What do you do if both your DC put the same thing on their christmas lists??

Ds1 has just written his list and put something on that DS2 has put on his. I had already decided to get it for DS2 (as I know he will play with it more).

It is a fairly expensive thing and was going to be DS2's main present. To complicate matters I cannot think of anything to buy DS1 as his main gift so it would actually solve that problem but it is unfair to give DS1 a gift that I know his little bro will play with more isn't it?

nothing wrong with a joint present if try both want it and it's something that can be shared or played together

It depends what it is really...

That's a toughy.

Can you say what it is? Could you stretch to two of them? Or get one larger one to share? What age are your DCs? Are they young enough to be swayed in their choices?

Joint present.

Joint to share and a smaller present each

It is the Disney Marvel Infinity xbox set so no point in getting 2 of them. I got DS1 the pixar version last year and DS2 plays on it a lot whereas DS1 rarely does hence why the superhero version will be perfect for DS2.

Ds1 is 8 and DS2 is 6 btw.

I'd make it a joint present. Definitely don't need 2 of the same thing as presumably you only have the one console to play them on.

I am thinking of maybe getting it as a joint present with a couple of extra figures each as individual gifts.

Give it as a joint present

Joint present as they play it together and get a few extra characters if available with one of them being one that DS1 would like the best?

Defo joint pressie-extra figures each sounds good

Label it to X and Y then get them each a couple of smaller gifts as well.
