Wondering what to buy the wine and puzzle loving person in your life? Look no further than this range of beautifully illustrated, 500-piece themed jigsaws that are not only fun to do but educational too. Created by Master of Wine and Decanter contributor Rebecca Gibb, you can choose whether to complete the famed appellations of Bordeaux or Champagne on their own or go for the gift box option that includes a small bottle of each region’s wine – a glass of which will no doubt helpfully assist the completion process. There is also a Whiskies of Scotland puzzle broadening the range for spirit fans.

The best ideas are the ones that make you think, well, why has no one done that before? And that’s exactly what I thought when I heard about the boozy jigsaw puzzle maps launched the other day by UK-based Master of Wine Rebecca Gibb. The 500-piece puzzles – the first two in what I’m sure will become a series – feature a map of the chateaux that produce The Wines of Bordeaux, and a map of the distilleries that make The Whiskies of Scotland. As Gibb rightly points out, “jigsaws, like vinyl, are enjoying a renaissance in a digital world. There’s a simple, in-the-moment pleasure to finding the right piece, whether you’re doing a jigsaw alone or with loved ones.” They’re also, needless to say, best enjoyed with glass in hand.
