Level up your cracker game with these luxury bon bons for Christmas

Get cracking!
Fever Tree

Christmas is almost here and any day now we are due to be digging into our Christmas lunches, eating our body weight in prawns and enjoying the silly season.

As is tradition the only way to kick off these festivities is by cracking into a Christmas cracker and donning the iconic paper crowns while we enjoy the dad jokes.

However, the traditional crackers can seem lack-lustre and the waste created by unused trinkets and toys can certainly dampen the Christmas spirit.

The good news is it that brands have begun to create their own bonbons full of high-quality products that can add a sense of luxury and flourish to your Christmas table set-up.

From boozy bonbons to beauty-packed crackers or elevated classics there are endless options to try out so the gifts can keep flowing all Christmas Day.

We have rounded up our favourite luxury crackers for you to peruse and add to your table this Christmas.
