1. Matching Gifts

Nothing is cuter than matching gifts for twins! It’s also practical and offers an easy way to be fair to each twin. Although I didn’t have twins myself, my niece was born within months of my oldest son. When they’d play together, they always wanted the same toy. My friend who has 2-year-old twins can confirm this! Buying matching gifts means each twin has the same gift, avoiding arguments. 

Here are some matching gifts to consider:

  • Adorable Matching Mobiles: Gift the new twins in your life the cutest matching mobiles. Hang them over the twin’s cribs to create a visually harmonious nursery. Choose from our wide selection of high quality baby mobiles. For boy/girl twins, try our matching pink and blue ocean or jungle themed crib mobiles. Or, opt for matching Mickey and Minnie mobiles.
  • Coordinated Bedding Sets: Matching bedding sets helps keep a unified theme in the nursery. Plus, they’re adorable! Gift neutral options, or choose girl or boy themes.
  • Nursery Lamps: Two lamps in the nursery make it easy to manage late-night wakings. Place the lamps on opposite sides of the nursery or near each crib. Plus, lamps make an adorable nursery decor item that will enhance the theme.

2. Practical Gifts

Twins are double the smiles, but also double trouble, in the most wonderful way. Parents need two of many baby gear items or one piece of gear that will meet the needs of twins.

  • Dual-Use Gear: Efficient and convenient, dual-use twin gear gets the job done. For example, try a twin lounge pillow. The twins can relax or enjoy tummy time side-by-side. Another option is twin carriers. A parent can carry one twin in the front and the other on their back. For parents wrangling two little ones at once, these items can be true lifesavers.
  • Functional Nursery Decor: Help the parents-to-be create an aesthetic nursery that also gets the job done. Some ideas include storage boxes for stashing diapers, clothes, toys, and gear. Or, purchase some adorable changing pad covers. With twins, the chances of the changing pad getting dirty are double, so parents will appreciate having a few back-up covers.
  • Crib Sheets: Sleep in style with adorable, comfortable crib sheets. Opt for matching sheets or choose a variety of styles that will help parents remember whose crib is whose.

3. Comfort Gifts

Comfort is essential for babies. Help create a soothing, cozy space for the new twins in your life with these twin gift ideas.

  • Soft Blankets: Ultra-comforting, soft baby blankets are ideal for all babies, including twins. As a mom, I found swaddles to be essential for helping my babies sleep through the night. So, consider gifting a few swaddles.
  • Soothing Sound Machines: In the womb, babies enjoy the sounds of their mother’s heart, as well as sounds from the outside world. They are so accustomed to background noise that silence can be unsettling for babies. White noise machines can play a variety of sounds, including calming music. Playing white noise during sleep can be especially helpful with twins, as it can help one twin continue sleeping if the other wakes up and cries.
  • Baby Pillows: Create a cozy nursery with baby pillows for the rocking chair or glider. As they grow, the twins can also begin playing with baby pillows or cuddling with them.

How to Choose The Right Baby Gifts

To choose the perfect gifts for twins, consider the nursery theme. 

As a mom of three with experience in both hosting and attending baby showers, here are some key factors to keep in mind when choosing gifts for twin babies:

  • Parental Preferences: Consider the parents' lifestyle and nursery theme. You can use the nursery theme as inspiration for finding the perfect gift. For example, if the theme is Disney, you might pick out a lamp or crib bedding set that matches.
  • Quality and Safety: Choose high-quality, safe items that meet all safety standards.
  • Practicality: Opt for gifts that simplify daily routines and save time. If the parents have a baby registry or if you know them well, you might even ask them what baby items they need.
  • Growth Potential: Select items that can be used as the babies grow.
  • Space Considerations: Be mindful of the available space when selecting larger items.

By keeping these points in mind, you’ll ensure your gift is thoughtful, practical, and appreciated.
