Sometimes Nothing Beats a Hug

My name is Faye Savory and I own the Sheffield-based postal gift box business, BearHugs.

Through BearHugs I offer a range of gift boxes designed to deliver all the warmth and comfort of hug when you can't be there personally. BearHugs gift hampers, filled with treats, are packaged with care and reveal a ‘Consider this a BearHug’ label on opening. They can be tailored to the preferences of your loved one and sent directly to their doorstep with a personalised photo notecard.

The idea for BearHugs came about after I received an especially thoughtful package from a friend just when I needed it most. Having come to terms with chronic illness, I wanted to start something that not only gave me a purpose, but helped to  promote the small acts of kindness I knew to make a big difference.

It was important to me to make a range of gift boxes that were not only perfect for saying Congratulations, Get Well Soon or Happy Birthday but also for just about any other reason you can think of for showing someone that you care.

My BearHugs gift packages, built around the theme of comfort, include items such as hand-poured scented candles, high quality chocolates, artisan teas, cosy socks, crossword books, healthy snacks, 100% natural body butters and much more besides. The majority of items in BearHugs boxes are lovingly handmade in BearHugs HQ or sourced from talented British independent makers. 

For every 50 gift boxes sold, one is sent to a seriously ill child or their sibling through the charity Post Pals.

Sometimes nothing beats a hug but we're not always within arms' reach of our loved ones. BearHugs gift boxes are there to deliver all the warmth and comfort when you can't.

"I recently had some BearHugs tote bags printed by BIDBI and I could not be happier with the service I received. It's always great to be able to use a local company, even better when they share your values. Everyone at BIDBI was incredibly friendly and helpful. The bags were of great quality and I would absolutely recommend BIDBI to others".
