3 of the Best Gifts to Send in a Long Distance Relationship

If you are in a long distance relationship, it can be hard to show the other person how you feel. Gift giving is a gesture that helps people visibly show their affection. As one of the 5 love languages, this is a powerful tool to use and can help make your relationship stronger. Having this love language doesn’t mean that someone is materialistic; rather they are someone who appreciates a thoughtful gesture and kind effort.

Flowers

Flowers are a simple gift that convey so much. This old-fashioned gesture shows that there are still gentlemen out there that view women as ladies. Some people have more of a traditional view on dating so this old-fashioned gesture speaks volumes. If you are thinking about sending flowers, try to send your special someone their favorite kind. This will show your thoughtfulness and that you listen and value their preferences. When dating long distance, this amount of effort will show them that you really care. If you aren’t exactly sure what kind of flowers to send, roses are always a great option.

Make sure that you send a note attached to the flowers. Sure, you talk online and video chat all the time, but a handwritten note (even if it isn’t by you) will be very special. Write something that is meaningful – maybe from a past conversation or a funny joke that only the two of you share. Write something that they will want to keep; something that will make them think of you or something that will comfort them when they miss you. You want to make a good impression, so don’t be cheesy and of all importance, make sure all of the grammar is correct!

Jewelry

Buying jewelry for someone means choosing something specific that you know they will like. Jewelry is personal and buying it for someone should take thought. Look at the clothes that he or she wears, the colors they like, or even what the interior of her home is like to get a sense of the style that she would prefer. When buying jewelry, you can look into jewelry that is popular in his or her culture to show that you respect their background. 

If you aren’t exactly sure what to get, a great idea is to look at their birthday and buy something with their birthstone. This can also be a more casual jewelry gesture. Buying your special someone gold or silver may show more of a commitment. If you want to show that you are in the relationship for the long haul, a more expensive piece of jewelry will send the message.  

Something Practical

When it comes to love languages, acts of service can also be tied to gift giving. This means expressing love through “easing the burden of responsibilities”. If this is something they treasure, sending something practical can be a way of expressing your love towards them. Items such as toys, educational products for their children, or technology may be some things that can make their lives easier.

Sending a practical gift can be seen as an act of service because it helps lift a burden off of their life. If making their children happy through gifts takes some pressure off of them, they will be very appreciative of you. This will show that you are thoughtful and value what they need.
