Assuming they are close in age and you basically have everything from the 1st one. Minus double stroller.
What would you say was a must have? What made it easier with 2?

I liked the bumbo, mine were 16 mo apart, and with the bumbo i could sit baby in it next to me on the table (gasp!) and eat and feed my 16 mo old and watch my baby, and I think it helped him feel included untill he could crawl and be with us in general

The only things that I bought for my second were new pacifiers, new nipple and bottle parts and some clothes... not really a "must have" but like you said, I had everything from the first already. If you don't have any kind of baby carrier, I'd suggest one of them. I wore my second all the time so I was able to get stuff done while still having free hands to take care of my 19 month old.

Mine are 21 months apart I carried my first just in my arms with the second one it was just to much to hold the baby and have my other childs hand. So I needed a baby carrier and to me was one of the most useful things we purchased besides the double stroller which you mentioned.

Swing because it broke when my first was like, 4 months old. And I got all new pacifiers and bottles even though I breastfeed so I'll probably be giving those away. That's pretty much all I've bought so far besides diapers.
