5 Amazing Gifts To Keep The Fire Burning In Your Long Distance Relationship
Everyone who has ever been in a long distance relationship will tell you it's very hard to maintain. After you haven't seen each other for a while it can sometimes change how you feel. Even if you still see each other every other weekend it's still a long time to be away from each other. If you truly love the other person you need to make sure the fire keeps burning. You shouldn't have to sacrifice your future together because you aren't at the point in your life's where you can be together all the time.
There's always those long telephone conversations, and because the Internet makes it easy to see each other face-to-face when you speak it definitely helps. But it's always nice to do something a little different. To show them that you care and are always thinking about them. One way to do that is to send them a little gift. Even though they are not beside you they will have something to treasure and it will always remind them of you. There's some very creative ways you can do this and we are going to look at them now.
A message in a bottle
Write out a beautiful love letter and put it inside an attractive bottle so they can keep it on their windowsill like an ornament. Write the letter in your best handwriting and splash some of your favorite cologne on it. Then roll it up into a scroll and slip it inside the bottle. You obviously want to choose one with a wider opening otherwise she won't be able to read it. The chances of it reaching her are pretty slim if you take it down the beach and throw it in the sea, so you will have to deliver it by post making sure it doesn't get broken.
A piece of jewellery
But not just any piece of jewellery. Something she can wear every day no matter what she's wearing. Maybe a charm necklace that will reminder her of you when she is wearing it. You don't need to go out and spend thousands of dollars. I'm sure she would love anything as long as it came from you. If you're unsure of what she is guaranteed to love you might be best waiting until you see her and asking if she'd pick it out herself.
An indoor plant
If you drive down to your local garden center and pick something up she will probably give you a funny look. It needs to be a romantic one. You know what I'm talking about, right? The little plants that grow inside a mug that says 'I love you.' If you give her something that needs to be looked after she has no other option but to keep you in her thoughts. And females tend to love those kind of things.
Your favorite t-shirt
Somehow they all like to sit around the house at night in our favorite t-shirts. It's like some kind of law women must obey. Well what would be sweeter than saying goodbye to the t-shirt you love and letting her wear it every night? But there's a really sneaky way to get around this. Just go out and buy yourself the same t-shirt and give her the old one. And remember to hide it whenever she's at your house.
Create a collage
Take all your favorite photos and create a lovely collage that can go up on her wall. You can style it in any way she'd love. If you don't have any photos you will need to take some the next time you see each other. It could even go in a frame so it looks even better. Just be as creative as you can and you will definitely score some brownie points.
