Gift Ideas for the Scorpio in Your Life

Written by Kate Curry

Happy spooky season! Pumpkins decorate our doorsteps as well as an assortment of plastic creepy crawlies…like a scorpion perhaps? Scorpios are out and about while the veil is thin, ready to strike when least expected. You should get the drop on them and get them a gift to appease them! 

What Type of Sign is A Scorpio?

A red and black image reading 'what is a scorpio' with the info that scorpios are water signs born from october 23rd to november 21st

Born from October 23 to November 21, Scorpios are the most misunderstood sign in the zodiac. Described as intuitive, emotional, and cunning, Scorpios are attuned to their emotions and psychic goings on around them. 

Scorpios are associated with two planets! Pluto and formerly mars. Mars is the planet of war and aggression, and when you tick off a Scorpio they can show off their connection to mars quickly. Pluto is the planet that symbolizes destruction and transformation. Talk about a powerhouse

Often mistaken for a fire sign, these little scorpions are actually water signs! Water signs, which also include Cancer and Pisces, are commonly associated with:  

  • Sensitive 
  • Emotional
  • Loyal 
  • Empathetic 
  • Physic 

Sure, Scorpios can become a little aggressive and are known for their sting, but they use it as their last resort. Scorpios would much rather calculate and strategize than settle for a fight. They’d much rather use their energy on other activities! 

What Are The Characteristics of Scorpio?

Just like their symbol, Scorpios look a little scary and they can deliver a painful sting…but there’s so much more to them than that! Passionate and resourceful, these courageous little arachnids have emotions that run down deep and are chaotically intense. 

Sensual and loyal, it would be hard pressed to find a better partner than a Scorpio! These beings are known for their psychic abilities and they love being proven right! Their loyalty and love for their friends runs deep…but if you screw up, they’ll never forget. Talk about intense!

Best Gifts For A Scorpio

The Scorpio Color Palette 

  • Scarlet Red (deep, strong, vibrant reds that match their sensual and passionate energy) 
  • Mysterious Deep Purple (dark, vivid, and soothing to balance their energy) 
  • Deep Black (warm, dark, and deep to convey security and strength) 

Scorpio Birthstones

  • Aquamarine
  • Sodalite
  • Smoky Quartz

Shimmering blue, aquamarine encourages calm and communication. When a scorpio is in the throes of their anger, having some aquamarine on hand will help them sort out their emotions and communicate them to those around them effectively! 

Sodalite, the harmonizing stone, is a healing crystal that promotes the balance of energy. The calming energies given off by this crystal will help them meditate and clear their mind before they go jumping into action.

Grounding and calming, smoky quartz can cleanse the aura of even the most prickly of Scorpios. 

Alrighty, before you storm ahead to the gift guide, I have a few last minute tips for you! Scorpios love passionate, truthful, and meaningful gifts, while they dislike superficiality. Play that up - purchase or make them something useful and meaningful and your gift won’t miss the mark!
