Mum spends £700 on each of her kids for Xmas & birthdays – they feel hard done by, but others admit spending much more | The Sun

A MUM has been left baffled after her kids told her they felt "hard done by" when they found out how much she spends on them at Christmas.

Karen took to TikTok to reveal her predicament, saying: "I want to ask if anyone will be honest enough to say how much they spend on their kids at Christmas.

"Do you have a rough figure in mind?

"Because my kids feel hard done by."

She went on to reveal that her kids birthday are "straight after Christmas", so they've decided to combine their Christmas and birthday money to enable them to "buy some expensive things".

"I am getting them a few extra bits so it’s going to roughly work out at £700 each but that is for the Christmas and birthday," she said.
