Being apart from the one you love is hard, but keeping the bond strong between both of you doesn’t have to be. Sure, face-timing is nice, but sometimes you want to show how much you care by sending a special gift to your long-distance paramour. Here at Norton’s Florist, Birmingham’s best flower shop, we’re in the business of love and romance, and therefore, we’ve listed a few gifts below that are sure to keep the love going strong and passions high, no matter the distance between.
Perfect Gifts for Your Long-Distance SO
A Bouquet of Red Roses
Since ancient Greek times, red roses have been used in Western culture to symbolize deep love, attraction, and passion. Receiving a bouquet of red roses is one of the most joyful and wonderful experiences ever. Make your long-distance special someone swoon in delight by sending them a bouquet of red roses to show how much you care about them. Our bouquet of 18 roses in our Never Let Go bouquet includes the world’s finest roses hand-selected for a long-lasting and sweet-smelling arrangement.
“Open When” Letters
Write personal letters for different occasions such as when your boyfriend or girlfriend could use a pick me up, when they are lonely, missing you, need a laugh, or encouragement. Then, seal each of them up with a sticker (or wax stamp) and give them to open only when they need to hear your encouraging words. This a great intimate gift and a meaningful way to be there in spirit when you can’t be there in person.
Bond Touch Bracelets
Pick up a pair of these bracelets, one for you and your boo to wear, and be notified anytime they are thinking of you. When you tap on your bracelet, they feel it – no matter how far away they are. Vibrations and customized colors lighting up on their bracelet when you touch yours will signal to your SO that they are on your mind. It’s a great way to stay connected.
Soft, squishy, and very huggable, send a plush stuffed animal to your long-distance GF so she can snuggle with it and think of you at the same time. These adorable plush pups are so nice she’s sure to have it, and by association, you, in her arms at all times.
Create a keepsake memory of you and your loved one’s special moments together with a photo book. Services like Shutterfly let you upload photos, arrange, edit, and add text and graphics to personalize your photos and memories. These are also great for documenting trips taken together. Print one out for yourself so you each have one.
A plant is a great gift to receive whether you’re in a relationship or not because of the air-purifying and mood-boosting benefits they have. But they take on an even deeper meaning when given to a long-distance love – as the plant is watered, nurtured, and taken care of, so too will be the relationship between the giver and the recipient. Choose an easy-to-care-for plant to take the pressure off if your mate doesn’t exactly have a green thumb. Good choices are orchids, succulents, and dish gardens.
Keep the love strong and the passion alive by sending thoughtful gifts from the heart to your long-distance significant other. For additional ideas, visit your local florist – remember, flowers are always a great gift idea – no matter the time or circumstances.
