About us

Classic Crackers is a family run Christmas cracker manufacturer in the Quantocks hills in the heart of Somerset. One Christmas we decided to splash out on some expensive crackers as we were tired of buying cheap crackers that didn't work and were filled with throw away gifts. However after buying the more expensive crackers we were still not impressed and thought we could probably do better. And so Classic Crackers was born!

What started as a part time business has grown into a full-time occupation. Initially our market was aimed at the luxury end of Christmas crackers but it became apparent very quickly that our customers wanted crackers for occasions other than Christmas. And it is impossible to purchase crackers on the high street after Christmas. This gave us the idea to make wedding favour crackers, for birthday parties, Burns night and companies for corporate events.

We hand roll every cracker to order. We don't use cheap foil boards imported from China. We source high quality papers which we hand cut, perforate, roll and tie to make the perfect Christmas cracker. We use a rigid centre tube to strengthen the cracker and protect the content. Cheaper crackers are made with card and are easily squashed and damaged. Ours are not!

We do our best to make our crackers as eco friendly as possible. Many of our papers are FSC certified. Our crackers can be fully recycled too. Even the inner tube is biodegradable and can be used in the garden for setting out seeds! Many of our decorations and bows can be removed and reused to decorate packaging. Finally we try and source gifts that people will find useful. There is nothing worse than finding a Christmas cracker filled with a junk gift that will end up on a refill site.

We employ local people working from home who are skilled craft workers. They all live within a few minutes drive of our industrial premises and make our wonderful crackers in the comfort of their own homes and at the pace that suits them.

When you order your Christmas crackers from Classic Crackers you can relax in the knowledge that you have bought a quality product made to the highest standards here in the UK, while in the process supporting our local community workforce using FSC and eco friendly products wherever possible.
