They’re responsible. They’re funny. They’re determined. They’re hardworking. And if you really, really get to know them, they’ll be your most loyal friend. It’s time to show the Capricorns in your life (with birthdays from December 22 through January 19) some birthday love.
What sorts of things will they appreciate? Well, a good planner for one. A really, really, really nice candle for another. And don’t forget that just because they’re known as the most workaholic sign, it doesn’t mean they don’t want some nice sheets and pajamas just like the rest of us. Ahead, we’ve rounded up 20 gifts any Capricorn in your life will appreciate. And if you’re shopping for a true astrology lover, feel free to check out our roundup of gift ideas for them too.
Capricorns love themselves a nice new planner to start the year — and their astrological season — off fresh. We adore this Moleskine one for its simple cover, thoughtful layout of both weeks and months and sweet color options, like orange, fuchsia, green, deep red and more.
If your Capricorn is super into aesthetics, it doesn’t get much cuter than this hanging calendar that features a bright and modern illustration every month through December 2021. They can jot down their to-dos, and it even doubles as a piece of artwork for their wall.
Keep your Cap hydrated while they work (or even work out) this year with this sweet water bottle covered in encouraging statements like “This bottle is definitely half full,” “You can do it” and “You should be so proud” for their very last drop.
To help spruce up their desk, where they may spend most of their days Monday through Friday, we’re into this organizing box with everything from sticky notes, pushpins and pencils to binder clips and magnets, all adorned in a lovely floral pattern.
Realistically, who wouldn’t want a candle with noted Capricorn and perfect person Dolly Parton on it? And given that it reads “Pour yourself a cup of ambition” (from Parton’s iconic song “9 to 5”), a more apt desk candle really doesn’t exist.
Admittedly, Capricorns can get pretty stressed out while working hard too. Why not gift them this mini punching bag for their desktop, along with gloves that they can slip onto their pointer fingers so they can start swinging.
Perhaps a healthier coping mechanism is self-care, which Caps are notorious for loving (as long as they have the time) as well. In our experience, a fresh manicure can change everything. This set from Sundays, one of our favorite long-lasting polish brands, features three different nail polishes as well as the brand’s own polish remover, all wrapped up in a sweet box.
If makeup seems to be a part of their self-care ritual as well, this gift set from Fenty Beauty (who doesn’t love Rihanna?) can do the trick, with the brand’s top-rated highlighter, bronzer and luscious lip balm (it’s seriously good) all packed inside.
Upgrading their bath time can never hurt either, and we’ve fallen head over heels for this body wash from chic bath brand Nécessaire that contains niacinamide to help promote healthy skin and leaves no residue. Now you just have to choose the right scent for them: eucalyptus, sandalwood or fragrance-free.
And then, of course, there’s general skin care, which no Capricorn can live without. A tried-and-true way to their heart is gifting them products that are sure to make them ultra glowy. This set from Glossier has all the cult-favorite brand’s most cult-favorite products, including its Balm Dotcom and Milky Jelly Cleanser, sure to reinvent their daily routine.
Speaking of skin care, how about a skin care tool we think they’d love? The multitalented Esarora Ice Roller can de-puff their face, ease migraines and body aches and even help alleviate hangovers from one too many glasses of red wine.
To help de-stress and also pass the time this winter, a cute puzzle can do wonders. And at a whopping 1,000 pieces, this one that has lots of different people (and even cats) cracking open a book seems fitting for a Cap.
After their hard work is done, Capricorns naturally deserve to sleep in a little bit of luxury. Our pick for the best linen sheets of 2020, these Parachute picks are soft, are cozy and give a cool, relaxed vibe to any room. We love this terra-cotta color too.
With a deep appreciation for nice bedding and a good deal, it’s only fitting that they’ll love this editor-favorite satin pillowcase set that you can get for less than $15 in any color you’d like.
And what goes better with sheets than some lovely lingerie that they can enjoy?
Or a pair of pajamas they can really snuggle up in, like this top-rated pick from Nordstrom that has more than 1,500 reviews?
In addition to that Dolly Parton candle, we’re positive your favorite Cap would appreciate a super-luxe one as well, and especially a candle that smells exactly like a burning wood fire.
Either your Capricorn wants a pair of black leather booties with a pointed heel or their go-to pair is ready to be replaced.
Since Capricorns’ fashion senses tend to lean a little punk, why not throw them a stylish (and affordable) faux leather jacket too? It’ll keep them looking slick through their birthday season.
