    Default Parents of twins- best baby shower gift?

    I'm looking for a baby shower gift for my friend who is having identical twins. What do you think would be the best gift? I'm thinking something practical and thoughtful, trying to steer clear of clothes and nappies etc.
    FYI, the sex of the babies is a suprise.
    Your advice/ ideas would be much appreciated.

    I have twins and good food in those first weeks while trying to breastfeed two is great. Could you give her vouchers for home cooked meals delivered by you or frozen meals to stack her freezer (if you are a cook).

    The absolute best, most practical gift I was given was a stack of white handtowels. I was given a hundred (but less would be great too). I use them for EVERYTHING! Some people use the cloth nappies which you could find easily and these would be great too. I found the rectangular shape of the hand towels was great on the nappy table etc. I still use over ten a day and my twins are 14 months old. Having quite a few of these means I don't have to wash every day, don't worry about stains and can leave them soaking.

    I got a voucher for a massage and beauty treatments. It was good to just relax and be pampered. Mine was for a place in Brisbane that had an on site creche, but a mobile one would be nice too.

    Twin feeding pillow
    Definitely home cooked meals- if you could commit to say one a week that you would drop off on a set night for say 10 weeks it would be an amazing help
    Clothes in larger sizes- I found I was given a lot of newborn sizes but it all petered out once we hit about 00, and it is so expensive buying two of everything
    If mum will be trying to breastfeed- a really nice aluminium drink bottle, a batch of lactation boosting cookies or a membership to the ABA
    A local AMBA membership

    Great ideas! Thanks for your help. I think I'll research the cleaners/meal delivery. Pretty certain she's got a feeding pillow already. The burp cloths are also a good idea

    Default Best thing to do

    I think the best thing to do with that is to buy a baby gift that a boy or girl can use. Like baby bibs, baby thermometer or baby backseat mirror. These are a little expensive though but I'm sure this will be very useful for them.
