Maintaining a long-distance relationship can be challenging, but it’s important to stay connected with your partner no matter the distance. One way to do this is by sending gifts that show your love and appreciation for your partner. Here are 30 long-distance relationship gift ideas to help you stay connected.

The facts really do bear out that long-distance relationships take a great deal of effort, and it may very well be a little harder to remind your accomplice that they’re always at the forefront of your thoughts when they’re not too close to you. Signs mean a lot or a little to the world, and nothing says you care more than sending an unexpected surprise to tell them they’re the main person for you, regardless of distance.

Plus, it’s never too early to start on a gift for these special seasons or your partner’s next birthday. Regardless of whether you can’t be together at these extraordinary events, you can still anticipate the appearance of joy (via video chat) when they open what you have in store for them. Also, in case you can’t really be together, the right gift can bring you both closer, honestly.
