The 10 benefits of a 1000 piece puzzles for a jigsaw loving family
- For the cost of a jigsaw, you get hours and hours and even days worth of entertainment – which makes it awesome value for money
- You can spend 5 minutes playing it or 5 hours – however long you have got is always enough time to have a play with a jigsaw
- It suits every personality type, from speedy can’t focus for long types to those who can sit for hours and never get bored. It suits people who love to dive right in and those that love to plan. My daughter likes to attack certain areas of her puzzle whilst I like to line up the edges first. It suits us all.
- Images can be really pleasing. We often do seasonal 1000 pieced puzzles and they get us in the mood for the season e.g winter images conjure up thoughts of hot chocolate and Christmas and snowman and spring images make us think of beautiful flowers, baby lambs and Easter eggs. It is the perfect way to help you look towards and embrace the new season
- It gets kids off screens and is a great way to encourage them to do something with you and have a chat in the process and puzzle come with all sorts of topics or imaginations to enchant them. You can dsee a range of 100o piece puzzles here.
- It works for each and every member of the family from the youngest to the oldest and is a brilliant way to get kids connecting with their grandparents or to get siblings bonding.

- People who drop into your home cannot help but pick up a piece of your jigsaw puzzle and try and fit it in. They are just so enticing. A lovely ice-breaker too if people are feeling a little socially awkward.

It can capture a memory of on occasion or of a place, perhaps a holiday? Or it can just be a lovely photo of your pets or the whole family together. Such a special gift idea.
