This year has certainly taken the wind out of our sails. We’ve all been forced to familiarise ourselves with a ‘new normal’ and the world as we know it has changed. As we enter into this second phase of ‘lockdown’, we are all going to be spending more time at home. This may have some benefits; more family time, time for DIY, less chance of unnecessary spending (for some of us anyway!) and perhaps the chance to have a little ‘me’ time. And what better way to quietly pass the hours than with a good jigsaw puzzles? Here’s why puzzles could be making a serious comeback…
Puzzles Stimulate the Mind
Let’s face it, we all spend far too much time getting ‘square eyes’. If we’re not head deep in our mobile phones, then we’re working on the computer or perhaps enjoying our favourite Netflix series on the TV. But none of these pastimes are good for our minds, let alone our eyes. Puzzles provide a much healthier way to ‘switch off’ and relax. Whilst providing escapism, they can also positively stimulate the mind and reinforce connections between brain cells. It has also been proven that jigsaw puzzles improve our mental speed and provide an effective way to improve short-term memory. What a bonus!
With Christmas just around the corner, we are all trying to think of clever gift ideas that we can surprise our loved ones with. ‘Fine Art America’, offers an extensive range of puzzles with beautiful images from animal photography to cute illustrations and stunning landscapes. They come in 500 or 1000 pieces, so there really is something for everyone. And, they don’t have to be a solo game. Puzzles provide a fun activity for all of the family to get involved with.
‘Fine Art America’ also provides the option to customise your own jigsaw puzzles with a photograph or image of your choice. Perhaps you have a favourite pet who you’d love to see in jigsaw form? Or a precious picture of your friends or family? You could create a one-of-a-kind gift for your loved ones this Christmas by creating them their very own unique jigsaw puzzle…and all at the click of a button!
So there we have it; jigsaw puzzles are making a serious comeback! This old-fashioned pastime is getting a new lease of life thanks to ‘Fine Art America’ and we think a personalised jigsaw puzzle would make the perfect unique gift for your loved ones. Not only are they lots of fun for all the family, but they are good for your brain cells! Now there’s a challenge we can get on board with…
