Heat-activated constellation mug
Skywatchers can take their appreciation for the night sky indoors with this heat-changing constellation mug. When hot liquid is poured into the mug, Cassiopeia, Orion, Perseus, Ursa Major (Big Dipper), Ursa Minor (Little Dipper), plus six other constellations, magically appear. When the cup cools down, the outlines of the constellations disappear, and only the stars in the night sky are left.
The heat-activated mug, which retails for $13.95 on Amazon, is microwave-safe, but requires hand washing to ensure that the stars don't fade away.Slide 3 of 41

Game of Thrones Clue
Cersei Lannister, with the candlestick, in the throne room. Winter is coming, and it's a good time to plan cozy nights in with friends, complete with snacks, warm beverages and board games. Fans of the HBO series "Game of Thrones" and the classic board game Clue can rejoice over this fun crossover. The game plays like the standard version of Clue, but now, all the drama of Westeros — from high treason to good, old-fashioned betrayal — is weaved into each murder mystery.
Game of Thrones Clue includes 12 suspects (including Cersei) and six new weapons. The double-sided board also means you can solve murder mysteries in the Red Keep in King's Landing or Meereen in Slaver's Bay. The game, which retails for $36 on Amazon, can accommodate 2-6 players and is recommended for ages 18+.Slide 5 of 41
