If you're still figuring out what to get your boyfriend for Valentine's Day, shipping time is definitely becoming a factor. Fortunately if you have Amazon Prime, this means the world is still pretty much your oyster. Free two-day shipping goes a long way in excusing the sin of procrastination.
Of course it doesn't solve all your problems. If you still don't even have an idea of what he wants, it may be too embarrassing to ask at this point. You could rely on the suggestions in Amazon's Valentine's Day Gift Shop, but choices like the Soft Rock Mix in their "Gifts of Gadgetry" section and a stick of deodorant in the "Gifts for Him" section may not be a hit with everyone. Instead, I would suggest perusing a little-known section curated entirely by the collective id of Amazon's gigantic customer base–the revelatory list of Amazon's Most Wished For Items.
There you will find the products most often added to Wishlists and Registries, helpfully broken down by department. While the Best Sellers list is full of unexciting staples like tube socks and batteries, and the list of the most popular products ordered as gifts is simply a document of what people think others would like, the Most Wished For Items list stands as a testament to all the things people want, but don't want to buy for themselves. The whole list is full of good Valentine's Day gifts, but to make my selection the item must also be eligible for Prime and also currently on sale:
For The Gamer
Ticket To Ride ($
