On a mission to change habits.
We believe that celebrations are the cornerstone of the most special moments in life, and showing your loved ones you care shouldn’t be at the expense of the planet. Our unique crackers are designed for keeping and enjoying year after year. Choose from our range of plastic-free gift options or fill with your own thoughtful little treats.
How we started.
Kaneo Celebrations was founded by myself, Lucy Ewles and my husband Jonny. After hosting a Christmas party with personalised ‘fill your own’ crackers in 2019, we were horrified at the bin bags full of waste afterwards. We vowed to buy reusable crackers for the following year, but when we started searching, none of the offerings had all the elements we were looking for: beautiful, reusable, personalisable, with a real snap.
A Unique Design.
During lockdown I bought a sewing machine and learnt how to sew from Youtube. Our final prototype has a unique sliding mechanism and sticky snaps as well as personalisable name tags. Instead of throwaway jokes, every nametag has a QR code on the reverse which can be scanned for 'chuckles' & 'challenges' guaranteed to get everyone in the party spirit. We work closely with our Sedex certified manufacturing partner in Hangzhou to ensure ethical and quality standards are met.
Sharing the Magic.
It was really important to us to give back, and we wanted our crackers to bring some Christmas magic not only to the tables of our customers but to those in need as well. Our partnership with The Salvation Army will help some of the most vulnerable members of society this Christmas. We are so proud and excited to bring this product to market, and spread some joy to your home this Christmas.
The name Kaneo comes from the tiny fisherman's village in North Macedonia where we got married in 2018. We fell head over heels in love with the gorgeous church of St John at Kaneo, overlooking Lake Ohrid (which is anything but horrid!) We couldn't resist including this treasured part of our story when designing our brand.
