Virgo (August 23 - September 22) is an earth sign represented by the Virgin. "Virginity" in this sense is about virtuousness - a Virgo is a perfectionist and they hold themselves to a very high standard of excellence. Their attention to detail is second to none. It's not easy to pull one over on a Virgo. They are meticulously organized (even if they are the only person who understands their organization techniques) and hard working, often veering into workaholic tendencies.
At the root of it all, Virgos just want to do their very best. They are kind, generous, and resourceful but they also tend to feel responsible for everything and everyone in their lives, which can often make them extremely hard on themselves.
Practicality rules when choosing a present for a Virgo. But whatever the gift may be, make sure they know how much you appreciate them when you give it - that's all they really want.
A soft eucalyptus sheet set is the perfect practical-yet-luxurious gift for a Virgo. These ones are cool and breathable - amazing for hot sleepers - and made from sustainable fabric, which is biodegradable and compostable! What's good for the earth is good for an earth sign.
And if they really need to relax, why not give them the gift of a massage service from a local spa? Chances are, the Virgo in your life is too busy taking care of everyone else to carve out any time for themselves. Show your appreciation, and make them make time.
Virgo, like Gemini, is ruled by the communication planet, Mercury. Although those signs process information very differently, they share a curious nature and both tend to be voracious readers.
A Virgo will love a Book of the Month subscription because reading is not only a relaxing activity, but finishing a book also satisfies their desire to check things off of their "To Do" lists!
Virgos are list-making enthusiasts and secretly love to create and revise personal budgets. (One of my Virgo mother's heroes in the '90s was Suze Orman.) This planner from Papier will help them see how all the details of their monthly expenditures form the bigger picture of their future wealth. It features a full year's worth of tracking and budgeting tools as well as a few of money guru Elle Harikleia's helpful articles!
Virgos rule the digestive system, so they can often be afflicted with tummy troubles. Healthy gut flora has not only been linked to good intenstinal health, but also to cardiovascular health and better skin, too. Seed's DS-01 synbiotic is a hard-working prebiotic and probiotic in one.
On the flip side, those who rule digestion will also love any kind of food or cooking related gifts. The Always Pan from Our Place is just what the Virgo ordered: minimal and beautiful with the functionality of eight diferent pieces of cookware.
This pan features a trio of mess-savers including a super-nonstick (also nontoxic) cooking surface, a handy pour spout, and a very convenient built-in rest for the wooden spoon it comes with. Highly rated and exceptionally reviewed, this is a must.
"A place for everything and everything in its place" is a major Virgo mantra. A set of plastic drawer organizers may not seem super "gifty", but I guarantee that they'll be delighted to receive these and might even get to work sorting and organizing as soon as the giftwrap comes off! Assorted sizes make them perfect for any drawer and they come with silicone pads to stick ot the bottom to make them non-slip.
If your Virgo was not blessed with in-unit laundry, this backpack hamper might help take the strain off the chore - they'll appreciate making a must-do chore a bit less cumbersome. It has an impressive capacity and is incredibly durable with a generously-sized pocket on the outside to hold dryer sheets and stain remover sticks.
Your earth sign Virgo is likely to have a bit of a green thumb! Gardening is a wonderful pastime for them to develop - it allows them to get deep into the details of plant life, but it also teaches them that in nature, not everything turns out as perfectly as we might like. That doesn't mean it's any less beautiful, though - an important lesson for Virgos.
This well-designed folding seat comes with five helpful hand tools and a carrying case that clips perfectly underneath.
Encourage them to unwind a little (or a lot) with this intro set from fellow Virgo Cameron Diaz's wine brand, Avaline. Avaline's ethos is about offering the best wine possible while being totally transparent about their growing process and the ingredients contained in each bottle.
Made from organically-grown grapes and free of any unnecessary additives, each intro set includes a red, a white, a rosé, a sparkling, a Chardonnay, and a Cabernet. Cheers!
