Gift Ideas for the Capricorn in Your Life

Written by Kate Curry

Happy Capricorn season! The most wonderful time of the zodiac year! Well, for our lovely capricorn friends, it’s business as usual - and they always mean business! If you’ve noticed your lovely ram has been grinding themselves to the bone, why don’t you get them a little pick me up! 

What Type of Sign is A Capricorn?

Born from December 22nd to January 19th, Capricorns are symbolized by a ram with the tail of a large fish. Capricorns are ambitious, determined, hardworking, and stubborn. 

Associated with Saturn, which is the planet of restriction. It is said that the influence of Saturn makes people responsible and hardworking, but also makes them harsh, unforgiving,and distant. If you can think of the go-getting business person from most Hallmark Holiday movies…yeah, I bet that character was a Capricorn. 

As an earth sign, Capricorns are stubborn and headstrong like their Taurus and Virgos, but they are often seen as a little colder to others than their siblings, who are pretty social.. These three earth  signs are often associated as being: : 

  • Practical 
  • Stubborn
  • Methodical 
  • Grounded
  • Detail Oriented 
  • Reliable 

Capricorn’s symbol can be a little bit unnerving at first glance, as this chimera is usually shown looking very fierce. The best description of the Capricorn I have ever found is: “It is the sign of decisions made to be protected from monsters in our minds, lives, and immediate physical surroundings. Always ready to transform into something that scares those scary things off, Capricorn speaks of each natural chain reaction of fear, where one scary thing leads to many others, rising up as defensive mechanisms that only make things worse. Immersed in their secrecy, they face the world just as they are – brave enough to never run away, but constantly afraid of their inner monsters.

What Are The Characteristics of Capricorns?

A list of Capricorn traits, written in blue text

A born leader, Capricorns are always working, planning, and keeping track of their tasks like a boss! These little rams are on top of their game At. All. Times. Have you ever seen a Capricorn fumble a project? Yeah, I thought not! 

These CEOs of the zodiac are not only on top of their own responsibilities, but are keeping their eye on the bigger picture! Capricorns aren’t looking for praise, money, or acclaim - they just love to work. It’s like they were made to rise and grind! Sure, sometimes they can be a little micro-managey and pushy, but…yeah, maybe sometimes it wouldn’t kill them to take a little break!

Best Gifts For A Capricorn

The Capricorn Color Palette 

  • Charcoal Gray (think of nicely iron suits, slates, and deep metals) 
  • Blank White (think of a blank whiteboard, ready for their plans to be scribbled across) 
  • Deep Blue (determined, strong, focused, and serious blues to match their CEO vibes)

Capricorn Birthstones

  • Garnet 
  • Agate
  • Black Tourmaline
  • Smoky Quartz 

One of the most popular stones, Garnet is a deep red stone meant to bring thoughts of a warm fire to keep your Capricorn warm during the chilly winters. It also helps attract Saturn energy, which you know all those rams love! 

A healing stone, Agate will help your Capricorn embrace their fears and struggles that they have to face internally. It also helps soothe anxious thoughts, which these work-a-holics will need if they’re working on a difficult project. 

Black Tourmaline, another healing stone, also attacks abundance and prosperity; something those Capricorns are always hunting for!  

The stone of clarity and power, Smoky Quartz can be incredibly helpful for Capricorns that find themselves stuck and needing some extra energy. This stone can help them keep on track and not let themselves get sidetracked! 

You’re almost ready to go hunting for your Capricorn’s gift! I have a few more tidbits for you that might just help you find the best gift! Capricorns love music, tradition, quality items, and most importantly, a well made list of instructional steps. They dislike laziness, confusing instructions, mess, and well…anything that stops them from their work or hobbies!
