Celebrate each milestone, birthday or anniversary with Gratitude Glass Jars, which has released its inspirational jars so your customers can enjoy every special moment in their life.
Founded and designed by Claire Summers, the jars are handcrafted and feature wooden elements and 365 bronze foiled daily notes which can be customised.
“My jars are about capturing the spirit of living, life events, moments, memories and words of love,” she says.
“Life is short, words go unsaid, and values not lived. They must be captured, remembered and shared before the opportunity is gone.”
After going through a rough six-month period, Summers started writing daily notes of gratitude to herself to dig deep and rediscover beauty in the important things in her life.
“The daily practice of expressing gratitude allowed me to see beauty again through all the darkness, seeing life and the future through a positive lens. Ultimately leading to where I am now where I can begin each day with an open heart and truly be thankful for the beautiful world around me and the people that form part of my life.
“My Gratitude Jars and the supporting range bring awareness to your life, allow you to change how you view your problems, to talk to yourself kindly and to be able to share your experiences with others, to ultimately heal and move forward.”
Summers’ glass jars won the 2017 Best New Product award in the lifestyle gift category at NY NOW last month after being on the market for only a short amount of time, competing against hundreds of international brands.
“NY NOW is the place for many buyers to discover the newest products for their stores, and these awards recognise 10 outstanding products from across the Market," says Randi Mohr, group show director, NY NOW and vice president, Emerald Expositions.
“This year’s Best New Product awards winners truly push the envelope delivering superior, stunning and on-trend products in a variety of categories.”
