Go early doors to Covent Garden Flower Market and fill the house with flowers. Katy Young, Deputy health & beauty editor

I know it sounds girly, but I’d really love a pet; something really cute like a kitten. Katie Baron, Fashion production & bookings editor

Like that feeling when you first met, it’s lovely to think that you can still overwhelm your other half, or be overwhelmed by them – so if you’re going to do something, make sure it’s original, and do it to excess. If you’re buying flowers, buy lots of them. If you’re going for long-stem roses, go for anything but red. And if you’re getting chocolates, go to Godiva, choose their biggest box and completely fill it with hearts. Newby Hands, Associate editor/health & beauty director

A private box, close to the stage at the English National Ballet for an indulgent 19th century experience - with champagne and canapés for during the performance. I’d end the evening at J Sheekey Oyster Bar for delicious zinc-filled helpings of oysters. Stephanie Theobold

I would opt for something completely traditional yet ultimately romantic, such as a trip to Paris. My ideal stay would always be at the George V in Paris as I love its traditional/classic luxury. Connie Woodhouse, Managing editor
