Whatever gift you give to somebody with Attention Deficit Disorder will be welcomed if it helps them access their creative self and special interests. A gift that can help with the negative symptoms of ADD will also be appreciated. Many of these needs can be addressed with gift certificates that you can purchase locally or online. When you give a gift certificate, be sure that you understand all of the terms of the certificate. You also need to make sure that the company is reliable and will still be in business when your giftee wants to redeem the certificate. Happy gift giving!
