With Valentine’s Day approaching and an inevitable amount of dinner specials and flower bouquet deals, some couples will have to celebrate their love miles – or even oceans – apart. For many long distance relationships can be tough, and something like Valentine’s Day can seem like an extra challenge. But it doesn’t need to be! Even from far away whether you’re traveling on business, trucking cross-country, or just not there to whisper ‘I Love You’ into their ear you can still demonstrate your sweetheart how much you care. Here are some ideas for celebrating Valentine’s Day that will keep your long distance relationship healthy and ticking.
Digital Wake-up Date
Yes, you can’t prepare breakfast in bed for your Valentine, but they can still wake up to the sound of your voice or see your loving face on the morning of Valentine’s Day. Simply ring up your sweetheart with a hotel-worthy wake-up call, skype them, email a Valentine’s e-card, post a romantic message on their Facebook wall, or do all at once to show that your feelings are always online, even when your honey is not.
Valentine’s Day Surprise
When you are far away and can’t bring your sweetheart flowers, someone else can do it for you! With numerous online florists and gift delivery companies ordering Valentine’s Day gift for your special someone is easy as 1-2-3. Choose online a stunning bouquet of their favorite flowers, compliment it with a delicious chocolate or cake, a bottle of bubbly, jewelry, cute plush toy or any other romantic gift that will be delivered to your recipient’s doorstep no matter where they are.
Spread the sweetness throughout the whole day by starting out with a Valentine’s Day text message: “Today, I’ll send you 10 things I like the most about you!”, or famous love poem “How do I love thee, Let me count the ways”. Then, start sending texts one at a time saying why or how much you love your significant other. Whether you choose to send famous romantic quotations or racy one-liners it should sound like you and fit your style. Spreading out your gift over time this way will make your long-distance partner feel special all day long.
Long-distance Movie Date
You don’t talk to your honey during an actual movie date anyway (and, if you do, shush!), so this time, since you are unable to go for a movie date, choose your favorite romantic movie and try to watch it at the same time. Go for timeless classics like ‘The Philadelphia Story’, ‘Gone with the Wind’, ‘Casablanca’ or modern romantic comedies. This will give you a feeling of being connected and something to discuss later on on the phone or when you meet in person.
Take advantage of the fact that you can’t be there in person by expressing your feelings in a way you will be too embarrassed to do face-to-face. Surprise them with a call and sing your Valentine a lovely song or recite a funny limerick and keep your fingers crossed it wasn’t recorded for embarrassing posterity. If you’re the brave type, you can also leave your romantic message on your Valentine’s voicemail. Depending on how well it’s received, they can save and replay it whenever your sweetheart needs to hear your voice.
Skype Dinner by Candlelight
Many couples share a romantic dinner on Valentine’s Day. With Skype – an amazing invention for the long-distance relationship – you can do just the same! You can still have a romantic dinner face-to-face, even if you can’t hold hands. Pick a time for dinner, agree you’ll both light a candle, and either surprise and choose your own meals or plan on eating the same dish, especially if it’s something meaningful for both of you. As far as intimacy (and your bill!) goes, it may actually beat that quiet table in the corner of some fancy overpriced restaurant.
