Lead Virgo Gift Guide

Welcome to Virgo season! With birthdays from Aug. 23 to Sept. 22, people born under the sign of Virgo are hardworking, practical, reliable and highly creative.

Earthy, environmentally conscious Virgos like gifts that have the lowest possible impact on nature. They’ll appreciate something handmade, and as great lovers of DIY projects they’ll also enjoy machines and materials that support one of their crafty hobbies or that encourage them to try something new. Virgos are known as much for their active minds as for their active hands, and they love to collect all forms of media, from books to music.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up 21 practically perfect gifts for the practical Virgo in your life. For more gift-giving ideas, check out our guides to sustainable gifts as well as our series on the best practical gifts for every occasion.

Bearaby Cotton Napper
Virgoans are cerebral and often find themselves mired in stress caused by the weight of their thoughts; a weighted blanket like this one can feel like a comforting hug to the most stressed-out Virgo. We rated the Bearaby Cotton Napper as one our favorite weighted blankets because it’s stylish and it doesn’t get overly hot like other options on the market.
