Cracker Gift List.
This jolly Clockwork Tin Father Christmas will create instant fun on your festive table.
Every little girl is a princess on Christmas Day...and let's be honest, the older ones too! This delightful Clockwork Princess comes in three different colour ways.
You won't be able to cover the house and garden but you will be astonished at how this Magic Snow expands to 100 times its original volume. Simply add water to create your very own amazing White Christmas...and the beauty is, left to dry out you can use it over and over again!
This great little chap has a habit of regularly stealing the festive limelight. The Parachute Penguin is the sort of daft nonsense that makes Christmas a lot of fun.
We don't know anyone who hasn't been completely bowled over by this delightful pair. The cheerful Snowman and Santa clockwork figures merrily plod along when wound up.
The popular animal version (scroll down further) has been around for a long time but now we have Christmas Tongue Rollers! In four great designs we give these a huge thumbs-up! There was never a cuter way to be a tad rude!
I grew up in a decade of austerity and no television, so that's my age out of the bag! But as a consequence we had to be incredibly inventive by making our own toys and entertainments, especially around Christmas time. We would have loved these Fairy Tail Finger Puppets. In six magical designs, they are perfect for the child with imagination.
An extremely smart pair of enamelled penguin cufflinks for the man who takes a pride in finishing touches. A quality festive item.
£4.95 a pair
This wonderfully festive Christmas Charm Bracelet will create an instant wow.
Who doesn't love a Snow Globe and finally there's one that will fit inside a cracker! These are a total delight...just make sure you don't pull your cracker anywhere near a stone floor!! (four characters)
A quality wooden Christmas Slide Whistle, hand painted in four festive designs.
Put on a puppet performance that's worthy of any Christmas panto with these Festive Finger Puppets. The puppets have wooden heads and fabric bodies that are beautifully detailed. Father Christmas, The Snowman and Rudolph make up the three designs.
A beautiful handmade fabric Christmas Trinket Box for that special present you might want to give on Christmas Day. Made to fit exactly into our crackers, each box measures approximately 1 1/4" (3cm) square by about 1 1/4" (3cm) deep. The boxes come in several different festive fabrics.
Festive Santa and Reindeer Torch Key Rings just made it into this years gift selection. Our reindeer's eyes light up and that's not all, he also has floppy ears. Not to be outdone, Santa has three coloured flashing lights on his hands and head. Both play Jingle Bells in a style that would try the patience of a saint.
It went missing from our gift list last year and in consequence we had several (shall we say, animated) phone calls. We're happy to report that it's now safely back in all its glory...The Bling Cinderella Pumpkin Coach Key Ring.
Now in four Christmas designs may we introduce you to our Festive Lip Gloss.
There can be few things nicer than entering a home at Christmas that is perfumed with the fragrances of the season. These Christmas Fragrance Oils were a huge hit last year but be warned, they do go quickly. There are five different fragrances and if more than one is ordered we will send an assortment.
Christmas Tree; Orange; Mulled Wine; Christmas Wreath and Frankincense & Myrrh.

This is one of our top five cracker gifts and a great way of breaking the ice at Christmas. These splendid little champagne flutes are full of bubbles, so get blowing!
A wonderful compliment to the champagne flutes! Great as a cracker gift or table decoration...pretty bubbles everywhere!
An ingenious eraser that arrives as a puzzle! Affordable fun, this is a highly recommended cracker gift.

A great little collection of four Farm Animal Erasers.

