    Mother's Day is almost here, and the zodiac has got you covered.

    1. Aries (March 21 – April 19) β™ˆ

    The symbol of Aries is a ram, and its element is fire. Aries moms are energetic and independent so forget about gifts like books or home appliances.

    The best Mother’s Day gifts for an Aries are things they can actively use and enjoy like a pair of shoes, workout equipment, a special perfume (such as NΒ°5 Eau de Parfum), a stylish handbag, concert tickets, or cosmetics. When buying jewelry, remember that diamonds are their lucky gemstones.

    Word to the wise: Aries moms love something they can show off whether that's a physical object or an experience they can share pictures of on social media!

    2. Taurus (April 20 – May 20) ♉

    The bull is the symbol of the Taurus, and their element is earth. These grounded moms are incredibly sensual, modest, and calm. They're lovers of nature and have a deep adoration for luxury.

    Some special gift ideas for a Taurus mom include luxury scarves, a pair of leather shoes, a gift card for several massage sessions, a box of delicious chocolate strawberries, or a stylish flower pot. When buying jewelry, remember that a Taurus' lucky gem is an emerald.

    Word to the wise: Taurus moms are detail oriented, so make sure the gift looks good all the way from the wrapping paper down to the bow!

    3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20) β™Š

    Geminis β€” aka the twins β€” are encompassed by the element of air. This means that they often prefer to move their hands and fingers rather than their minds.

    The best Mother’s Day gifts for Geminis include designer bags, literally any kind of shoes, a tablet or laptop, a book on how to become a writer, a blank journal with a fountain pen, or an art set. Pearls are their lucky gemstone.

    Word to the wise: Note that Geminis prefer to get a set of few small gifts rather than just one big one!

    4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22) β™‹

    Crabs symbolize this water sign, making them highly imaginative people. Cancers are ruled by the moon which makes their taste ebb and flow like the tides, so picking out the perfect gift is a delicate art.

    Antiques or handmade gifts are great choices because of their eclectic tendencies. Other great options include a personalized picture frame with a family photo, vintage coats, a cookbook, or a gift card to a candlelit restaurant (but be sure that you go to the restaurant with them). Their lucky gemstone is ruby.

    Word to the wise: Cancers are extremely sentimental, so you should focus on getting them something from the heart.

    5. Leo (July 23 – August 22) β™Œ

    These fire signs get their names because they symbolize lions. This makes them one of the most charming signs of the zodiac but can also lead to some hurt feelings if the gift isn't great.

    Leo moms would absolutely adore a night out at the theater, a professional camera, surprise plane tickets to somewhere tropical, or a beautiful necklace. Yellow sapphire will imbue them with luck, so keep that in mind while shopping for jewelry!

    Word to the wise: Leos like to feel appreciated and praised.

    6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22) ♍

    Virgos are earth signs and one of the more practical signs of the zodiac. They tend to live healthy lifestyles or at least they aspire to.

    Examples of special Mother's Day gifts for Virgo moms include gift cards for buying clothes (nowhere too fancy though), a one-year membership subscription at a gym, a kitchen tool for healthy cooking such as juicers or steamers, a Fitbit, or a book on healthy eating. Platinum helps energize Virgos, and their lucky gem is a sapphire.

    Word to the wise: Virgos do not like to receive strange gifts therefore simplicity and applicability should be a priority.

    7. Libra (September 23 – October 22) β™Ž

    Libras symbolize scales, and their element is air. Libras are generally very balanced people and will welcome any gift you offer with a smile. They value aesthetically pleasing things.

    Spoil them this Mother's Day with a high-quality chocolate box with an ornate drizzle, a gift card to a luxurious spa, a stylish hat, or a year-long subscription to a reputable fashion magazine. If you're really trying to spoil them, look out for diamonds and opal.

    Word to the wise: Libras don't talk much about what they do or don't like, so choosing a special gift for them will not be easy. Pay special attention to their personal style, and you'll get a look into their true taste.

    8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) ♏

    This water sign's symbol is a scorpion which means they can sometimes have a bit of a stinger. Scorpios are very emotional and generally like keeping their business to themselves.

    What's a good gift for Scorpio moms? Take a look at these options: a mystery or true crime book, binoculars, a bottle of massage oil, a silk blouse, or anything eclectic and mysterious really. Their lucky birthstone is topaz although beryl, amethyst, ruby, garnet, and aquamarine are also precious gems for them as well.

    Word to the wise: Do not forget to make their gift wrap extra special. Scorpios love the fun and mystery of unwrapping several layers!

    9. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) ♐

    The symbol of the Sagittarius is an archer, and their element is fire. Sagittarius moms are adventurous; they love sports and nature.

    For Mother's Day, get any Sagittarius mom new athletic shoes, train tickets to somewhere they've never been before, a ticket to see their favorite sports team play, or a photo book on traveling. Turquoise will bring them luck and joy.

    Word to the wise: If you know how to sew, make them a handmade gift.

    10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19) β™‘

    The symbol of this earth sign is the mythical sea goat. They can sometimes seem very stoic, but they're just quiet on the outside. Inside, their minds are always turning!

    Get your Capricorn mom a high-quality leather handbag, a best-selling book, a gift card for a massage salon to work out some of their extra tension, or a biography of a person they are interested in. Even better, pack up the tent and take your Capricorn mother out for a camp trip getaway. Look up at the stars and talk about the universe. Their lucky birthstone is colorful agate, so if your Capricorn mom likes jewelry, keep an eye out for that.

    Word to the wise: You should consider the strange combination of thrill and logic as two important elements when buying a gift for a Capricorn.

    11. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) β™’

    The symbol for an Aquarius is water-bearer, and their element is air. You should buy a very unique gift for ab Aquarius, because they are free spirited and like to live their lives outside of the box.

    Consider getting your Aquarius mom something high-tech, a gift card for acupuncture, yoga equipment, a subscription to a meditation app, a science fiction novel, concert tickets, or even donate to a charity in their name. For those looking for jewelry options, sapphires bring them a deep sense of protection.

    Word to the wise: Aquarius moms love daffodil flowers, so consider getting a fresh bouquet to go along with that perfect gift.

    12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20) β™“

    The symbol of Pisces is a fish, and their element is β€” you guessed it β€” water! They appreciate all gifts: big or small, handmade or store bought. It's hard to go wrong!

    Get her a romantic novel, a record player, a satin shawl, a dream-interpretation book, a membership card to an art museum, or even take her to go get her tarot cards read. For the Pisces moms who love shiny things, aquamarine will make them feel at peace.

    Word to the wise: Think about how sentimental your Pisces mom is when buying them a gift. Sometimes the best gift isn't the one you buy but the one from your heart.
