The first great use of glass and plastic sweet jars is to fill them with somebody’s favourite retro sweets! Why not fill one a jar with somebody’s favourite childhood goodies and complete with their favourite coloured lid and some ribbon for a unique and personal gift that is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. Or if you’re stuck for ideas or feeling spoiled for choice, why not take a look at our range of ready filled, themed Sweet Jars. With everything from Christmas Jars to Spooky Jars to choose from, there is sure to be a sweet jar for every occasion, or simply take a look for some inspiration.

Our Girls Sweetie Jar is one of our most popular jars and is the perfect gift for a female friend or sweet-toothed lady in your life! Available in 3 different sizes to suit every budget, this plastic sweet jar is filled with loads of sugary treats including Chewits, Hubba Bubba, Malteasers and many more that are sure to brighten anyone’s day. Or our Sweet and Sour Jar is perfect for anyone with a taste for all things tangy! Packed with delicious treats including Toxic Waste, Zappers and Mega Sour Balls, this bumper filled jar is sure to get your taste buds tingling and your eyes watering - just be sure not to eat it all at once!

As well as ready packed themed sweet jars, we also have a range of Personalised Sweet Jars to allow you to give a gift that is sure to stand out and to add your own personal touch that will blow somebody away and show that you’ve put in some thought. For example, our Spooky Jar is the perfect gift for any horror film or Halloween lovers out there and contains a huge selection of sweet treats and retro favourites to dig into while tucked up on the sofa. Dig your teeth into a fab and fruity Drumstick Lolly, munch your way through a KP Dip and take a trip down memory lane to your childhood with deliciously simply Milk Chews - along with a few scary sweets of course! Simply type in your own message of up to 3 lines and we will print it on the label and send it right your way.

Another fantastic use for sweet jars is to create your very own sweet bar. Add a truly unique and fun centre piece to a party or give the gift of the ultimate coffee table addition - after all, a full sweet jar is always better than an empty one! For the ultimate sweet jar display or party centre piece, we also stock metal tongs, scoops and bags in various colours so you can create your very own retro sweet shop vibe and to ensure that you are the talk of the town amongst your guests for weeks to come after the big day! Or simply take a look at our readymade sweet bars for a quick and hassle-free option for a party or event. Available in 3 different sizes to suit all budgets and cater for all numbers, our sweet bars contain some of our most popular retro and traditional sweets including Fizzy MixMini Love Hearts and Jelly Babies that your guests will love and are the perfect eye-catching and stunning addition to an event.

Or why not take a more creative approach to a sweet jar gift? One fantastic idea for bringing a boring old jar back to life is to paint it. You don’t have to be an artist to do this - simply grab yourself some glass paints or even some nail varnish and either paint the whole jar one colour, or add a few designs. Why not use stencils for a simple, quick and fool proof way to add a brilliant unique decoration for your home? It’s a gift to be kept and treasured for years to come!

As well as offering a fantastic range of individual gifts, sweet jars also make for a unique and quirky business or corporate gift. We can make branded sweet jars in both glass and plastic with nearly anything you request - the sky really is the limit when it comes to corporate sweets! Etch your brand logo on, print your brand name or even add a personal message to the label to create a unique business gift to really impress customers and clients. Alternatively, we also offer everything from Custom Biscuit Tins to Sweet Hampers to create the perfect corporate gift. Simply get in contact with us today and we’ll be more than happy to help you create the perfect sweet gift.
