With Etsy projects gone wrong and maybe even a shot at cutting your own hair under your belt, we’re guessing the best puzzles have remained the simplest way to keep yourself entertained within the confines of your own home. Sure, jigsaw puzzles might remind you of holidays spent at your Great-Aunt Ethel’s, but there’s something to be said about the old-school activity’s ability to keep you occupied.
As we close in on a year of quarantine, tumbling down an Instagram rabbit hole can feel more difficult than ever, but we can all benefit from time away from the endless scroll.

Plus, if you’re bummed out and missing tackling 1000-piece jigsaw puzzles with loved ones over the holidays, try getting your family members to order one for themselves and take a stab at it together over Zoom.
The nostalgic simplicity of a puzzle session is a universally welcome reprieve, so whether you’re shopping for yourself or someone else, return to a simpler time with the 25 best puzzles that are equal parts good-looking and challenging.
