I can but quote the Mishna B'rura (694:3); CYLOR for a practical ruling:

והנה השתי מתנות צריך ליתן משלו ולא משל מעשר וההוספה שמוסיף יוכל ליתן משל מעשר

i.e. (my own translation, which you shouldn't rely on):

and, lo, he must give the two gifts [to paupers] from his own and not from maaser's, and the addend that he adds he'll be allowed to give from maaser's
