Irrespective of whether you or a loved one are headed back to school this year, Virgo season (which runs from August 22 to September 22) carries with it a certain renewed energy that is reminiscent of a new school year. Take a moment to reflect on what’s truly important to you, and check in with your goals. The levelheaded and neatly-dressed Virgo embodies all of these qualities well. It’s precisely because of this that Virgos give their most appreciated gift to enhance their everyday routines.
According to Alex Caiola, an astrologer, psychic, and founder of the spiritual wellness platform High Priestess of Brooklyn, both Gemini and Virgo are ruled by Mercury, a planet associated with communication. Virgos are motivated by rituals and routines, and strive to accomplish their goals with a level of dedication and organization often characterized by perfectionism.”
“Virgos are devoted to rituals and routines, and work diligently toward goals, with an eye toward perfection.” -Alex Caiola, astrologer
Keeping this in mind, choose an item of legitimate use rather than something showy or purely aesthetic. Even better if you choose a gift that contributes to their well-being too. Virgo rules the sixth house in astrology, which is not only the house of routines and responsibilities, but also the house of health and wellness.
Virgos are well-suited to wellness and are pragmatists, so here are 8 great gifts for them:
Organizing trays by Yamazaki Home ($36.00 for two)
It’s almost impossible to find anything that will not please a Virgo if it’s organization-oriented. Combining it with their desire to nest inside, as these chic little trays do, is a zodiac-approved win. I often combine my astrology and tarot interpretations,” explains Caiola. Hermits attract Virgos, due to their discipline and appreciation of neatness at home, according to the tarot.
Its slim profile makes it perfect for atop or inside a drawer, and its stackable tray will make the perfect landing pad for Virgo’s knickknacks.
Women’s Clifton 8 from Hoka One One for $130.00
Stylish and functional, the Hoka One One slip-on sneakers from Hoka One One are a great combination. You’re likely to see that exercise-obsessed Virgo in your life appreciates a new pair of sneakers, anyway. Hoka’s newest offering, the lastest running shoe, is both cushy and supportive yet ultra-lightweight at the same time.
Gift Box for Lunar Self-Care – $50.00
According to Caiola, Virgos tend to be attracted to plants because they provide a sense of comfort. Make your Virgo’s green thumb smile with Lunarly self-care, a box filled with selected items designed to appeal to the ritualistic nature of that month’s new moon. This month’s box will feature a singing bowl, candle, journal, and facial oil aligned with the theme of the new moon. The three other elements, which vary each month, will be aligned with positive intention-setting and self-love.
The Café Drip 10-Cup Coffee Maker With WiFi costs $ 300.00
A high-design, Wi-Fi-enabled coffee maker from Café by GE is the perfect gift for the coffee enthusiast in your life who likes their coffee to their exact specifications. Using its smart-device capabilities, it offers a voice-to-brew feature, so users can say what they want brewed and what strength, temperature, and time they want, and know it will be perfect.
The Linda Chunky Scarf Knit Kit by Wool Couture is $46.0
The beginner-friendly knitting kit from Tom Daley lets them relive their inner Tom Daley and get ready for fall with a pair of warm, chunky knits. It also includes a knitting pattern and instruction manual.
As Virgos, we are especially detail-driven and in alignment with specific goals, and knitting a scarf is no exception. Their love of crafting and attention to detail makes them a great match for project-based work, says Caiola. The craft of knitting also has a number of mental health benefits, including being a distraction from screens and giving you a boost of serotonin—which fits in perfectly with the Virgo’s focus on wellness.
Grove Collaborative Ultimate Washing Kit – $60.00
If you are looking for a gift for a Virgo, laundry products might not be the first thing that pops into your mind, but there are a few reasons why you should not overlook a laundry upgrade like this one from Grove Collaborative. A Virgo may be interested in streamlining and improving a regular ritual such as laundry, but this is also an area where small details play a crucial role in ensuring a polished result.
The set includes detergent packs, wool dryer balls, stain spray, wrinkle-release spray, and cotton laundry bags for a fresh, static-free laundry experience. Additionally, it’s all eco-friendly and made with plant-based ingredients, which the Earth-conscious Virgo will appreciate.
Subscription to Skillshare (1 month) – $32.00
Virgos, whose intellect-driven mindset leads them to engage in classroom learning as well, enjoy learning a new skill that requires regular effort to master. Give them a Skillshare subscription for a month, which gives them access to a wide variety of courses on topics ranging from graphic design to sewing to business analysis.
Because Virgo is a mutable sign, they may change gears frequently, taking advantage of a few different workshops to maximize their subscription-but it’s also likely they’ll focus on topics related to self-care and wellness. (Virgos, take note: Jonathan Van Ness’ new offerings on the platform include calming drawing exercises, creative collage, and meditation.)
Taking Control of Anxiety – $38.00
Virgos can be witty neurotic, but can develop anxiety when they see roadblocks along the way, says Caiola. Virgos looking to avoid getting bogged down in the details might find this psychologist-created, now Instagram-popular journal helpful.
Methodology is based on cognitive behavioral therapy, with guided entries designed to highlight negative thought patterns and cultivate a greater sense of self-awareness over time — which supports the ever-evolving nature of a mutable sign like Virgo.
