What’s up? How are you? It’s been a while since we've talked but I just wanted to check in and see how you are doing. The last time we talked, I remember you telling me about your new significant other. How is your relationship going? And do you have any idea what you are going to get them for a Valentine’s Day gift?
I know how hard it can be to be in a relationship while we’re self-isolating. I haven’t seen my boyfriend since last March either and even though we still Face-time and text everyday, it is so different from being able to see each other in real life. Especially for special days like Christmas, New Years, and his birthday, I had really wanted to be able to see him in person but it just wasn’t possible. Not being able to see each other has definitely put some strain on our relationship, to be honest. Sometimes, I would get mad at him just because I miss him and when we get into fights, trying to work things out just by texting or calling can be really frustrating.
However, one thing that has helped is that we have been sending small gifts to each other just as a reminder that we love and are thinking of each other. To us, the price of the gift was never what mattered but instead it was the meaning behind each gift that made them important and the fact that we were showing our appreciation for each other through these gifts.
Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, I have been doing a lot of research on what gifts to get my boyfriend and I thought that I would share some of my ideas with you. I know it can be hard to go out and get a gift during COVID-19, so these are all gifts that can be bought online! And as disclaimer, I am not being sponsored by any of these companies; I just really love these gift ideas.
My first and one of my favorite gift ideas is a bond bracelet. They are a pair of bracelets, one for you and one for your significant other, and when you touch the bracelet on your side, their bracelet will vibrate and buzz to mimic your touch. Each bracelet can be delivered to a different location so this is a perfect gift to give while staying socially distanced. Especially when you guys haven’t seen each other in so long, this bracelet can help you feel like you are next to each other and have them right at your fingertips. You can customize these bracelets to be any color that you like and they are even waterproof! This is such an adorable gift and you can get the bracelets from this website if you would like: https://www.bond-touch.com/pages/learn-more.
My next idea is a couples magnetic bracelet, which are two bracelets - one for you and one for your significant other- that each have a magnet. So, when you guys meet in person after the pandemic is over and have your hands next to each other, the magnets will be attracted to each other and connect! This is a really cute gift that can help you feel connected to your significant other when COVID is over, since you guys will literally be attached to each other! You can get these bracelets here if you would like, although there are many more shops and websites that sell them: https://www.etsy.com/listing/851482253/1-pair-personalized-adjustable-braided?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=couples+bracelet&ref=sr_gallery-1-1&col=1.
My third idea is a love box that you can buy online and have it directly delivered to their door. This will allow you to send love notes, drawings, or photographs from your phone to your significant other that will appear on the screen of this adorable little box. The cute little heart on the lovebox will also spin when it receives a message. This is a really nice gift to show that you are thinking about them and you can buy yours here if you like the idea: https://en.lovebox.love
My final idea is to create a personalized comic book of the story of you and your significant other. In this comic book, you can include the story of how you guys met, your journey so far, or just all the reasons that you love them! You can also even customize the setting, cover, and characters to make it look 100% how you want it to. This book would be completely unique and special to you and your relationship and would be perfect as a valentine’s day gift.

So those are all my gift ideas for Valentine’s day and I hope you found them useful! Please write back to let me know how you are doing, how your relationship is going, and what you decide to get for Valentine’s Day. I know that relationships can be hard during these times when you guys cannot see each other, so if you have anything you would like to talk about just let me know!
Have a great day!
