Alternative Christmas Crackers 2016

Alternative Christmas Crackers

With 10 days’ to go who is getting excited? The novelty Christmas cracker with the paper hat, the joke that it so silly it tickles you for hours, and not forgetting the who can get the most bizarre present inside, is a Christmas must have. However that is not to say that we cannot be a little indulgent and have an alternative Christmas crackers. 

Over the last couple of years the array of alternative crackers out there has grown to a level where there is something for everyone, even your furry pets. I for one usually opt for a foodie one on the table, because obviously you need another treat to accompany the turkey and all the trimmings. This year however has got me thinking that these would also make great little stocking fillers. They’re quirky, totes festive, and you don’t have to wrap them up… bonus! Here are my top picks of those that are out there.
