Lovely words for when you're not sure what to say

Lovely words for when you're not sure what to say

At checkout you will be able to provide a personalised message to any BearHugs Gift Box. But We know sometimes finding the right words can be really tough.

We are often humbled when lovely customers trust us to help them send a hug to loved ones in the toughest of circumstances.

All BearHugs gift boxes come with the option to add a personalised message but we know that sometimes finding the right words can be really hard.

With this in mind, we’ve put together a little list of really lovely quotes that some of our incredibly thoughtful customers have used in the past. Feel free to have a browse of words we love below. If you see something that could be a good fit, you can copy and paste it into your message.

A Little About BearHugs

We love helping people send all the warmth and comfort of a hug from afar.

When you order a ‘hug in a box’ gift hamper, you can add extra personal touches such as your own message. Every BearHugs gift box is hand-packed with love and then popped in the post so it can be sent directly to a doorstep of your loved one. 

We’re really proud of our signature 'hug' gift boxes which reveal outstretched paws and a ‘Consider this a BearHug’ message on opening. They never fail to make us smile and we love hearing that they’ve made recipients smile too.
