I can’t think of the last time I did a puzzle, much less even thought about doing a puzzle, but with so much time at home lately, I can only stare at a screen for so long. I want to do something with my hands! Still, I wasn’t sure if I could find the perfect puzzle for me—something harder than a child’s too-easy game and more bearable than a a 10,000-piece death wish guaranteed to make me more exhausted than excited. Do the perfect puzzles for adults even exist? For a while, I thought the answer was no, but then I took a deep dive and found some seriously cute, tough-enough puzzles worth my coin and my time.
The first puzzles to catch my eye were the ones made by Jiggy. These under-$50 kits are basically designed with the millennial aesthetic in mind: they come in a cute clear jar, have images of leafy succulents or illustrated boob graphics, and are just under 500 pieces, so you don’t have to devote more than a week to getting them done (depending on your preferences and pace, that is). They also come with puzzle glue, so you can solidify your completed masterpiece, frame it and hang it on your wall. Incredible! No surprise, though, Jiggy’s puzzles are almost entirely sold out right now—like I said, puzzles are really having a moment! Still, that doesn’t mean you can’t partake in some puzzle playtime yourself, as I’ve taken the liberty of finding other great options that are just as pretty and fun to piece together.
