When I was 11 or 12, my friend and I had a party together, our bdays are 2 days apart. The party was at her house, it was our friends, and mostly her family, my family didnt live near so only my mom and sister were there for me. We both got gifts, but none of her family brought gifts for me and I didn't think it was wrong, or rude and it didn't bother me at all.
This. I have 2 kids with birthdays a month apart, and 2 more kids with birthdays 2 weeks apart. I do a joint party for each set and make separate invites for each kid and then joint invites for family and friends that know both kids. On the single-kid invites I do mention that it is a joint party, but please do not feel like its necessary to bring a present to the other child.

It has worked great for us so far and saves us a lot of time and money to have 2 parties instead of 4. We always have a much better turnout that way also and makes the kids feel like everyone is there for them!
