A proposal with a difference

We get lots of great photos sent through every day from customers buying personalised gifts with their family photos and sharing their memories with their loved ones through our products.  When Aaron Wheatley's order came through back in June 2014 we got in contact with him and asked if we could share his story...

Personalised Jigsaw Order

Aaron ordered a  personalised A4 96 piece jigsaw puzzle that contained a photo and a personal message "Will you marry me <3".  This was our first proposal jigsaw and just had to follow the story.  We made contact with Aaron and asked if we could be kept updated with the proposal, which was due to take place in August...

Fast forward a couple of months and we have fantastic news that Aaron and his new fiancée Soltera got engaged earlier this month!  

Aaron tells us the story: "Soltera had left to go to the US Air Force for her basic training and my only way of contacting her was through letters.  I got the puzzle made by Something Personal which I thought was amazing and just brilliant quality.  I sent Soltera 12 pieces in each letter.  I then handed the final 8 pieces with the big question when we met up in Texas on 11th August 2014."

"We had a two week holiday but on the third to last night after an amazing meal we walked down to this jetty and sat and watched the sunset fall over lake Texoma.  I then got u[ and placed a small brown envelope beside Soltera's right hand and knelt behind her.  She looked at the envelope and then at me as I asked if she would marry me."

"Thankfully she said 'yes' and we watched the sunset come down as Soltera set the final 8 pieces of the puzzle into place."

Aaron and Soltera are planning on having their jigsaw framed for their new house.

We would like to wish them huge Congratulations and are so happy to share your story with everyone.

Aaron said "Thank you again for the amazing puzzle your company have created for me to propose to my amazing fiancée."

If you are thinking of proposing or have a fantastic surprise for a loved one, tell them through a jigsaw!  The suspense of fitting the pieces together along with the message or photo adds to the occasion.
