This post was supposed to be ready last Monday, but life happens. I got sick and I was barely able to leave my bed. It was so upsetting! But anyway, I wanted to write this post because one of the things that are very difficult in a long-distance relationship is to find a gift that is meaningful, can be mailed and you know… show how much we appreciate our significant other. It doesn’t have to be big, and sometimes just the intention is enough. That’s why I made a list of the best gift ideas for long distance relationships.
I must add that I have made most of these gifts and let me tell you, I’m sure your boyfriend or girlfriend will love each of these.

The best thing about sending a postcard is that you can customize them and write romantic messages on them. I’ve been sending my boyfriend postcard for Christmas since we started dating and it’s a great idea for when you don’t have a lot of money, but you still want to be present for the holidays.
My favorite app for this is Ink Cards, the quality is great and the designs they have are super pretty.
2. Buy Online
This will always be the safest option. If you want to buy something and be delivered directly to the place your significant other lives. It’s easy, and you can always find a good gift for that person, from a mug to an elaborated basket full of their favorite candies.

This is another cute way to remember important dates. I did a similar one with my important dates. The date we met, the date of our first kiss and our anniversary. Great idea if you don’t want to forget the
I love this journal, it has funny questions and it’s a great way to get to know your partner in another way.
My personal favorite! It’s a DIY I made not long ago and it’s a cute present for someone who loves tea.

Just fill a box full of hearts and for a more romantic touch, put a message on each of it.
I love this idea for you get to be together. Make hearts and hide them somewhere your significant other will find them eventually.
