Ahhhh, the holidays are here.* Christmas trees, Hanukkah menorahs and fruitcake... LOTS of fruitcake! It’s most wonderful time of the year. Well… everything is wonderful EXCEPT when it comes to choosing gifts and making time in your crazy schedule to fight your way through traffic, find parking (that finally is so far from the store, it might have been faster to walk!) and worm your way through the crowds to find the right gift still in one piece and in the color and size you want!
It can be a struggle finding the "perfect gift.” You want to get something they’ll love, something they’ll talk about for years… something that will make their life better. Somehow, a sweater just doesn’t cut it. Oh, and you don’t want to break the bank for this perfect gift!
ADDA to the rescue! If your loved one is an adult with ADHD, offer them a truly life-changing, unforgettable experience by helping them attend the ADDA Conference in Orlando next summer. ADDA has created a downloadable certificate you can print and fill out yourself (much less tacky than throwing a few bucks in a card!) It also makes an excellent stocking stuffer! Offer the gift of an ADDA membership (they’ll benefit all year long AND get a great discount on the Conference!) It’s a rare gift that packs that much punch into such a small space! Give the gift of the 25th Anniversary Conference and you’ll be providing a once in a lifetime experience.
Everyone wants the freedom to be themselves and to be understood and accepted just as they are. The ADDA Conference is often described as the very first place an adult with ADHD feels at home. By offering an ADDA gift certificate, you will provide your loved one with the opportunity to spend a long weekend with other individuals JUST like them. The sense of community and camaraderie is hard to explain but just ask someone that has been to the ADDA Conference.
Your loved one will meet and learn from some of the top adult ADHD experts in the nation: Coaches, psychiatrists, therapists, psychologists, researchers and other specialists. He or she will also have the opportunity to network with other passionate ADHD folks from all over the globe and make lifelong friends.
I won’t say this is the "gift that keeps on giving” as it’s an overused cliché (Yikes! I did just say it!) but I will say you’ll be providing the perfect gift your loved one will be talking about long after 2014 passes. And if you live with this ADHD adult, consider giving yourself an unforgettable gift as well. Come with your loved one to the 15th International Adult AD/HD Conference. It will change your lives.
