Times are undoubtably tough for many right now. So, to spread some joy, we have coined June as ‘Kindness Month’ and have launched our #PuzzleItForward campaign. Running from the 1st-30th June, the campaign challenges our trade customers to gift a completely free puzzle to their shoppers and brighten their day.
Alternatively, puzzlers can make a purchase directly from the Gibsons website between 1st-30th June and they will receive one free puzzle with their order. Minimum order spend is £10 and the free puzzle will be automatically added to their delivery.
Jigsaw puzzles have been scientifically proven to boost one’s mental health through the meditative benefits and separation from digital devices. Piecing together a jigsaw is a great way to combat stress, but it is also beneficial for your physical health too. By refocusing the mind away from negative and stressful thoughts decreases your cortisol and blood pressure levels, making both your body and mind healthy (Dr Newton, 2017).
Commercial Director, Amanda Chaplin states: “We’re really excited to launch our #PuzzleItForward campaign. At its core, it encourages acts of kindness: whether that’s a shop owner gifting a free puzzle to a loyal customer, or an avid puzzler passing their free puzzle on to a friend or acquaintance who has never tried puzzling before. Puzzles bring people together when times are tough so we really hope the campaign will spread some much-needed joy.”
Gibsons are encouraging everyone to share their puzzling experiences on social media, using the hashtags #GibsonsKindnessMonth and #PuzzleItForward.
