As the leaves fall off the trees and the air turns so cold that our lungs begin to hurt, there’s a reminder in the air that the holidays we’ve all grown to love are drawing near. Holiday gift shopping is one of the most complicated things to do. Family, friends, plus ones…it’s so hard to buy something for someone you’ve become so close to. And finding the perfect gift can turn into a not-so-perfect search. So West Geauga, I’ll say Happy Holidays with a list of gifts that’s sure to make your shopping a lot easier.

Aquarius: (1/20 – 2/18) The people born under this sign are intellectual, spontaneous, and love communication. Aquarius will appreciate a thought of exoticism and just…something different. A cool light for his(her) bedroom like a lava lamp is a guaranteed success.

Pisces: (2/18 – 3/20) Pisces are incredibly intelligent and tend to like to quietly ponder his philosophies. Any Pisces is sure to appreciate a really good book to curl up with over the holidays.

Aries: (3/21 – 4/19) Aries are strong - willed and passionate about everything they do. Make sure your gift is something that’ll give him(her) a challenge, and s(he) is bound to love it. Even something as simple as a deck of cards with directions to a good card game is bound to be an achievement.

Taurus: (4/20 – 5/20) The bull is a stable creature who appreciates the priceless things in life. Taurus will appreciate a gift that will help him(her) broaden his(her) horizons. Remember the “How to” books? Any Taurus would get a kick out of learning to do something new.

Gemini: (5/21 – 6/21) You can’t go wrong picking a gift for a Gemini. The nice thing about the Twins is that any Gemini is well rounded. The last thing a Gemini is expecting is the thing a Gemini will appreciate most. If s/he is craving a new pair of pants, buy a belt; she or he will be ecstatic.

Cancer: (6/22 – 7/22) The crab is just that - a moody creature who hides behind a shell. A cancer is most likely extremely sensitive, but tacit about it. A journal would be a perfect match for the crab. You’ll provide a way to vent, and (s)he is sure to relish it.

Leo: (7/23 – 8/22) Ah, the lion. A creature who has a love for drama. Lions always feel the need to be center - stage. Let’s face it…the lion’s best friend is a mirror. So let him(her) feel that (s)he is also the center of your heart. A picture frame with a cute picture would make the lion’s holidays “picture perfect.”

Virgo: (8/23 – 9/22) Virgos are perfectionists beyond perfection. They’re stable people who need even the slightest details to be flawless. A Virgo would adore a planner or anything that would make organization just a little bit easier.

Libra: (9/23 – 10/23) Libra is the most optimistic sign of the zodiac, and the people born under this sign are often referred to as the “cheerleaders” of the sign. They tend to be silent but have an easy time going with the flow. Think of your friend’s personality and find a piece of jewelry to match.

Scorpio: (10/24 – 11/21) The scorpion is the most intriguing animal of the zodiac. The people in this category are, likewise, very interesting and mysterious. A Scorpio would love a thought-provoking movie or a good science fiction book.

Sagittarius: (11/22 – 12/21) Sagittarii are adventurous and energetic. If you’re shopping for a Sagittarius, don’t look for an object. S/he is much more likely to be thrilled about an adventure. (Think outside the box – a gift certificate to batting cages or putt-putt)

Capricorn: (12/22 – 1/19) Capricorns are known for their need for perfection. It’s easy to see why they’re so successful – they’re ALWAYS busy. With so much work, Capricorns are constantly stressed. Give this friend a reason to relax this holiday like a big blanket or a soft pillow.
