“Open When” Letters

Write a stack of letters that are only to be opened by your partner only during certain occasions, like when they are feeling lonely, need a hug, need advice, a laugh, or a boost of confidence. Then, when your encouraging words are needed, they are right there in the envelope. It’s a great way to be there in spirit when you can’t be there physically.

Coordinates Bracelets

Keep each close at all times by wearing coordinates bracelets. These charming bracelets have your and your sweetheart’s physical location engraved as unique coordinates into the bracelets. Then, when each of you wears the other one’s coordinates, it makes them feel just a little less far away.

Speaking of cute critters, if you and your beau share a pet together, chances are they are going to miss Mr. Fluffball a great deal as well when they have to leave. To keep the bond with their pet strong too, pick up a Furbo Pet Camera so they can interact with Mr. Fiddles. This device allows your partner to call out to, toss treats to, and watch how Mr. Bojangles spent his day.

Giving the gift of a live plant may not be considered romantic at first, but it really is. Think of the plant as a metaphor for your relationship… as your partner takes care of the plant, waters and feeds it, and nourishes it so it can thrive, so too do the same with your relationship. Plus, plants have a ton of great health-boosting benefits. They purify the air, freshen up any space, and improve moods. Plus, plants live a long time when properly taken care of so it can grow with you and your loved one as your relationship grows.

When selecting a gift to send to your long-distance paramour, just remember it should come from the heart and should be something that they will like. Also, the gifts should be sent regularly to keep the bond strong, and when you need a gift idea, just remember flowers. You can never go wrong with flowers. Everybody loves receiving a bouquet of fresh seasonal flowers, regardless of age, sex, political party….lol. Flowers are always the perfect gift – and it’s a gift that never gets old.
