So, you’re shopping for a Cancer…and you’re not sure what to get them. Don’t worry, we can help!
Born from June 21 to July 22 and represented by the crab, Cancers are known to be sensitive, emotional, nurturing, and intuitive. To give you an idea of just how impressive the sign is, some of our fave Cancer celebs include Ariana Grande, Solange, Tom Hanks, and Selena Gomez. Since they’re ruled by the Moon, Cancers’ emotions run high, making them seem either extremely sentimental or excessively moody (or both). Stay on their good side, or they’ll strike out with their crab claws!
Because of their tendency to be in their feelings, Cancers are usually the glue that holds the squad together—basically, they’re the ones you literally want to keep around at all times. So even if they’re not able to spend IRL quality time with friends and family, Cancer’s loyal nature means they’ll hold their connections close. They’re always the ones planning the Zoom party or sending you a care package or just a funny meme.
Cancers are the first ones to pour their hearts and souls into special gifts for friends, so we know they deserve only the very best. As water signs, Cancers are emotional and sentimental, so they’ll love a gift from the heart. As cardinal signs, they’re driven and determined, so they’ll appreciate something that helps them achieve their goals. Here’s a list of gift ideas to get the Cancer in your life.
