Sentimental Cancer is all about family. This sign adores meaningful gifts — items from the past, things found in an antique or thrift shop, or something handmade will all be big hits. Items that appeal to the Crab’s love of comfort and connection will also go over well.
Great gifts for Cancer: A loaf of homemade pumpkin bread; a framed family photograph or a photo album pre-loaded with pictures of loved ones; a pair of throw pillows in silk or velvet; a gift certificate to a home improvement or décor store; genealogy software; a gift certificate to a favorite eatery; cake decorating lessons; a homemade book of family recipes.
