If you’ve never been in a long-distance relationship, you probably wouldn’t understand the frustrations and strains that constantly being apart can cause. While some couples manage long-distance relationships better than others, it is always a good idea to send your loved one gifts to remind them of how you feel. If you haven’t seen your partner for a few months and you’re not yet halfway through the period of separation, here are a few great gift ideas to maintain the relationship, despite being in different locations.
Say it with Flowers
Let’s face it, flowers really are the perfect way to say, “I miss you and can’t wait to see you again”, and with a bouquet of roses mixed with carnations and a touch of greenery, you have the perfect gift. If your sweetheart is living in Mexico right now, you can search online for flower delivery in Mexico and in a few minutes, the order can be placed. Regardless of where your sweetheart happens to be in the world, a global florist network will deliver a freshly prepared floral arrangement as per order. You can spend some time browsing the many floral arrangements on offer and when you find what you’re looking for, the process of ordering and supplying the required information only takes a few minutes. If, for example, you know what time she leaves her home in the morning, you could arrange for the flowers to be delivered just prior to that, which would really make her day.
Nothing bonds a couple together like jewellery, and whether you send her a charm for her bracelet or a necklace with a heart pendant, she will always want to wear this next to her skin as you are the one who gave it to her. Have the package sent by FedEx or DHL, to be absolutely sure it arrives safely, and accompany the gift with a very special card and the next time you video call, she will be wearing the gift. You could also commission two halves of a heart and send one to her, while you wear the other half on a thin necklace which is super-romantic.
A New Tablet
If you invest in an iPad and send it to her, then you’ll be able to enjoys hours of free video calling, even making it a daily thing just before sleep. It is likely there will be time differences, so one of you will have to compromise, and while it does feel strange when you’ve just got up and your partner is about to sleep, it is still essential contact. If her birthday or an anniversary is approaching, a digital device is very functional. She could use it for her work also. It is something she uses every day and when she does, she will remember who it was that gave her the device, cementing you in her thoughts.
There are many ways that you can strengthen a long-distance relationship, and all of the above are great gift ideas, and whatever you choose, send her some flowers as well, for that real romantic touch.
