Finding the right gift for your girlfriend is difficult enough, but when you bring a long-distance relationship into the mix it can get even harder. However, finding the perfect gift for your long-distance girlfriend doesn’t have to be stressful. Here are six gifts that any long distance girlfriend would love.


Everyone loves sweets, which is why they make the best gift. With chocolate strawberries, you can make your girlfriend feel loved even when you can’t be there in person. Make sure that you schedule a video chat so that you can watch her eat them, though! After all, half of the fun is watching someone actually open his or her present.

Touch Bracelets

Women enjoy knowing that you’re thinking about them. Touch bracelets allow you to feel each other even when you can’t be together in person.

A touch bracelet allows you to connect with your loved one in real-time with a light buzz on their wrist. When you touch the bracelet, their bracelet will vibrate, which can help them ease anxiety during big meetings or let them know that you’re thinking about him even when you’re busy.

Light Lamps

Dating in the digital world is difficult enough, especially when you’re expected to text back right away. Light lamps work similarly to touch bracelets, besides the fact that you can’t take them with you on the go. However, they can still help you tell your partner that you’re thinking about them without interrupting their day.

Light lamps are sold in sets of two. When your partner sets up her light lamp, you can touch your lamp, and it will light up their lamp no matter how far away she is.

You can use your light lamp to communicate in different ways without texting. Instead of saying goodnight, you can simply touch your lamp and let them know that you’re thinking about them before bed.

A Custom Blanket

A custom blanket can help remind your significant other of what they have waiting for them when they return to you. You can put any photo of the two of you on a blanket (or even a pillow) and have it sent directly to their home. These blankets are not only beautiful, but they’re comfortable and make the perfect addition to any home.

A DIY Message in a Bottle

If you and your partner don’t like spending money on each other, then you can make them a message in a bottle that actually includes multiple messages. Each day, your loved one can unwrap one little note and read a personalized message from you. These messages can include anything from simple positive talk to memories that the two of you share.

A Memory Book

While you can buy a memory book, you can also make your own with a photo album. Look at all of the pictures on your phone and pick your favorites. You can have them printed with an online service and shipped to your home.

You can also purchase a photo book from your local craft store. Then, take all of the photos that you’ve had printed and glue them into the photo book with stickers and notes that you write. You can include simple messages in your memory book that remind your loved one how much you care about them. Once complete, you can send your memory book to your girlfriend in the mail.

Finding a Long-Distance Relationship Gift for Him

While finding the right gift is never easy, consider the values of your girlfriend to find the right gift for her. If she enjoys thoughtful gifts, then you can easily make her a DIY message in a bottle that she’ll be sure to cherish. If she’s someone that likes tech, choose the touch bracelets that allow you to communicate without communicating.
