Buh-bye, Aries, hello Taurus. The second sign of the zodiac's time to shine is April 20 until May 21, meaning your Venus-ruled BFF has a birthday coming up (and soon). If you're in a Taurus's inner circle, you can consider yourself one of a lucky few, as the Earth sign is notoriously closed off from most of the world to hide their strong secret emotions. We're celebrating our most stubborn, materialistic, and sentimental pals, but what do you buy for a sign that *loves* stuff and definitely takes everything personally? We came up with the best gifts for your favorite Taurus that are as harmonious and artistic as the wandering Bull.
Oh, and side note: we would never recommend something we weren't totally obsessed with — BUT we might collect some commission on sales or other compensation from the links on this page. xx.
This healing stone necklace is super customizable, meaning you can personalize it to your Taurus's personal preferences. Featuring a raw gemstone on a 14 carat gold-filled or sterling silver chain, this made-to-order item *screams* quality, and the adorable packaging will definitely satisfy your BFF's aesthetic needs. You can pick Emerald or Rose Quartz stones, gold or silver accents, and a variety of lengths between 16 and 20 inches. The shop offers necklaces for every sign, so you can even buy one for yourself too and make it into a matching BFF necklace set.

If your Taurus is less into boho and more into art pop, this small charm necklace is the perfect alternative to the celestial gemstone necklace. This clay necklace is also customizable with eight color options, although you will be stuck with gold accents, even if your friend is a winter. Because the item is handmade, you (probably) can ask the seller to personalize it, making a one-of-a-kind item for the perfect gift. There's also a circular version of the necklace or a similar dog tag from the same seller.

If you're all about astrology, you've at least considered getting invested in crystals. This set is the perfect gift because it comes with a nifty wooden display for the stones, making it easy to display them while keeping your crystal grid. The Taurus crystals include moonstone, rhodonite, kyanite, and green aventurine. The moonstone encourages deeper understanding in relationships (for their stubborn side), the rhodonite soothes old wounds to facilitate forgiveness and create self-esteem, the kyanite aligns your chakras, and the green aventurine detoxifies the user of negative energy and infuses their life with peace.

If you're given jewelry as your last five gifts, shake it up with this floral ashtray. Even if your Taurus isn't a smoker, the tray could easily be used as a trinket dish, and the handmade tray features real flowers pressed in the glass next to Taurus's constellation. The resin tray was inspired by Taurus, and it looks like something straight off of Tumblr. This ashtray is the perfect blend of Taurus' soft side and their love of excess. Sure, no one *needs* a custom-made floral ashtray, but that's exactly why Taurus will love it.

If you really liked our first necklace option but are shopping at the last minute (as we all do), this constellation necklace also features a raw gemstone alongside its gold and crystal replication of the Taurus star cluster — and it offers next day shipping. You can choose to forgo the stone if you only want the stars, but buyers have the option to place any birthstone alongside it for an extra ten dollars. For Taurus, that would be diamond or emerald, but if you know they hate their birthstone and want to shake it up, there are twelve gems to choose from.

Hidden crystal candles like this one can go for as much as $60 at stores like Free People, Sephora, or Anthropologie, so this $11 candle with herbs, flowers, and crystals nestled into the wax is luxury at a fantastic price. The candle is infused with eucalyptus, lemon, patchouli, and ylang-ylang to ease the stubborn Taurus's fear of change and general anxiety, and the candle will help you give Taurus the finer things in life they desire without forcing you to eat ramen for your next nineteen meals.

This colorful print is a great addition to any gift, taking it from a cute gesture to an "OMG, you shouldn't have!" moment. There are hundreds of downloadable zodiac posters on Etsy, but this Taurus print stands out. It includes a splash of watercolors on a white background, the Taurus constellation in a glitter textile, and various Taurus traits that are actually positive to gas up your fave bull. Not one mention of "stubbornness" to be found because we know they must be sick of hearing it all the time.

Unlike the crystal starter pack, this selenite stone is for the Taurus who's already deep into the crystal game. The sacred energy stone comes engraved with a bull to celebrate Taurus's strength and dependability and is wrapped in an organza bag for easy gift giving. The palm-sized stone is pretty huge, and the seller describes in detail how it can be used in Feng Shui to balance a room or cleanse your emotions. It's also great for crown chakra meditations, apparently. If your Taurus is a mystic, they'll freak over selenite even if they already have some because you can never have too much moonglow.

These Taurus zodiac earrings come in yellow gold, rose gold, and silver, so you should probably buy all three. This delicate stud is subtle enough to be classy, but clear enough to advertise your Taurus-ness to the world. Are those tiny fake diamonds or real celestial stars attached to your ear? There's really no way to know. The seller offers a matching necklace for $15 as well if you want to take these earrings from "trinket" to "affordable gift set."

The most expensive item on our list is also one of its best-sellers, with over 1,500 five-star reviews. The tiny pendant includes a real .01 carat diamond in a brilliant cut and comes in white, rose, or yellow gold. The necklace ranges from 14 to 22 inches in length, and it comes with free shipping. Sure, it's over $150, but if you're shopping for a special someone — be it an S/O, a parent, a sibling, or a really, really close friend — Taurus will appreciate the item's value and the loyalty implicit in the pricey purchase.

