500 piece jigsaw puzzles for adults

With the UK lockdown having no end in sight, finding new ways to make the most of every night is becoming increasingly difficult. But instead of trying to reinvent the wheel, why not go back to basics with a good old-fashioned jigsaw puzzle?

What was considered a hobby for children before Covid has suddenly become the hottest lockdown activity for adults, with people reminded of how meditative it can be to sit down to put the pieces together – especially when things seem to be falling apart in the outside world.

Puzzles are equally enjoyable alone, as a couple, or as a family, making it a perfect containment activity for any life situation. For our picks of the eight best 500-piece jigsaw puzzles you can buy on Amazon, keep scrolling.
