Still struggling? I've got some recommendations ready for you, should you want to use the stars as your guide...
Dish Up Their Sign...
Zodiac Plate from rorydobner.com
As Cancerian folk are the chefs, bakers, home-makers and general care-givers, what better than to give them something special to dine on?
This is a fine bone china plate, hand decorated and edged in 22 carat gold, so you can even display it on the wall!
Worth Shelling Out For!
The perfect perfume for a Cancer chick, the Earth Tu Face handmade botanical scent is grounding, balancing and soothing to the skin and spirit.
Featuring Geranium, Vetiver, Ylang Ylang, Lavender, and Patchouli, it also makes a fantastic concentrated scar treatment!
$78.00 USD at earthtuface.com.
Or, a lovely lip balm...
Or a seaside clutch with crabby detailing...
Coloured perspex clutch with hand-painted enamel zodiac symbol, from Charlotte Olympia.
An oldie but a goodie, this Charlotte Olympia clutch is particularly befitting as the colours of choice really suit the Cancerian sensibilities.
A feminine sign, Cancer chicks like girlie colours - white, creams and pastels, including pink.
Bags are a favourite of clingy Cancers, who like collecting things so much they're sometimes accused of hoarding!
For The Settled One...
You may want to club together for this one or simply take the chair as inspiration - a simple cushion will have the desired effect. You see, Cancer loves to nest, and they'll adore home furnishings that make home even more comfortable.

Beauty Gifts For Cancer Babes
A Nod To Nostalgia...
Cancer people love familiarity and surrounding themselves with pieces that speak of the past, of family and heritage.
You can frame any number of prints or family photographs and make the gift about the frame or what's inside...
I love this map of the sky on Etsy...
Remember, the Cancer jewellery style is a throwback to the past and they'll adore an old fashioned piece - especially pearls...
Jewelry For Cancer
Water Water Everywhere!
Did you know that the Cancer constellation rules over the sea?
Of course you did! But did you know it also overseas ports and harbours, pubs and bathhouses, washerwomen, bathrooms, bakeries and bread?!
Each zodiac sign has an affinity with a number of areas, and for Cancer the sign resonates with washing. Love these soaps that speak of the sea but you can choose any beachy gifts for the Crab in your life - think shells, seaside and the comforting sense of a port in a storm...
Tom Dixon's Scent Water candle promises to transform the home into a soul-soothing sanctuary awash with the fresh scent of watermelon and amber musk, perfect for the water sign, Cancer...
This is a feminine zodiac sign that likes to feed and nurture, so cooking equipment or anything to do with food will go down well too.
Like Taurus, Cancerian people love the texture of things, however where the Bull longs to luxuriate, Cancer wants to feel cosy.
Cashmere or any other soft fabrics take them home, while tartan brings them close to a clan.
Fashion & Accessories For Cancer
Even if they're not a terrific cook, Cancer loves the heart of the home - the kitchen.
A pot that lasts forever shows them your love will stand the test of time.
For A Little Cancer!
Via Little French Heart...
A Toy Boat makes for a beautiful gift for Cancer children (and adults!)
This version is made by Bateaux Tirot, formed in Brittany in 1946 - the hand-make their wooden boats to be seaworthy...
