So with the holidays approaching I thought I’d better post something festive on the blog. I know Christmas is about many many things, but let’s talk about something that doesn’t get that much coverage over Christmas but is a well loved part of it. CHRISTMAS CRACKERS. I absolutely loved crackers as a kid, it is one of the good things I think about when I think about Christmas; those little jokes and rubbish toys that you forget about within 10 minutes, but most importantly the snapping sound when you pull them apart. Today I bring you your childhood crackers with gifts you’ll want to keep!
BeZonter is the creation of one of my dearest friends Tamar. We went to secondary school together, so right from the age of 11 I’ve had the pleasure of knowing her and it makes me so happy to see she’s doing something she loves! Tamar has always been entrepreneur, when we were at school she was the girl you’d go to for cakes and chocolates because the vending machine didn’t have half as good as a selection as she did. So whilst we were scoffing our faces Tamar was pocketing away our money because she had the sense to fill the gap. And now here she is doing it again with her Christmas crackers. I should say now that I haven’t been compensated in any way or any of that stuff. I literally ask Tamar if I could write about her products because she’s a star and I love to write.
Tamar’s aim with BeZonter is ‘to create a product that has less of an impact on the environment and a big part of this has been sourcing gifts I think people will treasure and not trash. All tubes and packaging are made from recycled material (although not 100%) or are biodegradable.’
I told you it was your childhood crackers but better and more environmentally friendly! All the crackers are handmade from the softest recycled cotton paper which is hand made and hand printed in India. The crackers are priced different according to their design and what gift option you choose but prices start at £30 and go up to £60. You'll receive 6 crackers with every order. To give you an idea of what sort of gifts you can receive I've included pictures and information below. You'll receive 6 of the gifts in your chosen category along with a snap, hat, joke gift and surprise gift! Now on to the goodies!
