Welcome to Sagittarius season! “Sagittarius, symbolized by the half-human, half-horse Archer, is basically half intellectual, half party animal,” Claire Comstock-Gay, an astrologer (and Sagittarius!) and the author of “Madame Clairevoyant’s Guide to the Stars,” says. “On the one hand, they’re motivated by a deep desire for knowledge and higher meaning in life; on the other, they’re spontaneous, adventurous and totally fun. This is a sign with a bottomless appetite for new experiences.”
With birthdays from Nov. 22 to Dec. 21, Sagittarians typically prefer spending money on experiences rather than on things, “especially if the experience involves travel,” Comstock-Gay says. “If you want to go big, splurge on a trip,” she suggests. On the other hand, Comstock-Gay points out that the Sagittarian focus on experiences over things means that “they tend to neglect their own physical surroundings a bit! Their birthday is the perfect chance for you to get them the kind of beautiful, cozy or interesting objects that they’ll love, but that they might not think to buy for themselves.”
Ahead, with the help of Comstock-Gay, we’ve picked out some incredible gifts to help you celebrate the Sagittarius in your life.
Sagittarius is a fire sign, so gifts that give a nod to their fiery side are sure to please. This hot, hot honey is absolutely delicious on pizza, cheese and crackers, popcorn and more.
Because of the Sagittarian love of travel, any travel gifts, including and especially practical ones, will be welcome. In their zest for life and eagerness to get on the road, it is all too common for a Sag to forget something mundane but deeply useful like a universal adapter. Be their hero and buy them one.
To keep the Sag in your life comfortable and well rested during their next spontaneous trip, equip them with this cotton sleep mask — our pick for best overall sleep mask. It's one of those gifts people won't know they needed until they have it.
Anyone who travels frequently knows that there will be times when your electronics lose their juice. Portable chargers solve this problem, and this particular model is outfitted with a flashlight function for even more problem-solving power!
"Fire signs, like Sag, can suffer more than most in the darkness of winter!" Comstock-Gay says. "Get your Sag a nice candle or two to keep their spark alive. (Bonus points if you skip the regular old vanilla scents and go for something interesting and unusual.)" A cute lidded candle can provide insta-cozy vibes while traveling, and can be easily packed away once it cools.
For the adventurer who has it all, gift them a unique way to keep track of their travels. This scratch map is beautifully designed and arrives printed in black and gold. Once they scratch off a country, it’s revealed in a bright color.
One way that a Sagittarius may try to satisfy their need to explore and discover is through reading. Whether it’s a nonfiction book about a country they’ve always wanted to travel to or a historical fiction book that whisks them off to another world, they can carry it all with them (wherever they go), thanks to this e-reader (which we named the best budget e-reader) and Underscored editor favorite.
Sagittariuses are known for their competitive streak, so chances are they’ve gone too hard during a hike, workout session or sports game. This Theragun massage gun delivers powerful, deep muscle treatment to help speed up recovery and relieve the body of stress and tension.
No matter how extensive their athleisure wardrobe may be, the sporty Sag in your life will love a new set to run around in.
