The Vampire Diaries‘ Ian Somerhalder turns 33 today, and should his fans want to gift him something, there’s only one thing he needs: A donation to his foundation, which aims to “empower, educate and collaborate with people and projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures.” Those who follow him on Twitter know just how seriously he takes the Ian Somerhalder Foundation. With the mystery of the perfect present for him solved, we’re busying ourselves pondering what we would gift his alter ego Damon Salvatore, EW’s Ultimate Sexy Beast. I’ll tell you my ideas, if you tell me yours:

• A bottle of bourbon

• A new John Varvatos shirt

• A gift certificate to a dance school where he could learn any style he wants (the man loves to move)

• A large frame that can hold multiple pictures, with only one photo in the center. It tells him that he’s home, and that we want him here for awhile

• Shower gel, bubble bath, and hand soaps

Your turn. Keep it TV-14!
