Triplets are a particularly rewarding gift. But while parents of triplets get three times the charm, they also get three times the bill, which can get very expensive over the years. You can help these parents out by giving a thoughtful and creative gift. There are a variety of online stores and niche products available that cater specifically to multiple babies.
One idea for a fun and practical gift is matching outfits. You could purchase three of the same, but then you might have a hard time telling the babies apart. Get three outfits that are the same in design, but different colors for three same-gender triplets. Or, for triplets of different genders, get three outfits with the same theme and colors, but a different design for girls and boys. The matching outfits should be the hit of any baby birthday party or shower.
Give baby and parent supplies with a triplet theme. Today, online companies make whimsical triplet-themed gear, such as T-shirts, baby bags, bottles, burping blankets, beanies, socks and stroller accessories. Creative slogans like “Three Peas in a Pod,” “Baby 1 of 3, Handle with Care,” “Three’s a Charm,” and “Got Triplets?” always make people smile. Themed supplies also make a good gift for mom and dad, who can sport a T-shirt that says something like, “Proud Parent of Triplets” or “Party of Three.”
Triplet-Designed Activity Equipment
New parents of triplets will need to purchase all the baby gear times three. Be the ergonomic gift giver and get them a piece of equipment designed for multiple babies. Three seat strollers are a very useful and necessary piece of equipment for active parents of triplets. There are also specially designed high chairs, cribs and activity tables with three baby seats.
Any traditional gift is appropriate; you'll just have get three of them. You can purchase three of the same blanket and have each of the babies' names embroidered into their blanket. Or, for older children, create a gift basket and pack it full of toys and supplies; everything times three. Three dolls or toy cars, candy bars, coloring books, hats, socks, and so on.
Adult triplet friends or family members are more difficult to shop for. Go with something sentimental like a picture of the three of them together. Frame it three times over and give each of them a framed copy. Create an gift basket and include a bottle of wine, a wedge of fine cheese and a knife set for each of them. Or give them each something handmade. This shows that you put time into each of their gifts.
