So you still don’t have the perfect gift for your significant other for Valentine’s Day, huh? Not to worry—you may have left things to the last minute, but with Amazon Prime shipping, anything is possible. Here are 11 gifts for your main squeeze that will still arrive by February 14.

1. Funko Pop! Television: Bob Ross

If you’ve got a nerd in your life, you can never go wrong with a Funko Pop! figure. There’s one for every kind of fandom, whether your sweetie is a fan of Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Mister Rogers, or Iron Man. We can’t help but be delighted by the Bob Ross version.

Buy it on Amazon for $11.

2. Paddywax Parks Collection Candle

Candles make great all-purpose gifts, whether you’re in a committed relationship or you’ve just started dating someone. Paddywax’s Parks candles have scents inspired by beloved natural parks like Yosemite (cottonwood and oak), Grand Canyon (cactus flower and fern), Great Smoky Mountains (maplewood and moss), Yellowstone (sagebrush and fir), and Glacier (white pine and hemlock). Get your significant other a candle that reminds them of their favorite place or that inspires them to want to visit somewhere new—hopefully with you.

Buy it on Amazon for $28 to $30.

3. Baratza Virtuoso Conical Burr Coffee Grinder

If your beloved loves coffee, chances are, they’ve been coveting a fancy burr grinder for a while. A high-end grinder is one of the first things baristas recommend when it comes to making really good coffee at home. If your favorite coffee connoisseur has been making do with a cheap blade grinder, we recommend splurging for the Baratza Virtuoso, a high-end model that features 40 different settings and produces the consistent, even grind that is necessary for coffee to extract properly.

If you’re not ready to drop $230 on a kitchen gadget, the slightly cheaper Baratza Encore is the brand’s most popular grinder, and it’s an excellent alternative, though it’s a little slower and a little louder than the Virtuoso. (This $35 Cuisinart option isn't quite as good, but we admit that it's a hard-to-beat price.)

Buy it on Amazon for $230.

4. Living Language Dothraki

If date night for you means settling down with the latest episode of Game of Thrones, consider giving your beau the gift of language—the Dothraki language, that is. The 128-page book and one-hour audio course is written by David J. Peterson, the “language creator” who developed Dothraki for the HBO show, and includes all the phrases, vocabulary, and grammar that you need to know, including some words you have never heard before on TV.

Buy it on Amazon for $16.

5. Wowbox Canvas and Leather Messenger Bag

It can blend, crush, chop, whisk, and puree, processing everything from smoothies to chopped nuts to whipped egg whites. Home cooks and Great British Bake Off fans will be delighted by this KitchenAid immersion blender, which is $35 off right now.

Nothing says “I love you” like a foot massage. You don’t have to get in there with your own hands, though. TheraFlow’s dual foot-massage roller soothes tired feet, stimulating myofascial release with gentle, sustained pressure as the user glides their feet across the rollers.

Buy it on Amazon for $19.

8. Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 Instant Film Camera

An instant camera is one of those slightly pricey purchases that people love but hesitate to buy for themselves. Do they really need to be able to print photos on demand when they just got Portrait Mode? No, but they'll be delighted by the option! Give your beloved the gift of being the most popular person at the party with this retro-looking Fujifilm instant camera, which is conveniently $62 off right now.

Buy it on Amazon for $118.

9. Pendleton 5th Avenue Throw

This one is particularly cozy. As one reviewer writes, “I've used several Pendleton blankets before, but trust me, this new 5th Avenue line feels twice as soft and luxurious as their other blankets.”

They come in an assortment of adorable animal designs that your cat (or your significant other's!) will delight in trying to kill.

Welcome to the Party, Pal: A Die Hard Board Game is Coming

On the heels of the 30th anniversary of the classic Bruce Willis action film Die Hard last year, tabletop board game company The OP has announced that John McClane will once again battle his way through Nakatomi Plaza. Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist is a board game officially licensed by Fox Consumer Products that will drop players into a setting familiar to anyone who has seen the film: As New York cop McClane tries to reconcile with his estranged wife, he must navigate a team of cutthroat thieves set on overtaking a Los Angeles high-rise.

The game is expected to have a one-against-many format, with one player assuming the role of McClane and the other players conspiring as the thieves to eliminate him from the Plaza.

The OP, also known as USAOpoly, has previously created games based on Avengers: Infinity War and the Harry Potter franchise. Die Hard has spawned four sequels, the latest being 2013’s A Good Day to Die Hard. Willis will likely return as McClane for a sixth installment that will alternate between the present day and his rookie years in the NYPD. That film has no release date set.

The board game is expected to arrive this spring.

Mickey Mouse recently turned 90 years old, and soon, you’ll be able to celebrate with LEGO. Steamboat Willie, the classic Disney short film that introduced Mickey Mouse to the world in 1928, has now been recreated in a LEGO set that will be released on April 1.

The 751-piece LEGO version of the S.S. Willie features grayscale bricks that recreate the original black-and-white aesthetic of the original film. The 10-inch-long LEGO boat features moving steam pipes and paddle wheels and comes with new Mickey and Minnie minifigures. It’s also equipped with a ship’s wheel, a life buoy, a buildable bell, and a working crane that can lift the vessel’s potato-bin cargo.

The Steamboat Willie set was born out of the company’s fan-generated LEGO Ideas initiative several years ago. Creator Máté Szabó submitted the idea to LEGO in June 2016, then LEGO designers John Ho and Crystal Marie Fontan worked to adapt the set for retail sale, creating decorative elements and the new Mickey and Minnie Mouse minifigures.
