I'd love to give a Chinese flute to my idol Taylor Swift for Christmas. As a singer and a musician, she must’ve tried many instruments, but I doubt she’s ever tried to play the Chinese flute. This instrument has a long history is China, and is known for its clear, crisp sound. If she used the flute on her next album, it would be a great surprise.

I’d like to give actor and singer Karry Wong a massage chair. He is still a student so in addition to performing, he also has to concentrate on his studies. I think a massage chair would help him relax, rest well, and recharge for the next day.

Top 10: Which new subject should your school teach?

I’d give a Hunger Games-themed handmade greeting card to Jennifer Lawrence. She is the actress who played Katniss in the Hunger Games franchise. I want to make a card for her to tell her how much I admire her and her movies.

I’d give my favourite actor Jace Norman something simple, personal, and heartfelt, like a handmade bracelet. I think it would be silly to buy him something he can already afford. I want the gift to be meaningful and something that will make him remember me. I’d also write him a letter that  would make him feel loved and supported.

My celebrity idol is Singaporean singer JJ Lin. I would  give him a scarf to keep him warm during winter. I  wouldn’t want him to get sick from the cold.

Top 10: Which Disney villian would make the best roommate?

My idol is Araki Hirohiko.  He is a Japanese manga artist who created Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure. I’d give him a pencil, which I hope he’d use to create more funny comics.  I love his work and I hope my gift would help him.

I’d give a personalised T-shirt to LeBron James, who is a famous basketball player. I would draw a cartoon picture of LeBron and me together and print it on the shirt. It would be so cool to see him wear it on the court.

Anson Suen Cheuk-nam, 12,  Scientia Secondary School

I’d like to give a bouquet of flowers to Luka Doncic. Luka is an NBA player and is quickly becoming a big star. He did really well in his latest game. I want to give him flowers to encourage him to keep working hard.

Top 10: Which area in Hong Kong would you like to live in?

My celebrity idol is Jung Kook from BTS. I would give him a gift set of high-quality Korean beef. Being a K-pop idol, I’m sure, is very tiring. He needs food to give him the energy to perform around the world and be energetic for his fans. I want him to know that I support him and remind him to take care of his health.

Chung Yan-tung, 16, Fanling Rhenish Church Secondary School

I’d give my idol Lionel Messi a small Christmas tree, and I’d decorate it with a bunch of mini footballs because he is a famous footballer. I think he would like it very much. I’d also hang little replicas of the medals he’s won in the past on the tree to remind him of his great achievements.
