10 Gift Ideas for a Highly Sensitive Father

An alternative is a Mathmos lava lamp, the brand we have in our home which I highly recommend. (Amazon UK link)

Another gem by Elaine Aron. The Highly Sensitive Person’s Workbook is a collection of exercises designed to help identify highly sensitive traits and then support the reader to live more effectively with these traits in mind. (Amazon US link) (Amazon UK Link)

6. Noise Reducing Headphones

If the highly sensitive father in your home is sensitive to noise, then headphones that reduce audio stimuli is something he’ll surely thank you for the next time the kids are over-exercising their vocal chords…… (Amazon US link) (Amazon UK Link)

7. A Kindle Reader

Reading empties an overfull or filling bucket. With an e-reader dad always has a book on hand to switch off and get some quiet time.  (Amazon US link) (Amazon UK link Here). You can also combine this gift idea with numbers 3, 4, 6 and 10!

8. Kindle Unlimited Plan

If you want to treat dad to unlimited reading and listening on his Kindle then the Kindle Unlimited plan is the perfect gift. (Amazon US link) (Amazon UK link)

9. Eye Mask

Some HSPs are particularly sensitive to light. An eye mask solves this, whether it’s for those regular plane journeys, or simply a good night’s sleep at home. (Amazon US link) (UK Link)

10. The Power of Sensitivity

This is a book written by Ted Zeff. Reading the success stories of other highly sensitive people is extremely motivating and empowering. This is a collection of positive stories collected from HSPs across the globe. (Amazon US link) (UK Link)
