Creative gifts for Father’s Day

It’s Father’s Day on June 21st and we’ve compiled a list of 10 Kilner gift ideas to give to the dad in your life… 

1) Homebrew Kit 

If your dad is always testing out a range of beers or just enjoys a tipple on the weekend, he might love the chance to brew his own! He’ll have his own brewery in no time, he can make cider, lager or bitter.

2) Personalise a Handled Jar

Add a bit of love to your father’s handled jar with a personalised message; ideal for his favourite beers or soft drinks (but probably beer knowing dad!)

3) Sweet Jars

Has dad got a sweet tooth? Fill a clip top jar up with his favourite snacks!

Even personalise the jar for that extra act of thoughtfulness…

4) DIY Jars

Get creative with your jar designs and give poppa something to store his DIY gear in. He can organise his shed’s paint brushes, tools and even use them to hold all his nuts and bolts!

5) Fishing Tackle Box

Jars are great to arrange his fishing gear.

He won’t want those pesky maggots worming away and he definitely won’t want to sit on his new barbel hooks!

6) Kilner Jar Lights

These are perfect for the stylish contemporary dad… or the ‘always working on something in the shed’ dad who’ll need to light his workshop in the evenings.

7) Toiletries jar…

Present your toiletries gift in a jar, after all, wrapping paper is getting old isn’t it? It’ll even keep mum happy by keeping the bathroom organised!

8) Golf Accessories

FORE! That might have gone over your head, but don’t worry dad is onto it. Get your tee-rrific parent some of his favourite golf gear and he’ll love you even more, guaranteed.

9) Dad a bit of a nutter?

“Dad, I’m nuts about you.” Enough said.

10) Ingredients in a jar

This is either a very subtle hint that dad needs to spend more time in the kitchen, or a lovely way to ask him to help you make your favourite cookies that you can share together.

Kilner Rocky Road Popcorn Makes Movie Nights Magical

Kilner Rocky Road Popcorn Makes Movie Nights Magical

One of the best things about winter is being able to snuggle up on the sofa to watch festive movies.

Gather your loved ones together for a night worth staying in for.

Bring down a duvet, make the popcorn and put a movie on.

Rocky Road Popcorn

Ingredients

-50g salted butter

-70g popcorn kernels

-60g milk chocolate, melted

-65g mini marshmallows

-65g malted chocolate balls

Method

-Melt the butter in a large, deep pan that has a tight fitting lid. Add the popcorn kernels and stir to ensure each one is coated in butter.

-Turn the heat down to low and place the lid on the pan. Leave to cook until you hear popping. Do not take the lid off the pan. Leave until the popping sound begins to slow down.

-Holding the lid down, shake the pan gently to avoid the popcorn burning at the bottom of the pan.

-Remove from the heat and leave the lid on for a few minutes.

-Spread the popcorn out onto a baking tray and drizzle with melted chocolate. Leave to set.

-Next add the marshmallows and malted chocolate balls and combine.

-Fill into Kilner jars as gifts for friends and family or a cheeky snack.
