Shopping with the Stars
If you spend hours wondering what to buy your friends and loved ones, why not look to the stars. Knowing someone’s star sign can give you a clue about what they would most like to unwrap on their birthdays!
A. Cancer (22 June – 22 July)
Cancer’s ideal gift would be a house or a boat, but don’t worry if you don’t have that kind of money to spend! All people ruled by Cancer love anything to do with the "good old days", so an antique ornament or piece of jewellery is certain to make them smile. Almost every Cancerian collects something, and if you find out what the Crab in your life collects, you will never run out of gift ideas. Another of their passions is cooking for their friends and family, and they will definitely appreciateanything which will help them in the kitchen, such as cooking utensils or tableware. If you are on a tight budget, remember that Cancer people are sensitive and love to receive presents which have sentimentalvalue. A favourite family photograph in a simple frame will make them just as happy as that expensive yacht!
B. Libra (23 September – 23 October)
Librans are diplomatic and will tell you that they love whatever you buy them, because they are just too polite to hurt your feelings! However, if you want to make them genuinely happy, bear in mind that anyone born under the sign of Libra loves beauty. A piece of art, an ornate mirror, or a marble statue will guarantee a warm response. A gift which allows them to enhance their personal beauty will also be well-received, such as a trip to a beauty salon, or a shopping spree for a new outfit. Make sure you go along with them to offer a second option – Librans are hopeless at making decisions!
C. Capricorn (22 December –19 January)
Capricorns are not usually very sentimental, but they all like to feel materially and financially secure. They enjoy being given gifts with designer labels, as they appreciate high quality goods. All Capricorns are ambitious, hard working and dedicatedto their careers, so a business-related present is always a good idea. They are so obsessed with time and will be delighted with a watch or an antique clock. If you are thinking of buying clothes for the Capricorn in your life, make sure they are stylish classics, and not wacky fashion statements, as Capricorn people are somewhat traditional.
D. Taurus (20 April – 20 May)
Taureans have conservative tastes, but they do enjoy the touch of luxury now and then. They will always be grateful for fine leather goods or fresh flowers. What they really hope to receive is a piece of land or even cash, but they will be equally pleased with a wallet, a mirror, or a family memento. Give the Taurean in your life a chance to pamper themselves with gifts of lotions, bath oils or perfumes, or treat them to a night at the opera or a performance of classical music. That will appeal to their romantic side and definitely bring a smile to their face. And remember a quality gift is never wasted on a Taurean – they make warm and faithful friends who will never forget what you have given them.
E. Virgo (23 August – 22 September)
It is true that Virgos always appreciate a bargain, so if you can find a great gift at a low price, they will be thrilled. Nevertheless, don’t forget that all Virgos are perfectionists, and will not be impressed by imperfect products. The practical Virgo loves to receive useful presents, such as socks, shorts and other items of clothing which they may need. Virgos are also creatures of habit and like to follow routines, so a gift which will help them to organise their lives (a diary or a bookcase, for example) will be a huge success. Anything connected to health and cleanliness will also appeal to your Virgo friends. Bath products and diet books are always on their list of wanted items.
F. Sagittarius (22 November – 21 December)
Sagittarians love to play games and take risks. Sport is an obsession with them, so a new pair of rollerblades or skies will always be appreciated. A typical Sagittarian is open-minded and optimistic. They love travelling so foreign gifts are ideal, particularly if you have had them imported. For the truly perfect present, though, you should send the Sagittarian in your life on an adventure holiday. They will love every minute of it!
