Puzzles firm Gibsons is encouraging families to switch off their Playstations and enjoy some family time, offering free jigsaw puzzles in honour of National Puzzle Day.
Any order of £20 or more on puzzle retailer Jigsaw Puzzles Direct will be eligible for a free puzzle from the family-owned firm, on and around the official National Puzzle Day, Monday January 29th. The offer runs from Friday 26th – Monday 29th.
Jigsaw puzzles have seen a huge resurgence in popularity over recent months, with puzzles being 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.
As a result of this trend, Gibsons has enjoyed a banner year, with annual turnover increasing by 8.4 per cent. Gibsons puzzles boast the thickest puzzle pieces on the market, made from 100 per cent recycled board, displaying digitally enhanced imagery.
“We welcome National Jigsaw Puzzle Day, reminding everyone that jigsaw puzzles should be celebrated," commented Kate Gibsons, MD.
"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!”
To celebrate National Puzzle Day, Gibsons are requesting that jigsaw puzzle fans send in a photograph of the jigsaw they are current piecing together. The company will then combine all the entries to create a huge #NationalPuzzleDay montage that will be shared online.
