The 8 Best Gifts for a Long Distance Relationship

Plenty of us have had to undergo the unfortunate yet all-too-frequent trial of having to spend extended, sometimes indefinite, time apart from our beloved. The realities of work and life have the impolite tendency to intrude on our love lives. 

But we here at Venus ET Fleur® dedicate ourselves daily to the practice of accentuating the positive. So instead of feeling down about not being able to spend quality, in-person time with your sweetheart, we urge you to think of all the ways that you can show them the depth and sincerity of your love from afar.

If you’re looking for ways to shower your special sweetheart with gifts this year to make up for the fact that you can’t see them in person, then Venus ET Fleur is here to help! We offer not only sage and sound life advice but expedient luxury rose delivery, making it easy to send your partner beautiful flowers on any day of the year, no matter how far away they may be. Not only that, but our elegant and fragrant Eternity® Roses come in a variety of arrangements and more than 24 dazzling colors.

With that said, let’s take a look at some of our favorite gifts suited for all the long-distance out there!

Pay Them a Call First Thing in the Morning

While it’s always better to spend time with your loved one in person, distance doesn’t always permit such a luxury. If your loved one is forced to spend the long days and nights apart from you, the very least you can do is give them a call first thing in the morning. This way, even if you aren’t able to spend physical time with them, they can at least receive the pleasure of hearing your voice.

If you really want to go the distance with this gesture, make it your mission to be the first voice they hear in the morning and the last one they hear before they tumble off to bed. Even if you don’t see each other for a long time after, at least your significant other will fall asleep thinking of you.

A Weighted Blanket

Weighted blankets are known to help relax your body by simulating the feeling of being held or hugged, making you fall asleep faster and achieve better quality sleep throughout the night. While no substitute for you, your partner is sure to appreciate the gesture and the blanket!

This is also a gift that, once reunited, the both of you will be able to enjoy together, perhaps as you snuggle up to watch a movie. This makes the weighted blanket a wise investment with impressive staying power.

A Candle That Reminds Them of Home

The immense emotional potency of smell is well established in science. You don’t need to have read Proust to know just how powerfully the right smell can evoke our most distant memories and treasured emotions. For this reason, we find that one of the most thoughtful and evocative gifts to give your long-distance paramour is the gift of a scented candle designed to remind your special someone of a time or place you may have shared together.

This could stand for many things—if your significant other is from the Pacific Northwest, perhaps a pine-scented candle will hit home. Or, if you know your partner is partial to the sweet smell of roses, they’re sure to love our Nue Tuberose scented candle, available only at Venus ET Fleur. This wonderful candle will fill your partner’s home with the delicate scent of roses, freesia, and orange blossom, and will likewise fill their hearts with the splendid reminder of your affection.

Buy Them an Outfit

For some of us, shopping for ourselves can represent a stressful and even occasionally frustrating experience. If your partner is someone like this, who refuses to buy new clothes until they are positively threadbare, then a wonderful way to show how much you care is to do the shopping for them! Go to the store and pick out everything your loved one will need to create a charming new outfit.

Not only are you giving your partner the delightful gift of new clothes, each time they wear this particular ensemble they will be reminded of you and your special affections for them.

A Heartfelt Love Message

When it comes to sending a heartfelt card or letter of love, it can be stressful to decide on what to write. But it doesn’t have to be! Something as simple as “I was thinking of you,” paired with a heartfelt bouquet, will be sure to have your partner swooning.

Alternatively, it can be bittersweet but deeply moving to recount a memory in detail of time spent together—either an unforgettable experience for the both of you, or perhaps a seemingly mundane detail that your partner likely doesn’t even remember, but which you find profound significance in.

Whatever you write, we’re sure it will come from the heart! We also encourage you to write your letter by hand to add an all-important personal touch to the gesture.

A Relaxing Vacation

Have you and your special someone been together for a number of years? It might be time to step up your game and take them on a relaxing vacation. This time of the year can be quite stressful for many people, and your sweetheart may need a break from all of the hustle and bustle of the work and whatever other stresses are bearing down on them.

What’s more, research shows that experiences, more than things, result in lasting joyful memories in people. Instead of letting them keep indoors, relaxing with the same old Netflix shows and takeout, why not whisk them away to a destination where they can truly get away from all their daily stressors and achieve some valuable peace of mind? There are innumerable places you can go, and your paramour will surely thank you for allowing them a much-needed break.

A Surprise Visit

Even better than the above, if the distance is the only thing keeping you and your significant other apart these days, is to shorten the distance by purchasing a ticket to come and pay them a visit!

You can, of course, buy them a ticket to come and visit you, but studies have shown that surprises are critical for bringing joy and vitality into our lives. So why not take the advice of learned scientists and spend some quality time with the person you love, so long as you can afford it?
