Building a Lego set is a soothing way to spend an evening — especially when you're sick of staring at screens. Like crafting or coloring, Lego "work" is a great stress reducer with a rewarding result. That’s why Lego has been making more and more sets with grownups in mind. The Lego Botanical Collection features some of our favorites — they actually add to your decor rather than take away from it — and feature components made of plant-based plastic. Check out our top picks below — all currently on sale at Amazon — and start checking off your holiday shopping list ASAP.
This dynamic Lego Icons Wildflower Bouquet set was inspired by real cornflowers, lavender, Welsh poppies, cow parsley, leatherleaf ferns, daisies, larkspur and lupins. The customizable petals, leaves and stems can be adjusted to your liking, and you can even combine these with other Lego Botanical sets.
One happy Amazon reviewer found this to be a wonderful date activity: "Most of the flowers have two that you build (two daisies, two lavender, etc.) This makes for a fun date night because you can each build flowers at the same time." They added that it's "beautiful once you complete building it! The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Great gift for anyone who enjoys flowers and Legos ... Loved building this set. "
This Lego Icons Flower Bouquet has racked up a whopping 16,700+ five-star fans, who have plenty to say.
For one smitten shopper, it was “love at [...] first sight,” thanks to the bouquet's “combination of beauty and functionality.” Her entire family was “wowed over the final masterpiece.”
Some customers found it took time to put together due to the small pieces, but the directions are “step by step and … easy to follow.” This determined grandmother said it wasn't easy to assemble, but she “did not want it to be easy … you have accepted a challenge!” That's part of the joy of working with Legos.
Another fan raved: "Fun to build and looks beautiful. ... These will never die."
Working solo on the Lego bouquet can be meditative, but working together can make for a great bonding experience — one parent shared, "My daughter, my son and I loved building this together because we each got to pick a couple of flowers to work on." Now that the final product is on display, they recall the experience "fondly every time we see it.”
Looking for something simple but beautiful? Behold the Lego Orchid Building Set, a gorgeous display that was inspired by a real orchid. It looks as close as possible to the real thing thanks to the Lego designers' amazing attention to detail.
One savvy gifter wrote, "No more searching for the perfect holiday gift! This model is amazing and realistic. Not only the colors and the challenge of construction are special here — even the instruction booklet, with the hidden explanations and references, is very special."
This striking set is $10 off now, so snag it while you can and start checking off your "Nice" list!
Succulents are a super-trendy way to introduce plants into the home and enhance decor. However, even easygoing succulents require basic maintenance and proper placement — unless they're made of plastic. The Lego Succulents Building Kit includes nine different succulents, each inspired by a real-life variety. It's a great gift idea for plant lovers and black thumbs alike. With three separate instruction booklets in the pack, it’s the perfect project to enjoy with friends and family as you digest your holiday feast.
"I always enjoyed Legos growing up, and I have a few of these placed on my desk in my office cubicle," shared one excited builder. "They’re nice because I can’t have real plants due to the lack of natural sunlight. I’m finding that they make me more productive in my work."
