A mother who loves to spoil her son has revealed that she will spend $3,000 on Christmas gifts this year even though he’s only two years old.
33-year-old Kasey Akram from Sheffield enjoys buying her toddler son Jareem Akham presents, including a $1,200 solid gold pacifier and Gucci shoes.
The full-time mother, who bathes her son in honey and milk, said she wants only the best for her child, adding that no gift is too big.
Kasey also said she’s hoping to buy Jareem 100 gifts for this Christmas.
“Things are expensive but I start getting presents in May. I do it bit by bit. I have a saving system,” she said.
“I’m spending about £2,500 ($3,000) in total. I’m spending about £1,000 ($1,200) and his dad is doing the rest.”
“His dad says, ‘Why are you buying this stuff in May?’ and I say, ‘You’ve got to think ahead because times are hard,’” she went on.
“I’m hoping he’s going to have 100 presents to open on the day – I like the floor filled.”
Her son will also be receiving a gold bracelet, a new bike, a robotic cat, pony riding lessons, a six-foot dinosaur, and an ET plus toy.
The mother also said that she told her son’s dad not to get her anything for her birthday and to simply put it towards Christmas for their child.
Kasey, who is reportedly on benefits, is also spending a lot on ‘Woodland Lodge’ experience at Alton Towers, explaining that she spreads the cost of the expenses over a year.
Other purchases include designer threats including a Burberry tracksuit and a family visit to ‘Santa’s Sleepover.’
“A lot of my family don’t celebrate Christmas so it’s just for Jareem really,” she said. “He’s got 33 stocking fillers and then I’ve got plenty of presents.
“He said he wanted a dolphin which I can’t buy, so instead I’m taking him to the Canary Islands in the summer – we’re going to a water park where you can see dolphins.”
