Happy almost-Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re single or taken, The Frisky wants to be your Valentine. Look for a contest each day leading up to Feb. 14. Prizes will include makeup, books, lingerie, jewelry, and more, but each one only lasts a day—enter now!

When it comes to making Valentine’s Day something special, there are certain basic musts: chocolate, flowers, and, of course, underwear so sexy it’ll make him wonder why V-Day doesn’t come more often. For everything underthings, turn to Bare Necessities, the online lingerie shop that carries some of our favorite basic Calvin Klein bras, classic Cosabella thongs, and tons of sleepwear, but also brings the best in completely romantic get-ups. Try a lacy cutout teddy by Blush, coquettish garter belts by Jezebel, or some cheeky embroidered-bum panties. Of course, you’re not obligated to spend your winnings on something that’s really meant for him, and you could, for example, stock up on some Spanx. [Bare Necessities]

UPDATE!The winner of the Bare Necessities gift card is wikid for this comment:

When shopping for lingerie the most important rule I follow is this: Does it turn me on to think about wearing it? This encompasses a few things: is it comfortable? Is it flattering? Do I feel sexy in it? Will my partner like it? But most of all it should reflect your desires and fantasies. Ultimately, lingerie is a way to escape to Sexyville and if it doesn’t have the gas to get you there, then you and your partner are both going to be stranded.

Thanks for all your lingerie-buying tips!
