Ok ladies, I want to give my ENTJ step-mum a present for Christmas and want it to be a (reasonably priced) awesome present that isn't a generic piece of shit and possibly something that she will find useful (as productivity is kind of your thing).

Soooo any ideas?

Ask her to marry you... and then when she looks at you wierd go... oh.. you're taken.. try to make an awkward joke and pretend to lighten the mood and then when that (as planned) doesn't work, walk away sulllenly.

Useful or priceless. I've never been a big fan of receiving clothes as a gift either, not sure if this is a trend among ENTJs or just me.

Wouldn't that be a bit weird to ask your step-mom? XD

@MegaTuxRacer was very helpful, and succinct. long version:

She likely has something she hasn't had time to get. Get that. Find her fave food/wine/consumable.

Like, I'd like a frame for my diplomas that are sitting in envelopes. I'd like shoes cause I never have time to shop for them. I'd like babysitting for 2-3 hours so I can do something just for me. I'd like to have someone take away all the shit I've put in boxes to give to goodwill. I'd love chocolate liquors, good wine, good beer. etc.

What sort of things does she like? What are her interests?

I'm not a huge fan of it. It depends on the clothes though, if it's something that I'm never going to wear in public I don't mind. If it's something that I have to wear in public, please don't. I have a set of colors that I wear, a certain style and I don't really move beyond that.

A well-made journal type notebook (like moleskine). They're affordable and always useful, get something that would fit into her usual size of purse. I'm partial to unlined kind myself, but graph kind is nice too. Not a fan of the normal lined ones-- making tables in those is a bit of a pain.

I don't like food gifts because who knows when I'll be on a diet. Also I have allergies/intolerances and randomly decide not to eat something/ go on a specific feeding pattern for a period of time (it's currently no-dairy).
