A Hug in the Post


When we can’t be with the people we love, the next best thing is to send them something to raise a smile.  So how about a hug in the post!

This wonderful idea from dept.story has everything you need to send someone a life sized hug.  With a large piece of paper to drawer around your arms (when laid out on the floor), a Hold me Tight pencil, to use when drawing your hug (and then to keep or send to your loved one as well!) and a box to send it through the post.

There is even a sheet of fun stickers to decorate your box with.

Each box comes with a red balloon as well.  As Pooh once said ‘nobody can be uncheered by a balloon!’
