What To Get Your Mom For Mother’s Day 2018, Based On Her Myers-Briggs Type

Finding the perfect gift for the woman who brought you into this world is exactly as hard as it sounds like it is. That's probably why you get her last-minute flowers every year — you can't even wrap your mind around a more personal gift. But there's no reason to be overwhelmed by gift shopping for mom. Instead of stressing out over trying to anticipate what your mom wants, get her something she didn't know she needs. Try to think about your mom in a less literal sense. There are things you can get your mom for Mother's Day if you just base your choise on her Myers-Briggs personality type.

When you use a personality chart as guidance for gift shopping, you end up getting someone a gift that they not only appreciate, but can use and want to use, most importantly. Maybe all of that money you spent on getting your mom flowers was better spent on getting her kitchen gadgets or closet organizers or hobby books? Take the time to look into your mom's Myers-Briggs personality type test and take stock of the features of her character. Here I've made suggestions for each personality type based off of what they might like. Take my suggestion or be inspired by it!
