They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, but if you live on
the other side of the country or even world to your best friend, it's
sometimes a bitter pill to swallow.
What's worse is when they live in a completely different time zone because they selfishly upped and went to Australia, making getting hold of them at a convenient time tricky.
Which is why we absolutely love the idea of the Long Distance Touch Bracelet set. It is like the 21st century version of friendship bracelets.
A little cheesy admittedly, but this snazzy new tech gadget from Uncommon Goods allows you to touch your bracelet when you're missing your favourite pal and as long as they're wearing theirs, they will feel it vibrate and see it light up.
It simply gives a subtle note that you're thinking of them. Cute.
The don't come cheap. They're £74.44 for the pair, although shipping and taxes on top brings it up to £111.08.
But think about it... split two ways that's only £55.54 each. Some might argue that's a small price to pay for something that keeps you feeling close.
Just make sure you set them up through the special app first to ensure they're connected.
If your pal lives somewhere really far away, it's not always convenient to chat because whilst they might be at home eating breakfast, you might be out and about with other pals at the pub.
But one tap and you know they're thinking of you, without having to take an hour out of your night out to chat on the phone, or ignore everyone whilst you send all those love heart emoji-filled texts.
You can even send up to ten taps in one message, so if you want to create a secret code then you can go right ahead.
The bracelets are practical too, as they are waterproof and rechargeable, so you never need to be without them.
Although, let's be honest, we'd probably take ours off whilst sleeping, we love our pals, but we don't want to be woken from our slumber, ever, thank you.
