It can be difficult being in a long-distance relationship (LDR), though there are steps to make it easier. Frequently sending thoughtful, sincere gifts to let your sweetheart know how much you care about them works great in strengthening the bonds of love. In fact, research has shown that LDR couples are more skilled at intimacy and communicating than local couples. Here at Carithers Flowers, Atlanta’s best florist, we know about love and romance and can guide you in how to keep the embers burning bright.
The Best Gifts for Long-Distance Couples
The universally accepted symbol of love, it is no wonder the rose is everyone’s favorite flower. Growing in a variety of sumptuous colors, each with its own different meaning, roses are perfect for letting your long-distance sweetheart know how much you love them. Red roses are affiliated with romantic love and passion, but a mix of colorful roses are always a nice surprise. For example, our True Romance bouquet is a stunning example of pink, red, and lavender roses.
These cute bracelets are a wonderful way to keep you and your long-distance love close at all times. Each bracelet has the coordinates of where each of you live and then you wear your partner’s bracelet and he wears yours. That way, you can keep each other close.
A living plant makes a wonderful gift for numerous reasons. First, plants have mood-boosting benefits. Second, they purify the air, and third, they freshen up any interior. If your sweetie lacks a green thumb, don’t worry, just choose a plant that is easy to take care of, like an orchid.
Collect all of your favorite moments of your and your partner in one place with a photo book. This is an excellent way for both of you to reminisce special moments in your life without scrolling through hundreds of photos on your phone. Sites like Shutterfly make it easy to upload and customize your photo book to make it a memento both of you will cherish forever.
Sometimes, you just want something soft and warm to cuddle, and when it can’t be your partner, then the Plush Doggo is a good second choice. These squishy, soft, and huggable stuffed animals are a fabulous gift for anyone. Every time your long-distance love hugs and snuggles with this cutie, she will think of you.
