17 gifts for the water sign (Cancer, Pisces, or Scorpio) in your life
It’s officially official: the holiday season is here. It’s time to shop ’til we drop, eat more food than we can digest, and try to hold it all together while 2017 slips away from us. Buying gifts during this time of year can be a fun experience…or super daunting. Thankfully, we’re here to help make your holiday shopping more of the former. We’ve rounded up 17 zodiac gifts for the water signs in your life, so you can shop for your favorite Cancer, Pisces, or Scorpio with no stress necessary.
Water signs are highly sensitive (though Scorpios tend not to show it). Sensitivity is strength, and a superpower, and a gift! But it can also be tiring and overwhelming. That’s why this gift guide is packed full of self-care essentials, entertaining gifts, and trinkets that will help your favorite water sign embrace their true colors. Plus, there’s a watery theme running throughout because water signs love the water — go figure!
If you can’t take your fave on a tropical vacation, then at least you can get them a gift that’s just as relaxing. Read on for water sign picks that are sure to make these babes feel as beautiful as Venus rising from the sea foam.
