Mum Branded ‘Abusive’ For Getting Her Kids 90 Presents EACH!

A UK mum who came under fire last year for buying her children close to 300 Christmas presents, is stirring up more controversy.

Mum-of-three Emma Tapping spent close to $3,000 on her children’s Christmas presents last year and was branded 'abusive' in the process, after a photo of the massive haul went viral.

Now, the 36-year-old is at is again, but this time she’ll be followed by a TV crew filming Channel 5 documentary ‘Xmas Excess: Parents Splash The Cash.’

She’s promised this year the presents will be even more extravagant, with each child receiving ten extra gifts this year.

"What I love about Christmas is the magic of it, and it’s family time for me, it’s about being with my loved ones and I love seeing their faces when I give them gifts.

"I do go overboard at Christmas, definitely. It’s loads of pressies, loads of food, stuffing your face and just relaxing, having a good old day.


"I think they had about 85 presents each last year. This year they’ve got about 96 each, so they’ve got a few more bits" she continued.

On average, parents will buy their children around 14 gifts - Emma's children are expected to receive 96! While the mum-of-three- admits her children are spoilt at Christmas time, she says they don't splash out on holidays and are pretty normal kids throughout the year.
