Finding the perfect birthday, anniversary or Christmas gift for a Taurus man can be quite tough. Taurus men have very particular tastes and will not keep something that doesn’t suit them just because it was a gift.
Born between April 20 and May 20, Taurus men are practical and down to earth, but with a taste for the finer things in life. That doesn't mean that they are pursuing luxury, though they do like to occasionally indulge in the finer things.
An earth sign, Taurus men are very in tune with their surroundings. They love the sights, sounds and smells of the great outdoors. They also want to control the ambience within their home and office.
Fortunately, when it comes to gift-giving, Taurus tends to be overly cautious when it comes to buying things for themselves. A Taurus man is usually fussy when it comes to quality and colour, so make sure you know him well enough to know what colours and aesthetics will appeal to him.
