    an expression or word

    "Today I'll buy two presents xxx one is for my mother and the other one is for my father".

    Hi,
    In the sentence above I'd like to use a expression in place of "xxx" so that the text make sense. I would not like to use the ":", but a word or an expression that connects the 2 parts of the sentence.
    Can someone help me, please?
    Thanks.

    Re: an expression or word

    To be honest, I would not use any linking word, but either make it two sentences, or use a comma: ...presents, one for my mother and the other for my father

    Not really, apart from "and" which would make an awkward sentence.
