Dahling, you don’t look a day over 28. Ryan Gosling celebrates his 33rd birthday Tuesday, and while his friends and family are sure to get him some thoughtful gifts, rabid fans probably want to get in on the action too. (JK, only the ones who also are rabid stalkers.) To help them in their quest toward a restraining order, we’ve compiled a list of thoughtful presents to get the Gos, based on his movies.

Blow-up doll
Obvi. Longtime rumor has it that Gosling took his rubberized “Lars and the Real Girl” co-star home with him, but he’s probably due for a new one by now.

Nicotine patches
Let’s be honest here, while his “Blue Valentine” character Dean started off smokin’ hot, his smokin’ was just gross by the end of the movie. He could use a little help to get back on track.

Stationery set
He must be out after writing a letter to Allie every damn day in “The Notebook.”

Leather driving gloves
When avoiding a sticky situation in “Drive,” it’s extra-important to have a strong grip on the wheel. These also look excellent when you’re just walking around cracking your knuckles.

Gift certificate to Hugo Boss
We wouldn’t presume to know exactly what his “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” character Jacob would pick out, so we’ll let this stylist cat decide for himself.

DVD copy of “Remember the Titans”
Yes, he’s in this, but it’s only a bit part, and this movie is so damn good that everyone deserves a copy. The locker-room singing! The overcoming of racial biases! Hayden Panettiere as a tiny child!
