A mum-of-three is being praised on TikTok for how she handled a pretty sticky situation regarding Christmas presents for her kids.
Hannah explained: “Obviously this year Christmas is going to be harder for a lot of people. I thought I’d share exactly what I’m spending on my kids because it might help some people feel better.”

Hannah went on: “We have more than some people have to spend, we are very lucky. Going over the top, personally, it doesn’t feel right for me to do that for my kids.
“My kids are extremely lucky, they have amazing experiences and they get stuff throughout the year.
“Someone on here told me they’d spent £4,000 already on their two kids. It’s completely up to people how they spend their money. I hope that baby loves all their stuff and it is lovely parents want to give their kids a good Christmas.”
Hannah added: “I am spending £100 each on my kids. I’ve got three kids. That might sound like a huge amount of money to some people, it also might sound like nothing to others.”
Soon after sharing her original video, Hannah revealed in a follow-up post that someone had commented: “Some people save all year round for their kids to have a massive pile at Christmas. It comes around once a year, there's no excuses!” beneath her original video.
In response, Hannah asked her three kids what they thought of their Christmas budget, and they gave the most heartwarming responses.
In her video - across which Hannah wrote: “Asking my kids what they think of this unbelievably gross comment” - she told her kids that one of her followers thinks she should be spending more than £100 on each of them, and asked for their thoughts.
One of Hannah’s children replied: “£100 is a lot,” while another said: “Also that’s £100 for each of us, so that’s £300.”
When asked whether they think ‘it’s important children have a lot of money spent on them’, Hannah’s three little ones all replied with a resounding ‘no’.
Hannah was heaped with praise in the comment section beneath her video, with one person writing: “I think how you’ve raised them to think this way is the biggest present they will ever receive.”
Another social media user added: “I don't say this a lot, you should be so proud that you've raised wonderful, loving and level-headed children,” while a third echoed: “How 3 children have more emotional maturity and self awareness than some adults.”
