I have some family members that I always get a joint Christmas present because they have a large family and they foster, so you can never be sure you're not going to be leaving someone out if you get everyone individual presents. I try to go for something that's inexpensive but inclusive.

I have some family members that I always get a joint Christmas present because they have a large family and they foster, so you can never be sure you're not going to be leaving someone out if you get everyone individual presents (or if someone wishes they had a present that someone else received). I try to go for something that's inexpensive but inclusive. This year one of their kids is a 6 year old who is blind and has autism. She has recently started communicating/interacting, whereas before she was more in her own world and really only seemed to respond positively to music.

I was going to get everyone coloring books and crayons/colored pencils/markers...but this seems like it really wouldn't be inclusive of the 6 year old. That's along the lines of what I'm looking for cost-wise though, something that would cost around $50 for the whole family.

Music seems like a good direction to go, but I don't want to get cheap plastic toys that make noises that are grating to the adults in the house. She's also interested in textures. If she finds one she likes, she will carry the object around. It seems like the object is comforting to her, it's hard to tell what she will like though. So far I've seen her carry a (very specific, this one only!) piece of paper, a hair elastic and a blanket.

At the moment there are 2 other girls there that are 8 and 4, but it's possible a boy or someone older will end up being there on Christmas. (I will include snacks as an additional family present, so hopefully that would help fill in the gap for an older kid). The other 2 girls seem to really like crafts and stuffed animals.

I really appreciate any ideas anyone has!
