Attention Long-Distance Love Birds, You Need To Invest In These 5 Valentine's Day Gifts This Season

Valentine's Day is a holiday that every couple is thrilled to share together, especially when they have been together for long periods of time. It is filled with dozens of roses, chocolates, and maybe even beautiful pieces of jewelry from a special someone

For long-distance couples, like myself, we need to make the gift giving process work a little bit.

For people loving one another from a distance, you need to get a little creative with the way you give gifts to one another. Yes, you may need to spend a little extra money shipping some packages over, but it is all worth it in the end when you see that smile on your significant other's face after they received the best gift Valentines gift ever!


1. A bouquet of roses.

Every girl dreams of randomly receiving a bouquet of roses at least once in their lives. There is something special about opening the door, and seeing an entire bouquet of beautiful flowers with your name on it sitting there waiting for you. Websites such as Pro Flowers, a flower delivery company makes it easy to surprise your significant other on a day filled with love. Select which bouquet you want, add their address, and ship em' away to make their day!

2. Personalized long-distance heart maps.

Etsy is an online website where you can personalize custom gifts for your friends, family and significant other. This personalized heart map of each person's location is a cute way to incorporate where they are currently living apart from one another, whether it is different colleges or different job locations. Love knows no distance. This gift is a great way to show your partner that in the end, love is more important than the miles in between one another.

3. Long-distance matching bracelets.

These two long distance bracelets are beyond perfect for any couple who want to share a piece of jewelry with one another. I personally have the white bracelet, and my boyfriend has the black one. We wear these bracelets every day and have yet to take it off in the three and a half years of long distance that we have experienced together. A bit extreme, but it serves as a constant reminder that we are dedicated to one another.

4. The Night We Met map of stars.

The Night We Met frame is a frame of, well, the night you two met! This personalized frame of a map of stars the night you and your boo met, is a perfect gift that displays your names, your anniversary date, and the location of where you met.

5. A box of chocolates.

All I'm going to say is, if my man doesn't send me an entire full box of my favorite chocolates on Valentine's Day, we are going to have a situation. The classic box of chocolates- a Valentine's classic! Godiva is the place you need to fulfill all of your chocolate needs and desires.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.

4444

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.

352

I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.

I was so excited to vote in my local primary election in August. I eagerly researched my local candidates, combed the newspaper for profiles and policy positions, and shared infographics on Insta about voting deadlines. I considered myself a keen voter.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

This $40 Silk Sleep Mask Gives Me The Best Sleep I've Ever Had — I Never Go Anywhere Without It

Crane And Canopy just redefined the meaning of "beauty sleep".

3989

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.
