Gifts for Taurus Men
Men with the sign of Taurus includes all those born from 20th April to 20th May. Being a fixed earth sign, this lends rootedness, constancy and physicality to its subjects and ideally you should look for the same qualities when choosing a gift for Taurus men.
One of the most marked traits of the Taurus man is his love of creature comforts. He loves to be indulged by the best that money can buy and that which give him a sense of ease and prosperity in a very physical way. This means that if you are looking for a gift for your Dad, you can make him very happy with a large, softly padded armchair into which he can sink on cold winter nights and read the newspaper by the fireside. For a younger male Taurus you can look for extremely comfortable socks or even woolen bedroom slippers which fit snugly. For a guy who you don’t know well enough to give such intimate presents, you can choose linen in Egyptian cotton or a warm Persian rug to make his day.

Taurus men appreciate gifts which indicate expense and class which is why you are unlikely to go wrong with gift items made from fine and handmade leather. Belts, wallets, briefcases and boites make excellent gift choices for Taurus men since they not only exude a sense of distinction and material solidity but also satisfy his urge to be associated with money and finances. Diaries, pen cases and organizers are other smaller products in the same genre. If you have the resources, go for expensive brands like Pineider, Underwood London, Jack Georges as well as Caran d’Ache and your guy will be flattered by the luxurious appeal of such gift items.
Something that is sensual
Physical intimacy, softness and tactile pleasures are what turn on a Taurus man. So when his birthday comes around, look for the smooth of a silk scarf or the warm softness of a Cashmere pullover. If you are looking for a special gift for your Taurus boyfriend you can rarely go wrong with a jar of warm, satiny cream to rub his shoulders and chest with - the areas Taurus men have the most tension. Wrap up a new designer men's cologne and tuck it under his pillow and afterward tell him how much this scent turned you on while you were browsing through the department store. Alternately you can put together a gift hamper with toiletries to pamper your Taurus man, including his favorite fragrance aftershave, shower gel and shampoo as stocking fillers. Yet another great idea in this gift category would be to present him with a session of indulgence at his favorite spa or a luxury resort which of course should include mud-wrap that is sure to appeal to his earthy nature.
Appeal to his love of music
One of the sexiest characteristics of a Taurus man is his wonderfully sexy, deep voice. Taurus rules the throat, and many Taurus are well known singers or at least have a keen ear for music. Thus you can look for CDs of your guy’s favorite band or composer or even the latest mp3 player or an i-Pod to gift to your Taurus guy. An even better idea, especially if you are cash-strapped would be compile his favorite numbers into a CD yourself and present it as a gift – while the materialist in him may not be very impressed, the personalized gesture will surely pamper his ego which is no mean thing with a Taurus male.
The typical Taurus man is a collector - to him this is as much proof of material prosperity as much a sign of class and distinction – all values which are highly important for men born under this zodiac. If you know the person’s interests quite well, maybe you can gift him something than he collects. If his tastes veer towards music, you could search for an original Stradivarius violin or if he is into ancient crafts how about Ming pottery? The catch here is that these items are limited in number and you would either have to have very wide resources or know an expert in the field to get your hands on the product. However if you looking for something which is expensive but not elusive, you could consider something like a chess set where the pieces are crafted from rare wood, crystal or precious stones like onyx.
One of the greatest sources of pleasure for a Taurus man is good food. Thus you can surprise your Taurus man with some special imported dark or white chocolate or a hamper of gourmet cheese. However avoid getting anything too fancy like truffles or quail meat. Instead stick to foods that evoke a sense of comfort, wholesome flavor and even better recall the happy memories of childhood – like perhaps rich dark chocolate pudding with vanilla custard or ice cream or juicy steak grilled to exactly how you man likes it; these would actually appeal more to a Taurus guy rather than foods which are merely exotic. You can invite your Taurus boyfriend to your place and surprise him with a home-cooked spread or take him out to a fancy restaurant. The former will give you and edge since the Taurus male likes his women to be nurturing and good cooks. Even the latter can be a great gift option but you need to be careful with your choice of restaurant since the Taurus guy can be quite discriminating in matters of food and service.
Close to the land
The Taurus is an earth sign which is perhaps why men of this zodiac are naturally drawn to farms, real estate and everything to do with land. So a wonderful gift for a Taurus guy would be a vacation at a luxury inn in the country or spend a few days on a farm. If these are beyond your budget or too much hassle to arrange, you can take him out on a long drive to the pleasant countryside or spend a whole day picking fruit at an orchard. These may be rather unusual gift ideas but are sure to appeal to a Taurus man’s love of land and earthy sensuality.
