Appeal to her emotional side

Emotions form an important part of a romantic relationship for a Cancer woman. She is sensitive to how her partner handles her feelings and desires and can edge away if met with a rough word or even indifference. So when looking for a gift for your Cancer girlfriend, choose something that expresses your innermost feelings for her. One of the best ways you can do this is by presenting a book of romantic poetry – explore the love sonnets of Shakespeare or the sensuous imagery of Pre-Raphaelite poets if her tastes are on the classical side. For a more modern bent of mind, Sylvia Plath’s incisive verses or Emily Dickinson’s mystical ones can also be the perfect way to express your love for her. Even romantic novels or a book of love quotations can make for a thoughtful gift for your Cancer partner since a woman of this zodiac needs to feel emotionally close to her lover, in tune with what he is thinking and feeling, in order to feel happy in the relationship.

Feminine fragrances

The moon is the ruling planet for a Cancer which makes women of this zodiac sign highly feminine and seductive. Like the lunar influence which draws the tides in the ocean, a Cancer woman when in the mood, can attract a man to her without so much as lifting her delicate little finger. So one of the best gifts for a Cancer woman would be perfumes which are suited to her graceful and feminine sensuality like those which have definite floral notes. Floral fragrances are composed of essential oils extracted from flowers, the most common of which are rose, jasmine, orange blossom, carnation, gardenia, tuberose and lavender. You can choose from several well-known brands like Clinique Aromatic Elixir, Ralph Lauren Romance and Yves Saint Laurent Paris. Such floral fragrances are perfect for Cancer women since their mild and lush notes go well with the innate charm, sympathetic natures and pleasing manners of those born in this zodiac.

Home and kitchen accessories

An essential aspect of the Cancer’s personality is a love for home and family – hardly surprising since they bear the symbol of the Crab, a creature which is happy to lug around its house on its back. In women this trait is manifested in a maternal and caring nature. A Cancer woman is likely to be the happiest at the center of a large family and comfortable home. So look for items of home décor, especially those that improve the comfort of the interiors and provide a cozy homely atmosphere like plush pillows, soft rugs and flowing curtains. Cookware, cookbooks, and gift certificates to kitchenware shops are gifts that would satisfy the nurturing aspect of Cancer women – they not only love cooking to feed their family healthy home-made food but also look forward to entertaining friends and acquaintances at their home. One of the chief pleasures of Cancer women is to whip up large hearty meals and preside over the dinner table groaning with goodies of every kind and any gift ranging from dinnerware to slender candlesticks that adds on to this experience will be appreciated by Cancer women. Alternately you can also gift her lessons at a cooking class or cooking DVDs which will enlarge her already substantial culinary repertoire.

Something to indulge in

Cancer is a water sign which is why women of this zodiac are naturally inclined to relax and indulge themselves with this element. For her own well-being, your lunar goddess may love nothing more than a soothing bubble bath. The water is her natural element and a bath scented with natural essential oils, and lit by natural candlelight will be pure bliss to the Cancer woman. So Look for bath accessories like bath salts, scented candles and aromatic lotions that you can gift to help her soothe feel relaxed and pampered. Likewise she will also be happy to receive cozy pajamas, bathrobes, and even romantic lingerie as gifts. White, cream, and silver are the best colors to appeal to the Cancer feminity since they are all in shades of the moon. Cancer women have a tendency to be overwrought in their maternal and nurturing activities and any pleasurable experience which can calm their frayed nerves will be highly appreciated.

Restful vacations

In fact you can take the water theme still further and gift your Cancer woman an appropriate vacation. You can arrange for her to spend a few days on a tropical beach where she can sunbathe on the golden sands or go for leisurely swims in the turquoise sea. Or you can whisk her away to a lakeside resort where hand-in-hand you both can watch the sun go down behind the mountains. However do not seek to incorporate too many water sports or aquatic adventures into your holiday since a Cancer woman likes to take life easy and water to her is a calming and relaxing element rather than a stimulating one. Yet another great idea on the holiday theme would be to gift her a stay at a spa with ample water features and relaxing treatments. If your resources are more limited then gift certificates for a massage or a stone therapy treatment make wonderful gifts for Cancer women as well.

Overall Cancerians are some of the most agreeable people to be with and a woman of this zodiac is usually easier to please in matters of gifting as compared to a sign like the demanding Leo or the fastidious Virgo. Just be sure to infuse lots of romance into your gift ideas and show that you are sensitive to her feelings and needs and she will heartily appreciate your tokens of love.
