Birthday Favor For Twins
by Bridget Levin, Tastemaker in Residence
Want to know what might be the very best birthday favor you could do for twins? Treat them to solo celebrations.
All their lives they've had to share birthday parties and birthday presents. This leads to constant compromise and comparisons. Instead, split the day or celebrate on the two Saturdays leading up to their actual birthdays and create a day that shows that you see them as the individuals they truly are.
This is the year that you give a gift that gets unwrapped out from under the eyes of their twin and has no remnants of similarity or even-Steven measurement. It's your chance to treat each child to the food and fun activity that they love best.
And don't worry about separation-the first thing they will do when they return is share every detail with their twin.
