REVIEW

portrait puzzles

Kids love puzzles, but what about a puzzle that is a picture of them? Isn’t that such a great idea? PortraitPuzzles.com makes high quality puzzles from your own digital pictures! You can get your puzzle in one of eight different sizes and ranging from 30 – 1000 pieces to suit the youngest to the most experienced puzzler.

I love coming across unique gift ideas, and that’s what I thought when I saw this. What a great idea for a gift for so many different occasions! A personalized portrait puzzle would be perfect for a special birthday, a child’s graduation, a wedding anniversary, for a grandparent, as a family Christmas gift, Valentine’s Day, to remember a special vacation or family event, Mother’s or Father’s Day, or as a wedding gift.

We usually give my grandparents a family picture for Christmas each year – if your grandparents like to do puzzles, and lots of older people do, a family portrait puzzle would be perfect! We also like to celebrate our family’s birthday on our anniversary since that was the day our family was born – a portrait puzzle would be a great family birthday gift as well.

There are so many different occasions that would be perfect for giving one of these.

portrait puzzles

My husband loves puzzles. He actually just finished a 5000 piece puzzle in December – crazy, I know! Last weekend we sat down on our date night to do this portrait puzzle of our son together while watching the A&E version of Pride and Prejudice. It was such a fun date! This puzzle was so much fun to do, to watch this picture of our sweet son coming together, piece by piece. It was so exciting, much more so than a normal puzzle. I like puzzles, but I had more fun putting this one together than any other I’ve ever done!

The quality is superb, just like a store bought puzzle. The picture was clear and focused, just like the original. And the 16″x20″ size was just right – big enough to be challenging and to take some time but not big enough to be discouraging.

Ordering is easy – simply upload the picture and Portrait Puzzles makes your puzzle for you. You can also get a little tin container for your puzzle with the picture on the front. Check out PortraitPuzzles and see what great fun this is!

THE PRIZE

One extremely lucky winner will get a $40 gift certificate to spend at PortraitPuzzles.com!

This is so awesome. I love this idea. This would be fabulous gift for kids. I would order the 20 x 26 for 1,008 pieces. I would also get smaller sizes for some presents, cuz they would want to frame it for sure. Thanks so much for a chance.

4 Jennifer March 11, 2009 at 7:19 am

If I am going to get one of these great puzzles I want it as big as I can get. Looks like 20″x 26″ will have to do! I think 1008 pieces will keep me busy for awhile :)

9 Kristen March 11, 2009 at 7:44 am

The 15 piece 11X17 or the 30 piece 16×20 would be great for my 3 year old!

12 Kristie March 11, 2009 at 7:49 am

I want to get one of these for my husband for Father’s Day. We love to do puzzles together. I would buy the 16 x 20, 513 pieces. It would be great to have a picture of all our kids on it.

13 Georgia March 11, 2009 at 8:23 am

27 Brittney Barney March 11, 2009 at 9:28 am

This is great! I love it. I was just going to go to Walgreens to do one of these puzzle pictures, but I’m sure Portrait Puzzles has much better quality.
Every year over Thanksgiving and Christmas, my family gets together and we do puzzles. Most of the time it ends up being my sister-in-law, my mom, and me, and we end up staying up until so early in the morning that we can hard differentiate the shapes anymore. We love doing puzzles. It has been a great family bonding time.
I would love to get the 20×26, the 1008 piece puzzle because it would pose a challenge for us (the thousand range usually does!). It would be so great to do a family picture puzzle with the whole family!
Thanks for the chance to win!
