1. Be Creative
A long distance relationship shouldn’t stop you from getting creative! Sometimes its nice to be creative for your partner. For that, you need to come up with ideas of your own. Giving meaningful gifts doesn’t always mean buying expensive gift items. Mostly it’s the thought that really counts. Whatever present you gift to your special person shows how much you know and care about that person. Write a short note or notes for your love and tuck them in different envelopes with dates on them for each day so that when you’re not around they can see the note, which can bring a smile on their faces.
2. Make Silly Calendars
You can either buy or make calendars with your pictures on them taken by you or your friends with little notes on them. It can be your special days just in case you’re not around for those days. You can also add a little lollipop or a gift item like a pair of earrings or a pendant or a box of the favorite chocolates or a pair of cufflink or hosiery to it. You can draw little sketches too on the calendars to make them look a little artsy.
3. Cds and Videos

Make a cd of all the favorite songs of that person including the songs of all the special moments you’ve spent together. You could make a video of all the pictures of the moments you had together, include a song in the background and send through mail or courier.
4. Message in a Bottle
This is the cutest way to make the special person in your life feel really special. Get hold of his or her favorite perfume bottle or a favorite wine bottle or any favorite alcohol bottle that is empty. Or, if you want any designer bottle, stuff it with toffees and streamers or paper cuttings or mints or small chocolates and put in a note that you’ve written out for that special tinkle. Then cover the top with a bow or a ribbon and pack it nicely with bubble wrap so that it doesn’t undergo any damage, when being sent.

Distance cannot harm or hinder the bond between two people in love. If you believe in yourself and your respected partner in crime, love and the beautiful relationship that you both share, then it truly is worth holding on to irrespective of the miles that separate the two love birds.
