Gifts For Autistic Adults – Navigating Neurodivergent Joy

Since 1970, April has been Autism Awareness Month. Over the years, the information and reception of autistic and neurodivergent adults have changed drastically. In many countries, the shift has been a largely positive one. Thanks to platforms like TikTok, many people with autism have found a community to lean on, learn from, and support them as they become more comfortable being transparent about their journey. This blog aims to help you in selecting gifts for autistic adults. However, it’s impossible to do that without mentioning some potentially uncomfortable truths.

To begin – I will answer the question you’re probably asking yourself. What are my credentials to speak about gifts for autistic adults? I’ve spent over 9 years diving into the world of gifts. Pouring over the cultural dos and don’ts of dozens of countries. I’ve done this as an autistic woman myself. If you continue reading, you’ll find a general guide. A starting place, if you will, to help you navigate the wild and wonderful world of neurodivergence.

Back To School: How You Can Prepare For The New School Year

Summer is coming to an end, and it’s time to prepare for another school year. However, back-to-school planning may look a little different this time around. As a parent, not only must you ensure that the kids stock up on stationery, but navigating post-Covid anxiety is now on the to-do list as well. And, considering that most learners have not experienced consistent in-person schooling since March 2020, ‘first day jitters’ suddenly have a whole new meaning. 

But, fret not. There are simple ways you can make back to school a success! Start by reminding yourself that returning to school is a good thing, especially if you’re a student. School provides an environment for vital social interaction during our developmental years. And during the midst of the pandemic, these interactions were almost non-existent. As the world attempts to jump back into routine, we’d like to help you do the same. Read below as we share a few tips to help parents, students, and teachers conquer a new school year.

The Origin of Father’s Day: Celebrating Dads Around the World

There’s no point talking about the origin of Father’s Day if we don’t first talk about the man in question: dear old dad. He may have questionable style and insist on doing things the ‘old-fashioned way’ (no matter how often you tell him that there’s an app for that now). However, he is ‘dad,’ you adore him, and you’re a part of him. In fact, science proves that, genetically, we are more like our fathers than our mothers! So yes, we’ve all got more dad jokes in our DNA that we’d opt for. 

But, besides their somewhat loveable absurdity, fathers play a vital role in shaping and preparing us for the real world. This means that being a dad is one of the most important jobs one could ever have. And, you’d have to agree that anyone who takes on this role deserves to be celebrated. That’s why we’re diving into the origin of Father’s Day and how it’s celebrated around the world. Plus, we have unique gift ideas for you to make this Father’s Day the most memorable one yet, no matter where dad may be. Read below to learn more.
