Everyone loves to relax, life is hectic and we all need some time to cool down. If your S/O works a lot, is super stressed about the distance or is pretty much consumed with college exam stress this is the perfect gift idea: a relaxing monthly box of spa products they can use to sit back and relax.

69. Send a photo pop

These are photos or text of your choice printed onto a rice-krispies pop and sprinkled with your choice of sugary sprinkles. We love this idea because it’s so unique and so fun to look at.

71. Send them a couple shirt

If you and your love are totally into sports, this couple shirt that sports “king” and “queen” with 01 as your team numbers is basically perfect for you. It’s adorable enough that both of you will want to wear it, but not too girly for a guy!

72. Get custom notebooks

The distance is hard, so try this idea: get these two personalize notebooks and spend some time writing in each. After you’ve filled the notebooks with thoughts, mail them to each other to swap! You can write personal messages, love notes, include photos – whatever! And when you’re finally together it will be the PERFECT keepsake. (photo source)

Yes, being in a LDR is hard but it’s possible!! You only have to want to go through this. I met my Polish girlfriend on a website and we just started to talk… Then I realized I fell in love! She is amazing 😀 We are together since 8 months and it’s the best time in my life. We are trying to see each other as often as it’s possible, we talk to each other everyday… You can do it if you only want 🙂 🙂
