When your kids are invited to a twins birthday party, do you buy them each a present or 1 combined present?

I asked their mum this and she said it is upto me.

If they are into the same things I see nothing wrong with a bigger shared pressent and maybe 1 little thig each. If they dont like the same things a pressent each

DS is friends with a set of twins - when I asked their mum she said that she preferred a present each for them as they are individuals & already have to share so much.  Not sure if this is how most feel or not.

ETA - the girls themselves also like getting a present each

A present each-they are individuals. not a unit.

Are your kids invited to one of the twins party, or both of the twins party?

If the invite says 'John & Jane are invited to Anne's Party', then it's one present.

If the invite says 'John & Jane are invited to Anne & Tom's Party', then it's two presents.


Well that's what I would expect as a twin mum.

A present each.

I'm not a twin but my sisters birthday is two days after mine. We had a joint party once or twice but never joint presents (unless a big item from our parents, and only if we were happy to do so)

Present each unless the parents specify something bigger they would like together.

There are two people celebrating their birthday so I would take a gift for each of them.

My two are happy to get a combined present.  However, they are definately in the minority from my experience.

For school friends, unless you know them well - a present per child original.gif

Then it's 2 presents or one big one they can share.

One each, unless it's when you are actually invited to one kid's party eg my DS was invited to a party for X - it wasn't until I got there that I realised that X was a twin, but is in another class from his brother so each twin got to invite his own friends.

I'm a twin mum and a small present each would be great.

Twin mum here too. Actually its my girls birthday party tomorrow. original.gif

A small present and card each is best. A share present can cause fights or worse. One of my DD's was really upset when one of her friends turned up to their first proper party with friends and walked right past her and said happy birthday to her twin sister and gave her a huge present.
