A set of twins' first birthday is an exciting time. Twins are unique at this point in time, yet still are developing their own personalities. When shopping for a first birthday for twins, think of getting them gifts that allow them to be their own person. The gifts should be something they don't have to share or something for the parents to use while raising the twins.

Humorous Outfits

There are many cute outfits for twins. Consider getting your birthday twins humorous shirts that are available at local retailers. Some of the shirts say things such as "He did it" with an arrow pointing at the other twin, or Dr. Seuss reference shirts, which say "Thing 1" on one shirt and "Thing 2" on the other. Cute outfits like this will tie the twins together as siblings but still give them a unique identity.

Digital Cameras & Albums

Parents of twins have twice as many moments to capture. Once one year has passed since the birth of twins, chances are the equipment that parents have such as digital cameras and memory cards are heavily used or almost full. Consider buying the parents an upgraded camera to capture those special times in the development of the twins or a few more memory cards so they don't have to worry about not having space when something funny happens.

If you know other guests attending the party for the twins' first birthday, consider asking them to "donate" a few pictures of the twins, so you can all create a collaborative album to present the parents. This will give parents photo memories that they may not have since they did not take the pictures and will also give them a bound collection of their closest friends' first year memories of their children.

Digital picture frames also make great gifts for babies. Since children grow so quickly, you can easily change the pictures as you take them with digital frames. Also, depending on the digital frame you purchase, you can have the picture constantly changing by uploading different amounts of pictures when you program the frame.

Sets of Toys

Many think the best thing to do is to buy twins two different toys, since in fact they are two separate babies with the same birthday. While this is a great idea in theory, it will eventually cause jealousy and chaos for the parents when one baby wants one toy while the other is playing with it. Buy the babies the same toy each. This way, you are avoiding the moment when they will both want to play with the same toy, since they will each have their own exact same toy to play with.
