Trying to keep your love alive across the miles can be trying on both sides and with Valentine's Day around the corner it can be especially tough. If you're in a long-distance relationship here are a few tips to make Valentine's Day special for you and your other half.
Send a care package
Whether they're across the country temporarily because of college or work a personalized care package is a great way to send them some love for Valentine's Day. Gather a few of their favorite items that remind them of home like candies, a movie you both love, and of course a framed photo of yourself , and package it up with a thoughtful note and send it on it's way.
Video chat a romantic dinner
Long-distance relationships can be difficult, but in this day and age technology is there to make it easy again. If you're going to be away from your sweetheart on Valentine's Day plan a romantic dinner and video chat the entire date. You'll be able to enjoy dinner "together" from start to finish even across the world. However, if it's across the world someone may be enjoying a romantic breakfast while the other enjoys dinner.
Plan a surprise trip
If you can afford it, why not make a surprise trip to see your main squeeze? Some airlines offer inexpensive fares for last minute trips if you're lucky you could snag a great deal on a round-trip ticket. Better yet, if they're close enough you could plan a road trip - it would be much less expensive and there could be a lot less hassle since you won't have to worry about airport security.
