There is a fixed order for double object pronouns, or rather two fixed orders, depending on the verbal contruction:
1) In all verb tenses and moods except the affirmative imperative, object, adverbial, and reflexive pronouns always go in front of the verb,* and must be in the order as shown in the table at the bottom of the page.
Je montre la carte à mon père - Je la lui montre.
I'm showing the letter to my father - I'm showing it to him.
Je mets la carte sur la table - Je l'y mets.
I'm putting the letter on the table - I'm putting it there.
Ne me les donnez pas.
Don't give them to me.
Il leur en a donné.
He gave them some.
Ils nous l'ont envoyé.
They sent it to us.

|2) When the verb is in the affirmative imperative, the pronouns follow the verb, are in a slightly different order, as shown in the table at the bottom of the page, and are connected by hyphens.|
Give it to me
Sell us some
Find it for me
Talk to us there
Send it to him
Word order for affirmative imperative
|moi / m' |
toi / t'
In affirmative commands, the pronouns are placed after the verb, attached by hyphens, and are in a specific order. With all other verb tenses and moods, the pronouns are placed in a slightly different order in front of the conjugated verb.
