For many of us, our dad is our hero. He is the walking embodiment of the age old adage, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going." And boy is he tough.
But is he tough enough to tackle one of our 1000-piece jigsaw puzzles? Don't worry, they're more relaxing than they are tough! An oxymoron, I suppose. But true nonetheless.
We have compiled a list of the ultimate Father's Day jigsaw puzzle gift guide for all the types of dads there are out there. You may find your dad fits into more than one of these categories. Fathers are complicated creatures, after all.
1. For the tourist dad
Buy now £19.99, 1000-piece Michael Storrings London Jigsaw Puzzle
Does your dad wear a beige safari hat, cargo shorts, white socks with a DSLR camera hanging from his neck? You have yourself a tourist dad. If your dad carries himself as an urban David Attenborough touring cities like a wild life photographer, he will loves this Michael Storrings illustration of London turned jigsaw puzzle.
2. For the artistic dad
Why wouldn't the world's most expensive artwork be the perfect gift for the artistic dad?
3. For the businessman dad
What screams businessman more than a man in a grey suit?
4. For the eccentric dad
Whilst we can confidently say all our puzzles are perfect for eccentrics, this one represents something more. The Starry Night is both an exercise in observation and a clear departure from it. It represents the mind's ability to distort and intensify aspects of reality.
5. For the war hero dad
What do Lowry and your dad have in common? They're both British heroes!
After the outbreak of World War II Lowry served as a volunteer fire watcher and became an official war artist in 1943.
6. For the geeky dad
Dad might be tough but he'll definitely need the Force to complete this Star Wars Death Star Jigsaw Puzzle!
7. For the organised (and maybe a little OCD) dad
Nothing screams well-organised more than gorgeous geometric patterns and two overlapping circles filled with both concentric and diagonal stripes.
Oh, and did we forget to mention that Sir Patrick Stewart is a fan of the Frank Stella jigsaw puzzle?
8. For the outdoors dad
Let the father of impressionism Claude Monet leave an impression on dad this Father's Day! Just look at that gorgeous seascape!
9. For the globetrotter dad
Around the world in 80 days, anyone? Let's see if dad can finish this one in less than that time!
10. For the humorous dad
What could be more funny than less than subtle phallic connotations and the various notions of human temptation associated with it? Once he finishes it, dad will certainly be having the last laugh.
As you can see, there's something out there for every type of dad. And at Rest In Pieces, we know that what dad wants more than anything else is to sit back, relax, have a pint whilst doing a puzzle, and to maintain the dad bod. 😉
