Winter wedding favours: it has to be crackers. (Or gloves and hats depending on your location.) The Cracker Boutique makes modern (read: hip) crackers and it also has a bespoke service, too.
Run by sisters Jessica and Bryony Swinfen, all gifts are handmade, organic, British or Fair Trade and the crackers are made by hand and to order in Cornwall. Each cracker comes with a snap, hat and joke. Customers can create their own crackers by choosing from 10 designs and 39 gifts, which range from hair accessories and food, to beauty products and children's toys.
The sort of gifts you can expect in a cracker from The Cracker Boutique
Couples interested in the bespoke service can have a consultation with Jessica or Bryony, who will then devise a brief based on the couple's wedding theme, budget and gift preferences. They will source everything from boozy miniatures to jewellery and can make each cracker unique.
Good news: if your wedding is taking place this year - there is still time to buy The Cracker Boutique's design-your-own and ready-to-buy ranges. The latter collection has three cracker themes - foodie, kids and chocolate - and each theme comes in 10 styles. Prices start at £20. You can also buy empty crackers, which you can fill yourself. The final Christmas order date for design-your-own, ready-to-buy and empty crackers is 20th December. Get cracking! (Sorry.)
