The ultimate Capricorn gift guide: 7 ways to impress the power rangers of the zodiac
Throw in some big boss energy too
Goats symbolise Capricorn for a reason. As far as constellations go, they are the Greatest Of All Time, hands down.
The sea goats of the zodiac don’t flaunt their accolades; they stay grounded and buried in their colour-coded, jam-packed Google calendar and subtly stifle you with their Big Boss Energy, which only gets amplified during their time of the year. Which has merrily descended on us earlier this week.
If you’re already overwhelmed by the ongoing festivities, giddy up, and get your workhorse mode in place to find the perfect gift for this no-nonsense tribe.
What does a Capricorn really want? Saturn babies enjoy all things beautiful, but love them only if they are loaded with functionality as well.
However, what they really desire is pure world domination. Since you can’t buy that on Myntra or Flipkart end-of-season sale, bookmark the next best thing: our Capricorn gift guide to scale up to their Everest-high expectations. It’s loaded with self-care, healthy competition and much-needed desk multitaskers.
You’ll earn those extra brownie points from your favourite Capricorn, if only you trust us like a Capricorn trusts its guts.
The Capricorn gift guide to impress the big bosses of the zodiac
A multitasking mist as hardworking as them
The Capricorn gift guide is incomplete without beautiful overachievers.
Your goat friend is a multi-hyphenate: a clever and witty overachiever who has cracked the secret to work-life balance. And they love to surround themselves with similar focused energy.
This Marks & Spencer’s Rose – 3 in 1 spray – indulges the mighty Cap, her linen as well as the room. She will love this multitasking mist that reminds her to stop and smell the roses.

A board game to tickle that competitive bone
What’s aam janta’s weekend plan? Netflix and chill. But, Capricorns have no chill, because even in their free time, they’re busy getting a head start towards the week. But there is one way to derail their train of thought — tease their competitive spirit with some heavy-duty board games, and they will indulge you. And celebrate you if you manage to defeat them.
Because well, they know, they’re going to win big the next round. And the only board game to match the Capricorn’s determination is the ever-so-hectic Settlers of Catan. Watch them gloat as they trade their way to building their own empire.
A desk buddy to root for her
They never run out of leaves, because they rarely take any. Capricorns, whether they are team leaders or the youngest intern, spend an awful lot of hours at work. While they are busy up-skilling their resume, help them upgrade the green quotient of their desk with these adorable Nursery Live ceramic planters, and trust them to find the right flora for them.
Be prepared to get detailed data on pet-safe, low-light and air-purifying plants before the actual desk makeover takes place.

A face massage tool to relieve the day’s stress
The most hardworking sign of the zodiac often feels overworked, whether they show it or not. Add Soultree’s Kansa Facial Massager tool to their skincare arsenal, and watch them glow. India’s answer to the jade roller and Gua Sha stone, this Ayurveda-approved face massage tool reduces wrinkles, pigmentation and unlocks radiance.
Help them roll away the stress of the day with this skincare buddy.

An accessory that vibes with their Big Boss Energy
Some people ask for surprise parties, some silently wish for them, and disciplined Capricorns detest them with all their might. They get a kick out of staying on top of their to-do list, will have a backup WIFI booster for their main WIFI booster, and never like to run out of energy or power.
So you can only imagine the wrath a dying phone battery can evoke in a hardworking goat’s life. Gift them Ikea’s Åskstorm, the 3-in-1 USB charger to get all their gadgets up and running all day long. No dying battery surprises means half their tech anxiety is taken care of.
An encyclopaedia of all things strange to add some toilet humour
For the uninitiated, Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader is basically Reader’s Digest on laxatives. First published in 1987, each edition is packed with bizarre essays on world events, pop culture, history, sports and so on, quiz, crosswords, puzzles and anything that releases pressure (no pun intended) and nerves.
The 33rd edition is no different. From hilarious Twitter rants to obnoxious essays on pets who ran for office and brain teasers, Uncle John has a cure for everybody’s boredom. Add some laughs to your favourite Capricorn’s morning routine, and their teammates and friends will thank you too.
A statement piece for the boss lady
They love the finer things in life, but only stuff that endures the test of time. They won’t sell their kidneys to buy the latest iPhone, but definitely eye a classic centrepiece at an auction house.
Gift the proud goats in your life this pair of handcrafted silver labradorite floral danglers from Tribe by Amrapali. Crafted in silver with an oxidised finish and studded with labradorite stones, this classy pair will add a touch of elegance to their otherwise business-like attire.
