Gifts for long distance friends to say you miss the shit out of them

Long distance gifts for friends and lovers
"The Tipsy Mermaid" gift set from Thoughtfully

Got a friend moving away? Going to college? Teaching abroad? Or maybe you're in a long distance relationship that needs some care via air mail? Whatever the case, sometimes you want to send some love, some cheer, some sympathy, or an "I cannot wait to see your fucking face" to someone far away.

We've got postal service than can deliver your feelings (be they card, food, or booze variety) to anywhere you want. I went a-hunting to see if I could find some suitably awesome gifts for long distance friends to give you some ideas.

  1. My bestie just moved to MN from MA over the summer, and this is perfect!

    It's not on the list, but I'm also loving the idea of Greetabl – looks fun and pretty affordable, plus they have stuff I can send to her kiddos, too. Would love to see what other fun suggestions people have!

    • I sent a Greetabl to my long-distance bestie! It was fun to customize, there's all sorts of options for different occasions. I'd definitely use it again.

  2. Love this! Thanks for the ideas! One of my besties moved to Germany this year, so I'm trying to figure out a good Christmas plan.
