Sending Love from Afar with Long Distance Gift Ideas

Sending Love from Afar with Long Distance Gift Ideas


Having a loved one that lives a long distance away can be challenging. Not only do you miss them, you may also struggle to find them the right gift. Traditional gifts such as flowers are harder to send, and although online florists do exist, it can be stressful trying to put together the perfect bouquet without seeing it in person. Flowers can also wilt very quickly, so if your bouquet is delayed in shipping, your loved one may receive the flowers in poor condition. At Lovepop, we offer the perfect solution: beautiful, hand-crafted paper flowers. Our flowers are highly ornate and last a lifetime, so you can rest assured that your gift will withstand the test of time. If you’re looking for long distance gift ideas, we have you covered!
