Are you separated from your valentine this year? You can be sure you're not the only one, including me! Out of the 5 years we've been together, we've only had one actually spent in the same zip code. Unfortunately, this year is no exception. But with that in mind I thought I'd share some fun ways to show your love across the miles and come up with some creative Valentine's Day ideas.

Be sure to come back later this week and check out part two of my long distance love post. I'll show you what I came up with for my Mr. and how he'll receive his Valentine this year.

1. How about some cute relationship typography? Etsy has tons of creative options to pick from.

2. A custom mug showing the state or countries you're in is a thoughtful gift anyone would love.

3. Have a date! Watch the same movie and eat the same foods together via video chat. It's a fun reason to get dressed too up even though you're far apart. 

4. Send your other half a kiss countdown! The less kisses means the closer until you two are together again. In my case I'd need a large vase, but a visual reminder can help make the time pass easier.
