6. Write Love Letters

While technology has made long-distance communication incredibly cheap and easy, still nothing beats the thrill of receiving and opening a handwritten love letter through mail. Being pen pals with your partner involves communicating in an intimate, unique way. Love letters are an enduring way of storing precious past memories unlike webcam sessions and phone calls which are easily forgotten.

Making a little mailbox crammed with love notes is a fun way of counting down the days before the next visit by your partner. Everyone enjoys receiving a mail that is not a bill or an advertisement. Sending a postcard or letter indicates that you care enough to make the extra effort. You can send a love note, card or gift to surprise your beloved partner.
