Long-Distance Relationship Activities

When distance keeps you physically apart, finding ways to connect and create meaningful experiences becomes even more important for couples in long-distance relationships (LDR). Here are three fantastic activities that LDR couples can engage in when they can't see each other, bringing them closer and strengthening their bond:

Make a Bucket list

Especially when you cannot see your partner at the moment, you start to imagine all the wonderful activities you would like to do together. As soon as you get back to reality, it hurts, so why don't you fantasize a little bit more and, most importantly, share the ideas with your partner. This kind of daydreaming gives you the strength to endure harder times. It also creates hope and anticipation. So make a bucket list together that grows longer and longer with all the things you want to experience together. This customized bucket list book is perfect for this and has also your names on it's cover.

Try LDR Gadgets

The world is moving fast, especially in terms of technology, and every year we got new inventions that should make our lives more enjoyable. The LDR sector is no exception, in the last years a few really interesting gadgets were created, and maybe they can help you improve your long-distance relationship. The most exciting ones are long-distance sex toys which can be controlled from afar, no matter where you are. If that isn't futuristic enough, the next level are interactive sex toys that mirror the movement of your partner as if they are right in front of you.

Have Exciting Conversations

If there is not much going on in everyday life, it can quickly happen that you run out of things to say, and the conversation becomes dry. You need to hear the voice of the other person because it gives you a feeling of closeness, but sometimes you just have nothing to say to each other. For this reason, conversation cards were invented, filled with thought-provoking questions to inspire exciting conversations. These help to avoid awkward silence and give you new ideas to find great topics and connect better.

The Selfie Game

When we take a photo of ourselves, we always try to look as good as possible and sometimes even edit all the little details before we share it. However, this activity requires you to take selfies several times of the day without editing or taking ten shots until we like one. Extra points if you make your partner laugh, don't try to be perfect instead be silly, funny, and real. Send each other a selfie how confused you look when you just woke up, how you are eating your breakfast, or sitting at work or laying on the couch and cuddling the LDR Pillow you got from them. Every time your phone shows a notification, you will think about each other and feel like you are sharing your day.

Cooking Competition

Cooking together may not be possible in person, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy a friendly cooking competition from afar. Set a date and time, choose a recipe, and embark on a culinary adventure together. Each of you can gather the ingredients and follow the recipe simultaneously, sharing the process through video calls. Once the dishes are complete, it's time for the ultimate taste test and judgment. This activity allows you to showcase your creativity,  and culinary skills, all while enjoying delicious meals together virtually.

Virtual Couple's Spa Retreat

Who says you can't indulge in relaxation and pampering together while being apart? Plan a virtual couple's spa retreat to unwind, rejuvenate, and create a serene atmosphere of intimacy and tranquility. Coordinate a time when both of you can indulge in self-care activities. Prepare soothing baths, apply face masks, and play calming music in the background. Create a spa-like ambiance with one of our Naughty Candles allowing you both to immerse yourselves in a virtual oasis of relaxation.

Collect Your Couple Photos

Depending on how long you are together, there will be lots of couple photos, but most of the time, they are spread out in different places. Your phone, their phone, your previous phone, your cameras, and most importantly, in your Whatsapp and Facebook Chat. When you look into those places, you will most likely find many great memories and really great shots that you totally forgot about. Try to collect them in one big folder and share it with your loved one so that you can both add new photos to it. This can be done with several free cloud services like Google Drive, Dropbox, or Onedrive. They also have another positive side-effect, because they automatically make an online backup in case you lose your phone or a hard drive stops working. Make one folder with your favorites to find out which photos your partner likes the most. This is very helpful if you want to make them a personalized gift and you are not sure which ones to use. A great example for this would be our famous Romanic Couple Canvas which turns your best shots into a masterpiece. 

Create Beautiful Memories

After you collected all your photos, you can divide them into different folders like "first dates", "favorite photos", "first vacation", "road trip to cityname", this is optional, but it helps you find them quickly. What's even better than watching those photos on your screen is having them printed out. Fortunately, there are several creative ways to print out so you can make a beautiful gift out of them. One idea would be creating the popular Explosion Gift Box that you might have seen in some videos. You can also print out many small images and put them on your wall in the shape of a heart. Another way would be choosing your favorite photo and turning it into a Canvas, a cute Pillow, a cozy Blanket, or adding them to your Love Book. No matter how you use your photos, printing them out is always a great idea because it reminds you of that beautiful moment, every day.

Grow Plants

Get some seeds of a plant that you like, which is robust and lives for a long time. Both of you, get a pot and plant the seeds on the same day. Care for them well and give them water and love daily. After a few days, they will begin to rise from the soil and see the light of the world. Now it's time to take your first photos and share them with your long-distance partner. Every week you can update each other and watch how they grow bigger and stronger, just like your love. One day when you finally move in together, these plants will meet each other for the first time. They will be a living memory of this time and remind you about the challenges you overcame together.

Create Your Love Playlist

Music has a magical way of transcending distance and connecting people. Creating a shared playlist is a beautiful way to discover each other's musical tastes, share favorite songs, and express your emotions through music. Choose a theme, such as songs that remind you of each other or tracks that inspire love and longing. Collaborate on a playlist, adding songs that hold special meaning for both of you. Take turns sharing songs and discussing why they resonate with your relationship. Whenever you listen to the playlist, it will evoke cherished memories and feelings of closeness.  

Exchange Care Packages

Many of our customers order one of our long-distance gifts, and we send it directly to their partner. However, sometimes you want to send them more than one gift and make the surprise extra great. Get a medium-sized package and fill it with all the stuff that your partner will love. Some ideas: Get matching clothes that you wear at the same day, even if you are not together you know that your partner is wearing the matching piece. Before you put their piece into the package, have slept with so it has your scent and add a little of your perfume on it. One bracelet or keychain of a matching set, ideally customized with your names and your anniversary date. Your favorite photo prints or an item that was personalized with a photo of you. Some snacks that they really like. Seeds of the plant that you want to grow together. A necklace that expresses how you feel. Pillowcase so they have something to cuddle when they think of you. And don't forget to add a little note with some personal words. This will make them feel deeply loved and appreciated.
