What you should buy your partner for Valentine's Day, based on their star sign

Valentine’s Day, unlike birthdays and Christmas, is the time of year that your partner’s attention will be solely and avidly focused on what you buy for them (if you’re buying, and, hey, you sure don’t have to).

So, if you’re doing it, do it well.

Make their Valentine’s Day gift something that they will receive and feel like you get them like no other.

Their star sign is a good guide as to what that could be.

What star sign is your partner?

  • Aries: March 21 to April 20
  • Taurus: April 21 to May 21
  • Gemini: May 22 to June 21
  • Cancer: June 22 to July 23
  • Leo: July 24 to August 23
  • Virgo: August 24 to September 23
  • Libra: September 24 to October 23
  • Scorpio: October 24 to November 22
  • Sagittarius: November 23 to December 21
  • Capricorn: December 22 to January 21
  • Aquarius: January 22 to February 19
  • Pisces: February 20 to March 20


Aries people are all-action and physically energetic, so they like to do stuff, and have experiences that challenge them, excite them, scare them a bit, even.

Lockdown has put paid to most/many of these types of things but if there is anything you can do locally, then do.

If you can prebook a rally driving experience, a white-water rafting day, a zipwire ride, or a hot air balloon ride (with no cancellation fees), then do that instead.


Taureans love food and drink. They are big indulgers, and adore high quality, top-of-the-range treats, nibbles and tipples.

Notice (or ask about) their favourite foodie bits, and create your own little treat hamper, made up of the best of the best, and they’ll love you for it.

A bonus: This takes care of date night plans too, because you can both just scoff your way through the hamper.


Geminis are boredom fiends – they need constant and fresh intellectual stimulation to satiate their busy minds.

A subscription to something like Masterclass (an online school of courses presented by celebrities and experts in all kinds of fields) will light up their eyes. They can never ever get bored with something like this. And that will make your life easier too, my friend.


Hugely sentimental, very on point when it comes to remembering stuff, and massively engaged in the past – Cancers love making memories.

Gifting them something that uses the photos and mementos of happy times you’ve enjoyed together will have them sobbing (in a good way).

You could make an album, a lovely frame for the home, a mug, a trinket box full of treasures, matching pillow cases…


All Leos love to be pampered, preened and groomed – no question about it.

Whatever you can provide for them in that department will go down well, ideally tailored to their personal style.

Maybe it’s an online colour consultation, a pre-booked (post-lockdown) spa day, massage session or hair treatment, maybe it’s a really nifty piece of home spa or hair kit, like those straighteners/clippers/weights they keep eyeing up.

Invest in helping your Leo lover look and feel good.


Virgos are ruled by Mercury, which makes them all super chatty.

Your Virgo lover is rarely spotted without their phone nearby. Find out the make and model and create a personalised phone case, or a bunch (they like variety), for them.

Maybe you base it on their favourite things, their dream landscapes, or even family photos. This personal touch will warm their heart.

Plus, they’ll think of you every time they’re on their phone, which is no bad thing.


Ruled by the goddess of love herself, Venus, all Librans appreciate the traditional trappings and gestures of chivalrous and romantic living.

Instead of flowers, though, why not push the envelope and buy them a subscription to a bouquet delivery service? Or a house plant subscription? A seasonal and hand-picked plant will arrive on their doorstep every month, reminding them how much you care.


Scorpios are into the weird, unusual and dangerous. They just are. I’m not saying that makes them scary people (well…. not all the time, anyway), but they definitely like to push the boundary and delve into the unknown.

Why not buy them a psychic reading for Valentines? This will be something unique and totally personal to them.

You could even get them one with me (hint, hint) – it’s all done via PDF and email, so distance is no object.

Most fortune tellers offer a distance service, so lockdown doesn’t stop those fortunes being told.


Sagittarians love animals and the natural world. They have an affinity with furry, scaly, and feathered creatures, and love the great outdoors.

So, lockdown is super tough.

If you can prebook, or show them your plans to, a weekend away in the future someplace breathtaking, it’ll give them something to look forward to.

If you’ve been thinking about getting a pet, maybe now is the time to make a commitment to when that plan unfolds. All of that aside, a super cute cuddly toy of their fave critter might just make them smile.


Capricorns are discerning, sophisticated creatures, and they know quality when they see it. Their innate materialism does mean they appreciate high-ticket items, so spend what you can and make it either jewellery or a designer item you know they’ve been coveting.

Capricorns love to wear the best stuff, to show the world their worth. It doesn’t make them shallow, because it’s not all they base their worth on, but it does make them expensive to shop for. Play the game and get them what you know they’ve been looking at.


Aquarians are ruled by Uranus, the planet of space travel, aerodynamics and invention.

So, some star gazing equipment (a telescope, book, binoculars) would provide them with a very lockdown-friendly hobby that is tailor-made for their sign’s interests.

Flying lessons would be fab, but that probably isn’t feasible.

A gadget of some kind would also tick the boxes, because they always have their eye on the latest, cutting-edge inventions to make their life easier or more fun.


You may have already noticed this about your partner, but Pisceans sure do love their bed.

Getting snuggly and cosy, and relaxing and chilling away from the world, in their nest, is their safe space.

Make them a deluxe bedtime set, like a hamper. The softest dressing gown or PJs, slippers, pillow spray, candles, maybe a new throw or cushion, fairy lights… whatever you know will add a special touch to their special place. They’ll love it.
