Gift Ideas to Keep Your Long-Distance Relationship Bond Strong

Having a long-distance relationship (LDR) is no easy task, particularly when dealing with the pain of missing someone and the nearly intolerable long moments between visits. Here at Port Charlotte Florist, we know a bit about relationships and love. To help lessen the difficulty of living so far away from your love, we made a list of the best long-distance relationship gifts that will keep the love going between you both and strengthen the reasons why you got together in the first place.

Long-Distance Relationship Gifts from the Heart

Premium long stem roses designed in a beautiful crystal vase

Bouquet of Roses

There isn’t a better flower than the rose to express love, and there isn’t anything better than being on the receiving end of a bouquet of gorgeous roses. Whether pink, red, yellow, or mixed, roses are beautiful, sweet-smelling, and the symbol of love. Our Platinum Roses in a Crystal Vase is a great example of the beauty and elegance a colorful collection of roses can be. This is a gift sure to please anybody, near or far.

Cactus and succulent dish


For a gift that keeps on giving, send an easy-to-care-for plant, like succulents, to your boyfriend or girlfriend, and each time they see it they will think of you. Plus, watering the plant and nurturing its growth is symbolic of nurturing your long-distance relationship. Our charming Golf Ball Planter is a wonderful gift for the special guy in your life as it not only freshens the air, livens up the home, but also makes him think of you.

Woman's hands writing a letter

“Open When” Letters

Prepare a stack of hand-written, from-the-heart letters for your SO to open only under certain occasions, such as when they are feeling sad, or lonely, in need of a confidence boost, or a laugh. Reading your encouraging words in these letters when they need them most is a great way to give love and support from afar.

His and Her Coffee Mugs

Custom Couple Mug

If you are both coffee, or tea, lovers, then a customized mug with photos of the two of you on it is a nice way to enjoy warm feelings for your SO while enjoying a warm beverage. Or, get two mugs that go together as a set with each being different in some way, is another great way for both of you to enjoy a cuppa joe together, yet apart.

Touch Bracelets

For a more high-tech way of staying connected, pick up a pair of long-distance touch bracelets for you and your partner. When synched together, these bracelets allow you to let your loved one know you are thinking about them. A simple touch on your bracelet will send vibrations and color to your partner’s bracelet to let them know they are on your mind.

Pillow with Hug Me words

Hug-Me Pillowcase

Being apart from your one true love can be hard, especially at night when they are not there for you to hug them while sleeping. Having this Hug Me Pillow Until You Can Hug Me pillowcase might ease the pain a bit and give you something to hold on to until you are hugging the real thing.

open photo book with pics of couples on beach


Send a personalized printed-out book of your favorite photos with sentimental messages to keep the bond strong. With services like Shutter-fly, you can organize photos of a trip you took together or images of special moments and turn them into a keepsake book you can share forever.

The important thing about a long distant gift is that it comes from the heart. Just the fact you are sending them a gift at all is letting them know you are thinking of them. And, if you’ve already sent them all of the above gifts, you can never go wrong with beautiful seasonal flowers paired with a bottle of wine.
