I mean that it can small vs medium vs larger material possession/s vs donation/s vs experience/s.

Just wondering about it because this happened again for our birthday (just recently occurred). More with my twin sister and less with mine closest friends.

My twin sister and her became more closer after her mom got her initial breast cancer diagnosis. I mean its was within the yr that my mom got her initial ovarian cancer diagnosis. At the same time my mom was an rn (registered nurse) as well. In which it helped a ton as well. So, then they are much doers more anything else. But the friend is more into giving back to others as well and she also still babysits as well. At first it was during her grad school yrs. She is still doing it and even after graduating from grad school, getting a job, and beyond. By the way our dads are pretty much alike in terms of beyond their behavior/temperament. My twin sister was one of her maid of honors at her wedding, earlier this yr. At the same time my sister was one of the 1st to meet her husband when they first met up again and beyond.

I mean it can be beyond either making/ buying. It happened once before, five yrs ago or something like that when she gave me a gift certificate and in which I loved of course, but of course got jealous of what she beyond did/gave to my twin sister. In which it was photo album for my twin sister, but got help from of our mom at the time. After that until this yr she was pretty much good at it being equal more than anything else. As far as I can remember. This yr she made me a spirituality charm bracelet and in which I love of course. But then got my sister experience with her. In which I somewhat got jealous because where it is going to take place more than anything else. Also, she made both of us Carrot Cupcakes as well. In which were equal in portion/serving size.

Hi, Jessica!

I think it's ok to do this. Give two different gifts to twins as long as they are (or seem to be) fairly equal money wise. I knew twins that actually preferred not to get the same gifts. They hated dressing the same too. So I think it depends on the twins and the person giving the gift. How well they know them and know what they like. That said, giving the same gift or similar, is always a safe bet!
