A rare, unforgettable, and meaningful day for couples is Valentine’s Day. But Valentine’s Day can seem a little more daunting and complicated when you’re in a long-distance relationship. After all, while you would love to be able to spend time in person with your partner, plan gorgeous Valentine’s Day tablescape ideas, and have a romantic day together, while your partner is far from you, this isn’t a real possibility.
Luckily, there are five different ideas for Valentine’s Day celebrations that are perfect for those in long-distance relationships and can help bring you and your partner closer in new and important ways.
1. Send a Care Package
Although you may not be able to be physically close to your partner on Valentine’s Day, a special way to celebrate your bond with each other is to mail him or hear anything for the holiday. But instead of sweethearts, a bouquet of flowers, or a box of chocolates, why not send something a little more personal than only your partner would really appreciate? After all, for a reason—to show that you care—called it’s a care package.
For example, mailing a care package filled with your partner’s favorite candy, microwave popcorn, and a DVD of one of his favorite movies is a great way to send something a bit more personalized to celebrate the person he or she is.
2. Send a Picture-Perfect Gift
And speaking of unforgettable presents, another way to celebrate Valentine’s Day as well as show your love for your partner is to take personalization to the next level by including in your gift a photo (or images) of the two of you. For example, sending this one-of-a-kind gift for this day, whether it’s a framed picture, a photo album, or other personalized photo gifts such as a pillow, journal, or tote bag, is a perfect way to celebrate and enjoy the time you get to spend with each other as well as build excitement and intrigue for the next time you are with each other in person.
3. Be Together Digitally
Technology has never been so important for those in long-distance relationships. Being able to call, email, and talk with your partner during the day, after all, are vital ways of connecting that help you stay close even though you are far apart. So why not enjoy a romantic meal with your partner over video chat or Skype instead of spending this romantic day all alone and having dinner by yourself? You can, after all, be face-to-face, look into each other’s eyes with the aid of today’s technology, and have a Valentine’s Day that’s only possible in this day and age.
4. Choose Your Own Day for Valentine’s Day
When you’re in a long-distance relationship, choosing your own day to celebrate this day as a couple is another perfect way to enjoy the holiday. In other words, while February 14 is when the holiday is celebrated by most people, why not pick a new date that fits both your schedules and falls at a time when both of you are together?
In reality, a perfect way to celebrate your special relationship and keep your bond fresh and exciting is to make your own day. With this in mind, you can keep the passion and excitement in your relationship going all year long when you change Valentine’s Day to Cal-Day, engine’s aka a day that suits with your calendars.
5. Surprise Your Partner
While it is not always possible, it is always a winner to surprise your partner by visiting him or her or arranging a trip for him or her to come and see you on Valentine’s Day. But if this is not an option, as is the case with many long-distance relationships, it’s a perfect option to surprise him or her with a special Valentine’s Day while you’re still together.
In fact, when your partner doesn’t expect some kind of activities or celebrations for Valentine’s Day when you hang out in person, this is actually the perfect time to surprise him or her just for the two of you with a really special day.
Although you’re miles away from your significant one, it does not mean you can’t experience all these special days. Hopefully, these ideas will help you to celebrate this special day when you’re in a long-distance relationship.
