Enneagram Gift Guide

Nov 6, 2020

Gift intentionally this season by choosing the right gift for your loved ones personality and enneagram type with this holiday gift guide!

I’ve become obsessed with the enneagram these past few years—it’s been such an incredible resource to understand why I do things the way I do, how I relate to others and has helped me graciously understand and collaborate with others different than me. Sometimes I laugh when a friend tells me something or when I do something that is so directly related to my enneagram type (I’m a type 1, helloooooo being super hard on myself)!

I thought it would be fun to do a different sort of gift guide this holiday season—you know I am all about intentional gifting and quality over quantity, so choosing gifts that the receiver will really appreciate can help you be more intentional!

Please note: Choosing ethical + sustainable brands is a priority for me when possible, which you will see reflected in this gift guide!

If you want to learn more about the enneagram, my favorite resource is Nine Types Co!

What’s your enneagram type? Hope this enneagram gift guide serves you well this season!
