Anything But Valentines Day: Romantic Ideas For a Long Distance Relationship

Every year, the month of love comes galloping in like a white horse in an open field — aesthetically pretty, but still a wild animal. While Valentine’s Day has many of us anticipating roses, chocolates, and Shakespearean sonnets, others may be miles away from their partner. And, just as wet clothing clings to the body, pressure attaches itself onto this red (and if you’re into pink) affair. The question is, why? Well, our theory is that many people consider Valentine’s Day the ‘do or die’ day of romantic gestures. But, you truly can choose to be romantic any other day(s) of the year. And, when you apply consistency, it could mean just as much! 

Every romantic relationship requires mutual effort to keep the flame from going out. However, long distance relationships are certainly in a league of their own. If you’re looking for romantic ideas for a long distance relationship, you’ll be happy to know that this is our chosen theme for the month of love. And, as long distance romantic gifting experts, we want to provide you with sweet (and affordable!) romantic ideas and tips for this year and beyond.

How to Sustain Business Relationships in the New Year

How do we sustain business relationships? With fast-paced technological advancement and endless online resources available to us, there can no longer be a straightforward answer. Making sales phone calls and conducting in-person meetings is outdated. Because today, people can make connections without ever having to meet face-to-face. This is both beneficial and challenging for business owners when it comes to forming and sustaining business relationships in a rather saturated market. 

But, all hope is not lost. Treating your business relationships similarly to how you would treat a friendship is a solid step toward building lasting partnerships. In a ‘copy and paste’ business world, your customers, partners, and even your suppliers are looking for a brand that shows integrity, trustworthiness, and altruism. And, with years of experience on our resume, we know that sending business gifts is one of the best ways to do so. Let us offer you our expertise as we discuss how you can stand out amongst the corporate crowd and sustain your crucial business relationships in the new year.
