A mother has been facing criticism after sharing a photo of the gifts she had bought for her young daughter for Christmas.
33-year-old Alicia Snoeks from Townsville, Australia, revealed how she already spent over $1,400 on Christmas gifts for her 3-year-old daughter this year.
While the mom also has a 6-week-old son, the little boy will have to be happy with a baby bouncer, bath toys, and some clothes since he is still too young to open presents.
As Alicia told Daily Mail Australia, she wants to make sure that “Christmas is all about her” daughter which is why she had already spent hundreds of dollars on various gifts throughout the year.
To make sure that the little girl understands other people can also receive gifts, the parents decided to buy some clothes for her little brother as well.
After opening up about her gifting habits, the mother has been slammed on social media whereas some people suggested her daughter will become “entitled” after all the “spoiling” with gifts.
“It will be quite overwhelming for a three-year-old,” one person suggested. “Hardly any of the things will be played with.”
Among the gifts that the parents will present to the 3-year-old are various dolls, clothes, a climbing wall, and an $800 trampoline.
“You only get a few years out of cheap trampolines, we will get ten out of this one,” the mother insisted as she revealed her son’s name will also appear on the gift so that the little boy can also use it when he is bigger.
