I'm visiting the US next month with my family and I have an unlocked iPhone 5 and an iPhone 4. Can I get prepaid sims for both?

Speaking as your friendly local mobile phone provider, of course not, you should use roaming. *Ahem* However, a couple of weeks ago I was in the US with my family and bought one of these for my wife, having it delivered directly to our hotel. She was using it in an iPhone 4s.

It comes as a normal size SIM so you'll need to cut it down. I did it with scissors for her, but it a punch might be better for nanoSIM size in the 5. 

There are a couple of different ones with different amounts of data and length of validity. The unlimited texting allows text to NZ, although if you're both on iPhones you will very quickly reactivate iMessage again anyway.

It's a T-Mobile MVNO so the 4s and the 5 can both pick up a 3G signal, although their 3G coverage is not the best in San Francisco or LA, where we were. Still, it's cheap, and it works just like it says on the box. I recommend it.

AT&T MVNO's. "Unlimited" Data with most of them (Unlimited = about 2-3G per month until they get upset with you)

You should be able to get most of these cards at alot of places in the States and then just go to my website to get the APN Details to Enable Data (http://www.unlockit.co.nz)
