15 Christmas crackers for a dreamy table setting this holiday season

We've found a Christmas cracker for every festive style

Christmas crackers are one of the oldest holiday traditions. As well as completing your Christmas table setting, they add some fun to the dinner table and these days can even contain a gift worth keeping (or drinking).

While you'll now find a whole range of themed crackers from beauty to jewellery-filled, you can never go wrong with more traditional options either. With sustainability in mind, some have been created using minimal plastic and recycled materials, plus we've found lots of reusable options to bring out year after year.
