3# Send Traditional Pieces

How To Stay Connected With Friends & Family Living Abroad?

Now, you are confused, I know! I have stayed outside my country for eight years. Coming from India, I always craved traditional clothes and pieces that I could wear during the time I was in London. 

However, it never came to my family’s and friend’s mind to do something like that. You can collect certain traditional pieces, not just clothing, but jewelry, linens, footwear, etc., and send them to your dear ones. 

Not only the one you have sent it for will love the gift, but people and their friends will also feel emotional and love it. So, I am telling you to do this right now! 

4# Make & Edit Their Videos | Mail Them! 

This one is the most interesting one for me and many because it demands precision and time. Yes, you can make memorable videos for your loved ones by collecting videos, images, and some data. 

Put it together and tell your editor friend (like me wink! wink!) to make a beautiful video with a funny or an emotional song! The one who will receive it will fall in love with it, and there are chances that they will cry remembering you! 

So, make them cry, I mean show them you love them a lot and make a video with the help of your editor friend. 

5# Add Something Of Theirs At Your Place!

Another thing that came into my mind while writing this article is that you can keep their picture, clothes, or something valuable, get it framed, and put it in your room. 

When I was in college, I took my girlfriend’s single curtain and put it in my hostel room’s window. It wasn’t matching at all, but it made me remember her when I was about to cheat her (just kidding). It made me feel her presence and the unmatching curtain will keep your bond and love always matched with one another. 

So, things like these are cute and enhance the essence of love.
