It's getting cold outside, but that doesn't mean there aren't fun projects to do with warm apple cider in hand. Toss the board games and panda puzzles, and instead go on a Cardboard Safari.

Sold at the W Hotel Store, these quirky puzzles transform into three-dimensional moose, rhino and deer heads.

Assembly is most definitely required, and that's just the fun of it. So break out your craft boxes and decorate these puzzles, made of 100 percent recycled paper without any toxic materials. Also, these puzzles make the perfect gift, especially for those who like nothing better than hunting for must-have eco-decorations.
