Keeping a long-distance relationship alive isn’t always easy. However, if you ‘ve found your soulmate, you’ll do whatever it takes to make them happy. When you can’t do it in person, sending cute gifts is the best way to show your partner that you care. The following list contains small gifts to show how much you love and miss them. And more considerable gifts for certain occasions like Birthdays, Christmas, Valentine’s days, or your anniversary. To help you find something special, I have put together a list with the best romantic gifts for couples in a long-distance relationship. Show your darling that you care!
By the way, I intentionally didn’t divide them into “Gifts for Girlfriends” and “Gifts for Boyfriend” because, with a few exceptions, these gifts fit both sexes. I think it makes more sense to divide them into different purposes:
Gifts that create the Feeling of Closeness
The biggest obstacle of a long-distance relationship is the lack of proximity. However, thanks to modern technology, which has developed very rapidly in recent years, there are now some ways to feel closer. Twenty years ago you would have had to pay a fortune only to hear your partner’s voice if he was in another country. Now it’s possible to have unlimited and free romantic video-chats with your loved ones and feel like you’re in the same room.
This device was specially developed for video chats and is superior to laptops or mobile phones for this purpose. Not only the display but especially the camera, the microphone, and the speaker are of the highest quality. Have a crystal clear sound with a razor sharp picture. It’s not required that both partners have the echo because it can also communicate easily with other devices. This personal gift literally improves your connection.
In a long-distance relationship, especially women, miss the feeling of having a strong shoulder to lean on. If your girlfriend often mentions how she would like to fall asleep in your arms, then this cute gift is just right for her. The pillow is available in two versions. The first version is a fairly accurate replica of the male upper body. The second version surrounds the whole body and not only gives pregnant women the feeling of being protected. Additionally, spray these pillows with the scent of your perfume. Laying in them and having a video chat with you will provide three of her senses with the impression of falling asleep next to you.
No matter how far apart you are, these two lamps are always connected. Apart from the fact that they look super beautiful and their light creates a charming atmosphere, they also have a special function. When you think of your loved one, just touch the lamp and both will change their color. Often it is nice to have the certainty that the other one is thinking of you without starting a conversation every time. With the help of these long-distance lamps it is now possible to send a sign of affection faster and easier than any text message. A romantic gift that creates a lasting connection between you and looks fantastic on the desk or next to the bed.
Print anything with a photo of yourself or together as a couple! How about a pillow, cell phone case, mug or even a blanket reflecting your life-size faces? This unique gift will let you feel closer to your partner. If you are artistically gifted, you can also print artwork of yours on it. There are no limits to your creativity.

Gifts that make Traveling more enjoyable
People in a long-distance relationships have to spend a little more time traveling than others. The many hours spent on airplanes, airports or buses can be a bit exhausting. If you want your partner to be even more excited for the next trip to you, I have put together the best gifts for travelers.
Most neck pillows are either too soft or too thin. This luxury pillow is made of thick high-quality memory foam which supports the head perfectly. In addition, it has a hood that shields from the outside world and helps your partner to sleep deeply and arrive fit with you.
Watch movies and photos, play games, read ebooks or write notes. You can do all of this with a laptop, but there are some arguments why a tablet is better. The
battery lasts 4-5 times longer, it’s compact, you can even hold it with one hand, it doesn’t get hot and has no annoying cooler. It’s just much more practical when you’re out and about. If an iPad is too expensive for you, the Amazon Fire HD might be the perfect gift for your remote partner. It starts at just $50.
Your partner prefers to read rather than watch movies or play games? Then this gift is the ideal alternative to a tablet to keep your partner happy while travelling. Many say it’s more comfortable than a real book because of its font size adjustment and light weight. Not to mention that real books take up a lot of space in your luggage. In addition, you can take hundreds of books with you and have enough choice. The battery lasts super long and due to the adjusted lighting it is still very pleasant for the eyes even after several hours.
In a hurry, you often forget to recharge all your electronic devices before driving and end up with an empty mobile phone. In order to avoid this misery, this compact charger is able to charge your phone two to three times.

I had to share this beautiful bag with you. It does not only look great but it has a lot of room for more than just a protected laptop area.
