Building LEGO sets can be a soothing way to spend an evening — especially when you're tired of staring at screens. Like crafting, LEGO "work" is a great stress-reducer. But most kits are made for kids, or unwieldy to keep around (not everyone wants to have a scale model of Hogwarts sitting on the coffee table). That’s why LEGO has been making more and more sets with grownups in mind.
LEGO botanicals are some of our favorites — they actually add to your decor, rather than take away from it — and they’re discounted by $10 at Amazon right now.
Shipping is free, but you can get started on your kits even sooner with Amazon Prime. Don't have an account yet? Sign up here for a free trial. Don't forget: The holidays are coming. You might want to take advantage of this deal to scoop up (and stash away) a couple of gifts.

Real bonsai trees are a lot of work, but a LEGO version is low-stress fun. It’s a pretty manageable 878 pieces, and shoppers rave about how entertaining it is. One builder calls it “stupendously easy” thanks to how the pieces are separated into numbered bags, and says it’s “a wonderful bit of nostalgia.” This gentleman put his together in an hour and a half, “drinking and enjoying some smooth jazz while doing it, to help unwind after a long work week.” He adds, “There's just something therapeutic about the botanical collection in my opinion.”
Fully assembled, the LEGO Bonsai still draws plenty of raves, with one shopper, who displays his bonsai on the mantle, gradually evolving his tree with the (included) pink blooms (which are actually a mix of tiny pink flowers and tiny pink frogs) and : "Seasonally it begins its slow change from green leaves to cherry blossoms. Visitors to my house assume it is natural until I happen to mention to them to step closer…." Many builders love swapping between the leaves and blossoms based on season.
This dad is “in love with the fact that the majority of the ‘cherry blossoms’ are tiny pink frogs….” He also appreciates “the little ‘facts’ printed throughout the instruction book. It's a great kit!”
The LEGO Bonsai Kit is normally $50, but right now it’s $40. It’s also very hard to get, so you should grab one before it’s out of stock again!

For something more colorful, there's the LEGO Flower Bouquet, a detailed interpretation of blooms like roses, daisies and poppies. Each flower comes with a long stem (that you also build), so you can display them in your favorite vase or jar. For one shopper it was “love at … first sight,” thanks to the LEGO Flower Bouquet's “combination of beauty and functionality.” Her entire family was “wowed over the final masterpiece….”
Some customers found it a bit difficult to put together due to the small pieces, but the directions are “step by step and … easy to follow.” This grandmother says it’s not easy to assemble but she “did not want it to be easy … you have accepted a challenge!” That's part of the fun of working with LEGOS.

And many shoppers love how these are flowers will stay beautiful forever. Working solo on the LEGO Flower Bouquet can be meditative, but working together can make for a great bonding experience — one parent says,"My daughter, my son, and I loved building this together because we each got to pick a couple flowers to work on." Now that the final product is on display, they recall the experience "fondly every time we see it.”
This intricate set usually costs $50 but it’s discounted by nearly $10 right now. And, like the bonsai, it tends to disappear from shelves quickly. Take advantage of the sale price today to be able to add a bit of color to your winter months.
