Photos and video of her mountain of presents swamping her Christmas tree in her home on the Isle of Man have been slammed.

Only the top of the tree is visible in the pictures.

One Instagram user posted: “So many people have nothing you should donate them.

“Personally I think this is ridiculous who needs this many it’s just selfish.”

Another person agreed, posting: “Pretty sure you’re losing sight of what Christmas is actually about with all those gifts.

This photograph was one of few which caused offence online

“Might just be because I have 11 under my tree, but this photo is just disgusting.”

But Emma, who works full-time, claims she enjoys seeing the delight of her children – Mia, 16, Ella, 12, and her youngest Tatum – on Christmas morning.

And other parents online have supported Emma’s bold move.
