Excellent Gift Ideas to Keep Your Long-Distance Relationship Going Strong
Long-Distance Touch Bracelets
These cool gadgets allow you to subtly alert your other half you are thinking about them in real-time. Pick up a pair of touch bracelets that you both wear, and when you touch your bracelet, they will feel it! No matter how far away they are, a single touch will send vibrations and colors that light up on their bracelet. It’s a quick, subtle, and wonderful way to keep close to your beau even when you’re far apart.
Personalized Coffee Mugs
If both you and your mate enjoy a cup of joe or hot tea in the morning, make it a moment to bond with each other by drinking out of customized coffee mugs. The cups could have pictures of both of you on them, heartfelt messages, or part of a set where one completes the other. There are plenty of sites out there with a large variety of “couple” coffee mugs so you can find the perfect ones for you and your love.
You can never go wrong with sending roses. After all, the rose is THE symbol of love. It is also the most beloved flower in the world and there are plenty of reasons why everyone loves it, and why countless authors and poets have written about it. Red roses, of course, express passion, deep love, and romance and are popular around Valentine’s Day, but you don’t need a holiday to send roses. Nor do they always have to be red. Roses come in a variety of beautiful colors, like our Vintage Rose bouquet, and mixing it up by sending your love roses in her favorite color or with other flowers she admires is a great heartfelt gift that will make her swoon…every time.
“Hug Me” Pillow
Sometimes the hardest part of being in an LDR is not having your partner there to hold on to and hug at night. Something that helps to ease the pain is a Hug This Until You Can Hug Me pillow. Just having something soft and comfortable to hug while thinking of you helps the days go faster until you are together again.
“Open When” Letters
Create personalized letters for a set of different occasions for your love to open when needed. For example, you can write a note and title it “Open when sad, Open when lonely, Open when you need a hug, Open when you need a laugh,” etc. Reading your encouraging words puts you there in spirit and reinforces the special bond between you.
The perfect type of long-distance relationship gift is one that comes from the heart and is something your partner will enjoy. Besides the above, personalized jewelry, photo books, and living plants are also great gift ideas. The important thing is to send gifts regularly to show how much you care about them. And, when in doubt, you can never, ever, go wrong with seasonal fresh flowers. It’s easy to order and will always be appreciated and loved by the recipient.
