Geminid Meteor Shower will be peaking the next couple of nights. The best time to view this is from 9:00 PM on.
Comet Lovejoy is now visible with the eye in the pre-dawn skies. Here is a link for locating the comet.
If you are looking for a great gift for the beginning astronomer, we have several First Light Astronomy Kits for sale, $30.
These contain a Sky Atlas, a planetsphere, a guide to the night sky with Binoculars.
