Many of you will have noticed that I often blog about jigsaw puzzles as it is one of my favourite hobbies. I find piecing together a puzzle is so satisfying and provides a great sense of achievement! Besides that, it is a great work out for the brain and can be beneficial for improving problem-solving, motor skills and eye coordination for all ages.
As Christmas is drawing near, it is time to think about how to surprise your loved one with a very special gift! If it has to be something personal, I think that there is nothing better than custom puzzles. Create your custom puzzle from unforgettable moments, family portraits, funny snapshots, beautiful holiday memories or artwork of your own, in minutes. You will certainly stand out from the others and be able to relive all those wonderful moments and memories again while putting the pieces of your puzzle together.
Creating such a custom puzzle is not difficult at all. Simply select your favourite photograph and upload it on fineartamerica website. It didn’t take long and I have uploaded a photo of our dog Mabel. She is our cute little sweetie pie who has just recently come to live with us a week ago. She is my daughter’s buddy dog from The Guide Dogs and through her, we hope she can help my daughter increase her physical activity and build confidence around people.
You have an option to choose a 500 piece £22.17 or 1000 piece puzzle £29.56 (prices are correct at the time of the print). You can also reduce or enlarge the photo image either to increase or reduce the background of your image. The puzzle can be vertical or horizontal so don’t worry about your image being portrait or landscape. Then Voilà! The site will instantly show you how the puzzle will look and the puzzle storage box too!
The puzzles are made from premium 0.2” thick paper stock with unique shapes and include a semi-gloss coating on the top surface to make the image pop. A perfect gift for anyone!
Of course, if you prefer not to personalise the puzzle, you can also gift a ready-made puzzle which will be a time-filler for the long winter season! Jigsaw puzzles employ a host of skills like long and short term memory, cognitive flexibility, deductive reasoning, mental rotation and visuospatial perception. They use are a great mental workout and use both sides of your brain too!
