Long-distance relationships can be very challenging. Being apart from your boyfriend can make you feel lonely, and sometimes insecure in the relationship.
Planning a romantic gift (and giving it to your boyfriend) is a great way to show him he is always on your mind, and that you miss him, and love him.
Special long distance relationship gifts are sure to put a great smile on his face and remind him how lucky he is – to have you as his girlfriend.
Here you’ll find my top recommendations for romantic, unique, and heart-filled gift ideas for your long-distance boyfriend – to keep your relationship strong, happy, and healthy.
19 Long Distance Relationship Gift Ideas & Surprises – for Him
Sending your guy a special gift or surprise is one of the most romantic things you can do for your boyfriend who is far away from you.
(👉 If you’re worried about him drifting away and wondering how to handle your LDR – see how to make your LDR relationship work!)
Here’s what you’ll find here:
Surprise Gifts for Your Long Distance Boyfriend
1. Webcam light – to See Him Better
In a long distance relationship, couples always chat online or send each other videos. If you want to see him more clearly, give him a simple webcam light that creates the perfect lighting – anywhere he is.
2. Customized Couples Quote mug
Be the first thing on your boyfriends’ mind every single morning with a quote mug. Even better, get a pair of mugs – one for you as well. In the image above is an example of an LDR couples mug you can customize before ordering.
And here’s another beautiful set:
3. Dual-zone watch
This gift is practical as well as thoughtful. Send your love a watch set to both your time zone and his. Instead of constantly calculating the time difference between you, all he needs to do is look at his watch.
And whenever he checks the time, he’ll wonder what you’re up to and think about you.
Here’s another good-lookin’ one:
4. I Love You More Throw Blanket
Even if you can’t be there in person to warm him up with your hugs, you can still keep him warm in other ways.
When you give him this cute I Love You More red blanket, he could close his eyes and think of cuddling with you – all throughout the cold winter. A great way to warm more than his heart!
5. Personalized Coordinates Keychain
In my opinion, a customized coordinates keychain is one of the best long-distance relationships gift ideas for your boyfriend.
This way he carries you with him – everywhere. And it is a lasting reminder of how far you are willing to go to make your relationship work.
6. Map Wall Art
Highlight the location where your boyfriend wishes and craves he could be (with you – of course!). Just get a map wall art and paint a heart shape over your location, or attach a cute picture of you – smiling and reminding him that you are always waiting for him.
7. Long-Distance Relationship Color-Changing Mug
Here’s a unique “I miss you” mug that I absolutely love. It looks like a regular ordinary coffee mug, but when you pour coffee into it, the color lightens and a personalized message pops up, along with the location of you and him. See the picture above to read the message.
On the other side of the mug, you can choose from 3 different designs.
8. Personalized Socks
This is a unique, cute, and heart (and feet) warming LDR surprise for your boyfriend – guaranteed to surprise and make him smile.
You can personalize these special, high-quality men’s socks with your own text. You can write something funny, or romantic, or even a little sexy.
Long-distance Relationship Pillows
How about being the last thing on your boyfriend’s mind before he drifts off to sleep?
His and Her Couple pillowcases let him know that you are always thinking of him.
I love the BoldLoft couple pillows. They are not only minimalist and beautiful but a great reminder that you are always together – day and night – in spirit.
Long Distance Bracelets & Rings
I love LDR jewelry. No matter the distance between you two, you always have a piece of him with you. It’s one of the most romantic things you can do for a long-distance boyfriend.
Long Distance Bracelets
Here’s another beautiful one:
And here’s a cute long distance coordinates bracelets you can see on Amazon (and personalize of course):
Long Distance Couples Necklaces
His and hers necklaces are one of the best I miss you gifts you can find, and symbolically, you both wear it very close to your heart.
The one in the picture below can be customized with your countries and a heart painted over your city. Each of you gets his half of the necklace – and together – you are one. 😍
Long Distance Rings
In the picture, you can see a couples coordinates/name ring set – made from delicate 16K silver gold rose gold -plated name bar you and him. You can easily find both your location coordinates here – or you can choose to engrave anything else on the rings.
I think it’s beautiful.
Here’s another cute LDR ring, inspired by Game of Thrones, engraved with “my sun and stars” on one ring, and with “moon of my life” on the other:
Long Distance Keychains
A long distance keychain may not seem like the most romantic thing to do for your boyfriend, but it is something that he will carry around with him all day. I love some of the options you’ll see below:
