12 Best Long Distance Relationship Gift Ideas for your Boyfriend

Whether it’s Valentine’s Day, Christmas, his Birthday, or your anniversary, you’ll find below some of the best long distance relationship gift ideas for your boyfriend.

These sentimental gifts are perfect for your long-distance boyfriend to celebrate a special occasion. They work well as going away gifts as well.

Etsy is always my go-to for sentimental gifts, as you’ll find plenty of cute options you can customize to make the gift even more special. Things there are also usually hand-crafted in the US by small companies, making it even more special (compared to crap from China).

When ordering from Etsy, consider shipping delays, especially for custom products that are typically made-to-order. If you’re looking for last-minute LDR gifts, consider ordering from Amazon (I’ve included a couple of options below).

For people who are into craft, most of the gifts below can easily be DIYed.

Two Maps Wall Art

A super cute gift for your boyfriend to celebrate your relationship, these type of custom wall arts are both thoughtful and sentimental. Most options feature 2 maps somehow linked together, with both your name.

Some will require a bit more work as you’ll need to print and frame them (you’ll just get a digital file) but you can also find a couple of sellers that will send you the printed and framed version.

Bond Touch Bracelets

BOND TOUCH Long Distance Touch Bracelets for Couples - Stay Connected Anytime, Anywhere - Unique Relationship Gifts, Ideal for Valentines Day - Single Tap Bracelet

For the high-tech couples, these connected bracelets are a must. Through the app, you can make each other’s device vibrate to mimic touch, letting the other know you’re thinking about them.

You can pick from different colors for the bracelet (you can get several and easily switch the band if you want) and for the metallic parts. The battery lasts around 4 days and the device is waterproof.

You can easily order one to your location and one to his if you’re not going to see each other.

Long Distance Touch Lamp

Friendship Lamp® Classic Design - Handmade in USA Wi-Fi Touch Lamp LED Light for Long-Distance, Connection, Relationship, Friendship, Gift, Over 200 Colors, App Setup - Set of 2

These touch lamps are probably the best gift for a long distance relationship. You both get one and, when you touch yours, the other’s light up, letting them know you’re thinking of them. You can also do this through their app.

They light up in a bunch of different colors. A fun thing to do is to agree what color means what, so you can kind of send each other secret messages, beyond the “I’m thinking of you”.

The lamps are made in the US.

Pull Out Photo Memory Box

Pull Out Photo Memory Box

A great keepsake to remember by the good times you’ve had together, add all the pictures you have of you and him and surprise him with a heartfelt gift.

We often don’t print pictures anymore and this is a great way for him to have something to remind him of you whenever he misses you.

You can customize the engraving at the top of the box if you want to, otherwise it will read “love”. The seller will print your photos and add them to the box, so if you want, you can have it shipped directly to him.

You each get one, with your state or country and a little love note.
