If you’ve already gotten your bae their Valentine’s Day gift, don’t let them catch wind of Bill Nye‘s killer V-Day game. Because your stuffed animal and box of chocolates are sure to pale in comparison.

As part of the Imgurian Valentine’s Day Exchange, user @capewoman8 was lucky enough to get matched with everyone’s favorite scientist. He went above and beyond, incorporating his own #personalbrand into the gift package—while also keeping in mind what capewoman8 might like.

In line with his status as science guy, Nye wrote a cosmic love poem with some adorable heavenly bodies.

Here is the ‘Gift a Giraffe’ package my colleagues and I put together for our match, @capewoman8. First, a cosmic love poem.

And after looking at his assigned Imgurian’s profile and seeing that she’s a friend of felines, he decided to ship her cats off to the stars. Well, sort of.

Inside the envelope:

Check out the slew of other gifts that Nye sent his beloved:

Happy Valentine’s from Bill Nye

Meanwhile, we’ll just sob about being single and not having Nye’s phone number.
