The other day I saw an ad on TV for a unique Valentine’s Day gift. You’ve all probably seen it too. A Big Hunka Love Bear. First, he’s about the cutest thing you’ll ever see. It’s not that I have a Valentine to send something to this year, but just seeing the bear made me smile. If you want to check him out for another year, perhaps, since this is a little late to send someone a gift this year, go to: www.vermontteddybear.com
He has outfits you can buy. For instance there’s a cute, personalized t-shirt. There is a bear hugs outfit for a baseball fan. And believe it or not, the "Zombie Bear" is sold out. Outfits are cute, but so is the bear just in bear-form.
He’s four feet tall and squishy. Or they have a smaller Lil’ Hunka Love Bear.
But hey, on Valentine’s Day you want to go big for the love in your life.
It’s true that flowers and chocolates are the most purchased gifts. But flowers don’t last, and if you’re a romance writer, For sure neither do chocolates. And if you gobble down chocolates you’ll probably get mad at yourself, or worry that you took in too many calories or something.
A teddy bear will last forever, and will make you feel good every time you walk past him.
I know, because I have a giant bear. Not this one, mine isn’t quite 4 foot tall, but almost. My granddaughters gave him to me for company after I sold my house and moved into a townhome where I didn’t know a soul.
You should always hug your valentine first, but sometimes if you’re down and he’s not around, hugging a lovable, soft teddy bear is the next best thing.
