The Christmas season is extremely dependent upon time spent with family, friends and loved ones for special events and other holiday celebrations. Therefore, being in a long distance relationship during the holidays is horribly lonely. Being out of town and alone make the holidays stressful on your long distance relationship, with frustrations often expressed against one another. However, there are many gifts that can show how much you miss him at Christmas, and express your enduring love despite the distance between you. Valuable gifts will help him recognize how well you know him and how deeply the two of you remain connected. Without spending an immense amount on a gift, you can show him how much he means to you.
The first gift option sends the message of your love and appreciation in a very simple and creative manner. We all know about sending anyone out of town a care package for a gift. However, a special touch added makes it a relationship delivery right to his front door. Considering those stresses and frustrations involved with spending the holidays alone, sending memories of your valuable relationship right there in one package is like touching his heart with your very own hand despite it being a long distance relationship.
Say you always liked to have your first cup of coffee together in the morning, and that may be a time he feels particularly lonely during the day. Send a personalized coffee cup in the long distance relationship package, along with the brand of coffee that you two always made in the morning. That will him smile first thing in the morning even though you aren’t there.
Maybe your weekend nights at home were spent watching a movie. Also, there is a favorite brand of popcorn or chips that you snack on together when watching your movies at home. So, include in your relationship delivery a copy of one or two of those movies that you like, along with a snack you always share.
And one last thing is the drink the two of you have in common and sipped together watching TV or when you made dinner at home. Either a certain type of liquor you both like or a bottle of wine you always share, include that in the relationship delivery as well. Take a picture of yourself holding up a drink like a “cheers” with a bubble quote message attached. The two of you are having a drink together despite your long distance relationship.
Another idea is to order a gift online, and this can be anything that you know he hopes to get sometime soon. Make it a surprise! Something he would never expect to receive from you because you currently have a long distance relationship. Most all websites allow shipping around the world, so whatever you order can be shipped to his location. Whether there is a certain game or concert he wants to attend, or maybe a pair of shoes or other item he has wanted for a long time. Before Christmas there is plenty of time to catch some hints of what he is dying to have, so go for it!
Now, the best thing is to make sure it is a surprise, and that he gets it sometime and someplace he is truly not expecting it. Maybe he will be spending Christmas with friends or family nearby, or you know he will be in the office at least part of the day on Christmas Eve. So, the key is to schedule the delivery to the proper time and place so that it will be there for him to open. The greatest surprise will be the fact that his gift from you is already under the tree at someone else’s house, or has already been delivered to his office when he walks in the door. Maybe you have already sent him a Christmas card directly so he would not be expecting it! Surprise is key!
Next, one of the greatest unexpected surprises could be your arrival for Christmas. Maybe you initially didn’t have time to head out of town for the holiday, but some time cleared up in your schedule. All it takes is a little research to find out the location where he will be and when they are having a party. Maybe you arrive the day before and spend one night in a hotel or with someone else, but place yourself next to the Christmas tree as the ultimate surprise gift!
Wear some tinsel or ribbon as a scarf and maybe tie a bow on top of your head. YOU are the gift of a lifetime! You will get to personally resolve those feelings of loneliness and despair that can come from nights in bed alone during the holidays. Show up with a smile and a kiss, and bring him the greatest happiness for the holiday.
Sometimes a great distance can involve more shipping expense than planned, or the gifts you want to buy for him may just be a little out of your price range. So, there are plenty of do-it-yourself gifts that at least send your love and emotion with personal emotion and effort. More than spending a lot on a gift, he will appreciate that you are showing your thought and love during such a lonely time. Like the relationship delivery in the package noted above, come up with some memories around the house or simple items to send right into his hands, letting him know he is on your mind.
One option is to bake possibly his favorite cookie, brownie or another treat to let him know you want him to be happy and that you still remember everything he likes. Additionally, to include additional memories, see if you have some photos or other items laying around the house, relics of your relationship and special times you had together. Maybe they are pictures of a trip you took together, or the two of you together last year at Christmas. Maybe you can uniquely decorate the lid of the container you pack those favorite treats in, adding a little flare to your gift. To top it off you can hand make your own card to place inside the box, sending your exact words for the Christmas love you wish to send him.
Finally, it is easy to let sex fall off the globe while you spend so much time at a distance from one another. While we always hear “sex doesn’t mean love,” we all know that loving relationships involve a certain amount of sex and that must be kept up at least to a certain extent while you are apart.
So, take some time to keep up with his sexual fantasies and desires, even while you are apart and should gain hints from texts or emails he sends. Maybe there are some things that you were reluctant to do in the past and missing him in the present has made you a little more advisable to sexual openness. As you feel this way, your agreement with his desires could be an additional part of your Christmas gift, making him think of you during those times when he is forced to complete his own pleasure alone in the bedroom.
Whether you have a new piece of lingerie he would like, or one he has always liked, take a picture or two to include in the package. Maybe it’s an image of you doing something he has always liked with you. Everybody masturbates, and you know he has a job of his own while being so far away from you. But, there is a kicker! The two of you can complete this act together with interactive couple sex toys that you can use during one of those virtual experiences. Three of these options include Lovense, Vibease and Kiiroo long distance couple sex toys for use on those virtual dates that you schedule regularly. Keep things as exciting and erotic as possible in the bedroom.
No matter the distance, the sensuality, intimacy, emotion and sexuality of your relationship should never die. Just work at it a little at a time. There is no need to let the Christmas season be as lonely as he fears it will be. The most important thing about these gifts is to keep the essentials of your long distance relationship in the gift. It’s not just about his likes, but about the two of you together. As a couple, you know him and make him recognize that during such a difficult time. Remain a couple despite the distance!
