Why A Teddy Bear Is A Friend For Life

Within the bedrooms of both children and adults alike, you can expect to find at least one teddy bear. People of all ages have much-loved teddys that they cherish, and this type of soft toy has been popular since the early 1900s. It is fair to say that a teddy bear really does make the perfect friend for life and it is much more than just a ‘toy’, for many it is a companion to turn to for comfort whenever needed.

Perfect gift for any age

Gifts are given for various different reasons throughout someone’s lifetime, from their first birthday to their graduation, and a handmade teddy bear always makes the perfect gift. Whilst there are countless gifts to choose from, this specific soft toy is one that will be treasured for life.

Not only is a teddy bear a traditional and timeless gift, but whether you opt for a classic design or something more luxurious, a teddy bear will last a lifetime too. Teddy bears that are stitched by hand can stand the test of time and be loved by someone for many years to come. Many keepsake teddies are passed from one generation to the next.

With the option to personalise a soft teddy bear too, this type of gift can instantly become more meaningful. Whether you include a newborn baby’s initials or a newlywed’s wedding date, a personalised teddy bear will be a gift that always reminds them of a specific time in their life.

Here at Grin & Bear, you can even create a bespoke teddy bear. Michael will work with you to design a teddy bear that is everything you hoped it would be and more, making it the best possible gift you could give someone. Having the ability to choose every aspect of the teddy bear, from the fabric to the finishing bow, enables you to create a soft toy that you know someone dear to you will love and appreciate forever.

Support you through difficult times

Not only do teddy bears look really cute, but they also provide comfort and companionship over the years to anyone who owns one. They are the perfect friend to have and many will turn to their soft teddy bear when they’re in need of love, support or even a cuddle.

When they’re facing difficult situations, both children and adults will reach for their teddy bear and this soft toy can alleviate emotional pain. Even at a time when someone doesn’t feel like talking about their feelings, a teddy bear will be there to remind them of better times and help them to remember that they are loved by many.

Often, teddy bears will help people feel close to their loved ones too, especially when they have passed away. A teddy bear that was gifted by a grandparent, for example, or made with the clothing of a particular person will become an invaluable keepsake. This teddy bear will help to lift someone on their saddest days and bring a smile to their face.

A Perfect First Day at School Gift

A child starting school often needs extra reassurance and a teddy bear makes a perfect “First Day at School” gift for a young child making their first step outside the family home. You can even discuss with your child what they will do with teddy at school to alleviate any fears of being alone on their first day and so they feel that they have a friend to share any first day nerves with. Consider a personalised teddy bear embroidered with your child’s name and the date they start school to mark the occasion.

Be by your side throughout new adventures

Often, when flying the nest, whether they’re going to university or purchasing their own house, a teddy bear is one of the only toys from childhood that a young adult will take with them. Unlike other toys that are thrown away or donated to charity, a teddy bear is rarely parted with.

Having a teddy bear by their side can help to make new adventures seem less daunting and provide continued support and comfort as someone starts a new chapter in their lives. This soft toy tends to remind people of their childhood as they grow up and it can help them to feel as though they have a little piece of home with them when they move somewhere new.

Even when travelling, whether this is for a long weekend or a few months, taking a teddy bear with them can prevent people from feeling lonely and homesick. This cherished soft toy is an essential item when packing a suitcase and leaving it behind simply isn’t an option, for people of all ages going on all types of adventures.
