Taurus season has officially arrived! Represented by the bull, taurus is the zodiac sign that begins April 20th and ends May 20th. The Taurus is known for being fairly chill, but can also be very stubborn and set in their ways. Of course, there are more attributes to the taurus sign that can be unpacked, you can also utilize these characteristics to find the perfect gift for your favorite taurus!
Whether the occasion is their birthday or just a simple host’s gift, there are plenty of options for your favorite taurus:
When shopping for gifts, it can sometimes be tempting to want to give as many things as you can in a single gift. While that is one way you can demonstrate your thoughtfulness, it is not always what the person receiving wants, which is especially true for the taurus.
Tauruses will value gifts of quality over gifts of quantity. So, skip past the trinkets and dollar section that you are drawn to and go for a single item that is of more quality and more meaningful. However, this is not to say that quality gifts have to be expensive. There are still plenty of quality gift options that are very affordable!
Beautiful Potted Plants: A plant in a nice pot is a great gift idea for any taurus! Being an earth sign, tauruses are naturally inclined towards nature and most likely already have several plants in their home. By gifting your favorite taurus a plant, it shows that you not only are paying attention to their earthly needs, but it also shows how you want their homes to be cozy and warm for them. By adding plants to any home, it will become warmer and cozier than before.
While a potted plant may not be something that you associate with quality, given how they are not always pricey, it is a gift of quality given all of the ways that tauruses are drawn to plants. Of course, it is a gift that you can splurge on if you feel so inclined to!
Picture Frames: Even though the idea itself is sometimes considered basic, it is one of the best gifts of quality. While picture frames tend to be a bit on the pricey side, you can splurge by just getting your favorite taurus a nice, quality frame! It will be a great gift that they will always be able to treasure, as tauruses tend to treasure memories they make with their loved ones.
A similar take on the picture frame gift is an art print of sorts. Of course, if you go the art print route, be sure that it is of something that your taurus friend loves like nature, a certain movie, or something along those lines. You can always go the step above and get a nice frame for the art print as well!
Weighted Blanket: Similarly to potted plants, blankets make a home feel cozier and warmer. With weighted blankets, you get the same effect of the coziness and warmness of a traditional blanket, but you also get the feeling of being grounded. As an earth sign, tauruses have a desire to be grounded. A weighted blanket can do just that, by putting weight on your body, you can relax and feel closer to the earth.
When All Else Fails: Of course, there are always back up options in the event you have to rush to get a gift. Thankfully, there are still a few gifts of quality that you can lean on when you are not able to come up with anything else. The first is a bouquet of flowers! Similarly to potted plants, flowers can bring a great sense of hominess and coziness into any space. It is another alternative to being able to bring the outdoors in. While getting a bouquet of flowers may not feel like much, it will say a lot to your favorite taurus!
The other simple alternative is to get a nice bottle of wine. Of course, you do not have to go overboard buying a super fancy bottle, but getting a nicer than usual bottle of wine can be a great gift that is still thoughtful. Just picking up a bottle of wine really does not feel like too much, but it is still a great gift of quality to your favorite taurus.
With taurus being an earth sign, many tauruses value the things that they can touch, taste, and smell. In other words, they value material things that they can engage with! Here are some top picks for material and sensory gift ideas:
Blankets and Pillows: Even though this was already touched on a bit with weighted blankets, any type of fuzzy blanket or pillow is a great way for your favorite taurus to tune into their senses - and in a cozy way, no less. It also does not have to be fuzzy in texture; any type of blanket or pillow that differs in texture can be a really great gift to stimulate the senses!
Strong Scented Candles: Scent is one of the senses that does not get used as often as other senses. So, by gifting your favorite taurus with a new candle that has a powerful, strong scent, it will allow them to tune into their sense of smell and feel a sense of validation. For tauruses, scents that have to do with nature will be their favorite. These could include floral scents, wood scents, or even fruit and vegetable scents.
Fuzzy Slippers or Socks: Fuzzy slippers or fuzzy socks can bring the fuzziness and softness of a blanket down to your favorite taurus’ feet that they will be able to enjoy throughout the day. Not only will they be able to have the warm and cozy feeling that they love, but they will also have that material and sensory feeling that they desire.
New Perfume or Room Spray: Similar to a strong scented candle, perfume is a great way to help your favorite taurus engage with their sense of smell. Perfume is a great opportunity to give a new scent that feels more personal, as they would be wearing it on their body and throughout the day.
A new room spray is another great alternative for those that may not be a fragrance wearer. Room spray is also a great alternative for candles, in the event that your favorite taurus is not able to burn candles where they are living.
Since you have found your way here, chances are you, or your favorite taurus, are a big fan of astrology. Thankfully, there are dozens of cute options for you to show this love of astrology in your gift giving!
Taurus Necklace: Jewelry is a tangible object that tauruses would be able to hold in their hands and enjoy. It is also quite a quality gift as long as you splurge a little bit. So, it will check all of the boxes for the perfect taurus gift. By adding the taurus constellation or symbol to a necklace, it will be a way of adding a piece of them into the gift you give!
Taurus Candles: Believe it or not, there are actually candles that are made with specific zodiac signs in mind. While candles are a great gift for tauruses given their sensory capacity, being able to buy a candle specific to their zodiac sign will increase the quality of it. Of course, there are also birthdate candles that have a different scent for every single day of the year.
Taurus Art Prints: Just as art prints were suggested before in an effort to make a space feel more warm and cozy, an art print of the taurus constellation or their birth chart would be a gorgeous gift. It is super easy to find prints like this on Etsy and other similar websites, and the quality of this gift will have your favorite taurus talking about it forever!
While these were just a handful of gift ideas for your favorite taurus, hopefully you now have a better idea as to what you should get for their upcoming birthday or event! Whether you decide to go with a gift of quality or a gift to appeal to the senses - or even both - they will be sure to love it!
