16 Birthday Gifts the Capricorn in Your Life Will Love (All Genders)

Capricorns are old souls with an impeccable work ethic and dark, acid humor. They are ruled by Saturn, so they value self-discipline and they can be really harsh to themselves and others. Their life is a never-ending hard lesson, so they are well-seasoned when it comes to rolling with the punches of life. They are a Cardinal sign, so they have no problem leading the way and building the world they want to see. 

These gifts ideas are great for Capricorn Suns, whose season started just a few days ago, Capricorn Moons, who will love having these gifts in their homes and gain a sense of security from them, and Capricorn risings, who just love the aesthetic of crisp office accessories and old-fashioned things. The key to a person’s heart when it comes to gift-giving, however, is their Venus sign. This is so because Venus is all about what we love to receive and what we value. If a person’s Venus sign is Capricorn, you will definitely hit their sweet spot with one of these gifts. It’s easy to find a person’s Venus sign, just enter their birthday in a site like astro.com and look for the sign for Venus (it’s the same that’s traditionally associated with women).

1. A Record Player and Some of their Favorite LPs

Capricorn has a nostalgic side. Old-timey things make them happy. A record player, though costly, will make them very happy, especially if they adore music. It will encourage them to take the time to stop and enjoy their music in a much physical, slower way than simply playing their favorite tunes on Spotify. The LPs themselves are often beautiful pieces that can be used as decoration to showcase their love for certain bands and singers.

We have included a more costly option for record players that really caters to Capricorn’s taste for the nostalgic and a more affordable one that’s nevertheless good quality. You can also get your Capricorn an LP like Adele’s newest album, or more classic LPs like Bob Marley’s, ABBA’s, or Revolver by The Beatles. If the Capricorn in your life already has a record player, they will appreciate some new music. There’s a variety in prices to match all budgets. You can always ask them what LP they’d really like in their collection, it’s not like they’ll suspect anything with their birthday so close to the holidays.

2. A pin collar

An elegant and unique accessory for people who wear lots of button-ups, a pin collar looks memorable but professional. This is likely to become a favorite among both mascs and femmes who have a significant Capricorn placement. They are available in a range of styles and prices, and you don’t need to know their size, just their taste, so it can totally be a surprise. This is the kind of thing they’d like but probably wouldn’t get for themselves, which makes it an excellent gift. 

3. A fountain pen 

Not everyone cares for a really elegant pen, but Capricorn will seriously appreciate one. They can sign contracts, take notes, and close business deals in style. It also caters to their taste for the nostalgic. You can make it even better by getting a customized fountain pen with their names on it. They’ll cherish that forever!

4. Cold hard cash

Some Zodiac signs appreciate more sentimental gifts. Not Capricorn. If you don’t know them well enough to pick out something they’d like, they won’t be offended if you give them a nice card full of cash. Only they know how to grow their empire, so they’ll appreciate some money. A gift card to their favorite store also works, if you know which stores they frequent.

5. A Pink Opal Tumble or Some Jewelry with Pink Opal

If you want to give them a gift that can help them grow, Pink Opal is just what they need. Capricorn placements tend to struggle to make space for their emotions and rationalize them or suppress them instead. Pink Opal will help them get in touch with their emotions. It’s also a relaxing stone that can help them decompress after work.

There are many presentations of this stone, depending on the budget. If you want to splurge for a Capricorn femme in your life, we suggest a pair of gorgeous Pink Opal earrings. If you’re on a tight budget, you can get a nice tumble they can carry with them or keep in their night-table for less than five bucks. An intermediate option is a gorgeous Pink Opal tower. 

6. A Shadow Work Journal or Inner Child Journal

Contrary to popular belief, Capricorn understands the importance of self-development. Saturn has shaken stuff up for them too many times for them to be lazy about it. A Shadow Work and/or Inner Child journal will help them identify areas of growth so they aren’t blindsided by Saturn’s next intervention. We have also included a journal made by a small business (not sponsored) that allows the user to work on their Feminine polarity. This is brilliant for Capricorn, who are often saturated by their yang polarity qualities.

