    Only the 4 year old. We have often done joint parties for my eldest two and I word invitations from only the child that they are friends with, I'd never expect (nor want) parents to buy two presents.

    This. If I was hosting I would be mortified that guests thought they had to gift to both even if they have no relationship with one. I also wouldn't want to create that kind of expectation with my kids.

    Thanks everyone! Very helpful!

    Everything was made all the more complicated by the fact there is a target where I live and that's it...I wanted to get a board game but there was nothing suitable.

    So I went for a bubble wand and little car for each of them, and then the main man got a little present on top of that.

    The invitation was just a Facebook event to X and Y's Birthday Party so I feel like I have acknowledged them both. It's so hard.

    Now I have to actually make myself go 😳

    It's a kids birthday party. Every one there is with kids and has little chance to acknowledge or talk to anyone else for longer than 2 mins before one of you has to go and attend to the kids.
