Beginning at the summer solstice and moving into the summer heat, those born under the Cancer zodiac sign celebrate their birthdays from June 21 - July 22. Can we say a big hello to sensitivity? As a water sign who's ruled by the moon, your Cancer friends carry a heavy emotional burden and a vulnerability that often makes them tuck back up in their cozy crab shell, where things are just how they like them!
This sun sign is known for having a bit of a broody nature––and if you approach them with a change that tickles their nerves, they're likely to hightail it out of there, walking sideways just like their crabby constellation. Since they have an emotional depth that feels unmatched by most other star signs, we went on the hunt to find gift ideas that'll show them just how much we care about them.
Now you can take your gifting to the next level, where your nearest and dearest Cancerians can focus on simple pleasures and creature comforts. Whether you're looking for the perfect birthday gift for your loved one, or a gift of appreciation, this gift guide rounds up some of our favorite boxes for cuddly Cancers.
