If you read my blog then you may have heard me mention that my daughter is special needs. She has ADD and suffers from a few symptoms that make life more difficult. I spent some time exploring special needs gifts this holiday season and I wanted to share a few that I really liked and thought were great ideas for gifts for the holidays.
Kindhearted for special needs is a brand that was developed to share awareness and thoughtfulness to people with disabilities.
Having a 25-year-old daughter that has special needs, the creators have struggled throughout the years with how to make it clear to people that in many situations she needs a little more time, requires a little more patience, needs a little more assistance and compassion than is commonly given. They try to be with her at all times to protect her, however, sometimes that is simply not realistic.
As a result, they searched for a way to help others quickly understand and to be aware that she is special needs without them trying to explain constantly to everyone they encounter. Simply put, that is how Kindhearted was born.
They are excited to offer our products to all people that have disabilities and their families with the hope that these ideas and products will bring awareness, understanding, patience, and their biggest hope of all – people will be kindhearted towards their fellow children, men, women, students, or whoever they may encounter with special needs.
Their line includes shirts, buttons, bracelets and more that all make wonderful gift ideas for anyone who is special needs and would like to raise awareness.
PFP Fidget Toy Set:
This play set includes a mesmerizing magnetic marble maze for focus, a super soft bunny ear for comfort, super stretchy monkey noodle for burning energy, and a fidget spinner with illusion caps for concentration. The toys come in a 3-compartment pouch with a carabiner clip so kids can clip them on a backpack and don’t lose the toys. The set includes 20 Ways to Play with these fun toys. They fit perfectly into a Christmas stocking, Easter basket, or Birthday gift bag. It’s a great gift idea for anyone who suffers from attention. A great set to have on hand.
