Mother’s Day is fast approaching! Get ahead of the rush and pick out a puzzling gift from Kubiya - guaranteed to give hours of much needed fun and stress relief for a Mom who needs a break. We decided to break down some of our favorite best-selling puzzles and games that we think would make delightful gifts for the Mothers, Grandmothers, Aunts, friends, and women who keep the world spinning. Check out some ideas below, and see if you feel inspired or reminded of any special women in your life!
Mom deserves the best. Period. Why not surprise, dazzle and delight the woman who does it all with a beautiful, uniquely crafted puzzle she’ll be proud to solve and display! Puzzles are a unique idea for a gift because they take a decent length of time to solve, but most can also be used and admired forever as a decoration. A gorgeous puzzle that Mom (or Grandma!) has solved herself provides a sense of achievement every time it is gazed upon!
The 7 Step, 14 Step Japanese Puzzle Boxes:
These boxes are gorgeous with multiple wood grain colors inlaid into the surface. There is no paint, just fine craftsmanship to make the wood colors stand out. They are a combination of a fun puzzle, a gorgeous cultural aesthetic, and a practical box that can be put to use. Maybe you could place candy inside, or a piece of jewelry? Maybe a special note that she can look at when she misses you! Better yet, place an original, special secret of your own inside.
The 6 Puzzle Set Gift Box:
This great 6-puzzle variety set comes in an attractive hand-crafted box. This is a perfect gift for all ages and skill levels, from the budding young puzzler to an experienced strategist! We’ve selected six of our most popular puzzles of varying difficulty levels and puzzle types for this unique gift set. If you get too frustrated with one puzzle just pick up another! We recommended this for a Mother because the gift set is diverse and able to be mixed and matched. Puzzles could even be passed around the family or left on the kitchen table for whoever is close by to try their luck solving. There are endless possibilities, and the set is guaranteed to go well with wooden furniture.
Don't Break It Puzzle - Wine Puzzle:
A high-quality, hand-crafted wooden wine rack puzzle with a unique, ancient brain-teaser mechanism that is quite different from all other disentanglement puzzles in our collection. You can combine this puzzle with Mom or any woman’s favorite bottle of wine/liquor and make it a tantalizing puzzling experience while they gaze at the bottle that cannot be opened until the puzzle is solved. Only 4 moves to free the bottle! How difficult can it be? Don’t Break It is a creative, original, and re-usable gift that can be passed forward to another friend or brought out at dinner parties/family gatherings to challenge your guests!
Grandmothers, Mothers, Aunts, Wives; we love them all! Exercise their brains with a gift that’s equally as smart and beautiful. These gifts made us think of Grandma, but there’s no rulebook for gift-giving – anyone might love them!
Heart Tangram - two sets with 57 challenge cards:
This Tangram puzzle two-set comes with 57 challenge cards and two sets of tangram pieces so you can play by yourself or with another person. AND - it’s in the shape of a heart! Grandma or Mom will love a puzzle like this, especially a Grandma who loves jigsaw puzzles. She has many options of pictures to make, varying in difficulty, and it can even be played as a game with her favorite grandchild (which could be YOU after giving this gift!)
3D Tic Tac Toe - Wooden XOXO Game:
A fantastic table game to have out for guests or play with a partner/significant other, you have 14 moves to complete rows vertically, horizontally, and diagonally through the 3x3x3 cube board. Once the grid is full, the player with the most completed rows of three wins. A wonderful, classic game with that extra bit of a twist that is perfect for family gatherings or just for a rainy afternoon inside. Grandma or any person who loves games will love how easy it is to replay, hold tournaments, and work on honing your strategies for next time.
The Red Stone assembly puzzle comes with 8 wooden pieces arranged inside an elegant wooden box, as well as a red wooden rectangle on the top cover. It looks as if there is no way to add this additional red rectangle piece into the box with the other pieces inside, but that is exactly what you are required to do. Not only is it beautiful to display, but the supposedly “impossible” look at the beginning is fun to amaze people with (and very exciting once you have solved it!). Friends will say that it can’t be done, and you can prove them wrong! We chose this as one option for Grandma because the concept is simple, and it can be played around with very easily as she gradually works towards a solution and tries different combinations of blocks.
As we’ve highlighted here, puzzles are a fun-for-all-ages activity that bring the family together! Every person and woman is unique; we may have broken our suggestions into categories, but be sure to choose with your heart and feel free to take any/all suggestions that you like for any person. There’s no greater gift than a mother’s love - so, return the love this year with a unique gift for a woman looking to think outside the box. Win the “Favorite Kid Award” with a puzzle from Kubiya - remember, brain teasers last longer than flowers! Thanks for reading, and happy Mother’s Day.
