    After two years of isolation, lockdown and separation from our nearest and dearest, our friends have never meant so much. No wonder Galentine’s Day, typically celebrated on the 13th of February, has grown in popularity in recent years, with Google searches seeing a massive 618.8% uplift. So to help you choose the perfect pressie for your astrology-loving gal pal, Rob Crump, a gifting expert from the personalised gift store Printster, offers this advice on how to choose the best Zodiac gifts for Galentine’s Day:

    Best Zodiac gifts for Galentine’s Day

    Aries (21st March – 19th April)

    Fiercely loyal, fiery and always up for a good time, your Aries gal pal naturally commands the room whether they go. ‘As a fire sign, the Aries is both high-energy and goal-orientated, yet still style-conscious and self-aware, meaning the perfect present is a combination of practical yet aesthetically pleasing,’ says Printster’s Rob Crump. A stylish daily planner or a bright, personalised mug with their favourite slogan will go down a treat.

    Personalised heart name mug – £6.99 | Printster
    You can add any name to this colourful heart print mug. For a little extra, you can opt to fill the mug will jelly beans or chocolates and add a matching coaster and/or a presentation gift box.

    Taurus (20th April – 20th May)

    Lovers of indulgence and luxury, the Taurus is a homebody who needs everything in its right place. ‘As the Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty, focus on aesthetically pleasing home gifts that will catch their eye while they’re practising self-care on a quiet evening,’ says Rob. House plants in pretty pots that fit their home interior and help purify the air while looking stunning at home will go down a treat. 

    Grey & Gold Foiled Base Plant – £8.50 | Oliver Bonas
    If your Taurean bestie is a plant mum, she’ll love these pretty ceramic plant pots with gold foil detailing. LAST CHANCE – Order by midnight on Thursday 10th February (UK Standard Delivery) to get this delivered in time for Valentine’s Day.

    Gemini (21st May – 21st June)

    One of the most versatile and adaptable of the zodiac signs, Geminis are super easy-going  – yet do need intellectual stimulation to prevent boredom. ‘As they love being the host and trialling out new things, a cocktail recipe book or a murder mystery party kit would make the perfect stimulating present for the ever-curious Gemini,’ says Rob.

    Murder Mystery on The Train Kit – Amazon | £34.99
    There’s been a murder aboard the European Belle – but whodunnit? This is the most perfect pressie for a big Galentine’s night in – gather your gal pals and prepare for a night of lots of fun as you sharpen up your detective skills. (Suitable for 5-13 players.)

    Cancer (22nd June – 22nd July)

    Sentimental, emotional and nostalgic, a Cancer’s favourite holiday is Galentine’s Day, of course, as it’s the perfect excuse to spoil and celebrate their girlfriends. ‘Showing a Cancer you truly care is a must, as they won’t appreciate any generic presents, so instead choose personalised gifts which remind them of good times,’ says Rob. Whether it’s a photo canvas to hang up at home or a personalised keyring from a hilarious night out, the sentimental Cancer will love it.

    Leo (23rd July – 22nd August)

    Extroverted, fiercely loyal and the life and soul of the party, Leos are attracted to bright, sparkles and big presents. (As a Leo, I can vouch for this.) ‘Although they can be more of a ‘bolder is better’ type of person, they are incredibly loyal and appreciate their nearest and dearest friends,’ Rob tells us. ‘A magic sequin photo cushion, with a photo from the last big night out, both satisfies the Leos desire for bling and their love of friends.’

    10 photo collage cushion – Funky Pigeon | £19.99
    This is a lovely idea and if you order it today, you’ve still got time for it to arrive on time. Add your own photos and text to this 100% cotton cushion cover for a touching, personal gift for your gal pal.

    Virgo (23rd August – 22nd September)

    Style over substance is a totally unrelatable motto for the practical Virgo, as they prefer to have everything they own to have a specific purpose, according to Printster’s Rob Crump. ‘As they are equally as reliable as they are practical, the perfect gift is something which makes their life that little bit easier. A phone case or an oyster card holder which helps them keep to their routine will be appreciated.’ 

