New Challenges and the New Student Year

The start of the new student year can be daunting for lots of people. Thousands of students are heading to university for the first time - unsure what to expect, who they will meet and how their course will go.

And thousands more students are returning to university. Another year of exams, dissertations, late-nights out and late-nights studying.

It’s especially hard for students who are perhaps leaving some of their best friends. Whether that’s because not everyone is going to university, or people are heading off to different universities. Those people who you’ve been there for week in week out are now much further away. And of course you’ll keep in touch, but how can you best show someone that you’re still thinking of them? 

Whether you’re looking to give someone a pamper, a peaceful moment, or a chilled out evening with a book, we’ve got a whole range of thinking of you gift boxes designed to give all the warmth and comfort of a hug when you can’t be with them in person.

Of course, it’s not just the students! It’s a stressful time for parents too. Dropping your child off at university for the first time can be an emotional moment. They’re no longer living under your watchful eye, and you have to trust them to make the right decisions! They’re now in charge of their own washing, their own cooking, their own studying, and making sure they get up in the morning!

We love seeing parents sending our BearHugs gift boxes to students at university. It’s the perfect way to show you care and to say I’m thinking of you while still allowing them to keep their independence. Just because they’re out in the world on their own, it doesn’t mean they don’t need a hug to keep them going!

Here at BearHugs we wish everyone all the best of luck for the upcoming academic year. We can’t wait to see what you’re going to achieve!
