But where to start? There are so many great twin baby shower ideas, whether it’s twin boys, twin girls, one of each, or a complete surprise!

And right along with themes comes the decor… from super cute food puns to “double trouble” to everything in between. We’ll talk about them all and help you find the absolute perfect theme, decorations, cake, and more for your most amazing twin baby shower ever!

Some Things to Keep in Mind About Twin Baby Showers

I know that there’s a certain etiquette about when you are supposed to have a baby shower. But, honestly? Throw etiquette out the window when you’re pregnant with twins!

First of all, the later you get in your twin pregnancy, the more uncomfortable you are going to get. I don’t want to make you super scared or anything, but twin pregnancy is really hard.

My best advice is to have your twin baby shower EARLY!! My water broke with my twins when I was just under 30-weeks pregnant; well before the “correct” time to have a baby shower. I think the ideal time to have a baby shower for twins is between 26-28 weeks. Your bump will be adorable but you won’t be completely beyond uncomfortable yet!

Make sure the baby shower is in your budget. There’s no need to go overboard when truly the thought and effort put into a baby shower will be appreciated.

You also want to be prepared for changes. There are risks with a twin pregnancy and you never know what can happen: from bedrest to premature delivery to having twins in the NICU (I experienced all of it!).

What About Twin Baby Showers During COVID?

With the time we currently live in, having a traditional baby shower may be out of the question. If that’s the case, there are work-arounds that will keep everything safe without sacrificing the celebration!

One option is, if it’s something you’re comfortable with, simply keeping the gathering small and socially distanced. No more than ten people is the standard for social gatherings. Instead of inviting everyone you know, keep it intimate with close friends and family. Like the small weddings we’ve all seen, it can make for a very special event!

There’s a trend going around where people do drive-by baby showers. Instead of gathering inside a home, people decorate their driveway and their guests drive up to deliver gifts, congratulate, and receive a goody-bag. It’s a clever way to let people be part of the celebration without sacrificing health and safety.

And of course, there’s always the virtual baby shower option where people FaceTime or Zoom in with their well-wishes! There are some additional benefits to this one: you only have the decorate the space visible in the webcam and you don’t have to prepare extra food!
