Finding Long Distance Relationship Virtual Gifts Ideas with Fiverr (Complete Tutorial)

Every year, it’s panic time to find Long Distance Relationship virtual gifts ideas!

Your partner’s birthday is approaching faster than Usain Bolt and you don’t want to disappoint him.

You love him deeply, despite the miles that separate you, and this year you want to prove it. To do even better than last year.

You know as well as I do that celebrating birthdays is much more important in a long-distance relationship than in a traditional one.

They help maintain a meaningful emotional connection despite the physical distance. In these situations, gifts play a crucial role in expressing love, affection and support to the distant loved one.

Problem is, distance doesn’t make it easy:

  • Physical gifts take forever to arrive (if at all)
  • Shipping is expensive, and can quickly reach stratospheric sums if customs bend their noses too far into your affairs.

Fortunately, we live in the 21st century and the Internet makes it possible to find and offer long distance relationship virtual gifts.

Let me get straight to the point: the website I’ve found for you is a real goldmine.
The kind of jewels that are essential to know if you intend to offer a dematerialized gift for your Long Distance partner.

There will be a before and an after to your long-distance relationship.

Gone are Amazon gift cards, Netflix subscriptions and Ebooks. I’m not saying these ideas are bad (far from it, I myself offer Q&A Ebooks on My Sweet LDR).

I’m going to propose something much more original.

In this article, I’m going to tell you about the Fiverr website and how to use it properly.

It’s an online platform offering freelance services for finding unique and special Long Distance Relationship Virtual Gifts ideas. Whether you want to surprise your partner, friend or family member, Fiverr offers a multitude of options for finding the perfect gift that will warm the heart of your loved one, even from a distance.

On the program:

  • I test 3 services, from making contact to receiving the service
  • I give you 10 more gift ideas from Fiverr
  • A complete step-by-step guide to registering and ordering a service

3 reasons why Fiverr is the best site for Long Distance Relationship virtual gifts ideas

The Fiverr principle is extremely simple: it’s a website that puts you in touch with independent professionals.

Need an online service? Fiverr will find you the right person to meet your needs. Just like Uber connects you with cabs!

Let’s take an example: you need your CV translated from English to French. Fiverr will suggest dozens and dozens of professional translators who can meet your needs.

All you have to do is contact them, place your order and the professional will take care of the rest!

It’s really easy to use. I’ll show you how to register in a step-by-step tutorial later in this article.

Professionals are REALLY professionals

In theory, anyone can offer their services on Fiverr.

The reality is more nuanced.

Because there’s so much competition, professionals have to stand out and be better than the rest. They are therefore extremely fast and will bend over backwards to satisfy your request.

When I ask a salesperson a question, I get an answer in less than 5 minutes 80% of the time.

There’s a rating system (from 1 to 5 stars, just like on Amazon).

No seller has less than 4 stars.

1 star is the equivalent of putting up a sign in front of a store saying « average service and delivery time not respected. You won’t get your money’s worth ».

Fiverr sellers won't hesitate to let you know if they can meet your virtual gift needs.

By ordering only from sellers with at least 30 reviews and a rating of over 4.5/5, you take no risk.

It's fast and secure

Fiverr has rapidly become the world’s leading site in its field.

There are thousands of new registrants every month, and over 4 million orders are placed every time.

When it comes to security, reliability and professionalism, Fiverr is the best in the business.

Most services are delivered within a few days (I’ll show you all about that later).

You can pay extra to get your virtual gift faster on Fiverr

It's original and 100% personalized

There’s some crazy stuff on Fiverr. Some really crazy gift ideas!

Here’s a riddle: what do a policeman, a group of Amazonian natives, Santa Claus and a Moroccan snake dancer have in common?

They can all record a personalized message for your sweetheart.

You can organize trips to any country in the world thanks to locals, take online courses, create drawings from photos, ask a rapper to rap your lyrics.

There’s an insane amount of long distance relationship virtual gifts ideas out there.

I've already used Fiverr a dozen times for My Sweet LDR, and I've never been disappointed.

When I have a technical bug on my blog, I know that a Fiverr professional will be able to find a solution quickly. It’s clearly become my go-to site!

So yes, 97% of the services on this site are aimed at professionals. That’s not the part we’re interested in here.

I’m going to take a look at the remaining 3%: the services for people like you and me, the private individuals.

Fiverr is available in over 180 countries worldwide

I bought 3 LDR virtual gifts, here's the result

Last year, I asked Santa to record a video message for Kyomi (you can see the result here).

This year, I decided to order 3 different services for Kyomi’s birthday. Here’s my feedback on these 3 services, with screenshots.

How did I choose these services?

I based my choice on several criteria concerning the seller:

  • Must have at least 100 reviews
  • It must have a minimum rating of 4.7/5
  • His first price must be $5
  • His services must be in line with long-distance relationships

Let’s get on with the most interesting part of this article!

1) Sandman sings Happy Birthday live from the Sahara

this seller's profile on Fiverr tells me he can sing a birthday song for my girlfriend, who lives thousands of miles away.

I thought it was a funny idea, and Sandman has a sample video on his profile. I was seduced!

