Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Capricorn
A Capricorn likes to be grounded, calm, and solution-oriented. Give them a product that helps them embody all of those traits, like the Saint Jane Beauty Luxury CBD Beauty Serum ($125). The botanical blend stays true to their earth sign roots and is packed with antioxidants to calm redness and soothe the skin. Combine the serum with a jade roller if they don't already have one.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Aquarius
An Aquarius loves anything eccentric and unique — just like them. The Georgia Louise Cryo Facial Freeze Tools ($130) are designed to be stored in the refrigerator or freezer and help boost circulation when rolled across the face. It combines the Aquarius' appreciation for innovation and technology with their love for all things quirky and unconventional.
Feb. 19-March 20: Pisces
Help the Pisces in your life flex their artistic muscles with a versatile eyeshadow palette. The Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez Confident Energy Eyeshadow Palette ($25) features six shimmery powder eyeshadows in a variety of bold hues. Now they can switch up their look depending on their (many) moods.
March 21-April 19: Aries
The Jillian Dempsey Gold Sculpting Bar ($195) is sleek, shiny, and effective — all qualities this fire sign appreciates. Plus, it touts instant lifting and contouring results — perfect for the impatient Aries moving at breakneck speed.
April 20-May 20: Taurus
A true Taurus will appreciate something reliable and consistent — but something that's also pretty to look at. Not only is the Dyson Supersonic™ Hair Dryer ($429) a forever tool, the sleek and modern design will appeal to their love of luxury.
June 21-July 22: Cancer
As someone who likes feeling and looking good always, a Cancer appreciates vanity. Translate this trait literally with the Riki Loves Riki Skinny LED Travel Magnifying Mirror ($230) that they can add to their actual vanity. The travel-friendly mirror folds flat, has five light settings, and is Bluetooth compatible, making makeup application a breeze.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Virgo
The quintessential Virgo is highly pragmatic, organized, and hard-working. They'll appreciate a minimal makeup bag like the Béis The Cosmetics Case ($68) that keeps their products and tools streamlined on the go. Opt for one in a warm tone as a nod to their earth sign.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Libra
A Libra values balance above all else, and nothing re-centers the mind and body like a calming bath. A container of the Lord Jones High CBD Formula Bath Salts ($50) contains a soothing blend of CBD, epsom and Himalyan pink salts, natural flower petals, and essential oils.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Scorpio
Arguably the most emotional and sensual of the signs, a Scorpio will enjoy something that taps into their intense side. A fragrance like the Tom Ford Ombré Leather Eau de Parfum ($150) is moody and mysterious, with traditionally feminine floral notes intermingling with more masculine notes of leather and cool spices.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Sagittarius
A free-spirited Sagittarius lives for adventure. No matter where they're traveling next, ensure their skin is protected with this The Inkey List Winter Skin 101 ($25). It contains the brand's bestselling Oat Cleansing Balm, Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Retinol Serum, and Caffeine Depuffing Eye Cream.
