Item of the day: Consol's My Jar

With the festive season approaching at a rather frightening rate, we're all starting to think about Christmas colour schemes and gift ideas. That's why simple and unique concepts like Consol's My Jar are always welcome at this time of year. Complete with blackboard labels and their own piece of chalk that bring back classroom nostalgia, these quirky glass jars can be used in a number of creative and fun ways. The obvious is a practical storage solution in the home, be it for loose change or kids' crayons. They're also perfect for storing iced Christmas cookies or chocolate balls, and for serving apple sauce or cranberry jelly on Christmas day. Another great idea is to delight your guests with after-dinner treats in the smaller jars. The options are endless! There's no need to stress too much about what to put inside them, as you can label and re-use them as many times as you wish. Simply rewrite the label in a colour of your choice, and voilà... My Jars are available in a variety of sizes, ranging from a 250ml to a 3L jar, and are priced from around R7. With something this affordable, why not get one in every size? You'll find them at the Consol shop in Woodmead and Stellenbosch, as well as various other outlets. consol.co.za
