            A great gift for someone who is a little hard to shop for - or anyone who enjoys puzzles. Gave to my Dad for his 82nd birthday and the whole family spent time putting it together. So fun to see what was going on when he was born. Challenging but not too hard.

              Neat gift, made him smile. Came in a nice, neat black box with room to write what I want. The front page is printed on large paper and folded in the box. Nice reference, fun to read. The pieces are thick and seem to be good quality. Hours of conversational fun with my honey while we piece this together. Just wish it wasn't so expensive. Otherwise, would recommend.

                This puzzle was the PERFECT gift for my mom! She is very hard to buy for but when I saw this, it just screamed her name. She was born in New York, she loves puzzles, and she just turned 60, so I customized it to her date of birth. She LOVES it!! She is already almost done with it. We had a great time putting together together.

                  This is such a unique gift and can be tailored for anyone! The recipient is really into current events so he loved the fact he could see the headlines from the day he was born. The puzzle itself does have a lot of text in it and because of the age (24) did not have any color so it looks like it will be quite challenging to put together. He absolutely loved it!

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Delivery was very promt especially for something that was custom printed. Packaging was great too ¡
