The video, shares via Michi's @mjbex account, had overlay text reading: 'Only grandchild's first Christmas'. It showed a pretty impressive collection of presents including baby clothes, books and tons of toys. Michi captioned the short clip: "Baby’s First Christmas."

The video has since racked up thousands of views and tons of comments, as many were keen to have their say. One person slammed the pile of presents, as they branded it "overkill", while another fumed: "Sorry I don't want to be a negative Nancy and I mean no offence by this but this is ridiculous. He is a baby and will never remember all of these things."

A third chimed in: "Don't be offended when the baby gets over unwrapping after the second gift," while another added: "I'm just imagining how many batteries you'll be replacing, our toys all seem to go dead at the same time and suddenly I need multiple bulk packs of batteries at once."

Despite the backlash, many were supportive of the present haul, with one social media user writing: "Life is full of opportunities for everyone!! And it's your choice at the end of the day. Spoil your loved ones. Your money, your life. Love this!"
