National Hugging Day With Huggy Buddha

January 20, 2016 in Products We Love

Did you know that January 21, 2016, is National Hugging Day? How fun right? Today I would like to introduce you to one of my favorite items that are absolutely perfect for Nation Hugging Day. It is called Huggy Buddha. As the stress of the holiday is finally winding down what better time than for a hug? 

Huggy Buddha is a creation of Sandra de Vries. When she was about to become a grandmother, she wanted to give her grandchild something a little out of the ordinary. As the owner of a boutique shop specializing in Eastern home decorations, one idea came straight to mind: a Happy Buddha, an ancient good luck symbol for a happy life, made of plush. After all, what more could you wish for a newborn baby – or anyone for that matter – than a happy life?

To be honest, everytime I look at this Huggy Buddha it just makes me smile. It is the perfect size just to keep on my desk for those days that are just not going right, and I really could just use a hug. The Huggy Buddha comes in multiple sizes which are perfect! Not only is he super cute but so soft and perfect for National Hugging Day. 

Not only would these be the perfect gift for yourself but it would be an excellent gift! Huggy Buddha is a fun and unique way to celebrate National Hugging Day this January. These are now available for purchase in the United States from GUND, a premier plush manufacturer. Prices start range from $12.00 to $30.00, so the price is perfect! I would recommend grabbing a Huggy Buddha this National Hugging Day and get your hug on. They have always said that an apple a day keeps the doctor away but for me, a hug a day is the best of all medicine.
