But before we get there...

Imagine this—You're hanging out with Cody Simpson (you're already loving where this is going, huh?) and he tells you that he made you a Christmas playlist of his favorite holiday tunes. Well, guess what? That kinda happened.

No, he's not physically standing next to you (no Christmas miracles here, sorry), but the young singer did team up with Songza to create Cody Simpson's Christmas Crowd-Pleasers, a hand-picked mix of new and old holiday hits that's perfect for a seasonal get-together or unwrapping gifts.

Wait, there's more! E! News chatted with the 17-year-old Aussie cutie about his Songza collaboration, working with Justin Bieber, his future projects, spending time with family, friends like Miley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger and the latest update about his relationship with the gorgeous Gigi Hadid. Yeah, we hooked you up. You're welcome.

"I made a little list of some of my favorite Christmas songs from when I was a kid and some songs I've done in the past for the holidays," Simpson tells us of putting together his Songza playlist. "It was good."

So what kind of tracks can you find on there? Jack Johnson's "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer," Bruce Springsteen's "Merry Christmas Baby" and even Simpson's rendition of "Please Come Home for Christmas."

What you won'tfind on there? His music with Biebs, mainly because it's not Christmas music, but there are some more gems from the young artists (like "Home to Mama") to look forward to. "We did about 14 songs. Some really cool stuff. I just got right on the guitar and he did some great melodies so we did something cool together."

Although Cody explains that they haven't really nailed down when they'll roll out the album, he did admit they've "entertained" the idea of a possible joint tour! Cue shrieks of excitement everywhere. But it won't happen any time soon. Cody explains they're each kinda doing their own thing right now, but "there will definitely be plans to do some more."

Plus, the soon-to-be 18-year-old is hoping to take some down time for the holidays. "I think I'm gonna take a little break over the holidays and New Years, spend time with [the family]. My birthday's coming right after New Years and I'm gonna be 18."

And, of course, part of those celebrations will be with his model girlfriend Gigi. So what do you get the girl who has everything?! Well, Cody admits he hasn't exactly picked out the gift yet (but to be fair, even if he did, we wouldn't want to ruin the surprise), but he has an idea of what to get his lady.

"I haven't [gotten a gift] yet. I got time. I know her pretty well, I know what to do," he tells us. "Plus she likes everything I get her, even though she does have a lot. I think what means the most to her…she likes letters and stuff like that and I like to write songs so I'll probably go down that route. I like to give things money cannot buy. I think those are the most precious," and adds that things with Gigi are "amazing."

Whoa! Killin' it in the romance department, Cody.

As for what hewants for Christmas, it's pretty simple. "I'm honestly asking for nothing but a nice time with my family. I travel so much that I don't get to see them as often as I'd like to and it would be nice to just relax and just get some down time, maybe do some yoga and start surfing again."

Cody recently got to spend some down time with new lovebirds Miley and Patrick in Nashville.

"We met up in Miami for Art Basel and we all just met up down there and, coincidentally, we were all going to Nashville at the same time, so we all flew to Nashville together and chilled on a nice ranch out there, ride around on quads and have nice campfires and it was fun couple days."

And while some may find Miley and Patrick an odd pairing, Simpson gives them his stamp of approval. "I that's what's cool. I think opposites attract," he tells us.

Meanwhile, the pop singer has been keeping busy on some new stuff for the fans!

"I'm putting together a pretty cool catalog of music, so far I've been writing every single day and developing something pretty special and unique and finally me," he tells E! News. "I moved record labels, so I kind of get a fresh start now doing it the way I wanna do it because now I'm kinda old enough to have the creative freedom and the tools to do it the way I wanted to do it.

"It's really exciting for me and I'm excited to hopefully put some stuff out early at the top of the year and get rollin'."

Does that make you excited?! Sound off in the comments!
