Finding the right gift for a child can sometimes be exasperating. There are so many toys out there, all of which seem bright and colorful and fun (if sometimes slightly obnoxious). But what doesn't he or she already have? Kids these days tend to wade through a pile of toys and stuffed animals even when crossing their rooms.

A Truly Unique Gift

Puzzles have been around longer than anyone reading this article, and there are few people out there who haven't enjoyed putting one together at least once. But we don't usually consider puzzles to be a good gift, perhaps because they seem boring and flimsy looking. Quality wooden jigsaw puzzles change all of that, however: they're fun, engaging, and they can make a truly unique gift.

One of the great things about giving puzzles to kids is that you can tailor the theme of the puzzle to their particular childhood obsession. If the child loves horses, it's easy to find a great looking wooden puzzle with a horse theme. Some high-end puzzles even come in the shape of a horse, and have individual pieces that are cut to look like horses.

One of the things that makes puzzles such great gifts for kids is that they are both entertaining and mentally stimulating. It's not at all uncommon to see a kid ignore the TV or video games for days on end because he or she is engaged in a puzzle. Puzzles teach cognitive skills, and are also great at helping children develop their patience and concentration.
