"Romeo Romeo, where art thou Romeo?" Well sometimes our Romeo (or Juliet) lives across the country, or maybe even in a different country. If that's the case, then you are in what society likes to call "long-distance relationship." And there's nothing wrong with that! Distance makes the heart grow fonder, right? As a part of this relationship, it's still important to let your loved one know that you care about them and miss them. So here at Birthday Girl, we came up with some gifts that will definitely put a smile on their face and maybe a tear or two.
- A picture of your two locations on a map in a frame.
An easy and fun way to let your loved one know you’re thinking about them is to get a picture of the state/country they are currently living it, cut it out, and put it next to a picture of the state/country you’re living in. Grab a frame, slide the picture in and boom. For more creativity, add a quote such as “Home is wherever I am with you” or any Taylor Swift lyric for that fact.
- 52 things I like about you.
10 things I hate about you is one of the most beloved and iconic 90’s teen flicks that still holds dear to our hearts today. Who doesn’t remember the poem Kat gives at the end and if you don’t you need to YouTube it now. Taking the idea from Kat, we decided to make a gift idea out of it, and instead of hate we changed it to like. Buy a deck of cards and for each card write something you like about your significant other on it. Be sure when you give it as a gift to tell them, one card per week so they will have a year full of compliments and smiles and that ooey gooey feeling in their stomach.
- The sleeping duo.
Our first reaction to seeing this gift was is this possible? Well it is! The genius invention is called Pillow Talk and this is how it works. Before you and your loved one go to sleep, put on the wireless ring sensor. When you or your partner lies on the pillow, the other pillow will slightly glow and give you the ability to hear their heartbeat. Thus feeling a little closer to your loved one. Sweet, sweet dreams.
- The good old love letter.
We’re bringing it back, we mean way back. Texts and emails are sweet but there is nothing as intimate or endearing as a love letter. Shakespeare became a world famous poet because of his and how can we forget about Noah in the notebook that wrote Allie a letter everyday for a year. This gift not only costs about nothing (a pen, paper, and envelopes all that are required), it will make your loved one happy and is something they can hang up on the wall or look back on when they are sad. These are also the type of gifts that years later, they can pull out and show your grandkids. A gift to last the generations.
- Sweater Weather
This gift is from the guy to the girl. It’s something every girl has probably had her eye on since the beginning. No not your wallet. We’re talking about your sweater. Guys, every girl wants to keep your favorite sweater because when they wear it, it reminds them of you and it smells like you, and it feels like you. Just grab your favorite sweater, wrap it in a pretty box, and send it to your girl. Tip: Spray some of your cologne on it before you send it off to make it smell like you. She wil this gift, Birthday Girl guarantee.
The best gifts for any long-distance relationship are the ones from the heart. Make sure to always remind each other howmuch you love them. Distance can be difficult, but it’s not impossible. Always celebrate life and love every day, near or far!
