14 Gifts You Can Order Online and Have Delivered for Valentine’s Day

Being in a long-distance relationship is never easy, but the toughest day of the year for couples to be apart has to be Valentine’s Day. On a holiday when everyone else seems to be going out on extravagant dates and posting pictures with mushy captions on social media, you can’t help but feel a little lonely knowing that your S.O. is halfway across the world.

If you’re spending Valentine’s Day miles away from your significant other this year, you should know that a surprising number of Americans have experienced your frustration. In 2005, 14-15 million people in the U.S. claimed to be in a long-distance relationship, while 75% of engaged couples reported that their relationship had been long-distance at one time. That’s a pretty encouraging success rate! 

Consider this, too: with so many technological advancements in communication, there’s never been a better time for long-distance couples. In this Wired article, Arielle Pardes uses examples from her own relationship to demonstrate how apps and online services can foster closeness between couples living apart. Being able to quickly and easily exchange messages, playlists, and gifts made her and her boyfriend feel like they were still sharing a life while separated by an ocean.

Having a sweet gift delivered to your long-distance boyfriend or girlfriend for Valentine’s Day is a beautiful way to connect with them from afar. Even though you can’t physically be there, sending a thoughtful token of your affection can help you feel a little closer to them on the most romantic day of the year. 

Ordering gifts online is definitely faster and easier than ever, but you should still put some thought into your purchase. In fact, considering you won’t be able to spend the day together, you should try to make your gift extra special. 

Personalization is an excellent way to make a gift stand out because it allows you to create something specifically for your S.O. When they receive their custom-made present, they’ll see the extra effort you went to and feel incredibly loved.

A Succulent Gift Box
