Sending Love From Afar: How to "Send a Hug" with BearHugs

Sending Love From Afar: How to "Send a Hug" with BearHugs

While it's incredible that it's easy to travel far and wide these days, it does also mean that sometimes our nearest and dearest aren't that near. When distances separate us from our loved ones, it's not as easy to let them know how much we care with a big old hug.

That's where Sheffield-based BearHugs, born from love, warmth, and compassion, steps in. Let us introduce you to the magic of being able to "Send a Hug" from afar! We'll explore when a sweet gesture sent by post can make all the difference.

The BearHugs Magic: "Send a Hug" from afar

Picture this: It's your best friend's birthday, and you're stuck in a different city. Or maybe your sibling is going through a tough patch, and you wish you could be there to give them a comforting hug. This is where BearHugs steps in. More than offering just gifts; we're here to send love and help you create moments that matter.

"Send a Hug" to connect with loved ones

In a world that's more digital and distanced by the day, the power of sending a hug, even virtually, has never been more important. It's a gesture that transcends screens and miles, carrying with it your love and care. At BearHugs, our mission is to help you express your feelings, even when you can't be there in person.

Heartfelt Occasions to "Send a Hug"

Send a Hug for Missing You Moments

Whether you're separated from your loved ones by miles, busy schedules, or unexpected twists of fate, BearHugs can offer the perfect remedy. "Send a Hug" to show your affection, let them know you're thinking of them, and brighten their day.

Send a Hug to Celebrate Milestones

From birthdays and anniversaries to graduations and promotions, life is brimming with reasons to celebrate. BearHugs can help you add an extra layer of warmth to these special moments with carefully curated gifts that say, "I'm here, even when I'm not."

Send a Comforting Hug in Times of Need

During challenging times, like illness or loss, finding the right words can be tricky. We've carefully designed our hug in a box gifts to provide solace and support with gifts that offer comfort and remind your loved ones that they're not alone.

Send a Hug to Spread Cheer

Sometimes, you don't need a reason to send a hug; the desire to bring a smile to someone's face is reason enough. BearHugs offers an array of "just because" gifts to brighten anyone's day.


How Sending a Hug is more than just a gift

We believe that sending a BearHugs gift is more than just sending a box; it's about delivering an experience. Each BearHugs gift box is carefully designed to create lasting memories. Here's what makes a BearHugs hug in a box so special:

  1. Personal Connection: We're firm believers that the best gifts come from the heart. That's why every BearHugs gift box comes with the option to include a personalised note, adding a personal touch that's as warm as a bear hug.

  2. Thoughtful Selection: Our gift boxes aren't just random assortments of items; they're thoughtfully chosen to resonate with the recipient. From cosy socks to delicious treats, each item is selected to bring joy and comfort. You can also build your own care package from scratch because you know your loved one best!

  3. Unforgettable Impact: BearHugs' signature gift boxes are one of a kind! On opening their friendly blue gift box, your loved one will reveal two outstretched paws and a "Consider this a BearHug" message. The box itself delivers a hug when you can't yourself!


Sending a virtual hug isn't just about the physical items; it's about creating a bridge of warmth, a tangible expression of love that brings comfort and joy to those who receive it. It's a beautiful way to let someone know that you're thinking of them, even when life keeps you apart, even if we do say so ourselves.
