Personalized puzzles that make perfect birthday gifts. Maybe not just for kids.

I just finished spring cleaning my kids’ bedrooms and, while I was able to part with many things, I held onto almost anything that had been personalized with their names. If you too find that personalized gifts hold a special place in your heart, then you won’t be puzzled by my enthusiasm for something beautifully made–yet affordable–that could become a treasured plaything to hang onto for a long time.

We’ve loved TinyMe’s colorful personalized labels, and we’re also smitten by their adorable wooden jigsaw puzzles that come in a huge array of styles and colors.

The lovely muted color schemes and retro designs are one thing that make me think “keepsake” whenever I see the wide range of styles, most of which are also personalized with a first name of your choosing. What a great, unique birthday gift for a special child.

With almost two dozen styles, from cool race cars, to sweet woodland owls, to crazy cartoon skateboarding donuts (yes!), it’s easy to find a style that would fit the child you have in mind. And I love that so many of the designs have a choice of color palettes too so you can decide if you want your robot in blue, gold, or red.

These puzzles come in two sizes and are made of lasercut plywood covered in non-toxic paint, making them suitable for kids one year old and above. I’d recommend that once your kids have moved on to more complex puzzles, I’d have the puzzle framed and hung in their room for some personalized wall art that will remind you of those days when chunky little fingers worked to fit the pieces together triumphantly. -Christina

    I love puzzles so much and they are so educational in many many ways and teach important life skills, such as working as a team, patience, persistence, and many more. As a teacher, a Mom to a child with Autism, and the owner of a personalized photo jigsaw puzzle company, I believe that every household should have a puzzle sitting on a table in their home. What a wonderful way to come together as a family! Children will engage when they feel a personal connection, so I would shamelessly suggest that personalized puzzles be a part of the process. Who wouldn’t want to do a puzzle that features their face on a puzzle?
