Distance Relationships

Long distance relationships suck. But there are a few things that make them bearable like the comfort of knowing that the sacrifice of being apart is for a good reason and that eventually it will all be worth it. It's just a matter of time. Meanwhile, you can give each other the perfect gift to make the distance seem a whole lot shorter.

This is the perfect gift for a long distance love. Just set it to a specific date, like the next time you two are planning on visiting each other or a countdown until you're both reunited forever. Some might find it sheer torture to stare at the clock but at least you'll be able to see in real time as you come hours, minutes and seconds closer to seeing each other again.
