Join us for the Christmas in July Puzzles Event! Starts July 1st and runs until July 31st. Celebrate Summer assembling Christmas scenes and share them on the Jigsaw Puzzle Connections Facebook Group Page.
Here's another way to make a connection with other jigsaw puzzle members;
Also you may opt in to join the Jigsaw Puzzle Online Community for Christmas in July EXTRAS. Members who join may receive a Christmas in July Card and 30 Removable Stickers to add to your assembled jigsaw puzzle BEFORE uploading your Photo to the Group.
OR, you may choose to freely download and print the Christmas in July Card (link coming soon) and or the 30 Stickers. You can print the Cards on cardstock and the Red Stickers on Label sheets or simply cut them out to lay on top of your assembled puzzle before you take your photo.
IF you need some Christmas jigsaw puzzles or would like to buy yourself a Christmas In July present, we have gathered several together at our online Jigsaw Puzzle Amazon Store for your convenience. By purchasing from our links we may get a small commission which means you are helping to support this website too :) You will see me sitting in front of the 32,000 piece New York City Window jigsaw puzzle I assembled last year! YAY!!
We sincerely hope you will join us for the Christmas In July Puzzles Event. It has been quite the trying time over the past year and a half. Many have lost loved ones, financial stability and or are recovering from health scares. Let's take this opportunity to regroup, recover and reconnect the Jigsaw Puzzle Community. Become a Member today so we may make new connections and become eligible for GIVEAWAYS! That said, we hope to continue to bring in more Jigsaw Puzzle Events like this one in the future.
Christmas In July Puzzles Event (outside)
Christmas In July Puzzles Event (inside)
We love Christmas images and we miss them so we decided to try doing a popular theme that many companies do. It will be interesting to see how many puzzlers will participate in the Christmas in July Puzzles Event and maybe this will be an annual event. Lots of puzzlers tend to get outside for the summer and do not return until the Fall after the holidays and school restarts. We hope this might boost the Summer jigsaw puzzle activity during the hottest time of the year. Often we hear that many Seniors are indoors away from the heat due to health reasons. That makes sense to us.
In fact, we love Christmas In July so much that we hope you will share with us your wrapped Christmas presents, your decorated Christmas tree and maybe even your Christmas decor. That will be really fun to see if you upload them to the Facebook Group and / or you can upload 4 photos into the Section below. Once we approve them they will be listed below the entry form.
Brand: Galison, Title: Peanuts Christmas, Artist: Charles Schultz, Pieces: 1000, Size: 20 x 27". I knew the sky would be testy due to the grid-cut. Once again I laid out all the pieces according to shape and the size of the tips on the pieces and test them all one at time. It took me longer to do the sky and snow than the rest of the puzzle. You can see some close up photos in the article plus there is a list of 140 more Christmas puzzles.
Brand: Hallmark, Title: Woolly Mittens, By: John Donnell, Pieces: 400 Size: 20.5 x 26.75". You will not find this online or in the stores - it's kinda on the vintage side. After I finished it, I swapped it out to another Puzzler. There are more details and photos in the article plus 140 other Christmas jigsaw puzzles.
Brand: Dowdle, Title: Gingerbread House, Artist: Eric Dowdle, Pieces: 500, Size: 16" x 20". This was another lucky find for $1.00 at the Thrift Store and perfect for this time of year! There are more details and closeup photos in the article plus 140 Christmas jigsaw puzzles to view.
Brand: Bits & Pieces, Title: Winter Patchwork, By: Helz Cuppleditch, Pieces: 1000, Size: 20" x 27". There is a lot of darkness in this image but I really enjoyed assembling it. It did take longer than my usual time to do a 1000 piece puzzle but well worth it in the end! I took several close up photos to share the details in the review which are not very visible on the large image plus there is a list of 140 Christmas jigsaw puzzles there.
Springbok jigsaw puzzle, Title: Snowman Delight, Pieces: 500, Artist: The Coca-Cola Co. Finished Size: 20" x 20" Square. Super fun quick-Christmas-fix and used on the wall every Christmas for decor. Also there are 140 more Christmas jigsaw puzzles with links listed on the page.
Brand: Bits & Pieces, Title: The Village Wreath, By: Rosiland Solomon, Pieces: 750, Size: 24.6" x 25" or 62 x 63.5cm. The Village Wreath shaped jigsaw puzzle was put on my wish list the second I saw it so once I received a gift card for Christmas last year I purchased it instantly. When this puzzle is assembled it is quite colourful and very impressive. Highly recommended! It is available to buy at Bits and Pieces but you should shop around for the best shipping prices.
Brand: Cobble Hill Puzzle Company, Title: Christmas Train, Artist: Ingrid Slyder ,Size: 26.6x19.25 Pieces: 350 pieces. I love an image that shares the twinkle of Christmas and clearly this one has captured that essence as you will see in the close up photos included in the article.
Brand: Springbok Authentic XZL9600, Title: Cool Friends, Size: 34" x 42.5" or 83.3cm x 1.07m, Pieces: 2000 pieces. Board ALERT! Watch your board size on this one. It is 34x42.5" (83.3cm x 1.07m). I needed to add a foam board section to the top and left side of my 'already' double-sized foam boards. It also makes it difficult to get overhead photos as the board cannot be moved to a lower level so I tried to keep the glare a low as possible.
Brand: Pastime, Title: Christmas Cat, Pieces: 1000, Size: 20x26". I created the puzzle image and uploaded to the Pastime Puzzle online Company that produced my image into a puzzle format. I must say, I am impressed with their process but for a price. The Christmas Cat story is written by my Sister for her daughter.
