Featuring artwork from emerging female artists, each JIGGY puzzle comes in a reusable glass jar and includes a tube of puzzle glue so the framing part of the process (should you wish to partake) is easy peasy. Founded by Kaylin Marcotte in late 2019, JIGGY just recently collaborated with Bloomingdale’s for the 2021 holiday season, releasing a 500-piece puzzle featuring stunning artwork of the iconic 59th St. and Lexington Ave. storefront. It’d be perfect for the fashionista in your family or friend group.
