A personalised teddy bear is a great gift for anyone! Big or small everyone loves to receive a special gift that has been made just for them.
The teddy bear first originated in 1902 and since then has become a firm favourite in every household. Here at www.bears4u.co.uk we like the saying ‘A house is not a home without a bear’. Of course now there are many variations on the original cuddly friend including polar bears, pandas, grizzly bears as well as a whole host of character bears of all shapes, sizes and colours.
Customised teddy bears came along much later and Bears4u were one of the first people to offer a teddy bear that could be ordered online and delivered anywhere in the world with a special message embroidered on a jumper.
Most of our teddy bears can be customised in a variety of ways to make them just that extra bit special.
Firstly you can choose a jumper or hoodie which can be embroidered with your own message. With a large variety of embroidery colours to choose from, which can be co-ordinated to the colour of the soft toy. Whether your teddy gift is for a new baby boy or girl, Grandad’s 80th birthday or someone who has graduated and deserves a pat on the back there are plenty to choose from.
If you want to add some more text a ribbon with your message printed on it looks lovely tied around your teddy bears neck.
