Gifts for the Jam-Maker in Your Life

We’ve already covered gifts to convert the casual jam lover, as well as gifts to delight a jam fanatic. What to do if your gift recipient makes jam and marmalade? While we think that those who make jam or marmalade are always curious to try new jam flavors, there’s something to be said for catering to your friend’s favorite hobby.

Gifts that are perfect for that special someone who makes jam or marmalade:

We love this Nikki McClure print — it’s a main feature in our office decor! While we love all of Nikki McClure’s beautiful pieces make of hand-cut paper silhouettes, this “process” poster print is a natural choice for jamming and fruit enthusiasts. We think its clean aesthetic and bold, simple colors make it a perfect addition to any canner’s kitchen.

Of course, it’s impossible to love making jam and marmalade without loving Mason jars. Mason jar hand-printed shirts from Etsy seller beryllynn come in vivid pink and green color options, and are printed on soft, high-quality shirts. We love paying homage to our favorite hobby with our wardrobe!

If your friend loves making jam, it’s likely that they have a few jars set aside to give as gifts. We think these “Happy Homey Holidays” letterpress cards from Egg Press are perfect to write a note to go with jam gifts or send out as holiday greetings! They’d also be perfect to frame and enjoy year-round.

Designed and made exclusively for us by our friend Anne Kimball, the Blue Chair Fruit apron is both flattering and functional. Roomy pockets accommodate multiple kitchen utensils, and vertical stripes and cap sleeves assist jammers in looking adorable while making out-of-this-world preserves. We really adore these aprons!

If you’re feeling especially indulgent this holiday season, we’d like to recommend:

Our jam and marmalade classes are truly the best way to take your preserving skills to the next level — Rachel’s teaching focus is on enabling students to create their perfect jam or marmalade at home. We currently have dates for Marmalade Making 101; should your gift recipient prefer to learn the fine art of making jam, we recommend a gift certificate for the cost of one class, to be redeemed in jam season!

The best way to make perfect jam is to use the perfect tools. We are crazy about Mauviel copper preserving pans — they’re all we use in our kitchen! We are currently ordering these pans and are happy to take pre-orders. While we cannot guarantee Christmas delivery, this is one gift worth waiting for! For more information or to place a pre-order, please email

Happy holidays! Don’t forget, we’ll have all of the Blue Chair Fruit products featured above — and more! — at our holiday party next Tuesday, December 14th!
