A friend of mine recently found out she was having twins; double the joy and double the work! While she was being feted with an amazing Dr. Seuss-themed Thing 1 and Thing 2 baby shower, it occured to me that there must be an array of gifts for twins with a geeky twist.
As luck and the internet would have it, I found an overabundance of fun and hilarious geek-themed twin products that left me wishing I was having multiples of my own. Here are some fabulous ideas for geeky twin gifts:
I just about died when I saw these “CTRL C” and “CTRL V” onesies! Computer geek parents will find these absolutely hilarious. Meanwhile, older relatives at a baby shower might not get the joke. Just saying.
It may be stereotypical that twins are mischievous, but Hogwarts’ most entrepreneurial twosome don’t do much to break that cliche. Fred and George Weasley are always up to something, but always have each others’ backs. These adorable Fred and George decorative pillows even bear their famous initial sweaters and would be the ideal finishing touch on a geeky nursery.
These boy/girl twins have been upstaged by their father in comic book movies so far. However, with the next Avengers movie, everyone will finally be introduced to Magento’s Marvel offspring, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. These two mutants are super kawaii in chibi form, and this print would be a fun addition to a shared sibling kids room.
Luke and Leia are another pair with an infamous father, but these two are heroes through and through. On her blog Professional Twin Mommy, Maggie Martin details how she came up with these Luke and Leia costumes and it’s so easy, you’ll be wondering how you didn’t think of it first! The simplicity of it this so brilliant that you’ll think it’s a Jedi mind trick.
If your little twin gamers are busy battling Koopa Troopas, these are the perfect hats for you. Hand-stitched, these oversized Mario and Luigi hats not only make fabulous costumes, but they’d be great for everyday cosplay!
These NES Controller A and Controller B tees are more than just funny, once you realize that these twins probably are the ones who really control the household! Gen X parents will love these handmade tees that are a nod to the old-school gamer days.
