The Virgo Edit: 10 gift ideas for your earth sign friends
It’s Virgo season (August 23rd – September 22nd) and we know how tricky it can be to find the perfect present. We’ve selected 10 very virgo-licious presents for your earth-sign friends.
For the planner Virgos, the body and soul-conscious Virgos and, of course, the Virgos who are all about the details – we have something for each of them.
So, come with us as we take you through our top 10 picks that are sure to make you a hit at their birthday soirees.
List making, party planning and getting a ‘date in the diary’ for your next catch up can be real passion projects for Virgos, so treat them to a noteworthy notebook. Or, if they prefer to delve deeper into their own star sign and expand their knowledge on astrological life and harnessing the ancient power of the zodiac, there’s the wonderful Virgo book from Bookspeed.
We all know how strong-minded Virgos can be, it’s no wonder they like to keep their mind and body healthy and active in order to power through. Whether they prefer making wholesome meals, taking some me-time or focusing on their yoga poses, we have gifts to suit every Virgo.
One of the many reasons Virgos make such good friends… is because of their attention to detail. Be it remembering the technicalities of a story you told months ago, your favourite coffee order, or noticing the specifics of your shoe choice, a Virgo always has a keen eye for the details. Whether it’s something with embroidery (like this bag) or sparkles (like this dress), these items are sure to wow detail-detective Virgos.
If you’re still not sure what to get, there’s always classic, staple pieces for those ever so fashionable friends of yours. A timeless black dress which can be dressed up or down, or some star hoop earrings to provide some celestial sparkles, both are great options for the Virgo woman with effortless style.
Failing that, who doesn’t love a beautiful bunch of flowers on their birthday? Find out more here.
