The Enneagram Type 6 is often called “The Guardian” or “The Loyalist.” They need to feel safe and secure and will often notice when something isn’t measuring up to their safety standards. Sixes can be given to worry, thinking of “worst case scenarios,” but also help make the world a better place as a result of their critique. They are hard workers, loyal and value close relationships.
Gift Idea #1: A Decorative Box (matching their decor) to hold all of their safety manuals
Enneagram 6’s like to have appliance and safety manuals handy in case of an issue. Gift your 6 a decorative box for them to keep their manuals together in one spot. The Container Store and Burke Decor are great resources for beautiful boxes.
Gift Idea #2: A trendy power surge protector
There is nothing more frightening to a six than the idea of a power surge taking out their tv, computer or other major appliance. Give them peace of mind in a stylish way with a decorative power surge protector.
Gift Idea #3: A storage cabinet filled with emergency supplies
An Enneagram 6 will rest knowing that all of their emergency supplies are secure in one place. Why not gift them a storage cabinet that looks like a gorgeous furniture piece, but is filled with first aid kits, batteries, important documents, and flashlights? Here are two of my favorites from Anthropologie.
Room Remodeling Project for a Type 6: A gift to the house and homeowner of a SimpliSafe Home Security System

What type of Christmas tree would a Type 6 enjoy the most? One that they know can’t hurt any human or pet!
