Capricorns… our fishtailed friendly neighborhood goats. It’s your birthday! YAHOO!
Well, actually maybe it’s not your birthday. If you landed on this article because you have a friend, family member, acquaintance, or partner who was born sometime between December 22nd – January 19th… Then you’re in the right place!
Your Capricorn pal is quite serious in nature, they’re tenacious, independent, and alllll about the rules. They’re governed by Saturn, which deems them as The Taskmakers of the zodiac, which means they have a *slight* tendency to be all work and no play (I’m sure you’ve noticed). And because they’re a cardinal sign, they’re also natural born leaders…
Actually, now that I’m writing this out, I kind of feel like J.K. Rowling got Hermione Granger’s birthday all wrong… I mean come on, doesn’t she totally fit the description of a Capricorn?!
Well, for the sake of my own sanity and peace-of-mind, from now on I’m going to pretend like she was Capricorn (I’ll sleep better at night, ok?!)
Anyway, here’s our list of 10 gifts that are PERFECT for your disciplined, responsible, and yes slightly controlling water ram (a.k.a. the Hermione Granger of your friend group).
1. 2021 Planner
Because of course, we had to start the gift out with the thing a Capricorn would love most of all… A planner to help keep them organized, structured, and prepared.
What Reviewers Say: “I always wanted a planner, but struggled to find a small compact version (not too small). This size is perfect and not heavy. Usual planners are notebook size, but I already carry way too many notebooks for school. My minor concern is the cover sheet. The cover makes it hard to clean. For example, if you drop something on it blow it away don’t try to smudge it out. I dropped cookie crumbles on it and make it worse. I added some water to clean it and its perfect now.”
Because, literally, every astrology nerd needs a cute piece of jewelry that reps their zodiac sign.
What Reviewers Say: “Bought this for my BFF’s birthday. She loves bracelets and since she’s always complimenting me on my Alex and Ani bracelets I decided to get her one. Looks authentic despite the reviews. I know she’ll love it!!”
Because let’s be honest, they need to loosen up a little bit (but whatever you do, don’t tell them that). And how can swearing not help with that?
What Reviewers Say: “Funny Stuff! My husband wanted to give it to me for grins and giggles. And it worked!”
Because you know that total world domination is DEF on their radar. And also, everyone loves a new mug.
What Reviewers Say: “Love it! The design looks great and my mom was really impressed once she opened the packaging and saw it! Also, the shipping was fast and secure.”
Because everyone needs some proper R&R from time to time. Yes, even people who are busy planning how to take over the world… actually, they might need the ones who need it the most!
What Reviewers Say: “I got this for my bff for her birthday in January and it’s so perfect! Can’t wait to give her some self care love ❤️”
6. Laptop Stand
Because at the end of the day, all they really want is something that’s going to help them get sh*t done. It’s the ergonomic friendliness for me.
What Reviewers Say: “With my children heading into another term of learning from home due to covid, I was concerned about poor posture and neck issues arising from using a laptop for hours a day. Combined with a bluetooth keyboard and mouse, this has improved their sitting immeasurably. Highly recommended.”
Because Capricorns LOVE a good challenge. (I also spotted a couple of Harry Potter puzzles… just sayin’)
What Reviewers Say: “Was so excited to find this puzzle to do because it’s my favorite show. I had surgery and needed stuff to keep me busy. This puzzle has so many different little pictures of episodes and even some of the words.. like pivot from the episode of trying to take the couch up the stairs. As your doing it or even just looking at the box, you can picture the episodes and you start smiling. When I saw the pivot part I actually laughed. So worth the money.”
Because these worker bees will develop HIGH anxiety if their phone dies and they miss that very important work call.
What Reviewers Say: “This deserves more than 5 stars!!! It works great! If your debating whether to buy it or not like I was BUY IT! You won’t regret it. It a little bit heavy heavier than my Samsung j7 but it will charge your phone to 100%.”
And while we’re on the topic of Capricorn anxiety… we also know that they seriously cannot handle seeing smudge marks on their screen, or crumbs on their keyboard.
What Reviewers Say: “This is the second one that I have purchased because I LOVE IT! I love fact that it is small and compact enough to either sit on my desk at home or fit in my desk at work. I also enjoy the fact it is dual-sided – one side to wipe the screen and the other to brush away dust, dirt, food crumbs :D from my keyboard. It is a great buy and worth it. Not to mention it is made by a company with quality products, OXO.”
#10 Silk Pillowcase
Because literally, everyone needs one. That’s all.
What Reviewers Say: “I have always had satin pillowcases and always wanted to try silk because of the supposed benefits. I just could never find any at a reasonable price. I got this pillowcase is a treat for myself during a sale to try. I absolutely love it. It is very gentle on my hair (a huge improvement from the satin). I will be buying more of these for myself and gifts.”
Well, there you have it. 10 gifts that your favorite little water goat is sure to love… and if you don’t vibe with any of the suggestions on this list – no worries! Just keep your gift practical, thoughtful, and multi-purposeful and it’s sure to be a success!
