WHSmith Limited Edition Christmas Puzzles

WH Smith is a UK store and they do their own, specially commissioned, limited edition Christmas puzzle each year.  They are all panoramic in shape, very British in design, and still have gold foil accents.  WH Smith has an online store here, but they will not ship outside of the UK, mores the pity. However, you can find these puzzles on ebay. Even the older ones crop up with regularity. I’m in the process of collecting them myself, so I don’t have good photos for all of them.

2012 “VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS” by Finlay

(Note: This appears to be identical to the 1999 puzzle, which is a bit odd. Perhaps a rerelease. Fortunately, 2013 and 2014 puzzles are original.)

    1998 village Christmas is by Colin Warden. I have collected every puzzle since 1998 (except 2005 – no release) I have also just purchased the newly released 2015 – A Christmas Market, so have the full set since 1998

  1. […] I’ve been trying to do ALL of the limited edition Christmas puzzles released for 2014 so that I could review them for the blog. It’s not exactly a hardship but it is a bit of a time challenge.  This is the 2014 limited edition Christmas puzzle released by WHSmith.  You can see their past year releases on our WHSmith Christmas page here.
