Mum defends decision to spend £800 on her toddler – and may buy more presents

mA mum who has already spent nearly £800 on her young daughter has vowed to keep on spending.

Alicia Snoeks from Queensland, Australia, is more than happy getting three-year-old Rosalie all of the presents that she wants.

Already shelling out $1,400 on Christmas gifts, she is clearly not planning on stopping there.

The 33-year-old mum also has a six-week-old son – but he is only getting some clothes, bath toys and a baby bouncer.

Alicia told Daily Mail Australia that she's only bought her son a few "practical" presents to teach her daughter that others can have gifts too.

It sparked a big debate about how much is right to spend on your children at Christmas.

Defending her spending spree, Alicia said: "We don't want her thinking he is on the bad list. Christmas is all about her."

Among the items the little girl will open on December 25 is a trampoline, which cost $800 – around £599.

She refuses to say she is done with the buying and with weeks to go, the spending is set to soar still.

Some parents have told her this will only make her daughter grow up "entitled" or "believing they deserve everything".

Another said: "It will be quite overwhelming for a three-year-old….hardly any of the things will be played with."

She also said that she'll tell her little girl that all of the "good" toys are from her mum and dad rather than Santa as she doesn't want him to get all of the credit.
