I agree; I love both too.
The level editor features in Super Mario Maker are so accessible, and stepping into the shoes of a game maker is a lot of fun, but for me the fan-made stages in SMM just don't compare to the thoughtful, creative levels the professionals make.
There's a fair amount of thoughtful, creative levels in Mario Maker too, they're just harder to find. The level searching is definitely something I hope gets improved in Mario Maker 2.

OT: Definitely Mario Maker 2, I enjoyed the first one a lot more than any normal 2D Mario.
