While most of us have a handful of people to buy Christmas presents for, Sue Radford, mum of Britain’s biggest family, has a tough job to do when it comes to shopping. gifts each December.

Sue, 46, has 313,000 YouTube subscribers and her latest video shows her Christmas shopping for her children.

So if you want to know what it’s like to shop for 22 kids, listen up.

Sue went on a trip to the Smyths toy chain to get presents and luckily had a helping hand from her son Luke, 21, and daughter Millie, 20.

Sue’s daughter Heidi, one, and Millie’s daughter, Ophelia, three months, also came for the ride.

Sharing the video on YouTube, Sue said: ‘Join us for a visit to the toy store and a festive hot chocolate with some of the kids!

“We are just preparing to leave. We’re going to do some Christmas shopping while the kids are at school.

“I just dropped Bonnie and Archie off at daycare so we just have Heidi and Ophelia and Luke is coming too.”

“We’re going to do some Christmas shopping in Smyths so we’ll take you with us.”

Sue’s video shows the family in Smyths as Sue takes the camera into the store, showing popular children’s toys.

We see all kinds of toys, from cars and motorcycles to teddy bears and dinosaurs.

Luke was unimpressed with the children’s vacuum cleaners and said, “Why would you want to buy your child a vacuum cleaner?” to which Sue replied, “To teach them how to clean.”

Luke didn’t seem enthusiastic and said, “But they’re three years old. They don’t need to learn how to vacuum at three o’clock. They must learn to speak. »

Sue replied with “Teach them early.”

Luke was more interested in the drool buckets.

Although Sue wasn’t enthusiastic, she said, “We’ll get them, but it’s causing so much damage everywhere.”

The family shopping trip was very successful and as you can imagine when shopping for 22 children there were a lot of trolleys involved.

Sue said: ‘Anyway I think we better go guys because the carts are looking a bit full.’

The family left the toy store with three stacked carts, with everything from a kitchen set, slime buckets, dolls, games, cars, babies and Legos.

After the big shopping trip, Sue continued, “Well, we’re done with Smyths toys.

“We had quite a few carts full.”

But the next task was to try to fit everything into the car…

Sue said: “Now we have to try and get it all in the car – do you guys think we’ll do that?

“Do you think we will be able to integrate everything? Not sure.”

Sue and her Luke and Millie then packed the Christmas presents into their Land Rover and, surprisingly, everything managed to fit together.

Sue said: ‘We did it. It’s all in there.

“I think we deserved a Costa.

“It’s done and we are now ready to go for a Costa.”


The family then ended their outing with a trip to the Costa drive-in where they bought Christmas drinks.

Sue picked up a Terry’s Chocolate Orange hot chocolate and sprinkled her flake over the cream.

She said, “It’s divine. Don’t you love Costa’s Christmas hot chocolates?

“The no eating and drinking rule in my car disappeared out the window.”

Another added: “I can’t imagine buying toys for so many kids every year. That’s a lot and then the conclusion. I love their big family. I wish them all a very happy holiday.
