2015 Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide for Special Needs Kids

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  Time to celebrate Jesus Christ’s birth and time to spend with family and friends.  If you are like me you probably have already started shopping right?  Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday received many of my coins, but there are still a few items I would like to get Max.  I created a holiday gift guide for those who are unsure what to get their Super, Mighty, and Blessed children.  Special Needs, Disabled, Developmentally Delayed, Autistic, Down Syndrome, and other heath challenged children shouldn’t be left out of the gift giving.  Below is the 2015 Super, Mighty, & Blessed Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide for Special Needs Kids.

Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide 2015-2

The one rule I would recommend when choosing a perfect gift for your special needs family member or friend is to ignore the recommended age on the packaging.  Most toys have recommended age limits and since many special needs kids have delays choosing toys that best suite them where they are is essential.  Always remember to get a gift receipt even for online purchases, and don’t forget the free gift wrap during this season.

Sensory Toys/Tools

Sensory toys are perfect for those children who love the senses sight, sound, touch/feel, etc..  These toys are especially good for those autistic children, children with oral/motor delays, and those who need to feel more secure.

Music/Sound/Light Toys

All kids love music, sound, and light up toys no matter how annoying they will be to the parents.  These toys should keep them entertained for an hour or longer.

Books

Books are essential for all kids especially kids with already  known developmental delays.  I love reading to Max and he is more alert and responsive to books with bright colors, characters, and songs that I can sing to him.

Mobility Chairs/Tables/Therapy Toys

As Max gets bigger, I have to find creative ways to have a safe place for him to sit during the day as well as get him moving and stretched.  These are great therapy toys, tables, and chairs that would work for children who are not mobile.

Outside Play

Outside play is something that I want to explore more during the Spring time with Max, and we all know how it feels to get some fresh air once in a while.  I think these are creative ways to get your special needs child outside safely, while having fun.

Developmental Toys

Developmental type of toys are essential to help strengthen that curiosity and strengthen those gross and fine motor skills.  Our physical therapist is really working on Max’s head control and wants us to do more floor time with him so any mirror or toys at that height work best.
