Buying A Baby Shower Present For Twins: Guide
These thirty cute and clever baby shower gift ideas for twins are just the starting point when it comes to shopping for the perfect gift.
Choosing the proper baby shower gift doesn’t have to be a time consuming or stressful task, but there are a few rules that should be followed. If the parents have created a baby registry, you don’t want to stray too far from their suggestions.
Many parents-to-be spend a considerable amount of time researching the products they need and make their selections carefully. Please try and respect their time and effort.
If you do decide to stray from the gift registry, consider buying two smaller gifts rather than one large one.
That way, you can purchase something from the registry and something more of your choice.
This will ensure the parents get a gift they need as well as something more personal and you won’t break the bank by doing purchasing both. Try to balance form with function or practical with whimsical.
One gift combination that you can never go wrong with is diapers and wipes. Just don’t go overboard buying the diapers in the newborn size. The babies will quickly outgrow them.
It would be much better to buy size one so the parents can transition the babies into them smoothly when the time comes. This rule applies when buying clothes. Always opt for a size or two larger than will be needed right away.
Consider The Gender
When considering gifts for babies, always take the gender of the babies, if known, into consideration. Firetrucks and footballs and everything blue aren’t the most appropriate gifts for little girls while butterflies and unicorns and everything pink aren’t the best gift choices for baby boys.
If the parents haven’t announced the sex of their children, choose gender neutral items in white, grey, black, green, yellow or brown.
Consider The Season
Also, think about the time of the year the babies will be born.
Summer babies won’t need heavy blankets or snowsuits while winter babies won’t need swimsuits or sun hats.
Short sleeve onesies and lightweight blankets are always a great year-round choice as these items can be layered to match the weather.
If you are purchasing a group gift, go for larger ticket items that individual gift givers will often bypass because of their shopping budget.
Nursery furniture, such as cribs and mattresses, changing tables and dressers make great group gifts, so do carseats and strollers.
No matter what gift you ultimately decide to purchase, always make sure to include a gift receipt in case an item has to be returned or exchanged at a later date.
Even the most well intentioned gift may run into problems somewhere into the future and making sure a gift receipt is on hand will make the return or exchange much easier on parents who are already pretty overwhelmed.
