Our Easter Gift Guide
Posted on

The last 12 months have been a bit different, and we thought we’d continue the trend – instead of chocolate Easter eggs, why not try one of these fabulous gift ideas for your loved ones this Easter?

For the Little Ones

Springtime is coming and we are loving it! We’re sure your children will be loving it too, and now with our brand-new Wonderful Wildlife children’s puzzle, they can enjoy Spring even from inside. This 100-piece puzzle is just the trick for teaching your little ones about the natural world. Tucked up beneath the vast green land are some furry friends catching up on some well-earned sleep. Whilst outside the day is young, and the wonders of nature graze the flower-lined meadow on a beautiful summer’s day.

It’s easy to convince children to eat chocolate, but convincing them to eat their vegetables is a bit more tricky. This is where our Crunch Bunch uzzles come in! A nourishing set of eight 2-piece puzzles that aim to make fruits and vegetables fun. Slide open the box and discover amazing avocado, brilliant broccoli and all their vitamin-packed friends. Perfect for toddlers aged 18 months and up, they will love the extra-large pieces, bright colours and delightful illustrations. 

Alternatively, drift off into a dream world with our simple match-the-pairs game, Sweet Dreams Memory Game. Inside are 36 tiles and players must match the pairs which include characters from the corresponding puzzle in the Little Gibsons range. This game is ideal for children aged 3 and up, especially if they love magical Unicorns and friendly Llamas! Whether you are out and about or looking for some fun at home, this pocket-sized game will provide entertainment whilst developing important memory and observation skills. 

For the Traditional Puzzlers 

Our 1000-piece Tempting Treats puzzle may not be chocolate, but it sure is sweet! It looks like Anne cannot turn her back for a minute with her furry companions lurking around her kitchen! Milly the Golden Retriever has managed to find her freshly iced cupcakes, but it looks like Dougie the Tabby might just get to them first! This jigsaw is painted by the talented Claire Comerford. 

Or maybe you do want a delicious treat, without the caloriesWe have the perfect solution, with our 1980s Sweet Memoriesa 500-piece jigsaw in a fabulous collectable tin. New confectionery brands in the 80s included Terry’s Bitz and Pyramint, Rowntree’s Black Magic bar, Cadbury’s Wispa and the novelty interlocking plastic container of ipso sweets to be found in Woolworths stores. On the way out were familiar friends like Fry’s Five Centre, Waifa, Bar Six and the boxed assortment Weekend. Whatever your favourite, you’ll be sure to enjoy piecing this lovely puzzle together.

  

Another Springtime favourite, the overgrown garden in our 500-piece puzzle In The Garden is the perfect playground for the wonderful wildlife that can be found in our fields.
