Cracking Crackers 2015...

In just 11 days all that will lay ahead is 24 hours of champagne, presents and a copious amount of food. Lunch isn't a meal I particularly savour, I'm usually on the run, in a meeting or manically working to a deadline. And in any case, how interesting can quinoa and grilled chicken really be?! However Christmas lunch is the ultimate exception...all my favourite people together, slightly rosy, wearing paper crowns and squeezing in as much bread sauce and brussels sprouts as humanly possible!


I only ever have two complaints...one - my outfit is never expandable enough to reach my full eating capacity and secondly, I just wish the gifts in the crackers were slightly more exciting than a bottle opener or a teeny tiny notepad!

Problem one is harder to resolve - either opt for comfort and resemble Waynetta Slob from Harry Enfield & Chums, or stick with the mid-lunch outfit change that inevitably occurs each year! 


However problem number two is much easier....this year I've spied the perfect solution to make everyone happy....

Clarins Christmas Crackers, £49 for 6...




Molton Brown for Men, £20 each...


Guaranteed to put a smile on any girl's face, Jo Malone, £32 each...



Satisfy that sweet tooth with the best treat in the world, Charbonnel et Walker Cracker, £7.50...



If cuff links and cashmere socks are more like it, oh and money is no object...then Harrods is your answer, £499 for 6...


All that's left to do is plan a beautiful table setting, i'm dreaming of something along these lines....
