Gifting an ornament can be quite the difficult task considering that there is an ornament for, well, practically everything, everyone, and every type of home decor. Bedazzled and fragile? You bet. Humorous and irreverent? Of course. A plate of oysters, complete with cocktail sauce and lemon wedges? Yup, that exists, too.
So in a desperate attempt to narrow down a shockingly wide selection of options, we thought it would be fun to tap into celebrity astrologist Kyle Thomas’s expertise and figure out which ornaments make the most sense for each zodiac sign.
Of course, anyone can be right on the nose and purchase ornaments that relate to corresponding elements, power colors, symbols, and even ruling planets, but the more creative, personalized, and special a gift is around the holidays, the better.
“Focus on the personality traits and sense of style for each zodiac sign,” he recommends. “By choosing ornaments that mirror their hearts, desires, and perspectives on life, it will better speak to their souls.”
Keeping this advice in mind, we’ve rounded up a dozen of our top ornament picks to help steer any exasperated shopper in the right direction. We’ve also included Thomas’s shopping tips for each zodiac sign so that you can keep them in mind if astrology is this year’s theme or you simply want it to be a guide when tacking on even more holiday gifts for the lucky recipients in your life. Check out our favorites, below.
Bold, pioneering, and courageous, an Aries will enjoy something that symbolizes their “inner fire and passion for life,” says Thomas.
Modern, sleek, and a nod to Aries’s “fire from within,” this garland-filled Murano glass masterpiece strikes a harmonious balance between understated and dramatic.
Thomas recommends something “simple, but still luxurious or elegant” for sensual, determined and loyal Tauruses.
Baccarat has debuted its annual Christmas ornament featuring a gold snowflake with “Noel 2023” inscribed on the back, and it’s an instant heirloom any Taurus will appreciate.
Quick-witted and excitable Gemini will appreciate “something with words on it, especially if it has comedic value,” advises Thomas. Since Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, they often have the gift of gab and a wicked sense of humor.

Sensitive and emotional Cancer may be moved to tears if you opt for something deeply sentimental, according to Thomas.
Canadian artist Stephen Kitras’s line of recycled tree globe ornaments are meant to symbolize the deep bonds we share with those we love. A handmade trunk roots this piece of colorful art, which then spirals into leaves that represent the “friends who help define us as the individuals we are.”
Leos, who are ruled by the sun, typically love to be the center of attention. They also love to live life to its fullest, so choosing something that feels “royal” will make them feel like the stars they know they are, says Thomas.
Purple is the color of royalty, after all, but it’s the millefiori glass insert of this hand-blown ornament that takes it over the top. It's sure to stand out—just like Leos.
A Virgo is practical and hardworking, so beauty is typically found in the details. Go for something that is “simplistic and handmade,” says Thomas.
These wool felt and beaded ornaments certainly look like the result of a really good arts and crafts project. And you can personalize the stitching to make your friend, family member, or coworker feel like they were made especially for them.
As a sign ruled by Venus, Libras have a natural tendency to surround themselves with beauty and luxury, so finding something “glamorous, romantic, or especially decadent and expensive” is Thomas’s top tip.
Could this sparkly, feather-adorned woman be more fabulous? This fashionable find is sure to check all of Libra's boxes.
Intense and passionate Scorpio will expect an ornament that “symbolizes the depth of your connection,” and will appreciate a nod to an inside joke or private memory, reveals Thomas.
Preserve the memories of the holidays by slipping a handwritten note into a Bauble stocking they can hang on their tree (and reread) year after year.
A Sagittarius loves to explore the world around them, as they are constantly seeking sources of inspiration and wisdom. This should be reflected in whatever you purchase for them, suggests Thomas.
Handcrafted in the Andes by Colombian artisans with the leaves of the Jipijapa palm tree‚ these globally inspired ornaments are perfect for curious, travel-loving Sagittarius.
Disciplined and determined Capricorns appreciate items that are “highly traditional,” claims Thomas. However, since Capricorns are also very practical, you should take care to find an ornament that's beautiful and well-made so they'll be able to use it for years to come.
This lovely hand-blown glass baubles would make a wonderful addition to any classic Christmas tree.
Intellectual Aquarius will fall head over heels over a present that “ties to their hopes, dreams, or beliefs,” says Thomas.
Making a wish on a star may be cliched, but for hopeful Aquarius, this shimmering ornament is just what they need to get them through December. It shines from every angle with 307 facets and hangs on a white satin ribbon to match any holiday color scheme.
Often described as old souls, a Pisces will be delighted to receive something that has a “spiritual component or is highly creative and imaginative,” says Thomas.
Evoking a sense of charm, fantasy, and imagination, Michael Aram’s whimsical ornaments are intended to tickle the brain and allow your mind to wander.
