Though being in a long-distance relationship (LDR) is hard, the reward at the finish line is eventually being together forever. Keep the love strong during those times when you’re apart by sending thoughtful, bond-strengthening gifts that will keep you close even when separated by distance. Here at People’s Flowers, the best florist in Albuquerque, we know a thing or two about romance and love, so take a look at some LDR gifts we recommend to keep the embers burning.
Long-Distance Relationship Gifts You’ll Both Love
Bouquet of Roses
These are a classic for a reason – they work! Roses have long been considered the premier flower to express love, passion, and romance. In fact, roses symbolize love. Other colors also have other meanings, but red is for love. There isn’t anyone in the world who doesn’t’ love getting romantic red roses. From simple yet elegant, like our Luxury Roses arrangement. A rose bouquet given as a romantic gift is a proven winner.
With services like Shutterfly, you can create your own hard-cover photo book with pictures from special moments of you and your other half, or document a trip you went on together. Once complete, you can send it to your faraway love and keep one for yourself. It’s a gift that is personal, unique, and demonstrates your love and thoughtfulness which will make a great impression.
Bond Touch Bracelets
Let your special someone know you’re thinking of them at the very moment you are with these cool touch bracelets. Just tap on your bracelet to send vibrations and light-up colors to your other half’s bracelet to let them know they are on your mind.
Furbo Dog Camera
If you and your long-distance partner share a pet, then it’s important to keep that bond strong too. With the Furbo Dog Camera, you or your far-away other half can watch over little Fluffy, interact with him by talking to him and tossing him treats, and seeing how he spent his day.
It’s a gift that keeps on giving. Plants provide excellent mood-boosting benefits as well as clean the air and freshen up any space. Send a plant to your LDR love and as they water and nourish it so it thrives, so too will your relationship. If your paramour has a black thumb, then choose easy to care for plants like a Bromeliad.
“Open When” Letters
A perfect sentiment straight from the heart, write up a batch of Open When letters and give them to your significant other to have when they need them the most. Common topics are Open When you are sad, lonely, need a laugh, missing me, and need a boost of confidence. Your words in their time of need will be loving and welcome.
As long as the gift is from the heart, you’ll help keep your loving bond strong across the distance. For additional ideas, or after you’ve sent all of the above gifts, keep in mind the power of flowers. A bouquet of fresh seasonal blooms sent every month or so will always be a huge hit!