Brand: Eurographics, Title: Ready for Christmas, Artist: Steve Crisp, Size: 19.25" x 27", Pieces: 1000. I had singled out the Merry Christmas text which was then done first on the board followed by the Christmas tree, red fence, reindeer, dog and other greenery. From there I worked all the lighter colour areas in the rooms, placing them into position on the board. Eventually the lower roof and front doorway were completed. After that, all the rooms were completed until I was down to the starry sky and white snow.
Brand: Cobble Hill Puzzle Company, Title: Peace On Earth - Poster inside, By: Richard Cowdrey, Pieces: 1000, Size: 27" x 30". This is such a pretty puzzle which shares a true essence of Christmas. There are more details and lovely closeup photos in the article that will surely trigger your Christmas spirit. Peace on Earth jigsaw puzzle.
Brand: Wentworth, Title: He Looked Like A Pedlar, 500 pieces. I received this as a gift from my puzzle friend in Scotland and it is my first Wentworth wooden puzzle. Once I completed it, put it in a frame, it's been on my wall ever since. He Looked Like A Pedlar
Brand: Eurographics, Title: Sweet Christmas, Size: 19.25" x 27", Pieces: 1000. I started with a few of the main colourful items as in the Gingerbread House, Candy Canes, Donuts and pink cookies. Then I completed all the large red text and red border decor at the top and bottom. After that it was a matter of picking a delicious treat and locating the colours that matched up. There was not a lot of white space between the treats so that was not even an issue
Brand: Eurographics, Title: Holiday Cats (Christmas Kittens), Size: 19.25" x 27", Pieces: 1000. I started with patches of pinks, browns, orange-ish and red. That was enough to start building areas up. Then I did as much leaves on the top and bottom border that I could locate. From there I just continued to build as many Christmas Kittens into their general area on the puzzle....eventually they all found their places. The Holiday Cats jigsaw puzzle is a perfect puzzle experience....it's super fun to see these delightful little Kittens created into a seasonal image. I can highly recommend it.
Brand: Cobble Hill Puzzle Company, Title: Christmas on the Farm, Artist: Greg Giordano, Size: 26.6x19.25, Pieces: 1000 pieces. I love an image that shares these scenic activities of Christmas as you can see in these close up photos above. The artwork by Greg Giordano is clear, colourful and crisp making it totally attractive. Christmas on the Farm
Brand: Springbok, Title: Sparkling Tree, Size: 24" x 30" or 60.9 x 76.2cm, Pieces: 500 pieces. This one has a foil type glitter upon the surface to make it look extra fun. There are more details and closeup photos in the article plus 140 Christmas jigsaw puzzles to view. Sparkling Tree Puzzle
Brand: FX Schmid, Title: Santa's Toy Shop, Artist: Simon Treadwell, Size: 27.5 x 20" (70x50cm) Pieces: 1000 pieces. I love an image that shares the twinkle of Christmas and clearly this one has captured that essence as you can see in these close up photos above. The artwork by Simon Treadwell is very colorful and traditional making it totally attractive. Santa's Toy Shop jigsaw puzzle
Brand: Disney, Title: no title, Size: 12.2 x 8.2", Pieces: 500 pieces, 2 missing. I was pleased to do this delightful little quick fix Mickey and Minnie jigsaw puzzle. It shows on the box that it comes from the Disney Store. The overall quality of product is on the better level of medium but not top of the line which is acceptable. Even though it was missing 2 pieces it certainly was entertaining enough for a Christmas puzzle. Christmas Mickey and Minnie jigsaw puzzle
Brand: Eurographics, Title: Christmas Stories, Artist: Paul Normand, Size: 19.25" x 27" Extra Large pieces, Pieces: 300. The second I saw this image I knew I HAD to have it in my Christmas collection. The Artist has combined many Christmas stories into one magical image. The only story that I am unfamiliar with is the fishing story....I do not have a clue about it. Maybe someone can tell me. I can highly recommended the Christmas Stories jigsaw puzzle for families to assemble together as they discover the different magical Christmas stories while assembling this beauty!
Brand: White Mountain, Title: Christmas House, Artist: Steve Crisp, Pieces: 1000, Size: 24" x 30". I have shared closeup photos of each room that shows what a very traditional family Christmas could look like and many of the details are familiar to us. I love an image that tells us that kinda story. The Christmas House jigsaw puzzle has many versions however I like this one the most as Santa is (traditionally) on the roof AND it was sent to me by a very special Puzzle Fairy!

Brand: Unknown, Title: Christmas Scene Jigsaw Puzzle, Pieces: 1000, Size: 20" x 30". The 8 images in the article share some closeup scenes of some lovely Christmas activity which was delightful to see and the highlight of the puzzle experience. Christmas Scene Jigsaw Puzzle
Brand: WHSmith Limited Edition Panoramic, Title: Christmas Town, Size: 38.5x13.5" or 98x34cm Pieces: 1000 pieces. I was very pleased with this gift that was sent from my Puzzle Friend in Scotland at the end of last year. It was a pleasure to assemble and the experience was enjoyable. The completed image with the gold foil is seen much better than captured on the photos.

Brand: Cobble Hill Puzzle Company, Title: Holiday Candy, By: Cobble Hill Puzzle Company, Artist: Andrea Mistretta, Pieces: 500, Size: 24" x 18". The matte finish is always nice on these puzzles. As is the cut and quality of Cobble Hill jigsaw puzzles. In the end, as you can see in the close up photos of how the pieces do fit perfectly smooth together which compliments the extremely colorful and delightful production of the Holiday Candy jigsaw puzzle.
