Celestial scenes, cute creatures and food-forward picks all top our list

After a summer of puzzling on the patio, we're heading indoors again to cozy up with new batches of beautiful jigsaws. In these days of screen fatigue, it's nice to take a break and tackle something a little more tactile. We've selected puzzles from artists and retailers from across the country that we can turn to as the nights get a little longer, the days a little cooler, and our love for this hobby stays as strong as ever! Below, a list of 25 puzzles so pretty you'll want to glue them together and hang them on your wall… or pack them up and drop them off on your friends' doorstep to pass on the fun.
