Obviously the traditional cracker is an essential part of everyone’s festive dinner table. However once the cracker is cracked (or not) their cheap plastic gifts end up being thrown at the family drunk and within a matter of minutes, they make their way to the RECYCLING!! bin.
That’s not the case with the higher end of the market – with many luxury cracker makers upping their game when it comes to the gifts inside. Luxury here comes in many shapes and forms. There are the fancy beauty crackers containing treats to help you over the indulgence, the foodie crackers filled with edible delights, and the cocktail-themed crackers containing mini-bottles of spirits. And it goes all the way up to super high-end crackers containing beautifully packaged exuberent products that’d make great gifts in their own right.
