This post is courtesy of our contributor Kristie…Recently my cousin announced he & his wife were having twins, which brought huge excitement to the entire family! Not only was I thrilled for them, but I was excited to go shopping for baby gifts. Shopping for baby presents is always fun, but the question always is, “what does the family need for the baby(s)”? I started thinking of fun baby gift ideas for twins.
At first I thought get them cute matching outfits, but what if they don’t want to be the parents that dress both kids the same? Then I thought a gift card to a local boutique baby shop – meh…that seemed so unoriginal. Instead of wasting time at the malls, I decided to jump online for unique ideas. I found everything from cute and customized onesies, kids’ collector book sets, designer diaper bags, personalized picture frames, handmade hat sets and so much more. I simply couldn’t decide!
I ended up choosing a matching customized bib set from the Etsy shop Funky Monkey Children. They embroidered the names of the babies right onto the bibs, so not only was it something the family could use to help tell the babies apart, but also save as a keepsake down the road.
Sticking with the useful & practical theme, I added the bibs to a basket full of some of my favourite generic baby items, like stuffed animals, bottles, socks and Aveeno Baby Essentials, such as baby wash/shampoo, Soothing Relief Diaper Rash Cream and Baby Daily Lotion. Aveeno is a brand I trust on my family’s skin so I was confident that my cousin would also love these products for kids kids. The basket turned out to be a very unique and a useful gift and it was quite simple to put together. Best of all, my cousin loved it and thought the present was perfect!
