"Since he can't read your mind, let your partner know exactly what gift would make your heart sing. Just send him a website link. You both win: You'll be thrilled and he gets the applause." —Alanis Morissette
"Cook for him. Preparing a special meal is like foreplay, and feeding someone is an act of love. Even better, cook together." —Gail Simmons, judge on Top Chef: Just Desserts and author of Talking With My Mouth Full
"If you're single, watch a movie like Dirty Dancing or Sleepless in Seattle and drink plenty of red wine. If you're in a relationship, don't expect the most romantic night of your life. When he does something really sweet, you'll appreciate it more." —Amy Lee, lead singer of Evanescence

"Make someone's day by sending an anonymous Valentine. Mail it to a friend, cousin, or neighbor — anyone who could use a little love, which is most everyone!" —Melissa Bank, author of The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing
