Virgo season is upon us. From August 23 through September 22, we celebrate the birthdays of our Virgo friends, including Beyonce (September 4), Prince Harry (September 14) and Idris Elba (September 2). They are ruled by the element of earth, and born under Mercury, which makes them grounded and practical people who tend toward perfectionism.
As you can see from that very short list of famous Virgos, they are creative and musical, but they also make good leaders (like Mother Teresa—August 26), are excellent writers and are very into health, nutrition and exercise. Virgos are also great in the kitchen, like chefs Rachel Ray (August 25), Katie Lee (September 14), and Michael Symon (September 19), to name a few.
With such a wide variety of interests and skill sets, it can be difficult to narrow down the perfect gift for the Virgos in your life. So to make the easier, we’ve compiled a list of products we think will suit even the pickiest of these fall babies to help you make the best choice in birthday gifts this month.
Here at Parade.com, we’re all about sharing products we love with our audience. When you make a purchase on an item seen on this page, we may earn a commission, however, all picks are independently chosen unless otherwise mentioned.
Best Gifts for Virgo Women
Virgo women have got it all—they’re intelligent, organized and driven women who know how to get things done. These women are also creative, so they’re rare people who can combine their brilliance from both sides of their brain—the artistic side and the logical side. Virgo women are writers, musicians and creators, and they do it all in an organized and effective manner. An earth sign, they thrive with thoughtful gifts that are related to nature.

Lavender is a soothing fragrance that is perfect for winding down after a long day and it has properties that relax the body and mind, making for a restful sleep. This shower gel is an excellent addition to any Virgo’s routine, as it leaves the skin soft and supple with just the hint of lavender. We like the scent, which isn’t overpowering but calming, and the body wash offers improved hydration for our sometimes dry skin. For the ultimate in soft skin, pair it with the Calming Body Lotion.