Even though this trinket dish doesn't expressly market itself as an Anthropologie knock-off, the clay dish is super similar to a couple of products Anthro sold in late 2018. Now that Anthro doesn't make their Zodiac Trinket Dish anymore, this constellation ring dish is the next best thing. It comes in five colors, but we're partial to the black text on a cream background. This made-to-order ceramic can be further personalized upon request, and it's classy AF. Make sure to order well in advance because it can take up to a month for Tasha to make and ship your order.

If crystals, jewelry, and things made specifically to hold crystals and jewelry are a little too cutesy for your Taurus, check out these Taurus symbol embroidered baseball caps. The denim and black options are definitely the cutest IMO, but there are five color possibilities for the hats and six for the embroidery, which is a middle school math word problem just waiting to happen. The hats can also be bought in bulk for your whole Taurus squad, or you can mix and match with the store's other awesome designs.

Stacking rings were all the rage in high school, and we're bringing them back. There are a lot of Taurus ring options on Etsy, and the beautiful thing about stacking rings is that you can buy them all, wear them at the same time, and call it fashion. Our faves are these dainty symbol rings that come in a truly ridiculous number of metals, ranging from the cheapest gold-filled band at $22 and capping out at a $270 solid gold option. We also dig a pair of tiny silver stamped symbol bands from pamelahattie that are $22 across the board.

This gold and white mug is a popular gift judging by the raving reviews filled with people who gave it to ecstatic friends for birthdays or holidays. The speckled white base has a delicate Taurus constellation handpainted in gold, complete with a gold rim and handle. The recipients' name, a sign, or really any other word you'd like is written in between the two ends of the mug handle. This is the most unique and beautiful mug option of the literal hundreds we browsed while researching this article, so just trust us on this one: you will never find a cuter mug. Ever.

Home goods are having a big moment. The market is too sour for any young person to actually buy a home, so we've resorted to going a little overboard with apartment decor. Nesting is a great way to pretend you have your life together, especially if you're a Taurus who's naturally resistant to change. You'll always have something to come home to if you've decorated your apartment so much that you can literally never get your security deposit back. This Taurus pillow comes in black, pink, or baby blue to match any apartment or home (lol, yeah right) color scheme.

Malas are Buddhist prayer beads that have gotten popular in the yoga community but haven't spread to trendy chain stores quite yet (thank God). They can be thought of like a Buddhist rosary, where each bead is counted when reciting mantras, breathing during meditation, or repeating a Buddha's name. If your Taurus is interested in meditation, these beads were collected specifically for the bull, with green aventurine for comfort and empathy, rose quartz for self-worth and trust in relationships, and crystal quartz for healing, balance, and warding off negativity. The beads focus on the Heart and Crown chakras, and they're perfectly curated for a Taurus's needs. The beads also come with mantras to help guide meditation.

You've got three options here. Surprise your friend with a batch of Taurus-shaped cookies, include this cookie cutter with another gift as a kitschy surprise, or make cookies *and* give your Taurus a clean, unused cookie cutter along with them. We'd go with option three because the only thing a Taurus loves more than stuff is a heartfelt human connection. Make some cookies with love to show how much you care, and your friend will be thrilled to have the excuse to show off their artistic side by making some zodiac cookies in the future, too.

This wooden lantern comes in walnut, tanganika, cherrywood, or beechwood and is handmade with a lase machine, which is objectively awesome. The etchings include Taurus's constellation, its symbol, its element (Earth, duh), and a drawing of a bull amongst the stars. Just place a candle (like, IDK, the crystal candle from earlier) into the box, and the drawings light up your room with their design. The top also has artwork of the entire zodiac, and while I'm not 100 percent convinced the box is not a fire hazard, just throw an electric candle in there and enjoy the pretty pictures.

We like our gifts like we like our feminism: intersectional. This mug features a Taurus queen rocking big hoops, an afro, and (of course) her crown. We live for representation in all forms, and this mug was literally the only zodiac item we saw featuring a person of color. There were literally more strange alien fantasy creatures with white features than there were P.O.C. featured on these gifts, like the Western zodiac isn't highkey inspired by Egyptians, Hinduism, and Babylonian astronomy in addition to its roots in Ancient Greece or something. Anyway, this mug is dishwasher and microwave safe, super cute, and doesn't white-wash a 1,800-year-old scientific discipline.

Saving the best for last, this farmhouse-inspired wooden sign comes in five colors with three engraving color options, meaning there are fifteen different ways you can personalize this sign for *your* favorite sign, sweet Taurus. A simple constellation design featuring a small Taurus symbol and the sign's dates, this piece will warm up your Taurus's home and their heart. This seller also makes a *giant* version of the sign for $92 and a framed map of the artwork for $108, but this smaller piece is by far the classiest, which any Taurus can appreciate.
