3 Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Long Distance Relationships

My husband and I have celebrated Valentine’s Day together every year since 2009. Even if he’s had to travel for a basketball game on the actual holiday, we’ve always done something to commemorate the day (even if it had to be the day before or day after). We’ve celebrated Valentine’s Day in 3 different countries, 3 different states, and 5 different cities, but this year, for the first time since we started dating, we will be spending the holiday apart. Even though my husband is in France and I’m in Atlanta, I want to make the day special for both of us and keep our tradition alive. To celebrate and show my husband that our love can withstand distance and time, I’m considering these 3 Valentine’s Day gift ideas that are perfect for couples like us who are in long distance relationships:

For the first time ever, my husband and I will be apart on the most romantic day of the year. These 3 Valentine's Day gift ideas are perfect for couples who are in long distance relationships but want to keep the romance alive.

If you’re looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your long distance love, these touch lamps are absolutely perfect. These lamps are in-sync no matter where they are in the world and if you turn on one, the other glows. If this isn’t a great way to ensure that you feel close no matter how far apart you are, I don’t know what is!

Jar of Messages

My husband made me something similar for our first wedding anniversary and I loved it so much I’m seriously considering stealing his idea and adding a little twist to it. A jar of messages is a great Valentine’s Day gift, whether you’re in a long distance relationship or not. If your situation is like ours and you’re counting down to your reunion, write one note per day so that your mate can visually see how time flies while enjoying the special treat.

This is kind of a gag gift, but it’s also something that would be put to good use, if you ask me! These pillows are shaped so that your sweetie can feel like he or she is lying in your arms even when you’re far apart. I know my husband will literally laugh out loud if I send him this, but I also know he’ll put it to good use, which makes it a great Valentine’s Day gift. If you can’t send yourself, why not send a stuffed stand in?

Which of these gifts will you be getting your long distance love for Valentine’s Day?
