Bear Hugs is a company I’ve been aware of for a couple of years, when it was still fairly new and on etsy. I’ve sent countless Bear Hugs gift boxes to friends going through a tough spot, poor health or other stressful time and they always went down really well. I felt so glad when they text me, surprised and thankful for the gesture. I obviously saw what they looked like to receive on the Bear Hugs website as well as in the photos my friends took of them when they arrived, but I’d never received one myself or seen them in real life. Until recently.
