Hello!!! There are times when you are in an international long-distance relationship and don’t want or can’t give your partner “something tangible”, even if you have a one-sided or two-sided love.
So, let’s get started and write down some potential gifts.
1 Handwritten message
Even if you can’t send a letter, writing a message on a nice piece of paper and sending a picture of it will not be too much of a burden for them. The fact that the message is especially handwritten, rather than the usual WhatsApp or other messages, is still very significant.
2 Music playlist
It is also a good idea to share with your partner “music to celebrate your birthday.” If you are in an international relationship, you can then say, “This is the music that is popular in Japan”, and for your partner, you have fulfilled three purposes: a present for yourself, international exchange, and cross-cultural understanding.
If you don’t have Spotify, you can do the same thing on YouTube.
It can be a photo of you, a photo of your city, or a photo of your hobby. Anyway, your message mustn’t be just text.
4 Audio messages.
Audio messages are often used in Italy. Messages with human warmth will be treasured.
5 Say Happy Birthday in a different country’s language
It’s a great way to create a buzz and it’s stylish.
6 Gift vouchers from Amazon.
For example, if the person lives in Italy, you can buy a gift certificate from Amazon in Italy and send that. If the gift is to buy whatever you like on Amazon, it won’t be too much of a burden.
7 Say a simple happy birthday
By saying congratulations at 0:00:00 in the recipient’s country time, your message will reach them first. Consider the time difference. The time difference between Japan and Italy is eight hours earlier in Japan (seven hours if you are on daylight saving time).
