It can be difficult to find a meaningful Christmas gift for your significant other when you are part of a long distance couple. For one, you might not be able to deliver it in person, so you might need to find something that is easy to ship. And what can you give that will say, “I’m thinking of you, despite the miles between us”? Try one–or more–of these holiday present ideas for long distance relationships.
Christmas Gifts for Long Distance Couples: Write a poem
If you have a way with words, why not try your hand at a Christmas poem? You might even consider having it framed for your long distance sweetie. It won’t cost you any more than the price of a frame and postage to send it. Or you could send sweet text messages all day, if you can’t spend Christmas day with your significant other.
Christmas Gifts for Long Distance Couples: Gas cards or tickets for visits
If you live far enough apart, getting together every weekend might get to be expensive. Send your sweetheart a plane ticket or a gas card for his next visit. Make sure you let him know that the gas card is meant to be used to fill his tank only on his way to see you. If you send it enough in advance, he might even make it home for Christmas.
Christmas Gifts for Long Distance Couples: Flower bouquet
Most ladies love a pretty bouquet. You don’t even have to be there to order flowers for her; call a florist in her area and have them delivered. If there are no florists open on Christmas Day, send them a couple days ahead of time. Surprise her by having them delivered to her office before her holiday break.
Christmas Gifts for Long Distance Couples: e-Gift Cards, Gift certificates
Make Christmas shopping easy this year–let him choose his own gift. Send your honey a gift card or an e-gift certificate to his favorite store this Christmas. Amazon.com is a good choice, since they carry much more than books. If he is into hunting or fishing, perhaps a Cabela’s gift card would make him happy.
Christmas Gifts for Long Distance Couples: Homemade card
A store-bought Christmas card just doesn’t cut it when you can make your own. All you need is some paper (preferably colored), scissors, glue, stickers, and anything else you think might be necessary. For the message inside, you could always look up cute sayings online…or you could write your own customized message, even a poem. Try a haiku–they are always easy: five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the third.
Have a happy holiday season!
