Things to Consider When Looking For Long Distance Relationship Gifts
When purchasing gifts for your long distance love, there are a few things you should think about. First and foremost, you need to think about your person – more specifically whether the gift fits their interests and personality. If they like practical gifts, buy something useful. If they like sentimental items, buy accordingly!
Another thing to consider when buying gifts is your budget. Not knowing how much you want to spend can actually make the decision process so much harder. So, set a budget and stick to it – this way you will not even look at gifts that fall outside of it!
One of the most important factors if you are sending gifts long distance is whether or not the gift will survive the mail/postal service! If you send a breakable mug, make sure that it is wrapped well so it can take a few bounces, for example.
DIY Long Distance Relationship Gifts
A DIY or Do It Yourself gift is always a great idea because often these kinds of gifts have the most meaning for your person. There are lots of great ideas for DIY gifts that you send long distance so check these out below!
Love messages are a simple way to send a meaningful gift to someone that you can’t be with physically. This gift can take many forms.
You might choose to send a bunch of little messages with certain dates that they need to be opened on, or you can send mini-messages that are more “situational” and to be opened when your person is feeling sad, happy, it’s raining out, etc. Be creative and speak from the heart – and you won’t go wrong!
Photo Album With Your Pictures
If visuals are more your thing, then why not send along a photo album that you filled yourself? These days, physical photos are hard to come by so the act of printing them out and having them to actually hold and look at (compared to on a phone) is extra special.
Of course, the size of the album will dictate the price to send it in the mail but that’s for you to figure out and determine if it’s a good gift for you and your person.
DIY Care Package
Care packages are also a good idea because you can fill them with whatever your person likes and send it along! From their favorite foods or snacks to little memories and messages, the things to put in a care package are endless.
Collection Of Songs
Music is another great way to express your love and feelings for someone – so why not send along some song ideas? You can be creative – like mail a list of songs with dates to listen to them on.
You can even write down the significance of the song and a little extra messaging so that your person feels the connection when they listen to it!
Lastly, a memory jar is a good way to send along a bunch of fun and meaningful memories for your person to have/look at whenever they feel sad or lonely without you.
The best part is that you can fill it with whatever is meaningful to you – a receipt from your first date, a ticket stub, a stone from the beach you both love, etc. Be creative!
For this, you might need a mason jar – and be sure to wrap it safely if you mail it!
