Most of the map jigsaws we sell are destined to be Christmas presents, so this was probably the reason that the publishers decided to produce a special Personalised Jigsaw with a specific Christmas theme - when assembled, the jigsaw spells out the message "Merry Christmas"!
In addition, the puzzle also contains several specially shaped pieces known as "whimsies" also with a festive angle - such as a Christmas tree, a star, etc. Not sure if there are any bottle of port symbols but if you want the construction of the jigsaw to turn into a party we also sell personalised map bottles of wine and beer etc!
As with all these personalised map jigsaws, you choose a location based on a postcode as the central point of the puzzle.
This jigsaw also has a choice of four map styles - you're bound to find one which is suitable for the recipient or the occasion. See the "more information" tab for details.
With the exception of the aerial style,(see below) the publishers don't provide images of the completed jigsaws, believing that as a map it is more fun putting it together without a separate guide - you also learn more about the local area!
Your jigsaw includes a gift box and red cotton drawstring bag for holding the jigsaw pieces.
Each puzzle is 400 pieces, hand-made using 1.5mm millboard and the finished jigsaw is 32 x 47cm (approx 13 x 19 inches)
