Mom life is tough, no matter how many little ones you have scrambling around the house. But when you’re a twin mom, with or without other kids in the mix, the chaos level is considerably higher. When choosing gifts for the mom of multiples in your life, you want to choose something special!
Whether you’re shopping for a mama-to-be, a new mother, or an experienced mom of toddler twins, the occasion demands perfection. Check out our list of adorable clothing, handy accessories, informative books, and many other presents for moms of twins – 21 of the best gifts for moms of twins!
1. Burp Cloths
Oh boy. Is she ever going to need these! Babies make messes, we all know this. But think of the messes that twins are going to make! This mama is going to need all the cleanup help she can get, so let’s lend a helping hand by giving her these adorable burp cloths. Is there anything cuter than tiny bumblebees – and bumblebees plus organic cotton? Perfection.
2. Hooded Towels
The only thing sweeter than a baby fresh out of the bathtub is TWO freshly bathed babes! Mom will love wrapping them both up in these organic, uber-soft, hypoallergenic hooded bath towels for optimal post-bath snuggles. Just be sure to check your cart and order two of these so that nobody gets left out!
3. Board Books
Mama’s little bundles are going to be obvious geniuses straight out of the womb, so providing them with reading material is essential. Roger Priddy’s bestselling books are beloved for their bright colors, sweet pictures, and easy-to-learn words. Junior and Junior will be identifying animals, shapes, and sight words in no time.
Essential Baby Equipment
4. Collapsible Double Stroller
Chances are good that this new twin mama already has a swanky double stroller for parading her cherubs around town. She may not have a super-compact one, though, so an option like this Graco tandem stroller is brilliant. It easily folds up for convenient storage. And mom will need as much convenience as she can get!
5. Nursing Pillow
If there’s one thing that a new mom of twins is going to need its help with feeding those bundles of joy. This rounded, adjustable pillow is firm so that it doesn’t shift around is large enough for two babies to rest upon while feeding. The name might be corny (My Brest Friend? Really?) but the product is stellar.
6. Bouncy Seat
As much as you’d like to be there to hold those little babes when mom needs a break, you realize that she’s going to need other options. Enter this convenient baby bouncer seat. It holds babies from infancy up to 40 lbs, bounces automatically, and has a machine-washable seat pad. One seat would be a great help for mom – two would be better!
Aside from a bouncy seat, high chairs would also be a wonderful gift!
7. Thing One and Thing Two
For now, mom’s twins are tiny, adorable, immobile cherubs. In a few years, though, they’ll no doubt be running in exhausting circles around anyone and anything in their paths. Dr. Seuss knew exactly what he was doing when he named those destructive creatures Thing 1 and Thing 2! Also, photo ops with the babes in these onesies will be priceless!
8. Born First
Sibling rivalry is a real thing. There’s no denying it. Mom might as well embrace it and clothe her babies in these super cute onesies. That they’re made of 100% cotton, have triple-snap fastening (the most convenient kind!), and is available in 6, 12, 18, or 24-month sizes is great and all – but the most important thing is that they’re hilarious!
9. Buy One, Get One
Especially now that she’s a mom of multiples, the mama in your life loves a good deal! What better deal is there than getting two babies for the “price” of one? These cotton onesies will be both amusing and adorable and could even inspire name choices. Perhaps one baby could be named Bo and the other Go. No? What a shame.
10. When You’re Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads
For the mama-to-be, consider giving her this excellent tome of wisdom written by a team of doctors and experts on the subject. It covers everything from what and how often to eat, to how prenatal care for fraternal twins might differ from identical twins. While it mostly focuses on nutrition, readers have said that even the discussion on possible post-birth scenarios was very helpful.
11. Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Twins
She may have already read Dr. Weissbluth’s revolutionary book Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child but your new multiples mama will definitely want to read this new version also. She may think that she’ll never sleep again, but the five ingredients of healthy sleep, the tips for synchronizing babies’ sleep in their cribs, and other info and tutorials will allow everyone to snooze with abandon. A must-read!
12. Best Machine Washable
Babies require a lot of stuff. A LOT. And twins mean even more stuff, which in turn means that mama will need an uber convenient bag to carry all of the accouterments. This classy bag from Ju-Ju-Be isn’t just practical – it has a memory foam change pad, insulated bottle pockets, and color-coded pocket tabs (brilliant for twins!) – and it’s machine washable. A lifesaver.
13. Best Backpack Style
Since we know mama is going to have her hands full of babies or baby-related equipment pretty much always, a backpack diaper bag is a great option. This one has a grand total of 14 pockets (4 of which are insulated), two packing cubes, a wet/dry bag, perfectly padded shoulder straps, and convenient stroller straps. This is not your grandma’s diaper bag!
14. Best Style and Function Combo
The sweet arrow print on this messenger-style diaper bag is uber chic! With 9 exterior pockets and 8 interiors, it has room for everything from spare clothing to spare wipes – there’s seriously a pocket with a slit for dispensing wipes! The best part is that it can legitimately be transformed from a diaper bag into a handbag. Once you’ve tossed out all the crumpled tissues and cracker crumbs, that is.
Clothing for Mama
15. Mama Bear
Everyone loves the adorable “Mama Bear” tees with the bear silhouette, but that’s not quite enough for a mom of twins. She deserves a special shirt that announces her double awesomeness and one that is the ultimate in comfort and style. The flared sides of this adorable tank are both stylish and forgiving – perfect for moms of all shapes and ages.
16. You Can’t Scare Me!
She gave birth to not one but TWO humans. At the same time! She’s seen (or will see) double the tantrums, double the sleepless nights, double the potty-training messes, and double the sibling rivalry. Basically, she’s seen double the chaos that regular humans see. This shirt is perfect for her. It’s also designed and printed right here in the USA!
17. I Miss Sleep
We know, mama, we know. If you can’t be there to make her coffee every morning, to hold a babe while she takes a shower, to help with midnight feedings, or to offer her a glass of wine at the end of the day, you can at least give her this shirt to show you understand. Heck, even if you can be there for all these things, she deserves a gift like this!
Food Subscription Boxes
18. Blue Apron
What every mom of twins really needs is a helping hand around the house. If you can’t be there to cook food for her yourself, order her a few boxes from one of America’s best food subscription boxes. With easy, healthy meals like “Smoky Chickpea Gyros,” “Vietnamese Meatballs and Noodles,” and “South Indian Squash Curry,” mom will be over the moon with gratitude – as will her taste buds.
For the vegan mama in your life, consider a snack box subscription from VeganCuts. Whether you want to send it to a twin mom within the USA, in Canada, or even overseas, VeganCuts has you covered. Each box has 10 treats inside, including goodies like organic coconut milk, peanut butter crackers, gluten-free oatmeal, and almond chocolate chip bars. Seriously, chocolate is the ultimate gift, right?
Even Martha Stewart has a food subscription service! Knowing that the queen of domesticity has approved of the ingredients, meals, and packaging of your subscription is the ultimate in reassurance. All meals are pre-portioned, have uber easy-to-follow instructions, and are organized in “dish bags” for the utmost convenience. Meals like “Creamy Lemon Risotto,” “Sriracha Shrimp Poke Bowl,” and “Steakhouse Burger & Oven Chips” just scream delicious!
The mom of twins in your life will love any and all of these super fun gift ideas. Heck, she’ll just appreciate the fact that you thought of her at all, never mind the actual gift! As an extra tip, however, we’d like to give you this bit of advice: whatever gift you get for her, also buy diapers. Always, always diapers.
We hope you enjoyed our article covering the best gifts for moms of twins!
