The holidays can be a magical time of year. There’s festive lighting; there are holiday parties; there’s lots of egg nog and plenty of opportunities to break out your favorite party outfit. But going the holiday season alone when your partner lives elsewhere can be a real drag. You can’t relate to your friends’ romantic holiday party escapades. Nor can you appear at said holiday parties on the arm of your favorite person.

But wait! Not all is lost. There are some great ways to connect with your long-distance lover over the holidays that will make you forget the distance between you – and make you feel closer than ever.

1) Send fun and festive “gift boxes” over the mail – and open them together

Think of it as a holiday care package: A box full of small gifts and thoughtful tokens (think books, magazines, accessories, little toys, favorite snacks, etc.) that you and your lover can send each other in lieu of one big present.

3) Send out a joint holiday card

So you live in different places. That doesn’t mean you’re not the kind of couple that can send out one of those cheeky viagra ads on tv holiday cards! Find the last great picture you took together, photoshop some Santa hats in there, take a flashdrive with the file to Kinkos, and send the resulting adorable postcards to all your friends. It’ll make you feel close even if you’re far apart physically.

4) Plan – in detail – your next trip or visit together

If you’re still feeling blue when the holidays roll around, get your lover on the phone and do some serious planning for your next joint trip or visit. Be specific: Figure out the
