Bormioli Rocco "Gelo" Fridge Jugs, $15.99
La Montañita Co-op
3500 Central SE
Simple yet luxurious, that's Taurus to a T. When they're at home, Tauruses love to bask in the earthy, quiet refinements of an excellent meal, a delectable set of sheets or pristine tablewear, such as these Italian glass carafes. They're gorgeous to look at and touch, yet they're dishwasher-safe and designed to fit in the tightest of refrigerators. They strike a practical chord, sumptuously.
Zouzou Pashmina Wrap, $58
Diva D'Luxe (formerly Viola & Co.)
7610 Menaul NE
Tauruses love to have their senses stimulated. Shop for high-quality clothes in plush, textured or silky fabrics that feel as good as they look. Bulls go especially wild for accessories that cover the throat, such as scarves or this luscious, cashmere-like pashmina by Zouzou. Just make sure you get one that's tactile, comfy and sharp.
Tom Ford "Ryan" Sunglasses, $300
Everyone needs sunglasses, but don't even think about getting Blue Blockers for the Taurus on your list. You can't go wrong with a pair of high-end frames. They make a big splash with fashionable bulls, or work as an instant style-maker for Tauruses who need help defining their fashion sense. Made in Italy (Tauruses are fascinated by foreign culture), these sunglasses are bold and sexy face-framers for men and women.
