Christmas Puzzles for Adults
I love to put together puzzles & Christmas, so this post is all about Christmas Puzzless for Adults. This website is all about reducing stress, improving happiness, and learning to tap into that playful inner child. I write alot about ways to reduce stress and creating a work/play balance. Often we find ourselves so busy we are missing time with family and friends. Activities like adult coloring and putting puzzles together with each other serve two purposes. One purpose is the obvious…activities that promote stress reduction. The second purpose is to find activities you can do together with your spouse, partner, kids, grandkids, and/or friends. I’m going to talk about putting puzzles together in this article.
Several years ago I was addicted to putting together puzzles. Not just ANY puzzle, but I loved the 2000 piece puzzles. This puzzle was exactly what I had several years ago. It’s a 2000 piece Springbok puzzle, that is really rare to find these days.
I’m pretty excited about now. There is another puzzle I had several years ago, (actually about 27 years ago), and I just found it! It’s a 2000 piece puzzle with victorian dolls at a tea party. I found a vintage puzzle, and it’s unopened and I just bought it! Fun!!!
What I want you to begin to think about is how you can find an area to work on your puzzles this winter. Get a card table, or find a table large enough to put your puzzle on so you can leave it up until it’s finished. Imaging yourself putting this together with your spouse, with other family members or when friends come to visit. Imagine sharing hot mugs of cocoa, listening to music in the background, diffusing a nice holiday essential oil mix of cinnamon, clove and orange. Imagine how much fun it is to relax with friends, enjoy smalltalk or sharing memories, and look for the right puzzle pieces!
Now that I’ve found that vintage puzzle, I’m super excited! I’m also looking at a few Christmas Puzzles. I’ll share some nice puzzles, and start with the 500 piece sets. I prefer at least 1000 pieces, but if you’ve never put a complicated puzzle together before, you may want to start with 500 pieces. Here are a few examples of 500 piece Christmas puzzles.
500 Piece Christmas Puzzles
Here are some 1000 piece Christmas puzzles. The more pieces the puzzle has, of course, the more complicated it is to put together. I find though, with 1000 pieces or more, the pictures are so beautiful.

Now we are getting ready to get into the FUN stuff!!! 2000 piece Christmas puzzles.
2000 Piece Christmas Puzzles
Think of the possibilities this season. Have a girlfriends night out at your house with snacks, cocoa, music, fun, and everyone work on the puzzle. Or couples night out! Have a couple over to your house, and work on the puzzle as you enjoy refreshments and nice conversation. OR… have the grandkids over for a nice night of putting up your tree, decorating a gingerbread house, sipping on cocoa, and working on your puzzle. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination!
And this season…take time for YOU. Take time to PLAY!
