Box containing a jigsaw puzzle.

Each puzzle in the “Great Minds” series from Uncommon Goods is inspired by a different famous thinker from history.

They’re done when they see the wooden “dinosaur egg” sitting in front of them.

Framed New York Times crossword puzzle.
The New York Times

This one’s for the friend who doesn’t let a Sunday pass without finishing the New York Times crossword puzzle.
