If you are one of the many Brits who have made a hobby out of jam-making since lockdowns entered our lives all those months ago, you might want to show off your new skills. Even if you are a seasoned professional at using in-season fruit and vegetables to make jam for friends, family and importantly yourself, you still need to choose the best jam jar for your fruitful efforts. The creativity of jam-making does not stop at the kitchen door when you consider decorative jam jars for showing off your efforts.
The simplification of life since the start of the pandemic has hit us hard but it has also presented all of us with an opportunity to return to the quiet pursuits we enjoyed when we were younger. Once you have chosen the right size glass jar for you from our extensive selection, you can then begin to add adornments as appropriate. Perhaps a red ribbon colour-matches your classic strawberry jam so effortlessly it makes you smile, or maybe you want to try your hand at calligraphy with our labels as a template. Sometimes less is more, and sometimes it feels right to be let loose with a bit of glitter.
A Variety of Sizes
If you are making jam for personal use, the joy of individual discretion really is upon you with regards to which of our decorative jam jars you choose to house your homemade creation. Hexagonal jars have a certain edge that appeals to the eyes (and stomach), however a big batch calls for a large round jam jar to preserve all the goodness you have in store. Since we also supply wholesale, your business can bulk buy our decorative jam jars to package your products and secure a saving simultaneously. If you need any assistance or special accommodation requests, our hard-working team will try their best to assist you
There is nothing more idiosyncratic than giving an especially decorated gift tailored specifically to the recipient with your two hands and a creative mind. The mini jars range we have, from square to hexagonal and more, prove popular as wedding favours due to their charm and ability for customisation. From ‘thank you’ notes on tied-up gift tags to aesthetically pleasing stickers and beyond, our decorative jam jars can be occupied with a filling of your choice for an individualised gift the recipient will adore.

It’s rhubarb season in the UK and whether you’ve grown and harvested your own or have bought some from a shop, there’s nothing quite as British as this deliciously tart and satisfyingly pink vegetable. Despite not being a fruit, the stalk flesh of rhubarb is treated as such and is extremely common in sweet treats like crumble, cakes and jams but can also be used in chutneys and sauces for savoury purposes. With such a short fruiting period and difficulty obtaining rhubarb from the supermarket all year round, the best way to enjoy it throughout the year is to preserve it as a jam. This jam can then be used in all the traditional ways rhubarb is used – whenever you want it!
What You Need
1.The first step is to chop the rhubarb into chunks ang give it a good wash, removing any signs of dirt or debris. Cut them up based on your preference – if you want a chunkier jam then leave them large or for a finer jam cut them small.
2.Next, add the rhubarb chunks to a bowl and add an equal weight of sugar over the top. Stir these together, cover with cling film and set aside for 2 hours. The sugar will draw the juices out of the rhubarb and result in a more flavoursome and brightly coloured jam, but if you are short on time you can reduce the infusion time or skip altogether.
3.Add the jam and sugar to a pan with the zest and juice of a lemon. You could also add other flavourings here such as ginger.
4.If you don’t have a sugar thermometer, pop a couple of plates into the freezer. Bring the jam to a boil and simmer for about 10-15 minutes until slightly thickened. The thermometer should read 180 or alternatively, drop some jam onto the cold plate and wait for a couple of seconds. Once cooled, run your finger through the jam. If it is ready it should crinkly slightly. If not, boil for a few minutes longer and repeat.
5.Finally, pour your jam into sterilised hexagonal jars and cool completely. Store in a cool dark place until ready to use.

Year after year, many of us devote our time to ‘Spring cleaning’ our houses only to end up having to do it again the following year. Whether you love or loath organising, having to do it so often can be frustrating and time consuming, but if you develop a system that works and changes as your home does, then it won’t need to be done as often and will work in tandem with your schedule. We’ve got some tips of getting every area of your home neat and tidy!
Clear the Clutter
One of the most irritating types of mess is clutter that is visible around the house and whether this is stuff the kids dump on the kitchen side or things accumulating on windowsills, it can make an otherwise spotless home seem untidy. The reason that clutter accumulates is because these miscellaneous items often don’t have a set place in the home and so you should create one! Use a large glass hinged jar to store these random things in an attractive manner and keep all the clutter in one place rather than spread out across the house.
Hinged jars can also be used for everyday items such as toiletries, spices, dried goods and oils which may take up counter space in your kitchen or bathroom. Simply give them all their own designated jar and use a label to denote what is inside. If you want to take the aesthetics up a notch, by all matching jars and get some labels printed so that they are easy to read and look neat and tidy wherever they are displayed. The beauty of storing things in this manner is that you can change the jar or the label to suit your décor whenever you decide to redecorate or reorganise!

Getting ready for Easter? Whether you’ve got gifts for children to organise or just want to celebrate the turn of Spring, Easter treats are fun to make, delicious to indulge and can be as simple or as complex, as you like. We’ve put together some of our favourite Easter crafts that will help you get into the spirit of Easter and keep adults and kids alike entertained!
While traditionally the most common craft at this time of year is egg blowing and painting, this can be a fiddly and rather messy affair that results in more than a few broken eggs. Instead, you can craft longer lasting and less wasteful decorations for the house using glass jars. Paint them in springtime pastels and place a candle inside to create a beautiful Easter decoration that can be used year after year. Alternatively, why not make an easter snow globe?! Not just reserved for Christmas, you can create a scene filled with easter eggs, bunnies and chicks and pop them in a jar with some water and glitter, for a twist that the children will get hours of joy from.
Everyone can get involved in an Easter egg hunt but purchasing lots of easter eggs can be a costly endeavour. Instead, buy a bulk number of sweets and fill up some miniature glass jars with them, hiding them around your house or garden. You can decorate them, leave them plain and leave them overnight and they won’t become damaged if the British weather brings on some of its famous April showers.
Easter is all about the chocolate, but that doesn’t mean that adults have to miss out on the fun. If you’re looking for an Easter gift for someone above the drinking age, infusing easter treats into a clear spirit is simple and delicious. Simply add some cocoa beans, sugar and flavourings such as orange or mint to a glass jar or bottle and leave to infuse with gin or vodka.
Lockdown has left us all twiddling our thumbs and finding innovative new ways to keep ourselves occupied from new crafts to working through the to do list. If you’re looking to get organised, rejig the clutter and just have a general tidy up, then glass jars are your new best friend! We’ve got some tips and tricks for using glass jars to organise your home.
If your spice cupboard is in disarray with open bags of this and that and hard to read containers that leave you searching high and low for what you need, then using glass jars can help you to rectify this. Simply decant spices into them and label appropriately. If your spices are kept in a traditional cupboard, then label the lids for easy identification, or if they are in a rack, label the front of the jar.
Buying in bulk can often save money and reduce the amount of packaging used, particularly where laundry detergent is concerned. If you find pouring fabric softener from a heavy and clunky tub difficult, then glass bottles that you refill over time can make laundry that little bit more bearable! Glass jars are also great for soap nuts, powder and tabs, depending on your preference.
Whether you’re an upholstery nut or just have a sewing kit for emergency repairs, we’ve all had to deal with tangled thread before now. Get rid of de-tangling frustration by storing those loose spools in a glass jar which prevents movement and will make the sewing kit tidier.
Admit it – we all have one. That draw where things go to gather dust that we reach into once in a blue moon. It needn’t be difficult to find what you’re looking for though, like with your spices, try to categorise it and store bits and bobs in glass jars for a simple tidying solution.
