When I was just a young kid, I loved putting pieces of jigsaw puzzles together. Puzzles are a great tool in child development, such as physical skills (holding puzzle pieces and making them fit), cognitive skills (solving the problem from the puzzle) and emotional skills (learning patience and are rewarded by completing the puzzle). There are also claims that if you actively solve jigsaw puzzles or activity similar to such, you might be less prone to Alzheimer’s, Memory loss and dementia. But enough about that, I’ll tell you why puzzles makes a great personalised gift idea

If you’re looking for a gift for kids, personalised puzzles makes a great gift for the child. Apart from its developmental benefits, being able to customise your own puzzle cuts down on the time you spend trying to find the perfect puzzle. Some puzzle are too hard, some too easy. And what’s worse, you can’t find one with their favourite cartoon on it! If you made your own puzzles on the other hand, you can decide the level of difficulty and have your pick of whatever cartoon you want.

Puzzles has a lot of potential to be more than just a leaning or playful activity. The beauty of a jigsaw puzzles is that unless you have a picture to guide you through putting the pieces together, you won’t know what you’re making sense of until the end. With that said, puzzles are a great way of surprising someone with a meaningful message. From “I love you” to “Will you marry me?”, you can customise your puzzle to whatever message you see appropriate. After all, a gift isn’t a gift without a surprise!
