Holding down a long distance relationship can be challenging on a normal day of the week. Try throwing Valentine’s Day in there and you could have yourself a full blown recipe for loneliness. But just because it’s Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you have to throw the notion of romance out the door. You can still do sweet wonderful things to keep your connection and bond strong.

Check out some ideas on how to celebrate V-Day with that special someone even if their oceans a part.

  • Message in a bottle – Sending a sweet message in a bottle is a great way to woo your partner. No need to worry about your message taking years and years to arrive. Companies like Timeless Message will deliver it right to their door steps by Valentine’s Day. Just include the message you want on there and they’ll take care of the rest.
  • Pillow talk – Listen to your partner’s heartbeat real time with this sweet little invention. It’s the perfect way to feel their presence, no matter where they are.
  • Plan for a virtual date – Have a romantic candlelight dinner this V-Day even if you’re miles a part. With a virtual date, you will set a time to meet via video chat and dinner together. Both of you can grab your favorite cuisine and enjoy it with a bottle wine. You can even have your favorite music playing in the background.
  • Send a video message via email – You can be as naughty or nice with this as you want. Plan to record a video in advance of whatever you wish so when he or she wakes up in the morning, they’ll be surprised with the message.
