Gifts: Great Christmas Crackers

Gift Christmas Crackers

Gift Christmas Crackers

Any one of my close friends or family will be able to tell you I’m not a greetings card kind of girl, instead I prefer to give little tokens of friendship at christmas time. Small boxes of chocolates are cute, but crackers with gifts inside are a little more fun! Alternatively, they are a really fun alternative to supermarket christmas crackers, you can put one on each persons place setting at Christmas dinner and it’s a really nice little touch. If you want to hide the branding and make them a little more festive, Spray Paint them gold and tie Christmas Ribbon at each end!


Caudelie Gourmand Body Cracker

Oh la la! This Caudelie Gourmand Body Cracker is such a treat! It contains a lip balm and a travel sized bottle of body lotion and shower gel. Caudelie products are always beautiful, they smell incredible and really nourish your skin. If you / your friend has never tried their products, this is a lovely introduction to the brand and at £10 it’s a really good price, in fact, it’s possible the lip balm will last all year!


Dirty Works Crackers About Beauty

Oh these Dirty Works Crackers About Beauty crackers are so cute! Just look at those little snowmen! Each cracker contains a beauty mini which are perfect little treats to open on christmas day and once January hits, they make perfect handbag sized products! Perfect right?!

Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy Cracker

Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy Cracker

I think y’all know how much I love Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Creams, which is why the cracker is a must have! What I love about this Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy Cracker is that it says on the front what’s inside, however, when you burst the cracker open, there isn’t one hand cream in there, there’s three! Each one in a limited edition festive scent; Rose Pineapple, Spiced Earl Grey and Festive Fig. Bound to delight your buddy and at £6 for three mini hand creams, it’s a real christmas treat!

Soap & Glory What A Cracker Set

Soap & Glory What A Cracker Set

If you are looking for a set of crackers, rather than individual ones, then look no further, Soap & Glory have an amazing set of six crackers! At £16 for the set, it’s the most cost effective option and they are perfect for displaying on the tree, garnishing the christmas table, or splitting up into individuals to give to school friends / colleagues. With Soap & Glory you always get the best bang for your beauty buck. Obvs!


Bulldog Original Moisturiser Cracker

Here’s one for the boys! This Bulldog Christmas Cracker contains a hefty 100ml tube of their award winning Original Moisturiser.  It will last him well into the new year and because it’s Bulldog skincare, it’s great quality and made using natural ingredients. My brother is a big fan of their products and so is my boyfriend!


Cowshed Wreath Cracker

I’m a huge fan of Cowshed products, their products always smell incredible and their spas are beautiful! This Cowshed Wreath Cracker contains two of my favourite products, Cow Slip Hand Cream (travel sized 50ml bottle) and Lippy Cow Lip Balm. Here’s hoping there is a candle and some shower gel wrapped up under the treat to match!


Autograph Beauty Crackers

I really love how luxe these Autograph Beauty Crackers look and feel! You get four in the pack for £17.50 and they contain a nail polish, lipgloss, mascara and nail file. If you ask me, they are just as good on the outside as they are on the inside!

L'Occitane Pleasure and Fragrance Cracker

L’Occitane Pleasure and Fragrance Cracker

A few nights ago, I went to dinner with L’Occitane and on my place setting was their Pleasure and Fragrance Cracker. I burst it open with my friend LBQ blog and did a little whoop when I saw there were three items in this cracker, cherry blossom hand cream, shower gel and bath cube. Wonderful!


Margaret Dabbs Hydrating Foot Lotion Cracker

I love Margaret Dabbs products, both their hands and feet products are beautiful which is why I couldn’t resist featuring both this Hydrating Foot Lotion Cracker as well as the Fabulous Cracker below. This bumper cracker contains a full sized bottle of Foot Lotion which believe me, is a lot more glamorous than it sounds! If you want to read a little more about Margaret Dabbs Foot collection, just click here!


Margaret Dabbs Fabulous Hands Cracker

And finally, here it is… the Margaret Dabbs Fabulous Hands Cracker! This little cutie contains a bottle of Nourishing Nail & Cuticle Serum which will leave your nails feeling-oh-so good! But be warned, once you try Margaret Dabbs products, you won’t want to settle for anything less! You can read more about her hand collection here.

Are you a fan of Gift Christmas Crackers, I think they are a lovely alternative to traditional crackers and they make a lovely token gift for friends! Have you seen any exciting ones this year?

    A British friend introduced us to Christmas Crackers (as well as Father Ted) some years ago. I have only see the grocery store variety across the pond here. I’ll keep an eye out for these nicer style ones this year…. Do they still come with the paper hats?
