Seirously. I can't think of anything cute when there's a bajillon miles between my sweetie and me. Boo.

Aw, I know how that one is... my boy is far from me too.

For Christmas I made him a picture frame out of clay with his favorite picture of us in it. It was zebra with three bright red hearts on it that said "Emily"Loves"Tony" on them... He loved it, and it was such an easy idea. I suppose if you couldn't find clay, you could just paint a wooden one, and put hearts on it. But, yes, that was a great present for my boy that is so far away because it was so personal.

I hope that helped you a bit. Smiley

The cutest idea I read/saw/heard somewhere was to fill a box full of helium balloons and priority mail it!  When your sweetie opens the box, the balloons float out!  Pretty spiffy I think.

The voices in my head hate you!

You could make a little airplane that opens up with something inside it, or knit one, or draw one.
Um...Oh, i saw a great idea on here. Get two cans and poke  a hole in the end of each and put the string between them, like we used to do as kids, using them as 'phones' You can then fill them up with candy and little things Smiley
You could make a little book with a cartoon about how one day you built a boat/plane and came all the way to see him.
You could give him half of something, and you keep the other half..........?
Hope those ideas help.

this probably doesn't help you now for V day, but when hubby and i were long distance for a bit when we were dating, on one visit i made a bunch of little messages on notes and left them all through the house--on his tie rack, in pants' pockets, i think one in the freezer--plus nonperishable candy in a couple places. he was finding those suckers for the next month or so  Wink he said it was dorky and smaltzy but i know he liked it  Cheesy
