A long-distance relationship is something many couples avoid, however, due to the pandemic, many were forced to self-isolate separately. Being in such a relationship can be hard, especially for new couples who still have to learn a lot about one another.
Since the holidays are nearly here, it’s time to think about a lovely present for your partner. If you’re in a long-distance relationship, then doing the shopping together isn’t an option. However, that shouldn’t deter you from buying them something nice they’ll definitely enjoy. For that reason, here are some gift suggestions that your partner will love.
1. A comfy and snuggle blanket or a pillow
The holiday period is the time when we all love snuggling under a blanket while drinking a mug of warm cocoa, or maybe even mulled wine. So, a comfy fleece blanket or a soft pillow might be the perfect gift for your partner that is far away. That way, they’ll have something cozy that will remind them of your relationship, even if you’re not physically together. In case your partner loves surprises, you can choose a present and send it directly to their home, so they can be properly surprised when they open the package.
2. Something interesting for them to read
Books are an amazing present, and if your partner enjoys reading, then you should look no further. Still, before you choose a book, make sure to learn about their reading habits and preferences. For example, if your partner enjoys thrillers, giving them a non-fiction book might not be the best idea. Unless they specifically asked for a certain book title, it’s best to find something they generally enjoy. If they have an active Goodreads account, you can check out their want-to-read list and choose something they’ll enjoy.
3. A printed poster, that they can hang in their home
Posters are often associated with teenage bedrooms, however, if chosen correctly, they can also act as nice wall decor. If your partner is an avid fan of something (let’s say, Harry Potter), you can make them a themed poster that can be framed and hung anywhere in their home. Choosing this type of gift is a really sweet gesture, mainly if your partner just moved to a new apartment and needs to decorate it.
4. A cute mug, to remind them of you
Mugs are nice and comforting. You always need a mug, even if you have too many of them. If you and your partner enjoy drinking coffee together (even virtually), gifting them a cute mug is a nice way to show them that you care. You can also opt to add a sweet quote on a mug, and if you decide to do that, make sure to choose a quote that directly describes your relationship. Going with something funny only you two understand can be a fun way to reaffirm your commitment to each other, for sure.
5. Something naughty to spice things up
Dating long-distance can be amusing and challenging, often at the same time. You’re probably aware of the fact that long-distance relationship sex life is vastly different from the sex in a regular relationship. Sending naughty pics and texts is great, but visiting an online adult shop such as Wild Secrets and choosing something sexy, can surely spice things up. Plus, experimenting with sex can take your relationships to a whole new level, plus you’ll feel less lonely and more connected regardless of where you both are.
6. Aromatic candles that smell like home
Aromatic candles are popular for a reason: they can be used as elegant decor pieces, plus they enrich the space with their pleasant scent. Plus, these candles are extremely soothing, which can definitely be helpful in these unprecedented times. There are a lot of scented candles on the market, so if you can’t make your pick, feel free to ask your partner about their favorite scent, so you’ll know what to get them.
Being in a long-distance relationship doesn’t have to be hard, but it still requires honesty and patience. Gift-giving is a wonderful way to keep your relationship strong, and these gift ideas will be perfect for this holiday season because your partner will feel loved, seen and appreciated.
