I especially hated it because my twin is a he...)
Thanks! The blankets are sooo soft, I may use the rest of that white yarn and the bright variegated stuff to make myself a lap blanket for TV time this Winter
LOL! I have a sister two years younger than me and a LOT of the time growing up, we were given identical gifts.
Being able to tell whose is whose was very important to us (not to mention the squabbles and sibling battles that were triggered when we couldn't).
My son and his wife have boy/girl twins that are almost 4. I've stayed well away from identical gifts and instead kind of gone with a 'theme' for them. He's into Angry Birds, she's into Dora... they might both receive a stuffed character toy, but it'll be the character they love best.
I'll do the same for my nephew's girls, as well. They are already very different from each other in temperment and appearance. So far the only things I see that they have in common are the same parents, hair color and birthday<G>.
