Whether it be your family member, friend, co-worker, or significant other—we’re all lucky to have a Taurus in our lives. Those born between April 20th and May 20th are a part of the second sign of the zodiac, making them a dependable earth sign. As earth signs, they're known to be grounded, reliable, and patient.
Although these are predominant traits of the Taurus personality, this is not a one-dimensional sign! Many Taurus’ are known to be riveted by aesthetics and the finer things in life (check out this luxurious silk pillowcase). They’re also known to appreciate simple and hands-on activities, like cooking or painting. Seeing something they’ve worked hard towards coming to fruition is an invaluable gift to them.
We have put together a list of birthday gift ideas that are sure to please your reliable Taurus!
The best part, these gifts are Tokki Tested. Check out what that means.
Tokki was NOT paid by anyone for these opinions (even by ourselves as it turns out).
Taurus are no-”taur”-ious (I couldn’t help myself!) for loving hands-on, tactile activities that can keep their minds and hands occupied. A pottery class is a great chance to satiate their need to be hands-on, and spend some quality time with them along the way.
Jane Park, CEO and Founder of Tokki
"Just because it’s a cliche doesn’t mean it’s not ALSO amazing. I love taking pottery classes for so many reasons: 1. You get to have something useful. 2. You get to experience in real-time how something can go differently than the way you saw it in your head but you can still salvage it and make something of beauty out of it anyway. 3. Every pottery teacher I’ve ever met is an astonishing human being. My pottery teacher in New Haven had this incredible glaze that she kept adding to every year like a sourdough starter. Her original Picture of glaze came from Japan and she thought it had been used for hundreds of years before she was able to receive her scoop."
Can’t make it to an in-person class? Consider buying some already-made pieces like this leaf bowl from Lauren Sumner Studio. These beautiful hand-made pieces are unique and fulfill Taurus’s ache for aesthetics while providing a great method of organizing the smaller nick-nacks in their life.
For a sustainable and truly memorable way to wrap this piece, gift wrap in our size small Tokki wrap and customize a special message with a photo or video on the Tokki band.
We’ve mentioned that Taurus love anything hands-on and grounding, so what better way to connect to the world and each other than with food? This sign is also known for their connection to all-things sensory, so taste is an important quality to consider for them.
Potluck is an awesome brand that provides high-quality kitchenware at an affordable price. They cut out the middleman and make products that are durable, versatile, and don’t break the bank.
Not only are plants the perfect addition to Taurus’s already beautiful aesthetic, they also are a great reflection of who they are as people. Taurus are known for being reliable and grounded, and what’s more grounded than a plant.
Taurus’ love to take care of those around them, and have an innate instinct for helping the people and things they care about. Plants are a great place for them to direct their energy, while allowing them to practice patience while tending to them.
The Sill is a great place to explore for any of your Indoor potted plant needs. Their mission is to bring people joy with plants! Much like our mission here at Tokki, they value connection and appreciate the happiness brought by wildlife.

As we now know, activities that take patience and result in a beautiful work of art are right up Taurus’s alley. This unique company, Mii Creative, allows you to send in a photograph of something you (or your trusty Taurus) care about and get back a paint-by-numbers canvas with paints to match.
This gift combines creativity and thoughtfulness in the best ways. You can even get one for yourself and paint with them! But be warned-it’s likely with Taurus’ patience you won’t be leaving until the painting’s complete.
Although Taurus are known to love their home-base, an urge to travel is also associated with this sign. Many need to see the rest of the world in order to discover who they are and what they want (no matter how cliche), and this beautiful coffee table book is a nod to their adventurous side.
