Poll: How much do you plan to spend on Christmas presents?
All the money.

BRITISH MUM EMMA Tapping has received a huge amount of criticism after she posted this photo of her children’s Christmas presents online.

The image has been shared over 100,000 times, with Tapping’s children being called “spoiled brats”.

Some people sided with Tapping, saying it’s “no one else’s business how you spend your money”.

So, with just two weeks to go until the big day, we’re asking, how much will you spend on Christmas presents?

Under €300 (3870)

I don't count - it would upset me too much (1025)
