With the holiday season right around the corner, you've probably given some consideration to what to buy for your twins, triplets or other multiples. It can be tricky: Should they all get the same thing, or one big gift that they can share? Tell us how you handle the gift-giving in this week's Parent's Poll about gift-giving preferences.
1. All for One, One for All: The best option is one gift that they can both/all play with.
2. Unanimous Uniformity: Each child receives their own gift, but they both/all get the exact same thing.
3. Different Strokes for Different Folks: Each child receives a unique present, based on their individual preferences.
4. Variations on a Theme: They each receive similar items, perhaps in different colors or varieties, but basically comparable equivalents.
