Christmas 2020 is not too far away so now would be an ideal time to start shopping around for gifts for your family, especially your teens. We all know how picky teens can be, now add an extra dose of challenge to your gift buying when the gift is for someone with autism.
But whether you are the type to give your loved one a paper clip or an SUV, the following list is an attempt to sort of ease the stress of Christmas time shopping for your teen. The suggestions are quite random, as a matter of fact; some are popular, “trendy”, even; others simply aren’t. Either way, happy holidays—and shop safely.
- Shopping for a Bookworm?
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire(Kindle Edition), Audible Book Edition, or Hardcover Cover Edition is about a young wizard coming of age. It is a pivotal fourth novel in a seven-part sage and he also turns fourteen. Rumors are rampant about one of the characters not seeing the conclusion of the novel, something the author has refused to confirm or deny!
“What is certain is that a novel of excruciating suspense awaits, leavened by J. K. Rowling’s inimitable sense of humor and the burgeoning details of her magical world. Whether it’s taking a front-row seat at the International Quidditch World Cup, or meeting the new Defense-Against-the-Dark-Arts teacher, or finding out if Harry really does start a romance with Cho Chang, fans of the history-making boy-wizard will find their thirst for Hogwarts adventure slaked deliciously…at least for a little while!”
This fidget set is great for anyone who has high anxiety and awesome for autistic teens. This set covers it all: stress and anxiety, multipurpose travel toys, and really covers gifts for all occasions not just Christmastime.
One of the most popular, hence obvious, gift ideas for any age group: an Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, though, Nintendo Switch entertainment systems tend to cost around $450, depending on where they are being sold. and that can be unaffordable for some families. The good news is that you can purchase them for a lot less during late November or early December on Black Friday sales online. You just have to keep your eyes peeled and watch for those sales! You can usually get a pretty great deal for a lot less. Whether it is an investment or gift, you can still save a lot of money, too.
If your autistic teen is into worlds of enchantment, magic, wizardly and otherworldly creature, as well as awesome graphics and scenery, then you will find that and more in The Lord of the Rings Book Set. If you are a member of Amazon Prime, you can also get it in a DVD version.
“The Lord of the Rings is a three-book compilation that includes The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of The King. The book follows the struggles that a simple hobbit, Frodo, and his friends encounter while trying to destroy an all-powerful ring to save Middle-earth. The Lord of the Rings takes place in a fantasy world that is not too unlike the English countryside, though it has characters that range from hobbits to Elven creatures.”
Last, but certainly not least this is a lamp that features life-like jellyfish that glow in the dark and can remain that way for 4 hours, then automatically shuts off. It features 4 different colors: red, green and blue. Ideal for stress relief, feelings of calmness, helps with anxiety, adults and seniors with special needs, autism, and so many more benefits.
Even if these suggestions really didn’t tickle your fancy at all, it is desired that they at least served as inspiration for some gift ideas of your own. Shopping for Christmas presents ought to be fun—and with a little imagination it can be;-).
Enjoy & Happy Shopping!
