How HBO saved Valentine's Day (A gift guide)

10:00 AM on 02.09.2017 // Scarecroodle

(Or might save it. Who knows?)

Hey guys & gals, it's just five more days until Valentine's Day. Have you bought anything nice for your partner? (Or for yourself?)

If you're sick of giving jewelry (and who isn't?), maybe it's time to head over to the HBO Store to check out their wide array of... okay, well, it's mostly a lot of Game of Thrones stuff. But it's neat stuff! Honest!

Check out the full gift guide after the jump.

How deep is your love? Is it a deep bond between souls or is it more of a puppy love? Either way, you'll love these direwolf puppies... err, cubs.  Summer, Shaggy Dog, Grey Wind, and Lady are all available as adorable 9-inch plushies.

Can't choose between them? Why not buy all four? (Oh, right, money...)

Perhaps equally eye-catching is this Drogon plush, which would look equally at home on a shelf, couch, or spewing flames on a fleet of ships. He stands 8-inches tall with a 14-inch wingspan.

The HBO Store also carries a lot of Funko collectibles, including this Pop! Rides Dany on Drogon. And yes, they somehow still have series 1 Game of Thrones Mystery Minis if you missed grabbing them when they came out.

Do you like Funko but are indifferent about Game of Thrones? How about a Pop! John Oliver? The star of Last Week Tonight (and guy who replaced Jon Stewart on the Daily Show for an entire summer) is ready to bring his British wit and self-deprecating sense of humor to your shelves (or your partner's, but honestly, you're going to want to keep this one for yourself).

At any rate, you'll be surprised by the stuff you find at the HBO Store (I know I was). Some things make for very practical gifts (after all, who doesn't love a plushie?) while other things are impractical (but that just makes it more of a surprise, right?).

And yes, the HBO store also has conventional gift ideas like mugs, shirts, shot glasses, and even jewelry, if you feel like being boring.
