Here’s our selection of the best gifts for twins babies…

1. Bubbleliss Baby Hand and Footprint Kit, £19.97 – best keepsake gift

Larger than most on the market, this kit has space for two hand and foot imprints, and for two individual photos, making it ideal for little twins.

With the easy-to-prepare, non-mixing clay, you can have the twins’ handprints and footprints created in a matter of minutes. We also like that they can be re-moulded several times until you’re happy that they are perfect.

2. Letterfest Personalised Twins Story Book, from £23 – best special gift

Age: 0+

An adorable personalised book where the story is all about the twins. This book can be personalised throughout and can be designed to include family members like mum, dad or siblings. 

With beautiful hand-drawn illustrations of an elephant family, this is a book parents can read to their twins from baby to toddler.

Available in hard or soft cover, it can also be printed with a personalised message from you, making this a really special gift

Available from: Not On the High Street

3. Spotty N Stripy New Baby Twins Personalised Print, £25 – best for nursery decoration

This adorable keepsake print can be personalised with each twin baby’s name, birth date, time and weights. The washing line design is really simple but super cute with the twin baby grows and little socks.

We also love that you can personalise the colour scheme to match their nursery, with lots of different options available.

Available from: Not On the High Street

4. Peanut and Piglet Twin Changing Bag, £68-74 – best for an essential gift

Having your hands free to tend to not only one, but two precious babies can be tricky. This cleverly designed changing bag is larger than a standard bag, so there’s enough room to cram all the daily essentials in without it being too heavy and cumbersome to carry.

It can be worn as a backpack, across the body or clipped onto the buggy. Great for parents who are already overloaded!

It comes complete with a wipeable changing mat, two easy-reach cup holders and multiple pockets labelled ‘peanut’ or ‘piglet’. Perfect for keeping the twins’ things separate.

Available from: Peanut and Piglet and Amazon

5. BabyBjorn Soft Balance Bouncer, £136.99 – best functional gift

Suitable from: 3.5kg to 13kg approx

Twins cannot be held as often as single babies. This ergonomic baby bouncer provides a safe and comfortable place for one twin to rest or play, whilst allowing you to hold the other.  Our writer had two of these with her twins and says they were an absolute godsend.

The natural rocking motion is perfect for soothing crying babies when your hands are tied up elsewhere. They are very easy to bounce with your feet; you can be holding or feeding one baby whilst bouncing the other.

And they work really well for tandem bottle-feeding. It folds down flat for storage/travel so takes up a lot less room than other bouncers — especially when you have two!

6. Heinz Twins Outfits, £34.03 – best for a novelty gift

Size: Newborn to 18 months

Instead of buying the twins the same generic clothing that everyone else will buy, why not break the mould?

Twins come as pair and so do these cute little vests. One without the other just doesn’t make sense, but together they’ll bring the biggest smiles to onlookers’ faces.

Not only are these vests super-cute, but they are 100% premium cotton and you can opt for either long or short sleeves, depending on the season.

Available from: Etsy

7. SparklyPrints Twins Milestone Blanket, from £35.59 — best unique gift

Who doesn’t love seeing pictures of twins month-by-month as they grow? This cute little blanket is specifically designed with twins in mind and adds the perfect background to capture their rapid growth.

The blanket can also be personalised with the twins’ names, making it a very special gift.

It’s also made from soft, anti-allergenic material, so is gentle on their skin. Parents can also use it to double up as a play mat!

Available from: Etsy

8. Cook Meal Bundles/Gift Voucher, from £10 – best gift for new parents

This is the ideal gift for new parents to twins who will be busy looking after two little ones. Give them the gift of great food ready to pop in the oven/microwave at their convenience.

Meat eaters and vegetarians alike will love these delicious, nutritious frozen meals.

Choose your own budget with a gift card, or to make it completely hassle-free, you can buy meal bundles that are sent directly to their address.

The vouchers can be spent online or in store and there are 87 shops across the UK.

9. Dinky Toes Nappy Cake, £69.99 – best thoughtful gift

If one thing is for certain, it’s that twins will get through a truckload of nappies in their first year, so what better gift than a beautiful cake made up of nappies.

This delightful gift is packed full of essentials to get any twin family off to a good start. It includes baby blankets, muslin cloths, bibs, vests, scratch mittens, booties, bottles, brushes and combs, teddies and some travel-sized toiletries.

There are different colour options available to suit different gender combinations, and a neutral one for those who want it to be a surprise.

Available from: Dinky Toes 

10. Kinder Valley Twin Pillow, £19.50 – best multi-purpose gift

Specifically designed with twins in mind, this multi-purpose pillow can be used for feeding as well as a tummy time and sitting aid as they grow.

The neutral design will suit most nurseries and we also like that it comes with a handy removable cover that’s machine washable. 

Available from: Asda and Precious Little One
