Thanks for Thanksgiving
We all know the turkey is a key party of Thanksgiving celebrations, but fun family time together is also a must! Crackers are a brilliant way to get the party going – check out our range. We’re also delighted to share the most yummy Thanksgiving sides and leftover tips, and a few of our favorite Thanksgiving jokes!
Not just for Christmas, they look fabulous on the Thanksgiving table too, along with a gorgeous plate, place card and napkin. Choose from our Pilgrim crackers, with traditional designs, or our funky Turkey Crackers with a bright tail feather and orange cord legs. Each contains a party hat, gift (the Pilgrim crackers have a wonderful wooden keyring) and joke. We also have a great range of Thanksgiving place cards and tableware to go with them.

Best Thanksgiving jokes
Our crackers are full of fabulous jokes, but if you want to keep the laughter going for longer then take turns to tell more jokes. You can write them on cards and pass them around the table. Here are two of our favorites:
"Why didn’t the turkey bake properly at Thanksgiving? I have no idea, but I suspect fowl play!"
"Why couldn’t the Thanksgiving band perform? Someone ate the drumsticks!"
