It is said that each sign is wiser with the lessons learnt by the previous signs. As Aries leads the zodiac wheel, they only possess blind optimism preferring to learn lessons the hard way.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Taurus is an Earth sign, whose spirit animal is the bull. The sign is governed by Venus, the planet of love, beauty and money. Comfort and luxury are the essential requirements for a Taurus. Taureans always feel content when pampered, and relish under pleasure.
Taureans especially love pampering themselves, be it in a spa or in a tub flowing with nourishing oils. They are also practical when needed - they know they require money for their luxuries, and are resilient, focused and ambitious in their word. Taureans always think about the long-term - they always plan ahead, be it in professional or romantic seeking. They prefer things to remain stable - they don't respond well to any threats to their security.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Driven by their numerous passions, Geminis have a huge around of friends. They love each and every sort of gossip - they can talk to anyone about anything.
Socialists by nature, they buzz around in the company of people. They also are strong in the process of change and transformation. Pioneers by nature, they channel their energy in creation and brainstorming. The fearless thinkers and intellectually curious Gemini always love to try something new.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Cancer is a water sign, represented by the crab. Cancers are extremely strong in both emotional and material stages. They rely a lot on their intuitions, and are very sensitive and highly self-protective. Shielded by hard, crustaceous shells, much like crabs, they might appear cold from the outset.
However, deep down, they are gentle, compassionate and empathetic. Ruled by the moon, the star of comfort, Cancers have maternal instincts and care about their family a lot. They quickly tend to the caregiver role in their family ecosystem, and like to build a comfortable surrounding for their personal sanctuary.
Cancers love to be in comfortable surroundings. Put the literal shell around their figurative crustaceous shell with this snug Travel Hoodie Pillow. While the hoodie will keep them warm and cozy, the pillow provides for a comfortable back rest - while travelling or while at work, leaning into their chair. The travel hoodie pillow will protect them from sudden jerks and sprains while travelling, and keep them safe and sound during their journeys.
Tap into Cancer's maternal instincts with this adorable children's play mat. Soft, plush and comfortable, this will keep their children comfortable. Made of cotton with a cat-like design, this mat can be the playground for all of their children's hi jinks.
For a Cancer, the best gift may well be a Gift for Kids - given their innate maternal and caregiver instincts.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Leos are represented by the lion, the king of the jungle. A fire sign, they are every bit as fearless and passionate as a lion. They love to have the spotlight for themselves, and bask in it. Natural leaders, they like to take control of proceedings in their typical domineering fashion.
Governed by the sun, the star of life and vitality, Leos are stable, loyal and consistent. They tend to leave no stone unturned - they don't care about what other people think about them, and speak their mind out. Leo's pursuit of dominance can also turn into ego and pride.
What better gift to a Leo than a gear clock in the shape of their spirit animal itself? Leos are in many ways like a lion, and love to roar uninhibitedly. This lion gear table clock will be the ideal companion to have by their bedside or on their office desk, as they prepare to rule the roost.
Leos, by nature, are expressive. They like to roar hard and roar loud. They never beat around the bush - Leos speak their mind out. Keeping that in mind, the F Off Socks will be a hilarious gift for any Leo - they will now be able to speak their mind out from their socks, and not just their mouth.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Virgo, an Earth sign, is represented by the Goddess of agriculture. Every Virgo is extremely logical, and is very practical and rational in their approach. They invariably have an insatiable hunger for perfection, and will do whatever it takes to achieve perfection - regardless of how much effort, hard work and perseverance it requires.
Virgoes want to know how things work, and what makes them work. They are always aware of every detail. They like to sort things out in an organized manner - however jumbled something would be, they will make it as neat as possible. Virgos are often sometime too engrossed in their meticulous research, for their own good.
Virgos are driven by logic and rationale. They have a compulsive need to plan everything in their strive for perfection. The 6 Month Study Planner will help them invaluably in their pursuit.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)
An air sign, Libra is represented by scales - which touches upon their innate need on balance and harmony. Much like the duality in scales, Libras love symmetry and wish to maintain equilibrium. Libras are extremely intellectual in nature and are connoisseurs of high art and other exquisite produce.
Libras give special importance to their relationships and wish to always be in harmony with their partners and mates. Libras do have a compulsion to please everyone, and may go too far in this process. Being a cardinal sign, they also struggle with indecision. However, they are great at initiating plans and ideas, and resolving conflicts in social situations.

