We’re always in the market for delicious jams and preserves, and take great care in taste-testing and enjoying all manner of fruit spreads and marmalades—and gifting them, too. Bonne Maman preserves are consistently some of our favorites, and they've cornered the market on jam-based holiday gift sets ever since the inception of their famous Jam Advent Calendar. Lucky for us, they’ve released a brand new gift box just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Bonne Maman’s “Ten Ways to Say I Love You” box includes 10 sample jars of their most popular varieties available year-round. It includes Apricot, Cherry, Fig, Grape, Honey, Orange Marmalade, Raspberry, Strawberry (2 jars), and Wild Blueberry. Our staff especially loved the fig and strawberry flavors. Each little jar is tucked behind a window (just like the classic advent calendar), to be popped out and enjoyed at your leisure.

Gift this set to delight your friends, your parents, or your sweetheart—nothing brightens a blustery winter day like a good topping for toasts and pastries. If you want even more variety, you can still buy the advent calendar and other mini jam sets on Amazon. These jams deserve a worthy vehicle, so whip up some fresh pastries to share the love, or use them as inspiration and try your hand at making your own.
