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!

Perfect Party Puzzles

All puzzles are good to do with a friend, some are just easier! The new puzzles offered by PSI are round-table puzzles, or four-fronts puzzles. That just means when everyone sits around the table, they’re going to have a part of the puzzle that is facing them—not upside down, or at another weird angle—making them perfect for throwing a puzzle party or for having it out on Thanksgiving or during the holiday season! If you’re looking for a good family-based, easygoing activity, this is the perfect idea.

National Pet Memorial Day

The second Sunday of September (the 8th this year) has been set aside as National Pet Memorial Day. There are many ways to honor and celebrate a pet that you have lost, such as dedicating time to an animal shelter or creating a memorial garden in your pet’s honor. We also think a great way to celebrate a pet is by creating a personalized puzzle—maybe your favorite picture of him or her, or the two of you together. It would be a lovely keepsake and you could either glue it and frame it in your home or redo it every year on Pet Memorial Day or your pet’s birthday.
