As tomorrow is Valentine's Day, we asked readers to tell us their most romantic ideas for celebrating. Here are the best answers …

1. Writing this Top 10 response so that everyone knows how much I love my girlfriend.

Adam Lee, 15, Law Ting Pong Secondary School

2. Get rid of it and make every day Valentine's Day. There's no reason why you should celebrate your loved ones only once every 365 days.

Cynthia Huang, 15, Chinese International School

3. Say "I love you" in 10 different languages. You get used to hearing "I love you" in English all the time, but hearing "Je t'aime" or "Te amo" on this special day will definitely make your S.O. feel special and loved. And by remembering all the pronunciations in different languages, you'll seem even more romantic and sincere because you've made such an effort to say how you feel.

Regina Cheng, 16, Cheung Chuk Shan College

4. As I'm just a student, an expensive gift will be out of the question. So instead, I'll make one by myself. I'll make 365 stars using strips of coloured paper, on each of which I've handwritten something special about her, and put them in a pretty jar. My plan is that she unfolds one star each day until next Valentine's Day, so she'll feel loved not just on one day, but every day.

Hewitt Tsui, 14, Law Ting Pong Secondary School

5. There are always loads of couples celebrating in restaurants on Valentine's Day, so dining out is not a wise choice. I prefer to celebrate this special occasion at home; I plan to decorate the dining room, prepare my date's favourite food and play the romantic movie Titanic. This will definitely create a "just the two of us" atmosphere.

Andy Yiu, 16, Law Ting Pong Secondary School

6. Give me my bed, a TV, The Notebook, fluffy blankets and the one and only Joe Sugg, and BAM!, you have the most romantic date, period. I believe everyone should have the opportunity to experience this on Valentine's day. Especially me. Joe, if you're reading this …

Christy Cheung, 15, St Paul's Co-educational College

7. Spend it revising in a study room with your crush! It's exam period now, and cramming with your valentine might just be the best thing for your future together.

Sebastian Wong, 16, Po Leung Kuk Vicwood K.T. Chong Sixth Form College

8. Instead of celebrating it lavishly, I'd prefer to celebrate it in an environmentally-friendly way. Every day at school we create an ocean of waste paper, so why not reuse it to make thousands of paper stars? Your loved ones will appreciate your effort, plus you'll also prove your love to Mother Nature.

Asha Limbu, 16, St Margaret's Girls' College

9. I'll keep it classy and prepare three classic surprises. First, I'll leave a sweet note on my valentine's desk, telling her to meet me at her favourite restaurant. She will find me there, singing a classic love song. As expressing my sincere love through a song will appear to be the climax of the night, she'll never expect the big bouquet of roses that will be brought to her when we finish dinner. This might seem old-fashioned, but I believe that the old ways always work!

Bear Hung, 17, Law Ting Pong Secondary School

10. It doesn't matter to me how I will be spending my Valentine's Day; it only matters who I will be spending it with. Whether it's eating take-out on the couch or eating in a fancy candlelit dinner, as long as I am with that special someone, I'll be satisfied.

Mercado Hazel Katreena, 16, St Margaret's Girls' College
