Super Cool Christmas Crackers (+Why They Make Your Christmas Table Even More Special!)

Super Cool Christmas Crackers (+Why They Make Your Christmas Table Even More Special!)

When it comes to traditional christmas crackers, I’m left feeling a little cold. All that plastic foil is destined for a land-fill as is the plastic toy inside. We generally know the answer to every joy and the crowns get removed within a minute. For the past few years, I’ve instructed my mum not to buy over-priced traditional supermarket crackers and instead, leave the crackers to me! I love choosing individual crackers for each member of my family (and a few spare for unexpected guests!) and surprising everyone with beauty treats instead! Not only can the treats inside be used and enjoyed for weeks (or months!) to come, but the cardboard packaging can be easily recycled. They also feel really special! Want to see my favourite beauty crackers for 2018? Let’s go!

This Works 'The Big Bang' Cracker

This Works ‘The Big Bang’ Cracker

If you have a troubled sleeper in the family, then this is the cracker for them! It’s the This Works The Big Bang Cracker  containing a sleep mask and their iconic Deep Sleep Pillow Spray. It’s clinically proven to work (and believe me, it does!) this is enough to give them enough of a taster of the product so they can see if it works for them. I have given so many bottles of this away and honestly, I think it’s such an incredible product which I wish I had discovered years ago, actually, I did discover it years ago, but I wish I had discovered it even longer ago than I did! If that makes sense! It’s a must-have product for me and honestly, it’s the best cracker for anyone who has issues sleeping!

This Works 'The Big Bang'

If you have never tried Margaret Dabbs Hand & Nail Serum, I urge you to! It’s fabulous! Fast absorbing, super nourishing and generally just a great hand cream, especially for the gal on the go!

Bulldog Original Moisturiser Cracker

Bulldog ‘Original Moisturiser’ Cracker

No joke, every year when I help lay the christmas table and I spread around the christmas crackers, I ALWAYS give the Bulldog Original Moisturiser Cracker one to my brother. He LOVES this stuff! It’s amazingly affordable, great quality, all natural and it’s just a brilliant product which seems to be a bit of a skincare secret – maybe because the boys don’t talk about which lotions and potions they love?! Anyway, at £6, this is a great cracker and comes with a 100ml tube of the classic Bulldog moisturiser. Brilliant!

Beatitude 'joy' Cracker

Beatitude ‘Joy’ Cracker

This cracker existed last year, but it’s packaging has since had a little make over and now it looks as luxe as the product inside! The Beatitude Joy Cracker contains a 15ml bath oil in the uplifting scent of Joy. Which contains essential oils of mandarin, bergamot and grapefruit. Delightful!

Crabtree & Evelyn Feeling Sweet Cracker

And for the sweet tooth of the family, how about this Crabtree & Evelyn Feeling Sweet Cracker! Instead of beauty products, it’s packed full of Crabtree’s delightful and luxe toffee and fudge! Also, in case you didn’t know, Crabtree actually have a pretty big selection of teas, biscuits and treats, their shortbread is particularly amazing! If you are more into Crabtree beauty products, there’s also this cracker which contains hand creams!

Molton Brown Cracker

Molton Brown Cracker

Saving the best, or at least, the most luxe til last, this Molton Brown Cracker contains a whopping four bottles of bath & shower gel, each 50ml big. I’m honestly, so impressed that this cracker contains so much and it costs £15. That’s brilliant right?!?!
