The Perfect Holiday Gift For Every Enneagram Personality Type
Holiday shopping doesn’t have to be stressful— especially if you know your loved ones’ personality types. From the wildly popular Myers-Briggs to classic sun-sign astrology, applying insights about a friend or family member’s unique quirks and interests can make your shopping easier (and, more importantly, far more fun). This year, try gift-giving based on one of our favorite personality tests out there: the straightforward, number-based Enneagram.
ONE: THE REFORMER
Black + Decker 5-Speed Hand Mixer ($30): Perfectionist rule-followers with a penchant for all things practical, Ones would most likely appreciate a gift that will help them improve — and add efficiency to — their lives. There’s nothing better than a quality hand-mixer to (literally) keep things smooth in the kitchen.
TWO: THE HELPER
Zyllion Shiatsu Massage Pillow ($45): Twos are givers to the core, even if it means they neglect their own self-care. Encourage your generous, thoughtful loved one to take care of themself with a home massage tool that’ll relieve all that pent-up tension — but don’t be surprised if they offer to let you enjoy it first.
THREE: THE ACHIEVER
Cosori Mug and Warmer Set ($50): Fours are driven and success-oriented, fueled by their desire to achieve both personally and professionally — and, let’s be honest, that means they’re probably also fueled by coffee. Do your part to help the Three in your life get to the “next level” with a clever, pragmatic present that supports their caffeine need.
FOUR: THE INDIVIDUALIST
Artlicious Complete Painting Set ($20): Sensitive, poetic Fours place a high value on depth, emotion, and nostalgia. Whether or not your Four considers themself an artist, chances are they’ll appreciate the opportunity for a creative release.
FIVE: THE INVESTIGATOR
Areaware Table Tiles ($23): Five is called the “investigator” for a reason! Knowledge-driven, analytical, and clever, this personality type would love a present that’s equal parts intellectually stimulating and aesthetically pleasing.
SIX: THE LOYALIST
Empowered by Maya J “Strong” Bracelet ($38): Ever vigilant and thoughtful, the Six personality focuses on risk over benefit, which can make them anxious. This practical, wearable gift will remind the Sixes in your life of their inherent strength and wisdom — and maybe encourage them to take a risk.
SEVEN: THE ENTHUSIAST
Gratitude Glass Jar ($45): Spontaneous, pleasure-seeking Sevens are always on the hunt for the next best thing, which means they may struggle with being present. Encourage presence and gratitude in your loved one with an equally whimsical and thought-provoking gift.
EIGHT: THE CHALLENGER
Gift Card or Cash: Independent pillars of strength in their own right, Eights are contrarians who love to exert control over themselves and their surroundings. Since Eight knows best, invest wisely in a gift card or straight-up cash gift — plus, of course, a sweet, hand-written note to go along with it.
NINE: THE PEACEMAKER
Terrania Reversible Sherpa Throw Blanket ($23): There’s nothing a Nine loves more than harmony — in the heat of a disagreement, this peace-keeping personality type always sees both sides. Get your Nine a useful gift that matches their warm and versatile personality.
