A Gift Horoscope for Your Favorite Taurus

The stars have aligned! Whether the Taurus in your life leans to the sensible side or the sensual side, we've got stellar birthday presents for these no-bull Taureans.

Gifts For the Taurus Who's Practical

Sometimes the best presents are things people can actually use – and we know how much your sensible, no-nonsense Taurus would appreciate a gift like that.

Pantry In A Box made by

Could your Taurus use a pantry refresh? Whether they're ready to take staples to the next level or are just starting out and need to fill those empty shelves stat, we've got the full upgrade in our Pantry in a Box. With sea salt mixed with bright Meyer lemons, the best dried pasta we've ever tasted, a life-changing whole grain mustard, hand-pressed EVOO, small-batch balsamic and more, it's a gift they'll put to good use.

Bowled Over Gift made by

Does your Taurus like to have everything in its right place? We know that type of Taurus, too, which is why we combined three of our favorite snacks – tiny-kernel sea salt popcorn, buttery maple-roasted cashews and the absolute crispiest potato chips – with three perfectly sized serving bowls. Made from solid beech, walnut and cherry wood, then hand dipped in rubber paint for a modern banded effect (and no-slip grip), our Bowled Over gift box will have them snacking in the most organized way. 

Salad Days Gift made by

Is your Taurus a health nut? Big salads are having a moment, and there's no better way to support your Taurus's healthy life choices than by giving them Salad Days. This kit has everything needed to do salads up right: fresh green olive oils, Mouth-watering vinegars and game changers like grainy mustard and flaky sea salt. Plus a set of colorful, paint-dipped wooden spoons to toss it all together. Look at us, being so practical with the tools, too.

For the Taurus Who's Passionate

Taurus is one of the most passionate, sensual signs in the Zodiac – so give them a gift that speaks to their burning heart.

Dark and Stormy Cocktail Kit made by

Does your Taurus have a dark and stormy side? Give them everything needed for a Dark and Stormy Night! With this kit they can mix up a perfect Dark and Stormy with Old New Orleans Amber Rum – a blend of three rums made from Louisiana sugar cane – and Barrow's Intense Ginger Liqueur, which is a...well, it's an intensely fresh, spicy, sweet ginger liqueur. Then dim the lights, spark Malin+Goetz's bestselling Dark Rum candle (which will burn for up to 60 hours) and see where the night leads.

Date Night Gift made by

Could your Taurus use a romantic night in? Give them a complete Date Night, with a bottle of red and a bottle of bubbly; savory snacks, like cranberry-hazelnut crackers, olive-parmesan tapenade and perfectly salted popcorn; and sweets, like chocolate gingersnap cookies and decadent chocolate-hazelnut spread. Significant other not included.

Chocolate-Covered Snacks made by

Is your Taurus anything but vanilla? Drown them in love and chocolate with Chocolate-Covered Mouth. It's got pretzels, hazelnuts, animal crackers, peanut butter cookies, s'mores and more – all covered in luscious chocolate. It’s the gift that says you care a choco-lot.

Gifts For the Taurus Who's Reliable

Give them the gift that they can rely on: a present that arrives on their doorstep every month!

Does your Taurus have a reliably well-stocked bar cart? Give them a full-size bottle of small-batch, American-made Vodka Every Month. One month it might be vodka distilled from apples in upstate New York. Another month it might be meticulously crafted bottles made by scientists in Brooklyn. Or a bright citrus vodka from Northern California made from Seville oranges. Months of reliably excellent bottles.

Does your Taurus have reliably great taste? Give them the Best of Mouth Every Month, a selection of the very best treats that come across our tasting table. They’ll find the best sweet, salty, baked, pickled goodies – whatever amazing discoveries are crossing our tasting table. It’s the gift that helps them keep their great taste reliably fresh.

Is your Taurus reliably picky? Give them a monthly delivery of Pickles Every Month, a monthly subscription box filled with the best pickled cukes we've tried – plus all sorts of other delicious pickled things (like asparagus, beans, cherry tomatoes, fennel, watermelon...we could go on).

Whatever type of Taurus you're celebrating, make sure to do it deliciously.
