    Default What would be a good gift to get an ENFP or an INFP?

    What would be a good gift to get an ENFP or an INFP?

    I was thinking maybe something fantasy genre related like the Lord of the Rings books or maybe something where they can use their creative and artistic skills.

    Something that shows you know them very well, that hints at something only you two share.

    Yeah, genaric doesn't work unless you know they like it. I would go for sound equipment or a good pair of binocculars. I know an INFP who would prefer a gift certificate for Snap-On tools. I also know an ENFP who would prefer new lenses for his camera. I'm pretty sure all three of us would be "ok" with just money so we could get it ourselves though...

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I'd go for something that compliments their artistic side, or any kind of creative hobby they might have, which most xNFPs seem to.

    At the very least, make sure it is something you know they are interested in. For instance, I can't stand Lord of the Rings or fantasy stuff, and if someone bought me that it would show a complete lack of knowledge of who I am. If you don't know them very well, then that's what gift certificates are for

    Yeah if you aren't sure, I would just ask. Personally I like just seeing that someone cares enough to go through the effort to get me something, and that the something is what they think I would find useful/amusing based on what they know about me. What it is doesn't matter quite as much (but since you aaaasked... )

    Food works wonderfully especially if you know they like it. Take their favorite food and buy it for them en masse.

    Yep food is the root to my heart too . As long as it is good, tasty, and there's lots of it.

    Otherwise get them something you know they need. I know INFJs are good at this and observant.

    I think asking is okay and probably a good idea with an ENFP. We love communication as much as anything. Like the art of mind reading and surprise is unlikely to win out over getting something we want/need.
