Valentine’s Day Gift Idea: Courtney Classic 3D Puzzle From The Puzzle Place

During the summer holidays, we took a drive along the coast to The Valley Of A Thousand Hills and stumbled across a quaint craft market where we made an interesting discovery: The Puzzle Place – which kept us occupied for hours – time you find you have on those getaway trips.

Not only were these puzzles they created challenging, they were beautiful to keep as décor displays.

Here’s all the information you need to know about the Courtney Classic 3D Puzzle and why it’s the perfect pick for a Valentine’s Day gift for your loved one.

Who said puzzles are only for kids? Adults who consistently solve puzzles have heightened long and short term memory, including optimized brain cell connection – it’s always recommended to keep the brain activity fresh and alert other than your usual work or study routines and a puzzle is the perfect way to ensure new connections between our brain cells are created.

That’s one of the reasons I was drawn to The Puzzle Place – a shop situated at the craft market at A Valley Of A Thousand Hills, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa as I personally love solving puzzles and I’m always on the look out new and entertaining related discoveries.

In addition to the health benefits, unlike the usual puzzles that need to be stored away in boxes, the Courtney Classic 3D Puzzle is aesthetically pleasing – carved from beautiful wood – I was particularly drawn to the pencil cedar wood, which also exudes a pleasant aroma and are available in an array of beautiful designs, from the African continent to the Big Five including other fancier elements.

Furthermore, each puzzle can be personalized by hiding a name within the puzzle or by requesting a specific design – which will take about 10 working days to complete depending on the detail of the puzzle.

With regards to challenge, a small puzzle can (and will) have you deciphered for up to three hours.
I suggest beginning with a small puzzle and then opt for the bigger, complicated puzzles that take six hours to complete for the more advanced.