7. A bottle of whiskey

We don’t make the rules, we just inform them: unless they are sober, Capricorn loves some scotch. Getting them a nice bottle or a set they can enjoy is something they’ll thank you for forever.  You’ll find a link to buy a nice Globe Set to enjoy whiskey below, meanwhile this is a great bottle to get if you’re in the UK, and this is a very nice Bourbon you can buy in the US.

8. Books

Capricorns will make time for reading as long as the book adds to their self-development. If they like fiction, they’d like something like If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio and The Secret History by Donna Tartt, that’s full of intrigue and will keep them at the edge of their seat while teaching them general knowledge. The Game of Thrones saga with the power plays and complex political issues will keep them hooked. Capricorns may just be patient enough to wait for George R. R. Martin to drop the next book, too! Okay, I am exaggerating, no one is that patient.

If they’re more into non-fiction, Masters of Scale by Reid Hoffman will give them insight and tips on how to run their business, which they will certainly appreciate. How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy by Jenny Odell will be a more challenging read for Capricorn and make them question the value they place upon work and productivity.

9. Take care of their business

This is also non-sponsored but it deserved a mention. If you truly want to make a Capricorn happy, shaving off their business expenses is one of the best things you can do. Their business expenses will vary depending on their industry, but an annual pass to ClickUp, a productivity software, and Canva Pro, a simple graphic design tool, can be acquired for relatively cheap and add lots of value to their business, whatever it is.

10. A sex toy they’ll love

If you want to treat your partner to a gift you’ll both enjoy, get them a sex toy that’s about dominance. Capricorn loves to fetishize power, and BDSM and other domination games may be just up their alley. With this gift, you get to kill two birds with one stone, as you treat them to something nice and spice up the bedroom to boot!

11. An elegant Chess board

Even in their free time, Capricorn loves to be strategic. Chess can help them exercise this muscle, and, while it’s a timeless game, it has an old-timey feel that they’ll certainly appreciate. If they aren’t into chess or they already own a nice chess board, the boardgame Catan will be something they enjoy. 

12. Customized stationary or business cards

If you surprise your favorite Capricorn with a gift like this, they’ll be very happy indeed. It both helps them in their professional life and is a nice detail that will be aesthetically pleasing and show thoughtfulness. Anything that makes a Capricorn feel important is a good idea when it comes to gifts.

13. A foot stool for the office

A Capricorn’s office is a sacred space to them. They probably already have everything they need to be organized and productive, but they don’t prioritize their comfort enough. A foot stool like this one will add to their comfort and wellbeing and will make them more productive.

14. Customized wallet

This is a thoughtful gift that will keep the fruits of their labor safe. We have included two options for two distinct styles, but there are many options out there. You can even make it yourself if you know how to sew and embroider. If you want to add a nice extra touch, put a small Pyrite tumble inside! This will attract wealth and abundance into their life.

15. An antique coffee grinder

Coffee is like a Capricorn – bitter but delicious, and related to productivity. Your favorite Capricorn probably owns all sorts of things to make the best coffee ever at home, but you can surprise them with an old-timey coffee grinder like this one. It’s a useful gift that looks good and matches their aesthetic.

16. A mug that matches their sense of humor

If you want to make them laugh, get them a mug that matches their dark, acid sense of humor and pokes a little fun at their no-nonsense personality. “I am not always a bitch – just joking, go f*** yourself” pokes fun at them in a way that isn’t offensive if this sounds like something they themselves would say, and they’ll feel like you understand who they truly are. “I survived another meeting that could have been an email” is probably an important mantra to them at this point. Finally, “Sarcastic Comment Loading” recognizes their sense of humor and makes them feel seen. 

We hope this guide has been useful to you in some way. Anything that’s either super useful or nostalgic will do just fine for Capricorn. We’re sure they’ll love whatever you can get them, though. You know them better than anyone else, after all!

What’s the best present you’ve ever given a Capricorn or an Earth sign?
