Christmas Crackers for Xmas meal?

My SO is British, and Xmas crackers are a critical component of the traditional feast. Yes, it's not a food item technically, but it is so integral to the festivities (well, in the UK at least), that hopefully it's OK for this board.

Last year I was able to get them from the Waltham Costco, but alas, not this year. Yes, we could go to the British Shop on Rt 1, but that's a trek for us (we're in Brookline). Any suggestions for a closer source? TIA.

  1. I saw them last week at the Saugus Christmas Tree Shop, which is obviously not convenient for you unless you are on a Karl's Sausage Kitchen field trip (they are almost across Rte 1 from each other) but you could try calling a more convenient branch to see if they have them too.

      1. Cardullo's in Harvard Square definitely has them.

        I haven't seen them there, but you might want to give Party Favors a call.

        1. Williams Sonoma usually has them.

          1. Just saw them at the Christmas Tree Shop in Somerville.
