Whether an hour or an entire ocean separates you with your boyfriend, a long-distance relationship presents a challenge for even the most committed couples. Focus on the strength of your love, not the miles between you. Make the most of special occasions, such as birthdays, by giving your boyfriend a gift that suits your relationship.

Scavenger Hunt

Send your long-distance boyfriend on a scavenger hunt for his birthday. Send him a birthday package in the mail. Inside the package leave a message with instructions to his next location. Each location can be marked with a clue that leads him closer to the end of the scavenger hunt. Ask someone who lives in his area to leave the clues. You can also leave one gift at the location of each clue or have one main gift at the end of the hunt. Leave the clues at meaningful places such as your favourite restaurant or where you had your first kiss.

Countdown Gifts

Create a countdown gift for your long-distance boyfriend that leads up to his birthday. Send one gift each day before his birthday. Mail one gift each day for one month, one week or whatever amount of time you wish. It can be a simple love note or small gifts such as candy. On his actual birthday, give one large gift. Another ideas is to have a puzzle made that features a photo of the two of you together. Mail one piece of the puzzle each day before his birthday. One his birthday he can receive the final piece to the puzzle. On the back of the puzzle you can write a special message.

Mizpah Charm

Present your long-distance boyfriend a meaningful mizpah charm necklace or key chain for a birthday gift. Mizpah represents the emotional bond between people who are separated. The charm is in the form of a circle or heart that is broken in half. One half is kept by each person in the relationship. It often features the appropriate quote, "The Lord watch between me and thee when we are absent one from another."


Give your long-distance boyfriend the gift that means the most to him --- you. Plan a surprise or arranged visit to see your boyfriend. This priceless gift can mean more than any materialised gift. If you are unable to physically visit your boyfriend on his birthday, mail him a special framed photo of yourself. Other options include mailing a video with a birthday message or reading of a love poem or having a video chat with your man.