If anything was designed to put a smile on your face, it's got to be one of these delightful Russian Doll Key Rings. Beautifully painted in lovely bright colours this is a great little cracker gift.
These Steel Link Puzzles, popular for generations, are a lot of peoples favourites. Take them apart and then see if you can put them back together again. (assorted designs)
The Magic Cup is a classic trick that has intrigued generations of budding magicians. Full instructions are provided and it fits beautifully inside a cracker. We have been shamelessly camping around with these, inventing the most preposterous magical words before the big reveal. Great fun!
We're incredibly easy to please here. There were screeches of excitement when we found that these Ball Poppers fitted neatly into a cracker. They pack quite a punch too, hitting the ceiling with ease...you might be better off outside! Great addictive fun, requiring a little bit of skill!
The little brother of the Ball Popper, smaller but just as big when it comes to creating fun.
The Ball Blow Pipe. Affordable fun and something that's sure to bring back a few memories.
The Classic Bouncy Ball. The small ball that packs a big bounce!
Although these are sold individually we had the greatest fun watching someone's face when we dropped a great many on their kitchen floor. The reaction was priceless, they really are that convincing.
Pull any part of the ever popular Stretchy Smiler and he'll about double in size!
Fill with water and the Squirting Fish will do exactly what it says on the can. Then run...
Sold individually...this is a monkey eraser on a pencil that comes in three bright colours. I can say no more!
A fun pen, disguised as a rather large vitamin tablet. Various colours available.
The Extra Large Dice makes quite a nice display piece as well as being great fun when playing games! Made of wood, this is a nice quality piece. (assorted colours)
A delightful little Mini accessory clip decked out in the Union Jack. This most affordable and very British Icon has a lot of appeal and is small...about the size of the charms you used to find in Christmas Puddings.
This wonderful little chap has a secret under his wings, just press his ears together and he'll reveal what it is! Attractive, smart and useful, The Owl Fob Watch remains a great favourite and comes in a chrome and black finish.
Now here's jolly! The Alarm Clock Fob Watch and Key Ring. This has a larger face than our other fob watches, measuring 2cm in diameter. He may not wake you up in the morning but you'll know he's around!
The Ladybird Fob Watch is as popular as ever, and like the owl and the butterfly keeps a secret under her wings. (assorted finishes)
A delightful little cat fob watch that might just turn out to be lucky. A definate choice for the cat lover.

