Take to the Skies 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle from Ravensburger

Father's day gifts

It's Father's Day in just over a week. Last weekend Eddie and I wandered around the shops, looking for a present. We bought one of the bigger cards, having spent a long time looking at the cards, laughing and discarding them. My cheeky son has picked a card which said "Dad, you suck!", which you have to open like a concertina, and then the full sentence reads like "Dad, without you I'm stuck", or something like that. And though I was tempted to buy that card, it is mighty rude. So we opted for a more traditional Superhero-style card.

Are you thinking of getting a gift for your partner, father of your kids or your Dad?
Is he a jigsaw puzzle fan by any chance?
If he is, there is a splendid idea from Ravensburger, which could easily please any puzzle fiend -
Take to the Skies 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle.

The artwork for the puzzle was created by Hampshire-based artist David Pen, who is a flight aficionado himself. His passion for flying things clearly shines through.

I've been working on this puzzle a little bit at a time during the day, when my boys are at school. I get a cup of coffee, put Netflix on (watching The Pinkertons), spread the puzzle and enjoy a peaceful half an hour. I just need a little bit more time to finish it, but it's almost complete. I won't have a chance to do anything during the weekend, as my elder son goes on a school trip next week, and I need to make a list, check it many times, pack all his things etc.

This is a beauty of a puzzle, and will make a lovely gift, and not just for Father's day. Look at me, a jigsaw puzzle addict. Give me a puzzle any day, and I'm happy.
