Bearhugs is a social enterprise that was founded because of the impact that a thoughtful care package had on our Chief Sender of Hugs, Faye. We now make it our mission to ensure that no matter the occasion, you have everything you need to send the perfect hug in a box gift by post.

In this gift guide, we will be taking you through some of the gifts that we think would make ideal we will miss you presents, from encouraging treats to things that will help someone settle into a new phase of their life.

Whether they’re heading off to a new job elsewhere or signing off for maternity leave, sending a we will miss you gift hamper full to the brim of lovely presents will no doubt make them feel supported and bring a smile to their face.
