Well, it really depends on a lot of factors-like the personality of your twins. But, the short answer is no, you don't need double of everything. 

Of course, 2 car seats and high chairs. When the boys were newborns, we put them in the Arms Reach Cosleeper together. It was easier to nurse that way. When they got older, we put them in their own cribs. 

My twin boys LOVED their swing, so we definitely needed two of those. Bouncy chairs, not so much, they weren't big fans. I wish we had 2 exersaucers. 

That's all I can remember for now (My boys are 6 now and that first year was a blur LOL )

Don't buy two of everything at first..one bouncer, one swing, etc. Then you'll see what your kiddos like. I had one that liked a swing and two that hated them.

Plan to have two baby beds even if you plan to cosleep them...they will eventually start rolling and then you'll need too.

Two carseats of course!

I loved the bouncers and we ended up with 3 of them...

Loved the bumbos (we even bathed in them, just don't fill the tub up as they will float)...

Zippered footies are a must.
