Sam Faiers has revealed that she didn’t buy Christmas presents for her children this year and there was a very good reason why she made this decision.
The Mummy Diaries star thought it would be good to do change it up a little this year and wasn’t going to give a bundle of gifts to Paul, three and daughter Rosie, who is 10-months-old.
The 27-year-old former TOWIE star has decided to teach her children an important lesson this year, as she wants them to ‘appreciate’ what they receive in the future.
It wasn’t an excuse for Sam to penny pinch though as this time Sam and partner Paul Knightley decided to donate to charity the amount of money they would usually spend on the children at Christmas, as Sam said that her little ones are ‘fortunate enough’.
Speaking to Closer magazine, Sam said that, "brands are always gifting them things," and that the kids, "get everything they want," and are "so fortunate" in that regard.
She said the difficulty with this though, was making sure, "they don’t expect that all the time."
There may not have been any presents but the kids haven’t missed out on a luxurious time this Christmas, as Sam and family have jetted off to the Maldives.
Sam shared pics on her Instagram of her looking stunning on the sandy beaches, as they all lapped up the luxury of a midwinter break.
Who would want presents, when you can build sand castles under the sun, on Christmas Day.
