One of my Capricorn girlfriends said most profoundly, ” I buy things to last.”
Most Capricorns shop for clothing, coats, pants, shirts, dresses etc.. that can used for many years.
I have always joked about the sign of Capricorn being the main reason why dry cleaners get so much business.
Jewelry such as earrings, bracelets, watches, and rings must be ready to also stand the test of time. No fake gold
or cubic zirconia for this sign. And it must be noticeable yet subtly enhance an outfit without demanding too much attention.
There are many wonderful stocking stuffer gifts that can be given.
I will make recommendations that soften the blow to the wallet yet warm the heart at the same time.
1.) Capricorns want to know how you feel about them, your gift will give them that impression.
A good idea would be a gift that expresses a positive feeling verbally.
A small 3X5 or 5X7 plaque with a poem that tells them what a wonderful person they are
and how good they are at the job they do, would be kept forever.
If you have taken a previous picture with the gift recipient, You can find a special frame with
a positive etching like ” friends forever” and place your picture in it as a custom stuffer.
2.) Bracelet or watch. If you are thinking about buying a piece of jewelry, a charm bracelet would be a hit
with a unique charm that fits them. Otherwise a unique stone or gem that hails a pale or subtle blue
or turquoise may be the subtle accent they are seeking. If you choose to get a watch, they will notice if you
chose something that is conservative that can be worn to work and that can last.
3) Did they tell you about a health problem?
Most Capricorn baby boomers complain of lower back pain, high blood pressure, and achy feet.
A neck pillow, a wrist blood pressure monitor , electric foot/back massager, or a gift certificate for a massage
may just be the ticket to keep them feeling great.
4) Food, I would not gift food to a Capricorn. Or if you give them food as a gift, they may have their
eye open for another gift. small kitchen onvenience items will go over better. A better ergonomic
potato peeler, a mini food chopper, a mini one cup drink blender. Stick to mini things made better
to make their life easier in the kitchen.
5) Music. you cant go wrong with music. You can customize a CD or arrange Mp3’s for their listening
enjoyment. Music may go strong with a known interest. Capricorns are well known for their eclectic
musical taste. My grand mother especially would start humming a religious hymn and end with a soft
standard. Most Capricorns prefer singers with a strong track record, IE, Manilow, Presley, Dion, Streisand,
U2, for idea starters. Or they have a genre interest such as Worship/Praise, Soft Rock, Blues.
A Capricorn can be occupied for hours on end with their favorite tunes.
6) To be kept in the pulse of things. Capricorns want to be in the know on what is current.
Subscriptions to their favorite types of news feeds and magazines are always a wanted
element. If they have a cooking interest, such as diabetic cooking, gourmet cooking or
baking, a magazine subcription will go over well. If they have a financial interest, choose magazines
that provide the besy information. Life, People, Better Homes, and for those who need the gossip
even tabloids will be much enjoyed.
It can get a bit expensive with Capricorns who ,not only a Christmas gift but also birthday gifts, close in time frame.
These inexpensive stocking stuffers can help make a good impression without breaking your budget.
