Waste Free Celebrations

Christmas Re-Crackers: NZ Flora and Fauna


Flora and Fauna Re-Crackers™

This fabric was new for 2022 and designed here in NZ, exclusively for Waste Free Celebrations.

How it Works:

  1. Choose your Re-Cracker fabric. The Re-Crackers come as empty tubes, in a beautiful storage box.
  2. Purchase the Reusable Crowns. This is optional but recommended for the classic Christmas cracker experience.
  3. Your Re-Crackers, the crowns, and the storage box form your base unit which you will reuse for decades to come.
  4. Purchase our Filler Pack so your 12” snaps, jokes, and waste-free tiny gifts arrive on your doorstep each November. Alternatively, just buy the Snap Pack and fill it with your own treats.
  5. Fill your Re-Crackers before Christmas dinner and enjoy!
  6. Throw the crowns and cotton Re-Cracker sleeves in the wash after use, then dry thoroughly before packing away to use next year.

About Christmas Re-Crackers

Introducing our incredible patent-pending Christmas Re-Crackers. All the fun of snapping the crackers and wearing the silly hat without the waste!

Re-Crackers snap apart just like a regular cracker and give the same experience as traditional Christmas crackers.

They're heavy-duty so if a heavy tray of roast potatoes is put on top, they won't break; and they're machine washable if someone drops them in the gravy. Did someone say genius?

Each Re-Cracker is 30cm long and crafted with our selected Christmas fabrics so you can find the best fit for your home and Christmas theme.

You Say Tomato......

Gidday to our Aussie mates across the ditch!!! Even though we speak the same language, sometimes we don't - think togs vs bathers, jandals vs flip flops, duvets vs doonas...... 

What we know as Christmas crackers, you guys call Bon Bons. Same Same!

Keepsake Box

The Set of 8 Re-Crackers can safely store away in their own sturdy keepsake box to keep them in good nick year after year.

Reusable Crowns - Purchase Separately

We have two styles of crowns to choose from.

High-quality wadded Cotton Crowns with velcro fastening to fit any size head. They are machine washable and in a variety of plain colours - perfect to reuse for kids' parties!

A more budget friendly option, is our Wool Felt crowns, with an elastic fastening. They are able to be spot washed, and come in a small and large sizes. 

Filler Packs - Purchase Separately

You need to load the Re-Crackers for use. Our Filler Packs come with the snaps required to make the Re-Crackers 'bang', the jokes and mini novelty items which are all plastic-free and eco-friendly. A subscription is best so you can set and forget!

How to Use

Make sure you watch our video on how to load them, and how to pull them to make sure they work perfectly. The biggest difference with a disposable Christmas cracker is that the snap is not glued in so you need to hold it firmly with one hand, then place your other hand on top to hold the fabric.

If Big Uncle Dave does sit on a cracker and squash the tube, we can replace the cardboard tubing for $3 per half. Hold onto the cotton sleeve as these will last for years.

Buy a set today to reuse for years to come.

Excellent crackers

We loved the Christmas crackers. They were wonderful and it was soooooo nice not having waste paper to toss out and to know that they will be used for all our future christmasses

Jocelyn Howden
good title

The crackers look lovely, thank you. We haven't tried them yet of course.
We do think they are quite expensive, but appreciate the fact that you are having them made with local labour.

Kiwiana Xmas

Have already used my crackers once this season and they were an absolute hit with all our guests. I love that they are bigger in size as it allows me to fill them with a wide variety of gifts - including mini bottles of liqueur ;-) The snaps also work perfectly. Next year I’ll purchase the hats. It is a big investment on purchase but I am certain these will last a very long time.

Part order has still not arrived

Filling for second lot of crackers has still not arrived. When do you expect to send that please?

I've been chasing the whereabouts of your missing items. They were all dispatched together as box 1 of 2 and box 2 of 2, so you should have received 2 boxes from NZ Post. I have lodged a complaint with them to find that missing item. I would like to wait until Friday to see if they can find it. If not, I will re-dispatch.
