ADHD is a brain difference that many children- both boys and girls have. While it was thought in previous decades that mostly boys had ADHD, new research is finding that girls are just as likely to have ADHD as boys.
My own three daughters have ADHD and I also have ADHD. So when it comes to buying useful gifts for girls with ADHD, I consider myself somewhat of an expert.
If you are looking for useful gifts for kids with ADHD, then you’ve arrived at the right place!

My older daughter likes the way the marble fidgets have a mesh texture and are able to be used without drawing attention to her. This set has so many fun colors.
All of my girls love pop-its. Sure, they are trendy, but it also helps them have something to do with their hands so they aren’t bouncing in their seats during class or chewing their fingers or pencils.
My daughters love Among Us, so they really like this one.
My middle daughter of course likes the typical girly-shaped pop-its.
My youngest daughter likes animal-shaped pop-its.
A tangle fidget is nice for using in class because it doesn’t make a lot of sound and helps keep girls’ brains focused on the task at hand without distracting others. These are our favorites.
Not every girl with ADHD likes to chew, but my middle daughter has high chew needs. She is always chewing on something, so to prevent if from being her school supplies, I send her with these chew necklaces.
Noise-Cancelling Gifts for Girls with ADHD
Noise Cancelling Headphones
For my daughters, a pair of noise-cancelling headphones are absolutely essential.
Sometimes, you need some noise-blocking earbuds. These sensory earplugs do the trick!
I personally love the Flare earbuds because I don’t like how much noise-cancelling earbuds block out everything. The Flare earbuds block out harsh sounds, but you can still hear the world around you.
A sound machine can help combat the frequent insomnia that having ADHD brings.

Books for Girls with ADHD
Sometimes reading is difficult for girls with ADHD. But these book series might tempt even the most reluctant girl with ADHD.
The Ramona Series is old, but it was my favorite series when I was a child. Ramona had ADHD (in my opinion) and I always related to her so much as a child.
My 8 year-old loves the graphic novel Amulet Series. She’s also dyslexic, so the graphic novel format is much less intimidating to her.
The new series Crisis Girls looks like a lot of fun for girls who like adventure.

The new Scarlett and Browne book also has strong adventure vibes.
My kids can’t get enough of the Sisters Series, which is half-book, half-graphic novel.
