Autism Father’s Day Gift Ideas

With Father’s Day approaching, there are plenty of places to find gift ideas. What about Autism Father’s Day gift ideas? I’ve not seen anything specifically aimed at us, especially if you want something “autism themed”. If you are happy with the normal gifts then that’s great, but what is there on offer autism themed?

I’ve had a look about, and found the things I would most like to receive as a gift. I will be honest, though I don’t completely hate the jigsaw piece. It’s not for me, and a lot of the stuff out there has the jigsaw on. I have found some nice bits that don’t though, and here they are. For the record these are just things I personally like, I’m not being paid to advertise them.

My autism Father’s Day gift ideas

Autism parent slogan mug

There a lot of autism themed items over at www.zazzle.co.uk, this mug is my personal favourite. There’s nothing I like better than a cup of tea, so this would be perfect for me, and any other big tea or coffee drinker.

You can get one for £16.55

Dad of an Autistic Jedi t shirt

You can get these t shirts on Etsy, starting at £17.70, and in a variety of colours. Obviously a great gift for any Star Wars fan, and would be very apt for me. Jack likes to tell everyone he is a Jedi!

I.E.P logo

Autism Father’s Day gift ideas

I absolutely love this IEP logo. Over at Red bubble you can get it on numerous things, that are great Father’s Day Gift ideas. Ranging from stickers, prints and canvases, too cups, notebooks and t shirt. Loads of really cool gifts.

They are my favourite Autism Father’s Day gift ideas, like I said they 3 websites all have plenty more to offer is these 3 aren’t for the Dad in your life. Do you have a favourite? Do you know of any other places selling autism related items. I’d love to hear about them in the comments below.

Dad Does Autism

My name is Adam. I live with my partner Natalie, and our 2 children Jack and Lily. Both children are autistic, it is now my mission to show what life around autism is like. Spread the awareness and gain the acceptance that autistic people deserve.

    Great ideas! I have a few friends in my local village who are the parents of kids with Autism. These would be wonderful gifts for father’s day for them.

    This is such a great post and you’ve raised a very valid point about how there isn’t many personalised gifts aimed at Father’s (or Mother’s for that matter) of autistic children. I love the Jedi top!

      Thank you, with the amount of diagnosed people there are now, I’m surprised people haven’t been cashing in on it more to be honest. I’m hoping my partner has taken note of the Jedi top 😂

    Love these and how they highlight how special people with autism are. I love your well-deserved pride in your son – he deserves every bit of it. WE are all special in our own unique way, no matter what label you put on it. THere is no “better” or “worse” – there is just special and unique for us all. And that is your son too – special in every way

    The jigsaw piece is okay with me, though sometimes like in some of the other items on those links, they do make it look really tacky. You picked 3 nice items.
