We are all known to have a particular celebrity crush or idol, for whom we would give anything to spend a day with. Now imagine if this person showed up at your doorstep to deliver the one thing you've been dreaming of all year. Sounds quite magical doesn't it?
Here are the celebrities the Young Post team would like to recieve gifts from this year.
An acoustic guitar and a tall, Irish singer
Damien Rice please! I’d like him to serenade me with his song, Cheers Darlin’, and I will pretend that I am that girl that he was crying over.
Nicola Chan, Reporter
Cats, make-up, and more cats
A marmalade loving bear
Paddington. I don't know what he'll bring me, surprise me! But I'll need a fuzzy hug before I feed him a marmalade sandwich.
Young Wang, Senior Reporter
For the football fanatic
Thierry Henry. He can bring me some signed football shirts, footballs and an Arsenal history book. We can enjoy all of this over some fish stew because Henry is originally from the French Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique. He could also tell me his experience being recently crowned Igwe – a Nigerian King. Although we already knew he was the King (of Highbury) long ago during his playing days!
Sebastien Raybaud, Reporter
A romantic date and a musical, please
I'll take John Cho, please, and his Christmas present for me would be him.
Why settle for one? Have an entire ensemble!
Lin-Manuel Miranda bringing the entire original cast of Hamilton with him to perform the whole show for me, over and over again.
Nicole Moraleda, Sub editor
Carpool Karaoke and a First Lady
I'd say Michelle Obama, with armfuls of brilliant books including first editions of Jane Austen's canon (obviously not including Mansfield Park) and a signed, dedicated copy of her husband's The Audacity of Hope, but I'd just cry and cry with too much joy.
SO maybe I'd pick James Corden, who shares my love of musical theatre AND 90s music, bringing loads of 90s boy band backing tracks, a karaoke machine, Lin-Manuel Miranda and the Backstreet Boys (of course) for an epic mic session.
Karly Cox, Deputy Editor
Masterchef in the making
Books and good conversation
Okay let me nerd this up a notch. Terry Pratchett. Yes, I know he's dead but what does dead really mean? I'm sure he'll deliver an amazing bagful of Hogswatch goodies and be the most entertaining guest. He'd be full of outrageous ideas and I could quiz him about who really thinks up Vetenari's plots.
Susan Ramsay, Editor
For the philantropist
I would have Bill Gates deliver me a cheque for US$1 billion, which I would use to help hungry children and the homeless. I would be the most generous wealthy man there ever was.
Ben Young, Sub-editor
A very Star Wars proposal
I would like Rey (Daisy Ridley from Star Wars: The Last Jedi) to bring me a live porg. And a working lightsaber. And ask me to marry her. To which I'd answer yes. A thousand times yes.
Jamie Lam, Sub-editor
An aeroplane all to myself
Richard Branson, because he's bound to have a spare plane lying around somewhere. Then he can pick me up and fly me home to spend Christmas with my family (and I can be reunited with the love of my life - my cat).
Who run the world? Girls (and puppies)
I'd like Beyonce to show up at my doorstep and bring me a basket-full of puppies. Then she'd make me honororary god-mother to all her children, and we'd have a dance-off to Crazy In Love.
Rhea Mogul, Reporter
A comedian to present my life
Stephen Fry: I’m a huge fan of Stephen Fry and TV shows like A Bit of Fry, Laurie and QI, so I would be thrilled if he would deliver my Christmas present. I don’t really care what I get. But it would be interesting if he could narrate my life for a day.
