I always think it's the little things that make Christmas so special. The novelties like crackers for example, are a bit of fun. The Works have some fun "Make Your Own Crackers" Kits and they are cheap too - Just £2.40 when you use promo code VKING20 at the checkout.
In each set you get nearly everything you need to create 6 full size crackers... name tags, ribbons, mottos, snaps and hats. All you need to add is a wee prize - gin miniatures seem like a good idea to me.
You can Click and Collect your Crackers for FREE from a The Works store near you or pay £2.99 for Home Delivery.
