You can either put your intentions in your own bracelet or, when you’re together, you can write your intentions to put in each other’s bracelets. Perhaps that intention is about when you’ll close the distance?

Made from beautiful natural stones, you can choose from black lava stone or brown tiger’s eye for men or one of these stunning options for women:

Light up your partner’s home with your love thanks to these FriendLamps.com Friendship Lamps.

The lamps sync via your wifi and internet connections, so when one of you touches your lamp, the other will light up in the chosen color.

With up to 10 colors to choose from, you can assign meanings to various colors. For example, they could mean:

Since the lamps use USB charging cables, you can use your Friendship Lamps anywhere in the world without needing a power adaptor.

3. Hey Bracelet Couples Set

Long Distance Touch Bracelets by Hey Bracelet

Do you miss your partner’s touch the most when you’re apart? With the Hey Bracelet Couples Set, you and your partner can “touch” each other from a distance.

The bracelets connect via Bluetooth to the Hey App. When one of you touches your bracelet, a small motor on the other bracelet pulls in part of the band, gently squeezing the wrist of the wearer.

Available in white and black with a repeating “H” logo, these bracelets look and feel like a high-end fashion accessory.

4. Kissing Mugs

Kissing Mugs

Is coffee life for you and your partner? If you answered yes, you will both adore these Kissing Mugs.

Apart, each mug is adorable, but when you get to be together, the mugs fit into the perfect kiss with handles that form a heart.

A hand-applied glaze ensures that each mug is unique, just like your love for each other.

While hand-washing ensures a longer lifespan, these mugs can also go on the top rack of the dishwasher.

5. Long Distance Friendship Lamps by FILIMIN

Let your partner know you’re thinking of them with a single tap using FILIMIN’s Long Distance Friendship Lamps.

If you like the look of Tiffany lamps or stained glass, you’ll appreciate their original, Classic design, or for a rustic wood look, Mid-Century Modern is a stylish choice.

What’s cool is that you and your partner can each get different FILIMIN models, and they’ll still connect with each other!

Whichever style you choose, touching one lamp lights up the other, no matter how far apart you are. By default, the lamp will stay lit for an hour and a half, but you can change the settings to keep it lit for up to 24 hours.

6. Long Distance Friendship Frame by FILIMIN

Now, you can combine the fun of a touch lamp and the function of a picture frame with the FILIMIN Long Distance Friendship Frame.

We love the versatility of the frame, because it can be hung on a wall or sat on a flat surface, it can be horizontal or vertical, and it can hold a 4” x 6” or 5” x 7” photo.

It’s worth noting that all FILIMIN products are made with North American plugs, so you may need an adaptor if you or your partner lives overseas.

7. Couples Mixtape Pillows

Do you remember the days of creating mixtapes? Relive that nostalgia with these Couples Mixed Tape Pillows.

Both sides are customizable, so you can add just the right message for your partner. Put your names on the front and a special message on the back, like “I’ll always love you,” or “Together since 20XX,” or “Happy Anniversary.”

These pillows are also made from polyester, which makes them machine washable, and perfect for either indoor or outdoor use.

8. Bond Touch Couples Bracelets

Want a sentimental way to let your partner know you’re thinking of them? Brighten their day by sending a “touch” with Bond Touch Couples Bracelets.

When one of you touches your bracelet, the other will vibrate and light up in the color of your choice. Some might say it’s even faster than texting an emoji!

You can tap the bracelets up to ten times, which is cool for creating codes and custom messages. Maybe one tap means “I’m home”, three taps means “I miss you”, and ten taps could mean “I miss you like crazy!”.

The bracelets come with black bands, but there are other colors available like pink sand, twilight blue, emerald green, and gray stone.

The sound of your partner’s voice is precious. Now, you can carry a visual of that sound with these Custom Soundwave Couples Necklaces.

