A couple of months ago, I got into a long distance relationship - I wanted to make my guy something for Valentine's Day, but I didn't want it to be anything super mushy since the relationship is still really new, and it couldn't be large or heavy because of postage costs.  I made him a cd that's all songs about Canada, since he's Canadian and all, but I also wanted to make something a little more personal, so decided to make him plushies of the two of us, so we can be together in some fashion even though we're far apart.  I made them animals 'cause it seemed cuter - his is an arctic fox since he's up in the wintry north, and mine is a lynx mostly 'cause I like their tufty ears. ^_^

They're made of fleece and felt, and mismatched buttons.  They have velcro on their hands so they can hold some little items I made for them, and they can hold hands.  

Both of us wear glasses, so I made a pair for each stuffie out of pipe cleaners, though I think they look better without them.

I wanted to personalize the gift, so I made little felt items for the plushies to hold.  There's a heart (since it's for Valentine's), a cake, a jar of nutella, and a purple dildo - all stuff that represents running private jokes that he and I share.

So, that's it.  They're very far from perfect and took ten times longer to make than they should have, but it's pretty exciting to be sending them to him for our first Valentine's Day. ^_^
