Although Block Sender declares that it can block individuals, unwanted junk emails, newsletters, and uninvited email senders on Gmail, plenty of users leave negative reviews, saying it’s at least not as advertised. So, I recommend you to use the free version for a period of time and then decide whether to upgrade it or not.
IOS and Android users now are able to block someone using Gmail app, too. You can download the app or log into Gmail via a browser. The steps have a strong resemblance to the desktop version.

But individuals can use email tracking tools like Gmelius, SalesHandy, Yesware, BananaTag, etc.to see whether their emails are being opened or not. If they send you a couple of emails and none of them are opened, senders will think that you have already blocked their email addresses in Gmail.

The steps about “how to block someone on Gmail from sending you emails?” are not as simple as it looks. Gmail itself can filter useless, harmful emails or senders to spam, which will be automatically deleted after 30 days. But there are still many unwanted emails from someone sending to your inbox. We have to take further manual and more effective measures. No matter you're regular email user or a business owner, you shouldn't waste too much time coping with spam emails.
