Gift hamper recommendations by star sign
Capricorn (22nd December 22nd – 19th January)
Consistent - Traditional - Ambitious
Being born so close to or following Christmas means choosing a gift for a Capricorn is not always easy. However, a Capricorn is also commonly quite a consistent person who likes the traditional, especially a good home-cooked meal.
For those who have high standards and an appreciation for a classic, we recommend a Gourmet Cheese and Wine Gift Box, the perfect ending to a delicious home-cooked meal.
Aquarius (20th January – 18th February)
Philosophical – Intuitive – Optimistic
An Aquarius is often quite philosophical and intuitive, as well as being quite the optimist. Those born under the sign of Aquarius like fresh food, and can be drawn to vegetarian dishes too.
If they love fresh food and perhaps a spot of cooking, then why not help them finish off their next dinner party in style, with one of our cheese hampers, such as the Cheese and Nibbles Gift, featuring cheese, crackers, nuts and complementary caramelised onion marmalade.
Explore our vegan hampers range too.
Pisces (19th February – 20th March)
Romantic - Friendly - Supportive
Pisces are romantic people. They appreciate good food…but also, most importantly, good company, especially a loved one or special someone.
For a really special treat, why not invest in a Couples Hamper, for them to share a range of special and romantically-inspired treats?
We highly recommend our Prosecco Rosé Indulgence Hamper.
Aries (21st March – 19th April)
Bold - Courageous - Brave
Those who are born under the Aries star sign are bold and courageous. To us, this is a sign that they are brave and will always want to try something different …we just bet they love a bit of spice too.
With this is mind, we have to recommend the Indian Cooking and Beer Hamper, as the perfect birthday, anniversary or ‘just because’ gift for the Aries in your life.
Taurus (20th April – 20th May)
Honest – Loyal – Stable
You are lucky to have a Taurus in your life. They are honest, loyal and stable.
So, what would be the perfect gift hamper for them?
A Taurus will appreciate the finer things in life…the quality…so we recommend an absolutely classic combination of Champagne and Truffles.
If you know they love a high-quality, refreshing glass of fizz, then explore our full range of Champagne, Prosecco and English Sparkling Wines gift selection.
Gemini (21st May – 20th June)
Outgoing – Sociable – Generous
Geminis are often outgoing. They love to socialise and also celebrate.
If there’s going to be a party, then a Gemini will be the host, and so why not gift them something that screams fun and celebration?
We have our gorgeous Summertime Sharing Hamper, featuring ready-mixed cocktail tins, as well as loads of nibbles to share.
Or for the Gemini Gin Lover, we also have our Luxury Gin Hamper, featuring a full bottle of dry gin by Berkshire Botanical.
There’s always a hamper to celebrate with at hampers.com.
Cancer (21st June – 22nd July)
Creative – Loyal – Reliable
Creativity and loyalty best define those born under the sign of Cancer.
What hamper could you choose that really shows how much they mean to you?
A friend who is a Cancerian is often part of a small and intimate group of friends and the loyalty between you is truly something special. Show them what they mean to you with a really meaningful present based on what you know they love.
If they are a bit of a beer connoisseur, then our Craft Beer Hamper is perfect. It features beer from Tap Social – an incredible social enterprise. A Cancerian will love learning about the commitment that goes into creating this beer and the ethos of this business.
Or for those who appreciate a nice bottle of wine, shared with close friends, explore our Classic Food and Wine Hamper, featuring a bottle of Royal Road Malbec from the wonderful team at the Gauchezco Vineyard – who create wine for sharing.
Leo (23rd July – 22nd August)
Confident – Extrovert – Extravagant
When your star sign symbol is a lion, it is no surprise that a Leo has a presence. They are confident and outgoing.
They adore a bit of extravagance so it has to be a luxury hamper for them.
We highly recommend the Wine, Truffle Cheese and Duck Rillette Gift, which features a whole host of exquisite food items that the Leo in your life will love trying for the first time.
Virgo (23rd August – 23rd September)
Elegant – Practical – Decisive
A Virgo is often the epitome of elegance…but also organised. They like to lead by example.
When it comes to a gift, they are likely to love something both practical and well-thought-through.
Any of our hampers that feature a willow tray or woven basket would be just perfect as a reusable gift for both storage and organisation.
With elegance and poise in mind, the Luxury Cream Tea Gift Hamper is the perfect choice.
Treat the Virgo in your life to a delicious afternoon tea, including fresh scones and clotted cream – delivered directly to their door.
Libra (23rd September – 22nd October)
Balanced – Considered – Self-Aware
A Libran loves balance – their star sign symbol is a scale after all!
They often have a sweet tooth, but would not overindulge. It’s about balance remember.
The Libran in your life will like to socialise occasionally, but also knows the importance of a bit of ‘me time’.
To help them with this busy-calm blend, why not encourage a bit of self-care with our Pamper Hamper - featuring a bottle of pink Prosecco, chocolate and macarons, plus candles and bath salts.
Scorpio (23rd October 23 – 21st November)
Passionate – Independent – Strong
Passionate and independent – a Scorpio knows what they like.
Once again, the classic combinations spring to mind, when it comes to the perfect hamper or food gift for a Scorpion.
With their strength of character, you want a gift that is equally as bold.
We recommend the Red Wine and Dark Chocolate Gift Box - a gift that oozes class, strength and a bit of desire.
Sagittarius (22nd November – 21st December)
Adventurous – Fun – Spontaneous
As we reach the months at the latter end of the year, always be prepared for an adventure when it comes to spending a birthday with a Sagittarius!
Whether it is a birthday gift or a gift for another special occasion, you’ll want something that is as fun and as spontaneous as the Sagittarian character.
For the Sagittarius who just loves to experiment, check out our Cocktail Lovers Hamper, featuring a selection box from The World of Zing Cocktail, offering a world-class mixology experience.
There are also Whisky nibs dark chocolate and savoury gourmet popcorn with extra virgin olive oil and sea salt.
Satisfy their need to be a bit different with this wonderful gift.
