When should you have a baby shower for twins?

There are no hard-and-fast rules here.

But often, mamas-to-be (or their best friends or family members) plan baby showers for the first half of the third trimester — about 28–34 weeks.

But when it comes to a twin baby shower, you might want to set an earlier date.

Twins are more likely to be born before their due date — often between 32 and 38 weeks.

Future twin moms are also more likely to be diagnosed with conditions like preeclampsia, which can mean that they’re put on bed rest at the end of their pregnancy.

Even without complications, the chances are that the mama-to-be is going to be tired and pretty uncomfortable by the time the last couple of months of pregnancy roll around.

So the best time to plan a twin baby shower is probably between about 24 and 30 weeks.

There’ll be a beautiful baby belly to show off, but mama will still have enough energy to enjoy herself.

Baby shower themes: twin baby shower ideas

The sky’s the limit when it comes to twinning theme ideas.

You can play with words that have a double meaning (😊​​😊), colors that blend together, or themes inspired by pop culture.











Looking for inspiration?

Here are some of the best twin boy and girl baby shower ideas.

Have fun!

1. Twin-kle Twin-kle Little Star

The perfect theme for an evening baby shower.

Decorate with gold stars and moons on a deep navy background for a perfect blend of classy and cute.

2. Two Peas in a Pod

This theme, in honor of your little ones being snuggled up together, uses fresh green colors, and it’s a great choice for a rural or rustic twin baby shower venue.

You could even use fresh produce in your decorations.

3. Noah’s Ark

Because the animals came in two-by-two — just like the future twins.

4. Two-wit, T-two-o

Speaking of animals, twin owls could be a great choice for your baby shower invitations and decorations.

5. Tea for Two

Afternoon tea is the ideal way to pamper the mama-to-be.

Put on the ritz with vintage china, tiny sandwiches, and decorations fit for a queen.

With flowers and soft draping, you could even reference the iconic photoshoot where Beyonce announced her twin pregnancy.

6. Sugar and Spice

Looking for twin girl baby shower ideas?

This one could be a winner, letting you embrace a feminine color palette while steering away from pastels. And when it comes to “everything nice,” point your guests in the direction of an epic dessert table.

7. Taco Twosday

Holy Guacamole, it’s twins!

Traditional teatime isn’t everyone’s jam, so invite your friends and family for a colorful afternoon of Mexican food and party games instead.

8. Ketchup and Mustard

And if bold and quirky is your thing, why not choose a classic food combination as the foundation of your baby shower?

Twins go together like peanut butter and jelly, bacon and eggs, or milk and cookies.

9. Purple

Boy/girl twins on the way?

If the thought of blue and pink doesn’t do it for you, or if you’d like to add a gender reveal element, you can literally mix things up by basing your decorations on the color purple.

Twin theme ideas from popular culture:

Still searching for the perfect theme for a twin baby shower?

Let’s turn to film, TV, and literature.

10. Thing One and Thing Two

Embrace the whimsical cartoon world of Dr Seuss and base the baby shower decorations on some of his most iconic (and mischievous) characters: Thing One and Thing Two from The Cat in the Hat.

11. Mischief Managed

Speaking of mischief, the loveable twin pranksters Fred and George Weasley give you the perfect excuse for a Harry Potter themed baby shower.

12. A Galaxy Far, Far Away

And when it comes to iconic twins from pop culture, Luke Skywalker and Princess/General Leia Organa mean that a Star Wars-themed shower could be out of this world.

13. Fred and Ginger

The mama-to-be might not feel like dancing, but the famous double-act of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers will let you embrace the glamour of Old Hollywood.

14. Woody and Buzz

In need of twin boy baby shower ideas?

Woody the cowboy and Buzz Lightyear don’t always see eye to eye, but this Pixar Pair love each other deeply.

To Twinfinity and beyond!

15. Mario and Luigi

In honor of everyone’s favorite Italian plumber brothers, this is another unconventional baby shower theme that might be worth exploring.

We’re not saying that you have to have a Mario Kart tournament with your guests, but as non-traditional baby showers go, it would be pretty memorable.

Twin Baby Shower Games

What’s a baby shower without games?

When you’re planning a twin shower, you can take things to expert level:

1. The Double Diaper Game

Putting diapers on dolls is a common baby shower game.

You might even have done it blindfolded.

But for your twin shower, try instructing the guests to put two diapers on two dolls — one with each hand!

2. Celebrity Twin Match

Your friends could probably match pictures of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, but there are lots of celebrity twins they won’t have heard of.

Scarlett Johansson has a twin brother, Kiefer Sutherland has a twin sister, and Ashton Kutcher and Vin Diesel both have non-identical twin brothers.

3. Name Suggestion Box

It can be tough enough to name one baby, let alone two.

So set up a box for name suggestions, and see if any of your friends can give you some inspiration.

You could even have a prize for the most meaningful (or hilarious) names.

What do you get twins for a baby shower?

Many of the usual baby shower gifts are perfect when twins are on the way — you may just need to double up.

Here are some ideas:

  1. Diapers and wipes: Because if a single newborn can get through 10 diapers in a day, imagine what a pair can do.
  2. Matching outfits: Matching babies will always be cute. Just keep in mind that twins are often born smaller than singletons, so you might want to choose a smaller size.
  3. Meal deliveries: No one wants to shop for groceries or cook dinner when they’ve just had a baby, so give the mama-to-be some vouchers for her favorite takeout or a subscription to a meal delivery service.
  4. Twin nursing pillow: Specially designed [https://amzn.to/3Pvt6Wu) — and keep mama’s neck and shoulders pain-free.
  5. A stroller organizer: Like this one, which will let her keep everything (including her all-important coffee) at hand when she’s out and about with the babies.
  6. Twin baby monitor: Most video baby monitors only have one camera, which isn’t super helpful if you have two babies. This one from VTech has two, so mama can have some extra peace of mind when her little ones are in another room.

Happy prepping!
