Dear Dish-It: The Perfect Valentine’s Day Gift

Dear Dish-it,

Valentine’s Day is coming up and I wanna get my boyfriend something amazing. The problem is that it's a long-distance relationship so we can't go anywhere special. We are both 16. He is sensitive and sweet and loves the color blue - LOL. I keep thinking of some ideas but it doesn't seem good enough...please help!


Dear V-Day,

Having a long-distance relationship can be tough sometimes – especially when it comes to gift giving! But we’ve got some great Valentine’s Day gift ideas for you that will make the miles between you and your boyfriend seem to just fade away…

Mail Away

In terms of tucking things into the mail, shipping can get pretty pricey – and you don’t want to blow your whole gift-giving budget on postage! Here are some tiny tokens of affection you can mail to your BF:

  • Gift card to his fave store
  • Photos of you
  • A love poem, or a list of 100 reasons why you love him
  • An old key (tell him it’s the key to your heart)
  • Puzzle piece (tell him he completes you)

Virtual Visit

With so much technology connecting us these days, why not make a virtual Valentine's Day date with your boyfriend? Arrange to have a video chat with him – you can even plan ahead and make the same meals so you can eat a romantic dinner together online! On video chat, be sure to dress to impress like you’re really seeing each other in person!

I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated. It really does help to talk to someone (teacher, parent, counselor, or another trusted adult) about it. If you tell someone what you've written here I'm sure someone will help you.  As for the clubs, you really just gotta go for it. Things are always going to be scary at first but it will get better the more you get into it. And obviously being in a club should help make friends. I hope what I've said is even a little bit helpful! :)
