I opened this thread here to find out how NTs get over the whole presents panic. I've already had the lectures from SFs, NFs and so forth. I'm surrounded by them!!
Besides the standard NF present usually doesn't come up to my standards that I hold myself to. The only person to really hit the button bang on was my ISTJ friend (this is in recent recollection).
As for something practical, if only my friends and family were practical. There's only me and my father who are NTs. I know two STs and one's easy to buy for the other, a female, is a pain. After that it's pretty much all NFs. And NFs without specific hobbies that they haven't already indulged themselves in and bought everything they want for!
The perishables idea, that could work. I'm resistant to it however. Personally I rarely buy anything perishable that costs more than absolutely necessary as I kinda figure it's the fastest way to chew through your money and have nothing left to show for it.
Further thinking required....
