Welcome to Scorpio season…enter if you dare!
Syd Robinson, Astrologer, Who Do the Stars Say You Are? “Scorpios are known for their enthusiasm, intensity, and eternal curiosity about what’s beneath the surface,” says the author of “Scorpio. These people aren’t interested in small talk and may appear somewhat reserved with others; they tend to be protective, Especially when opening up for the first time and building trust with new friends.”
Birthdays starting in October. From November 23 to November 21, these intense, moody and capricious water signs are very easy to buy. “When choosing a gift for a Scorpio loved one,” says Robinson, “I would recommend something a little mysterious. This sign tends to lean toward the supernatural, and it shouldn’t come as a surprise that they were born at the height of terror!”
Next, with Robinson’s help and Scorpio’s input in our own lives, we’ve picked out 21 gift ideas for the Scorpio in your life.

Dramatic and glamorous, Christian Louboutin Nail Polish can be used as a weapon if necessary, the perfect gift for a Scorpio! (Unless a Scorpio stabs you with a bottle, in which case you probably wouldn’t consider it the perfect gift for a Scorpio.) You can’t go wrong with any shade, but we especially love “Delicotte,” a super rich, deep berry shade .
Like their water signs Pisces and Cancer, Scorpios tend to get lost in their feelings, and journaling can help them sort through complex emotions. Unlike other water signs, however, Scorpios are less likely to accept sincere expressions of emotion, so skip those journals with inspirational messages and give the Scorpio in your life this ridiculously dark grievance journal.
This set of astrology-inspired pencils makes a great gift, or as a diary supplement, making fun of Scorpio’s dark, sociopathic side.
“Scorpios are also known to be enticing,” says Robinson, “so anything like that—scented candles, underwear, you name it—is sure to be a hit with them.” We’re obsessed with this one with removable feathers. Gorgeous pajama set at the cuffs in Scorpio’s signature black.

Scorpio seasons overlap with spooky seasons, so it’s no surprise that this zodiac sign is more likely to be a horror movie lover than others. This book is both a showcase and a guide diary for a Scorpio whose goal is to be a horror movie finisher.
