Distance presents a curious problem -how to be creative in your affections toward one another. Letters are fine but take time, buying gifts online is great but even that is now a social norm and sending care packages is wonderfully caring but requires a lot of effort and planning.
All of those ideas are wonderful ways to show your long distance love the depth of your caring, but what can you do when you want to create or something to your S/O that is quick, easy and spur of the moment?
We realize that sometimes long distance beaus miss out on the quick and easy aspects of being a couple. We argue that our relationships are that much stronger for it -but that doesn’t mean it’s not something we’d love to do within them.
This week’s Free Printable gift idea was created for that purpose. The LDR Pocket Book is a small 6 page pamphlet that takes very little effort to print, fill and send to your loved one.
The PDF comes with two separate envelope designs to slip your Pocket Book into. All you have to do is fill it out and mail it!
To download the free printable template for this How-to, just scroll down to the bottom of this article.
How to use this:
This pocket book comes with 6 pages of writing prompts – notes from you to your sweetheart.
Included in the pages are places for doodles, notes and the last page with allows you to attach a small photo. There is also a “Find your way to me” maze where you can draw you and your s/o at the beginning and end of the puzzle.

Remember those folding styles they taught you kindergarten?
Reach back into the depths of your mind -you’re gonna need those long-lost skills!
Once you’ve printed out the template for your pocket book, fold along the black lines.
We recommend double folding on either side for more flexibility when you arrange the template into a book later.
Align your template as pictured above to fold into your book shape.
Make sure the front and back pages of the book are in their correct places.
Just trim the edges if necessary & voila!
Fill out your pocketbook and send it to your love!
