This recent one by Holiday Extras challenges netizens to find a toaster packed among a load of luggage.

The graphic was created after the company found that the traditional toaster is no longer the gift of choice for newlyweds.
In fact, household appliances were the second-least popular wedding gift (second only to charity donations), with most couples preferring cash (34 per cent) or money towards their honeymoon (32 per cent).
‘Having conducted this research, and learning that 70% of people said they’d use a website that allowed them to add holiday extras to their wedding list, we’ve decided to launch a brand new service called Honeymoon Extras,’ said Seamus McCauley, Editor-in-Chief at Holiday Extras.
‘As with every gift, it’s the thought that counts. But, as our survey shows, times are changing – with couples now favouring experiences over more traditional appliances.’
And if you’re struggling to find the answer, feast your eyes towards the top centre of the image.

This has fallen from as many as 15 per cent of travellers back in December 2018.
‘As bewildered as we all may feel about the ever-changing Brexit plans, politics needn’t cause extra hassle when it comes to planning and booking breaks,’ said Seamus McCauley, Editor at Holiday Extras.
‘As our survey shows, almost all Brits are still digging out their passports this summer, despite Brexit, and we hope they can pick out the hidden passport in our playful puzzle too.’
