Welcome to 2018 everyone! This is an exciting time of year as new releases start hitting fast and furious. I already showed the new Heye puzzles for 2018 (as much as we’ve seen of them anyway). And the new Gibsons. Now let’s take a look at what else has recently hit the market.
For your Edification – A Tip on Saving Shipping Costs:
I used to never order a single puzzle because the shipping cost for just one can be nearly as much as the puzzle itself! Yet I’m not always ready to spend $75 to get free shipping either. That’s why I really enjoy the Puzzle Warehouse’s “Puzzle of the Month” club because it means year-long free shipping. You’ll receive a puzzle each month with Puzzle of the Month club, and when you buy other items at any time, upon checkout you are asked if you’d like to hold that new purchase to ship with your puzzle of the month. Yes! This means I can order a single puzzle and have it sent to me later with my monthly shipment and there’s no shipping fee on it. I also keep a “Wish List” on puzzle warehouse, so when I get my email about my monthly selection, I can easily exchange it for a puzzle I really want. Win/win.
When Puzzles are Out of Stock:
The inventory at Puzzle Warehouse moves quickly, and due to limited warehouse space, only certain amounts of any one titles are brought in at a time. But most of our suppliers replenish rapidly. When a puzzle is out of stock, it’s likely to be back in stock within a week or two. Enter your email address on the out of stock page to be notified when it returns so you can place an order before it’s out again!

These are my top picks of the new puzzles that are currently available at Puzzle Warehouse.
TOP PICK #1: “Jewel of Dakkadia” by Nene Thomas, Sunsout, 1000 pieces
There are a lot of gorgeous new fantasy puzzles from Nene Thomas that just hit Puzzle Warehouse. You can see them all here. But my favorite is this golden summer scene. (Click on any image in this post to see the puzzle on Puzzle Warehouse.)
TOP PICK #2: “The Witching Hour” by Geoffrey Tristram, Cobble Hill, 1000 pieces
