BearHugs Blue Friday | 15% off all orders
BearHugs Featured in the Invisible Hypothyroidism Christmas Gift Guide
Here at BearHugs we chatted a lot about whether or not to join in with Black Friday this year. We try our best to offer our best prices all year round as it's so important to us that our lovely BearHugs customers get the best value for their money. We also always want it to be that if someone wants to be able to send a hug they can afford to do so.
Equally though, we know this time of year can be really expensive so if we can help out the lovely people who have supported us and shown an interest in what we do, we'd absolutely love to.
That being the case, we've popped a little discount on the website for this weekend. If you put the code BEARHUGSBLUEFRIDAY in at checkout, you'll get 15% off your order.

2017 Random Acts of Kindness Advent Calendar
This morning thanks to Coutts and Prince's Trust I had the privilege of meeting Sir Ben Ainslie and founder of Trunki, Rob Law. It was incredible to hear both Sir Ben and Rob talk about their journeys to success. I was particularly inspired by the values, culture and approach to people at Trunki. As always, I was very proud to be a Princes Trust Young Ambassador and talk about my experiences of the Enterprise Programme which helped me to launch BearHugs in 2015.

Two Years of BearHugs | Behind the Scenes

Applications for the post closed on Friday but as soon as we can offer other similar roles in the future we absolutely will.

We've had some lovely news this week! Our special BearHugs boxes have been shortlisted for the UK Packaging Awards.
Bright Bears HQ
This review from Rachel at The Invisible Hypothyroidism totally made our day. BearHugs was inspired by a package Chief Sender of Hugs, Faye, received at a particularly poorly time so it means a lot to know that our hugs in boxes are brightening the days of others living with long term conditions.
