So DD and me are making the crackers this year, wooooo.

Anyway I can't think of things to go in as treats. It's hard to think of small presents for adults and kids.

Will watch this thread as thinking of doing this but am slightly daunted by finding 13 cheap and cheery but not crap giftette.

there are a million and one places that sell party bag gifts for kids.That sort of thing might do it for you.

personally though I would prefer something like a mini bar of high quality chocolate (Green and Blacks, Hotel Chocolat etc), a VERY bad joke and a home made hat.

Here's a VERY bad joke for you. What did the tick say to the clock? What are you tocking about.

I'm going to use that one

I've done home made crackers and I put in a scratchcard (that was fun, hoping someone had won £££ for xmas). Nail polish..(max factor ruby fruit is exactly like chanel rouge noir)photo key rings of DD in a santa hat for grandparents ones, funky costume jewellery...posh pens.. I just used to look randomly in shops at anything that would fit down a loo roll ha ha.

jewellery items
mini torch
tiny handbag size pen
magic facecloth (expands in water)
Thorntons truffle pud or yule log
miniature toiletries (split multi packs)
tiny executive puzzles
seed packet or plant labels for gardeners
novelty erasers, pencil sharpeners
super bouncy balls
tiny figures (Polly Pocket, Playmobil, Lego etc)
plastic animals
tiny matchbox type cars (can often get multi pack and split up)
stickers (rolled up)
choc lolly or Lindt mini reindeer, snowman or Santa
bookmark adult or child type as long as you can make it fit.

Presumably you will label each cracker for a particular person, so will have some idea of what to put in for them.

I like the lotto ticket idea...and a chocolate grin

I did them with bits of tat from Hawkins Bazaar. Some were a success, some really weren't, but it's probably worth a look.
