Let’s be real, folx. Sometimes buying a gift is hard, even when it’s your bestie of a bazillion years. So, how about a new strategy this year to make things easy on yourself: gifts by zodiac sign. While we won’t let our astrological signs dictate major life decisions, we won’t deny the fun we get out of reading our monthly horoscope. Whether your giftee is a cosmic goddess or just looks up their lucky numbers and celebrity birthday twins each year, they’ll love the backstory behind it. And if not, well, at least the zodiac guarantees the gift should be a perfect fit.
While every sign has its own mood and astrological connection, the common thread for all is food. So we’ve selected the best culinary gifts for Aries, Virgo, Leo, and beyond.
Your guide to the perfect gift, assorted by zodiac sign
March 21 – April 19
Get your favorite Fire Sign a suitably smokin’ gift: namely, this artisan hot sauce from BLiS, made with three kinds of chilies (chipotle, arbor, and cayenne) and barrel-aged in seasoned oak barrels.
April 20 – May 20
Tauruses love to nest and snuggle, and soup is a solid part of that equation. These cozies from Uncommon Goods will let them safely grab a soup bowl shortly after it’s done in the microwave. (Tauruses don’t like to wait for their comfort.)
Gemini: Life of the party
May 21 – June 20
Geminis live for a soireé—and this cookbook of 50 vegan food boards will ensure their get-togethers remain memorable well into the future. (At least food-wise… we can’t control their playlist).
Cancer: Comfort seeker
June 21 – July 22
Much like a Taurus, a Cancer loves homey comforts. And what better one than baking? This aluminized steel baking sheet from Great Jones, available in a pair of eye-catching hues, is the perfect canvas for making sweet creations.
July 23 – August 22
Leo’s love a little (ok, a lot of) drama, making this sculptural serving bowl inspired by Danish modernist artist Vilhelm Lundstrøm a very suitable prezzie. It draws inspiration from Danish still lifes—and demands to be the star at any meal.
August 23 – September 22
Virgos aren’t the type to “wing it” in life, and that includes when cooking. Luckily, this sleek 22-pound Zwilling digital food scale, with accuracy to 0.1 gram, helps ensure they don’t need to. And it has a built-in battery (because no one likes to change batteries, no matter their sign).
September 23 – October 22
Libras love the luxe side of life, and what could be more indulgent than truffle oil on salads, pasta—or just to dip piping hot, crusty bread in? This one, made with black winter truffles, will take any dish from ordinary to five-star.
Scorpio: Sensual & soulful
October 23 – November 21
What better gift for your sensual Scorpio pal than some luscious chocolate? And Compartes is among the best out there. This extensive collection of vegan dark chocolate—from coconut clusters to lavish dipped fruits—is a decadent afternoon (or morning, or evening) delight.
November 22 – December 21
It’s hard to keep up with a spontaneous Sag—they move around like butterflies. But this beautifully designed, BPA-free bento-style lunch box ensures they’ll stay well-fed no matter where the wind blows them.
December 21 – January 20
Patience is a virtue few of us have, but Capricorns are willing to take the time required to yield good results in life. This slow cooker will help them do just that in the kitchen.
January 21 – February 18
Aquarians are lovers of the arts, and these naturally-sourced, plant-based, non-GMO vegan dyes are an earth-friendly way to help them take their culinary artistry to the next level.
February 19 – March 20
Just because your Pisces pal is one with water, doesn’t mean they necessarily have a good bottle. This one has a ceramic interior with a double-steel wall that’ll keep drinks warm for 12 hours and cold for 24. Plus it’s sleek and stylish.
