Merry Christmas, indeed
Christmas means three things – Harry Potter, cheese and bubbly.
This year we’re being spoiled when it comes to having a very HP Christmas – from Harry Potter baubles, to new Harry Potter pop up books. There’s even a Harry Potter bar opening up where you can create cocktails with an actual wand under the guidance of your own potions master.
We’re also being treated to a cheese advent calendar for those who prefer brie over beauty when counting down the days (although when you actually see the beauty advent calendars on offer this year, you might find it that bit harder to make your mind up).
So that leaves us to sort out the bubbles. And thankfully, the masterminds at Virgin Wines have created Prosecco Christmas crackers to make all of your festive dreams come true.
Forget the days where the gifts are bits of plastic jewellery or the tiniest notebook you’ve ever seen (seriously, what ARE they for?) – now you can pull your cracker knowing that you’ll be getting a mini bottle of booze inside.
All you have to do is pick your pulling partner and be prepared to get very Prosecco happy.
Hands up if these are going on your Christmas shopping list? Same.
The crackers come in packs of six and cost just £32.99. Slightly more than your standard Christmas crackers, granted, but worth every penny extra for what you get inside. You can buy some here.
And if for some reason you’re not a fan of the fizzy stuff, you might be more interested in the brand’s gin and tonic Christmas crackers. Each one contains a little bottle of Bombay Sapphire or Beefeater London Dry gin complete with a can of tonic.
So there really is something for everyone.
Looks like we’ll all be having a very merry Christmas, indeed…
