When considering gift ideas for a twin brother and sister, think beyond matching apparel and duplicate toys. Give a gift for twins that both brother and sister will enjoy. When shopping for gifts for twins, look for toys and other items that siblings can use with each other. Encourage shared playtime by avoiding gender-specific items such as dolls for girls or toy cars for boys. Choose from several gift ideas for twin boys and girls to enjoy together.
Table for Two
Featured as one of Twin Pregnancy and Beyond website's "The Best Toys for Twins," a children's table and chair set is an ideal gift for small twin brothers and sisters. Twin children can sit at their own miniature table to engage in activities such as eating, drawing, playing with play dough and building blocks, putting together puzzles and many more shared activities. When shopping, choose from sturdy plastic or wooden children's table sets.
Another great toy featured on the Twin Pregnancy and Beyond website is a set of walkie-talkie toys. With their own walkie-talkies, twin brothers and sisters can play hide-and-seek or exploring games around the house, in the yard or at the park. Look for simple one- or two-button walkie-talkies for younger twins and more high-tech walkie-talkies with features like volume controls and secret code buttons for older children. Don't forget the batteries.
Books about Twins
Parents of twins might appreciate a gift of books for their children. Listed as one of Twinz Gear website's "5 Unique Holiday Gift Ideas for Twins," twins story books are a great way to get twin brothers and sisters interested in books together. Shop online or at your local bookstore for picture books about twins for younger kids and twin-themed chapter books for older children.
One popular item for twins listed on both the Twinz Gear and Twin Pregnancy and Beyond websites---as well as the Mothers of Twins website's "Must Have Toys for Twins Infants"---a double-sided easel makes an excellent gift for both boy and girl twins. Twin siblings can draw and paint together using a wooden or plastic double-sided easel. For additional convenience, look for double-sided easels that can fold away easily.
Lastly, an ideal gift that requires two children to use: a teeter-totter. Featured on the Twin Pregnancy and Beyond website's "The Best Toys for Twins," teeter-totters offer fun for twins and encourage cooperation between siblings. Teeter-totter toys are available in a variety of sizes and styles, including those that spin as well as go up and down. Shop online or at toy and department stores for plastic, wood and metal teeter-totters.
