Distance sucks. And it sucks even more during Christmas, Valentine’s Day and special occasions.
If your Significant Other or your loved ones are spending birthday away from home, here are 21 long distance birthday ideas to put a smile on their face.
21 Ways to celebrate birthdays in a long distance relationship
Make a cake and share via Skype
No birthday is perfect without a birthday cake. Since it’s not always possible to send a real cake, why not organize a virtual birthday party via Skype?
Save the birthday cake recipe so you can recreate the exact same one when you two are reunited.
Send a birthday party care package
Being miles away from a loved one on birthdays is tough. But it doesn’t mean we can’t have fun while we are not physically together.
Put together a birthday care package and fill it with party favors. Send in advance so you can celebrate on the big day.
Enjoy a long distance game night
It takes a little creativity to make date nights happen in a long distance. If your long distance partner is a gamer, what’s a better day to join his squad?
