Bear Bunch and Your Family Tree

Researching your family tree is a rewarding experience, and finding a unique way to represent the results of your research can be a lot of fun. Children and adults love to know more about what their ancestors were like, how they lived and how they have influenced current traditions and interests in the family. A Best Bear Bunch figurine is a unique way to display your family history with appealing characters and a charming emphasis. These bear gifts make wonderful personalized family gifts for grandparents or children.

How do you make great family tree personalized gifts?

  1. Bear gifts from Best Bear Bunch can be customized with up to 42 characters. While this alone may not display all of your known ancestors, you can select a different figurine for each parent’s family grouping in order to include larger sets of ancestors in your personalized family gifts.
  2. For example, if you are customizing figurines representing your ancestors for a wedding anniversary, you can build around a simple representation of the anniversary couple. Create individual figurine sets for each of the couple’s children. Create separate figurines showing the husband’s family and the wife’s family.
  3. If you are simply looking for a grandparent gift, use grandparents, their children and grandchildren to create your keepsake.

How well have you researched your family tree? If you’re looking to get the whole family tree on a figurine, now is the best time! Build a Bear Bunch Figurine over $59 and you’ll receive a free personalized ornament! Use the exclusive code “bearbunch4free” at checkout.

Celebrate our 24th Anniversary for 24 Hours Sale!

Join us in our 24th Beary Big Birthday celebration! This Saturday we celebrate 24 years of making family members smile with beary cute bear gifts.

How we began - 24 years ago, in 1988 an artist, Sheila Phillipp, sculptured the first bear figurines which would later become Bears in Chairs figurines. A lot can change in 24 years, such as the company moving to Hainesport, NJ, but some things have never changed.

  1. For one, you can always get free personalization of names on your bear figurine.
  2. Though the original artist is no longer part of the company, all figurines are still handmade.
  3. The customer always deserves the most unique piece!

Why Anniversaries Matter – it’s not just our anniversary that we’re celebrating. This Saturday is also a reason to note every couple that has ever had their special day made even more significant with the Anniversary Bear gift figurine. It’s a day about love – about continuing love and growth. It’s about looking forward to your own anniversaries, or even just looking forward to celebrating the holidays with someone dear.

Give Gifts – Give Thanks – Give Love

It’s never too early to thank your family. Why? Just because. Think Christmas is the only time for giving loved family member gifts? Thanksgiving dinner may be the only time you see a loving Grand Aunt, Grandfather, or cousin from the other side of the family who spends Christmas elsewhere. So why not thank them this Thursday with a bear gift, a loving show of thanks, or a personalized gift from the heart?

Give Thanks - Did you know busiest airports on Thanksgiving are in Chicago, Los Angeles, Massachusetts, New York and San Francisco? That’s all across the county. Just think of all the family members traveling home, just to see you.

Give a Hand - Can you believe that most people will spend their Thanksgiving weekend watching TV, more so than socializing or preparing food even? Don’t be that person – just watching the football game. Help in the kitchen, talk to family, and above all else – help with the clean up!

Give Time - The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade began in 1924. For Grandma and Grandpa, that is most of their lifetime. They probably remember old floats, performances, and other old Thanksgiving traditions. Ask them about these memories.

What will you give this Thanksgiving Day?

Honor Your Mother, Father and Grandparents with Gifts

“Grandparents are a family’s greatest treasure, the founders of a loving legacy. The greatest storytellers, the keepers of traditions that linger on in cherished memory. Grandparents are the family’s strong foundation. Their very special love sets them apart. Through happiness and sorrow, through their special love and caring, grandparents keep a family close at heart.”  – Beary Wise Unknown Author

It’s hard to imagine the family as a whole without the matriarch and patriarch. The papa and mamma of your beary big family are so deserving of your love and gratitude. We’d like to thank all loving grandparents and encourage you to send a hug, a gift, or just a call to a grandparent in your lift this week. If not today, then when? Just think of all a grandparent does.

  • Keeping family stories alive.
  • Lending a hand when a baby sitter is needed.
  • Teaching valuable skills.
  • Providing a shoulder for children with scraped knees.
  • Giving advice to the new parent.
