Mom Spends A Whopping $2,400 On 300 Gifts For Her Family

"Another year of hard graft, saving and planning. Another year of my family making me proud everyday. They deserve a great Christmas," Emma Tapping wrote in a viral Facebook post.

When it comes to Christmas gifts, some of us go all out while others stick to small trinkets and souvenirs. British mother Emma Tapping can be categorized as the former — she spent a whopping $2,400 on her three children for the holidays, totaling about 300 gifts, Yahoo reports

And, yes, there are a few presents under the tree for her husband, too.

Tapping, from the Isle of Man, is receiving an influx of both criticism and praise after posting a controversial photo of the gifts to her Facebook page two years in a row.

Last Christmas, Tapping spent a sizeable amount on her family, clearly shown in this picture:

This year, Tapping took her Christmas shopping game to the next level entirely: 

Tapping captioned the photo,

"Another year of hard graft, saving and planning. Another year of my family making me proud everyday. They deserve a great Christmas. The haters will hate but nothing and no one will change how I do Christmas."

Tapping's holiday shopping is so, uh, unique, she appeared on a documentary called "Xmas Excess: Parents Splash the Cash," and Twitter has feelings about the program.

In an interview with Inside Edition, Tapping brushes off the naysayers. 

"Would you do this again next year?" the host asks.

"I would, yeah, I wouldn't let anybody tell me how to spend my Christmas with my children," she replies.

It's important to note that Tapping doesn't use credit cards to purchase the gifts, and she begins buying them at the start of the year.

It's Tapping's  money — who are we to judge what she does with it? Let's face it: There are far worse things she could spend her cash on than gifts for loved ones. 

Lucky kids.
