As we edge closer to Christmas, gifting is at the forefront of many people’s minds.
But for many long-distance couples, the last few months have already been an important time for gifting. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, many couples have been unable to see each other as frequently (or at all in some cases) – especially those living in different countries.
Not to mention, long-distance relationships are a common occurrence. In fact, ParcelHero carried out a survey and found that 40% of the UK have been in a long distance relationship. Sometimes you meet that special someone at a certain point in your life which doesn’t offer the chance to live in close proximity. With that in mind, it’s important to show that person, wherever they are, just how important they are to you.
When you’re unable to see your partner for a prolonged amount of time, a thoughtful gift can go a long way to express your affection. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant; a personalised jewellery gift can be small but touching, the perfect way to say “I’m thinking of you”!
So, without further ado, here are our top LDR gifts:
