My Memory Maker Jar

A couple of months ago I won a giveaway by Gemma at SunshineOnACloudyDay in association with MemoryMakerJars where I was given the opportunity to choose a customized Memory Maker Jar of my choice! 

I've made one myself, but nothing on the scale of those offered by MemoryMakerJars - there are soo many different options to customize the jar to your specific requirements and to make it perfect for the recipient! 

I chose to dedicate the Memory Maker Jar to me, myself, and I. I want to capture the amazing and 'never forget' moments as I graduate from University after 3 long years and venture into the big wide world all on my own.
Memory Maker Jar; £9.95 - Postage and Packaging; £3.20
The jar resembles a Kilner jar; the look and opening. It's very large in size and as you would expect, quite heavy. The glass is really clear and shiny which adds to the pretty affect and idea of the product. The clasp is usable but the metal is quite flimsy for a large jar but it works all the same and I haven't had any problems with it!

When composing my Memory Maker Jar, I was presented with many options to ensure it was customized to my expectations as much as possible. You have to obviously give your basic information; email address, postal address but first, I had to choose what type of memory maker jar I wanted. There are soo many options and varieties that I was spoilt for choice; Birthday's, Holidays, gifts for Mother's and Father's Day, Newborns etc. but in the end I chose the 'Classic' option :)

You're given the option to name the personalised tag for the recipient, date of the birth, birthday, wedding etc. As it was for me, I chose my name and the date that I would graduate, July 2014. You then have to choose the colour of ribbon. As you can see, this sits round the top of the jar and sets the colour scheme of the jar contents. There are more to choose from here than previous options; every colour you can think of from Baby Pink to Royal Blue and what's more impressive is that there are additional option of coloured ribbons with little images and text printed on them like 'Pencils' and Red with 'LOVE' text which is pretty much appropriate for a lot of recipients!

Lastly, I was given the option to add any additional info. I think this is an extremely useful option box. It gives you, the creator, to add any information you feel will be helpful to the creator in order to personalise your product to the best ability and quality possible. I used this option to inform MemoryMakerJars that I was soon graduating from Uni after my 3 years of study and looking forward to the future.

When my personalised memory maker jar arrived, it had to be signed for. I like this as it ensures you receive the product and gives you a bit more piece of mind, especially if you've paid for it yourself. The box was also labelled with a few 'fragile' stickers as it - helping to prevent unnecessary damage.

 The fragile glass jar is quite big and I must say, it was packaged really well! It was wrapped in a lot of bubble wrap for protection and pink tissue paper - matching my pink ribbon request, sat on top. This was the first thing I saw when I opened the box so it was a nice touch! Inside, there was everything you need to start creating the memory maker jar; instructions, a pretty business card and a wad of pink, red and white coloured card tied with a pencil. This also means you can create and use your own card if you wanted.

I definitely want to look into getting my little niece one of these! I live a couple of hours drive away from her and it would be lovely to see what she comes up with in a year!
Price; 4 STARS £9.95I won this memory maker jar. At just under £10 it's a good present! It's a great personalised product, not too cheap and not too expensive! Postage and packaging is an extra £3.20, which i think should be included in the overall price so it doesn't confuse people.

Ease of Use; 5 STARS The memory maker jar is really easy to use. The instructions make it extra clear and as it comes with everything already, you're all set to start ASAP!

Would I Recommend to a Friend?; YES If you put your mind to it, you could probably use the concept and create your own, but if you wanted it ready made professionally, this is a great product by MemoryMakerJars. There are a lot of options to create a memory maker jar specifically for you.


  1. This is indeed a lovely gift, I would probably make one out of a jar myself but the included tag and note paper are a really nice touch x

  2. Such a cute idea!!
    This would be perfect for a babys first year!!
