If you have a friend or family member who lives in a different city — or across the country — you know how hard it can be to spend so much time apart. Chances are you think of your loved one often, but you don’t have the time to reach out.

What if I told you there was an easy and beautiful way to show your long-distance friends how much they mean to you? These beautiful “Long Distance Friendship Lamps” from Uncommon Goods are the perfect product for you and your loved ones.

Here’s how they work:

“When you turn one on with a simple touch of your hand, its mate emits the same ambient glow, no matter where it is and who is on the other end: Parent or grandparent, niece or nephew, or long-distance significant other. Each person sets up their lamp via Wi-Fi, then reaches out and touches the lamp whenever they want to let their loved one know they’re thinking of them. With every touch, the lamp cycles through a rainbow of colors, one at a time. You can also assign each loved one a color so that when they tap their lamp, yours lights up with their special hue.”

Uncommon Goods offers two unique styles of the Long Distance Friendship Lamp: the classic style, available for $85, and the mid-century style, available for $95. (You can also buy them in sets of two, available for $170 and $190, respectively.)

Another option is this cool bracelet set, touch one and the other lights up and vibrates!
