Need advice..
 
Before my Mom passed just this past March but while she could still do good embroidery I keep her busy with patterns & printed on fabric thru my printer.
My question is: I want to gift my 3 brothers pillowcases with some of her work. But 2 of them are single. Do I gift them 1 or 2? Oh, patterns are mens night shirts & womens gowns...

I would gift them with a pair each. Queen sized beds are standard, and even if they sleep in singles, having a change of pillowcases is always nice to have.

Unless you are buying twin sheets most sets come with two pillows. Even in my twin bed I have lots of pillows. You could always make shams or throw pillows. But just because they are single now, doesn't mean they will always be single. There may come a time if they are using one pillow now that they will use two later on.

Give them each a pair - if you can.

Is there a night shirt on one pillow and a woman's gown on the other? Or are they mixed? Kind of odd pillowcases for single men. Maybe suggest that it's okay if they put them away for the future?

I want to give couples 1 lady gown & 1 night shirt. Should I give single bros 2 night shirts? Or pick another pattern & them 2 of same? I'll try to post pic...

I know it's odd but the night shirt for guys & gown for ladies... Nope neither bro will probably ever marry again.. that's why I needed advice as what to do on the bachelors... maybe completely different pattern?.
