March 21 - April 19

If your dad is an Aries, you might have grown up believing that participation trophies were not enough: you should always give it 110%. But, looking back on it, he probably never cared if you didn’t win the gold or didn’t give it 110%. The most important thing for him was to teach you to try with all your might – and it’s quite a useful ability, isn’t it? Speaking about Father’s Day gifts, why not give him a personalized branding iron for the grill? He’s a fire sign and probably likes to put his personal stamp on everything.

April 20 - May 20

If your dad is a Taurus native, he probably just loves telling you the same story every time you call him. He’s probably the type who pins the lesson at the end of these stories. He’s a steady earthly creature who lives by a clear sense of routine and believes we can learn from any experience. Speaking about Father’s Day gifts, your father probably wants a gift that will encourage him to relax and enjoy life — and a set of ergonomic gardening tools might be just the thing.


May 21 - June 20

If your dad is a Gemini native, he probably tends to seem younger than he really is. It’s unknown if it’s due to his genuine interest in what’s fashionable today or the fact that he probably eavesdropped on you during your high school days. No question is too small to bring to your dad. He’s also an unabashed gadget-lover, so, speaking about Father’s Day gifts, why not give him a subscription to some tech magazine to keep him abreast of the latest innovations in computers and devices?


June 21 - July 22

Cancer natives make good dads. If you’re close with your father, he and your concept of home go hand in hand. His hobbies probably include cooking, gardening, and so on – anything that has something to do with making your home comfier and warmer interests him. Even a five-minute phone call with him can be comforting and heartwarming. He always asks how you are. But he is notoriously grumpy when he wakes up, so why not give him a sunrise alarm clock that gradually gets brighter and brighter as a Father’s Day gift?

July 23 - August 22

If your father is a Leo native, he was always in your corner when you were a kid – maybe a little too much. His loyalty to his loved ones can be sometimes overwhelming. But you can trust that his loyalty is coming from a sincere place. Your dad is probably a big kid at heart, so give him a fun video game as a Father’s Day gift!


August 23 - September 22

If your dad is a Virgo native, he probably doesn’t do any grand gestures and he’s certainly not loud. But he’s somehow always where you need him to be – that is probably an earth sign thing. Your dad is a thoughtful guy, so why not give him a handheld Sudoku game as a Father’s Day gift? Anything that creates comfort can make a good gift, too – give him a bathrobe or a wool blanket.


September 23 - October 23

If your dad is a Libra native, he wants to be your friend, plain and simple. He is also your parent, but he doesn’t like to play the role of the disciplinarian. He probably left matters of punishment up to your other parent: he’s as conflict-averse as any other Libra native. He’s fair, kind, and witty. He pays careful attention to his image, so why not give him a bottle of cologne as a Father’s Day gift? It would be a perfect gift for him!

October 24 - November 22

If your dad is a Scorpio native, you’re lucky. Dads born under this sign are the chillest. He’s probably so quiet and happy to be by himself that you sometimes don’t even know when he is actually in the house. Your dad just likes to do his own thing — which made you feel free to do the same. Your dad is intuitive, non-judgmental, and open-minded. Your dad probably enjoys getting to the bottom of things … especially if that thing is a bottle of wine! So give him a good bottle of wine as a Father’s Day gift – or, if he doesn’t drink alcohol, give him a nice trench coat because he probably dreams of being a private detective.


November 23 - December 21

Being raised by a Sagittarian dad probably meant having a lot of spontaneous road trips, long dinner discussions, and lots, lots of dad jokes. Your dad wanted to instill in you the same curiosity that fuels him every day. He loves to visit far-out places, so why not give him a book about traveling or a personalized leather passport holder as a Father’s Day gift?


December 22 - January 19

It doesn’t matter which goals you set for yourself – your Capricorn dad will always support you and do everything he can to help you reach them. He can be hard to read and can even sometimes seem cold when it comes to his affectations. As an earth sign, he hates getting his feet wet, so give him a windproof doorman umbrella as a Father’s Day gift.

January 20 - February 19

If your dad is an Aquarius, he probably has a pile of half-read books on the coffee table. He loves nothing more than diving into a new project – but it varies how far he gets before moving to something else. He has lots of things on his mind, and it prompts him to lose track of important stuff like keys. Get him an electronic key tracker as a Father’s Day gift!


February 20 - March 20

It’s impossible to find something that is fuzzier and comfier than a Pisces dad. He’s your shoulder to cry on. He’s never too busy to find out how you’re feeling. His sign is associated with photography, so a digital picture frame might be just the perfect gift for your dad! This sign is also famous for their desire to tune everything out, so a pair of soundproof headphones might be an answer to your dad's prayers.
