Long distance relationships rely much more heavily on gift-giving than in-person relationships.
That’s because you can’t reach out and touch your long distance partner, squeeze their hand, or look them in the eyes.
Giving the best gifts take the place of all the little things you’d do for your lover in person.
Read on below and explore 15 of the best long distance relationship gifts!
Best Long Distance Relationship Gifts to Send Her
From friendship lamps and touch bands to 24K gold roses and gift cards to stores like Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works, there are never-ending long distance gift ideas for her!
Here are our picks for the best long distance relationship gifts to send her:
1. Telepathy Friendship Lamps
Telepathy Friendship Lamps are some of the coolest new-age gadgetry for LDR couples that want to keep in touch even when they aren’t on the phone.
When you set up a pair of these lamps, you can both change the colors of each other’s lamps.
So, when you agree on the meanings for various colors, you’ll know what the secret message is.
For example, green could mean “I’ll call in 5-minutes” and red could mean “I’m busy, don’t call yet.”
This particular set of lamps also has four pockets for photos of her loved ones (you!) to be inserted.
2. Love Box Love Messenger
This nifty WiFi gadget is a great LDR gift for her. It’s in the shape of a small wooden box with a pixel heart on it.
When you take the top off of it, there is a small screen where messages and photos can be displayed and shared.
The Love Box Love Messenger also works on the same principle as the friendship lamps.
Secret love messages can be shared back and forth by changing the color of the Love Box.
3. Lucky Feather Long Distance Relationships Couples Bracelets
The Lucky Feather Long Distance Relationships Couples Bracelets are fashioned from onyx (the black one) and howlite (the white one).
The bracelets don’t do anything fancy, but what they do is represent your relationship and bond.
Knowing that your partner is wearing one and that you are wearing the other one, is enough to make it a great and sentimental gift for her.
4. Smart Wooden Digital Picture Frame
We all know that girls love pictures of their boyfriends, so what better gift to consider sending her than a smart digital picture frame?
If you order the frame to arrive at your house first, you can preload it with some special pictures of your own before mailing it off to her.
As far as long distance relationship gifts go, this one is far from a unique gift, but it is a great way to stay connected even when you’re not on the phone, to say the least.
5. Preserved Red Real Rose with I Love You Necklace
All long distance relationships go through a phase where one partner sends the other a romantic gift. Typically it’s followed up by one trying to outdo the other.
If your relationship is reaching that point, it’s time to up the ante and send her something special like this preserved real red rose with the I love you necklace.
Whether she wears it or keeps it on a shelf forever is up to her!
6. Amazon Gift Card (In a Cute Package)
For women, gift cards are never a bad idea. Well, let’s back up and rephrase that: for men shopping for women, gift cards may be the perfect gift.
If you suck at picking out gifts for your long distance partner, consider gifting them a card with a preset amount of money on it to spend.
Amazon, Victoria’s Secret, and Bed & Body Works are just a few great places to get her a gift card from!
7. 10.1 Inch WiFi Digital Picture Frame
This digital picture frame may be more her style than the wooden one listed above because it’s larger and wider.
All the same excellent benefits apply, the main one being that she’ll have pictures of you to look at even when you’re not on phone calls or chats.
Most importantly, you’ll rest easy knowing that when she lies down in bed at night, your face (or whatever pictures you programmed for her) is the last thing she sees before closing her eyes at night.
8. 3D Crystal Picture Engraved Heart
It’s not a digital gadget or a fancy smart frame with slideshows, but it is just as sentimental and makes a perfect gift for her.
This 3D heart of crystal is laser-etched with a picture of your choice.
If you want to be creative, photoshop pictures of you and your LDR partner together into one and have it engraved into the heart.
She’ll be surprised and touched by the sweet message of the gift.
9. Capsule Love Messages in a Bottle
Another great gift that is very interactive, plenty personal, and even touching, yet not digital whatsoever is this bottle full of capsules with messages inside them.
To really make the most of this gift idea, however, you need to mail it to your house first rather than to hers.
When it arrives, empty out the generic messages and replace them with small strips of paper with handwritten love notes for her.
Again, it’s not very modern, technologically, but it’s a very romantic gift nonetheless.
10. Cute Little Heart Pocket Hug Token & Gift Card
Gift cards aren’t nearly as often thought of as a gift option these days as they were, say, 10 or 15 years ago.
But, they are still a great option for your long distance lover.
If you search around you can find just the right message, like this pocket hug token and gift card.
