Holidays are coming up, not sure what to say when people ask "what do you want for holiday?" Or know a neurodivergent person you want to get a gift for, but they already have an assortment of fidget cubes and a weighted blanket? Here are 3 ideas for affordable gifts (and things I'm going to ask my relatives for lol)
Musicians earplugs. These are made to not distort sounds like ordinary earplugs, also they are reusable and less bulky than headphones. $15-30 will get a pair for everyday use that helps to lessen background noise and cope with overlapping sounds.
Silly putty, slime, anything squishy/soft and pocket sized even a tiny stuffed animal keychain, a scarf or headband, anything that can be carried around conveniently for sensory needs.
Gift cards for convenience services such as Uber, Lyft, Postmates, Instacart because executive dysfunction and sensory or processing overload makes everyday tasks such as getting to work/school/appointments, grocery shopping, etc much more difficult and requires more significant effort.
