Do you have a type 5 in your life who loves to learn and research? Read this blog! I’m sharing the best gifts for the enneagram type 5.
What Is The Enneagram 5?
The enneagram type five is called the investigator. Your core desire is to have knowledge, resources, and alone time. As a 5, you are logical, cerebral, analytical, and introverted. Your core desire comes from the fear that if you don’t have all the knowledge then you will be incapable. Being emotionally expressive and spontaneous doesn’t come naturally to you.

15 Gift Ideas For The Enneagram 5
Enneagram Coffee: FIVE Roast
I fell in LOVE with Enneagram Coffee the second I laid eyes on it.
Enneagram Coffee is a coffee roasting company that created a specific roast for each enneagram type. True hand-crafted, artisan coffee comes in a stylish bag with a morning affirmation for that specific enneagram type!
I haven’t tried the FIVE bag yet but with how much I loved their NINE roast, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
Enneagram 5s will appreciate the honesty of the phrase on the front of the bag, “all the answers to all of your questions… okay, maybe not but it’s still great coffee.”
Bills Bag Dry Pack
dry packs are an adventure item many people forget about, and it’s an adventure item I think everyone needs…well everyone needs a good one, and trust me there are plenty of bad ones out there. you need one you can trust to take down rivers or waterfalls.
get this for your adventure type 5, a super functional backpack that keeps everything dry in it…well as long as you do it right.
Enneagram fives need to be competent, and most likely, though they do it, they get stressed out if in any of the adventures they do, they do not have the data, or even more importantly the gear for them.
A multi-tool may sound dumb, but for the Enneagram Five, this is like a dream come true for a Christmas present.
the people behind naked nutrition are geniuses…and I mean evil geniuses, for they have successfully created protein deserts…Banana bread, Brownie, Cake. and the worst part is that it’s healthy.
type 5’s will love these deserts to embrace individuality and creativity, and maybe it will be even a bit more fun for them.
The Best Self Conversation Bundle
type 5’s love to get the data, they love to feel competent. they want to feel confident that they know you, and that is why this BestSelf.co conversation bundle is a great gift for them.
Completely functional in their minds but for everyone else just a fun thing to do around the dinner table.
This is BestSelf. co’s most jampacked bundle, with five different conversation decks for all occasions. dates, intimacy, dinner parties, relationships, and so much more.
A Gift Card To A Book Store
This is a simple gift that will mean a lot to the Enneagram 5. Type 5s don’t want to be gifted a book unless it’s one they’ve been asking for. If you were planning on picking one out for them that you think they’d enjoy… might want to just get them a gift card instead. They’d prefer to pick themselves.
