DD has been invited to a party at the weekend. Invite is from DD friend and friends sister as it a joint thing with birthdays being close together. AIBU to only want to buy a gift for DD friend and not the sister too?

We did a joint party for my son and his friend and it was 95% joint friends of them both. Those that were friends with just one of the birthday boys only bought for the boy they know. Worked fine.

However, they weren't family, not sure if that makes a difference

I doubt the child will do a taly TBH, kids get way too many presents at parties IMO, I wouldn't mind (or notice)

DS has been invited to a joint party with two of his Reception classmates. He is only friends with one (I couldn't pick the other out of a line-up).

I have bought two presents, but I did get them at Morrison's where they are two for £8 at the moment...

As your DD is going as an invitee of the friend and not the sister then i would only buy one for her

Dd2 is having a joint party with her bf this weekend. I would not expect gifts from the bf's friends who not joint friends if that makes sense?

Could you buy a board game that they can play together and mark it for both of them? Plenty of shops have them in stock incredibly cheaply at the moment.

Actually I don't expect presents at all and often wish that their friends could just come to the party and have a lovely time without feeling obliged to get gifts...

Board game is a great idea!
