Dual Bath Vanity GFCI - Single Gang Boxes or a Single Two Gang Box?


Hi - this is a two part question for a dual sink vanity gfci set up:

1 - should I wire the space to have 1 gfci that also protects the other non-gfci outlet or should I install two gfci outlets?
2 - should I put the outlets into individual single gang boxes, or can I combine them into a two gang box?

1-It is just a matter of choice,
2-One close to each sink.

Thanks. Decided on a 2 gang box due to the need to cut a hole in the block to fit the box behind the drywall, vs. two holes.
