Have you had a decent or useful gift from a cracker.

I have a very small pack of playing cards from Christmas three years ago and they get used fairly regularly when I have young relatives visiting.

I've had some cracking cracker gifts when I've been to posh parties but nothing that has stayed with me. Most excitement is wearing the hat.

I have a small shoe horn from a cracker that I keep in the car.

One of the daftest was a minature 10 pin bowling set, it sat around ike stuff does for a while and then Boriscat was badly injured and had to have his jaw wired up and be tube fed. The vet said he was having problems getting the right stoppers for the feeding tubes for some reason, the pins from the bowling set fit perfectly, I gave the set to the vet when Boris was better and has his tube and wires removed, I thought he'd have more use for them than me.

I'm crackers and if I give gifts I try to make them useful and decent, though of course that depends if it's male or female I'm giving to.

I use two plastic bookmarks which clip onto the page, they both came from crackers.

Yes the Tom Smith crackers yesterday in support of Fare Share had things like a pencil, tweezers, nail clippers and file unfortunately the littlest member got the whistle :( although was banned from blowing it due to the dogs in the house - phew!
A few years ago I got a miniature set of screwdrivers which have come in handy.

My crackers are still in the box. Very difficult to pull when obody on the other end. I did keep a mini magnifying glass for a long time but it eventually got lost.
