As Christmas approaches it’s easy to run out of inspiration for Xmas gift shopping. Wares of Knutsford can come to your rescue with plenty of great gift ideas!
Buy sweet jars and fill them with old favourites
One of the simplest but most appreciated gifts this season, a jar full of sweets will be welcomed by anyone – adults or children, friends and family, co-workers, your child’s teacher, your postman, in fact by everyone except maybe people on a diet!
It helps to know if the recipient has a favourite sweet, in which case you go for a whole jar of sherbet lemons or rhubarb and custards or cola cubes whatever is appropriate. However you can also make up mixtures of your own!
Buy sweet jars of all sorts of sizes at Wares of Knutsford, including traditional large glass jars and more modern angled jars. Once the sweets have all been eaten, the jars can be re-used in all sorts of ways!
Sweet jars but not sweets!
If you are buying for people who are a bit health conscious, who are trying to cut down on sugar or who simply don’t like sweets (do such people really exist?!), you can still buy sweet shop style jars to make amazing personal gifts. There are few women out there who won’t appreciate a little pamper package – simply fill a sweet jar with miniature bottles of bath bubbles, body lotion and foot scrub, then add a sachet of face mask, a pair of exfoliating gloves, a nail file and a nail polish. Try and buy pampering treats in co-ordinating colours and complementary scents for a professional looking package, and make sure you add a label and a ribbon. This works as well for men as for women – just change the contents around a little bit to include a smart razor, exotic shaving oil and miniature aftershave samples, a grooming kit and men’s facial scrub and moisturiser.
You can also make jars designed for children – it’s only fair to add a few sweeties, but bulk out the package with plenty of colouring crayons, lego pieces, marbles, small toy figures, socks, a party horn and a bubble blower!
You can construct a sweet jar for crafters to include items such as ink pads, glitter tape, chalk markers, letter stamps, beads, a tape runner, needles, threads, and a roll of twine. A similar idea themed around sewing could include needles and threads, a cute thimble, a pin cushion, scissors and a tape measure, for example.
