Alternatives To Christmas Crackers

Christmas is all about traditions, but just because we’ve being doing things the same way for years, it doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t try something new. Christmas crackers are a lot of fun for the thirty seconds or less that it takes to use them – and then they’re discarded in a bin bag full of wrapping paper and paper napkins along with the plastic toys and paper hats that came with them.

This year, why not go for a table favour with a bit more longevity? Whether you’re looking for Christmas table presents or just exciting table decorations, these Christmas cracker alternatives will help you to reduce waste and help the environment this Christmas. Who knows? They might even end up being a new tradition!



What are Christmas table presents?

Christmas table presents are a great alternative to crackers. This fun and laidback form of gift giving allows you to purchase mini gifts for each person at the Christmas table. They’re a great alternative to Christmas crackers because they give you something to do around the table while also providing a keepsake for the future, instead of a plastic toy you’ll just throw away.

Here at Getting Personal, we’ve got a great range of Christmas gifts suitable as table presents or Christmas cracker alternatives.
