The Best Sites To Order Your Next Puzzle From

Puzzles are not a new concept. The boxes filled with cardboard or wood cutouts that, when pieced together properly, form a picture have been around since the mid-1700s — and are often tied to the likes of children, retired dads, and my 85-year-old grandmother. But now, nearly 300 years later in the unusual spring of 2020, puzzles have suddenly become a hot and trendy commodity.

Our already limited apartment surfaces are covered in them, our social media feeds flooded with chaotic pictures of them, our pets are chewing on "lost" pieces of them, our thoughts are consumed with them: but damn it, we must puzzle. To satisfy this strong urge to solve, we hunted down the best sites for delivering our next challenge in a box directly to our doorsteps — ASAP.

Whether a burgeoning puzzle enthusiast in search of an attainable 100-piecer or a president of the WFH puzzle club who's onto the next 1,000+ scene, the options ahead will keep your wandering mind sharp, your idle fingers busy, and your Instagram story on-trend during these socially remote days.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.


Among such scenes titled "Taco Cats Space" to "Galaxy Cat Universe" and beyond, Zazzle pretty much sells material from your most fantastical puzzle-obsessed dreams. But, if you're more into the classics, it's got a breadth of Seurat to Vincent van Gogh-style options too.

If there was ever a compelling case to be made for Instagramming your quarantine puzzle, this covetable brand is making it. Although quite a few of the most popular styles, designed by cool-girl female artists, are currently on a waitlist, there is still a handful you can get your paws on now — to either display as a decor piece inside their smooth glass canister, or to fawn out across an open surface inside your space as a chaotic-chic scene. Each kit also comes packaged with puzzle glue, so you can immortalize your master solving skills with a framable art piece.
