Dolphin Family from Cobble Hill. 400 pieces. Finished size: 24″ x 18″

A great family-friendly activity for families with kids of varying ages is our special family format puzzles, which includes 3 different sizes of puzzle pieces for little hands, experienced puzzlers, and everyone in-between! If Mom loves puzzles and you want a gift that speaks to that and gives her some great family bonding time, this is it! Wake her up Sunday with breakfast in bed and then spend the day with some quality bonding and puzzle time. For ages 10 and up. Check out more of our family format puzzles to choose a theme that Mom loves!

Route 66 from White Mountain. 1000 pieces. Finished size: 24″ x 30″

landmarks jigsaw puzzles, travel

Landmarks of the World from Master Pieces. 1000 pieces. Finished size: 19.25″ x 26.75″

Does Mom love travel? Whether it be a good old fashioned road trip with a map spread out on her lap, a fancy getaway destination where she can relax in the sun, or a high cultured trip to all the top landmarks in the world, we have plenty of travel-related puzzles she’ll love to put together. If you’re planning a trip together, from a small one to the beach or a big one to Paris, you’ll be able to find a puzzle related to your travel destination! If you took some family vacations when you were growing up, find the perfect puzzle that reminds you of that summer visiting the Grand Canyon or all those trips to beautiful Florida during spring break. Build the puzzle together and reminisce as you laugh over old memories and create new ones together.

 

On that same note of reflection, outdoors puzzles are great for the mom that took you fishing on the lakes and pitched the tent in the forest so you could sleep under the stars. If your love of nature came from her, remind her this Mother’s Day!

National Park Badges from White Mountain. 1000 pieces. Finished size: 24″ x 30″

Catching Memories from Master Pieces. 1000 pieces. Finished size: 13″ x 39″

 

If you want to go a different route, get something for her that reminds her of when she was young–whether that be through the styles of the good old days or the entertainment. Complete the gift of an Elvis puzzle with a companion Elvis CD she doesn’t yet own, or rent some I Love Lucy DVDs and let her tell you all about the things she grew up with.

America Back Then from Willow Creek Press. 1000 pieces. Finished size: 26.625″ x 19.25″

I Love Lucy Collage from Aquarius. 1000 pieces. Finished size: 20″ x 27″

If themed gifts are your thing, get her or make her some delicious treats and pair with a similar food-themed puzzle.

Chocolates from Eurographics. 1000 pieces. Finished size: 19.25″ x 26.5″

Find her a subscription to a magazine she loves with a matching puzzle featuring a vintage cover…

Good Housekeeping – Bath Time from New York Puzzle Co. 300 pieces. Finished size: 20″ x 27″

…Or get her seeds to plant a garden as beautiful as one she’d envied from a jigsaw puzzle cover!

Tulip Garden from Springbok. 1500 pieces. Finished size: 28.75″ x 36″

Alternately, you could get her two sorts of flowers: a fresh bouquet and matching flower puzzle to last all year long! Help her put it together and frame it and she’ll have a keepsake to go along with a great memory of Mother’s Day 2014.

Colorful Market Flowers from Lafayette Puzzle Factory. 1500 pieces. Finished size: 23″ x 33″

We could go on forever but your Mom is unique and her hobbies and interests will reflect that. You know her best, we’re just here to help with dozens of themes to help you find the just the right gift that shows that!

New Jigsaw Puzzle App from Ravensburger Digital

Got an empty schedule this Saturday and finished all your jigsaw puzzles lying around? Well, now there’s something out there that will let you keep puzzling while you wait for a new order in the mail or until you’re ready to trek over to the store. The new Ravensburger Puzzle App is $2.99 on the iTunes store. Designed specifically for the iPad, this app lets you do jigsaw puzzles from the comfort of your couch. You won’t have to bend over the craft table, worry about the glare on the pieces, or shoo the cat away so he doesn’t ruin your hard-sorted puzzle pieces. You can complete this puzzles from anywhere with a WiFi connection–that’s great for those people that want to wind down in the coziness of their bed just before going to sleep!

With your $2.99 purchase you’ll get six puzzles to choose from, three tutorials, relaxing background music, and eight table themes. You’ll get to keep track of your achievements and leaderboards via Game Center, and the best part of all–you get the freedom of choosing your piece count!

From 20 to 500 pieces, you get to make the choice that’s best for you. No longer do you have to eye a puzzle with a great image but wish it came in the right piece count! Now you can make it happen with the click of a button.

The in-app puzzling should come naturally to those that love jigsaw puzzles. The pieces will be scattered randomly over the screen, and there will be a drop-bar tray for safekeeping of those pieces you want to save for later (you’ll never be able to lose a piece again!). There will be a snap sound alert when you’ve fit a piece into the correct spot by moving and rotating, and a handy image as a reference that you can place for your convenience.

Don’t like the six puzzles offered with the initial purchase price or itching to the perfect puzzle for your iPad? The app also comes with a built-in library where you can purchase more puzzles for an additional fee and search by theme or release date.

This is the perfect solution for people without a lot of space to do their puzzles or people that just love their iPad!

NEW Theme: Outdoors

You might recognize some of these jigsaw puzzles from out site, but now we’ve added a theme to help you find just the puzzle you’re looking for!

With some new 2014 puzzles and some that were previously sorted into themes that weren’t quite right, the brand new “Camping and Outdoors” theme is for everyone that loves pitching a tent for the night, hiking up the mountain, and the wonderful views that accompany these activities for those that love to be out in nature–whether that be in the forest or on the lake!

These are the puzzles that should be packed to take to the cabin you visit in the summer or thrown in the camper when you’re leaving behind civilization for a few days. With these serene and idyllic scenes, you won’t be able to wait for the warm weather and vacation time to get out of the house and into the outdoors!
