Gift Guide for Adults and Kids With ADHD

More than 6 million children in the U.S. have been diagnosed with ADHD, while the prevalence of ADHD in adults is estimated at 4.4-8.1%. Chances are, someone in your circle of friends and family has ADHD. If you are giving them a present this holiday season, you may be brainstorming for practical, useful, or fun gifts. We’ve got a list of some fantastic ideas to get you started!

For Adults

Vobaga Mug Warmer

For your loved one who often has to reheat their coffee or tea in the microwave, this slows down the cooling speed of their hot beverage. Features Auto Shutoff and 3-Temperature settings. They can use it with their favorite mug of choice. 

Folding Treadmill

There is powerful evidence that exercise is an excellent way to help adults improve executive function. ADHD Expert Dr. John Ratey states, “Movement turns on the brain’s attention networks and eases other symptoms of ADHD, such as hyperactivity. In short, physical activity benefits the ADHD brain by elevating levels of dopamine and norepinephrine, two chemicals linked to attention.” This small, folding treadmill fits under a desk and is ideal for someone who WFH, has a small home, or lives in an apartment building.

Tile Trackers

Available for both iOS and Android, these amazing little gadgets help you keep track of and find things are often misplaced such as keys, AirPods, phones, and bags. Water-resistant, too! Works with Alexa, Google, and Siri. You can get one or two, but the best deal is to get a bundle with a variety of Tiles.

Turnstone Buoy Stool

Alternative seating can help people with ADHD focus better and stay more engaged. This stool has an adjustable height, and can swivel and rock with great comfort—perfect for those who “can’t sit still”. It’s got a handle so you can move it from room to room, and it comes in a variety of fun colors. Some schools and workplaces even provide these as accommodations!

Fidget Ring

Adults with ADHD could also benefit from having a fidget toy, but may want something more low key. A fidget spinner ring helps you occupy your hands without distracting anyone around you with clicking noises or bright colors. Etsy has a huge variety of rings that spin or slide; and they look pretty and cool, too!


For Kids

CozyPhones Headphones

This soft fleece headband with headphones hidden inside is a fun, excellent solution for kids with sensory processing challenges. The headband is soft and washable, has a volume limit 90dB, and won’t interfere with carseat headrests or airplane seats. Plus they come in several different kid-friendly designs!

Animal Finger Crayons

For preschoolers experiencing fine motor delays, these cute crayons are easier for little hands to grip and control. Hypoallergenic and stackable, too. Bring the fun back into coloring, while also building dexterity. 

Dexterity Dough

This all-natural alternative to Playdoh is made from coconut oil, and will never crack or crumble. Various oils are added for meaningful aromatherapy. They come in gorgeous colors and in multi-packs.

Privacy Pop Bed Tent

If your kiddo has a tough time sleeping, this amazing tent will turn their bed into a sanctuary that can shut out noise, lights, and other distractions. Pops open easily and works on any twin bed, even a bunk. Both sides zip open and a mesh system provides proper ventilation.

Crash Pad

Give your little one an outlet for their hyperactivity with this durable, soft landing zone. The velour cover is removable and washable. The pad is filled with soft, low-VOC foam pieces and is free of flame retardants. When not used as a crash pad, it also doubles as a cozy bean bag for reading, quiet play, and naps!
