Special considerations when purchasing gifts for twins
Keep in mind that you don't necessarily need to purchase two of each item for your twins. Some items can be given (as they often are with other siblings) to both children to be shared, such as a playhouse, wagon, board games, electronic game systems, etc.
It may even make sense to purchase different smaller items for younger twins (like a stacker and a sorting cube) that can then be used by both at different times.
Of course, there are times when it makes perfect sense to purchase the same item for your twins. Use your best judgment and look to your children for cues as they get older.
You may also want to share your thoughts and ideas with family and friends who purchase toys or gifts for your twins to help avoid any misunderstandings. Most people are not sure what is appropriate and will appreciate your guidance.
