    Simple: Don't get him what he wants. Get him what he should want.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    They're individuals. What kinds of things do they like?

    If you don't know, I'm sure they'll like anything that has a lot of thought put into it. They might enjoy something homemade.

    Hmm.. What would I like. A great friendship and a day out with a friend, touring the town. If that is not possible.. small gold hoop earrings.

    For a male, digital something or other, but not a picture frame?! lol

    Just get them whatever they like. That is irrespective of type.

    I recommend getting a gift symbolic to the history between you two. It shows you appreciate the relationship you have and kindles reminiscing.

    Alternatively, simply getting something that captures their interest. Anyone feels special knowing you've been paying attention.
    Um, yeah.

    I think it is type related, because our personality defines our type and our personality defines what kind of gifts we like. But of course, it isn't that simple. One can't say that certain type would like a certain type of gift. But it helps.

    It's easy to think that ISFJ would want something useful, especially something related to cooking, as they are very service oriented and cooking is one of the most common interest for an introverted and service-oriented person. But this could also lead into situtations where ISFJs feel that they are nothing more than service-robots for others, and giving such a gifts might actually make them angry... while of course being extremely polite because they've been given a free gift.

    So, in the end.. it's more useful to know the person in question, than to know his/her personality type. But knowing both will get you further.

    Habba love you, but I absolute abhor just being in the kitchen.. Think "The Newest Maxines"! Well, they fit me to a T. lol

    If someone got me a frying pan I would probably clobber them over the head with it. Although, I am female I think I would mind getting a power saw to cut down the neighbor's blackberry tree.

    Seriously though yeah I hate being a servicing robot for others. I can't host, entertain, or waitress if my life depended on it. lol

    Bottle of perfume or jewelry have always been my favorite gifts.. Just no floral smells, hate anything floral. Hypnotic Poison, Dolce Vita, Dune, or even baby powder will do nicely. Oh and so will cocoa butter or some other coconut or vanilla type smell. I will then adore you.

    If I couldn't find anything to buy that symbolised our history together I would make it, an album full of zany pics of us, but an album that looked nice and old, and historic.

    Before we had a history together I would choose a gift with a story behind it that was anchored in history, since my isfj BFF love's all things old.

    Ie, a poetry book so tatty it was falling apart, but was written in a quill pen, over 150 yrs ago from a charity shop.
