ARIES (March 21 - April 19)
Aries usually has a lot of energy, and they may often grow restless. When shopping for gifts for an Aries child, try gifting them something that keeps them active and engaged. They may love toys that they can take outside, such as a scooter or a bike, or any other activity that gets them up and moving around. In addition, Aries may like to have experiences over tangible gifts, so they would probably love to be gifted a trip or excursion.
TAURUS April 20 - May 20)
Taurus loves hands-on activities, where they can see visible progress from the work that they’re putting in. When choosing a gift for a Taurus child, you may want to give them a set of building blocks, wooden toys, or colorful clays that they can construct something out of. Taureans are also big foodies, so they will enjoy receiving gifts that involve the kitchen, such as a play baking set or an apron of their own.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)
Gemini is very curious, and they like learning new information and asking a lot of questions about the topics that pique their interest. A Gemini child will enjoy any gift that stimulates their mind, such as a set of books or a new puzzle. They also love socializing, so they would like receiving a new board game, because it allows them to stay focused on making strategic moves while simultaneously talking to other people.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22)
Cancer loves to nurture others, and they’re very sensitive to how people are feeling. Because they can be a bit introverted, you will want to give a Cancer child mostly toys that they can play with by themselves. They will love stuffed animals that they can take care of, and they may even like pretending to be a doctor or a vet. To satisfy their need for alone time, Cancer may also love a playhouse they can retreat to and play with their dolls.
LEO (July 23 - August 22)
Leo is usually full of artistic ideas, and they need creative outlets in which they can express themselves. A Leo child would enjoy any type of gift that involves arts and crafts, such as a painting set or a DIY costume kit. Leo also has a flair for the dramatic, and they may love playing dress up and putting on performances in the living room. They will love receiving outfits they can wear, especially if they’re embellished or very colorful.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)
Virgo is very mindful of their daily routines, and they like to set healthy habits for themselves and be constantly working on self-improvement. A Virgo child may have an interest in self-care activities, and would enjoy soothing products for bathtime. They are also very detail-oriented and like to keep track of a lot of different things at once, so they will enjoy toys that put their skills to the test, such as a musical instrument or challenging puzzle.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)
Libras value the partnerships in their life, and they like having close, one-on-one time with people. A Libra child would love receiving a gift that they can enjoy with someone else, such as a board game that requires a partner. Libras are also particular about their style and aesthetic, so may enjoy presents that have an element of fashion or beauty to them, like a jewelry set or a play makeup kit.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)
Scorpio never takes information at face value, and they love to constantly be researching on their own time. A Scorpio child may have a keen interest in learning all there is to know about very specific topics, like doctors, dinosaurs, or cars for example. They will enjoy toys that allow them to go deeper in their interests. In addition, Scorpio also loves anything mystical, so they may like unique necklaces or bracelets that they feel connected to.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)
Sagittarius loves going on new adventures and seeing more of the world. A Sagittarius child may be fond of traveling, storytelling, or reading. They would love any gift that has an educational component to it, such as a play set that helps them learn about different cultures or any type of toy that awakens their imagination. In addition, they may enjoy travel accessories like a new suitcase or backpack to get them excited about their next trip.
CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 20)
Capricorn enjoys setting goals for themselves and feeling like they’re working toward something. A Capricorn child may be fond of celebrating traditions or receiving gifts that serve a purpose and make them feel like they’re being productive. They would love to receive classic toys like a tea set or any type of game where they’re able to put their knowledge to the test. A Capricorn may also enjoy a toy that they can spend time building and feel accomplished at the end.
AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 18)
Aquarius is very future-oriented, but oftentimes they get lost in their own thoughts or find it hard to stay grounded in the present moment. They are at their best when they are able to direct their mental energy toward a project, so they would love gifts that involve reading, writing, or working with arts and crafts. Aquarius also likes to stay up to date on the latest technologies, so they may enjoy computer games or experimenting with a play camera or videomaker.
PISCES (February 19 - March 20)
Pisces has a big imagination, and they love to go off into their own little world where they can play with dolls or immerse themselves in fairytale stories. A Pisces child can be very sensitive and emotional, and often needs a lot of time alone. They would love gifts that they can enjoy by themselves, such as playing with a dollhouse or trying on different costumes. Pisces also has a naturally creative side, and they may find a lot of peace through painting, drawing, or making music.
