A PROUD mum has taken to social media to show off her epic Christmas present haul, leaving many very impressed.

Mum-of-one Paige, who posts on TikTok under the username @paigeg21, has revealed that she got her 20-month-old son a huge haul of Christmas gifts, but she’s spent much less than you would think.

She explained that she bought gifts from Vinted and second hand shops to ensure that she got the best deals.

As well as this, she shopped around for good bargains and managed to pick up great priced items from Amazon and B&M too.

Posting to the social media platform, Paige said: “Everything I’ve bought my 20-month-old and how much it cost.”
