Long-distance Anniversary? Great Gift Ideas to Commemorate a Long-distance Relationship (LDR)

Anyone who has ever been in a long-distance relationship or LDR is well aware of the need for the little things. Things like talking regularly, sending long-distance relationship gifts every once in a while, and generally staying on the ball a lot more than when you're in a GCR or geographically close relationship. But a long-distance anniversary is a different ball game, where you have to up that game and take it to a whole new level - if you can, that is.

Nevertheless, if you're not in a position to sweep her off her feet by rolling up in a limousine like Richard Gere at the end of Pretty Woman, don't sweat it. After all, that oft-used platitude about "it's the thought that counts" is... well, a platitude for a very good reason - it's true!

And with that, let's look at all the different long-distance relationship gifts you can consider in the absence of a physical meeting.
