Being in a long-distance relationship is hard. Both the partners need to put in a lot of effort to keep the relationship going. Technology plays an important part in bridging the gap through communication, be it oceans apart or states apart. Apart from being in touch with each other through calls, texting, video calls, zoom calls, face time, etc., you can also make your partner feel special and loved by sending him/her a gift that will make them feel close and loved when you miss each other. Here are some gift ideas that you can gift your loved one.



Long-distance Touch Lamp: Also known as Friendship Lamps, these come in a set of two or more Wi-Fi-connected touch control table lamps that can communicate with each other. Touch one lamp and every other lamp in that network will light up in the color of the first lamp - instantaneously and simultaneously! It’s a fantastic way to send a simple ‘hey’ or ‘thinkin’ of you’ without saying it in words, either over the phone or by text. It is a very powerful form of non-verbal communication that gets the message across at the speed of light - literally!
