It may be a while before life returns to normal enough for us to go on a hot date or take a real vacation. But for now, Target has your back. You can pass the time and color your way to a romantic getaway with your favorite celebrity crush thanks to the Crush and Color coloring books. Your dream date choices include Keanu Reeves, Jason Momoa, and soon, Idris Elba.

Coloring books can provide much-needed relief from stress and anxiety. They’re relatively inexpensive and require minimal supplies, making them a great creative outlet. Crush and Color takes a humorous approach to this relaxing pastime. Illustrated by Italian artist Maurizio Campidelli, each coloring book is 80 pages long and features your chosen heartthrob in 35 whimsical scenarios, captured in a wild amount of detail. Keanu Reeves playing with kittens? Check. Idris Elba cooking a romantic dinner for two? You better believe it. Jason Momoa bringing you an obscenely large bouquet of flowers? Oh Jason, you shouldn’t have!

The pages alternate between designs you can color and hilarious snippets like this one: “Hop on the back of Keanu’s motorcycle and let the wind blow through your hair as he blows your mind. Hold on tight on this romantic ride through the backroads of your desires.” Well, don’t mind if I do!

Single-sided printing and perforated edges make it easy to tear out your completed masterpieces and hang them on your fridge, on the ceiling above your bed, or plaster them all over your walls for a 2020 version of your teenage bedroom—minus the peeling paint and scotch tape remnants that never came off (sorry, Mom).

And as coloring book fans know, quality paper is key to get the most out of your designs. Crush and Color delivers on that front too, holding up well to a variety of coloring tools so you can work with pencils, crayon, or even watercolor. 

Crush and Color: Keanu Reeves ($10.99) and Crush and Color: Jason Momoa ($9.79) are available at Target. Crush and Color: Idris Elba is currently available for preorder and is expected to be available September 1.
