    Comments about UncommonGoods New York Times Custom Front Page Puzzle:

    The puzzle comes in a beautiful presentation box. I purchased this puzzle for my grandson. I chose the date of January 21, 2009, the day after President Obama's Inauguration. I wanted my grandson to have a "piece of history." I would definitely order another puzzle, the puzzles are fantastic! Excellent craftsmanship!

                  I got this for my aunt for Christmas. She is a puzzle-lover, and when I saw this puzzle, I knew this would be a unique and perfect gift for her. She is currently having fun putting it together (she said it is challenging!), and she is having fun discovering the news stories as she works on the puzzle. While most of the family exchanged gift cards, it was exciting to find a gift so unique and fun!

                    It is perfect for commemorating a date such as a birthday, anniversary...etc. I would describe the puzzle difficulty as moderate, challenging enough for adults, but without requiring a huge amount of time or effort.

                      This is a great gift for anyone, but especially so for those who are hard to buy for (i.e. My dad). It was fun to see him open it on Christmas morning and see what was happening on the day of his birth. My husband is a keen puzzle doer, and he enjoyed the challenge in his black and white puzzle (in other words, he was born before the introduction of color to the NYT.
