One of the more recently available personalised map jigsaw puzzles, this one places great emphasis on your home - so it's ideal for a housewarming present, anniversary, birthday or indeed Christmas.
You choose the central address on which the map is based, which needs a postcode and the completed jigsaw also spells out 'Home Sweet Home' around your chosen location, which is marked by a jigsaw piece in the shape of a house.
Produced to last, the jigsaw is made out of wood rather than millboard and there is even a choice of 'standard' 2mm or 'premium' gloss 3mm wooden pieces.
This jigsaw also has a choice of five 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 printed 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!
The 2mm wooden puzzle is supplied in a red drawstring cotton bag presented in a clamshell box.
The 3mm puzzle comes in the same red bag but this time in a smart black storage "book box".
The assembled size is 47 x 32 cm (approx 18 x 12 inches) and it's made up with 300 pieces.
