Whether you’ve been together a matter of days, or over a decade, this is the non-material gift your man craves this holiday season.
(Men: Curious about what she wants? Read this.)


March 21 – April 20

The gift of your wild side. Your Aries man craves adventure, excitement, and challenge. He’s full of life, and wants, most importantly, to share that life with you. This Christmas, tap into his energy by gifting him with your spicy spirit. Have fun, be playful, and show him your silly side. This will bring you even closer.


April 21 – May 21

The gift of your commitment. A Taurus is steady, consistent, and loyal. He was hesitant when he first met you, but from the get-go, he was dedicated 100% to you. This year, give him the gift of your commitment in return. Show him that you are for him, that you have his back, and that you’re not going anywhere.


May 22 – June 21

The gift of your spirit. Your Gemini man is very curious. He soaks up energy from the people around him and loves to talk, be busy, and be engaged in conversation. This Christmas, give him the gift of your spirit. Show him you’re interested in what he has to say, that you’re engaged with his thoughts, and that you’re just as entranced by the world, and your relationship, as he is.


June 22 – July 22

The gift of your trustworthiness. Cancers are very loyal people. When it comes to relationships—platonic or romantic—these men are the ones who will drop everything to be there and love with the entirety of their hearts. What your Cancer craves, above all else, is your trustworthiness. He wants to know that you’re serious about your relationship, so this Christmas prove you’re his partner, his supporter, his right-hand woman.


July 23 – August 22

The gift of motivation. Your Leo man is driven. He is someone who strives to succeed, to create purpose, and to do the right thing. Love is a huge factor in what pushes him to be a better man, so his relationship with you is very important. This Christmas, encourage and uplift him with the gift of motivation. Inspire him to be better and stand alongside as you both grow—one another, and together.


August 23 – September 22

The gift of your gentleness. Though your Virgo man might never admit it, he has a sensitive side—and this is a beautiful thing. He’s often lost in his own mind; in other words, strong in his silence. This Christmas, give him the gift of your gentleness. Match his emotions, his feeling, his heart. Show him that you value the way he lets you in and is guided by both his heart and head.


September 23 – October 22

The gift of your stability. Your Libra man loves to have things balanced—whether that’s relationships, ideas, goals, or pieces of his everyday life. What he needs, most of all, is to know that you’re going to be consistent, dedicated, and there. This Christmas, give him the gift of your stability—show him you’re here, and here to stay.


October 23 – November 21

The gift of your compassion. Your Scorpio is a feeler. Sometimes he’ll keep this part of him hidden, but most of the time he has no qualms about being vulnerable with you. This Christmas, allow him to share his most honest side. Give him the gift of your compassion; let him share the deepest parts of his heart with you.


November 22 – December 21

The gift of thrill. Your Sagittarius is an adventurous man—never still, always trying to squeeze the most out of every moment. This Christmas, honor his untamed spirit by giving him the gift of thrill. This doesn’t have to be anything crazy; this doesn’t mean you have to do something outlandish, or be someone you’re not. It simply means you’re willing to go all in—to experience the messiness and beauty of this life by his side.


December 22 – January 20

The gift of intention. A Capricorn man is one who has plans. He’s dedicated, forward-thinking, and always focused on the next goal. Because of his serious nature, what he craves is someone who can understand the intent of his heart. That’s why this Christmas, give him the gift of purpose—make plans, show love, look to the future with him. Show him that you’re just as focused and engaged in the relationship as he is.


January 21 – February 19

The gift of selflessness. This Christmas, honor your Aquarius with a selfless heart. No, this does not mean give him anything and everything, but it does mean that you willingly put him first sometimes, matching is unwavering love and dedication towards you.


February 20 – March 20

The gift of openness. Your Pisces man is deeply emotional. He is a thinker, a daydreamer, and someone who often finds himself wandering through moments and memories in his head. Because of the way his mind works, he craves a sense of understanding. This Christmas, show him that you are willing to dig deeper and uncover his layers by giving him the gift of openness. Be transparent with him, and watch has he does the same, bringing your relationship to an entirely new level. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
