Cub Hugs as Table Party Favours!

I was in charge of table decor, games and gifts (this is a little piece of organisational heaven for me!). I made sure every person invited would receive a Cub Hug (a mini BearHug), with a small gift to remind them of the afternoon tea we were attending. I chose a mini chocolate and honeycomb bar by the wonderful Dandelion Cocoa (I had tasted their chocolate before and knew I was on to a winner!), accompanied by a personal message showing my thanks to everyone that came and made it so special for my sister-in-law. It made the loveliest gesture of appreciation, especially when many family members had travelled from afar.

Supporting Loved Ones at Exam Results Time

It’s exam result time! Reflecting on my time receiving exam results (many, many years ago!), I remember feeling such a whirlwind of emotions. Having a supportive ear and hand from those around me, played a big part in making sure I felt, whatever the results may be, that the outcome would be ok. Even if it required a different path to what I had envisaged. Then celebrating these achievements (no matter how long they took to reach), with others also congratulating me, was a wonderful feeling. Here at BearHugs, supporting each other is so important to us as a team and for our customers too. We have put together a little ‘analogy’ that may help you support your loved-one around results day.

Radiotherapy Gift Ideas

Just recently, we received a message through social media from a lovely lady called Heather, who, after seeing our Cub Hug (mini BearHug!) to support those going through Chemotherapy (see below), enquired as to whether we had a ready-made gift box to send to a loved-one experiencing Radiotherapy. Our Social Hug Assistant, Charlotte, was more than happy to help, explaining that although we did not have a ready-made BearHug/ Cub Hug for Radiotherapy treatment, that customers could select and build their own personalised box with the recipients needs/likes in mind.
