Christmas

Elevate your Christmas lunch with these luxury bon bons

You won't find these in the rubbish on Boxing Day.

Before we dig into our Christmas feast, it’s customary that each guest yank open a cracker with the person next to them. We then don our flimsy crowns, exchange bad jokes, and spend the better half of a minute playing with our plastic fortune teller fish or jumping frog. But our eyes quickly turn to the leg of ham and bowl of prawns on the table and we discard our piece of plastic to the centre of the table in favour of food, drinks, and making memories.

At the end of the day, these fish and frogs typically end up in the garbage, gone for another year. It’s a Christmas tradition.

But do we really need more plastic tat in our lives? What if we indulged in more luxe Christmas crackers?

If you’re looking to reduce your waste this Christmas (or are simply sick of that fortune telling fish) then it’s time to up your cracker game. Whether it’s a beauty product, sustainable wrapping paper, or other reduced plastic gifts, we guarantee these luxury Christmas crackers won’t end up in the rubbish with your food scraps.
