When selecting gifts, it can be difficult to decide which one best suits a person’s needs. Consideration must be taken for a person’s astrological sign before making a choice. Astrological signs have many different characteristics, and the perfect host gift should reflect this. This article will provide ideas for gifts for every zodiac sign in order to ensure the perfect host gift for any special occasion.
Beginning with Aries, the perfect gift for these passionate individuals is something to spark creativity. Considering they are fiercely independent, they need something that they can count on to always express themselves. Consider gifting them books, a journal or a nice set of art supplies.
Gift giving to a Taurus is best when it comes to something luxurious and sophisticated. These individuals prize beauty and comfort, so a special candle, a good perfume or a handmade jewelry box would make them happy.
The suggested gift for a Gemini is interesting and fun. As the symbol of the Twins suggests, Geminis have dual personalities. Something that reflects their versatility would be the perfect host gift for them. Puzzle books, silly games or tickets to concerts or cultural events would be great ideas.
If the lucky recipient is a Cancer, a personalized gift will likely be most appreciated. As a sign of emotion and sensitivity, a present that speaks to their heart is the best option. You could focus on something sweet like a photo album, picture frame or a heartfelt handwritten note.
For the free-spirited Leo, luxury and grandeur work wonders in creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. An intricate throw blanket, a bottle of champagne or even a statement piece of furniture could be the perfect gift for them.
The Virgo personality is known for its practicality and reliability, so a well thought out and useful gift would be best. Notepads, travel mugs or even a reusable grocery bag could make the perfect host gift for a Virgo.
Libra are known for their design sensibility, so a gift that not only looks good but also works well would be ideal. Consider a minimalist kitchen apron, an art print or even a modern desk accessory.
Individuals born under Scorpio are determined and focused and would benefit from a present that helps them achieve their goals. Consider luxurious stationary, an inspirational book or even a dream journal.
Sagittarius’ are known for their wanderlust and sense of adventure. They need something that allows them to explore and discover the world around them. Consider something like a telescope, a pair of hiking boots or even a globe.
For Capricorn’s, success is the highest priority. As a sign of ambition, a present that helps them with their career pursuits or a nice fountain pen could make the perfect host gift.
For the Aquarius, opt for something that accommodates their eccentric nature. Interesting and out of the ordinary items could make them happy. A vintage travel poster, a plant with an interesting geometric pot or a set of vintage postcards could be ideal.
Finally, Pisces are dreamers, so something that is imaginative and creative could be a great gift. Coloring books, art prints, or even a nice fountain pen could all be perfect for them.
No matter who you are honoring, effort should be put into selecting the perfect host gift that reflects the recipient’s zodiac sign. These suggestions are sure to help you pick the perfect present that will be sure to make a lasting impression. [ad_1]

If you’re lucky enough to receive a party or dinner invitation, it’s best to not show up empty handed. Bringing a small gift for the host signals you’re thankful to be there, but it can be tough to decide what to bring. And while it’s usually welcome, another bottle of wine isn’t exactly groundbreaking. But just as in so many other areas of our lives, astrology can provide a fun way to determine which small token of entertaining-related gratitude would be most appreciated by every zodiac sign as a host gift.
By using your host’s sun sign (which is their birthday), it’s possible to identify gifts that highlight some of their personality traits. “You can then be more connected to their needs, what they value, and what they appreciate,” says Stephanie Gailing, astrologer and author of The Complete Guide to Living By the Moon.
Belowm Gailing and astrologer and psychic intuitive coach Alex Caiola give intel into each sign’s main characteristics and likes. Then, we used their insights to pick out some fun products that’ll make any host smile. Read on for the best host gifts to give each zodiac sign.
The best host gift to give each zodiac sign, according to astrologers
A cardinal fire sign and the beginning of the zodiac, Aries likes to initiate things, which makes them great hosts and partiers. They’re also known for their assertiveness and enjoy experiences. A beautiful match cloche and striker is a home-specific way to honor their fiery nature.
Another great gift for Aries is a play on those sharp edges that’s both funny and useful—a knife sharpener. “They also have senses of humor where they’d think that’s funny and cool,” Caiola says.
Taurus, a fixed earth sign, is practical and nature-oriented, but also very in tune with their senses, which makes anything scented and food-related a good bet. Because of their nurturing nature, Caiola says “they’re easy for a host gift.”
For savory-minded Tauruses, consider a gift that comes from the earth like this beautiful carafe of rich olive oil produced in Puglia, Italy. And for those with a sweet tooth, opt for the gift of luxury with a fancy set of high-quality vanilla extracts from baker’s favorite Nielsen-Massey.
An air sign, Gemini is the life of the party and a conversation starter. They may not need your help getting everyone talking, but a fun party game that can ease conversations along would make a great gift so everyone else can match their oratory speed. According to Gailing, Gemini also rules the hands, so a beautiful and useful set of salad tongs could aid in their entertaining endeavors, too.
Uncommon Goods: The Hygge Conversation Game — $20.00
Meant to create a cozy environment for deeper relationships like its name implies, this set of conversation starting cards is sure to get everyone talking and connecting so Gemini can relax a bit at their own event.
Burke Decor: Area Ware Serving Friends — $40.00
These funky salad tongs play on the duplicity that Gemini loves, and lends any table a whimsical edge. Made of oiled beechwood and conceived by designer Selena Liu for Area Ware, they are available in three fun variations.
Cancer is the zodiac’s consummate host because of their nurturing and giving nature, so a great gift is something that allows them to make others feel nourished. “Something that everyone eats from,” like a beautiful serving platter or deep wood salad bowl, taps into this need, Gailing says; a subscription to a cooking website or magazine that they can use to prepare dishes for their friends is a great idea, too.
