Christmas-mad mum branded ‘disgusting’ over towering pile of presents shares video of this year’s HUGE haul
A PRESENT-mad mum who has been branded “disgusting” over her towering pile of gifts has showcased this year’s enormous haul.
Emma Tapping, from the Isle of Man, is known for her over-the-top pile of gifts, spending months stockpiling presents.
And 2020 appears to be no different with the mum sharing a video of her sea of gifts on her TikTok account.
In the clip Emma films the surrounds of her tree to the theme tune of Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You.
Not an inch of floor space has been left over as the piles of gifts tower up past the tree branches.
Captioning her post, she wrote: “I do not feel bad for spoiling my family at Christmas.
“I do not listen to people telling me to do, what to post or their opinions. I hope you ALL have a magical Christmas.”
The video, which has received thousands of views, has prompted a mixed reaction from her followers with many claiming it was a “bit much.”
Commenting on the post, one wrote: “Must be nice…I’m sorry am I the only one who thinks this is a bit much?”
“Have some compassion, be humble!” added another and a third chimed in: “This makes me feel so poor.”
However, others were quick to defend the mum, claiming she was entitled to spend her money how she likes.
Every year Emma buys hundreds of gifts for her kids costing thousands, and even appeared on a Channel 5 documentary Xmas Excess: Parents Splash The Cash.
But the mum claims it’s all worth it when she sees the faces of her children – her daughters Mia and Ella, and her youngest Tatum – on Christmas morning.
Emma previously revealed to The Sun she’d splurged £2,000 on 350 gifts.
Her extravagant spending often attracts criticism with people previously branding her "disgusting".
Her partner, James has previously said putting the gifts under the tree is like “moving house”.
Emma 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.
“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.”
Emma has also defended the cost of the presents, claiming she spots bargain buys and doesn’t get herself into debt despite the cost of the tower of gifts.
She has even set up a Facebook page, TappingSave, to share thrifty tips, saying she is: “Dedicated to find the best deals, bargains, freebies and competitions to save you money!”