After you email a 10 to 15 second sound clip, Gergin Martinov Siderov will use the sound wave pattern from the recording to create two necklaces. One of you gets the sound wave, and the other gets the bit the wave was cut from.

Gergin has also made the necklaces available in white, rose or yellow gold finishes and you can select chain lengths from 14” to 20”.

10. Mountain Promise Rings

Mountain Promise Rings

If there “Ain’t no mountain high enough” to stand in the way of your love, you’ll adore these Mountain Promise Rings.

What’s cool is that these couple’s rings feature a mountain cut out of one ring, which is mounted onto the other. We think they’re the perfect reminder that the distance between you is only a small hurdle to overcome.

While they are made from silver, you can have them finished in gold or rose gold, and are available in ring sizes from 4 to 14.

11. LoveBox Heart Messenger by Marie Poulle and Jean Gregoire

How do you combine a text message with a physical gift? With the Heart Messenger by LoveBox.

When you send a message through the LoveBox mobile app, the heart on the front of this adorable box spins until you lift the lid to read the message inside. The message only stays as long as the lid is open, making each message temporary and precious.

See a demonstration of the spinning heart here.

The story behind LoveBox is truly inspiring. Jean Gregoire came up with the idea when he left his fiancée, Melodie, in France while he studied at MIT in Boston. He wanted a unique way to send her messages. Now, your long distance relationship gets to benefit from his!

Just because you’re apart, doesn’t mean you can’t flaunt your couple’s love. Celebrate your “taken” status with these Her King & His Queen Matching Couples Shirts.

There are many different shirt sizes and styles are available, including tank tops, women’s V-necks, and unisex. We love an inclusive product, and the unisex style has the widest selection of sizes, ranging from XS to 4XL.

A few sample prompts include:

18. Max 2 & Nora: Couples Sex Toys by Lovense

One of the most difficult things about being apart is the lack of sexual intimacy. Bring some of that intimacy back with the help of Max 2 & Nora, the connected sex toys for couples by Lovense.

These aren’t your average sex toys…

They communicate with and control each other, so when one partner changes their tempo, it affects the speed and intensity of the other.

Add in the ability to video chat through the Lovense Remote App while using the toys, and it’s as close as you can get to the real thing, no matter the distance between you.

Max 2 is designed for men and Nora is designed for women. One thing we love about Lovense is that two Max 2s or two Noras can also connect to each other. Hooray for LGBTQ-friendly sex toys!

19. Onyx+ & Pearl 2: Connected Sex Toys by Kiiroo

A G-spot vibrator and a male stroker that communicate with each other from anywhere in the world? Yes, please!

With Onyx+ & Pearl 2 by Kiiroo, your time apart can feel closer than ever.

Similar to Max 2 and Nora, as you increase the speed of one toy, the other one increases in intensity. This doesn’t feel like solo play anymore when your partner is controlling your device!

When time zones or busy schedules make it tough to connect with your partner, you can also connect Onyx+ and Pearl 2 with virtual content.

20. Lush 2 by Lovense

Are you into the idea of your partner controlling your pleasure when you’re going about your day? You get just that with Lush 2 by Lovense.

While Lush 2 can’t connect with other Lovense devices, your partner can control it with the Lovense Remote App from anywhere in the world. If things get a bit too intense you still maintain some control with an easy-to-access power button.

It’s also worth noting that Lush 2 is completely waterproof, and the motor is whisper-quiet making it perfect for the bath or shower.

21. 100 Movies Scratch Off Poster

Now that there are ways to stream content together, choose your next movie night based on this 100 Movies Scratch Off Poster.

If your favorite date night is watching movies, making your way through these 100 iconic films will get you through quite a few evenings until you can watch movies in person together again.

You and your partner may have already seen “Jurassic Park” and “The Lord of the Rings” together, but what about “3 Idiots,” “Amelie,” or “Apocalypse Now”?

What’s cool is that you’ll find new favorites by scratching your way through.