Gloriously over-the-top The Bling Ladybug Fob Watch is a real show-stopper. Not for the faint-hearted. (assorted colours)
LED Flashing Key Rings
We resisted for as long as we dared but finally here it is. The Minion Torch Key Ring. Press its head and it will light up and scream at you. Always remember, without a master to grovel for a Minion will fall into a deep depression...my idea of a dream partner! I never said that.
As well as two eyes that light up very brightly, this cute Owl Torch Key Ring will also give you a hoot for luck...what more d'you want from life!
Just DON'T put it in your bath!! The Rubber Duck Torch and Key Ring quacks too...enough said!
I'm not entirely confident that the noise our gorilla makes would frighten anyone (akin to a clock being wound if you go back that far) but the Gorilla LED Torch does win with charm.
This is a great cracker gift and way too cute for its own good! Press the button on the back of The Penguin Torch and he'll give you a squeak...oh yes, and he'll light up too!
Wasn't there a story about three little piggies and the state of the construction industry?
Don't ever be in any doubt about pigs being the cleverest of all the farm animals because not only does this Pig's snout light up it oinks as well. Clever or what!?
For dedicated followers of Jediism this could be a positive inspiration to fight evil. We're not entirely sure what Darth is saying in his all too brief message but we feel convinced it's something horribly menacing!
Daft and fun, we must all know someone for whom this would be the ideal cracker gift.
For the out-of-touch, this is the BB8 Droid from the Star Wars universe. The usual histrionics, press its head and it lights up and makes a terrible racket.
The Storm Trooper Torch. Guess what...press his head and his eyes light up and he makes a noise not dissimilar to a gun firing. Good luck if you're trying to recover on Boxing Day.
We launched this to celebrate the Queen's 90th Birthday...and so popular was her majesty that here she is again! As well as two very bright LED eyes, this wonderful Torch and Key Ring also gives you a rousing rendition of Rule Britannia. Thank-you Ma'am.
To compliment the Queen's Torch, we present one of her loyal Guardsmen. Like Her Majesty his LED eyes light up very brightly and he too gives a rousing rendition of Rule Britannia.
The Bicycle Valve Light was a runaway best seller last year and it's not difficult to see why. This wonderful, easy to attach, bicycle accessory can transform your wheels at night-time with a seemingly endless choice of colour combinations.
£4.95 per pair
Lights and Torches
Cracker gifts for men can be a bit of a challenge and it's hopefully one that we rise to with this very smart reproduction miniature Police Torch. It comes with a battery
This is another useful little pocket torch. Compact, handy and bright...this Light is the perfect ''whatever you need'' light.
It has three different settings, Low, High and Flashing
The Laser Light Key Ring doubles as a handy torch and if that wasn't enough it also has a hidden stylus under the cap that's perfect for operating touch screen devices. A great gift!
Find your keys or any other items easily. Remote control by sound. Whistle or shout to make it beep and flash. Can also be used as an LED light.
Press the switch and the torch will light your way. Pull apart and there is a Phillips and Flat Blade screwdriver inside...there's more...a pen with an eraser in the base.
Per-lease! Neat or what!
We love these! It's such a great affordable cracker gift. Designed to complement an existing key ring, this clever little light bulb changes colour several times in a couple of different sequences. Press twice to switch off.
A no nonsense Alloy Pocket Torch with 9 LED lights. It shines as brightly as a button and comes complete with batteries. (four colours)
We just love the Spark Plug Torch. To light up you simply give the spark plug a little twist or press for shorter light bursts.
Two delightful little lights that start to shine as soon as you release the battery saver. I've used these on cakes but they are brilliant for adding fun to the table once your crackers have been pulled. The price is for 2 of the LED lights, one red and one green.
£1.25 per pair
Hinged at the bottom to open up like a clam shell these pretty Russian Doll Lip Gloss containers come filled with strawberry lip gloss! A perfect cracker gift.
You can't really go wrong with lip gloss...it's a just a matter of choosing which one!!!The Rubber Duck has been going for years and I don't think there's any sign of its popularity coming to an end.
When The House of Crackers first started up nearly a decade ago, The Chocolate Lip Gloss was one of our very first gift ideas. It was a great success but rather irritatingly it disappeared from the radar and we simply couldn't track it down anywhere. The good news is, it's back and it's as convincing as ever! NOT to be consumed! (assorted chocolate...designs)
Owl torches, owl fob watches...only a matter of time before Owl Lip Gloss hit the streets.
You know a foxy lady? Job done! Fox Lip Gloss.
Whoopee Cushion. No comment!
Is the Yo-Yo a classic toy? Well, there's one being used by a boy on a Greek vase dating back to 500BC...so we're going to say, yes! The Mini Wooden Yo-Yo (assorted designs)
Like all great ideas, Roll Tongue Animals are impossibly simply but enormous fun. Just give them a gentle squeeze and be ready for some cute cheekiness!
It's daft, it's been going for years but the Hand Buzzer is still a hoot. No batteries in those days...just wind-up and introduce yourself!
£4.50 eachA Mini Springy that fits into a cracker. Great news! This miniature version (only 3½cm in diameter) is equally as fascinating as the big one. Impossible to put down.
Imagine the fun you can have with these after lights out! Glow in the Dark Jumping Beans are great fun and there are four in a pack!
£2.25 per pack
If size matters then you might appreciate these EXTREME jumping beans! Each one is decorated with a fun character. There are two jumping beans in each bag.
£1.20 a bag
When a certain iconic cube puzzle took the world by storm you can imagine how it broke a few hearts here knowing that it would never fit inside a cracker! However...where there's a will there's a way!
The classic Sky Diver. A little bit like the parachute penguin but decidedly more butch...actually, nothing like the parachute penguin at all!
Apart from fun cracker gifts that are great for breaking the ice at Christmas, we are always on the lookout for gifts that have a life beyond the big meal and this wonderful little trinket box fits the bill perfectly. Hand painted, they are great for keeping small and precious items safe.
A delightful little resin character draped in the Union Jack. A very British Bull Dog with a lot of appeal.
A perennial favourite, this practical cracker gift, has a patriotic touch.
Storm Trooper Cuff Links. A smart affordable gift.
£3.75 per pair
A lattice coloured enamel design set on a stainless-steel cufflink. They have a strong stem with a torpedo type clasp.
£4.95 per pair
This is absolutely my idea of the perfect cracker gift! A sensibly sized (1 fluid ounce) Stainless Steel Hip Flask Key Ring. I mean, what could be nicer than a quick (and maybe surreptitious) shot to warm the cockles of your heart when out for the obligatory Christmas walk.
Mini Pearlescent Hip Flask. A great little 23ml shot, ideal for those bitingly cold days!
Cracker gifts obviously have to meet a certain criteria and hunting the good ones down can often be a frustrating exercise. However, when the good ones come along and tick all the boxes...it's GREAT!
Useful, attractive, affordable, appealing and will last. Mini Metre Tape Measure take a bow!
This incredibly neat piece if multi-functional kit would be great to carry around with you for any kind of emergency. Either attached to your keys or kept in its smart little case with a belt attachment, this really does tick a great many boxes.
We first spotted these at the Science Museum and knew immediately that we had to have them!
Not only do they have a practical purpose in preserving your unfinished wine, they also create a magical lighting effect in the bottle.
Be very sure to read the instructions for these incredible Rattler Magnets carefully. We do not recommend them for anyone under the age of 14 years.
Throw them in the air together and listen to the sound they make! Eerie science at its best!
£1.50 per pair
Now That's Useful
The incredible little bullet shaped USB Car Charger/Adapter. Simply plug it into your cigarette lighter socket and charge up your mobile phone, sat nav, MP3 player...the list is endless

