You've probably heard of the popular Enneagram personality test that everyone has taken where each person is categorized into a numbered type (there are nine types total). I've taken the test online, and I'm a Type Two, The Helper. The Helper is empathetic and generous, so I thought I'd be generous and make your holiday shopping a little easier by sharing my favorite gifts for each Enneagram type.

Type One: The Reformer

Type Ones are well-organized and maintain high standards. A Type One would love any gift that helps them stay organized.

Your loved one will look super stylish taking their laptop on the go with this leather laptop carrying case.

Hard-working, responsible and trustworthy, everyone needs a Type Six in their life. And, if you're lucky enough to know one, the holidays are the perfect time to show them how much you cherish their friendship.

Type Eight: The Challenger

Type Eights know what they want — they're decisive, self-confident and resourceful. It may be hard to know what to get the Type Eight in your life, but we think they'll love the gifts below.

Type Eights get things done, and this five-year memory book is a great way for them to document their successes and obstacles in life. They'll be able to look back at where they were in life a year, two years and up to five years ago.

Type Nine: The Peacemaker

The name of Type Nine explains it all — the peacemaker. A Type Nine friend is trusting and accepting and avoids conflict. They're most likely your most supportive friend and are great at staying calm no matter the situation.
