The Top 10 Gifts for Your Friends and Loved Ones Who Were Born in September
Your September-born pals are about to complete another trip around the sun, so it’s time to show them a little love. Astrologer Haley Comet — yes, that’s her name! — was kind enough to share her cosmic wisdom with us, so you can use the stars to guide your gift-giving to the Virgos and Libras in your life. These gifts were hand-picked by Haley and are sure to be hits with anyone celebrating a birthday this month.
1. Brushed Stainless Steel Spice Rack
“Your Virgo would love any gift that allows them to find more order and detail in their lives,” says Comet. How about a spice rack then? “This will allow them to soothe their deep need for organization,” she explains.

2. Baker Stripe Dish Towels
“With pleasurable, beautiful Venus as their ruler, Libras will love any gift that is aesthetically pleasing,” says Comet. Gift yours a set of new dish towels. Libras are the type to put linens on display, either out on the counter or hung on their oven door handle.

3. Fruits & Greens Meal Planner Notepad
Always a planner, that Virgo! So the one in your life should appreciate a food journal or meal planning notebook, says Comet. It can be used to plan out the week’s meals, track a grocery list, or as a place to jot down restaurants to try.

4. White Marble Lazy Susan
“Libras rule interpersonal relationships,” says Comet. “So your Libra would adore some sort of lazy Susan, where food can go around the table without cutting into the conversation,” says Comet.

5. Rosti Mepal Microwavable Nested Storage Bowls
“Containers are always a Virgo’s best friend, so they can sort accordingly,” says Comet. She’ll appreciate this chic blush set, which is shallow enough to stack up high in the fridge. Did we mention they’re also freezer-, dishwasher-, and microwave-safe? Your practical Virgo is going to love them.

6. Berglander Flatware
If something is unique or different, Libra will be all about it. So Comet suggests new silverware with a cool shape or novelty finish. “Give them the visual enhancements their Venusian self so desires,” she says. This rainbow flatware is sure to be a hit.

7. Eat Clean, Play Dirty
“Virgos rule health, so gift your Virgo a new cookbook full of healthy recipes,” says Comet. Try the recently released Eat Clean, Play Dirty: Recipes for a Body and Life You Love by the Founders of Sakara Life. Virgos can definitely get down with a little plant-based eating.

8. Register Copper Placemat
According to Comet, interesting placemats are another pick for Libra, simply because they love all things that are beautiful. These metal round ones are definitely showstoppers — they can even be used as trivets! Buy a few for your Libra.

9. Hexagon Place Card Holder
If you’ve ever been to a Virgo’s dinner party, then you know this sign is all about entertaining. “Virgo has a detail-oriented mind that makes them gifted in giving their guests all the most thoughtful finishing touches,” says Comet. So she’ll flip for these simple geometric place card holders. She can even use them for identifying items in her legendary buffet spreads.

10. Kista Tray
Libras are also known for their lit parties, as the kids say. But they’re less about design details and more about the socializing part of a gathering, so play into that. “A Libra would deeply appreciate an hors d’oeuvres tray, so they can be the social butterfly they are at parties they host, flitting from group to group with their signature Libran charm,” says Comet.
