11 Amazing Ways To Celebrate Valentine's Day When In A Long Distance Relationship

Long distance relationships are always looked down upon with pity. The poor chaps can’t even see each other!.. Have to be alone day after day even being in a relationship! And the classic… Awww….! Give it a break! Long distance relationships aren’t as bad and impractical as they may seem to be. When the love is strong, a little distance doesn’t matter, isn’t it? So, hop down the misery rail and gear up to celebrate this Valentine’s Day with your sweetheart even if he/she may be miles away.

1. The Old Way

This may be the oldest trick in the book but is evergreen… Send her chocolates and flowers. And mind you not just any flowers… They should be long stemmed ‘red’ roses.. Not pink, not orange no other damn shade of red… Only deep red!! I know you have heard this from your girlfriend before but that’s only because It’s A Must! Phew… You get this right and you may get some good dirty talk at night. Promise.

2.  Get Help from her Siblings

There can be nothing more beautiful and magical than her or even him waking up to a room full of… (OK not full but at least a single bouquet of) roses…! But since you’re not there you’ll need some help from her pesky little brother.. Bribe him or promise him some ice-cream or something the next time you’re in town and ask him to buy some bouquets, hide them away somewhere out of her sight and decorate her room before she wakes up. And Voilà!! You made her day!

3. Buckle On Some Adventure

If  your bae is that undying fan of Duck Tales, Raiders of The Lost Ark and such treasure hunt fiascos, or still loves cartoons, fantasy movies and books (I just described 80% of the women), then this is the most innovative thing you can do for her. Again you’ll need some help from her bro and a little preparation. Make some riddles write them down nicely on pieces of cards and have them left at various places like at her bed side table, bathroom mirror, her car’s wind-shield etc… Each riddle will be a clue that will lead to a small gift until the last one which will be a huge surprise!

4. Roll Back In Time

Remember the time when you just started dating? Ahh… what bliss! Those long nights of giggly wimpish talks, late night chatting, flirting, blushing and ohh those rogue butterflies that seriously got drunk and made a havoc in your stomach! Well, invite them over again… Take this Valentine’s Day to remember and relive all those sweet, naughty and beautiful memories. Stay up late and chat! Hey don’t forget to catch up on sleep the next day.. Or hello raccoon eyes!

5. Movie Marathon

All you need to do here is just get some movie DVDs of both of your choice, get a supply of popcorn ready and settle down in your pajamas in your respective beds and switch on skype! Now watch the movies together, hugging your pillows and chatting, commenting and ridiculing but most importantly enjoying the back to back movies together.

6. Cook or Play Together

Thank God for technology (or whoever that is responsible for it)! You can still be together even if you are far far away practically. switch on Skype and spend the day together doing the activities you love! Ahem…. Maybe those things too.. but I did not mean that. Try cooking together.. There is nothing sweeter and sexier than dicing vegetables, brewing soup and well, laughing at each other’s dumb mistakes, giving suggestions and watching each other sweat with hard work. It is the best way to connect than just talking on the phone. You can also try karaoke or other activities in a similar fashion.

7. Write A Letter

Letter? In the time of email and WhatsApp?!! Yes, because no electronic instrument or virtual writing can pour out the love, care and affection what the old world’s handwritten letter can.. A tip. Use a lightly scented paper, stick some photographs from the times when you’ve been together and and beautifully wrap it up and send it with a thoughtful gift. No white office stationary. Just saying.

8. Send Something That Reminds Of You

This may sound a little weird but trust me, it will be a great idea and your SO will be more than happy to be presented with it. Get a used shirt… Guy guys.. By a used shirt I don’t mean the one that’s in your laundry basket for over a month and is working as a replacement of ‘Rat Kill’.. but something subtle maybe with a hint of your perfume which she loves. And girls you can very well send him something a lot more conspicuous..! You know he’ll never stop thanking you enough! But guy refrain from it! Shirt only! And yes of course, needless to say, send her/him a little gift too along with that!

9. Have a Dinner Date

Yes you heard me right. Go have a date! Whoa! Not with someone else! Not if you want to live an another day… I meant, if you can cook together why can’t you have a dinner date together? Just ask her to get into that pretty dress you sent her, you be ready in the crisp white shirt she always thought you looked very charming in; lay the table, switch off the lights, light some candles and set your laptop in front of you… And you pretty much have a candle light dinner date, sitting across from each other.

10. Surprise Her

Even though these are some most beautiful and thoughtful ways you can celebrate your Valentine’s together, there is nothing which can beat the feeling of actually being together, in person. When you can touch each other not just the mouse button, hug and not just pillow and feel the warmth of her breath tickling your ears and not just her voice electronically transferred to your cochlea through the phone’s speaker. So, instead of spending Valentine’s Day in front of your laptop in your ganji with a bowl of maggi.. Go down there and surprise her! Her smile will be the brightest thing you ever saw!

11. Explore A New Place Together

It may not prove a very good idea to stand below her bedroom window, singing in that crowing voice with your mock guitar till the whole neighborhood begs you to stop and especially her dad comes out with a gun.. OK maybe not a gun but certainly his chappal… To make you stop harassing her girl when all you wanted is to surprise her! So, it may be a much much better idea if you two could take that weekend off to any nearby place and spend your Valentine’s in peace and unperturbed romance! Go, browse through holiday destinations now!
