A mom has slammed social media users after facing criticism over her daughter's luxurious Christmas wish list.

Celebrity publicist Roxy Jacenko from Sydney, Australia, made headlines after she posted a picture of her 11-year-old daughter Pixie's hand-written list.

While some people found the post funny, others accused Jacenko of spoiling her daughter with "materialistic" goods as her list included a $9,000 handbag and assorted pieces of designer fashion.

Speaking to News.com.au, the 42-year-old mom hit back at critics and said the people who have a problem with Pixie's Christmas wishlist have "too much time on their hands".

Check out Pixie's Christmas list below:

"Clothes and swimwear. Hardly unreasonable for a tween," she told the outlet. "Ask any parent of a young lady of this age, you’ll find the list is somewhat the same. People have too much time on their hands."

The child's preferred presents were divided into two categories - expensive and mid/cheap - and included Yeezy trainers which are around $600 and a $135 bikini set.

On the "cheaper," side, her daughter had asked for a Tiger Mist "Tori" dress for $40, Kim Kardashian's SKIMS soft lounge tank that sells for $70, and two Sommer halter bikini tops that retail for $89 each.

"I’m so pleased Pixie Curtis has given options for various budgets," Jacenko wrote in the caption alongside a picture of the wishlist on Instagram, adding, "Goyard bag also known as Goyer."

Jacenko's post was quickly flooded with comments about the Christmas list - with some stating that she shouldn't spoil the young girl with expensive goods.

One disappointed user wrote: "Worrying that it’s nothing to play with, or read, or grow her brain. Just clothes."

Another user remarked: "There is nothing about this to be proud of given she’s 11 years old."

A third person commented: "How to raise a materialist child - just follow Roxy for tips. Amazing this child knows all these brands but can not spell CHRISTMAS yet. Maybe have your child focus on education and not being just the cool kid - just saying."

The publicist has also spoken about the backlash with Daily Mail Australia and said: "There will always be someone with an opinion with no knowledge of what we donate and contribute financially to various communities and charities."

"I choose to ignore it and not be consumed by the 'noise'. Instead of making a judgment, they ought to get out and see what they can do with the energy for those less fortunate!" she added.
