Bear Hugs Bear
I am pleased (and relieved) to announce the opening of  the new Valentine's Day Teddy Bear Gifts page!!!!   It is indeed a relief to have finished the revamping of that page.  Hopefully it has a cleaner look, and even though still rather long, not nearly as long as it was.

Also, I am BEAR-y happy to introduce you to my newest Valentine Bear, Bear Hugs Bear.  She's too cute for words, you'll just have to go take a look at her. (though you can see a sneak peek in this blog post)

I have one more new Valentine bear I hope to introduce to you next week.

I also changed my "tag" line for this year.  It is now "The wonderful world of teddy bear gifts for grown ups". 

Your discount code for 2017 is still "bfg" for 15% off any order.  Sample items included until further notice.

I have been busy working on a project.  Even though Valentine's Day is still over a month away, I have to start thinking about it and promoting it now.  My first goal in promoting Valentine's Day gifts this year is to re organize my Valentine web page.  That involves making new pages for products who were previously only found on the Valentine's page.  So, here is a sneak peek for you: http://www.bearfamilygifts.com/valentine-new.html There are a few links that do not work yet, but I am getting closer to having everything functional.  I hope this makes some of the products easier to see, rather than scrolling down through a very long page. 

I am working on one or two new products as well that I will let you know about as soon as they are live.

Bring on 2017!!

It's that time of year when we say goodbye to one year and welcome in another year.  Good bye 2016 and Hello 2017!  What does the coming of the new year mean to you?  I am not a New Year's Eve party person, so my night is spent quietly at home, going to bed before midnight.  I rarely ring in the new year anymore.  I change the calendar on January 1st and spend time with family, that is about it. 

Business wise, though, it is a time to reflect on what worked and what didn't, and look forward to what's ahead.  It's also time to catch up on paperwork and get ready to close the books on 2016.

So, what is ahead for Bear Family Gifts in 2017?  I don't expect a lot of major changes.  I will have to raise the shipping charges a little to cover the increase in price that the postal service had in 2016.

I am almost out of the adorable bunnies shown in this picture.  I do not have a supplier to buy more, so I will have to discontinue all products using bunnies once they are gone.  That makes me sad as these bunnies were really cute and I enjoyed using them.



 I hope to have a new Valentine's product up in a few weeks, as well as a re organization of the Valentine's Gift Ideas page.

I always dream of cleaning up my crafting room/office, but that never seems to get very far.  Maybe this will be the year!

Be sure to check out my Sample Sale page for some great deals.

Happy New Year!!
