When it comes to selecting baby gifts for twins or even for triplets or multiples, you should definitely think a bit more practical rather than adorable and cute! The parents will have all hands full with their new pair of bundles and time for other things and activities will be extremely short.
If you ask parents of baby twins what they would appreciate the most, two things top their wish list:
1. something practical for the babies
2. help in the household and with supervising the little ones.
Great ideas for twin baby gifts are listed below - now it's really easy to find the perfect baby gifts for twins and multiples!
A ready-prepared homemade dinner is THE practical baby gift for twin parents and parents of multiple kids. The idea is simple and yet so smart! And it needs not too much extra effort if you have a family of your own. During the first days, weeks and maybe months at home, the new parents most likely won't have much time to cook, Even if they should have time, they'll probably be too exhausted. That's when your (frozen) dinner comes in handy. All they have to do is heat it up and voila sit down and enjoy your meal!
First you need to buy a few food containers which are suitable for food storage in the fridge or for freezing. Then, once you cook a dinner for your own family, cook some more servings and put these in your freezer. Cook and freeze as many dinners as you want for the new mommy and daddy. If you like, put your frozen dinner in a cool bag so the new parents have an insulated lunch bag for their first family trip with the babies. Check out PackIt for very practical cooler lunch bags!
Diapers, diapers, diapers... Have a look at these creative ideas on how to give not just a pack of diapers but a real eye catcher and a little piece of art - really a practical but at the same time very cute baby gift for twins!
With baby twins in the house, diapers will be one of the most needed items in the household and parents will be grateful if they always have enough diapers in stock. Although giving a pack of pampers hardly ever can be wrong, some parents might prefer a special brand of diapers or more ecological friendly diapers. Therefore, if you want to give a pack of diapers, you might check on the parents' favorite brand and on the required size first.
An alternative to giving a pack of diapers, is giving a diaper gift certificate for a local shop or for an online shop such as diapers.com. Having diapers delivered is a great help since shopping with two or more little babies can be very exhausting.
Your diapers make not only a practical but also cute baby gift for twins if you present them nicely. How about making a diaper cake or any other of my diaper gift ideas?

These bottle holders look so cute and - according to (twin) parents and their online reviews - are a real life saver since mummy has got her hands free for other things while baby drinks. The bottle sling just needs to be fixed to the infant car seat handle (they are designed to fit any model). Then the baby bottle is inserted. The baby bottle always is at the correct position for hands free bottle feeding and the baby is encouraged to grab and play with the sling which helps to develop the hand eye coordination. Eventually, baby will learn to hold the bottle on its own. For twins the Bebe Bottle Slings come in a twin pack and they truly are a great practical twin baby gift.
Get one or two for the twins - it will help the parents get their hands free for just a little while.
Get one and the new parents will have their hands free to feed or hold and cuddle with the other twin while one of them is sitting in there. Or get two seats and give the new parents the possibility to have just a few minutes of freedom from time to time. An infant floor seat is absolutely perfect for babies who cannot sit up on their own yet but are interested in their surroundings. Babies can happily sit in a floor seat and watch what's going on or play with toys that you can clip onto the seat.
Decide for yourself whether to get the Bumbo Baby Seat or a Hugaboo (click on the photo for more information).
