15 December 2023

'Tis the season of joy and giving, and what better way to spread holiday cheer than by selecting the perfect gift for your loved ones based on their zodiac sign? Whether your bestie is a fiery Aries, a meticulous Virgo, or a shady Scorpio, we’ve curated a guide with gifts that’ll speak to their soul.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Dynamic and adventurous, Aries individuals thrive on excitement. Skip basic gifts and go straight for experiences that’ll set their adrenaline pumping. The Sentosa Skypark by AJ Hackett offers bungee jumps from a tower 50 metres tall. Your Aries BFF will definitely thank you for helping them end the year—or kickstart the new one—on a high.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Grounded Tauruses love quality over quantity. You can’t go wrong with supporting a local and ethical jewellery brand when shopping for these folk. Eden + Elie, for example, marries Peranakan-inspired, handcrafted, and 24K gold-plated jewellery that makes a subtle statement. Their pendants and earrings are especially popular.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Intellectual and curious, Geminis have a penchant for learning. Offer them carte blanche and buy books off their to-be-read list, or buy them a fun board game that’ll lend itself to hours of fun for everyone else in the squad. Mysterium is one we’d recommend. Here, Cluedo meets tarot as players turn into psychics tasked to solve murders via beautifully illustrated “vision” cards.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are the crybaby of the bunch (we say this with love). Speak to their sentimental side with handmade or custom gifts, like a custom perfume from Maison 21G. The atelier blends a scent based on a breezy personality quiz, and the final product also comes with a one-of-a-kind label.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Extroverted Leos love being the centre of attention, so get them an eye-catching accessory that ensures they’ll always stand out from the crowd. 2023 has been the year of exaggerated bags, and we foresee that trend carrying into the new year. Brands like Puppets and Puppets craft purses with the zaniest touches—think rhinestone bananas as handles—but if you prefer to shop local, the line of cult puffer sling bags from The Paper Bunny marry function and loud colours.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos are all about detail, planning, and organisation. Show their inner micromanager you care by getting them a custom planner or notebook. Analogue gifts go the extra mile in our digital world, and we know your Virgo’ll adore the notebooks from ethical, Penang-based Mucca Paper. The brand’s notebooks are meant to be sandboxes for you to design according to your needs. Choose the style, the binding, the type of paper, and the cover. If you want a binder, Mucca Paper offers sustainable leather sourced from Tuscany to boot.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Libras value balance and peace—it’s no surprise, their sign’s icon is a scale. Show the Libra homebody in your life a little bit of love by treating them to a bougie-scented candle so that their space is just that much more cosy. Diptyque’s Feu De Bois is a fave amongst celebrities like John Mayer for its woodsy scent, evocative of a log fire on a rainy day. 

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios are known for their intensity and their investigative nature. Feed their need to find out everyone’s deepest secrets by gifting them the We’re Not Really Strangers set. The game is designed to build connections via levels of probing questions, a Scorpio-coded card game, if we’ve ever seen one. 

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittariuses are one of the most hedonist signs in the zodiac, so fuel their love for a good party with the all-new 1664 Prestige, a limited-release holiday special from the French beer brand, 1664. The fresh, light beer is brewed with champagne years and presented in a sleek champagne bottle, complete with gold accents and a cork to pop.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Ambitious and disciplined, Capricorns appreciate gifts that enhance their grindset. If the Capricorn in your life can’t start their nine-to-six without a cuppa coffee, consider buying them a high-end thermal coffee mug. Zojirushi makes some of the best thermal flasks in the game, and their wares come in gorgeous hues too.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Aquariuses are eclectic and often have niche interests, or enjoy being nudged towards novel pursuits. If they’ve not yet gotten on the pottery bandwagon, sign them up for a class or a series at Urth and Phire, a homegrown studio. If getting their hands dirty isn’t really up the alley of your resident Aquarius, then consider workshops from other crafts.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces, the dreamiest star sign, will love fitted sheets and pillowcases from Sojao. Available in a variety of colours, including festive olive and clay, these organic cotton beddings are oh-so-comfortable. If your Pisces pal always has their heads in the clouds, Sojao’s wares make that literal.
