Gift Box Crackers

slide wedding1

Our regular size crackers can be sent as a Gift Box Cracker to celebrate any special occasion. Made in your choice of colours we fill them with a selection of gifts and package them in a white box that is cellophane wrapped so that the cracker can be seen inside. We can then either send them to you or directly to the intended recipient, together with a hand written gift card with your own message.

CHOICE OF GIFTS

We have a selection of gifts in stock that are suitable to fit inside the crackers, gift vouchers are always popular or you can send your own fillers.

Suggestions include:

  • Key rings
  • Perfume atomisers
  • Small handbag pens
  • Miniature perfumes
  • Bath bombs
  • Luxury chocolates
  • Novelty toys for children
  • Handbag mirrors
  • Torches
  • Heart chocolates
  • Old fashioned sweets
  • Baby's First Tooth Box
  • Baby's First Curl Box
  • Pocket Hanky

These are just a few of the items that we have used in the past so if none of these are suitable then please contact us and we can discuss other options with you.

Prices obviously vary with contents but start at £4.00 for a boxed cracker filled with sweets, P&P is extra and is weight dependent so will be quoted at time of ordering.

Cracker Options

Cracker Sizes

The Small size (approx. 16cm long x 2.5cm diameter, barrel length 5.5cm) is one of our most popular crackers and is often used as a place setting, by adding a name card which we foil print in gold or silver. This size will also hold a couple of our traditional handmade sweets or 2 chocolate hearts and so can double up as your wedding favour.

The Medium size measures approximately 21cm long x 4cm diameter with a 7cm barrel length, and we usually fill these with 3 heart chocolates or sweets. Again, add a name card and use as a place setting.

The Regular size (measuring 27cm long x 4.7cm diameter x 9cm barrel length) can be filled with 5 sweets, 5 chocolate hearts, wedding bubbles or a gift of your own choice. This size is the traditional "Christmas cracker" size. NOTE: We can also make a special size cracker with a larger centre barrel of 11.5cm, which will hold a "miniature" bottle.

The Large size is an extra large cracker measuring 35cm in length x 8.5cm diamter with a barrel length of 12cm and can be filled with a selection of gifts; these have often been used as unusual balloon weights for centre table decorations. They are popular for evening reception parties, if perhaps you would like to give your guests a small gift but do not want to have the expense of individual favours. They are also great fun and a good conversation opener!

Paper Options

We have a choice of six standard cracker papers; satin ivory, satin white, gold, silver, glitter gold or glitter silver. (If you would like a paper sample please send us a standard size s.a.e. telling us the colours you require.)

We make our crackers to order and therefore the customer can choose ribbon colours, decorations and accessories of their choice. This means that your cracker is unique to you and can tie in with any theme that you may have for your wedding. Alternatively you can buy the crackers without ribbon and finish them yourself. We can also offer a unique bespoke service where we will match colours to a material swatch or sample, as an alternative to our six standard colours. The charge for this service would depend on the quantity of crackers ordered and the cost of the paper chosen, but we keep prices to a minimum and you only pay for any additional cost of materials.

Ribbon Colours

All of our crackers come tied with curling ribbon as standard and these are available in the following colours:

Ivory, White, Irridescant White, Gold, Holographic Gold, Silver, Metallic Silver, Slate Grey, Light Blue, Dark Blue, Metallic Blue, Emerald, Lime Green, Dark Green, Aqua, Lemon, Peach, Red, Metallic Red, Burgundy, Pink, Shocking Pink, Lilac, Dark Purple, Brown and Black.

As an alternative we can also use satin or organza ribbons; prices will be quoted accordingly, depending on quantity of crackers ordered and type of ribbon used. We have an extensive range of colours and widths available and can colour match to a material swatch or sample. If preferred we can also use ribbon supplied by the customer.
