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.

#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.
