Calling all crabs! Late June marks the beginning of Cancer season, which means birthday time for anyone born under the astrological sign. Cancers are typically known for their unique mix of confidence and tender sensitivity and Cancer season is the perfect time to enjoy summer while strengthening meaningful relationships. This year, Cancer season stretches from June 21 (right around the summer solstice, which marks the first day of summer) to July 22.

If you have a friend or loved one with a Cancer sun sign, you know they’re definitely worth celebrating, especially on their birthday. Here are some birthday gift ideas to leave the Cancer in your life starstruck—even if they’re not one for astrology.

If your favorite Cancer is in fact into all things starry, give them a piece of jewelry to reflect that. June Cancers' birthstone is a pearl and July Cancers' birthstone is a ruby.

Cancer is a water sign, and summer is the ideal time for watery fun like beach days or time by the pool. Gift them something to wear by the water or to enjoy on their next vacation in paradise.

Also, Cancers don't like surprises. When you send them their celebratory gift with SmartGift, they can select the size, pattern, shade, or fragrance or even swap the gift for something they want more. That way everyone is happy!

If you know a Cancer, they probably have the tendency to be a homebody once in a while. That’s perfectly fine; home is the place to recharge and feel at peace. Help the Cancer in your life make their living space even cozier with a gift for their home.

Cancers are also ruled by the moon. The moon represents comfort and self-care, which is perfect for the male cancer who is looking for something that will keep them comfortable during their next outdoor adventure.
