24 Of The Best Christmas Crackers For 2021

Bang! Help make your festive lunch go with a pop by pulling one of these Christmas crackers.

Is Christmas even Christmas without pulling a cracker or ten? We say not. The winning combination of terrible jokes, paper hats and dice/ nail files/ keyrings/ other tiny trinkets you never knew you needed reliably brings everyone together. There is, after all, no leveller like a paper hat, unfailingly making everyone look as daft as one another. There are, however, crackers and crackers. This crop are the ones we’re going crackers for for Christmas 2021.
