Gibsons Offer Free Jigsaws to Celebrate National Puzzle Day

8th January 2018

On Monday 29th January 2018, the nation will be improving their intellect and cultivating their craniums in honour of National Puzzle Day, the event that celebrates all things mind boggling! From crosswords to Rubik’s Cubes, sudokus to jigsaws, all are encouraged to ditch the Xbox and embrace the traditional pastime that will keep you puzzled with the hashtag, #NationalPuzzleDay.

To celebrate National Puzzle Day, we are giving away a free copy of 'Behind Closed Doors' when £20 is spent on Gibsons jigsaw puzzles at Jigsaw Puzzles Direct, the online jigsaw puzzle retailer.

Jigsaw puzzles are seeing a huge resurgence, so much so that they were added to the UK’s official Consumer Price Index shopping basket for the first time in March 2017 – proving that puzzles are now a contemporary mainstream pastime. This is due to a resistance against digital hobbies, as we find ourselves choosing to turn off our screens and spend time playing a game or completing a jigsaw with our family.

Echoing the trend, we had a mammoth year in 2017, with our annual turnover increasing by 8.4%. Moreover, our 1000 piece jigsaw puzzles are now the thickest puzzle pieces available in the UK market, which means that our high quality materials are unrivalled by all other jigsaw brands.

Thickest Puzzle Pieces

Our jigsaws are also made from 100% recycled board and their images are carefully selected and digitally enhanced to ensure every jigsaw provides a unique and enjoyable puzzling experience.

Kate Gibson, MD of Gibsons states, “We welcome National Jigsaw Puzzle Day, reminding everyone that jigsaw puzzles should be celebrated! It’s fantastic that a whole day is dedicated to the relaxing pastime that keeps our minds young and expands our creativity. We’d love to see more people realise the benefits of puzzling, which is why we are giving away a free puzzle with every £20 order placed with Jigsaw Puzzles Direct. They are a great company with excellent customer service, so we urge all to take a punt on a jigsaw and get puzzling!”
