How To Choose the Best Long Distance Gifts for your Partner
In his book, The Five Love Languages, Gary Chapman highlighted what he considered five ways through which love can be expressed and experienced by romantic partners. These are called love languages. These love languages include:
· Words of Affirmation
· Acts of Service
· Quality Time
· Physical Touch
· Receiving (and giving) gifts
For the most part, the love languages require both partners to be physically present. However, there are two love languages listed above that do not necessarily require the physical presence of your partner before it can be expressed. These love languages include Words of Affirmation and Exchange of gifts. These two love languages have proven to be very useful in long-distance relationships.
Your romantic partner will not always be by your side. However, you can always show them how much you love and miss them by sending them gifts. This shopping guide will be showing you several ways to use these love languages to express affection to your loved ones who are far away from you.

People who have used this product say it felt like they were resting on their partner's chest when they used it.
