Mum Branded Selfish After Sharing Photo Of Huge Mound Of Presents
| Last updated
A mum-of-three has sparked outrage after sharing a photo of a huge pile of presents under her Christmas tree - again.
Emma Tapping, from Isle of Man, has made headlines over previous Christmases as a result of her lavish gifting.
The 38-year-old has previously admitted that she does 'go overboard' at this time of year, spending thousands of pounds on hundreds of presents for her children.
This year appears to be no different, with only the very top of the Christmas tree visible from behind the gigantic present pile.
The mum of dreams (if you're a kid) shared the photo with her 15,000 followers on Instagram, but many people did not respond favourably to the picture.
One person said: "So many people have nothing you should donate them.
"Personally I think this is ridiculous who needs this many it's just selfish."
Another agreed, commenting: "Pretty sure you're losing sight of what Christmas is actually about with all those gifts.
"Might just be because I have 11 under my tree, but this photo is just disgusting."
Others were less critical though, arguing that the mum was entitled to buy as many presents as she liked.
One person said: "I think she should spend her hard earned money on what she wants - who are we to judge."
Another said: "If I had that kinda cash best believe my kid would be so spoiled."
But even those who had no strong feelings either way about the excessive gifting still had some very valid questions to ask.
One person asked: "I have a serious question that I need an answer to, where the hell do you hide it all? I don't have a fraction of that and my kids have found them."
Another asked: "Do you start buying at the beginning of the year? Please share your ways."
Another simply said: "You must have the patience of a saint to wrap that lot."
While the pile may seem exceptional, it isn't for Emma. Indeed, her colossal Christmas piles have gone viral in previous years and she even featured on Channel 5 documentary Xmas Excess: Parents Splash The Cash.
Emma has previously said: "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.
"If you ask me do I spoil my kids, I would say at Christmas yeah I do, but I don't spoil them throughout the year."
Oh, that's all good then. No spoiling throughout the year but then 100 presents on Christmas day, or an average of two presents a week.
Certainly beats a pair of mittens and a pencil sharpener.
