Astrology says a lot about who we are as individuals, so during this season of giving, it makes sense to buy someone zodiac-inspired gifts based on their birth chart. But before you start purchasing based on the receiver’s sun sign (what you typically read when you check your horoscope), astrologer Stephanie Campos-Powell of Leona Moon Astrology suggests considering a different part of their astrological makeup for gifting. Zodiac-inspired gifts based on the gift-receiver's moon sign (which is reflective of our emotional personality) or Venus sign (because Venus deals with what we like and dislike) will likely resonate, she says.

“Venus speaks to our hobbies and what we are attracted to, and the moon represents our comfort,” Campos-Powell says. “People's sun signs are often very different from their moon and Venus signs, so I would look at their entire birth chart” before purchasing a gift. To get a gander at your gift recipient's birth chart, you’ll need their date and time of birth as well as the city in which they were born. Plug that info into your favorite astrology app or an online generator like this one. Of course, if you don't know that information, sun-sign-inspired gifts are likely to hit home as well.
Without further ado, below find 36 zodiac-inspired gifts that'll make the gift receiver feel as though the stars aligned for them this holiday season.
36 zodiac-inspired gifts for every sign.
Because Aries is ruled by Mars, which is very action-oriented, Campos-Powell suggests giving your moon and Venus in Aries loved ones zodiac-inspired gifts that they can use as part of their exercise routine, like a punching bag or an Apple Watch.

Another great gift for moon and Venus Aries’ is this inflatable punching ball, which features a durable base, an adjustable shaft, a pair of boxing gloves, and an inflation pump for your boxing ball.
“Taurus is all about comfort and it's no secret they usually enjoy time in the kitchen,” says Campos-Powell. If your loved one’s chart reflects a Venus or moon Taurus, consider gifting them a weighted blanket or high-end kitchen gear.

Not only are weighted blankets amazingly comfy, but they also apply pressure that simulates hugs we receive from people we love and reduce the body’s release of the stress hormone cortisol, making it a perfect gift for moon and Venus Tauruses.
Tauruses will love any kitchen goodies, but this highly coveted KitchenAid mixer is perhaps a perfect 10.
This set of four Italian wine glasses is sure to be enjoyed by moon and Venus Tauruses.
Because Geminis are among the most curious signs of the zodiac, they love to soak up knowledge and are likely to be actively reading at least one book at any given time. Reading-related gifts are great for them, because they stimulate the mind, says Campos-Powell.

This gorgeous 30-piece bookmark set would make a nice gift for moon and Venus Geminis because they’re visually stunning and are tied to culture.
Like the Earth sign Taurus, water sign Cancer is all about comfort. Cancers care about creating “a space within their home that is welcoming for those they love the most,” says Campos-Powell. “Their nostalgia is also next-level, so any gift that highlights a memorable time from the past will melt their heart,” she adds.

Campos-Powell says that Cancer moon and Venus people would enjoy receiving a gift in the form of sentimental framed photos. This frame gallery allows you to gift five photos and is an aesthetically pleasing addition to the gift receiver’s home.
Campos-Powell says that Cancer moon and Venuses will find a great gift in a cozy blanket for their sofa or bed. While this knitted throw blanket comes in more than 20 colors, the Blue Wing Teal would be great for Cancers in particular because it’s reminiscent of their sign’s element of water.
Fire sign Leos love to shine, says Campos-Powell. Because Leos like to look good, great gifts for them would include makeup, nail polish, and skin-care essentials.
3 gifts for Leo
These JLo sheet masks are sure to make the moon and Venus Leos in your life smile from ear to ear upon receiving them.
“Sure, Virgos like tangible gifts, but the real gift that speaks louder than words or a seasonal object is helping out with chores or surprising them with a clean house,” says Campos-Powell.
That said, because Virgos are ruled by the planet Mercury—the planet of intellect, communication, and internal dialogue—"anything that gets the mind moving like that is fair game for...Virgos,” adds Campos-Powell.

Virgos are lovers of self-care, so wellness-focused gifts—like this Lunarly Self-Care Gift Box—would be a welcome gift for moon and Venus Virgos. The self-care gift boxes vary in their specific contents, but regardless, your Virgo friends will enjoy the gift because it provides an opportunity for them to reconnect with themselves.
Crystals can be used for healing, so it stands to reason that Virgo moon and Venus people in your life would love to receive this. The kit comes with six stones, including green jade (the stone of strength), citrine (the success stone), and smokey quartz (the stone of power).
“Libras do have depth, but there is also a superficial side, thanks to their planetary ruler Venus,” says Campos-Powell. That’s because, again, Venus can tell us a lot about what we value in life. Like Leos, Libras like to look good, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
3 gifts for Libra
Nail polish would be a great gift for moon and Venus Libras, says Campos-Powell. And since we don’t all have time in the world to wait for our nails to dry, when we do an at-home manicure, air sign Libra would appreciate this instant-drying nail polish.
“Scorpios are tough and they want everyone to know,” says Campos-Powell. For this reason, she recommends gifting moon and Venus Scorpios a leather jacket. “There’s nothing that screams ‘badass’ more than a leather jacket,” adds Campos-Powell.

The cool factor of this Levi’s faux leather jacket makes it a thoughtful gift to give a Scorpio.
It’s true that nothing says badass quite like a leather jacket, but leather leggings are a close second.
According to Campos-Powell, Sagittarians are always planning their next adventure—and that’s if they’re not already on the move. For this reason, it makes sense to get them gifts that they can take with them whenever, wherever.
3 gifts for Sagittarius
This blush pink overnight bag is a practical and fashionable gift for the jet-setting Sagittarius in your life. It also comes with plenty of internal and external pockets and interchangeable straps, allowing it to double as a weekender bag.
Campos-Powell says that Capricorns are pretty skeptical about the gifting process, which makes it crucial to gift moon and Venus Capricorns something practical. “If they can use it at work...even more points,” she adds.
3 gifts for Capricorn
This two-in-one weekly planner and journal has organizational and introspection benefits that Earth sign Capricorns value.
“Ruled by Uranus, the planet of surprises, this is one zodiac sign that is rather unpredictable,” says Campos-Powell, so you’ll want to give them gifts that they can take with them—or a gift that can show where they’ve gone.
3 gifts for Aquarius
“Gift the Aquarian in your life a backpack, so they can always have a set of clothes and whatever they need as they set off on their next adventure or whim,” says Campos-Powell. The great thing about this corduroy backpack is that it isn’t just stylish—it’s also soft to the touch.
This 24-inch-by-17-inch poster helps Aquarians keep track of their many travels in an aesthetically pleasing way. Moreover, this is a gift you can feel extra good about giving because for every sale made, the seller plants a tree.
Because Pisces have strong and innate intuitive abilities, they’ll enjoy gifts that “help this sensitive empath tap into their otherworldly powers,” says Campos-Powell.
3 gifts for Pisces
“Pisces would enjoy candles for meditation practices or to liven up and bring warmth to their home environments,” says Campos-Powell. A unique aspect of this Birthdate one? As the name implies, you can get a candle with the exact day that the moon or Venus Pisces was born.
Tarot cards are perhaps the strongest tool around for tapping into one’s intuition. Campos-Powell says tarot cards, specifically, help Pisces tap into their divine knowledge.
Let’s say that you know your moon or Venus Pisces friend won’t love tarot cards because they’re more keen on words than images. Cue: Oracle cards. Oracle cards are similar to tarot cards, but their meanings are written out on the card—making them easier to read and, ultimately, interpret. This deck is inspired by crystals and features one-word suggestions to guide you on your spiritual path.