    Blanche Devereaux iPhone Case – Red Bubble | £15.99
    Representative of gal pals everywhere, Blanche can come with you on your nights out with this durable flexible phone. It’s shock absorbent with anti-fingerprint finish and edges are semi-transparent so there’s full access to ports.

    Libra (23rd September – 23rd October)

    Extroverted, charming and incredibly friendly, Libras can chat to anyone and love to entertain. Like the Taurus, Libras are ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty, which means they have a taste for the finer things in life. ‘As social butterflies who spend most of their time surrounded by people, treat your Libra friends to a chance to unwind and decompress,’ suggests Rob. Scented candles and bath bombs will allow Libras to relax in luxury after a busy day of socialising. 

    ComfyCozy Crystal Bath Bombs Luxury Gift Set – Amazon £14.99 £11.99
    This set of six natural, vegan and organic bath bombs is just the thing for the Libra in your life.  There’s Lavender/Amethyst, Jasmine/Sapphire and Rose/Quartz in this set. Just don’t expect her to come out of the bathroom any time soon.

    Scorpio (24th October – 21st November)

    Popular and fun-loving, the social Scorpio is a trend-setter and loves to be the life and soul of the party. ‘Always the centre of attention, Scorpios are naturally ‘extra’ and love to show off their latest outlandish purchase,’ says Rob. He thinks personalised ‘in your face’ socks adorned with your Scorpio’s face or personalised wrapping paper which they’d happily have framed would make perfect gifts. 

    Photo Upload Fun Face Socks – Funky Pigeon | £14.99
    We’re not sure what to say about these silly socks but if your bestie is a Scorpio, it’s a safe bet that she’ll love ’em. They’re made with 100% polyester plus they’re sweat-wicking and infused with antibacterial agents.

    Sagittarius (22nd November – 21st December)

    The Sagittarius is thrill-seeking and always on the lookout for their next adventure. ‘As they feel happiest when amongst nature, plan a get together outside such as an adventurous hike or a trip to a botanical garden and end the celebrations with a rustic picnic,’ recommends Rob.

    Visit to Kew Gardens for two – Virgin Experience Days | £39
    What could be better than a girls’ day out on Galentine’s Day? Spend the day exploring the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew where you’ll see the world’s largest collection of living plants.

    Capricorn (22nd December – 19th January)

    Capricorns are ambitious, hard workers who always seem to have a busy and full schedule. ‘Despite being super busy, they are extremely loyal and always make time for their nearest and dearest, but their biggest flaw is not making enough time for themselves,’ says Rob from Printster. ‘With this in mind, a present that focuses on wellbeing and self-care would be much appreciated by the busy Capricorn, such as a yoga mat or a Pilates resistance band.’

    100 Yoga Poses Cards – Not On The High Street | £9.95
    We love these cute cards featuring 100 yoga poses cards – perfect for Capricorns in need of stress relief, inner-strength and a little bit of relaxation time.

    Aquarius (20th January – 18th February)

    ‘Calming, creative and incredibly kind, an Aquarius loves nothing more than spending time with their closest friends, whether that’s an intimate evening in or a busy day out exploring a new city,’ explains Rob. ‘As they are caring and sentimental, a personalised keepsake of fun times would be greatly appreciated, whether it’s a personalised fridge magnet or a heat-sensitive magic mug.’

    Magic Heart Mug – Your Surprise | £10.39
    Your favourite Aquarius will love this magic mug with heart-shaped handle. Your design only becomes visible when you fill the mug with a hot beverage. Cute!

    Pisces (19th February – 20th March)

    Sensitive souls who enjoy spending time with their closet pals, the Pisces are known for their charm and easy-going nature, according to Rob. ‘As they are sentimental and creative, presents that offer an opportunity to be creative would be greatly appreciated, such as air-dry pottery kits or terrarium building workshops, where you can focus on your creations while catching up together.’
