Gift Ideas for Her (LDR)

Updated on August 1, 2016

Showing affection while your loved one is far away is crucial for long-distance relationships. Sometimes it is hard to find decide what to give to your significant other, especially if you are separated by distance. Here are some great gift ideas for your loved one who is far, far away.

Personalized Gifts

When choosing a gift, it is best to find something that you and her can relate to. For example, if you are in the military and sent overseas while your wife stayed home to take care of your family, you may decide to leave her with her own pair of dog tags. Personalized gifts are special because there is nothing else in the world like it. She will love a gift that is made exclusively for her. Heart Press is a great place to find and shop for personalized gifts in the Philippines.

Couples Items

Having something that you can both share and use even though you are far apart keeps you constantly thinking of each other. Some great examples of these are couples watches, couples rings, couples shirts, or even couples pillow cases. Keep that special someone thinking of you always and let her know that you will be thinking of her more too now that y'all both share a special item together.

Something Artistic

While separated from each other, it is often difficult to always send items by mail. Take a chance to be creative by drawing a picture or making a video of yourself singing a song or playing the guitar. Even if you are not good at anything, take the time to become good at something. She will notice the effort you made for her, and it will be greatly appreciated. It is a great opportunity to show her that you can give her something from the bottom of your heart.


Skype and other video chatting services play a common role in long-distance relationships. Often, people get tired of the scenery and run out of things to say. There's no need to always force it, and it's always good to change things up a bit. Set time aside and plan something romantic. Watch the same movie together or prepare the same meal. It will give you the feeling that you are closer to each other, as well as give you more to talk about.


All women love to shop, and women know what they want like. Send them some money and tell her to buy herself something nice that she really wants. This usually isn't considered the most thoughtful gift to some people, but she will feel spoiled and appreciate the gesture. This works especially well if you have reached a point where you no longer know what to give. It will also give her a chance to have some time to herself doing something she enjoys.


I saved this one for last because it is probably the first thing that people think of when it comes to gift ideas for your lady. However, I don't think anyone can ever go wrong with a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers. Choosing the right flowers and maybe even sending a little extra something sweet with it almost always makes a woman joyful. Just be sure not to overdue this one. Sending flowers all of the time may give her the impression that you have no imagination, and may eventually get tiring. Be sure to use this gift sparingly, as it is overly popular and expected, but is sometimes carelessly overused by many people. Consider her favorite colors and flowers while arranging her bouquet. This is one gift that is perfect for any occasion. You can shop online for flowers at
