  • Aries (Mar. 21–Apr. 19)

    If your guy was born under the fire sign, Aries (ruled by warrior planet Mars), he's undoubtedly a bit competitive -- and probably has an inclination toward all things athletic. That said, he'd probably love tickets to a big game between his fave team and their biggest rivals. Or perhaps a snazzy fitness tracking gadget -- like this FitBit Surge ($249.95, fitbit.com), which tracks GPS, continuous heart rate, all-day activity stats, and sleep. That way, he can compare his fitness accomplishments to yours or his buddies'.

  • Taurus (Apr. 20–May 20)

    Ruled by romantic and beauty-loving Venus, your Taurus man would probably dig a piece of art you could hang in your home or a wonderful new book he could curl up with on the couch. Taureans are also known for being fans of all things sensual, so a gift certificate for a massage may be just right!

  • Gemini (May 21–June 20)

    Air sign Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of travel and communication, so anything that will dovetail nicely with your man's love of either of those things will do the trick! For instance, you might present him with travel plans -- if even for a short weekend getaway -- or a high-tech gadget, like the new Kindle Touchscreen E-Reader ($79, amazon.com), for consuming plenty of useful information!

  • Cancer (June 21–July 22)

    Ruled by the maternal moon, your Cancer man probably enjoys home life and may be quite talented in the kitchen, so consider gifting him with a cooking lesson. (You can go together -- on Valentine's Day, perhaps!) Or something he can use in the kitchen -- like a new set of knives, or a cast iron or grill pan (like this Williams-Sonoma Professional Nonstick Grill Pan, $99, williams-sonoma.com) -- would be well-received, too!

    If he's not much for cooking, consider putting together a scrapbook of your favorite photos together, which will undoubtedly warm his family-oriented heart.

  • Leo (July 23–Aug. 22)

    5

    Ruled by the confident sun, even more laidback Leo men have a good deal of pride and enjoy looking pulled-together and being treated like a VIP. Thus, dinner reservations at a fancy new restaurant, a beautiful designer watch, or fine leather anything (maybe a wallet like this Bosca 'Old Leather' Trifold Wallet, $96, nordstrom.com) will float your luxury-loving guy's boat.

  • Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22)

    6

    Earth sign Virgos are also ruled by communicator Mercury, and generally love to express themselves, so a leather-bound journal may be a lovely choice for your Virgo guy. They also tend to be rather health-conscious, so you might want to help fuel this passion with a juicer, like the Nutri-Ninja Pro Blender ($89.99, amazon.com).

  • Libra (Sept. 23–Oct. 22)

    7

    Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, so think in terms of what he might find aesthetically-appealing or artistic. Perhaps a luxe silk tie? If he's a music lover, tickets to see his favorite band or to go see the symphony would be perfect, too. But you'll probably never fail with a bottle of fine wine and/or wine accessory (like the Vinturi Essential Wine Aerator, $19.86, amazon.com), which will complement his natural inclination to entertain and socialize.

  • Scorpio (Oct. 23–Nov. 21)

    8

    Water sign Scorpio is ruled by the eighth house, which deals with all things related to emotional bonds and sex. So consider lighting your Scorpio man's fire by getting yourself sexy lingerie. Aromatherapy massage candles (like Jimmy Jane's famous Afterglow candle, $29, jimmyjane.com), sex toys you can enjoy together, or anything similarly risque will definitely pique his interest!

  • Sagittarius (Nov. 22–Dec. 21)

    9

    Fire sign Sag men have a special connection to the ninth house of astrology, which is associated with higher education and long-distance travel. For that reason, your archer guy would probably enjoy a foreign language course (like Rosetta Stone) or another experience that celebrates a different culture (think dining out at an exotic restaurant). He's probably also pretty athletic and outdoorsy, so a lovingly-planned day trip spent skiing, snowboarding, hiking, fishing, etc., would work, too!

  • Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19)

    10

    Earth sign Capricorn rules the tenth house, which relates to career advancement, so consider gifts that will help your guy succeed -- and look the part, too! Think of polished apparel or accessories (cuff links, a watch).

    He may also love to hit the hiking trail, so practical gear -- like a Boreas Buttermilks 55 Pack ($89.93, rei.com) -- would be a hit!

  • Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18)

    11

    Air sign Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the revolutionary planet that's associated with all things futuristic, innovative, and electric. For that reason, your guy will most likely have a penchant for all sorts of gizmos and gadgets. If he doesn't have the latest, snazziest smartphone or tablet, that's the perfect pick for a gift. Or think outside of the box and go with something kinda quirky (like him!) but high-tech, such as this Pivoting Fog Free LED Shower Mirror from Sharper Image ($39.99, sharperimage.com).

  • Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20)

    12

    Pisces rules the twelfth house of spirituality, so undoubtedly, your guy is a romantic, artistic dreamer. The best gift will help him get in touch with that creative, soulful side -- like pack of yoga classes from Groupon or a drawing pad and pencils. And of course, as a water sign, being near the waves or in any body of H2O is always therapeutic for him, so a membership to a gym that has a pool or floating sessions could be fantastic, too!
