We are just seven weeks away from Christmas now and many of us have been preparing for the upcoming festivities of the special day.

Whether that's sorting out some Crimbo jumpers and stocking our cupboards with booze galore to picking out the perfect dessert for a very merry meal - Brits all over are going into overdrive to ensure the big day runs as smoothly as possible.

That's exactly the case for one mum who has since come forward to defend spending £100 each for her four children’s Christmas presents.

The mum, Hannah, who goes by Not Your Basic Mama online, has taken to TikTok a couple days ago to share with her 509.3k followers a little more about her gifting budget.

"I'm starting my Christmas shopping today and I'm going to tell you exactly why," she began.

She explained that she set herself a budget of £100 for each of her four children; a seven-month-old, six-year-old, 12-year-old and 13-year-old.

Before getting into it, Hannah noted they do 'a lot of family based stuff leading up to Christmas' as they don't do advent calendars.

"I like to make memories with my children rather than them just having an advent calendar with chocolate," she went on.

Showing her followers how she stays in budget, the mum said: "Shopping last minute is probably the worst way to keep in a budget."

Hannah said she used places like Vinted and eBay to get 'branded stuff', which is 'brand-new with tags' as well as charity shops and car-boot sales.

"Black Friday deals is another really, really good way of saving money just before Christmas," she added.

The TikToker also explained she puts money aside in the run-up to Christmas using the money app, Plum.

The rundown seemed to really rub some TikTok user up the wall with one writing: "You spend enough on drink and vile outfits but the kids have nothing."

Hannah then responded to the nasty comment in a follow-up video where she said: "Oh my f*cking God.

"Literally, the amount of people getting f*cking angry over this is ridiculous."

She went on: "Let's just stop for a second and say that, for instance, I had posted up the amount of s**t I was buying my kids, I couldn't f**king win.

"You'd all come at me and be like, 'You're rubbing it in because there's people out there that aren't in that position.'"

Hannah reassured any trolls out there: "Guys, chill the f**k out. My children have more than enough, thank you."