At any rate, you can always make it a personalized gift by inking in your own additional messages.
11. TOTWOO Touch Bracelets for Couples
In case you weren’t impressed with the first bracelets on the list but liked the general idea, perhaps these slightly more sophisticated units suffice.
This particular set of bracelets is rather unique, with astrological signs for the sun (his bracelet), moon, and stars (and hers).
No matter how far apart you are, you can always feel connected with your partner while wearing these bracelets.
12. Cell Phone Stand with Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
Long distance relationships don’t exist without the aid of technology these days.
Phones are the LDR couple’s best friend. That’s why a cell phone stand with a wireless Bluetooth speaker is one of the all-time greatest long distance gifts for her.
This way, she can charge her phone, talk to you, listen to you, and do it all hands-free.
That also means she’ll be able to stream her showers live (yikes!).
13. Echo Show HD Smart Display with Alexa
If you’re looking for a gift that helps your LDR partner stay on top of her daily schedule, including chatting with you, an Echo Show smart display is a great long distance gift idea.
With the Echo Show, she’ll be able to set alarms, schedule chat times with you, and monitor her smart devices, all from one convenient display screen (which happens to be over 15-inches large).
Echo Show is also great for searching the web, listening to music, locking and unlocking smart locks, turning smart lights on and off, and much more.
14. Echo Dot
The Echo Dot is another extremely useful long distance gift idea for couples.
With Echo Dot, she’ll be able to answer your calls and talk with you even if her hands are busy.
Further, she can simply tell the Echo Dot to call you and it will dial your number for her.
15. Smart Plugs with Alexa
If your long distance partner already has an Echo Dot, Echo Show, or some other sort of smart home interface with Alexa, smart plugs make great long distance gifts.
These plugins work just like standard plugs, but they are controllable via the EchoDot or whatever device your partner uses Alexa with.
If she plugs her TV, lamp, charger, or coffee machine into the plugs, all she has to do is tell Alexa to turn on a specific plug and the appliance will power up and switch on.
16. SoundAngel SmartTouch Bluetooth Speaker
In the case that your long distance lover is already stocked up on most of the techy LDR gear she needs, a SoundAngel SmartTouch Bluetooth speaker is a good gift idea.
This way she can enjoy music, news reports, Google search reports, and talking on the phone with you hands-free.
17. Classic Friendship Lamps
Classic Friendship Lamps are one of the best long distance relationship gifts ever thought up and designed.
These lights come in a pair of two, so you’ll need to send one to her after they arrive at your house.
Agree on color-coded messages and you’ll be able to stay in touch with a single touch even when you’re not on the phone or chatting together.
18. Customized Pillow With a Lovey-dovey Message
Another excellent gift for a long distance relationship is a customized pillow with a lovey-dovey message on it.
If you shop around you can find pillows like this one that allows you to fill in any message you want.
In the case you aren’t so great with words, you can always find a pre-designed pillow that fits your relationship that’s sure to make her smile.
19. 9 oz Lavender Soy Candle
Candles may be a bit cliche when it comes to a long distance relationship gift, but, nonetheless, they are a classic and timeless gift that women love receiving.
You need to know your partner a bit, so you can pick a candle scent that invokes emotions (specifically romantic ones).
Generally speaking, lavender is one of the most popular candle scents for women.
Picking a candle with a sexy message on it will most likely gain you a few brownie points from your girl as well!
20. BOND TOUCH Bracelets
The BOND TOUCH bracelets are one of the most popular LDR gifts on the market right now.
With these “bracelets” (which look and feel like smart watches) you’ll always be in touch with your partner.
Even if you’re miles apart, you can monitor your partner’s heart rate, temperature, location, and more.
21. AGPTEK Smartwatch for Android and iOS Phones
If you’ve already got touch-type bracelets to stay in touch with, perhaps a smartwatch for her is in order.
That way she can see your texts and answer your phone calls while she’s on the go (even if her hands are full).
The downside is that this watch doesn’t allow her to text you back from its interface directly (she’ll still need to use her phone for that).
22. TENS 7000 Digital TENS Unit With Accessories
In a long distance relationship, you can’t welcome your partner home at the end of the day with a hug, kiss, and body massage.
However, you can give them the gift of a TENS 7000, which is almost as good!
This digital tens unit with accessories allows your partner to get a deep tissue massage and feel completely rejuvenated in as little as 15 to 20 minutes per day.
