He hasn't figured out how to use his laundry basket yet, he always needs a haircut, and he only comes round to visit when you've just baked, but despite his flaws you're a sucker for that dopey grin and easy charisma. We find out what's on the Loveable Jerk's wish list this year.

Chronicles of Never 'Elixir'
OnePointSevenFour | $400
He'll be channelling The Gos's own brand of East Village cool in these specs from James Street's shades mecca, OnePointSevenFour. Throw them on with a striped tee and a grin for the ultimate day-after-the-night-before outfit.

Morrison Brown Rustico by Ksubi
Violent Green | $220
Slick enough to get him past the doorman, but casual enough to go with his favourite back pack, you know he's going to live in these stylish stompers.

Coconut Body Wash 
Gentleman's Brand Co.
Organic coconut, avocado and macadamia oils will keep his skin baby soft, all the better to show off his lady-killer physique. This wash doesn't contain any sulphates or other nasty chemicals, and smells delish.

How Not to Be a Dick: An Everyday Etiquette Guide
Nip his natural tendency towards dick-ish behaviour in the bud with this handy, helpful guide to everyday behaviour. Straightforward advice, teamed with easy to understand illustrations (useful), means he just might take some of it on board. At least you tried, right?

TaylorMade Performance Lab Gift Voucher
Golf Central | $ 150
Working on your swing gets high-tech with the Performace Lab at brand new Golf Central. He'll be treated to two and a half hours of intense swing analysis and club fittings, to ensure he's winning on the green, as well as a take-home CD of his swing style and club recommendations, so he knows exactly what's what with his swing.

Serial Chiller Tee in Black Stone
Vanguard Fashion | $49.95
This serial chiller, and cereal killer, will appreciate this soft and wearable Vanguard tee. Be aware, if you buy him this shirt he will try and wear it to special occasions and on first dates. Rather a serial chiller than a serial killer, we say.

Punching Laundry Bag
Absolutely Fabulous | $39.95
Help him master the whole daily chores thang with this masculine plus, boxing inspired Laundry bag from Woolloongabba treasure trove, Absolutely Fabulous. Because laundry can make the best of us feel a tad aggressive, he'll be happy to stuff it with his dirties, then beat the heck out of it. 

Dinner Gift Voucher
Sichuan Bang Bang
Charming, he may be, but that doesn't mean he doesn't need help in the lady-department. A Gift Voucher to Urban List fave, and oh-so-tasty Chinese suburban gem, Sichuan Bang Bang is the perfect gift for the young man who might need some pointers on how to treat a lady. Or, if he doesn't need any help in that area (what a smooth operator), it's a great idea for a night out with the boys (chilli eating comp', anyone?). Suggest he try the Mongolian lamb ribs. He'll love you for it.

This is Not a Film
Avid Reader | $29.95
It's time he graduated from the shoot-em-ups and car chase flicks. A deeply profound and moving political statement, this Iranian documentary was shot inside the home of filmmaker Jafar Panahi while he is under house-arrest for creating 'propoganda' against the regime. Smuggled to Cannes on a USB inside a birthday cake, it's surely got enough intrigue to reel him in.
