As someone who plans his social interactions around the Co Star zodiac app, I’ve always felt that there was a sliver of truth behind horoscope readings. Since the Scorpio’s Apology Note worked out swimmingly for me, I’m inclined to give signs-based gifts another whirl.

If you’re an ardent believer of zodiac readings, it might be wise to pull out all the stops to maximise or, knock on wood, avoid your fortune. Here are some gifts*, sorted by the Chinese zodiac signs to treat yo’self with after stacking up on all the amazing ang baos this Chinese New Year.

All these products can be found on iShopChangi, which is having a huge CNY sale! Read till the end to find out more.

1. Year of the Pig: Tissot timepieces

It’s good to be a Rabbit boy/girl this year ‘cause good fortune will hit you in three different ways.

Shoulder the weight of your new responsibility by getting work bags like the Tumi backpack and the Faire Leather Co briefcase to show off your professional charm.

There’s no easy way to say this, but you will have a challenging time this year. According to various sources, some of the problems to keep an eye out for include conflicts with colleagues, financial losses, and health issues.

But as a wise friend once said, “Just take a deep breath and ask yourself if it will matter in 5 years.” To block out all that negative energy, get headphones like the Bose Soundsport Wireless Headphone and just work on yourself!

8. Year of the Horse: Makeup

So whether you’re heading out for your first or fiftieth date, look fresh by stocking up on makeup products like Urban Decay, YSL, and Estee Lauder.

9. Year of the Sheep: Electronic gadgets

The multiplier effect is wayyy too real for the Sheeps. This year, you can expect a cycle of one good thing after another. For instance, your promotion will lead to an increase in wealth. Since your luck is good, feel free to invest some of that money and keep that money wheel turning.

Once you feel like you’ve earned enough, splurge on useful electronic gadgets like the GoPro Hero 7 and MacBook Air.

Though not as bad as the Snakes, Monkeys will need quite a bit of luck this year. Thankfully, after the rain, comes the rainbow. While you may not be satisfied at work, you can look forward to a blissful relationship. Just remember to take good care of your health as your luck depends on it.

For fellow Roosters, the ball is in our court to make this year better than the last. Just take a leap of faith, open yourselves up, and you could form strong connections that’ll help you in life.

As always, the best way to be sociable is to throw a party. And no party is complete without essentials like the Bose Soundlink Revolve Bluetooth Speaker and booze.
