While parenthood is a special gift of nature, having a baby also brings numerous responsibilities and expenses. From clothing to feeding, bathing to teething, there are just too many phases to complete and milestones to achieve when nurturing a baby. Now multiply that by three, and you have got a pair of parents, three times more sleep deprived!
While the likelihood of someone having triplets naturally is 1 in 10,000, the possibility still very much exists. And considering you are reading this, we are pretty sure this rare occurrence has taken place in your close social circle. Firstly, kudos to you for being thoughtful enough to get the new parents something useful and meaningful; poor souls are in for a ride.
Secondly, don’t worry too much – you have come to the right place because we have picked these six best gifts for triplets after much deliberation; it’s best you only spend your money and not your time looking for the perfect present.
6 Best Gifts for Triplets
When looking for triplet gift ideas, keep in mind that you’ll have to keep a relatively bigger budget because whatever you buy will have to suffice for three, not one baby. However, we have tried to include gifts from a wide price range. Let’s take a look at our top picks.
Here is a very obvious one that most people overlook while searching for something fancy. Nothing is more frequently needed by three newborn babies (and their parents) than diapers – a constant supply of them can be their parent’s biggest dream! So, please do not worry about getting awkward looks from the birthday party guests. In fact, our advice – wrap them in cute gift paper.
Upon unwrapping the present, parents will be slightly surprised, but soon there will be a big grin on their faces and lots of contentment in their hearts. Everyone is getting toys anyways, do something different! One packet of these Baby-Dry Disposable Diapers carries 234 diapers – boasting a month’s worth of supply!
This a great, budget-friendly, and useful gift option and something the parents can have more than one of. So, don’t worry if your gift matches someone else at the party. The triplets would look really cute in these in their photoshoot, and the parents may not even be willing to take them off just because the bodysuits help identify who is who.
YSCULBUTOL bodysuits are made of 100% cotton, hence super comfortable to wear, and they come in exciting different colors (so you can always buy a set of two or three). Due to a lack of clothing/ accessories designed for triplets, this is one of the best gifts for triplets you can get.
Let’s be honest, even parents have trouble identifying their three very similar-looking babies, and sometimes it can get frustratingly confusing for them. There is no dearth of instances where a mom bathed the same baby twice, or a dad fed the same toddler multiple times. It is a learning curve!
So, if you want to help the poor souls without going out of your way – get them these hemp wristbands they can slide into each of their toddlers’ hands or feet to distinguish amongst each through colors. Since these are typically inexpensive, you can pair this gift item with a pair of bodysuits to make it a deal.
There are not many things in this world designed by keeping the word ‘three’ in mind, but thankfully picture frames are one exception. We know we get it; they are a little vintage by your standards but pictures of three peacefully sleeping babies, all in one place, can bring a smile to any triplet parent’s face!
This 3 5×7 inch picture frame comes with a thick 2mm glass front that can be easily removed and polished. Perfect to be placed on tabletops and desks – this one makes a great gift for triplets.
So, here is the deal. If you are someone really close to the new parents and want to get something very useful and fancy for the toddlers, then Joovy’s Triple Stroller is an excellent choice. Trust us when we say that the parents will be forever indebted because of the many problems this vehicle will solve for them.
Be it going for groceries or a short weekend trip, a stroller for three will always come in handy until the triplets have grown out of it. No doubt, it is a pricey option, but it comes with a parking brake and large storage basket and has been certified to be helpful by many parents with a rating of 4.2.
Another useful gift idea, albeit more for the mom than for the triplets. What makes this a thoughtful present is a space and elegance that comes with the bag because most mothers fail to find the two in one place. While it may not seem directly interactive for the triplets, it is very functional for carrying the toddlers’ belongings (diapers, feeders, etc.) and will make for an excellent gift for triplets.
Our Final Thoughts
This is a round-up of our six best gifts for triplets which are also thoughtful and functional for their parents. They are unique and different from the toys everyone will be getting and will help you stand out from the rest!
