Christmas Crackers: A Festive Essential with Style
An essential for the Christmas holidays, the once humble Christmas Crackers have been given a stylish makeover. This year my favourite designers and makers have outdone themselves with Eco-friendly, fabric, and re-useable options. Today’s post is a pick of my favourite designs from this year’s selection.
First are a box of Eco-Friendly Handmade Christmas Crackers from Sophia Victoria Joy (at the top of the post). Designed with a colourful chevron pattern the crackers are .silk-screen printed in the UK using water-based inks. A box of 6 crackers retails at £35.00 from the Sophia Victoria Joy website.
Gift Box Crackers (shown above and below) are a unique cracker concept from Keep this Design. A slide open gift box with the genuine bang of a real cracker! Fill with the mini gifts of your choosing and re-use for Eco-friendly Christmas crackers.
Available in regular and mini sizes. Prices start from £6.75 for a pack of 2 regular-sized Christmas crackers and from £2.75 for a mini cracker. Replacement snaps can be purchased at £1.10 for 6. Find out more and place your order at the Keep This Design website.
Also creating re-useable Christmas crackers are Kate Sproston Design. The luxurious embroidered linen designs are available with woodland themes or personalised with a monogramme. Made with a durable plastic inner tube they can be re-used each Christmas with new sweets and mini treats added annually.
Prices start from £12.50 each for the woodland designs and £13.50 each for the monogrammed christmas crackers. Discounts apply for bigger quantities. See more and purchase at the Kate Sproston Design website.
My final Christmas crackers choice is from Nancy & Betty. Always reliable for their splendid Christmas collections this year’s designs are no exception. With a classic Nutcracker design, the luxury crackers come with quality mini gifts, gold foil paper hat, joke and snap! A box of 6 crackers are £34.00 from the Nancy & Betty website.