The seller has 412 reviews and a rating of 5/5. So I’m absolutely certain that the result will live up to my expectations and match what I saw on the video.
I didn’t even need to read the reviews.

So I got in touch with him:

first post on Fiverr about her virtual gift for long-distance relationships

He replied 30 seconds later, validating my request:

confirmation that its service corresponds to long distance couples

We exchanged messages again after that.

I was pleasantly surprised by one thing: he asked me to send him an audio file of how to pronounce « Kyomi »! A real sign of quality.

the professionalism of Fiverr sellers to create a virtual gift

So I placed the order and paid $10 + Fiverr fees, for a total of $13.05.

each seller on fiverr offers 3 different prices with different options

I’ve put together a complete guide later in this article to using Fiverr, from creating an account to contacting sellers, paying and receiving your order.

In the meantime, Sandman worked faster than expected: I received the video in less than 24 hours, instead of the usual 48 hours (you receive an e-mail notification that the order has been completed).

message that my virtual gift has been delivered on Fiverr

On Fiverr, there’s an option to request extra time if you need to touch up. But I didn’t need it because the video is incredibly funny!!!

They brought back a camel for free when this bonus should have been paid for!

Kyomi is going to hallucinate when he sees this.

You can watch the video here :

Sandman's service

  • Communication: 5/5
  • Speed: 5/5
  • Satisfaction: 5/5
  • What I liked best: he asked me how to pronounce the name « Kyomi » and added a camel to the video for free.
  • What I didn’t like: the funniest options quickly drive up the price (presence of a camel, writing your name in the sand).

NOTE: Between the ordering of my service and the publication of this article, Sandman no longer offers this service. Here’s an alternative that seems just as good.

Let’s move on to the service that interests me most, and which is by far the most romantic of all.

2) Ruby will draw cute couple and wedding portrait illustration

Ruby's Fiverr service allows long-distance couples to turn a photo into a drawing

Ruby seems to be a talented artist. On her profile, you can see a dozen drawings she has done!

I was convinced by 4 things:

  • Her drawings are absolutely gorgeous
  • She has 1246 reviews and a rating of 5/5
  • She was awarded the « Top Rated Seller » badge by Fiverr

Delivery is one week. That’s a bit long, but she has a lot of orders (at the time of writing, she has 4 in progress).

I got in touch with her directly:

first message sent to Fiverr to find out if its service for long-distance couples meets my expectations

Once again, the response was extremely fast. She replied less than 40 minutes after my first message.

reply on Fiverr to my request about long-distance relationships and virtual gifts

I sent her the photo I wanted to see as a drawing, and placed the order within the day.

Here’s the photo I sent her.

admin of My Sweet LDR website

It’s the one on the My Sweet LDR home page. I know Kyomi loves it!

For this service, I paid $30 + Fiverr fees, for a total of $34.15.

Now all I have to do is wait.

[5 days later…]

Ruby sent me the photo! I received it faster than expected: 5 days instead of 7.

Here’s the result.

I’m so happy! I really think this is Kyomi’s favorite gift.

Note: For better viewing on the website, I’ve deliberately compacted the image. The final result is perfectly defined.

Ruby's service

  • Communication: 5/5
  • Speed: 5/5
  • Satisfaction: 10/5
  • What I liked most: Ruby was very responsive and reminded me after delivering my order that I could make alterations if I wished.
  • What I liked least: Nothing

3) Terry will make amazing slideshow video from your photos

I could do the editing myself, but maybe you can’t!

What interested me most about this service was, first and foremost, its speed. Terry seems to be a professional.

It’s absolutely perfect for a last-minute gift!

Will I receive my video in full HD within 24 hours of placing my order? That’s what I’m going to find out!

Honestly, I’m confident: he has an average rating of 4.9/5 based on 541 reviews.

So I contacted him directly:

First contact with the seller Fiverr to find out if their slideshow service is a good virtual gift for long-distance couples.

I waited less than an hour for his reply!

confirmation from the seller Fiverr that its slideshow service is a virtual gift voucher for couples in a long-distance relationship

I paid $5 + Fiverr fees, or $7.78.

[the next day]

I’ve been reassured: I received my order in less than 24 hours, and the result is everything I expected!

Here’s the result:

Terry's service

  • Communication: 5/5
  • Speed: 5/5
  • Satisfaction: 5/5
  • What I liked best: Speed
  • What I liked least: Nothing at all. I personally could have done this service, but I know that’s not the case for everyone. It’s still good value for less than $8.

Step 2 : Order a service and find Long Distance Relationship Virtual Gifts ideas easily

Although Fiverr remains relatively simple and intuitive to use, there are a lot of different menus and categories.

I’m going to use Pareto’s law to help you find the services you’re looking for quickly and easily.

There are 2 main methods.

The first is excellent if you already know the service you’re looking for.

The second allows you to discover new services in a specific category.

1) The "Search" function

Simply type in the service you’re looking for, along with one or two keywords.

For example, type in « policeman » if you want a video with a policeman.

Or « Obama » if you want to see the first black president of the United States say something specific on video.

writing in English can give you more search results for finding dematerialized gifts for

2) The best categories for new Long Distance Relationship Virtual Gift ideas

If you’re looking for inspiration and don’t have any specific gift ideas, you need to search by category.
