"I designed a 500 piece puzzle for my daughter's 14th birthday. I had her text me a bunch of photos of her and her friends, and I made a collage. Where the single "monogram" letter was on the template I instead reduced the size and font until it said "FRIENDS 2018-19." She really liked it. Also, I bought a big, inexpensive black frame she can use to hang the puzzle in her room once she's put it together!"
"i have been using shutterfly for years now for various photo projects and can't say enough about how much i appreciate the company, products, and services. unless something goes very haywire, i plan to remain a customer for life! -matt, portland OR"
"My grandson is learning how to put together puzzles. He enjoys seeing a picture of himself."
"Family likes puzzles and this is one of my pictures"
"I enjoyed putting my puzzle together. I love it. Wasn't too happy cause I also ordered 2 8x10 Photos it said I could get 3 free gifts & was Charged for the 2 photos."
If you really want to get your brain cranking and see everyone's smiles bursting from their lips, try a 60-piece puzzle you had made of their faces. Puzzles are a fun way to spend a sweet evening at home, relaxing, chatting while you try to figure out what piece goes where, and feeling a real sense of accomplishment when you're done -- or is that a sense of challenge to anticipate for next time? Take your time figuring out where all the pieces go. The time is well-spent when you're together.
Bridge The Distance with Puzzles
When you know someone is missing you or your kids, a puzzle can be a really cool gift. Snap pictures of your kids playing and make a puzzle to send to grandparents, aunts and uncles, godparents, or family friends. If you can't be together to try to solve where all the pieces go, you can try using a video software app that lets you see each other while they work on their new photo puzzle or just talk about how much fun it was later. There are lots of other gifts that can help family members in different cities or states feel close to each other, too. Try sending photo cubes, custom placemats or other personalized gifts that your loved ones can display around the house.
Commemorating Events with 60-Piece Puzzles and Other Gifts
When chances to celebrate come up, you can always turn to traditional gifts, like ties or gift certificates, but why go that route when you can do something so much more personal? Collect photos of your spouse being a great father and make a big, fun puzzle out of a photo collage. When your final child is about to celebrate a graduation, make a puzzle of some of their milestones leading up to the big day, and share it with them before you're officially loving empty-nest freedom. Travel photos make a sweet souvenir to say thank you to a grandparent for babysitting while you got away or to remind your partner how much you loved being with them abroad.
