We’ve had the beauty advent calenders (and plenty of them) but brands are also delving into Christmas crackers which are great for secret santa gifts and stocking fillers. Here are my top ten from some of the brands I love.
10. Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily Cracker
At no. 10 it’s the christmas cracker from Molton Brown. Containing a handcream, body wash, and lotion it’s a great stocking filler that will make you smell heavenly. Priced at £20 it’s more on the expensive side but if you know someone who loves Molton Brown this is perfect for them. It also comes in a variety of different scents.
9. Nuxe Holiday Skin Care Cracker
Unlike most of the christmas cracker offerings this year, Nuxe have put in some great skincare staples all for a great price at only £10. Containing four travel sizes of their Rêve de Miel Nourishing Hand and Nail Cream, Micellar Cleansing Water, Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil, and Crème Prodigieuse Anti-Fatigue Moisturising Cream- this cracking content is supposed to give you party glowing skin.
8. St. Tropez Classic Cracker
Know a girl/guy who loves tanning and got them for your secret santa? Then look no further than this brilliant mini gift set. Containing St. Tropez’s iconic lightweight mousse it delivers a natural, streak-free finish and even comes with a tanning mit to apply it. At only £8 it’s an absolute steal and will get them ready to glow at the christmas party!
7. Caudalie Vinosource Christmas Cracker
Another great stocking filler for the skincare addict this Caudalie number comes in at an amazing £10. Containing 3 of their Vinosource range, the SOS thirst quenching mask, moisturising sorbet, and cream mask, it’s sure to give your skin the boost of hydration it needs in the winter months. Give it to a friend who loves to travel for an ultimate pick me up when they are away.

3. This Works Sleep Spell Cracker
For a relaxing touch for a friend who can’t sleep or for a family members stocking, add this sleep spell cracker to drift off anyone who uses it.

2. Cowshed Wreath Cracker Skin Care Kit
Cowshed is one of my favourite skincare brands and for a couple of years running have produced a great christmas cracker. Containing two winter skin must-haves- cow slip soothing hand cream and the lippy cow lip balm; it has pure essential oils to sooth and soften the skin. Add it to your christmas list or get it for a friend at only £10.
- Jo Malone London Christmas Cracker
And at the top of list is the most luxurious of them all. Jo Malone’s £33 cracker contains the Mimosa & Cardamom Body Crème, Basil & Neroli Cologne, and Blackberry & Bay Body & Hand Wash. It’s definately the most indulgent and expensive, however if you have never tried any of the Jo Malone range it is a great set to get you started.
I hope your Christmas goes off with a BANG!
