Covetable Gifts for a Caring Cancer
Sensitive and super sweet, this cardinal sign is arguably the mum of the zodiac. They take the lead on all things planning and are the holiday organisers, designated head of gift hunting (our kind of star sign) and the epitome of a therapist stroke friend. They are all about TLC and make it their top priority to ensure everyone feels extra loved and appreciated at any given time. So for this selfless water sign, when it comes to birthday gifts, just-because presents or any chance to show them love it is extra important that they feel super special. Read on for our curated zodiac gift guide with Cancer sign gifts that will give their head gifter status a run for its money.
For the lover
A Cancer’s obsession with deep connection and heartfelt bonds mean they were ready for romance from the get go. A lover by nature, they have a one-track heart and their life revolves around giving and receiving all the good feelings all the time. If you’ve had the pleasure of being lifelong friends with a Cancer, you’ve most likely known their wedding itinerary since grade school. Domestication is the aim of the game for a Cancerian and the true sign of success for their romantic agendas. If you know a Cancer, you might be used to feeling a little too loved sometimes. Known for being slightly too dependent (read clingy and needy), they take the concept of love languages to the nth degree. We’re talking all five and receiving gifts takes the top spot. To really show this lovable sign you get her, Cancer zodiac gifts for her big day (engaged or not) are the way to go.

For the joker
Cancerians are known for deep-rooted intuition and soulful connection so while small talk is definitely not their chosen way to pass the time, don’t be too quick to assume they’re about deep meaningful conversations and nothing more. This multi-faceted star sign has a light-hearted side and is never one to pass on a bit of tongue-in-cheek banter. Most likely rooted in their peace-making nature, they use the art of fine-tuned offbeat humour to successfully diffuse even the tiniest hint of drama. This sensitive zodiac will pull out all the stops to keep the negative vibes as far from their peaceful bubble as possible. For the joker of the friend group (self-proclaimed or otherwise), the perfect Cancer zodiac gifts for him are going to be ones that play into his surprising sense of humour.

For the homebody
With an intrinsic desire to make everyone in their life feel safe and loved, the compassionate Cancer’s home is nothing short of a refuge, for them and everyone in their lives. The ultra-loyal and compassionate Cancerian is the one hosting all the group therapy sessions, post-night out debriefs and (extended) ‘between places’ friends. You can count on them for a spare toothbrush in the bathroom, your favourite foods in the cupboard and a glass of wine ready and waiting on arrival. Determined to curate a space representative of their nurturing personalities, this natural born caregiver’s home is their pride and joy. A gift that contributes to their zen zone is a Cancer zodiac gift for her well given. From personalised pillows to artisan-made hairbrushes, peace, calm and relaxation are the name of the game.

For the empath
A Cancer’s deep-rooted emotional intelligence is both a blessing and a curse, a double edged sword, a conundrum, a doubtful advantage - call it what you will, it can be a bit of a burden. Being so deeply in tune with their emotions and with no ability to pick and choose when and where they feel, this empathetic sign feels it all. All the time. A stand-up friend and ultra-intuitive, they are the go-to of the group for all things advice and support. And they take their role very seriously. If they’re not careful, they can easily end up shouldering the world’s problems and their own. For the one that needs to be a little more protective of their own mental space, self-care Cancer zodiac gifts for him are the perfect present.gifts for unwinding
