A long distance relationship is not only a test of your patience but also of your love. This list will provide a host of helpful ideas on what to gift your significant other, so that she keeps thinking about you, while being apart.
1. Book of Emails
Emails are an essential part of communication in long distance relationships. Not only do they hold a host of memories within their confines, but also show how deep your bond has become with time. So here is a wonderful gift idea – print out all the emails and get them bound into a hardcover book. To her, this will be like reading her own fairytale. This is an extremely thoughtful gesture to show your partner that distance has done nothing to mar your love for each other.
2. Countdown Clock
A lot of time is spent in counting down the time until the next meeting. So, why don’t you turn this into a wonderful, yet inexpensive gift? Such countdown clocks are available on many gifting websites. Pick one, feed the intended date in, and send it to her. This will keep her anticipation heightened and will keep you on her mind all the more.
You can never go wrong when gifting your girlfriend a piece of jewellery to remember you by. But instead of a generic piece, you would make a more endearing gesture if you buy her personalised jewellery. The best example will be gifting a charm bracelet. The beauty of this piece of jewellery is that it allows you attach more charms to it. So each time you meet her, you can attach a new charm for her to remember the moment by. It is an iconic and versatile gift that she is likely to wear all the time.
