    My older sisters are twins, I’m an Irish twin (11 months apart) with my younger sister and am expecting twin girls within the next few weeks. The ‘older girls’ and ‘younger girls’ as we were often called always got grouped together by others- friends, teachers, almost everyone, except our parents and brothers. I have 6 siblings and luckily, my parents, especially my mom, made a big deal about acknowledging our individuality and taking each kid out separately for a ‘special date’ from time to time.
    I think getting grouped together all the time is just something that’s going to happen and you have to pick and choose your battles. Receiving one invitation for twins is probably a question of saving $, and is not that big of a deal, in my opinion. The same goes for relatives buying them similar presents for their birthdays, especially while they’re still little kids. I think bigger problems lie at school with teachers who might overtlý compare the two, or who might blame both for one child’s mistakes. Which is likely if your girls are interested in the same activities and sports, even if they’re in different classes.
