Gifts For Long Distance Relationships


Today we are going to discuss gifts for long distance relationships. When you are in a long distance relationship, one of the things you will get frustrated about, is the fact that you can not buy your girlfriend a bouquet of flowers and swing by her house and surprise her. And the same goes for the woman, you can not buy him a small gift and swing by his house and put a smile on his face.

But today I am going to share with you some ideas that worked very well for my husband and I when we were in a long distance relationship. So Let’s get started, the first thing you need to consider is the shipping of the gift that you want to send.

 Choose A Small Package When You Can

My husband sent me a pair of earrings and they were so small he just put them in the letter that he sent me, this means he did not pay for shipping because it was just a letter if you send small gifts you can just put them in an envelope and it won’t cost much.

I also sent my husband a t-shirt and I folded it tightly and put in an envelope and it did not cost me much for shipping, the best place to find sentimental gifts that you can send to your loved one is, of course, the internet, there are all kinds of things like a pillow cover that you can send the message you want to be put on the pillow cover and they will do it for you, For example you could tell them to put on the pillow, ”You will feel my presence when you hug this pillow”

OK, maybe that is not very creative, lol make up your own, Or maybe you would rather send them a spoon or a mug that has your picture on it, the options are endless

Another Gift Idea Is creating the Gift Yourself

If you are creative, you can make the gift yourself and then mail it, my husband made me a very beautiful bracelet using some beads and a string, it was the most beautiful thing ever, The fact that he put so much time and effort into it made it special and when I got it I just couldn’t hold back the tears, it was so beautiful.

I know there some ladies who know how to knit so why not knit something for your guy, just something like a scarf, I am sure he will be very happy to wear something that you have made yourself and have added personal touch spray it with your perfume so he can smell you when he wears it, I bet he will never wash it until you are finally together lol

OK, if you are not a needle and yan kind of girl, then surely you can find something to send him something that has a personal touch to it, but do not and I repeat do not send any worn underwear that’s just nasty 🙂 I swear I am not joking I know a girl who mailed underwear to Germany, and that is just crazy.

Planting Flowers Together?

Because you are not able to send flowers to each other, although there are many flower companies like that makes it easy to send fresh flowers to many countries but they only have 4 African counties in their list Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, and South Africa, so if your partner is in other parts of Africa, you will not be able to send flowers to them.

They do cover most parts of Asia like India, Philipines, Pakistan, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam among others, most of Europe and North and South America are covered. So if your partner is from those parts of the world then you can probably send them fresh flowers. But I think it has to be a very special occasion to send fresh flowers internationally it’s not gonna be cheap.

So the alternative could be, planting flowers together, go to the garden center with your phone connected to the internet and point to the flowers and let your partner choose one for you and you do the same for them too and you go and grow your own flowers. I think this is a brilliant idea. But what if you don’t have a garden? well, then choose a pot plant that can do well in a pot.

Long Distance Touch Lamps

These lamps use WiFi to communicate, so no matter how far apart you are in the world, if one partner touches their light, it will activate the second light and let your loved one know that you are thinking of them, I think this is a brilliant idea and unfortunately my husband and I didn’t find something like this when we were apart and miserable, it would have made things easier for us.

These lights can also be used by a family member who is apart for whatever reason or even friends when you miss someone you just touch the lamp and they will know that you are thinking of them Think this is genius.

For a couple who are in a long distance relationship, one person could purchase two lamps and then send one lamp to the partner, and then they will have one more way to let each other know that they are thinking and missing them rather than text, the gesture of the touching the lamp and igniting the other lamp maybe across the globe is awesome.


being in a long distance relationship is no joke, it can get very rough sometimes, but if you find a way to let the other person know that they are on your mind, will make things easier as you work toward being reunited, I have shared with you some gift ideas that I think will help you ease the pain of distance.

I hope you have found this article helpful and I hope you will share it with your loved one so you can see which idea you love best. Thank you so much for reading and I would love to hear your views on this topic so please leave me a comment below.
