Welcome M A J E S T I C

Truly local services are preferred by the majority of the population as you are more likely to get a better service when there’s a possibility of bumping into the trader on your High Street! And why go anywhere else when there are so many amazing businesses in your area? So welcome to the Guide, an invaluable source of connections on your doorstep. Whether you are looking for a plumber, fancy joining a musical theatre group, or want to find inspiration for a birthday present for your nearest and dearest, you’ll find it all here in this compact companion. Delivered by Royal Mail across town and rural areas in the district; in using this little book you will also be supporting local businesses - your friends and neighbours. So let’s celebrate all that’s great about your area and be vocal about local!


WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE FOR ALL THEIR MESSAGES OF SUPPORT

“We are delighted that this little wonder is currently being put together for our lovely town. Everything you need – including a calendar – in one handy little book” LOVE BRIDGNORTH

54

You know what they say — new year, new you. Keep-fit equipment; DIY tools; pampering gifts or spa-breaks are wonderful for Capricorns, as is anything that is visibly well made or high-end. A fine leather briefcase or appointment book; a good bottle of wine or a case of artisan beer will all hit the mark.

55

Birthday Ideas Think outside the box: this independent sign loves gifts that play to their individuality, spontaneity and philanthropic side; such as a donation to their favourite charity. They have a tendency to bottle up emotions, so how about an adult colouring book or music to unwind to? Aquarians, both men and women love technology so chose from a multitude of tech gadgets

56

Birthday Ideas As a general rule, anything heartfelt will make a Pisceanʼs day. Play to this signʼs love of art and mysticism. Pisces not only love being lost in their dream world, they are particularly partial to indulgence by water: scented bath oils or bubble bath or surprise with a trip away to a sea or river-side resort. Happiest with sensitive, creative and sincere gestures.

57

Appeal to the spirited side of this signʼs on-the-go lifestyle, and steer clear of practical gifts. Aries love instant gratification, physical activity and any type of competition. With more time spent outdoors, think sport or motoring equipment, tickets to events or gift certificates for dancing or boxing lessons.

58

Grounded Taurus is a practical sign with a special relationship with nature and the earth, so gifts related to these elements are sure to be a hit. With the fairer weather, May can be a very popular time for entertaining al-fresco so barbecue sets, patio lighting, outdoor seating or new gardening gloves will all be appreciated.

59

The incredible energy of Geminis drives them from one activity to another. Variety goes a long way for the sign of the twins, so several smaller items are more fun than one larger one. This sign enjoys gifts that engage the hands and fingers as well as the mind. Mix and match presents – craft items such as knitting needles, hair accessories, eau de cologne, a small diary, Gemini is delighted by all manner of curiosities.

Sentimental Cancer is all about family. This sign adores meaningful gifts — a framed family photograph or a photo album pre-loaded with pictures of loved ones, or something handmade. Look for items of home décor to improve comfort and provide a homely atmosphere such as plush pillows or soft rugs. Cookware, cookbooks, and gift certificates to kitchenware shops would all satisfy the nurturing aspect of the Cancerian.

61

Charismatic, creative and generous individuals, most Leos have expensive tastes and a great sense of style. Their choices usually border on the side of the dramatic and magnificent, but remember that, in the end, Leo just wants to feel pampered and adored. Tickets to the theatre or opera; a professional photo shoot; fine perfume or jewellery; a designer watch or bag.

62

September marks the end of summer and with autumn looming, more time spent indoors. Virgos prefer their personal spaces to be neat and well-organised, so drawer or desk organisers that come with multiple sections to store various accessories, a jewellery box or a set of designer luggage. Anything that reduces clutter and keeps spaces neat and well-organised will be welcomed by this meticulous personality.

Stylish Librans have a love of art, beauty, harmony and luxury. Great gifts for Libra: A bottle of fine wine; a box of assorted gourmet chocolate truffles; a gift certificate to a day spa or a new, hot restaurant; a gorgeous designer scarf or hat; a sentimental item such as a locket or framed photo, that signifies your love; a gift subscription to a fashion magazine.

64

Scorpios love delving into all that is hidden; in fact, giving them clues and sending them on the hunt to find their gift is even better than simply giving it to them outright. As for the item itself, play to this signʼs love of mysteries and the enigma that is Scorpio. Great gifts for your Scorpio woman would be a wrap, sunglasses or gloves – for your Scorpio man, a spy gadget or mystery novel.

December can be an unfortunate time to have a birthday, with everyoneʼs attention on the festive season. So make it extra special by tailoring your gift to this signʼs active and adventurous personality traits. Tickets to a comedy show; cooking, dancing or horseback riding lessons; a book of philosophy or a subscription to a travel magazine.