23. KODAK Printomatic Digital Instant Print Camera
It may seem a bit eccentric, and maybe it actually is, but if she enjoys photography, she’s likely to love this KODAK Printomatic Digital Instant Print Camera.
With this modern throwback device she can snap pictures anywhere she goes and send them to you in the mail like postcards.
… it also means she could send you certain cough cough types of cough cough selfies without having to worry about anyone else online getting their hands on them somehow.
24. ECOLOR RGB APP Control Smart Lamp
If your girl loves the sky, especially the moon and stars, this ECOLOR RGB APP Control Smart Lamp is a real winner.
At first glance, it seems like a kid’s moon lamp, but look closer.
The moon-shaped LED lamp is dimmable, changes colors has a programmable alarm, and much more.
Sure, it won’t really help you stay in touch, but it can help her wake up on time to talk with you.
She’ll also remember you every time she looks at the lamp.
25. 4 in 1 Touch Lamp, Portable Bluetooth Speaker, Phone Holder, and Charger
This convenient gift is perfect for your long distance relationship partner.
The device holds, charges, and illuminates her phone as well as produces sound with a Bluetooth speaker.
If she’s been struggling with keeping her phone charged, or needs a new charger… you know what to do!
26. Polaroid Now I-Type Instant Camera
For the kind of LDR partner that’s always on the go, the Now I-Type Instant Camera from Polaroid is an excellent gift idea.
With this Polaroid, she’ll be able to snap quick pics of all the special moments and share them with you via snail mail.
In fact, when you finally get to visit each other, the camera will be super handy for taking plenty of instant pictures.
27. 3D Rose Crystal with LED Color Lamp
If you want to make a romantic gesture to the significant other in your long distance relationship, what better way to do it than with the classic symbol of love?
The red rose has symbolized love and more specifically romance, for centuries upon centuries.
Let your long distance lover know you mean business about your relationship with this 3D crystal rose with an LED color lamp.
28. Spa Tumbler Relaxation Gift Set
In a long distance relationship, there aren’t as many tangible options for couples to spend time relaxing together.
That’s why a spa tumbler relaxation gift set is a great gift idea for your significant other.
If you’re lucky, they might even set their phone on the cell phone stand you sent them and let you watch them using the gift set (… in the bath!).
29. Burt’s Bees Gift Set
Burt’s Bees gift set is a real winner with the ladies, you can’t go wrong with it.
Made from organic beeswax, the personal care and beauty products are top-notch.
If you want her to feel like a lady, Burt’s Bees are one of the easiest routes!
30. LifeAround2Angels Bath Bombs Gift Set
These bath bombs are sure to get her in the mood (be it an appreciative one… or something more sexually-oriented).
The set includes several types of bath bombs, so she’ll have enough supplies to keep her skin feeling and smelling amazing for many many baths to come.
31. Digital Voice Recorder
If your long distance relationship partner is into writing, reporting, or otherwise documenting things, a digital voice recorder is a thoughtful gift.
After she downloads herself a copy of her recordings, she can share them with you as well!
It isn’t the most romantic gift, but if she’s in school, or is an academic type, she’ll enjoy it more than something typical like flowers or chocolate.
32. Victoria’s Secret Gift Card
Sometimes the best gift you can give is a gift card, that way your long distance love can pick their own gift.
A Victoria’s Secret gift card is one of the best there is for women. If you’re not familiar with the fashion brand, it’s a prestigious lingerie and underwear line.
If you don’t know her exact size for various clothing and don’t want to give away the surprise, send her a gift card.
Hopefully, after she buys something, she’ll let you know her size so you can pick something for her next time.
That said, some girls love shopping for sexy clothing and underwear, so a gift card is always a great idea.
33. Touch Lamps for Living Room or Bedroom with USB Ports
Touch lamps are among the best gifts to consider for your long distance love.
The lamps are much more than just an ordinary source of light, they have built-in charges, and change color at your lover’s merest touch.
Even more, these touch lamps are long distance-friendly, so you can both change the color of each other’s lamps.
If you agree with what each color means, you can send color-coded messages with barely more than a tap.
34. Bath and Body Works Gift Card
When you are dating someone long distance, it’s always a pleasant surprise to receive a gift card from them in the mail.
This gift card, for Bath and Body Works is a real lady pleaser.
She’ll be able to buy comfy slippers, clothes, underwear, a robe, her favorite perfume, make-up, shampoos, lotions, and much more.
The hardest part about this purchasing decision is choosing the amount of money you load onto the card.
