I have twins boy/girl who are turning 5 years old in March.  They are both in the same preschool class and I was wondering do I send out the invites to their party with both names or do I send all the girls in the class with my daughters name on the invite and all the boys in the class with my sons name?  I am not sure what proper etiquette is and I don't want people to feel obligated to bring a gift for both my children..Any comments/thoughts would be appreciated!

Anytime we've been invited to a twin birthday party, the invite has had both children's names on it and we've brought two presents. I've never seen it any other way. 


There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.

Thanks so much for your feedback, I just feel bad cause I don't think its fair for someone to have to bring a gift for both children if their child only really only play with 1...thought I could just send out invites to the boys for my son and the girls for my daughter, but people who I've spoken with have said the same thing that its a joint party therefore both names should be on invite...Thanks again!!

Same here, the invitation has always come from both children, and we bought two presents (after wondering if I should get them the identical gifts or not.!)

My children are 8 (B/G twins) and the years they had parties we sent out a joint invite (but separate thank yous).

They rec'd mostly shared gifts which are nice for us and less expensive for the party goers.
