Hi all,

I'm compiling information to create an online gift-giving idea guide for holidays and occasions--according to a person's Sun sign.

Every astrology book I've ever seen has been grossly off the mark with their "recommendations" for certain Sun signs and what they'd like to receive as a gift. (For example, as a Scorpio, it irks me that they almost always recommend sex books, bondage wear, and weapons for my Sign. *insert eyeroll*)

If you'd like to participate, post your Sun sign and the types of gifts you enjoy.

Or, if you'd rather, you can Private Message me or email me. In the Subject line of your email, put Astro Gifts. In the body of the email, let me know your Sun sign and the types of gifts you love receiving for any holiday or occassion. If you know someone who's a particular sign and their personal tastes, by all means include that as well.

I'm a Libra. For me, small gifts are always best. Something simple like a book, CD, manga, set of chopsticks, stuffed animal or something practical like a new tea kettle, etc. Not sure if this makes me a weird Libra or not though.

I am a Gemini and I appreciate gifts of self. Like a phone call, going to movies/out to dinner, or just hanging out playing a game.

I'm a Libran <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> I like to receive small, thoughtful gifts. I like metal a lot, but it doesn't need to be gold or silver, I just like the heaviness (which also means that I'm less likely to lose it, as I'm absent minded!). I like anything new-agey - crystals, incense, anything that smells nice. Of course it's the thought that counts though, and I attach sentimental value to anything given to me by a loved one <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I love jewellery, especially rings, but earrings work just fine for me too. Or clothes. I am a Leo. Just call me the Queen, eh? <img src="/images/graemlins/queen.gif" alt="" />

Be kinder than you need to be. Everyone is dealing with something.

I'm a Pisces and let me guess: the astrology recommendations you've read say "alcohol" for Pisceans?


Okay, well a nice bottle of red wouldn't be rejected...

My favourite gifts are books or book vouchers. I love reading, so it is very easy to buy for me. Books, CDs, movies, anything art related, jewellery - especially an "interesting" piece, flowers - especially tulips or roses, bath goodies, perfume or incense or essential oils, something that feels soft and silky - clothing or cushions or bed linen or something for my house... so I've got something for each of the senses there, plus anything mystical or ususual - tarot cards, Tibetan singing bowl... see: easy to buy pressies for me! <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

i'm Pisces as well, and I honestly like just about anything for a gift - just as long as it is a surprise! I'd much rather receive a gift for absolutely no reaon at all, than for a "special occasion" - but I better get a gift on those days, too! <img src="/images/graemlins/devil.gif" alt="" />

Jewelry - it deosn't have to be expensive, just sparkly
Flowers - I love bright, colorful flowers
Stuffed animals - the squishier, the better
Anything romantic - perfume, crystla ornaments, art, soft sweaters, etc.

i'm so not into "practical gifts" - they almost offend me. But my husband is so terribly practical, I have to bite my lip sometimes.

Don't known if this has to do with sun signs, but on the goddess quiz, I did identify with Aphrodite - I guess she influences me quite a bit!!!
