The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide
Today on Ask The Designer: Check out The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide to wrap up all your holiday shopping!
A few years ago I put together the Christmas In the Stars Giftionary which was a gift guide based upon your astrological signs, funny enough you can still shop the link if you are interested. Honestly, I was surprised at how many readers really loved the idea, so I decided to do a follow up gift guide last year with a gift guide For Unique People based on hobbies. However, I had a lot of readers ask for the astrological signs to go with the gift ideas. So for that reason, this year I have added those back in again for The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide

March 21-April 20 (The Ram) This sign is fiery, prodigious and dynamic. They wish to exist for their own sake, rather than to understand themselves by objective comparison. They are very spontaneous, open, and frank, with a tendency to be very willful and sometimes self centered. They believe they have a lot to offer the world and will demand others pay attention. They are practical, but self doubt is their absolute kryptonite.
April 21- May 21 (The Bull) The Taurus seeks harmony in their home life, and is very focused on surrounding themselves with many beautiful things. In fact, they are so materialistic that having possessions and security are absolutely vital to their very existence. While they are generally thought of as confrontational and stubborn, like a bull, they are actually very focused and make fantastic caregivers, teachers and parents.
May 22- June 21(The Twins) The Twins represent a quickness of thought and verbal expression. The Twins are very detail oriented people, that enjoy a lively variety in both experiences and environments. They have a tendency to change directions quickly or reverse rolls on a dime, but also require a constant life partner to flourish. They tend to be very protective, empathic, sensitive people that prefer to stay to themselves.
June 22- July 22 (The Crab) You can consider them to be the ultimate home body. They will find that personal introspection is the best means to understanding life, and they choose to do it from the safety of their own home. Highly protective, very emotional, and deeply sensitive people. This sign hides it’s softer side with a protective shell, very much like that of a crab. They focus on areas of the heart in their homes, such as the kitchen and bedroom.
July 23- August 23 (The Lion) Can you say ambition, power and self confident? These are the three main hallmarks of this regal sign. However, this prideful lion also demands enjoyment, satisfaction and harmony by all that reside in their kingdom. They are also known to be peacekeepers and will battle world injustice, oppression and darkness to a fault.
August 24- September 22 (The Virgin) This sign represents the need to have a constant systematic approach to all concerns of life and existence. They are very grounded, with high moral tendencies. This brings well ordered service and contributions to the world. They are highly selective when it comes to human experiences, they prefer straight forward gracious energies rather than social diplomatic ones.
September 23- October 22 (The Scales) Constantly strives for complete balance in life, and fair treatment of all living things. They are well appreciated by others for their charm, grace and sense of humor. They can also be considered as overly judgmental and full of indecision and uncertainty.
October 23- November 21 (The Scorpion) This sign possesses the ability to direct and control all manner of life around them. However, Scorpios tend to undergo a self inflicted, agonizing processes of self transformation within their own personalities, so are commonly labeled as secretive, treacherous, and underhanded. They are highly suspicious of anyone that processes pollyanna philosophies, undue optimism, superficial attitudes and all things that glitter.
November 22- December 21(The Archer) The world’s wanders, constantly seeking to know more about the world. They are full of optimism and refuse to get bogged down in details, which gives them the capacity to see the bigger picture. Often depicted as idealistic, honest, and very opinionated. Rarely bored they constantly seek out new ways that they can express themselves.
December 22- January 20 (The Goat) These people have been designated as the sign that can not be categorized. They are known for their love of free will and assertiveness. They are also the most accepting sign, even amidst trials, difficulty and suffering. They are always looking to to the future with drive and ambition but they rarely like change.
January 21- February 19 (The Water Barrier) Considered promoters of high ideals, valuing scientific and universal truths. They are known for their unpredictability, idiosyncratic behaviors, and powers of imagination. A wish for happiness and understanding, pervades everything that they do in their lives and you will notice that they tend to disappear when a conflict arises.
February 20- March 20 (The Fishes) These people are dreamy, spiritual and deeply emotional. You will find they are either emotionally up or emotionally down and will require constant leveling. Mainly because they are so highly empathic, and compassionate for their fellow man. They enjoy relationships, but also tend to be loners enjoying a little bit of quiet time all to themselves.
