Yeah, yeah, yeah. We know. You’re not supposed to type your kids, and for good reason…so why put together a Christmas Enneagram gifts for kids in the gut triad list? Well, because we know you’re going to type them anyway–at least in your head.
Okay, so plenty of Enneagram teachers warn that typing your kiddos can label or wrongly box them into an identity that’s not accurate. Plus, we’re reminded that neurological studies show that our brains aren’t fully developed until age 25, so we’re all still forming our patterns of thought, behavior, emotion, and motivation biases until around then.
BUT the Enneagram is still a tool, and a helpful one in parenting. Especially if you’re a gut-type with an heart-type kiddo. We’d just cautiously and kindly remind you that the Enneagram is sacred, and slapping hurtful labels on people (KIDS!!!) isn’t helpful or kind.
So if you’ve done the work yourself, and have noticed some patterns in your kiddo, we’ve put this list of Enneagram gifts for kids in the gut triad together for YOU. Let’s start with our sweet kiddos who *might* be in the gut triad, or types 8, 9, and 1.
Kids Cutting Board
For the kid who will CUT YOU…just kidding. Really for the kid who loves taking care of their family in the kitchen.
Personalized Metal Water Bottle
For the kid on the go, with all the energy in the land, and a who needs to stay hydrated.
Personalized Lego Tray
For the kid who is going to build and change the world.
Custom Letter Pillow
For the kid who likes all the coziness of home, their room, and needs a fuzzy letter pillow.
Personalized Bath Towel
When just any old bathroom towel just won’t do, he or she deserves a snuggly towel all their own.
Personalized Art Book
For the kid who’s probably got some creativity bubbling, and just needs a little gentle encouragement.
Personalized Piggy Bank
For the kid who counts their pennies, nickels, and dimes and knows exactly how much he or she will earn this year from the tooth fairy and birthday gifts.
School this year is rough, but a set of custom pencils? These are cool…in an Enneagram 1 sort of way.
It’s a clock, which might seem lame, unless your kiddo is very aware of time. Every moment with that kiddos is worth celebrating.
With a combined total of 7 nieces between us, this Enneagram gifts for kids in the gut triad list is pretty special. Don’t forget to visit our Christmas gift lists for the Enneagram 1, Enneagram 9, and Enneagram 8 (but for adults), next!
