The Best Bestie Christmas Gifts, Based On Her Enneagram Type

What To Get Your Bestie For Christmas This Year, Based On Her Enneagram Type

Let personality guide your gift selection!


If you don't know what an Enneagram is you need to jump on that bandwagon ASAP because figuring out your personality type with the Myers-Briggs test is SO 2019 — and we're looking ahead to the future, folks! Better yet, take this free Enneagram Personality Test and figure out what type matches you best, from type 1 (The Reformer) to type 9 (The Peacemaker).

Knowing your Enneagram type will give you a sense of why you react to certain situations the way you do (I fall somewhere between a 4 and a 6 and I now know why I'm such a nervous wreck all the time), but it can also be a great indicator of what you'd really appreciate getting as a Christmas gift.

That's why knowing your bestie's Enneagram type and using it to guide your Christmas shopping is a foolproof way of picking out a gift she'll LOVE and actually use. Happy shopping!

Type 1 (The Reformer) — Fred "The Obsessive Chef" Bamboo Cutting Board

Type ones are first and foremost perfectionists and they strive to follow the rules as much as possible, that's why this ultra-precision cutting board is perfect for them, particularly for the type ones who love to cook!

Type 2 (The Helper) — Succulents

Type twos are empathetic, sincere, and warm-hearted, but also notorious people-pleasers who love to take care of others. That's why getting your type two bestie a succulent is such a great idea, even when they're all alone with no one to care for, they'll still be able to dote on their succulent!

Type 3 (The Achiever) — Slate Mobile LapDesk

As you can probably tell from the name, The Achiever is, in fact, an overachiever. And what do overachievers do? They work as hard as possible to get ahead. That's why your type three bestie would love this handy mobile lap desk, so she can get a head start on her assignments from literally anywhere.

Type 4 (The Individualist) — A Personalized Name Necklace 

All type fours want in life is to find their calling and personal identity. They often feel slightly different from most people and take pride in their uniqueness. Help your type four bestie own her identity by gifting her this personalized name necklace with her name on it.

Type 5 (The Investigator)  — "Welcome To The Universe" Book By Neil deGrasse Tyson

Type fives, cleverly named "The Investigators," strive to understand EVERYTHING about how the world works. They seldom accept facts for what they are and instead will spend hours doing their own research to figure out if those facts are actually backed by valid information. That's why this 'Welcome To The Universe' book by the famous intellectual Neil deGrasse Tyson, which dives deep into how the universe works and why we live the way we do, is the perfect gift for your "Investigator" bestie.

Type 6 (The Loyalist) — Photo Album

Type sixes are the best of friends, they're committed, trustworthy, and (as their enneagram name suggests) loyal. But they can also be suspicious and anxious, so it's important that you take the time to reassure them of your commitment to the friendship. That's why gifting your "Loyalist" friend a photo album with pictures of all the best memories you have shared over the course of your friendship is such a great idea: it will reassure them that you do in fact care deeply about the relationship.

Type 7 (The Enthusiast) — Pure Silk Sleep Mask

The Enthusiast is always searching for new adventures and, as a consequence, is ALWAYS on the move. If your bestie fits into this category she likely loves adventure and traveling, but sometimes forgets to rest and take care of herself. Remind her to take some time for herself by gifting her this super soft and high-quality silk eye mask she can use to rest up when on the go.

Type 8 (The Challenger) — Keurig K250 Coffee Maker

The type eight "Challenger" is self-confident, strong, and assertive. One of the most common fears for this type of person is to be controlled by others, and what's worse than being controlled by the long line that's standing between you and your morning cup of joe? Help your type eight avoid delays in the morning by gifting her a Keurig so she can get her caffeine fix without waiting in line.

Type 9 (The Peacemaker) — Headspace Subscription 

The "Pacemaker" craves both internal and external peace more than pretty much anything else, so a headspace subscription would be the ideal gift idea for them. Your bestie will thank you for her renewed peace of mind!

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
