Celebrate Mum – She Deserves It
18th March 2019
Looking for Mother’s Day present ideas? Look no further as we have an exciting range of gifts that make a delightful alternative to your traditional box of chocolates or bunch of flowers. Make Mum smile this year with one of our quirky jigsaw puzzles or unique packs of playing cards.
Georgeous Gifts - The White Logo Collection
If your mum has an eye for more contemporary designs, then we have just released a brand-new collection of design-led jigsaw puzzles. There are five puzzles available in the White Logo range, all of which have been specifically selected for their striking designs and unconventional scenes. Following the trend of mindfulness and the nation’s desire to spend less time looking at a screen, our White Logo jigsaws are perfect for the new wave of puzzlers who are looking for something different to traditional puzzle scenes. Designed and manufactured in the UK from the thickest board available on the jigsaw puzzle market, the new puzzles are made from 100% recycled board and are presented in compact boxes to reduce unnecessary cardboard waste.
Retro Rocks! – The Iconic Brands Collection
Inspired by adored brands such as Marmite, Pringles and VW, the Iconic Brands Collection consists of tricky little jigsaw puzzles that are presented in unconventional, larger-than-life gift tins. If your mother likes a challenge, then a gift puzzle from our Iconic Brands Collection could make an ideal gift. Licenced by Smiley, the Rubik’s Cube jigsaw is the devilishly difficult mathematical wonder packaged in a giant Rubik’s Cube tin, making it a true emblem of the 1980’s. Perhaps your mum has an appetite for something tastier? In which case we have transformed the Kellogg’s Corn Flakes cereal box into a 500 piece, double sided jigsaw. We can’t promise the pieces inside this box have the same crunch as the classic flakes, but this tasty treat will satisfy even the hungriest of puzzlers!
Open the tin and dive in! - Sweet Memories Tins
Take your mum on a trip down memory lane as the pieces from the past fit together once more with our Sweet Memories Tins. Winner of the Commemorative and Collectable Gift of the Year Award 2019, these images have been designed by Robert Opie and each tin holds a 500 piece puzzle featuring a mouth-watering collage of delicious treats from either the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s or 1980s. As with all Gibsons jigsaws, the beautifully illustrated pieces are made from the highest quality 100% recycled board.
Strong, Independent Women – Sassy Women Playing Cards
Finally, if you fancy beating your mum at a game of cards then why not do it in style? Our collector’s playing cards celebrate strong, independent women who are sassy and proud! This pack of individually illustrated playing cards contains a rich collection of cracking female one liners that will leave you giggling, guffawing or simply speechless. Like all Piatnik playing cards, Sassy Women is a pack of high-quality cards that are presented in a durable tuck box and feature photos of terrific movie posters and tacky pulp covers. With 52 unique designs, these cards are a joy to handle again and again and will keep you mum entertained for hours.
Gibsons are proud to distribute Piatnik Unique Singles playing cards. These niche themed playing cards are produced by Bird Playing Cards, founded 25 years ago by Nicky Bird, for many years the publisher at the V&A. The range covers art, history, popular culture - and nostalgia. 'We try and think up titles that will appeal to collectors of ephemera as well as those that enjoy a game of cards’ says Nicki Bird. 'Our Banksy pack is incredibly popular; our art packs too, and Gin and Prosecco are best sellers.’
