Baby Shower Gift for Twins

baby shower gift for twins

This was the baby shower gift for twins I put together for my friend who is having twins next month. She is having a boy and a girl, but this can idea certainly be used for same-sex babies: put together a blue and green bin for 2 boys or a pink and purple bin for 2 girls.

baby shower gift for twins productsI went shopping and bought a bunch of coordinating baby products in different colors- a pink pacifier and a blue one, blue bath wash and pink baby lotion etc. The “girly” colored products went in a plastic box with a pink lid and the “boyish” colored products went in a plastic box with a blue lid, like so:

I figured I could spend $5 on a gift bag and tissue paper, or I could spend $2 on cute bins that the mom can reuse again! I had a few sticky chalkboard labels that I stuck on the tops of the bins and I wrote each of the babies names on them.

    Darling! What a great idea to use storage bins. (I want to go find me some of those now, I love containers!)

    My friend is due with twins (a boy and a girl) next month too! It could be a different person, but do you know Jamie Dwiggins?

    Love this so much!!!!!!! I have a baby shower to go to in the near future I will use this idea thanks for sharing. You can never have enough containers!!!!!!!!!

    What a great idea! I'm sending this idea to my sister as she has a neighbor that is having twins and was looking for a shower gift idea. Just have to share…I came across a new baby book called Dear Baby, What I love about you! It's about why we love babies and at the end you get to sign it so the child can see who enjoys reading to them. It's really adorable!

    Those are really cute – and I think giving mom something she can use again for storage instead of a gift bag is a great idea!!

    I love this idea, which sparked another idea for me. I think I will buy a couple containers and through out the year when I am couponing and find great deals on baby items I will buy and put in the boxes, also I get many free samples in the mail, but never ask for the baby items. Well I will be asking for them now to put in the containers and then when I need them I shouldn’t have to spend a whole lot to fill them! Thanks
