There are so many things that make the holidays *seriously* the most wonderful time of the year. My favorite part? Giving gifts to the people I love the most! If you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to make that moment extra special — and no one is more deserving than your bestie. 

A super simple and creative way to add that extra special touch to your bestie’s gift is to wrap it based on their zodiac sign. It’s the perfect way to personalize your BFF’s present and make it more reflective of their amazing personality while showing that you put serious thought into this thing. 

So, keep reading for the ultimate wrapping inspo based on your bestie’s sign, all available at Hallmark. And while you’re loading up on your wrapping must-haves, peep around… they’ve got ornaments, cute gifts, and the best holiday cards, too. Let’s look to the stars, shall we?

Aries: DIY a bold Patchwork Pattern.

Their bold personality lights up any room they walk into. They love to be the center of attention, so make sure their gift is, too! Cut up some of your brightest, most vibrant holiday wrapping paper (or use leftover scraps for a more sustainable approach), and piece it together to create a totally unique patchwork pattern. From simple squares to organic shapes, there are endless ways to make your wrapping look as bold as your Aries recipient.

Taurus: Create Mini Gift Pockets.

No one loves luxury like Taurus — and nothing says luxury like showering them with tons of little gifts they can pamper themselves with. Whether they’re filled with high-quality chocolates or travel-sized perfume bottles, DIY treat pouches are the perfect way to wrap up small presents. Bonus points if you arrange them in nesting plates filled with seasonal potpourri for an extra luxe presentation.

Gemini: Add a Playful Touch.

Want to give a nod to your BFF’s playful, vibrant personality? First, wrap your gift in your fave festive paper. Then, adorn it with pom poms of all shapes, sizes, and styles! The fun, quirky design is sure to be a conversation starter — which is perfect for any chatty Gemini.

Cancer: Lean Into the Sentimental Vibes.

It’s no secret that Cancers feel all the feels. They’re thoughtful and sentimental — and they deserve a gift that reflects their caring personality. When you’re wrapping up a gift for the crab on your list, choose a fabric wrap that’s equal parts cozy and nostalgic. They can even save it after they’ve opened their gift to help keep the sweet memory alive!

Leo: Give Them a Show-stopping Gift Tower.

This is their moment, so some “main character energy” wrapping is a must — and a beautifully wrapped gift tower is sure to be the star of any holiday gift exchange. Choose a few items you know they’ll love, and wrap them separately using different (but coordinating!) wrapping paper. Then, tie it all together with a festive ribbon and add a fun topper like pom poms or a giant bow. 

Virgo: Keep It Simple.

They’re logical. They’re practical. They just want to open the darn gift — no fuss required. Keep it simple with this low-key, striped wrapping paper. So, take a cue from practical Virgo by brushing up on your wrapping skills before you dive in with this helpful tutorial from Hallmark!

Libra: Appeal to Their Love of Beauty.

If there’s one sign that loves an aesthetic, it’s Libra. So, give a nod to their appreciation for all things stunning by adding a gorgeous tissue paper flower to their gift. It’s a simple yet elegant touch that will make their gift feel like artwork.

Scorpio: Make It Mysterious.

A Scorpio’s mystery is part of what makes them amazing. Add a touch of it to your wrapping with a simple red box. They’ll be *so* excited to find out what’s inside. For extra drama, plan a whole gift scavenger hunt complete with printable clues to help them track down their mysterious gift. 

Sagittarius: Add a Nature-Inspired Touch.

Saggitarians are always up for adventure. Honor their inner explorer with this nature-inspired wrapping paper that represents their adventurous spirit! Then, amp up the natural vibes by adding an origami-inspired folded leaf attachment to their gift. This step-by-step guide shows you exactly how to do it!

Capricorn: Get Creative With Your Cash Gift.

Disciplined and realistic, no matter where your Capricorn bestie is in life, it always seems like they have it together. They’re especially good at all things money, so if you’re not sure what to give them, cash is *always* appreciated. Also, did you know there are plenty of ways to get creative with how you give cash as a gift? I especially love this gift bag money pull — it takes a simple present and makes it so much more exciting!

Aquarius: Make It Sustainable.

“Humanitarian” might as well be Aquarius’ middle name. Show your appreciation for their dedication to making the world a better place with this cute, eco-friendly (and reusable!) wrapping paper. Not sure how to use fabric gift wrap? Check out Hallmark’s step-by-step guide for everything you need to know.

Pisces: Match Their Creativity.

Pisces is known to be one of the most artistic signs of the zodiac. So, when you’re wrapping up their gift, don’t be afraid to get creative! There are near-endless ways to add a unique touch to your gift wrapping… like this DIY monogrammed trim that’s equal parts creative and personalized!
