Long Distance Birthday Gifts for Him
There are many ways for a long-distance couple to stay close. (Brand X Pictures/Brand X Pictures/Getty Images)

A long-distance relationship requires sacrifice on many levels. One of the hardest aspects of a long-distance romance is that you won't be there for day-to-day living with your other half or for significant days such as his birthday. But just because you aren't there in person doesn't mean you can't show him how much he means to you on his birthday.


Make your boyfriend smile by giving him a scrapbook. A scrapbook of your favourite moments in the relationship will help him remember the great times you've shared. Use memorabilia in the scrapbook such as photos of the two of you, movie tickets, your telephone bill highlighting his number or a menu from your favourite restaurant. At the end of the scrapbook leave a few blank pages with the words "The best is yet to come" at the top of the pages. A lipstick print also makes a romantic addition to the blank pages. These blank pages will show him that you are looking forward to sharing things in the future with him.

Homemade Gift

A homemade gift is always a good way to touch a guy's heart. If you want to give your boyfriend a homemade gift, send him a baked treat such as brownies or cookies. Or knit or crotchet him a sweater, socks or a hat made with yarn in his favourite colour. Or if you have sewing skills, sew a pair of pajama bottoms, boxers or a T-shirt. Or if you have artistic skills, draw or paint him a romantic picture.

Matching Gifts

Buy gifts that have a long-distance relationship theme. There are products available for long-distance couples such as matching pillowcases, bracelets, coffee mugs, pillow cases, T-shirts and sweatshirts. Your boyfriend will enjoy knowing that, although far apart, the two of you are using the same gift. Send him a photo of you wearing the matching couple's clothing item. Give him a matching item with a long-distance theme that says "soul mate," "love" or "no matter the miles."

Surprise Visit

Since the best gift in a long-distance relationship is your physical presence, arrange a surprise trip to see your boyfriend. Arrange a special date night once you get there, including a romantic dinner. If you are unable to be there in person, send him a video of you with a birthday message. Or send him framed photos of yourself all dressed up for him. You can also record yourself reciting a classic love poem or read him a poem that you wrote.
