A Virgo gift guide, so you can please the perfectionist Priyas of the zodiac
Ask yourself one question before making any rash decisions – can my Virgo BFF actually use this?
After the roaring storm that was Leo season comes a wave of calm – meticulously organised and planned to perfection. As you seek out a Virgo gift guide to delight this earth sign, ask yourself one question before making any rash decisions – can my Virgo BFF actually use this?
Yes, they are the extremely practical star children that our mothers have been pushing us to become. And in all likelihood they are star employees too, thanks to their obsession with perfection and inherent ability to work hard.
Set in their ways, and a tad stubborn, it’s this perfectionism that makes creating a Virgo gift guide slightly daunting. Not to mention their blunt ways means you’ll pretty much know if they don’t love your meticulously picked gift.
But it is this earth sign’s attention to detail that helps them notice you’re running out of your favourite perfume, and surprise you with a replacement even before you realise you need it. Yes, they are excellent gift givers and friends. They’ll give you foolproof advice to get over that toxic ex, and even a spare key to their apartment for all the times you have to rush over for an ugly cry.
Creating a Virgo gift guide becomes more difficult because their response to “So what would you like for your birthday?” usually is “Oh, nothing.” When in fact they have a colour-coded wish list of everything they want and need, long enough to last them at least a couple of decades.
Don’t fret. We will save you the tears you’d end up shedding if you attempted to peel away the many layers of the onion bulbs that are Virgos, to finally get them to admit what they want.
Memorise this Virgo gift guide to make your BFF happy
A gift-wrapped caffeine boost to help them stay on schedule
For a Virgo to perfectly achieve everything on their to-do list (which is probably longer than your mother’s Banarasi sari), they need a lot more than will power. And as much as you’d to believe that you’re their closest friend, know that coffee is the one true pal who is with them every fast-paced step of the way.
A gift pack of four different coffee blends by Blue Tokai lets you choose the exact blend your particular Virgo friend enjoys to ensure that they don’t pull a Rachel on you, and exchange it the minute you’ve turned your back. Bluetokaicoffee.com, ₹800
Send them to their happy place to get down and dirty (literally)

Who would be happy to receive sunscreen on their birthday?
Well, a Virgo is who.
How, you may wonder. It’s the rule of the three Ps – proactiveness, practicality, and pure unadulterated absurdity.
“I can use it everyday, it does something good for me, and what do you mean by ‘why is sunscreen important’?” is going to be their response to your “huh?”
This sunscreen leaves no white cast, and is gel-based so it’s not oily.
P.S. Your Virgo friend is going to be so pleasantly surprised with your thorough research. Amazon.in, ₹635
