What’s better than a totally personalized gift? A personalized gift from your S/O! Distance can suck, but there are many ways to make it more bearable. One of these ways is giving each other gifts. But trying to close the distance means that money can be tight. So here are 5 personalized gifts that you can make and send to your S/O for free!

1. The Mixtape

If your S.O. is a music lover then this is one of the best gifts you can give them. It’s easy, either make a playlist on iTtunes or YouTube and add songs that remind you of them and songs that mean something to you both.

2. The Pinterest Board

If you’re like me and spend about 90% of your time on Pinterest, this is amazing because you’re multitasking! The great thing about pinterest is that you don’t have to search all over the internet for love quotes, but you can still easily post things that remind you of your S.O. to a board especially for them. And trust me, you’ll have over 1,000 pins in no time. A Pinterest account is free!

3. Open When Letters

These are great when your S.O. starts school or doesn’t have much time to talk to you. Even if you’re not there, they’ll always have these letters to fit their current situation and they can always reread the letters whenever they feel that way again. If you don’t know what topics you’d like on your letters or can’t think of any ideas, you can view our list of 101 open When letter Topics for some inspiration!

Technology is an amazing thing isn’t it? You could make a Photoshop collage of their favorite things such as music bands, food, tv shows, etc. Maybe even make a collage of photos of yourselves together.

If all else fails, draw them a picture use a scanner and send it their way.
