17 Gift Ideas for ESFJs

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a self questionnaire that is used to determine the personality type of someone. With this test, people are asked multiple questions that then lead to them finding out which one of sixteen personalities they have. In this test, everyone will get four different pillars of their personality. These pillars are extraversion versus introversion, sensing versus intuition, thinking versus feeling, and judging versus perceiving. 

Someone who has a personality type of ESFJ have these four pillars of personality; Extraverted- Extraverts enjoy engaging with their environment and feed off of other people and the surrounding events.

Observant- People who are observant are very in touch with the present and what is occurring around them at the time. This also makes them functional and practical.

Feeling- If you have the feeling trait, you are more likely to follow your heart and your emotions, as opposed to your head. 

Judging- Judging people are people who feel comfortable when the path ahead of them is well-marked. They will likely come up with a lot of backup plans because they do not like dealing with things as they come up.

As a whole, someone who is ESFJ is known as the Consul. This is a common personality type (about 12% of the population is a Consul type) and they like to set the tone and bask in the spotlight, as well as lead others to victory. They are very supportive of their loved ones and enjoy organizing social gatherings where they can be with all of their favorite people at once!

If you are looking for the perfect gift for the ESFJ in your life, look no further than this list- we have collected 17 awesome gifts that any ESFJ would love!

#1 Scrapbook

There is nothing more important to an ESFJ than the people they love and all the memories that they have with them. 

A scrapbook is a fun gift to give anyone, but an ESFJ will appreciate it even more. 

If you are creative, fill a scrapbook with pictures and mementos from some of your favorite adventures together. If not, you can create a photobook on websites such as Shutterfly or Mixbook. 

And if you know that your ESFJ friend is a bit crafty themselves, give them a blank scrapbook, some paper and some stickers, and let them let their creativity shine. 

This kit comes with a scrapbook, stickers, paper, and tape to make a wonderful gift.

#2 Outdoor String Lights.

A fun outdoor get together is something that ESFJs love. 

It is a time to gather with all the people they love, and they love playing host. And what is an outdoor party without some fun string lights? 

These lights are bright and fun and allow the recipient to set the changing colors up on an app with a timer to create the perfect ambiance for any party. 

These lights are also compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant, making them so easy to use and efficient.

3. Planner

ESFJs are extremely organized, and they like to keep everything in order. 

A planner is a great gift that any ESFJ would appreciate, because it is practical, and it will help them keep on top of all of their many tasks and events.

A personalized planner, like this one from Etsy, will be even more special to them because it is one of a kind, and it shows them how much you care about them.

#3 Jewelry

ESFJs love classic gifts, and you cannot go wrong with jewelry. 

Jewelry is especially meaningful if you find a piece that reminds them of you in some way or has an inside story that you two can share.

 ESFJs do not usually wear big or bling jewelry, so try to go with something more traditional.

#5 Hosting Gift

Since ESFJs love being with all of their family and friends, and they gain energy from social situations, a nice hosting gift will be something that your ESFJ friend will love. 

Look for something as fun and vibrant as your ESFJ, like this mini squirrel serving dish.

Bonus points if you put in some of your friend’s favorite candy or nuts in for them to enjoy as soon as they open it.

#6 Something Homemade

If you are artistic in any way, shape, or form, why not make your favorite ESFJ a gift that you know they will love. 

They will adore all the time that you spent into making something just for them, and they will surely appreciate the effort and creativity that went into it.

If you are not artsy yourself, consider hitting up a craft fair or an artisan site like Etsy to find your bud a bar of homemade soap or a homemade candle.

#7 Desk Organizer

Since Consuls love to stay organized, they will appreciate a unique and one of a kind way that will help to keep their workspace organized.

A geometric file holder will look great on their desk and will help them keep papers, files, and books organized, and prevent them from piling up on their desk. 

These holders are even made of recycled materials, making them great for the environment.

#8 A Sweet Treat

Who doesn’t love something sweet? ESFJs are always out and about, going from place to place, and seeing friend after friend.

If you get your friend something both sweet and savory, they will love your thoughtfulness and be able to enjoy some self-care by treating their sweet tooth. 

If you are able to whip up a batch of cookies yourself, go for it! Otherwise, here is a great version from Etsy.

#9 A Splurge

ESFJs are very practical, especially in their spending. 

If you know that the ESFJ in your life needs a new gadget but won’t splurge on it themselves, and you have the means, they will totally appreciate your splurge. 

Pick up something that you know that they want but would never get themselves, and they will love you!

#10 Personalized Ornament​

When looking for a gift for a ESFJ, practical and personal is the way to go. 

A holiday ornament or decoration that is personal or has a special meaning will be something that they will look forward to putting out year after year. 

They will love the thought that you put into the gift too!

#11 A Rom-Com

ESFJs are hopeless romantics and a romantic comedy movie will get them in all tune with the human relationships and get them to feel all the feels.

Go for a movie that looks at the human experience but is also light and fun. Go for a classic like Sixteen Candles!

#12 A Gift For Their Pet

ESFJs are naturally caring, and they care about their furry family members just as much as their human ones. 

If the friend that you are searching for a gift for is a proud pet parent, they would appreciate a personalized goodie that is inspired by their fur baby.

A pillow with their dog’s face on it, a bag with their cat’s name on it, or a personalized food bowl mat will make them smile for sure.

#13 ESFJ Mug

If you know your friend’s MBTI, then we bet that they are a proud ESFJ and will tell anyone who asks what their personality type is! 

Let them show their ESFJ pride with a fun mug. This mug from Etsy has a list of your friend’s personality traits in fun, bright colors.

#14 Spa Gift Set

ESFJs love being pampered, but they will not usually pamper themselves. People in this personality group, would rather treat their loved ones to a relaxing day than spend time on much-needed self-care.

But if you give them a spa kit, they have no excuses and will finally be able to take time for themselves and just relax.

#15 Follow Your Heart Tee Shirt

People with this personality set are known for following their heart as opposed to their head. Play off that by gifting them a cute tee shirt that reminds them to follow their heart.

When picking clothing for an ESFJ, it is best to go for something that is simple and classic as opposed to something overly trending or eye catching.

#16 Grilling Tools

Since ESFJs enjoy hosting so much, make it easy for them by providing them with a grill set! 

A set that comes with a variety of tools and supplies for grilling, will make your hosting loving friend so happy.

#17 Foosball Table

ESFJs are often naturally good at sports, even if they are a bit modest about their abilities. 

And if they are not a fan of partaking in sports, they may just love to watch sports with the people they love. 

A table-top Foosball table will entertain any ESFJ and all the people that they love to be around!
