries is a cardinal fire sign, meaning they like to be the first one to do everything. Get this lady ram either a fashion or beauty subscription box, so she can be the first to try any trend that pops up on the market.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Taurus is ruled by Venus, goddess of love and beauty. That means no one does luxury and creature comforts like a Taurean gal. Appeal to her foodie sensibilities with high-end kitchen or serving ware, or maybe a wine of the month club. And you can’t go wrong with luxe accessories like soft throws and pillows.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Gemini gals are among the most playful around. Expensive items aren’t the way to her heart, experiences are. Surprise her with a spontaneous road trip to see the sights, or plot out a day of some of her favorite activities. Just make sure there’s plenty of good music and snacks to go around.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Much like Taurus, Cancer is all about her creature comforts. She’s also the queen of sentimentality. Framed photos of the two of you or a custom scrapbook will have her on cloud nine. So will a lovingly prepared home-cooked meal and a night on the couch watching her favorite movies.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
If you’re lucky enough to have a Leo gal in your life, you already know she loves to make a statement. Find her a unique and eye-catching piece of jewelry (Lionesses are definitely partial to gold) or a bottle of perfume that will make her stand out from the crowd and feel like royalty.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Virgos have a bit of a no-nonsense reputation, and it’s not completely untrue. This lady enjoys the finer things in life, but she’ll be even more impressed with function than form. You can’t go wrong with a nice planner or journal, or a fitness tracker to appeal to her health-conscious tendencies.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Libra, like Taurus, is ruled by the goddess of love. And what better time to dote on her than Valentine’s Day? Much like her male counterpart, Libra will love a traditional spread of flowers, chocolates, bubbly, and a fluffy stuffed animal. Lean into the cheesy side of the holiday. She’ll eat it up.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Scorpios have a reputation for being dark and mysterious, and truth be told, that’s exactly what they want you to think. Go ahead and appeal to her sensual side a little this Valentine’s Day. You could go a little racy with some lacy lingerie and massage oils, or get her a book of poetry that will make her weak in the knees.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Sagittarius is always up for an adventure, but things have definitely been lacking in the adventure department over the last year. Plan a hiking or camping trip for the two of you, plotting out your route on a (real) map and giving it to her alongside some new camping or travel gear.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Capricorn, much like Virgo, isn’t one for frivolity. She is, however, one for luxury. Surprise her with a well-made, hand-crafted leather bag or beautiful high-end watch. Or better yet, don’t surprise her. She definitely knows what she already wants, it’s just a matter of paying attention to the hints. Or, you know, just asking.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Aquarius might be the trickiest sign to buy for, because everything about them is out of the ordinary. This isn’t the girl you just grab a generic gift card for, because you know she’ll put way more thought into what she gives you. She’ll always appreciate new and novel technology, so gadgets are a good option. Or just get her something off-the-wall that reminds you of her. She’ll appreciate the effort.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Sweet, emotional Pisces, on the other hand, is pretty easy to buy for. She’ll appreciate any bit of thought that goes into a gift from you. Some sure bets, though, are yummy smelling candles, essential oils, art supplies or journals, and anything music related.
