Holiday Indulgences for Your Zodiac Sign
In this season of giving, we often forget to give to ourselves. But come on, you've toughed out a long year, and you deserve to celebrate yourself! Here are a few nice ways to treat yourself, in a way that works best for your sign:
Your sign rules the head and face area--all that intense thinking can cause tension to settle into an automatic frown. How about a facial, a scalp and neck massage, or even some great highlights to brighten up your lovely features? If you really want to splurge, buy tickets to an exotic destination, where you can relax on the beach and turn off your brain...for once!
Luxury-loving Taurus rules the five senses, so treat yourself to anything that delights you, like a great meal, Egyptian cotton sheets, or a great sound system that plays music all through your house.
As the sign of the Twins, you love an activity for two. How about a couple's massage, a home game system like Wii or XBox, or tickets to an amazing concert. Geminis either loathe or love technology. If you're a gadget geek, how about a pair of cell phones enabled with video chat?
You're a sentimental soul, and you alway have a favorite "thing" that gives you comfort. Treat yourself to a sweater, a comfy pair of slippers or a slouchy bag that will become your can't-live-without-it item, kind of like Linus' blanket on Charlie Brown.
Bling bling! Anything that adds megawatt shine to your gilded life makes you happy. How about some 14-karat gold hoops, a great necklace, or a beautiful accessory (hat, scarf, handbag) that makes you feel positively regal?
You're the sign of health and fitness with discriminating tastes. Treat yourself to amazing exercise equipment, or a package of those Pilates or pole-dancing classes you've wanted to take. High-end kitchen equipment or an appliance that makes your life more efficient will please your practical, domestic sign, too.
The holidays bring out your sentimental side, and they're also the perfect excuse for you to dress up! Book a family portrait session with a great photographer, then shoo the kiddies away to take some glamorous solo shots. You're the sign of relationships, so buy a pair of tickets to the opera, or your favorite destination.
You love intimate, exclusive experiences, so how about a night in a luxury hotel, or dinner at home with a private chef? Sexy skivvies from La Perla or your favorite boudoir shop will make you feel naughty AND nice. How about burlesque lessons for some hot new techniques you can try?
On-the-go Sag loves anything that helps you multitask and move around faster. Splurge on a beautiful bag that holds your gadgets, keys, wallet, etc. or a great pair of sexy, cool and comfortable boots. As the zodiac's traveler, you always like a great piece of luggage, or plane tickets!
You're a minimalist, practical yet tasteful. Spend on an item of great, lasting quality, like flawless diamond studs, an antique rolltop desk, or really well-made shoes by your favorite designer. Your sign can be outdoorsy, so get some great sporting or camping equipment for yourself.
You're the sign of groups and technology, so any gadget that helps you stay connected to your gazillion friends is a great gift to yourself. How about an iPad or tablet, or a cell phone upgrade? You love to be around people, so tickets to a great event (maybe even for New Year's) will make for a memorable experience.
Honor your innate creativity with a present that either helps you express it (oil paint, a digital camera, dance lessons) or indulge in it (theater or ballet tickets). Pisces also rules holistic healing, so gift yourself a deep-tissue massage, acupuncture or a spa certificate. Your sign governs the feet, so you can't go wrong with a hot pair of shoes!
