What are the best jigsaw puzzles to enjoy all year round?
If, like us, you always have a jigsaw puzzle on the table, then it is only makes sense that your jigsaw puzzle is seasonally appropriate!
So here is our seasonal puzzle edit and an interesting fact about each Season because….. well, just for fun.
Fun Summer Fact: In Australia it gets so hot that you can literally fry an egg on the sidewalk. Here is a video of a Perth man making eggs on the sidewalk in 2015 when temperatures reached 46 degrees (that’s 115 Fahrenheit for you American folks).
That is definitely stay inside and jigsaw puzzle weather. But on other summer days you will find us at a glorious Aussie beach.
And so, our Summer puzzle pick would have to be Leopard Rocks by Georgie Wilson. Because we Aussies do love a good beach pool.
Fun Fact about Valentine’s Day: We all know that Valentine’s Day is named after Saint Valentine, but The reason Valentine’s Day is about love is because in the Middle Ages, it was the common belief in France and England that birds started their mating season on February 14.
Why not do a 500 piece puzzle with your lover? We think the 500 piece puzzle - Abundant is kinda romantic.
Fun Autumn Fact: The chemicals in leaves which make them go yellow and orange in Autumn are the same chemicals that give carrots and egg yolks their colours.
And that is why 1000 Piece Puzzle - Flowerbed by the amazing Kimmy Hogan is our Autumn pick. The total colours of this jigsaw puzzle just scream Autumn.
Fun Fact about Mother’s Day: It is estimated about 122 million phone calls are made on Mother’s Day. We are glad to know everyone is calling their mothers like they should!
Our 1000 Piece Puzzle – Hey Lady features some awesome woman, many of them mothers. And since all mothers are pretty special, this is our pick.
Fun Fact about Spring: According to a Facebook study, couples are most likely to break up in the Spring. Why so mean Spring? The same study found that the lowest breakup time was Christmas Day.
Since we don’t have a breakup themed jigsaw puzzle… yet. We are going to go with something a bit more traditional for Spring. Think more, flowers blooming and a beautiful Spring garden. For Spring we have selected the 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle – Secret Garden. This puzzle has been a favourite with Journey of Something customers since the beginning.
Fun fact about Father’s day: Father’s Day was invented by Sonora Smart Dodd from Washington, USA. Her father raised his 6 children single-handedly, after their mother died in childbirth and June was his birthday month.
Also, here’s an additional fun Father’s Day fact that we couldn’t not include; the oldest dad recorded is an Indian man, Ramjit Raghav, who fathered his second child at the age of 92. Go Ramjit!
We have two picks for Father’s Day jigsaw puzzles – the 1000 pieces puzzle – Hey Man and for all the dads out there who love their shed or garage, the 500 Piece puzzle – man Cave.
Fun Winter Fact: Snow takes up more room then rain. What do we mean? Well, snow is full of air that adds to its bulk. That’s why, what would have been 1 inch of rain in Summer, equals about 10 inches of snow in Winter.
Winter is obviously prime puzzle time and nothing says puzzle more than a cosy room. That’s why our pick is the 1000 Piece Puzzle – The Good Room.
There is no other choice but our Christmas Foods themed 500 piece jigsaw puzzle – Pavlova and Prawns. This puzzle features traditional Australian Christmas Foods. Let us know what you eat at Christmas time where you are from?
