Nice extras to buy for your twins

Expecting twins? Here's a list of non-essential baby products that you might like to have for your twins anyway. These extras are ideal to pop on a twins gift wish-list!


There are plenty of baby products that aren’t essential, but certainly make nice extras. If your finances allow it and you have space in your home, you might find these are worthwhile buys before your twins arrive. If not, however, you will definitely be okay without these on your shopping list.


You might also find you don’t want any of these products for your twins. However, it’s better to know about them than have a last minute panic over whether you’ve neglected a vital purchase.

These “nice to have” items are often the kinds of things given as new baby gifts too, so don’t go overboard on buying these in pregnancy. You can download and print off a checklist of these nice to have items for twins.
