17 Pretty Puzzles to Occupy Your Coffee Table and Your Mind

I honestly couldn’t tell you the last time I did a puzzle. High school maybe? But now that we’re all stuck inside a lot more than we ever thought we’d be, finding little things to pass the time that don’t involve watching the news or scrolling through our emails yet again is more relevant than ever. One of the things that a lot of people are turning to at this time is puzzles. Doing a puzzle is a mindless task that can be done at any time of day for any length of time that you want, and your coffee table is suddenly highly Instagrammable because of it. All of this certainly explains why puzzles are selling out left and right. (Trust me—I’ve been shopping for one of my own lately.)

I think this week might be the first time in my life that I’ve shopped for a puzzle online, and I was blown away by how many pretty ones are on the market. I scoured through the beautiful photography puzzles, ones of iconic works of art, cats, disco balls, food—you name it—and compiled the prettiest ones for all of your time-passing needs. Scroll to shop before they inevitably sell out.
