Why I love a Christmas jigsaw

I've just finished my first Christmas jigsaw of the season! This puzzle is a brand new one which I bought with my birthday money. It's a 1000 piece puzzle from Ravensburger called Magical Christmas Market (affiliate link) and it's lovely, an illustration of a Christmas market with a starry sky and pretty snow covered houses in the background, festive stalls, and a variety of different people out and about doing their Christmas shopping. It was just the right level of difficulty too - easy to get the top half of the jigsaw completed and then a little more challenging in the middle. I loved and it's definitely becoming a permanent part of my jigsaw puzzle collection!

I love doing a jigsaw (or several!) at Christmas. It brings back many happy memories of working on a puzzle when I was little, and it's a great solo or family activity. They don't all have to be Christmas themed - a couple of years ago I bought an Animal Crossing jigsaw which the children enjoyed helping with - but it is nice to work on one with a festive theme.

I have a few other Christmas jigsaws which I will be working on over the next couple of weeks. I have a set of two 500 piece vintage style jigsaws which I like as they are quite easy to do, and I also love the Ravensburger Christmas Library puzzle (affiliate link) which I received to review a few years ago.

I'm also hoping that I might be lucky enough to receive a puzzle or two in my stocking this year, and I have another birthday money puzzle waiting for me to complete in the New Year once the dining table has finished its Christmas dinner duty - watch this space!

  1. I love the idea of jigsaws but don't have the patience for them but I wish I did. They're so pretty, especially the Christmas one's. x
