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.
