Sometimes long-distance romantic relationships are a necessity. Romantic gifts for a long-distance partner should help him or her feel closer to you, despite the physical distance. While romantic partners in the same area can treat each other in person with fancy dinners and other shared activities, a long-distance partner must be more creative. Whether your separation is brief or will go on for a long time, a few romantic ideas can go a long way.

A Year of Candy
If you've ever had an Advent calendar at Christmastime---the box with 25 candies inside, one for each day of December up to Christmas---you will already understand this idea. Give your sweetheart 365 candies, one for each day of the year. Ask her to think of you each time she eats a candy. Alternatively, give her one candy for each of the days until she will see you again.
Buy him a membership in an item-of-the-month club. There are many kinds, from wine or beer to flowers to chocolate to more specialised items like hot sauce. Subscriptions generally last from three to 12 months. This way he will think of you every time the item arrives at his door.
What do people far away from the ones they love crave? More of the ones they love. A memory book full of photos of the two of you, short written recollections of times that you have shared and small personal things, such as a lock of hair, can help ease the pain of separation.
If the two of you are apart but you both have access to the Internet, consider purchasing a webcam for your sweetheart if she doesn't already have one. Make the gift more personal by including a copy of a movie that you both like (making sure you also have a copy) and some popcorn and candy. Include a note saying that you are "taking her to the movies" and watch the film together while connected on the webcam, you watching your copy and she watching hers.
