Cancer man gifts

Recent visitor comments and ideas

As a cancer man, I want a woman to dress well, make me dinner at home, set a stage for desert in the bedroom & make me king for a few minutes in the bedroom. Beyond physical and emotional care, good gifts are always the thoughtful and personal ones. A good book, cologne, a shirt, something or hat if I'm self-conscious about loosing my hair.


Sirius satellite radio for the car was the best gift I ever received


Where gifts are concerned, less is more. A simple gift that is chosen by someone I love is automatically perfect. Any small trinket becomes priceless if it's given by someone special. I've always loved getting a book that covers a subject I don't normally pay attention to. Something that broadens my thinking maybe. I guess when it comes to this cancer guy at least, it is the thought that counts. I've never been comfortable accepting gifts. I always get more enjoyment from giving them.



Cancer man gifts

Below are some suggested Cancer man gifts sorted by category. We're always looking for more Cancer gift suggestions so if you're a Cancer man we'd love to hear what your favorite gifts have been. There's a form at the bottom of the page.

Kindles

With hundreds of thousands of books available anywhere and anytime (they use a wireless internet connection) a new book is always just a few seconds away (even large books download in about a minute).

The more expensive Kindles allow you to send and receive both emails and texts with no monthly subscription. This can save a small fortune if your man currently uses a cell phone with an expensive data plan to do so.



Video games and consoles

There was a time when video games were for kids. These days however there are many titles which adults enjoy, and it's not uncommon for a video game to be the centerpiece of male gatherings.

I've even heard of couples who use console fighting games to resolve arguments. If you can kick your mans butt in a boxing or kung fu game you will score major sexy points. Every guy under 45 secretly wants a woman who likes to play video games.



Netbooks and laptops

Laptops and Netbooks can get fairly expensive ($300-$1500), however there are also lots of accessories for them which are much more affordable, and ironically often last longer than the laptop itself (so buying universal accessories which fit any model is a good idea when possible)

Some accessories are really just gimmicks, however there are a few which can be invaluable. Amongst the more useful ones are carrying cases (the stronger the better) external keyboards (many built in keyboards are very uncomfortable to use if you have big hands) and portable storage devices (USB drives, passports etc). Spare batteries and cable locks are also very useful if your man travels much.

Tools and the home

If your Cancer man takes a lot of pride in his home, or is the practical type then tools may be a good choice, especially if you've recently bought a home together, or plan to do so.

As a side note, women are sometimes reluctant to buy tools for their man thinking it's the equivalent of them receiving a vacuum cleaner (which generally they don't want!) Guys tend to look at things slightly differently however. Tools are more like toys, and receiving them from a partner is often seen as a tribute to ones manliness. So don't hold back due to the practical side of tools.



Car parts, tools and toys

If your Cancer man enjoys working on his vehicle then there are an abundance of gadgets, toys and technology to choose from...





Clothes

If your man is the scruffy type then birthdays and Christmas can be the perfect time to modernize his wardrobe a little. An often overlooked option in this area is to give him you! Many Cancer men will agree that lingerie bought for you makes a great birthday or christmas gift for him. If your budget is tight then there are good ways to distract him...



Gourmet food

If your Cancer man appreciates fine foods and snacks then gourmet gift baskets often make a safe choice especially if you're on a budget. Most men prefer the more basic items such as cheese, wine and summer sausage over the more exotic things such as caviar.



Action gifts!

If your Cancer man is the active type then you can't go far wrong with anything related to his favorite hobby or sport. The main thing to keep in mind here is that guys tend to prefer 'toys' which 'do' things more than something less animate such as clothing.

If your Cancer is into a specific sport or hobby then the decision is often made easier for you. If all else fails a swiss army knife or power tools are a good generic choice. Remember though, we're looking for big boy toys here, and not creature comforts - you want something to embrace his manliness, not to impede it! (No snuggly socks with the multi-colored toes please!)



Watches

Watches are an ideal personal gift which will make your Cancer man think of you regularly. When choosing which type to purchase often the best approach is to take note of his old watch and buy one of similar design (ie if he has a rotary watch buy another rotary watch etc). Most men appreciate a personal message which is engraved. If you're feeling bold then a sexy one liner will make him smile for years!)



Gardening and the outdoors

Cancer men are some of the best BBQ chefs you'll ever find! Even if your favorite Cancer isn't normally much of a cook, you may be surprised what he can do in front of a a gas grill...



Home theater

If you Cancer man enjoys spending time at home then there's a good chance that secretly he would like a bigger sound system.



Movies and DVD's

Movies often make an inexpensive yet thoughtful gift. Perhaps the first movie you saw together?



Jewelry

If your Cancer man wears jewelry (check first if you have just started dating!) then it can make a very personal gift:





iPhone and iPods

There's a good chance your man already has one, but if he doesn't it can be another solid gift idea, and technology changes so fast that newer is always better.




Hobbies and Interests

If your Cancer man has an obsession other than you, then this gift category can make an obvious choice. Generally it's a bad idea buying something in the hope of inspiring him to take up a new hobby however.




Sports

If your Cancer is a sportsman then it can make for some easy and fast gift ideas.



Books and magazine subscriptions

Books and magazine subscriptions can be a good choice if you're looking for a cheap or non-intimate gift. Most men would place them fairly low on the "I really want this!" list however. For avid readers the kindle mentioned above is better all round due to the instant delivery times, and of course it saves trees too.




General Cancer man gift tips

There is a lot of traditional advice on buying for each star sign. Personally, I've found most of it to be fairly worthless.

Cancer Colors

For most guys colors just aren't that important. Go with his favorite colors as astrology can't help you much here.

Cancer birth stones, star stones, month stones

I suggest avoiding these because there's no agreed upon standard for them. There are various conflicting systems which match a stone to months and sun signs. It's almost guaranteed that if you give your beloved a necklace or ring with a certain significant stone, someone will later tell him it's the wrong one!

Wrapping paper, bows etc

Most men are more interested in the goodies inside than the wrapping, so again this isn't an area which benefits from too much thought or expense. This is one area where guys almost universally differ from women when receiving gifts (yes, we'll tell you the wrapping is awesome, but generally we're just being polite!) "Save the money on the wrapping and buy us a bigger toy!"
