Before we give you our guide to Me to You Bears we would like to say a big thank you to everyone for your support through our social media channels (follow us on Facebook and Instagram here) and for your orders. We have loved hearing about the homes that our Bears are off to spend forever in.
As you may have guessed we are passionate about quality and service and all our Teddy Bears come beautifully packaged and include a free gift card!
Our love for bears runs deep and we stock a host of wonderful brands on our website including; Jomanda, Gund Teddy Bears, Teddy Hermann and Mary Meyer, to name a few. It’s important for us to provide you, as our customer, with cuddly toys that we really love to.
Way back when we had the thought of starting Bears4U and we discussed which brands we would like to stock there was one name that we knew we had to have – Me to You Bears. These snuggly and cute soft toys come in so many different varieties and can be bought for SO MANY different occasions it just made sense to us to stock them in our online shop.
But where did this iconic teddy begin?
Well they first appeared in 1987 when Carte Blanche Greetings Ltd created a selection of ‘cute’ bears for a series of greeting cards. The original ‘Tatty Teddy’ as he was known proved to be a great success helping to sell lots of lovely cards.
In 1995 Carte Blanche made some changes to the original teddy bears, turning them from brown to grey and giving them the very recognisable blue nose (which we love by the way! It’s there for kissing don’t you know?!). This was the start of Me to You Bears as we know them. From there the first generation of soft toys were produced in 2000 with soft grey fur and ‘tatty’ patches stitched onto them. The first bears were then remodelled and in 2003 reappeared as the bears we know and love today. Alongside the new generation of bears the Me to You bears also appeared in their own story, telling the tale of how the ‘Tatty Teddies’ came to be known by that name and providing people with a lovely back story and a superb reason to treasure them forever!
Now we’ve spoken a little about the loveable bears backstory let’s move on to finding out about the full range and why we feel there is a Me to You bear for every occasion. Down below we name just a few occasions and at Bears4U HQ we provide personalisation on all our bears so they literally are the perfect gift for any occasion you could think of…even just to say hello on a rainy day!
Me to You Bear Gift Guide
Me to You Bears have a big heart and make an ideal gift for a wedding. We can personalise your bear with the name of the Bride and Groom or dates of the wedding which make it a unique customised gift to treasure forever. There is also a choice of a cute little Bride and Groom pair that are the ideal way to say ‘Congratulations on your Special Day’.
Not forgetting the Bridesmaids, we have teddies especially for them. A 6” teddy showcasing a lovely soft pink heart with ‘Bridesmaid’ embroidered on it. Or if you prefer the favourite personalised Tatty Teddy with the recipients name embroidered on, makes an ideal thank you gift for a flower girl or bridesmaid.
Sometimes it can be hard to think of something extra special to purchase as a christening gift. You want it to be memorable, something to keep and also a delight for the child to see. A bear makes such a special gift for this occasion, and Me to You Bears come in a variety of sizes to suit you and the family you are gifting it to.
There is an extra special Me to You Bear when it comes to Graduation…wearing his gown and donning his graduation cap this bear provides a special gift for anyone celebrating the time they have spent in education. Sitting up on a shelf this bear will serve as a special reminder of all the hard work that your giftee has put in. An alternative option is a bespoke Graduation Teddy with your message embroidered on his gown. A truly unique bespoke gift.
Gifts for new babies
Mark the momentus event which is a new life coming into the world with a loveable soft toy that can be kept as a keepsake. A Me to You bear as it comes or even with a personalised embroidered jumper will be something that can be kept safe and then presented to the child once they’re old enough to play with it.
There is also the rather adorable Tiny Tatty Teddy range especially for babies which is sutiable from birth. We love the little Tiny Tatty Teddy Blankie and with the babies name embroidered on it it really is a lovely little gift for a baby shower, christening or to celebrate the arrival of the baby boy or girl.
You will be my forever always – the Me to You Bears know how to say how we feel about our loved ones. Mark Valentine’s Day with a gorgeous soft and special bear that says all the things we want to hear on the day of love.
Of course you don’t have to wait until Valentines to let your loved one know how much you care. The range of Romantic Teddies is quite extensive with our cuddly friends bearing hearts and messages of love, and if you really want to make a big impression then the biggest of the range is the 24” Me to You Teddy. If that doesn’t impress your girlfriend then you may as well stop trying!
