Relationships are hard work and it is important to make one’s significant other feel loved and appreciated often. Meaningful gifts have a way of strengthening the bond you share with your partner. Long distance relationships are a whole different ball game. The distance could work in your favor and make you emotionally close or end up making you feel lonely.
Stay connected despite the distance
People in long distance relationships can schedule phone/video calls so that they stay emotionally connected no matter how busy they are. Make a pledge to stick to the schedule. It is a sign that you are committed towards the relationship. On weekends you can indulge in activities together that don’t require you both to be in the same place.
You can try catching up a movie on streaming platforms and keep texting each other along the way or playing online games. Insecurity plays havoc in any relationship. Let your partner spend time with other new friends. This wouldn’t make you grow apart. Instead it would give you new stuff to talk about during your calls. Send them gifts on special days.

Regardless of where you are, you can touch your bracelet’s display and instantly your partner will feel their bracelet vibrate and light up with a color of their choice.

The lack of physical intimacy is a huge bummer in long distance relationships. Everyone knows the healing powers of hugs and touch. It is painful knowing that your partner is having a bad day and you can’t hold them. Send them a pillow with cheesy typography so that they can hold on to it until they meet you.
Touch lamps are a great way to let your partner know you miss them. Once both of you connect your lamp to the WiFi and one of you touches it, the other person’s lamp would respond to the touch and light-up. These couple lamps help to light up any bad day and helps you stay connected despite the physical distance.
Comforters are one step above to pillows. They aid you on lonely days and nights. Wrapping yourself with a cozy comforter simulates the feeling of being hugged. You can also customize it with your pictures. This helps your partner ease into sleep easily on nights when you are busy working.
Engraved promise ring
Carry memories of your relationship wherever you go. Engraved couple rings with your favorite quote, date or initials and give them to your partner. The ring is a sign of serious commitment and is like a shout-out that despite the distance you are committed to one another.
One doesn’t ever get a photo book. Put together a photo book with cute pictures of the moments you shared and your partner is guaranteed to flip through those pages often and reminisce about the good moments.
Is your loved one having a bad day at work? Send them a care package with their favorite treats like cookies, chocolate, bath bomb, T-shirts and any supplies that interest them. Make your partner feel pampered and remind them they aren’t alone.
‘Open when’ letters
‘Open when’ letters consist of a series of letters that contain instructions on when each one should be opened – open when you first unpack, on your birthday, open when you miss me, open when you need a massage when we have an argument when you need a cuddle, you need a pep talk, etc. The handwritten notes are enough to add more spark to your relationship.
A desk mug with a cheesy or motivating quote coupled with your pictures makes a great gift. Every time you pick her/ his mug for coffee, they are going to be thinking about you. They’d start their day with a wide smile.
Something as simple as a selfie stick can work in keeping your relationship fun. If you both love sending pictures to each other, a selfie stick would come in handy. Click pictures when you are on the go and surprise your partner all through the day.
Go all vintage for once with telegrams. In an era of instant messengers, sending telegrams has its own essence. Send love notes via telegram and remind your partner how much they mean to you.
Dual zone watch
The time difference between both can be quite confusing. Eliminate confusion by getting them a dual zone watch that displays time of both time zones. This super-practical gift reminds you of your partner every time they glance at the watch.
Bouquet of roses
The power of roses needs no introduction. Romance and flowers go hand in hand. When your partner is having a difficult day, arrange for a same-day bouquet delivery at their doorstep with a personalized message to cheer them up.
If your partner loves public gestures, consider sending colorful balloons to their workplace or home expressing your love.
Don’t let distance hamper your relationship. Shower your bae with gifts and grow emotionally stronger together.
