Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the things other lovely BearHugs customers have asked in the past...


How long do BearHugs take to arrive?

All BearHugs gift boxes are packed with lots of love and care on the day the order is placed or the following working day. They are then immediately dispatched First Class.

BearHugs typically arrive within 3 working days.


Why hasn't my bearhug arrived Yet?

The most common reason for any delay is that no-one was home when Royal Mail attempted a delivery. In this case, a card will be put through the door with information about how your recipient can collect their gift box or rearrange a delivery for a time that suits them. The new arrival date will then depend entirely on when your recipient would like to collect their BearHug or have it delivered. 


Will my recipient know who sent their BearHug?

When your BearHug arrives the lucky recipient will receive the gift you selected and any message that you chose to add to your box. 

We hate the idea that anything could detract from the intended sentiment, so we never include any additional documents in the gift.

As such, when writing your card message, please be aware that if no name is included, the recipient will not know who the BearHug is from and the delivery will be completely anonymous. This may be your intention as a random gesture of kindness.

If the recipient contacts us to find out who sent the BearHug, we will not release any information without your permission and will contact you to confirm if it would be acceptable to yourself to provide such details. This is due to the Data Protection Act of 1998.


Will my recipient receive any information about billing?

We'd hate for anything to detract from the sentiment behind your gift box, so we never include any information about billing or payment in the gift.


Can I send a BearHug internationally?

We offer shipping within the UK and Ireland. We're afraid we don't ship elsewhere in the world at the moment. We hope to in the not so distant future so look out for updates on social media or in our newsletter!


Why can't I find a 'Gifts for Men' Section?

While we appreciate customers may be used to seeing a 'For Him' section when shopping online on certain sites, it's not a categorisation we at BearHugs wish to make.

We'd rather not reinforce any expectations about which products are 'for' who, nor make any assumptions about those sending/receiving BearHugs based on gender.

If you want any tips on which BearHugs products would make up the perfect BearHug for someone specific in your life, send us an email at hello@bearhugsgifts.com and we would be more than happy to make some suggestions!


Once you've 'built' and ordered your BearHug, a member of Team BearHugs will pack the treats you've chosen with lots of love and care in one of our signature gift boxes with outstretched paws.  If your items fit in one of our adorable mini BearHugs boxes, we will always use one of these to save on unnecessary waste packaging.