This hilarious decision maker paperweight will help them do just that - with several answers for their questions in the roulette. It'll help them funk up their work or study desk, as well as function as a chrome-iron built paperweight to keep all their pesky papers in check.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Scorpio, a water sign, has all the traits of a typical water sign - extremely clairvoyant, intuitive, psychic, mystical and emotional. Similar to their spirit animal, the scorpion, Scorpios wait for their prey and then strike when the target is not expecting it. Extremely calculative in their approach, Scorpios always plan ahead - and love to remain steps ahead of their competitors.
They often play the long game in pursuit of their targets, and possess a wily guile about them. They are always mysterious - they never like to show the hand of cards they've been dealt, and always display a poker face, regardless of their actual mood. Scorpios are also guided by an indomitable need for power, and can be vengeful and possessive in certain situations. They can, however, display empathy, depth, commitment and trust when they form reliable relationships with people.
Scorpios are always mysterious in nature - you never know what to expect for them. Appeal to the enigma in Scorpios with this Gothic Cloak which has an air of mystery around it. Available in different colors and sizes, choose one to tailor the preferences of your beloved Scorpio.
When they don't get what they need, Scorpios have a tendency to be nefarious and vengeful. Help them be vengeful - in a hysterical manner - with this flying ghost skeleton. With a voice and motion sensor, it detects when people walk in - and responds with creepy laughs and other scary sound effects. With its glowing LED red eyes, it is bound to scare the living soul of the person who messed with a Scorpio!
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Sagittarius are the last fire sign on the zodiac wheel. Represented by the archer, they are always on the hunt for knowledge, with the belief that knowledge is power. Like an archer shoots his arrows, Sagittarius shoot several pursuits - and go on several kinds of adventures. With an insatiable wanderlust, they want to live as much life as possible and traverse as many miles as they can.
Sagittarius are great storytellers, with their unbeatable experience in travel. They are extremely charming in nature and have no problems attracting friends and mates. They always have their tongues in cheek and are infectiously witty. Sometimes arrogant, Sagittarius generally mean good. They require freedom to roam and explore on their own terms.
Sagittarius have an insatiable hunger for adventure. One day, they'll climb Mt. Everest. The other day, they'll take a one man submarine to Mariana Trench. Their pursuit of adventure knows no bounds - it can be hard to keep track of it. Gift them this 365 Bucket List box, which will allow them to note down their adventures - past, present and future. With quirky prompts and space to note down their experiences, as well as a multi-color pen and masking tape to do it with, this will be the quintessential gift for a Sagittarius.

With its unique J-shape, it provides a headrest, chinrest and neckrest - all in one go. The journey is often more important than the destination - let their journeys be comfortable.

Aquarius' are sharp thinkers, who want to revolutionize the world - every Aquarius is a rebel deep down inside, always trying to oppose conventions and authorities.
The sign is ruled by Uranus - the planet of innovation and technology.

Pisces is symbolized by two fishes swimming in the opposite directions. Pisces are the last constellation of zodiac and are said to have went through every lesson - the ups and the downs, the highs and the low. As a result, they are said to be empathetic, compassionate and sensitive. Ruled by Neptune, the planet of creativity and dreams, Pisces have uninhibited imaginations and dreams.
They have an almost surreal ocean-like energy about them - magical, mysterious and often scary. Pisces are also said to be hopeless romantics - they also like to comfort their loved ones. At times, Pisces can be gullible and clingy, but they always have warm intentions at heart.
