Being far away from your SO is hard enough in itself. Here’s a list of things to invest in that will make the distance a little bit easier to handle:

  1. A Body Pillow


Okay, so you don’t have to go this far, but a simple body pillow to cuddle with can make those lonely nights much more bearable.

  1. Headphones With A Mic


Skyping will be made much more bearable if you both have a quality pair of headphones and a microphone because there’s nothing better than being able to hear the sounds of your SO’s voice. And along these same lines, head to the store and buy a video camera if your computer doesn’t have one. Once you’re finally looking at each other’s smiling faces, say hi to your SO for me!


  1. A Lap Desk


While you’re doing all that Skyping, you’ll find that you can never get your laptop to stay in a comfortable place. But never fear; a lap desk is the computer-lover’s savior.

  1. Amazon Prime


Sending your SO cute little gifts in the mail can become absolutely addicting. A subscription to a website like Amazon will can save you loads of dough. Not to mention you’ll get free two-day shipping, so you can surprise your SO even sooner.

  1. Ice Cream


You never know when a wave of sadness may hit you, so always have the freezer stocked just in case.

  1. Netflix


Not only is this a great way to spend some alone time, it’s also perfect for staying connected to your SO. Start a series together and guess which man the main character will end up with or watch a movie at the same time and gasp together on video chat as the drama unfolds – the possibilities are endless.

  1. Travel Tickets


Travel can be very expensive. But when you’re in an LDR, you really can’t put a price on the feeling you get when you finally see your SO. So splurge a little and take that trip. Your wallet may feel a little emptier, but when you’re in your SO’s arms I promise you won’t regret the purchase.
