Have a Crackin' Christmas with these Beauty Crackers for 2016

I've recently talked about the Beauty Advent Calendars and how they've become very popular over the last few years, but let's be honest they can be too much for our wallets to take. So if you are still looking for a more affordable Christmas treat, I think Christmas Beauty Crackers are a great idea for yourself, a friend or colleague. Mum and I have gotten a set of beauty crackers the last two years and I think now it's becoming a bit of a tradition for us which I love. I've gone on the hunt and these are just some of which really caught my eye. As with the beauty calendar post, I will update if anymore catch my eye so don't forget to drop back and check in.

I've recently talked about this works pillow spray on my social channels and it's something I use regularly to help me towards a more calming night sleep. You get a mini travel size version in this cracker, which I have no doubt will help towards a good night sleep over the busy Christmas period. Available from Avoca, Seagreen, Red Earth, and select pharmacies nationwide.

Just so the men don't feel left out in this post if they aren't into the above, I've found a cracker from a brand my husband likes. This contains Bulldog Original Moisturiser (100ml). I was thrown off when I saw Gift Set and expected more than one item in it, but it will still make the men in our lives know that we didn't forget them when we started cracking open our own beauty crackers!

Will you share or keep theses crackers to yourself?
