I remember the first weekend of Lockdown back in March, waking up at 7am and at 7:01am I was bored.
How on earth was I gonna survive the next 3 weekends of lockdown? Albeit naive thinking that’s all it would be..
I feel like lockdown has been so pure. We’ve gone back to basics, perhaps we’ve learnt a new hobby, done something we’ve always wanted to do and done the things we haven’t done for years, but love. For me, that was definitely puzzles.
I think jigsaw puzzles for adults are such a great way to relax, focus the mind and do something a bit different. Jigsaws totally transport me back to my childhood because I used to do them all the time.
Here are some of my favourite puzzles to get stuck into during Lockdown, Christmas or those rainy weekends stuck inside.
Remember those beach days on holiday? Nah, me neither. For now, I’ll just reminisce in creating beach scenes through puzzles.
This whimsical design is the cutest. You can purchase it in 500 and 1,000 pieces for the ultimate challenge.
This looks like such a challenging puzzle, but I just love Juj Winn’s colourful designs.
Does this not look like the actual dream?
I love this fresh and fruity jigsaw puzzle, it would actually look so beautiful if it was framed after completing it too.
Ok, so there’s definitely a theme with my favourite puzzles. I could literally eat this entire puzzle. Imagine how difficult it would be too!
Fine Art America also do custom puzzles. You can transform your own images into puzzles by simply uploading online and choosing between 500 to 1,000 pieces. I LOVE this personal idea for a present, they ship all over the world too.
Just like adult colouring, jigsaws are the ultimate way to switch off. Crack open a box, stick the Christmas films on and just enjoy being cosy at home during lockdown.
