Aside from wrapping yourself in a big red bow.

When you're in a long-distance relationship, even when the time spent apart isn't destined to last forever, it sure does feel like it will. Technology (a.k.a. FaceTime) over the past decade and a half may have made LDRs a bit less sucky, but nothing can replace the feeling of having your S.O. right there next to you in the flesh. Especially around the holidays, when it seems that everyone and their dog has a companion at their side.

That's where the right gift comes in. Even if you're able to give your partner the most perfect gift of all (a drive or flight to be with each other, natch), at some point, when you go back to your respective places, you're going to need something to brighten up y'all's spirits. So I rounded up the best gifts for long-distance relationships, to communicate whatever mood you're feeling: lonely, homesick, cheeky, or straight-up ~sultry~. These picks won't just remind bae how lucky they are to have you even miles and miles away—they're also perf to gift yourself when you just want to feel closer to your love. Time to go shopping! You'll feel better, trust me.

The Carry-On
Away awaytravel.com
$225.00

Small enough to fit in most overhead compartments but large enough to fit just about everything your partner's heart desires (including your gift, too, of course), this smart suitcase takes traveling to the next level. Made of a super-sleek shell, it features 360-degree wheels for a smooth ride, err, run to the gate. Plus, it has an ejectable battery for phone-charging, which is especially essential given all those "status update?" responses you'll be sending in anticipation of your arrival.

Just because you can't have sex when you're separated doesn't mean your partner can't give you all the feels from afar. This couples vibrator comes with an app that doubles as a remote control—meaning they can control your toy (woot!). It also allows couples to message and video chat each other while using the vibe. It's the "holy grail of sex toys," Archie Bongiovanni, a sex educator at Minneapolis-based sex shop Smitten Kitten, previously told Women's Health.
