Planning a baby shower twins can be great fun. Here are some awesome ideas for organizing the perfect twin shower.

Twin Shower Theme

Theme ideas for a twin baby shower are endless, from “two peas in a pod” (or three, if it’s a triplets baby shower!) to Dr Seuss’ “Thing One and Thing Two”. Just think about anything in twos, pairs or even things that go together.

You may like to start with what sort of cake you would like then base your theme around that. Many people choose specific colours as part of their theme, and there is no need to stick with traditional “pink” or “baby blue” — get creative!

Gift Ideas

Here are some great gift suggestions for parents expecting twins…

A “diaper cake” is a fun gift, and you can make it yourself. A diaper cake also makes a great center piece for the shower.

In addition to using diapers (which is essential when building a diaper cake), you can include things like:

a)  Twins baby clothing and face cloths.
b)  Treats for mom in the middle of the diaper cake is a really nice surprise. Maybe her favorite chocolates, a voucher for a pregnancy massage, or paid subscription to her favorite magazine.
c)  Baby lotions and soaps.
d)  And top it off with a rattle or booties.

Some other great gifts for the twins parents-to-be depend on how much you want to spend. For instance the bigger ticket items are a great way to help out, like a twin stroller, twin nursing pillow, cribs or car seats. Keep in mind mom(s) or dad(s)-to-be may have preferences, so one idea is to give a voucher; you could even take them shopping.

Things like rompers or sleepers are always a useful item and you can get some really cute ones, even rompers aimed at twins, like “she did it” and “he did it” printed on them.

Games for a Twin Shower

With games at a twin baby shower you can basically twin up any game you want, but here are a couple of ideas for you:

a) Play celebrity twins and match the babies to the celebrity, whether it be just names or by using pictures.
b) A pairing baby socks race, the fastest time wins.
c) Another race, place diapers on twin baby dolls – but you must be blindfolded. 

There are many other things to organize for a twin baby shower, like invitations (which you can decide on based on your theme). Shower favors could be something “paired”, like a pair of earrings. And food can be made all in double like mini double chocolate muffins or two cheeses cheese board.

Whatever your theme, enjoy your twins baby shower, and have fun planning it!
