How to Find Appropriate Gifts for a Boyfriend Living in the UK

Give Him Something that Expresses Your Feelings

Buying a gift for people in a long distance relationship is always a lengthy process. When you don’t see each other for a long time, the only way to convey your feelings is through gifts, emails and messages. If your boyfriend is staying abroad then get him a gift that helps him understand your feelings for him. If you have a boyfriend who is in the UK then get him things which will help overcome the distance and keep your relationship alive. It’s not an easy process. But with the right gifts and proper communication, it’s not impossible.

Being away for a long time creates a mental distance between people. Therefore extra effort is required by both of you to overcome that. Personalised gifts and letters are things which will help you convey your feelings and assure your guy that you still love him.

Keep in Mind His Lifestyle

Lifestyle in the UK is different from anywhere else. So you have to keep that in mind while buying a gift for you UK resident boyfriend. Whether he is a student or a working professional, his daily routine is a bit different than yours. Gifts that will help make his life easier and help him manage his busy schedule will always be welcomed by him.

Ask him about his daily activities, his job and about things he does on his free time. These little details will aid you greatly while you are trying to decide on a gift for him. If he is into fitness get him sports related or workout related products. If he has to wake up early then get him a cool digital alarm clock with built in radio. If he is a coffee lover then you could get him a coffee brewer.

Take Into Account the Weather and the Environment

The weather in the UK is chilly and grey with occasional sunny days. People living in the UK look forward to the few days of sun that they get and make the most of it by spending as much time as possible out of doors. The temperatures are more or less on the low side. It rains often making the surroundings damp and cold. Therefore warm and waterproof clothing, footwear etc. will come of great use.

You can gift your boyfriend a trench coat, a warm jacket or waterproof shoes. Another great gift would be a wristwatch with dual time. That way he will always know the right time to call you. An anorak or a rain Jacket, wellington boots, gloves, warm woolen hats, knit scarves etc. are all great gifts suited to the UK weather.

Get Him Something to Get Over Homesickness

Life can become monotonous and boring when you are away from home and friends. Homesickness can strike suddenly out of the blue. But certain gifts can help greatly in dealing with homesickness. You can send your boyfriend DIY or handmade gifts to help him deal with his feelings. Give him a box full of open when letters. ‘Open when letters’ are a bunch of hand written letters or notes that come with specific instructions to be opened when a particular situation strikes.

For example, you can write a letter with the instruction ‘Open when homesick’ or ‘Open when missing family’. Search online for instructions on how to write open when letters. You could also send him a hand knit scarf or a cosy throw. Personalised gifts such as a photo collage or a photo pillow also help deal with homesickness to a certain extent.

Another great gift for a boyfriend who is away is a care package. You could put one together for him if you want or buy it ready packed. Care packages can contain anything from food to personal care products to daily essentials like laundry detergent and room fresheners.

Innovative Ways to Communicate with UK Resident Boyfriend

Have a Weekly Skype Date

If you and your boyfriend are staying apart for long periods then you have to find innovative ways to connect and communicate. Having a Skype date is one way to do it. Decide on a day that you both will be free and a time as well. Don’t take it lightly just because it’s over Skype.

Dress up as you would for a real date and ask him to do it as well. It will help maintain the mood. Light a candle set up a dinner table with food and a glass of wine. He can do the same also. Apart from the physical distance, it will almost feel like that you two are in the same room, sharing a meal together. If you are feeling a bit more bold and adventurous, then you could indulge in a little kinky fun as well. You could take the help of toys, wear something sexy and just give him the visual and mental stimulation that he needs.

Send Him Playful Pictures

We would suggest this only if you are in a trustful and committed relationship. Sending pictures which are a bit risqué is a great way to keep the romance alive in a long distance relationship. You could put on some sexy lingerie or if you feel comfortable maybe even show some skin. Next time you step out of the shower, take a picture wearing a towel. Your freshly washed dewy skin would make him long for you like never before. It would keep your sexual chemistry alive and he wouldn’t be able to take his hands off you the next time he sees you. If you want to keep things PG 13, then send him some cute selfies of yourself.

It is worth the effort

Being in a long distance relationship wasn't ever going to be easy and you knew that. Most times it may not bother you but once in a while when you see others around you with their sweetheart a phonecall or short ride away, the sharp jab of just how tough it is can hit you harder than you thought it could. Persevere and work on building a strong, meaningful relationship and it will all be worth it when you are reunited.
