So you got invited to a baby shower for twins and not sure what gift to take. Twin baby gifts can be easily made into a gift basket. You just have to get creative to know what items you will be including in your basket.
Choose the Container or Basket
You first want to choose the container which will hold the supplies. This container could be a gift basket but just remember it is for two so it needs to be big enough to hold all of the supplies.
It can really be anything that will make for a great decorating gift. This can be a box that you can decorate, or even make it out of the supplies such as pampers or baby clothes. Perhaps a small hamper or re-useable storage container. Whatever you decide, make sure there is room to store enough gift items for two.
Plush Animals for Infants
Next, you want to include some kind of plush animals as baby gifts. It will make the gift basket look much more enticing, and the babies will absolutely love it.
This can be any stuffed animal that you choose. The majority of gift baskets contain a stuffed bear but you can get creative. You want it to be soft and cozy so the twin children can have it next to them as they get older.
You can also dress the stuffed animals in the onesies that you are also giving the children. This leaves room in the basket for more things or you can choose a fitting outfit for the stuffed animal that represents the gender of the baby. You can dress up the plush toy in girl or boy outfits. You want to make the outfits match in some kind of way to represent the babies being twins.
Personalized Baby Gifts
To make the gift basket more unique for the babies, you can have it personalized. If you know the names already, you can choose to include them on the gift basket. This can be on the stuffed animal clothing or even on the outside of the container. The print can be done in pink for a girl and blue for a boy to keep it traditional.
You can also choose other colors that will match the style and theme of your gift basket. If the children have already been born, it would add a special touch to the basket if you include the day they were born. If this is a baby shower gift (prior to birth) then keep the personalization more general.
Next you want to include items onto your basket that the children can use. If your basket is not made out of pampers, you can place some as the pad or mat on the gift basket, similar to how you would put grass in an Easter basket. Next you can include two baby bottles, pacifiers, and a rattle toys for them to play with.
You can even place baby bibs on the plush animal for the children. Make sure to include a baby outfit as well as booties and baby cap to make the gift basket complete. You can include a few more items of your choice to make the gift basket even more special.
You can place the basket in a clear plastic bag and tie it with colorful bows that represent the gender of the baby. Placing the container in the plastic bag is not necessary though, you can also tie the stuff together with tie wraps. This will allow the gifts to stay in place as you are delivering the basket.
These are just some ideas to make great twin baby gift baskets. They will be loved at baby showers, and the mothers will be grateful for the thought and time you put into the gift. At the same time, it will provide some of the necessary items for those two new babies.