New York Times: NYT Cooking Subscription — $40.00
Gift Cancer the best of the best in terms of recipe quality and quantity: a year-long gift subscription to the New York Times’ cooking app that will make it easier for them to prepare numerous delicious dishes each season.
The zodiac sign associated with royalty and confidence, Leo loves “anything that’s gold, lavish, or in a luxurious color,” Gailing says. For something useful and elegant that’s sure to be the center of any room it’s in, gift a beautiful and ornate tray. Another option? A luxe scented candle with richly layered notes that honors Leo’s status as a fixed fire sign.
Contained in a red, jewel-like vessel, this double wick candle’s luxe scent is inspired by Jazz-age icon Josephine Baker. The soy vegetable wax ensures a clean burn and serves as a vessel for the layered and rich blend of rose, jasmine, warm amber, tonka bean, and sandalwood.
As the sign most associated with the harvest, Virgo has a particular closeness to the earth and anything botanical that comes from it. “They’re usually really good with plants, so I feel like an herb to have in their kitchen that they can use would be great,” Caiola says. For the Virgo who lacks a green thumb, a beautiful chest of herbal teas would be a welcome substitute.
Plants.com: Mini Herb Garden Trio — $33.99
Originally $39.99, now $33.99
This understated kitchen herb garden will impart flavors and freshness into any of Virgo’s dishes. If nothing else, this set of rosemary, mint, and oregano will make their kitchen smell amazing.
A sign that appreciates beauty and style (Venus is its ruling planet), Libra appreciates art and fashion, plus luxury and indulgence. You wouldn’t go wrong with a beautiful coffee table book aligned with the host’s interests, or a sweet and indulgent treat. Gailing says they’re also very social, so a set of beautiful champagne flutes or coupes would be welcome, too.
Rizzoli: Valentino: Themes and Variations — $44.49
Originally $80, now $44.49
The house of Valentino has been having a moment lately thanks to its shocking pink ensembles seen on celebrities like Zendaya and Lizzo, but the legendary Italian fashion house has long been known for its haute couture. This comprehensive zeroes in on that rich history and includes a chapter from the founder of the brand himself. It’ll provide fashion-forward Libra hours of entertainment and would serve as a beautiful display piece on a coffee table.
A water sign, Scorpio is fascinated by depth and “likes to get to the bottom of things and solve mysteries,” Gailing says. Sultry and passionate, they appreciate well-made items and are “very much at home in the dark,” so a set of sumptuous dark chocolates would be a great gift to share. Black obsidian stones are associated with this sign too, so something in that rich material would also be welcome.
Worldly and wise, Sagittarius people are curious about what’s happening around them. “They like the bigger picture and freedom, but there’s this edge of possibility,” Gailing says. “They’re very glass half-full kind of people.” A collection of spices from around the globe helps them visit those far off places and dive into new dishes.
This knack for being out and about and desire to see beyond themselves makes them great photographers; a high quality instant print camera helps Sag bring the fun and makes it so guests can take a piece of it home with them, too.
Burlap & Barrell: Chef’s Collection — $54.99
Originally $57.94, now $54.99 Gift adventurous Sag with a symphony of global flavors that’ll transport them through cuisine. This six piece set that features big flavors from Turkey, Guatemala, and Afghanistan. Supporting Burlap & Barrel’s sustainable and local supply chains is a bonus.
According to Gailing, Capricorn, the zodiac’s cardinal earth sign, appreciates anything timeless and practical. Gift them with an adjustable vase that can be attached to their existing vessels to make something new. They also have an affinity for wood, Caiola says.
Fruit Super: Anywhere Vases — $44.00
This set turns any of Capricorn’s vessels into a vase—a money and time-saving hack the frugal and practical sign will appreciate. They come in three shapes and are made of powder coated steel and cork.
Two of Aquarius’ most positive qualities are curiosity and vision, so a host gift that tickles that would be fitting. They tend to enjoy technological items, so a useful tool is a great gift. “They’re super innovative so they love to explore things that really make them think, and they love a gadget,” Caiola says.
Give them gadgets that’ll make hosting easier and more joyful: Petite portable lanterns can be used indoors and out, and an 8-in-1 stackable kitchen tool will make whipping up apps and mains a delight.
Butefo: 8-in-1 Kitchen Tool Set — $12.99
Originally $13.99, now $12.99 This playful contraption does more than meets the eye—it contains eight different kitchen tools, including: a funnel, juicer, grater, and can opener. But wait, there’s more! All this fun comes stored in a large bottle resembling a wine glass. Get ready for Aquarius to show this off nonstop.
Think of the sea and great blue beyond for Pisces’ host gift, Gailing says. A set of beautiful finishing salts and something with the symbol of the fish are great ways to pay tribute to this water sign’s traits when they host.
Jacobsen Salt Co.: Eight Vial Infused Salt Set — $40.00
Harvested in Pacific Northwest, these infused salts will give Pisceans motivation to experiment with seasonings while paying homage to the sea. This set of eight vials includes flavors such as black garlic, smoked cherrywood, and habanero.
Fishwife Tinned Seafood Co.: The Classic Smokey Trio — $33.00
This set of sustainably caught tinned seafood is a welcome addition to any cracker or baguette, and would look great on a cheeseboard alongside some olives. Included in this set of three fishes smoked over hardwood are Norwegian Atlantic salmon, albacore tuna from the Pacific Northwest, and smoked rainbow trout from Idaho.