A Stainless Steel Mini Whisk, another one for the little kitchen helpers! Good for your breakfast eggs. Or better still…mixing the perfect G&T!!

Keeping the Children Occupied
One of the very best cracker gifts. A Tube of coloured Pocket Pencils with a sharpener on the lid. Now there's clever!
Cats Cradle. Variations on this ancient game can be found in cultures throughout the world. It is very addictive and because it is designed for two or more players encourages splendid interaction. Extensive instructions are included.
This is the sort of thing that is so stupid and yet so wonderful at the same time, you just have to have it! Read on and be stunned! Submerge your egg in water and in 12-24 hours the shell will start to crack and after 48 hours your chick will hatch!!! Don't pinch yourself...that's what it does! One of last years top five sellers...be warned, it goes quickly.
I should add, it's not the sort that will grow into a hen!
A Mini Telescope that extends and closes. (assorted colours)
Metal Jacks. Another great game from the past...imaginatively boxed and no batteries required.
It Don't Mean a Thing if You Ain't Got that Bling!
A Bunny is not just for Easter! In various pretty shades, this adorable bling and enamel Bunny is a great cracker gift. (various colours)

The Space Pencil Sharpener. In four great designs, this is definitely a cut (no pun intended) above your usual pencil sharpener...complete with orbiting beads!
Who wouldn't be bowled over to find one of these dropping out of their cracker! A most affordable and stylish fashion watch. Me thinks a winner! Supplied with either a black or white face.
Imagine our disappointment when the latest craze wouldn't fit inside a cracker. Then along comes the two blade propeller Infinity Spinner...heavens be praised! We have tried a great many spinners (avoid the cube, very expensive and doesn't spin for long) and this is in a league of its own, it truly does live up to its name. It comes in a smart box (which won't fit inside your cracker) and will help to relieve any stress over Christmas and beyond...mine sits by my armchair. Suitable for adults and children over 10. Not inexpensive but a knock-out cracker gift.
