Aries (March 21 to April 19)
"They are the first sign of the Zodiac so they like new, innovative gifts," the AstroTwins told us. "Aries always like to be the first one to try things — whether that's shopping indie labels, up-and-coming artists, or new tech gadgets. We're thinking of Piera [Gelardi], she's an Aries." For those who know Refinery29's executive creative director, this is an astute observation, indeed.

"Aries are also a fire sign and love anything red since that's their color. In fact, they like color in anything they get." Are you writing this down?

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
"Bulls are the luxury lover of the Zodiac, but in an elegant and understated way," say the AstroTwins. "They're not super flashy, but they like products that are built to last." Think quality over quantity here. They add that "something from a heritage label" will make a great choice.

That's not all: "Their whole body is like a nest, and they rule by their sense of smell," the sisters highlighted. So, a nice kitchen gadget, great sheet set, or high-end bath product, like scented candles, are also items you'll want to consider.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
The AstroTwins note that "Geminis are the communicators of the zodiac," but that they can have short attention spans at times. That said, "They love listening to music, and anything that's a mobile gadget is a safe bet to shop this season — maybe an e-reader or pair headphones to tune into to podcasts or music on-the-go."

"They also rule the hands and wrists, so they love stacking rings, bracelets, and overall unique accessories."

Maybe your Gemini is a bit of a jewelry aficionado. In that case, shopping lesser-known designers and labels will serve as both a great gift and an avenue for discovery.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
Cancer is the definition of lazy-girl personified. "They're the cozy, nurturing homebodies," the AstroTwins assert. "They really value their time with close friends, so home-entertaining presents are ideal for them." In layman's terms: Really nice pillows, awesome slippers, and anything else that'll make Cancer's home even more enjoyable are the way to go.

"They're also very feminine, at times, when it comes to clothing." If you're shopping wares, be sure the ones you choose feature ladylike accents and silhouettes like lace and ruffled hems, respectively.

Leo (July 23 to August 22)
"Leo's are like the girly, fashion show-ponies of the Zodiac. They like stuff that sparkles," the twins say. "They are also very much about self-expression and individuality, so something personalized with their name or their initials is perfect."

The sign is known for its outgoing nature and charisma, after all. Why not prep them for the New Year with glitter and metallic accessories to help them shine even brighter?

Virgo (August 23 to September 22)
This sign is one you can usually spot simply by looking at their desk space: "They're the organizers of the zodiac." They're also often fairly health-oriented (and sometimes uptight), according to the AstroTwins.

"They're the kinds of people who like to measure things and value efficiency. They also love color and staying healthy during the winter." A great blender for smoothies or roasting pan for vegetables are ideal kitchen items to shop. Yoga mats and fitness gear will also tap into their live-well energies.

Libra (September 23 to October 22)
Here's Libra in a nutshell: "They're decadent and romantic; they're into art, beauty, socializing, and music," offers the duo. Which is to say that "a great coffee-table or art book, high-end clothing or perfume, box of chocolates, and anything that makes them feel a bit more decadent is great."

29 of 48
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)
"Scorpio has a reputation as a sex symbol, so anything that has a little bit of a naughty appeal would be good" — matching lingerie, anyone? They're kind of a mysterious sign, too, and they like to dress in black. "Something that feels a little punk-rock would be appreciated. Or, a great pair of sunglasses so nobody can look into their eyes and know what's going on," the AstroTwins suggest.

Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
If you know someone with more frequent-flyer miles than any one person should claim for themselves, there's a good chance they're a Sagittarius. "Sagittarius are travelers so they'll appreciate anything that's portable and easy to take with them on the go," say the twins. Travel sets, passport cases, and bluetooth speakers are a fine start. But, don't forget "something that makes the journey comfortable, like a pair of shoes that are as stylish as they are supportive. They like to be on the move a lot."

Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)
"They're the executives and professionals of the Zodiac. And, they have an ambitious side and they like to have a sense of prestige about them." Knowing this, a business-card holder or something practical like a leather laptop case is right on target.

"They are also a sporty sign," the twins elaborate. "If they are the athletic type, get them snowboarding gear or a ski pass." They'll likely use your present all winter long.

Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
"They're very bohemian, popular, and they enjoy experiences that they can share with other people." The AstroTwins note that they may also have a predilection for fashion and decor that is just a touch futuristic and progressive. "They're into the unusual and items that feel one-of-a-kind or funky." Some food for thought, for sure.

To satiate their outgoing side, "gift certificates to restaurants" and other group activities are wins. Though, it's important to remember Aquarius also have strong humanitarian tendencies: "They really like when you donate for their favorite charity on their behalf. They're always the ones who say 'don't give me anything.'"

Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
Pisces is water sign, "so they're kind of dreamy," according to the AstroTwins. Oftentimes, the sign feel the needs to sacrifice and take on too much — be it at work or home. Honestly, who doesn't need a break around this year of year? "So, if you can shove them into a spa to really unwind, then do. Some kind of a water purification or a cool tea pot to help them stay hydrated throughout the day is equally thoughtful.
