The best Gifts for Scorpio should match this water sign's intensity. This Pluto-ruled sign is passionate and emotional, and the most loyal friend you'll ever have. Represented by the scorpion, this sign may have some rough edges at first, but underneath its shell is a loving, caring soul that will go above and beyond for the ones that it loves. Candles And Diffusers
Scorpio season, which runs from October 23 through November 21, may feel spookier than other times of the year, but don't fret — that's just because Halloween takes place during this period. Albeit enigmatic at times, this zodiac sign is known for its cunning, charm, and seductive mystique. By the way, this sign does govern the genitalia, so Scorpios tend to be quite kinky, too.
So, what's in the cards for your Scorpio loved one's gift? Our crystal ball says to grab this creative star sign stellar makeup to experiment with, like Danessa Myricks Beauty's viral Lightwork Vol. IV: Transcendence Palette or a full lip kit (including a golden set of lips) from Huda Beauty. It's also worth mentioning that sexy lingerie, vibrators, scented candles, and a few self-care items also make for great Scorpio gifts. Below, let us be your cosmic gift guides and take a look at these picks that were practically made for your favorite Scorpio.

Yes, we're aware that there are two Scorpios in the Kardashian-Jenner family, but Kris Jenner is just such a Scorpio (sorry, Kendall) that we had to put the Kylie Cosmetics Kris Pressed Powder Palette on this list. This gorgeous 12-pan eye shadow palette is filled with shimmery olive greens, matte browns, and hints of pinks inspired by the famous matriarch's signature smoky eye. In true Scorpio fashion, this palette is also shaped like Jenner's favorite drink, a martini.
Tracee Ellis Ross is both a beauty queen and a Scorpio, so it only makes sense that the Mini Conditioners Kit from her hair-care brand, Pattern Beauty, would land on this list. This gift set contains deluxe travel-sized bottles of the brand's hair-nourishing conditioners.
The Medium Conditioner provides lightweight moisture with the help of conditioning jojoba oil and aloe, while the Heavy Conditioner amps its moisturizing properties up with shea butter and safflower seed oil for coily and tight textures. Meanwhile, the Intensive Moisturizer is powered by moisture-retaining safflower, jojoba, and avocado oils and its heavily-concentrated formula can act as a deep condtioner.
Astrology-themed jewelry is always a hit, and the Kate Spade New York Mother of Pearl Zodiac Pendant Necklace is so cute that we wouldn't be surprised if your water sign friend starts wearing it daily. This elevated piece of horoscope-inspired jewelry features the astrological sign's symbol surrounded by a mother-of-pearl inlay and embellished with a few crystals. This Scorpio necklace is a great gift idea for your fashion-forward friends and family.
The Danessa Myricks Beauty Lightwork Vol. IV: Transcendence Palette is the perfect gift for any celestially creative soul since it's filled with 14 techinocolor metallic shades that can be used anywhere on the face and body. Not only are these color-shifting shades gorgeous, but they also glide on the skin like butter and blend like an absolute dream.
The Fleur du Mal Scorpio Zodiac Thong is both kinky and kitschy, which is right up a Scorpio's alley. Let them sport their astrological sign with this cheeky zodiac gift, which is made out of comfy and breathable silk that feels so light, they may forget their wearing underwear at all.
No, Machine Gun Kelly isn't a Scorpio, but the Cosmos Chrome Set from his UN/DN LAQR nail polish collection features three shades that are perfect additions to any brooding water signs' at-home mani set-up. The brand's three-piece nail polish gift box includes vibrant hues like a holographic chrome named Writer's Block, bubblegum pink known as Party Favor, and a vinyl-black shade called Depressionist.
A new moon and solar eclipse are happening simultaneously beginning October 25, which cosmically represents a fresh start for those born within the Scorpio horoscope season. So, let them celebrate these new beginnings with the Threshold Simsbury Stemless Wine Glasses. This set of four clear wine glasses are stemless to prevent spills and can be popped into the dishwasher after they're done sipping on their wine of choice.
Scorpios love vibrant colors, but that doesn't mean they don't appreciate classic nude lipsticks, either. Restock their makeup essentials supply with the Huda Beauty Empowered Lip Trio Set, which features a trifecta of mini lip products including a gold-flecked Silk Balm Illuminating Lip Balm, matte Lip Contour 2.0 Automatic Lip Pencil in shade Pinky Brown, and Power Bullet Matte Lipstick in peachy-nude shade Interview.
Tom Ford's Ombré Leather Eau de Parfum is a spicy, seductive scent that aromatically matches a Scorpio's intense vibe. Every spritz of this warm fragrance starts with a musky hint of leather that's textured with the sharp earthiness of patchouli, moss, and vetiver along with powdery, floral jasmine and sweet amber.
Fact: Scorpios love sex, so a buzzy vibrator is a great gift for one. Whether they're your partner or your best friend, your favorite Scorpio will appreciate the gift of endless orgasms with Maude's Spot Vibrator. It's the brand's first-ever internal vibrator and is made from premium-grade, body-safe silicone. As for its specs, it features five rumbly vibration patterns that they can enjoy for up to two hours on a single charge.
Not only does the name of FORVR Mood's We Not Linkin Soy Candle match a Scorpio's straight-shooter vibe, but it also smells just like the fall season, which just so happens to be Scorpio season, too. This scented candle features all the warm, sweet notes you'd associate with your favorite pumpkin spice latte, like pumpkin, cinnamon, and whipped cream, but it also has a subtle kick, thanks to the additions of spicy ginger and clove.
Ruled by warrior Mars and Pluto, the planet that represents destruction, Scorpio is intense (to say the least). Considering that a Scorpio's passionate nature can be represented by the colors in the Pat McGrath Labs Mothership V Bronze Seduction Eye Shadow Palette, this makeup pick must have been made with the fierce water sign in mind. This Allure Best of Beauty 2019 winner features 10 ultra-rich, holographic shades of reds, dark browns, and rusts.
Scorpios can worry themselves into a tizzy, and sometimes they need help calming down. Give them gifts of self-care, such as the SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Eye Complex to de-puff their eyes when they spiral into a ball of stress. This nourishing eye cream contains skin-firming peptides and brightening, antioxidant-rich blueberry extract to target fine lines and dark circles in one rich, moisturizing formula.
Kinky Scorpios will definitely put Sportsheets' Under the Bed Restraints to good use. Once installed, there's no more need for this BDSM-loving star sign to dig around and find handcuffs; they can just pull out the restraints from under the bed and be tied down, or cuff someone else. It's a gift that's a win-win.
Scorpios are known for their ability to transition easily into new scenarios and their love of travel. Gifting an entire Icelandic vacation is expensive, but you can gift them the de-puffing Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels. These skin-calming eye patches are saturated in a mix of fine line-targeting peptides and brightening antioxidant coenzyme Q10.
Scorpios love abiding by an aesthetic, so they won't put just any essential oil diffuser in their space. Vitruvi's Stone Diffuser is a sleeker, sexier choice that looks more like home décor than it does a diffusing device. It's a gorgeous fit for any home and fills any 550 square foot space with essential oil-based scents of their choosing.
Scorpios know a thing or two about sexy loungewear, so it's almost not fair to give them the seductive Short Red Satin Robe from Lovehoney. The emotional water sign needs a lot of alone time, and will appreciate such an easy way to look as sexy as they feel with a comfy satin robe.
