23 Best Long Distance Relationship Gifts for Him!


Touch Bond Bracelets 

These are special high-tech bracelets that will allow you and your partner to “feel” each other at a distance! One of the coolest long distance gifts for him.

This is amazing technology that might be exactly what you’re looking for! Here is a product of ingenuity born through necessity: it is smartly designed for both form and function. And it can cure some of that feeling of anxiety to find a way to feel close to your beloved when you are miles and miles apart!

The Touch Bond Bracelet is about as good as it gets for connecting in real time, discreetly, with a light little buzz of your love. With this device, any time you want to let your partner know you are thinking about him, you press the button on your matching bracelet and your partner will feel a pulsation on his wrist.

All you need to do, is buy a set, both of you then download an app to your phones, set up your profiles, and it uses Wifi and Bluetooth technology to communicate!

Every time you push the button on your bracelet, your partner’s bracelet will vibrate and flash a color so they know you are thinking about them. (You can change the settings on the app to make it vibrate without light or color in case you go into a meeting.)

The bracelets come in several handsome styles, often resembling a sleek exercise step-counting band, but there are more elegant varieties as well, made out of leather or precious metals.

The only draw back with the technology is you need to be near Wifi and have the app open on your phone to work, but that’s a small price to pay for the encouragement and closeness this device can bring to your long distance relationship.

Long Distance Relationship Bracelets

These bracelets are similar to the Touch Bond bracelets, except without the technology. The come in sets as well.

There are many styles out there. One example is two puzzle pieces that fit together, another is a yin/yang design.

You can also have your initials engraved with a heart motif, or use a quote that is meaningful to you. Then every time you look at your matching bracelets you will think of how much you love and miss each other and know your partner is wearing it too.

Long Distance Relationship Key Chain

Keychains come in sets as well, so each partner carries one half. A really cute long distance relationship gift.

A popular design is the map with a heart in each partner’s specific location. So if you live in California, and your partner is in New York, you can choose a design with a map of the USA that has two hearts on it displaying your two locations.

Other ideas are adding charms to keychains of things your partner loves, where you can choose the charms yourself. Engraving your initials would be another great idea!

Long Distance Light Lamps

This is a sweet way to let your partner know you are thinking of them.

They are called Long Distance Light Up Lamps and are are sold in sets of 2 or more. They work when they are attached to Wifi.

You can send your loved one a light lamp and once they’re both set up, every time you think of each other, you can touch the lamp and your partner’s lamp will light up no matter how far away they are!

Most can be programmed for different colors for specific people, so if you wanted to use this to say hi to your whole family, you could! Red for your wife, blue for your son, green for your daughter, and so on.

It is also a very romantic way to connect privately with your beloved so only they will know. You can use it to say goodnight, for example, or good morning to see if the other is awake!

Because you can program the colors and the timing on it, you could assign certain colors to convey different things, like being happy or sad or “missing you”.

Long Distance Light Lamps are a wonderful gift that can be a fun and romantic way to keep in touch throughout the day and night.

Distance Phone Covers

Did you know you can order long distance phone covers with maps of countries or states on the back that have a heart on the location of your beloved?

Pretty cool stuff!

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a reminder of your loved one on the back of your phone so you can see it all the time? Maybe you can have two cases made so they match (perhaps one is more masculine and one is a more feminine version.) 

Long Distance Relationship Pillows

We all love a good pillow, but these pillows go beyond that!

If you are looking for something special to buy for your SO, a relationship pillow is a cool idea.

A special long distance relationship pillow gives you something to hug and to rest your tired head on that symbolizes the love for your partner when you two are miles apart.

These also come in many designs showing each partner’s location with hearts in between or drawings of figures of two people holding up cups to their ears with string in between them.

Some come in regular pillow size, and some as body pillows or you can get a simple throw pillow size for your sofa.

You can also go ‘all the way’ and buy Boyfriend Pillows and Girlfriend Pillows! These come in the shape of the torso of a man or a woman with one arm to wrap around you.

Coordinates Bracelets

These are bracelets custom made with the geographical coordinates of your choice engraved on them.

Do you two have one special place that sums up your love for each other with the memory it brings? One place in the world that solidified your life together as a couple?

Why not find out the exact coordinates of where it happened, and have them printed on a lovely bracelet for your partner?

These bracelets come in many materials, from leather to silver and gold, you can find any style to suit your tastes.

Make a his and hers (or a hers and hers or his and his) set and you will always have this bracelet to wear that will remind you of the wonderful memories you share together and the hope you will be by each other’s sides again very soon.

Grow a girlfriend

This is a great stag gift that can be used as a gag gift for your boyfriend! Send him a Grow Your Own Girlfriend in the mail!

You just add water and the girlfriend will begin to grow in 2 hours and then grow to full size in 72 hours! Later, you can watch it shrink as it dries out — then water it again and watch it grow!

A silly and fun gift that gives and gives.


I miss your face teddy

I Miss Your Face Teddy – Send your partner a sweet little stuffed teddy bear holding a heart that says “I miss your face!”

Custom Photo Blanket 

What a great way to remember your beloved then to custom order a photo blanket which you can cover with pictures of your wonderful times together.

You can order these in whatever blanket material you like, from cotton to chenille, and then add as many pictures as you like to make a collage.

You can also use one photo for a giant portrait of the two of you together. A great snuggly way to feel close.


Long Distance Gift Box

There are two ways you can do this. You can buy a beautiful box and fill it with lovely things you know your partner will enjoy, or you can buy a pre-made box with pre-chosen meaningful little momentos and romantic phrases on it to signify your love.

Another variation on this is the traditional care package with presents and food treats.

You can also make a DIY box yourself, using your imagination or ideas off of Pinterest. Present it to your loved one filled with momentos like concert tickets or photos or shells from that romantic walk you two took on the beach.

DIY Explosion Box

If you’re crafty and you want to make something special for your partner, why not try making an Explosion Box?

They are multilayered handmade boxes with personalized touches on every square inch, which you can decorate with paper and scrapbook embellishments, to show him how much you love him.

They are designed so the layers “explode” when you open the box, and a cool array of colors and patterns dazzles the eyes, with a special gift you choose for him as a centerpiece.
