Remember when all you’d get in a Christmas cracker was a paper hat, a plastic toy and an embarrassing Dad joke? Well, not anymore!
Over the past few years, beauty Christmas crackers have become all the rage, and now that so many different companies are getting in on the act we’re spoilt for choice. We’ve rounded up some of the best festive crackers out at the moment.
L’Occitane Festive Crackers Collection €26
We’re loving all the gift sets from L’Occitane this year and none more so that their Festive Cracker Collection. For €26 you get three containing a hand-picked selection of three mini L’occitane products. Each cracker has a hand cream, shower gel and bath cube from their best-selling ranges: cherry blossom, delicious almond and relaxing lavender.
Vintage Cosmetic Company €70.40 / £55
If you want to inject a little vintage glamour to your dinner table this Christmas or, need some cute little stocking filler ideas then these Vintage Cosmetics Company crackers are ideal.
In the pack, you get six crackers, all of which come with a full sized tweezer, duo pencil sharpener and floral designed emery board. In lieu of bad jokes, you’ll find a different beauty tip inside each one as well as a paper crown (because let’s face it, it’s not really Christmas until you’re wearing one of those!).
St Tropez Express Party Cracker €10
Whether you’re looking for a gift for the false tan lover in your life or simply need to give your own pins a little colour this cracker has you covered. In it, you’ll find a 50ml Express Bronzing Mousse and an Applicator mitt to make it look like you’ve been sunning yourself all winter.
Soap & Glory What A Cracker Collection €22
I had to tip my cap to Soap & Glory who’ve come up with the best pun ever as they invite you to “Soaprise your friends” this Christmas with their six piece cracker collection. Fans of the range will love these; they’re filled with all the best sellers (in either 75ml or 50ml) including Clean on Me shower gel, Clean Girls body wash, The Scrub of your Life body scrub, The Righteous Butter, Hand Food and Heel Genius.
Essie Crack'a'Colour Christmas Gift Set €26
Gorgeous nails here we come! We’re predicting that this particular cracker from Essie is going to fly off the shelves. In it, you’ll find four festive colours including Smokin’ Hot, A Cut Above (glitter polish), Fiji and Bordeaux meaning all your nail needs are sorted for Christmas and beyond.
Are you a fan of these? Or do you still love a good Dad joke in your crackers?
