Home Decor Gift Giving Guide for Enneagram Type 6’s

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.

Set of 3 Metal Boxes $98

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

On the SimpliSafe website, the text reads, “Protection for every window, room and door. Against intruders, fires, water damage, medical emergencies and more. All monitored 24/7 by professionals ready to dispatch police.” I mean… this is peace of mind for a Six!

Home Decor Gift Giving Guide for Each Enneagram Type

I’ve got something really special for you! If you aren’t familiar with the enneagram, it is a system of nine personality types which not only describes our personality but the motivation behind why we do what we do. And…I can really geek out over it. The enneagram has helped me understand myself, my husband, kids and others so much more and has given me a greater appreciation for how we are all created and wired. So, in order to have some fun with the enneagram, I’m sharing my recommendations for home décor gifts for each enneagram type! It is going to be so exciting to explore with you and I hope it will spark some ideas and brighten your day.
