The art of gift, sign by sign: Cancer

Published by Creativando 20 June 2016

Sentimental, creative, seductive, determined but also stubborn and insecure. The world of Cancer is populated with contradictions. An armor protects a sweet and emotional character. Home and family are priority. Sex is love. And vice versa.

Feelings and purity of Cancer

«In the cherry blossom’s shade there’s no such thing as a stranger».

Love and profession

Those born under this sign are tender and romantic lovers, ready for everything for the supreme feeling.

The deep thought and innate empathy, favour social or introspective jobs in art, psychology, medicine and teaching fields.

Art, music, show business…

Hermann Hesse, Franz Kafka, Meryl Streep, Giorgio Armani, Tom Cruise, Ernest Hemingway, Carlos Santana, Cyndi Lauper, Lady Diana.

Time After Time

Cindy Lauper


Good traveller, curious and careful, the Cancer loves romantic escapes.

Hong Kong and its charm suspended between Orient and Occident, the thousand markets and districts, the food, the places, the alternative shopping, it is an unmissable destination.

And how not suggest Mexico? For its sea, and more. For the traditions, the archaeology, its warm people and, above all, for a rich and various handicraft, unique in the world. It’s a great temptation for a Cancer.

For every Water sign the sea is an ancestral call… And for a Cancer the sea is a candid beach where lie down from dawn to dusk, alternating baths and swimming faraway from the confusion. Minorca, calm, always sunny and rich of isolated coves: the perfect shelter.


The purity and candor of white, fits perfectly with the pure and innocent Cancer's character. It brings peace and wellness, and helps to overcome the isolation moments, where sometimes people born under this sign take refuge.

The ideal environment

Warm, refined and cozy. The house is the vital center, illuminated by natural light, with plenty of shelves, bookcases and racks where to store family photos, collections, design objects, (small and large, sometimes bulky) and travel souvenirs. Large spaces, few walls. And the green, great protagonist. Many plants, preferably fat plants or with large leaves. Everywhere. Natural style.

«Chocolate» trivet

Cancer friends love sweets and especially chocolate. So, with a bit of irony, surprise them with «Chocolate»: it looks like a bar of chocolate, but it’s instead a useful ceramic trivet, where to put boiling pots or smoking cafetieres. Packaged in a beautiful book look-alike box. Great effect and manages to get a smile.


«The Art Panels» wall panels

Something new and artistic to embellish the walls of Cancer’s home. «The Art Panels» are made of corrugated cardboard, they are 4 cm thick, with black core.
They reproduce works and illustrations of affirmed artists and they are digitally printed. Ecological, exclusive and coloured. The small size (only 34 cm of diameter), the ease to hang them (just a thin nail needed) and the originality of their subjects, make «The Art Panels» a “Picture/Object” nice to give and to give yourself too.


Flowers vase

In a Cancer’s home the flowers are never enough. And also the vases to contain them.

The black oval vase «Heller Garden», where an original Keith Haring’s work made in Gardone Riviera on Garda Lake is represented, it’s the perfect synthesis between style and utility.

Of course all italian ceramic, lead-free, that uses only non-toxic glazes.
