It’s tough when your loved one is far away from you. You miss them a lot, but you can’t meet them. The schedules are too busy to manage time to surprise them every week. In a situation like this, how will you show your loved one that they mean the world to you? The only resort to make them feel special is by sending them gifts. It surely cannot substitute your presence, but it reminds your partner how much you miss them, and how valuable they are.

The gifts don’t need to be expensive. It’s the thought and love that you have invested while getting it for your partner.

However, you can choose to send some tokens of love that you can easily customise according to your tastes and preferences.


Now when you have decided to send your loved one a gift, the real task of choosing the gift begins here. To help you make the right decision, here we have curated a list of love wrapped in gifts.

In the generation of 5G, distances are no more a hurdle for communication. The moment you miss someone, your smartphone is at the rescue. You can text, phone call or video call them. It has become so easy that the importance of handwritten letters has almost vanished. Writing a letter is very intimate and exclusive. It’s beautiful when you pen down your feelings for somebody. It brings tears of joy and pain. It is a keepsake that one can hold and cherish forever.

To write a letter is not a very difficult task, but it takes time and contemplation to express your feelings.

Flowers

Flowers are one of the pleasing things on earth. You don’t need to look for a special occasion to send flowers to your loved one who is living miles away. They are a token of love and affection that will brighten up their day. Find out which flowers they like the most, and send them a bouquet with a special message wrapped around it. If you aren’t able to find out what their favourite flower is, go with red roses. Sending flowers has become very easy these days; many websites are providing such services.

Memories keep you going when you are in a long-distance relationship. You scroll through the pictures of the times you were together and smile at those sweet memories. Making a DIY photobook can be a heartwarming gesture which will make you both nostalgic and happy. Every time you flip through the photographs, you will walk down the beautiful memory lane that you two created together.

You can buy a scrapbook or create one with loose sheets. Select some of your fondest memories, paste them in your scrapbook and write cute little captions below them. You can also convert this Photobook into a Table Calendar and put your craft to use.

If the photobook idea is not your thing, get a nice frame and place your favourite picture in it.

Your sweet presence is not there, but a cake can be a good idea. Sending cakes is an ongoing trend. Be it their birthday, your anniversary or an apology; a cake at midnight always wins the heart. These days you can send your bae their favourite cake with a click of a button. Thanks to websites like India Cakes that helps couples to surprise each other from miles away.

Getting customised merchandise for your loved is the best way of expressing your feelings to a person. One puts a lot of thought while choosing it; therefore, they are exclusive. From T-shirts to cushions, you can get everything customised. It will add a personal touch to the gift, and the concern you have put in will be evident.

Gift Vouchers and Coupons

If Bae doesn’t approve of your shopping choices, give them the liberty to shop for themselves and send them gift vouchers and coupons.

You can also give them a voucher for Spa or a day at Salon to relax. If you can’t be around, let them have a day pamper themselves.

Journal

If your loved one is fond of penning down her thoughts and ideas, a journal is a great idea. It will reflect that you respect them and their choices. Encouragement is the most significant gift that you can give to your loved one. You can buy a journal made of handmade papers or get one customised.

Headphones

Giving a cool pair of headphones can be a thoughtful gift. Your significant other would use them every day and will remember you every time they use it. These headphones are going to be with them on a movie night, or while listening to their favourite music, and most importantly while talking to you. How amazing would it be to listen to your bae’s voice in HD?

For the eternal love…

In times of technology, it’s easier to bridge the gap between two souls who are madly in love with each other. These gifts are nothing but an instrument to let the spark ignited. Your loved one will feel your presence even in your absence, what else could be better than this?

Children playing ringa ringa roses in an open backyard in England

Great historic events that have shaped the world and changed the outlines of countries are often not recorded in memory, or so we think. Wars made sure to destroy evidence and heritage, and the ones who survived told the tale of what really happened. Folklore, albeit through oral tradition kept alive many such stories, hidden in verse, limericks, and rhymes.

Ringa-ringa-roses, a common playtime rhyme among children across the world, is an example of folklore that has survived for many centuries. It tells the story of the The Great Plague of London which ravaged the city between 1665-1666.

Certain tribes have remained matrilineal, where the decision-making power rests with the eldest female of the family.

In modern times, many social movements aim to bring reform to the society we live in, on the basis of certain existing patterns. Patriarchy is something that many aim to cleanse our cultures of, to usher in the era of social and gender equality. Despite all these so-called movements, in southern India, certain societies that patronise matriarchy have existed since before India's independence. The Nairs and Ezhavas of Kerala, and Bunts and Billavas of Karnataka are matrilineal societies that continue to thrive in a patriarchal country.

Kerala remains separate from the rest of India in many ways. Be it literacy policy, form of government, or cultural practices, this state does not always conform to the ideal that India is known for. Even so with their social structure. Certain tribes have remained matrilineal, where the decision-making power rests with the eldest female of the family.
