Along with COVID-19 social distancing comes a whole bunch of stir-crazy people desperate for fun things to do at home. For as long as our favorite parks, restaurants and bars are closed, we need new ways to pass the time indoors.

One of the best indoor activities that works your brain and patience? Puzzles! Puzzles are a great collaborative time burner that is as calming as it is satisfying. I mean, come on, when you get that last piece in and the whole image is complete? There are few feelings better than that.

Piecework Puzzles are some of the most beautifully designed puzzles on the market right now. They’re definitely worth investing in during our next couple of weeks trapped indoors.

Just check out the beautiful, vaguely erotic design of Piecework’s Forbidden Fruit puzzle:

The founders, Jena and Rachel, used the name “Piecework” out of a desire for people to slow down and be present in the moment. Much like a puzzle, they want to encourage their customers to savor time with loved ones and enjoy the process of solving, rather than charging toward, the end result.

They’ve got a bunch of different designs available in their online store including a colorful still-life portrait of fruit, a poker game, a smushed piece of cake and a meta puzzle of someone doing a puzzle. Woah.

Rather than putting together a painting or cartoon design, these photograph puzzles look stunning when you’re finished. They range from 500 to 1,000 pieces in difficulty.

Gather your social isolation buddies, enjoy a relaxing bonding session and take in a beautiful portrait image as your reward.
