Long Distance Friendship Lamps - Send Love and Light With Just a Touch

Long Distance Friendship Lamps - Review for a Great Gift Idea

I've been reading about these lamps for over a year now but haven't jumped in yet to get one. However, this one is on my list of original gift ideas.

Unique Gift Idea for Separated Loved Ones During Quarantine, or Any Reason

I've been thinking about getting this gift for both a friend of mine and my mother. 

When I first read about this lamp, I was confused about how it worked. I won't pretend I've seen it in action, but I had to share this funky lamp with you all today.

What Are Friendship Lamps?

When you buy the lamps in pairs, you give one lamp to a friend, grandparent, parent, or anyone for that matter, and you keep the other lamp at your place.

Each of you set-up your lamp via WiFi. Yes, you both need WiFi.

When you touch your lamp, it lights up at the other end to let the other person know you're thinking of them. 

Apparently, it cycles through colors when you touch it.

Plus, you can assign different people different colors. For example, each grandkid could have their own color that lights up when they touch the lamp to let grandma or grandpa know they're thinking of them. Popular grandparents could have these things going on and off all day!

Here's a Brief Video on How to Set The Lamps Up

Why A Friendship Lamp Would Be Nice to Share Between Long-Distance Loved Ones

Here are a few things that come to mind:

  • Grandparents may not have cell phones, and for that reason, they don't get the frequent communication that texting provides to most of us. My mom doesn't have a cell phone, so this lamp would be a nice way to say hello throughout the day. I do call her every night, but we could all be lighting up her life during the day.
  • For those who have trouble hearing, this is a quick way to send frequent loving light messages.
  • It's a lovely way to say goodnight when talking isn't possible.
  • Since it's as simple as a touch, loving light messages can be sent throughout the day.
  • Those who work many hours could bring one to the office and have the other at home for their spouse.
  • This is an ideal gift for besties. Best friends could share light messages whenever a little support or love is needed.

  1. What a nice idea and if this quarantine lasts much longer I could see people using these as ways to make their families smile during the separations. I've never heard of these before and think it's a really cute idea. Thanks Barbara for this lovely idea.

  2. Very interesting product. Thanks for the introduction

  3. Great idea for a college student too! I love this idea and can think of dozens of folks who would enjoy one.

  4. Quite a unique idea. You do find the most unusual items, Barbara.

    1. Miss Elf, I'm seeking them out all the time lol - like a treasure hunt :)

  5. I haven't seen these lamps before, but I can certainly see how they would make someone feel loved, especially a shut-in. It would be really nice if you could somehow put them in a hospital room since hospitals are not allowing visitors in most places.

    1. Yes, I know. You can't access the hospital router, but someone needs to come up with a way to make them work there :)

    2. WOW, that is a fantastic idea and use for these lamps!

  6. What an intriguing idea! I’ve never heard of these before, but I can see them being wonderful for long-distance sweethearts (or couples where one or both people travel a lot).

    1. great idea for long distance relationships - each with a light by their bedside, love that :)

  7. What a great idea send a little love and light.

  8. What a beautiful idea! I have never heard of these lamps before. I would have loved one of these for my parents.Fantastic for anyone apart from a loved one for any reason. I think the hospital idea is wonderful, someone needs to make that work! Thank you for sharing this lovely idea Barbara.

    1. Thank you :) - the hospital idea is such a lovely way to use these, totally agree

  9. Love, love this idea! What a lovely and very practical gift! Checking with my neighbor who could really benefit from this ... hope they have WIFI!

    1. Such a good idea for people separated by this pandemic right now, thank you

  10. I haven't seen anything like this before. What a unique and fun idea. And, what a really great gift idea. You always come up with the coolest ideas Barbara. Thanks for introducing us to this one.

  11. How lovely! It's a good thing you keep me up on the latest cool trends. Who thinks of these things? Brilliant idea.
