I have to admit that finding the perfect present for my parents has been a challenge over the past few years, since they’re at the stage in their lives where they have everything they need and want. The one thing they love the most is time with their grandchildren. While they cannot have their grandchildren with them all the time due to distance, the next best thing is photos of their grandchildren.
Little One perused the collage.com website to create a personal gift for her grandparents. Knowing that Lola and Grampy treasure their grandchildren, she thought it would be a great touch to have something made with photos of her older cousin, twin cousins, baby cousin and herself.
Among all the photo gifts, like canvas prints, calendars, photo cards, photo blankets, mugs, and phone cases, Little One decided on making a custom photo puzzle for her grandparents.
“I read somewhere that puzzles are good for older people. It helps keep their minds sharp.”
Perhaps I need to tell her not to mention that when in her grandparents’ company! She’s too funny!
Creating Your Custom Photo Puzzle
Creating your own custom photo puzzle is simple. Visit the collage.com website and select your product of choice. Select puzzle for kids or puzzle for adults and then select the size (number of pieces). The kids’ puzzles have bigger and fewer pieces. We ordered the adult puzzle with 110 pieces (8 x 10), and it took us a while to put the puzzle together. It made for a great family activity on a snow day!
Next, decide on the look you want by clicking “Start Your Puzzle”. Select a template and simply upload your favourite photos or photos of choice. You can add text if you want or select a background. You can preview your creation to view the finished product and once you’re satisfied, just add to cart! Easy peasy!
We’ve made photo gifts on collage.com before and have been very pleased with how the items turned out. In fact, the photo blanket we made last year remains my absolute favourite and most cherished item! We were also very pleased with the delivery time!
If you’re looking for a special all-occasion gift, a custom photo puzzle would be a fun and personal gift idea! They’re perfect for commemorating milestone birthdays and anniversaries, and welcoming a new baby to the family.
A custom photo puzzle is also a great idea for holidays. With Valentine’s Day coming up, wouldn’t it be sweet to surprise your sweetheart with a custom photo puzzle with your favourite photos together?
