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 don’t come naturally to you.

15 Gifts Ideas For The Enneagram 5
Enneagram Coffee: FIVE Roast
I fell in LOVE Enneagram Coffee the second I laid eyes on it.
Enneagram coffee is a coffee roasting company that had 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.”
