​Why it's time to stock up on sweets in jars

Posted by The Wares Team on 1st Dec 2021

There are so many people to buy presents for at Christmas, and it often gets harder and harder to keep on track with all of your gifting plans, especially for those 'harder to pick' people, such as extended family and those who end up with a last-minute addition to your list!

So it makes sense to prepare some universal Christmas gifts that will delight everyone, whether you want to treat the neighbours' children, bring something to a tombola collection or add some extras to your relatives' present stashes!

Sweets in jars make a fantastic gift on a number of levels. Firstly, who can resist their favourite confectionary, especially if it has been chosen with their great sweet loves in mind? Secondly, glass sweet jars make a fantastic addition to any kitchen and they can be used time and time again. Thirdly, glass jars look wonderful filled with sweets and these gifts are a real visual masterpiece, especially when finished with fancy ribbons, bows and tags.

So what is the best way to approach your quick and easy festive gifting project?

1. Choose vintage sweets

Toffee, peppermint and fudge all have that vintage appeal and they look delicious too. For younger children, you could also choose wrapped sweets, lollies or dolly mixture type sweets, especially for mini glass jars. Think about the colour and storage of your sweets and consider proportions. Large glass sweet jars will look really pretty filled with fluffy marshmallows, for example. Medium-sized jars would look great with fudge or colourfully wrapped toffees.

2. Pick your glass jars

There are plenty of glass sweet jars to pick from, and many have fancy glass patterns and decorations for that vintage feel. Pretty glass jars also look beautiful stored in a kitchen or on a sideboard. Choose different sizes according to your preferred gifting needs. Tiny glass jars with screw top lids are lovely for stocking filler sweets. Large fancy jars with clip lids or Kilner and Mason style jars are wonderful for giving a high-impact finish and they can be used for years to come as well. These sweet jars will look so pretty lined up next to each other on a kitchen sideboard or in a pantry for storage. You can see a wide range at Wares of Knutsford here:

. Look out for sweet jars that stand on their sides for easy access (also great for other kitchen essentials and ingredients) and sweet little themed jars such as teddy bear-shaped jars. You can even buy your jars in bulk to save money or to allow you to create sweet jars in larger numbers - ideal for a kitchen table business or to help out a school fete.

3. Decorate to suit

You'll see that some of the glass jars for sale are already fancy enough to need minimal decoration, such as those with glass-topped lids for serving and presentation and those with decorated lids. All of these glass storage jars are fun to personalise and to decorate for Christmas gifting though. Simply stock up with a selection of ribbons, tags and bows and use your imagination. Raffia and red gingham bows have a country feel. Character themed ribbons sand tags are great for children and large metallic or velvet bows provide a wonderful touch of luxury. You could even decorate the glass with glass paints or sparkly star stickers or metallic spray. If you look on Pinterest you'll find plenty of inspiration and many of the ideas are very easy to make yourself.
