Long distance relationships are difficult. No doubt about it. But they are do-able. It really comes down to do BOTH of you want it to last. For the sake of advice let it be Yes.
First off, talking is a good step, although if it's over done then it begins to get boring. Texting can be fun to get randomly (key point: Randomly) throughout the day. My girlfriend and I have been together over 3.5 years and most of it has been long distance. I'm also helping a friend who is longer distance than you are, but back to the advice.
A good site is link Some ideas are cheesy or cost, but many can be good. The thing that you want to avoid is becoming routine.
I suggest sending letters by mail every now and again. Even email instead of IM or text or Facebook can be a good change. Also, small gifts (flowers, candy, etc) can be fun to get. Since your wanting tips to do for a guy, randomly order him a pizza to be delivered (pre-payed by credit (yours or you can pay back your parents).
Msg me if you want more advice specific to your problem and I'd be glad to help.
Best of luck.
