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.

Type Two: The Helper

Type Twos are empathetic and warm-hearted, and Twos tend to become the host(ess) of the friend group. Below are some great gift ideas to show the Two in your life how much you care.

Crate & Barrel

Twos love to gather around their friends and gifting them this cheeseboard set will give them a good excuse to host a party.

Type Three: The Achiever

Type Threes are ambitious, energetic and charming. People look up to them, and their appearance is just as important as their success. They enjoy the finer things in life, and they would love our gift picks below.

From $20.52
Etsy | DEMOsJewelryWorld

Help the Threes in your life look their best with one-of-a-kind jewelry from Etsy, like this handmade personalized necklace.

Type Four: The Individualist

Type Fours are sensitive, honest and reserved, and our picks below will help them express themselves.

Pottery Barn

The Type Four in your life will be fully relaxed listening to their favorite records, but this isn't their grandpa's record player. This one comes with today's technology so they can also listen to music that's on their phone, too.

Type Five: The Investigator

If you have a friend that's the curious, insightful and intense type, it's likely they're a Type Five. Keep them challenged and on their toes with the gift ideas below.


A book is a great gift for Type Fives, but it may be hard to find one they haven't read. Instead, give them a subscription to Kindle Unlimited so they can read to their heart's desire.

Type Six: The Loyalist

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.

From $199

If the Type Six in your life is overwhelmed and stressed, a weighted blanket may be just what they need. It feels like a comforting hug and helps with sleep. If you're torn on which weighted blanket to get, check out our review of the Bearaby weighted blanket.

Type Seven: The Enthusiast

Type Sevens are adventurous, high-spirited and optimistic, so give a gift that keeps their spirit alive.


A great way for a Type Seven to document their adventures is with a camera, and the Instax Mini is the perfect companion to take along anywhere they go. You can even stock them up on fun film, like this mermaid tail print.

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 even 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.

From $22
Artifact Uprising

Compile all your favorite memories with the Type Nine in your life into a thoughtful photo book that they can keep for years to come, or give as a sentimental wedding gift with photos from their wedding.
