Sibling gift ideas, when one gift has to cover more than one kid


We get it! Sometimes you just can’t shop for two or three or seven different kids in one family, whether for budget or time. That’s cool! There are plenty of great ideas for sibling gifts that more than one kid can share. With a minimum of fighting. Hopefully.

And hey, these happen to be great gifts for kids without any siblings, too. Your call!
