    Jigsaws based on where you live

    Available from Firebox at £19.95
    (prices may vary, check supplier site before ordering)

    Jigsaw enthusiasts are usually thought of in the same context as trainspotters, macramé buffs and avid viewers of Time Team. But perhaps that’s because most of us associate jigsaw puzzles with naff images of cutesy kittens, fantasy vistas, dull tourist attractions and twee thatched cottages from an era that never was.

    The point being, it’s invariably the subject of the jigsaw that lets it down, not the puzzle itself. For this very reason, your genre-reinventing friends here at Firebox are proud to unveil what we believe to be the next generation of jigsaws.

    Postcode Puzzles are unique, 255-piece map jigsaws centred on a place of YOUR choice. Simply give us the full postcode of the property you’d like at the centre of your puzzle – be it your own humble abode or a friend or relative's pad - and leave the rest to us.

    Before you can say "SW2 4RT" we’ll send you an utterly absorbing, totally personalised map-based puzzle that will not only test, but also increase your local geographical knowledge. Which can only be a good thing if you’re one of those people who have difficulty finding their way home when in an advanced state of refreshment.

    All 255 pieces are crafted in high-quality 1.5mm millboard – meaning they’ll fit together beautifully like, well, like a jigsaw. The centre piece is even in the shape of a house. What’s more, each complete puzzle measures a coffee table friendly 14” x 11” so you won’t have to clear away the furniture for floor–based assembly.

    Postcode Puzzles are guaranteed to give you a whole new grasp of your local surroundings and provide you with hours of maptastic entertainment. Just remember, we know where you live. Sort of.

    Good idea for a chrissy present this one. Just ordered one for my folks and got a pressie on the same site for my sister.

    Aaaah, the beauties of online shopping, no fighting the crowds for me this year!

    Indeed. 3 in my family so far, they're quite interesting even if you're not really into jigsaws

    And, yes, I'm going for the online-only pressie buying approach too
