To be in one long-distance relationship is difficult. One of the greatest feelings, however, is doing something for your significant other and seeing their reaction when he opens his package or receives your letter. Therefore DIYs are so perfect for couples who live far apart because it shows how much love and time the person has put into your gift. Here are 10 DIY projects you need to do if you are in a long-distance relationship.
This is one of the sweetest long distance relationship ideas. With so much time, it is sometimes difficult to talk as much as a normal couple, let alone spend time together. That's why this idea is perfect, because if you can't be there to kiss your significant other, they have something sweet to remind them of you.
2.Kisses two times
This is even easier to do than the first. All you need for this are a few different lipsticks or lip glosses, some paper, scissors, a pen and an envelope. They kiss the paper, cut it out, and then write cute notes on the back. Once you're satisfied, you can put them in an envelope with a cute title on the front and you're done. This would be extremely cute for Valentine's Day or anniversary gift.
3. A countdown until you are together
Using a countdown app on your phone is fun because you can both do it. However, it is even better to create your own countdown for your sweetheart. All you need is a mason jar, some paper and a string. You can really customize whatever the notes say, but make sure you have folded your paper so the days are up and arrange them. After folding them, tie them together with a string to hold them together and place them in the mason jar. Finished. This is a great way to personalize something instead of relying on technology.
4. Send a helping hand
One thing that sucks about long-distance relationships is not getting a chance to hold hands. This solves this problem and is a sweet replacement. All you need is a piece of paper, ink and markers. You should make sure your paper is on a flat surface, and then put your whole hand in the ink. Stamp your hand on the paper to print your hand. After washing your hand, you can use markers, stickers, paint … anything you want to customize.
5. Love is sometimes a card
This DIY is a cool idea and you will most likely not have to buy anything since you already have everything at home. You will need a pack of cards, tape, paper, a punch, and jump rings. Use your paper first and write down the 52 things you love about your significant other, as this is likely to take the longest time. Then punch holes on one side of your cards with a punch and stick paper on the front of the card. Add the binder clips and you're done with magic.
6. Some sweets for your sweetheart
Sending candy to someone always brightens up their day, no matter what. However, sending chocolate in the mail is probably not the best idea. Jolly Ranchers are a great replacement and could stand being in the mail for a few days without melting. All you need is a card, Jolly Ranchers, tape and a marker. First decorate your index card and leave space for your sweets. Then stick the Jolly Ranchers on and you're done. It's a simple DIY, but one that your significant other will particularly appreciate if you use their favorite candy.
7. Send a box of reminders
This is a further development of the original message in a bottle idea. For this handyman you need a box and a piece of paper. First write down the memories or type them in on your computer and print them out. Then arrange them in the box and make sure you have enough to fill the box. A cool touch to add something to these pieces of paper burns the edges a bit to make them look aged.
8. A personalized picture frame
This DIY looks complicated, but is actually quite simple. You need a black picture frame, a picture of you and your love and coloring pens. You may also need some state images or a template, but these are optional. It really doesn't matter if you put the picture in the frame first or if you decorate it first. It's really up to you, but either way it's a nice idea to show the connection between you and your significant other.
9. A care package
This handyman will definitely take some time and some money, but your significant other will appreciate how much time you put into it. The subject of this care package is films, but you can customize it to your liking. The film is a good topic because almost everyone likes films. It also gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your crafting skills on the box, and that little extra touch doesn't go unnoticed.
10. Open for letters
This is one of the most classic ideas for long distance relationships. If you can't be there for your significant other, these letters are perfect for any occasion. The amount of things you can customize on these letters is endless and it will be a great success for your significant other, trust me. I gave my friend a series of letters for his birthday and he loved them, so I'm sure your sweetheart will too.
