They say that distance makes the heart grow fonder, which may be true, but long-distance can still be challenging. There are hundreds of fantastic gift ideas to send to your loved one that can remind them how important they are to you.
Whether they have a birthday coming up, an anniversary or you just want to send them a little something, check out some of our favorite gifts for long-distance couples.
Filimin Friendship Lamp
This gift is not only an adorable way to feel connected to your partner despite the miles between you, but it has some practical uses too! The friendship lamp is powered by Wi-Fi, and when you touch the lamp, it will light up with your color and vice versa.
When you touch them at the same time, it lights up a new color. The best part? When you order, you can set it up so that one light goes to you and the other to your partner.
Lucky Feather Couple Bracelets
Are you looking for something you can take with you wherever you go? These bracelets are the perfect gift.
The set includes one black bracelet and one white. Each bracelet has one bead in the color of the opposite bracelet, signifying that your partner is always with you.
I Miss You Fill In The Blanks Book
We love this gift idea because you can completely personalize it. The book offers fill-in-the-blanks for various reasons you miss your significant other.
If you need a way to make your partner smile, laugh, or cry (in a good way), then this is the gift. They can read it over and over again whenever they’re missing you a little extra.
Long-Distance Touch Bracelets
One of the hardest parts of living far away from your favorite person is not feeling their touch as often as you want. These touch bracelets mimic the touch of your partner no matter where they are in the world.
Hug This Pillow Until You Can Hug Me
Do you miss cuddling with your partner? This pillow is an adorable gift, so your favorite person has something to hug until they can hug you again.
It can’t replace the feeling of a hug from your partner, but it is a sweet reminder that you’re thinking about them.
These lamps give you a subtle way to remind your partner you’re thinking of them. Your lamp lights up when your partner touches it and vice versa.
We like these lamps because the purpose is simple, and they’ll match almost any person’s home aesthetic.
I Love You More Than The Miles Key Chain
If you’re getting ready to go long-distance with your partner or are just looking for a cute gift, this key chain is perfect. They’ll be able to read the messages whenever they want.
In a long-distance relationship, you’re always waiting for the day you’ll see your partner in person again. This keychain is a great way to remind your partner how much you love them and that you’ll see each other again soon.
This Cute Picture Frame
When you can’t see your partner, the perfect anniversary or holiday gift is to give them a picture frame with your favorite picture of you two!
This frame showcases your picture and reminds your partner that you love them, despite the distance.
We Found Each Other Puzzle
This is one of our favorite gifts for long-distance couples because it’s unique and specialized to your relationship. You’ll never forget where you met the love of your life and neither will they!
All you have to do is put in the address of where you met your person, and the creator will make a puzzle of a bird’s eye view of that area for them to put together.
The Story of Us Book
Your love story is your favorite love story! This book has various prompts for you or your partner to fill out so you can read your story over and over again.
You can order it and fill it out to send to your partner, or order it for them to fill out themselves. We think a great idea would be for each of you to fill one out and then send it to each other, so you can see your story from your partner’s eyes.
Tree Carving Art
Have you ever wanted to be the main character in a romance movie, carving you and your lover’s initials into a tree? Now you can without carving into a real tree.
This gift is a wood carving of a tree with you and your partner’s initials and your anniversary date. You can choose any date of significance to your relationship, not just your anniversary.
Spinning Heart Messenger
This may be one of our favorite gift ideas ever. Think of those love notes you would pass in school, but the modern-day version.
When you send this gift to your boyfriend or girlfriend, you can personalize notes via your phone that will show up in their box. When you’ve sent them a new message, the heart spins, and when they open the box, your message appears on the screen.
Love Knows No Distance Art
If you’re looking for a gift that your significant other can hang in their home or office, this personalized wall art is a unique idea. The framed art depicts the locations you and your partner live and all the miles between you.
You can even have it customized to show that you’re both working towards a “happily ever after” when you guys live in the same city. I’m not crying; you’re crying.
Do you and your long-distance partner live states away? These coasters are a practical and sweet gift for them.
The coasters show you and your partner’s state with little hearts in them, with a tiny string connecting the hearts.
Friends Are Like Stars Travel Mirror
We love this gift because this compact mirror is something they can take with them anywhere. It’s a gorgeous color and has a sweet message on the front to remind them you’re always there for them.
Two Way Radios
Remember when you were a kid and wanted walkie-talkies to talk to your friends? Getting you and your loved one two-way radios to communicate is a fun way to keep the distance from getting you down.
Of course, you can always pick up your phone and call them, but this gift can bring a little excitement and childish fun to your relationship.
Missing You Wallet Insert
No one leaves the house without their wallet, well, usually. This adorable wallet insert makes the perfect gift that your partner can carry with them at all times.
Whenever they’re missing you a little extra, they can read the message reminding them about how strong your love is. If you want to make this gift even more special, print off a wallet-sized picture of you two they can keep with the insert.
State-to-State Wall Art
Another great gift for your partner if you’re about to start long-distance is this state-to-state wall art. You can buy this for them anytime, though, not just when you’re about to begin living miles apart.
You can choose how big or small you want the art to be and customize it to fit which states you’re both in.
I Love You Wood Key Chain
We love this key chain because it’s different from typical key chains. The keychain is wood and is engraved with a special saying.
The background shows the world and reminds your partner that you’ll always love them more than the miles between you two.
Guide To My Heart Compass
We know there’s a compass app on your phone, but this gorgeous gold compass is another one of many excellent gifts for long-distance couples. You can 100% personalize the compass with sayings and even your handwriting!
Who doesn’t love a good candle? We love these candles as a gift because you can choose everything from their jars to their scent.
Our favorite part is that you can choose a scent that reminds you of your partner or one that, when they burn, will remind them of you! Sense of smell is the strongest sense linked to memory, after all.
Love Messages in a Capsule
Sometimes long-distance can get you down. When this happens, all you want to know is that your partner’s thinking of you.
This cute gift is a faux prescription bottle with love messages encased in a pill capsule. The instructions say to read one a day as needed; how adorable!
What’s one of the main things long-distance couples do? Countdown the days until you get to see your person again!
We love this gift idea because your partner can set it anywhere in their home to see exactly how long until they get to hold you again.
