Buying gifts for twins is a great opportunity to be creative and thoughtful, as well as practical. With two babies to consider, you don't have to just buy the same present twice, there are lots of ideas out there designed specifically for twins which makes buying for two double the fun.

Here at Mother&Baby, we’ve found 15 gorgeous gifts for twins to help inspire you, whether it’s to celebrate Christmas, a birth, a christening or first birthday. Gifts can range from practical, especially to help a new twin mum, to cute, personalised, or even sentimental to truly acknowledge the remarkable bond that twins share.

Where to buy gifts for twins

While twins might be double the trouble, gifts for twins don't have to be double the cost. There are many options online where you can find unusual and thoughtful gifts, such as, Etsy, Not on the Highstreet and Amazon. We like the gifts which have a personal touch to them, or those which twins can share, or use together. Parents always appreciate practical gifts, especially when juggling two babies, but keepsakes are lovely too and can really help to make their twin journey feel even more special.
