Need a suggestion on what to ask for this holiday season? Let the stars be your guide. Aliza Kelly Faragher, Allure magazine's resident astrologer and the author of The Mixology of Astrology: Cosmic Cocktail Recipes for Every Sign, gave us her tips for finding the right present based on your zodiac sign.
Hope you've been good this year because you're going to want in on these fun, sign-specific gifts.
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
"Aquarians love innovation and are all about cutting edge, cool tools," says Faragher. The Coravin, which uses a needlepoint to access wine without disturbing the bottles' cork, would be right up your alley. That way, you can have white tonight and red tomorrow.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
Stay true to your sign's roots, Pisces, and ask for a pretty water pitcher. Hello, hydration! Make drinking more water your goal for the new year.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
Circleware Gem Multi Colored Cordial Glasses, $28 for six
You're always the life of the party, Aries! Faragher says to ask for a fancy set of shot or cordial glasses — booze will definitely get a party started. You can trot this sculptural, rainbow colored collection out for your New Year's shindig.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
"Tauruses are all about a full sensory experience," says Faragher. Start dropping hints about that fancy decanter you have your eye on. It'll truly bring out the aromas and flavor of your favorite bottle.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
Eres Salt & Pepper Shakers, $20 at Anthropologie
Nothing is more apropos for you, dear Gem, than a set of salt and pepper shakers. You're the twins sign, after all. This vintage-inspired pair comes with a dish to help keep your table clean.
Cancer (June 20 to July 21)
Large Hexagon Mixed Wood Cutting Board, $149 at Etsy
"Cancers are nurturers — it's the mother sign of the zodiac," says Faragher. Because of this, you gravitate towards all things artisanal, slow, and homespun. Put a handmade cutting board on your list. You're the type that will actually take care of its finish and you can use it to feed and nurture your friends.
Leo (July 22 to August 22)
Personalized Leather Coasters, $36 at Etsy
Leos are fun and like to be the center of attention. Go for something monogrammed. That way, everyone knows it's all about you. How about a set of leather coasters with your initials on them? These cost a fraction of similar versions out there, which means your family is more likely to buy them for you.
Virgo (August 23rd to September 22)
Copper + Enamel Measuring Cups, $36 at West Elm
Virgo, you are the ultimate perfectionist. So ask for a set of super-cute measuring cups to indulge your type A ways. Then use them to bake a batch of cookies to thank the gift-giver, you overachiever.
Libra (September 23 to October 22)
Hearth & Hand with Magnolia Food Scale, $15 at Target
For a Libra, Faragher likes a literal interpretation of the sign's symbol, a scale. Find a pretty vintage kitchen model on Etsy or settle for this look-a-like from Chip and Jo.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)
The stinger sign can be a little, well, intense. Faragher suggests asking for a nice set of knives so you can channel that energy into chopping, slicing, and dicing. This set from Sabatier comes with a small-space-friendly, narrow bamboo block.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
Tower Countertop Space Rack, $30 at West Elm
If a trip around the world is too much to ask for, a spice rack is the next best thing. Even better if the gift-giver stocks the shelves. This kind of gift appeals to your wanderlust and love of all things exotic.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)
A fancy milk frother is right up your alley, Cap, since you tend to be a bit of a workaholic. Adding one of these to your kitchen appliance lineup is basically like getting the gift of unlimited lattes to help you burn the midnight oil.
