Best jigsaw puzzles for adults: 33 of the chicest designs to shop now
With social distancing in full swing and the nation spending more time at home than ever, jigsaw puzzles for adults have never been more in demand – or on trend.
‘We’re experiencing high demand for jigsaw puzzles and sales are similar to what we usually see around Christmas (our busiest time of the year for puzzles),’ a spokesperson for John Lewis & Partners tells YOU, adding that they’re currently awaiting a restock of their sellout Galison 1,000-piece ranges.
And department stores aren’t the only ones seeing the surge – even Amazon availability is low as we look to puzzles to give us some mindful, screen-free downtime (until you take a picture of the finished product for Instagram, that is).
From complex designs to soothing, colourful patterns, they are obviously an age-old boredom buster, but puzzles also make a great distraction when you’re feeling overwhelmed or anxious – as many of us are in the current climate. Mental health charity Mind even notes the usefulness of games and puzzles as a coping mechanism during crisis.
So whatever your reason is to get puzzling, here are 33 seriously stylish, grown-up jigsaw puzzles for adults that you can still order direct to your door. You’ll be surprised how much they might help you to switch off.
