Fuzz Therapy Gifting Event


Something tells me Julee Shepard from Fuzz Therapy and I are kindred spirits. Many moons ago {pre-internet}, there lived a little girl who collected teddy bears and dreamed of starting a mail order business to share her love of her treasured fluffy friends. So when Julee reached out to collaborate on a feature, I didn't hesitate for a second because that little girl was me! I know full well the joy of giving and receiving a teddy bear and how these little cuddly creatures can brighten someone's day, room and home. The Fuzz Therapy experience begins with choosing an adorable, squishy-soft teddy bear available in your choice of color ~


Next, select the accompanying gift which may be a bag of melt-in-your mouth Bequet Caramels included in the Original Fuzz Therapy


Or, a delightful selection of thoughtful gifts in the Elegant Fuzz Therapy which we received. In addition to the caramels, this gift assortment includes two mini tins of Bear Necessi-tea {OMG how cute!}, a tea infuser, a lavender aromatherapy stress ball, Advice from a Bear bookmark, and You're the Best petite book ~ all wrapped in a lovely organza drawstring bag. 


The teddy bear and organza gift pouch arrive in a luxurious keepsake box complete with logo, tissue and french wired ribbon. The finishing touch is a choice of gift card with a personal note, I received Bear Hugs ~
This is the most exquisite gift presentation I have received in quite some time. The attention to detail, superior quality materials, and thoughtfulness in selecting complimentary gifts will not go unnoticed by the recipient. Even the corners of the luxury gift box are protected with styrofoam to avoid getting crushed during shipment. Prices range from $89 for the Original Fuzz Therapy which includes the caramels to $119 for the Elegant Fuzz Therapy which I received. For a birthday, get well, thank-you, sympathy, or holiday gift that will become a treasured keepsake, visit Fuzz Therapy online at sendfuzz.com. Fuzz Therapy can also be found on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. And be sure to see below for a beary special surprise!
