Surprise gifts are great fun. The gift can, of course, be a pair of Hugging Teddy soft toys for one’s lady love. A warm hug itself can be a gift, especially if the couple is meeting after some time.
Cushion or pillow gift
Research suggests that going to sleep while cuddling with our loved ones helps relax us and makes us sleep better. There are, however, times when the partner is away. A pillow or cushion can become a temporary replacement for the absent spouse.

Bring home a pet
Hugs aren’t for humans only. Animals need love and hugs too. In India, one finds many starving or sick animals on the streets. Look after and feed them or better adopt one instead. The greatest love is the selfless one.
It can be a trip to a place your partner wants to go or would love to visit. It could also be a dining out experience.
Hug more often
Hugging helps us feel attached to our loved ones. Oxytocin also counters the effects of the stress hormone cortisol and helps us relax. During hugging, the pressure exerted on our breastbone or sternum stimulates our thymus gland. The thymus gland helps in the development and maintenance of our immune system. Hence, we should avoid stressful situations and hug more.
