What is a good shower gift for a twin mama-to-be?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Greetings!

 

I'll be attending my friend's Blessingway/shower and was looking for advice on a gift for her.  She already has a five year old but has moved a few times and gotten rid of everything.  Her house is kind of small so I think practical over sentimental. 

 

Our circle of friends passes around a lot of baby clothes so she probably won't need them.  She is registered at a composting diaper service so I could always get her a gift certificate if I can't think of anything else.

 

Price isn't a major concern because if I can't swing it I'm sure other friends will go in with me on it. 

 

Was there anything you received or wished you had when you had your twins?

 

Thanks!

My twin nursing pillow (EZ2nurse) was the best purchase I made for the infancy period.

Haven't had my babies yet (or our shower), but besides cloth diapers, I am really hoping someone gets me the twin nursing pillow that I registered for.

If it were me, I'd probably just ask her if there is something special she wants, maybe make a few suggestions like a twin nursing pillow, a carrier/sling/etc., a twin stroller(these are expensive, so don't suggest if you don't want to spend that much obv), a big diaper bag, etc.. If you don't ask (even if you do honestly), I would just include a receipt in case she gets too many of one thing so she can return it if needed.

I know the things I really want are what I listed and I really need carseats which are expensive of course, but I was very particular about which one so you would have to ask about that one for sure! Something else you might include is a promise of a visit(s) after the twins arrive where you will help around the house or cook a meal or take the older child somewhere or whatever she needs you to do. That would honestly be the best gift for me smile.gif

An extra boppy.  I thought one would be enough but now I have one for each baby (three).
