This gorgeous Skip Hope Dash messenger bag is great for mom and dad! With 11 roomy pockets, there is space for everything your babies need, and a zippered compartment for mom and dad’s personal items. The bag includes Shuttle Clips, allowing it to quickly and easily convert from a shoulder bag to a stroller bag. When attached to the stroller, you can leave the shoulder strap attached or remove it for a cleaner look. The Dash includes magnetic closures throughout and a comfy shoulder pad.
Ethan and Emma Stroller Organizer ($49.99)
This stroller organizer is a bestseller for a reason – it holds everything a parent could need while out and about. Parents already have so many things to carry – keys, phones, water bottles, diapers, wet wipes etc, and when you have twins, triplets or more, the number of items seem to multiply. The Ethan and Emma Stroller Organizer fits most strollers of all sizes, and is a great alternative for a diaper bag.
Twintrexx Twin Baby Carrier ($129.99)
The TwinTrexx twin baby carrier is an ergonomic twin baby carrier that allows mom or dad to hold their wins in five different positions. Made of 100% cotton this twin baby carrier is super soft and comfy- for both the carrier and the babies. Cushioned in all the right places for maximum comfort, it can be used in various positions, front/back, side to side or as single carrier for both mom or dad. There are also external pockets for storage, and is easy to put on and take off. The carrier holds up to 25 lbs.
Each pearl in this beautiful sterling silver bracelet represents a child. What triplet mom wouldn’t like this pretty thoughtful gift? You can customize this ModernExpression piece by adding initials or numbers, choosing a birthstone color for the Swarovski pearls, and the length of the bracelet.
We at Multiples Illuminated created this comfy “I Have Twins, What’s Your Superpower?”T-shirt for moms of twins (we also have a collection of tees for Dads, as well as parents of triplets). You can customize the color of the shirt and pick just the right size for your gift recipient.
Father of Twins Club T- Shirt ($22.95)
We’re not forgetting the dads of twins! This exclusively designed T-shirt is 100% cotton, pre-shrunk to fit properly and is available in three colors (black, white and grey).
Now children can find out how tall they are and keep track as they grow, along with those rascally twins from Jungletown, Chimp and Zee. This sturdy height chart has a ribbon hanger and is sure to brighten up any child’s bedroom. A sheet of 50 stickers (kept safe in a pocket on reverse) means different siblings can keep track of how tall they are at a given time. The chart can easily be personalized with photographs inserted into the five “windows,” and is packaged in a gift box with printed spine.
This specially designed “I Have Twins, What’s Your Superpower?” hardcover journal is great for recording down the children’s milestones and any other musings a twin parent may have. The 128-page journal is available in ruled, graph or blank pages.
Parent of twins and an iPhone user? This is the perfect gift! This slim “I Have Triplets, What’s Your Superpower?”case/ skin can be customized for many iPhone models, and you can choose a snap or tough cover and is extremely durable.
Our book Multiples Illuminated: A Collection of Stories and Advice From Parents of Twins, Triplets and More is the perfect gift for parents of twins, triplets and more, especially for those in the stages of pregnancy and the early years. Multiples Illuminated dives deep into the world of raising multiples with beautiful stories and helpful advice. In it, you will find essays on infertility help and hope, finding out and coping with a multiples pregnancy, stories of labor and delivery, stories from the NICU, breastfeeding best practices for multiples, and surviving the infant and toddler stage.s Multiples Illuminated is a compelling collection of stories from writers and parents of multiples, as well as expert advice that is a must-have for all parents and grandparents of multiples.
Dads tend to get lost in the mix of parenting websites and books. The focus is always on Mom – infertility and trying to conceive, pregnancy, labor, and delivery, the first months and years. It is because mothers ARE pivotal in this journey, but so are fathers. Which is why we highly recommend Joe Rawlinson’s book, Dad’s Guide to Raising Twins: How to Thrive as a Father of Twins. Read our full review of this book here.
Most parents try to treat their twins as individuals, but most unwittingly undermine their best intentions because they lack a practical set of guidelines for raising emotionally healthy multiples. Drawing on her unique experience as a twin, the mother of twins, and as a psychotherapist, Dr. Joan A. Friedman outlines the seven key concepts for helping twins develop into self-realized, unique individuals and offers parents specific strategies for each stage in their children’s growth. From how to set up the nursery to handling playdates and extracurricular activities, from deciding on same or separate classroom education to encouraging grandparents and other family members to think beyond the pair to see individuals, Emotionally Healthy Twins will become the standard reference for parenting twins.
We do hope that you find this guide useful as you shop for your loved ones this holiday season!
