Imaxtree

It's getting close to the most wonderful time of the year, and that means a few things: ham off the bone, festive makeup, pavlova, family time, and presents. To help you get your Christmas shopping under control, we've taken it upon ourselves to curateВ all of the best gifts for all the special people in your lives.

In true Byrdie style, today, we've looked to the stars for a little inspiration, and put together the ultimate beauty-themed gift guide, based on your or their star sign. So whether you're shopping for a fiery, future-CEO Aries type, or a celestial, dreamy Pisces, we've got you. Below, you'll find 12 gifts that are basically written in the stars. Happy shopping, and Merry Christmas.В

Aries

Aries are natural born leaders. Innovative and powerful, gift them a head-turning fragrance enclosed in a vibrant red flacon (it is their signature colour, after all). Chanel's exclusive Christmas iteration of the iconicВ No.5 scent is perfect.В

Taurus

Loyal, stubborn, and grounded, the Taurus sign is known and loved for its slow and methodical approach to all things in life. Appeal to their love of routine by gifting them an already-prepared skin regimen. Our pick isВ this one from Drunk Elephant.В

Gemini

Born communicators, Gemini's are sociable, quick-witted, and persuasive. Represented by two different personalities, they also have a tendency to transition to a more restless, sensitive side. A personalised gift that speaks to their love of written prose is well suited-blow them away with an embroidered ribbon from new Australian brand, Attacher Store.В В

Cancer

As the deep carers and feelers of the world, anything that falls in the self-care end of the beauty spectrum is a well-suited gift. AВ Meditation Kit ($69) from Venustus is the perfect accompaniment whenever they retreat into themselves.В

Virgo

Logical, practical, and always helpful, Virgo's live for organisation and tidiness. Aesop'sВ Orbit of Intention ($120) gift set will be equally appealing for its skin benefit's as the way it looks in their (highly stylised) bathroom vanity.В

Libra

Fair, likeable, and elegant, Libra's are social butterflies with a penchant for romance. Play cupid for their next date night, and gift them a crystal-infused body oil (they'll be glistening and hydrated all night long).В

Aquarian Soul Moonstone Body OIl $45Shop

Scorpio

Complicated, introspective, and exceptionally deep, a Scorpio will follow you to the ends of Earth, and never let you face life's hardships alone. Give a little back by gifting them pure luxury. D.S. & Durga scents areВ special in the true sense of the word-theВ Debaser fragrance is a hypnotic, velvet-smooth juice that will appeal to their sultry demeanor.В

Saggitarius

Sag's are always on the move, whether that's relocating to another city, or travelling the world. Energetic and optimistic, make their gyspy lifestyle a little easier withВ a beautiful cosmetics case. We love The Daily Edited.

Capricorn

Capricorn's are loved and respected for their unwavering work ethic, determination, and consistency. Gift them a multi-tasking product that appeals to their "getting shit done" approach to life. Elizabeth Arden'sВ Eight Hour CreamВ ($22) is perfect.В

Aquarius

Inventive, cool, and fiercely independent, Aquarian's are often rebellious and crave freedom. As a water sign, anything hydrating will sit well. Our pick is the Beauty Chef'sВ Holiday Glow Kit ($50). A splash of both the Glow Powder and liquid Collagen in their water will be greatly appreciated.В

Pisces

Dreamy, artistic, and prone to falling in love (hard), gift this sign L'Occitane's Lavender CollectionВ ($105). It will lull them into a peaceful sleep each night-necessary after expending so much energy empathising with others.В
