Hi lovely humans of the internet!
For today’s blog we’re going to talk about Christmas crackers.
If we’re being honest but I’ve never really gotten the whole deal with crackers? I mean they look great when you set up Christmas dinner, I enjoy the scary big noise thing when you pull them and I am insanely competitive so I have my wrist technique sorted and I win the cracker pull every time.
But still while I am a fan of the hats I’m not a massive fan of the tiny toys; I’m either worried about my dogs eating them, or stepping on them (which is pretty much the festive version of stepping on Lego) and I kind of think crackers are a waste of paper.
So I went on a little quest to find some fun crackers that might get me (and hopefully you) a bit more excited about the Christmas cracker experience.
These Meri Meri Reindeer Christmas Crackers are so freaking cute
They are £15.00 for six on theoriginalpartybagcompany.co.uk which is the pricier end of this list but I just couldn’t resist putting them down because as we’ve already established they are so cute.
There is this Haribo Starmix Christmas Cracker
These are £1.00 each in Superdrug, but maybe wait until after dinner to eat your cracker…also if you like the big bang the cracker makes – which is definitely the best part of crackers – maybe get another of the crackers on this list.
These crackers are more naughty fun; Talking Tables Saucy Christmas Crackers
These probably aren’t something to use with your family because each cracker has a truth or dare question inside. They would be so much fun at a work dinner or if you have a flatmate/friend Christmas dinner. And at £7.00 for eight on Asos.com you won’t break the bank with them.
Now this last one probably isn’t a cracker you can have with your Christmas dinner.
The Lush Christmas Cracker Bubble Bar
£5.95 in Lush Cosmetics. Now you can’t eat this or wear it on your head but you can soak in a Christmas cracker bath and let your stomach go down from all of the pigs in blankets you’ve consumed/ eat a sandwich made from the turkey that you all swear you won’t buy/eat/cook next Christmas but inevitably will again anyway.
Happy National Cookie Day! Go eat some cookies you beautiful bastard!
