The first of my holiday gift guides is up and this one is all about the Enneagram. If you aren’t familiar with the Enneagram, it’s basically a model that describes the 9 different personality types of humankind. According to the Enneagram, each type views the world a little differently. Knowing which type you are can help you better identify your inner desires, what motivates you, your fears, strengths/weaknesses, etc. (If you’re not sure what type you are, you can take the free quiz here. ) I’m a Type 9 and it couldn’t be more accurate – I hate conflict and crave all the cozy things!
Traditionally in the past I’ve done Gift Guides for Her, Him and the Kids. Those are coming soon but I thought this might be a little fun. So grab a cup of coffee, take the quiz, learn a little more about yourself and scroll to see my gift ideas based on your personality type. (Click the links to shop)
Type 1 The Reformer –
Reformers are very rational. They have a strong sense of right and wrong, they love order, are always working towards self-improvement and they tend to be perfectionists. Gifts to help them meet their goals and keep things clean and organized are right up their alley.
Roomba – So they can keep their homes looking immaculate.
Journal – This journal from Workspacery is geared towards Type Ones to help you stay organized and track your goals. Use code OURTINYNEST at checkout for free U.S. domestic shipping.
Pantry Organization and Storage – their Type 1 hearts will love seeing their pantry all organized.
Type 2 The Helper-
Two’s gravitate towards meeting the needs of others. They care so much for others that sometimes they forget their own needs. They love their people deeply and just want to be loved in return. Gift ideas for 2s would be something geared towards entertaining, helping them pamper themselves or towards a company that gives back.
Gorgeous Cheese board – 2’s love to entertain and have everyone together and this cheese board is gorgeous.
Barefoot Dreams Bathrobe – so they can kick back and relax when they’re done caring for everyone.
Herbivore Botanicals Self Love Kit – let them pamper themselves
Type 3 The Achiever –
If you know a Type 3, they are very ambitious, and crave success. They are driven to have the right job, right house, right car, etc which can sometimes be exhausting.
coffee machine – Gift them a super cool coffee maker so that they can get their juices flowing.
Apple watch – let them keep track of all those appointments.
Instant pot – chances are, if you’re a 3 or know a 3, they can be workaholics. The instant pot can help them get dinner ready in a flash on those late nights or when they’re busy crushing goals.
Type 4 The Individualist –
Creative, authentic, sensitive and nostalgic are some of the words used to describe Type 4’s. Perfect gift ideas are something that allows them to express their creative side, something handmade or with a sentimental value.
Customized recipe pie plate – get grandma’s famous apple pie recipe in her own handwriting made into this pie plate. So so special. I have been wanting one of these for awhile.
Fingerprint jewelry – I love jewelry keepsakes with your loved one’s fingerprint and these rings are so cute!
AirPods – so they can listen to their favorite music or podcasts and be inspired.
Type 5 The Investigator –
Introverted with a love to learn and explore. Books, a class or anything that gives them the opportunity to learn something new would be a nice gift for a 5.
Kindle – so they can read all the things.
Cookbook – A cookbook that breaks everything down to a science.
At home DNA kit – Investigator’s would love to learn more about themselves, their makeup and background with a kit like 23 and me.
Type 6 – The Loyalist
Need to feel safe and secure. They tend to be anxious and suspicious. They also love to be in the closeness of good friends and family.
Ring doorbell – to help them feel safe when they are away from home.
Weighted blanket – great for alleviating anxiety and helping to promote a restful sleep.
Mindfulness journal – practicing mindfulness and gratitude can help 6’s focus on the present and be a good daily exercise.
Type 7 – The Enthusiast
Playful, fun-loving, and spontaneous. They tend to be a bit scattered. 7’s love anything fun or new experiences.
A good weekender bag – for their spontaneous trips.
Band tee – 7’s love going to concerts and music. Gift them this graphic tee and take them to a concert.
Planner/calendar – this planner is geared towards Enthusiasts so they can keep all of their trips and ideas in one place. Use code OURTINYNEST at checkout for free U.S. domestic shipping.
Any type of experience gift like going to an escape room, tickets to a concert or weekend away.
Type 8 – The Challenger
Natural leader, self confident, determined, committed. They can be somewhat confrontational when they are passionate about something.
Amazon gift card – Challenger’s know exactly what they want so would appreciate a gift card so they can get it themselves.
Perfect black pants by Spanx – Chances are if you’re an 8 you already ooze with confidence but these pants will make you feel even more fierce.
CBD night cream – a moisturizer that works at night to help bring out their softer side and help them de-stress at the end of the day.
Type 9 – The Peacemaker
Easy-going and agreeable, 9’s dislike conflict. They crave peace and comfort. Anything home-related and cozy would be very appreciated by a 9.
Sherpa lined-cardigan – they can cozy up at home on the couch with this soft sherpa-lined cardigan.
Diffuser – so they can be all zen and fill their homes with all the peaceful vibes.
Faux Fiddle Leaf tree – 9’s feel at peace with nature and this faux fiddle leaf tree would look cute in any corner in their home.
