An Australian mother has shocked the internet by revealing the endless Christmas presents she has bought for her three young children.

Kristy Nowak stored the gifts across 14 cupboards in the family home, including bikes, video games and stuffed toys.

They were bought over five months and when placed together, almost filled an entire room, shares Daily Mail.

The haul is estimated to have cost the mother $3,000 Australian dollars.

Some users of a mother’s Facebook group expressed their shock at the ‘amazing’ Christmas present haul – while others questioned whether she had gone too far.

Kristy shared the video and pictures of the Christmas haul to a mother’s group, saying: ‘Finally emptied my Christmas cupboards to see what I’ve collected over the last few months… did I mention that I LOATHE wrapping presents.

‘Super grateful to have all this for my three crotch demons but f**k.’

However, some were quick to criticise her for her extreme present haul.

‘Oh dear… a bit much. I’d be saving for some birthdays,’ shared one, while another stated ‘that’s ridiculous’.

But Kristy was quick to silence the haters, stating she wouldn’t let society ‘guilt trip’ her for showering her children in gifts.

‘Society will try let you believe there is [something wrong with spoiling your kids] or try guilt trip you for it [sic],’ she said.

  • I wonder if the kids are still opening them?


  • How silly. Is it really $3000 worth though? Even saving some for Birthdays, I wonder where she puts it all. Then again, when you open the gigantic mega boxes, LOLs and most toys are pretty tiny. Bet it doesn’t look nearly as lavish then. Think of all the teeny tiny bits and pieces of plastic she will be stepping on.


  • My thought is where does she store it all?


  • Each to their own but that’s crazy


  • Well she can buy whatever she wants wiht her money but really all of those gifts is it really necessary.


  • Goodness how do you store all that! and what about next Christmas! I wouldn’t want to wrap that amount either. I also wouldn’t want to spend that much though :P


  • oh my goodness I couldn’t be bothered wrapping that many gifts. I also couldn’t stand the amount of mess that all those gifts would leave around my house – if she had to store them in 14 different cupboards around the house where are her kids going to put them all? I wonder how many things they have already stopped playing with since christmas – I hope she gives the unloved toys to charity especially now with the bushfires across australia – lots of kids would have had their presents destroyed :(


  • I would rather make memories than just buy a gazillion things because I can. Dont get me wrong, we spoiled our son, but if you get too many things and go OTT, then the child just gets overwhelmed and cant possibly appreciate everything they have got. Just my opinion


  • Unbelievable! I much prefer quality over quantity. Maybe she lives in a competitive situation.


  • All that clutter. I would hate to be picking that all up. Each to their own but if it was me I would spend that money on a nice Vuly set or something of better quality.


  • I wonder about the quality of the toys and how long they will be safe to play with


  • I hope the kids had fun, but they would most likely not remember it in years to come, would have been better spent on a holiday they can remember more.


  • Can’t understand this woman posting what she has done – just asking others to have a go at her in my opinion. And of course, she hasn’t thought how she will manage in future years when her children expect this sort of thing.
    Well it’s her rod to bear, I guess.


  • Interesting article. Thank you.


  • She has the right to spend her money the way she likes but then there is no need to post the pictures on mums group as not every child and parents are as lucky as her family so they might felt left out.
