What do snowmen have for breakfast? We could tell you the punchline, but then we’d have to put a great big “spoiler warning” on the page – so you’re going to have to wait till December 25, we’re afraid.
The terrible Christmas cracker joke is a firmly held festive tradition, and we’re not going to play any part in its downfall. We can guarantee that our cracker jokes will be so bad that whatever comes out of the oven will seem like it was made at a Michelin Starred restaurant in comparison.
But the gag is just a small part of the wonderful world of crackers. First up, they really need to look the part. They’re as much a part of the table decorations as the candlesticks, centrepiece and expertly folded napkins. That’s why we make sure that there’s a whole range of designs to choose from.
Whatever colour scheme you’re going for in your Christmas table, we’ve got a cracker sets to match. Perhaps you don’t want a uniform set, but want your crackers as colourful as Grandma Christine’s language after a few sherries – don’t worry, we’ve got them covered too. We also sell novelty crackers with fun and festive designs that will always go down a treat.
The other important thing is the prize. They can be anything from the obligatory paper hat, to fun tokens to keep as a memento and even high-quality tools or gifts that might actually be useful. We always say on the box and in the description what gifts you can expect to find in the crackers – but not in each individual cracker: that’s still a surprise!
You might also like games to play in your crackers. They are great for families and friends to have a laugh after dinner, so if your Christmas parties often have an awkward pause after the meal is over, they could be just perfect for you.
Crackers don’t always just come out on Christmas day, of course. For many people, they’re used as decorations during Advent, so expect to find them in the Christmas tree among the baubles or decorations, or sitting on shelves and mantelpieces. If this is how you bring out your crackers, have a look at our most decorative ranges, and choose the ones that match the decor you’re going for in your room.
So if you want your Christmas party to really go with a bang, have a look at our fab range of crackers. With every style and price to choose from, there’s bound to be one that suits you down to the ground.