35. Cordless Curve Therapeutic Device
The cordless curve therapeutic device is perfect for sending a long distance partner that works long hard hours at work or school.
At the end of the day, or on their days off, they can lie around on the phone with you using the device to melt away their stress (and tensed-up muscles).
All things considered, this cordless curve therapeutic device is curiously almost identical to a large vibrating wand (a favorite sex toy of women).
So, don’t be shy about asking her to show you the device on the next video chat (you might just get lucky and have some long distance “fun”).
36. Remote Smart Connection Love Bracelet
There are new long distance bracelets coming out all the time, like these intriguing smart connection love bracelets.
The bracelets feature comfortable bands, as well as intriguing symbols and a light that changes colors.
Agree on the meaning of the light’s colors and you may send quick messages to each other.
For example, blue can mean “call now” and yellow can mean “I’m at work/busy”, while red or purple can mean “I love you.”
37. Fitbit Versa 2 Health and Fitness Smartwatch
The Fitbit Versa 2 HEalth and fitness Smartwatch is a great idea for long distance couples who want to gift each other things to help one another get into shape.
The watch tracks your heartbeats, blood pressure, amount of steps you take, your physical location via GPS, and much more.
These aren’t StarTrek intercoms, however, so you won’t be able to beam each other up like Scottie or even talk to each other audibly through the devices.
38. Smart WiFi Wireless Essential Oil Aromatherapy
For the ladies, essential oil aromatherapy is a smash hit.
That’s why you can not go wrong investing in this Smart Wifi Wireless essential oil aromatherapy unit for her.
Whether she uses it every day, or only when she wants to relax or get into the “mood”, she’s sure to love and appreciate the gift.
39. 24K Gold Rose for Her
Nothing and we mean nothing, says “I love you” like gold and roses (not even chocolate and roses compare!).
This unique and absolutely gorgeous gift is made from 24K gold and fashioned like a real lifesize rose.
The stem and leaves of this flower are golden, and the petals are crimson red.
40. Sleep Instrument The Chill Pill Device Brain Massage Machine
This intriguing gift idea is great for long distance couples with separation anxiety who find it hard to achieve deep and peaceful sleep.
The way the device functions is a bit of a mystery to us, but according to customers, it works like a charm (literally).
This sleep artifact can help both of you get to sleep shortly after getting off the phone, ending a video chat, or sending messages back and forth (with little to no effort).
41. Touch Bedside Lamp with Wireless Charger
One last touch lamp for long distance couples to consider gifting each other is this unit with the wireless charge built-in.
She’ll get plenty of use out of the map, changing its colors along with her mood, and using the charge to lie in bed and chat/talk with you on the phone.
It may not have an app that lets you change its colors remotely, but it will definitely help her keep all the devices needed to stay in touch with you charged and ready.
42. Tracki GPS Tracker
The Tracki GPS Tracker is another interesting gift for long distance couples.
Whether you’re doing it for safety purposes, or just because you want to feel that much more connected, a GPS tracker is a sure way to always know where she is.
That said, if you expect her to throw this in her backpack, purse, or glovebox, you’d better be willing to do the same!
It’s only intimate if you both have trackers.
43. Azpen Dockall D100 – Qi Wireless Charger
The Azpen Dockall D100 – Qi Wireless Charger is another great albeit mundane gift for long distance couples who talk on their phones a lot.
This charger helps your long distance girlfriend or wife keep their phone charged even while they are talking to you or video chatting on their phone.
Again, it isn’t a romantic gift, but it can keep her phone or tablet charged while you two watch a romantic tear-jerker movie online together!
44. Minolta 20 Mega Pixels Wifi Digital Camera
An amazing gift that she’ll treasure forever is the photos she’ll take with this 20 Mega Pixels WFi digital camera once you gift it to her.
Whether she’s a hobbyist, or she’s trying to reach new levels with her photography skills and earn paid commissions, your other half will know you support her dreams with this gift.
If you want to go the extra mile, consider throwing in a carry bag, professional lighting equipment, or some software for organizing and editing her photography.
Who knows, maybe when she becomes the next national geographic photographer of the year, she’ll mention the special someone who has always supported her career!
45. Engraved Rock with a Sentimental Message for Her
An engraved rock might not seem like the likeliest gift for that special someone, but, in a fun way, it’s a great addition to your love story.
It’s not some cool tech gift or even love letters, but it’s sure to leave a smile on your partner’s face when they open it up from the mail.
Plus, there are dozens of sweet messages to choose from for your lover’s engraved rock!
