Capricorn is represented by the goat, and that doesn’t feel like coincidence: Caps aim to be the Greatest of All Time (GOAT) in absolutely everything they do. Driven, highly, successful, and deeply pragmatic, they’re bound to reject fussy, frilly presents. And since now is their season in the sun (Capricorns are born between December 21 and January 20), knowing their ideals is important. When buying gifts for a Capricorn, keep a “time is money” mind-set by shopping for things that are sensible enough to use every day, are high quality, and, if you can swing it, have a known (and sought-after) label.
“Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the responsible one, the taskmaster, the one who’s father time, basically,” says Alex Caiola, psychic, astrologer, and founder of spiritual wellness platform High Priestess of Brooklyn. “So what they really appreciate are timeless things. [Think] classic jewelry, everyday cashmere, a great-fitting T-shirt, a gift certificate, or just good old-fashioned cash.”
You can also help support the Capricorn in your life by supporting their ambitions (and oh, do they have ambitions).”They really appreciate functionality and are, of course, work-oriented and goal-oriented,” Caiola says. “So, pay attention to any goals that they’re working on.” If you want to grab something for the true GOAT of the zodiac wheel, try on these timeless picks.

At time of publish, this Everlane butter-smooth cashmere sweater is HALF off, so you can get excellence at a steal. It comes in a series of appealing colorways, but I’d vouch for the classic cream. It goes with absolutely everything and feels very Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally, especially if they want to throw on a power blazer (more on that later).

If your Capricorn hates being called a Capricorn, they’re going to eye-roll at zodiac-themed gifts—Pisces or Aquarius are the safe bet for those types of presents. For the astrologically enlightened Caps, though, I would go with a piece like this. It’s dainty and simple, with delicate little stones marking the stars in Capricorn’s constellation.

Some Caps would never dare to work anywhere but at their desk, but not all of them are making enough bank to have a home office (yet). So, get the WFH hero who’s trying to run their business in bed a husband pillow. Believe me, they’ll be happy to know you’ve got their back.
