Holiday > Americans are Turning to Traditional Gifts for Holiday Season.

< Previous article  |  Holiday  |  Next article >
(ARA) - With daily lives run by cell phones, e-mails, and ?personal digital assistants,? it?s no wonder Americans feel such a strong desire to reconnect with family, friends, and tradition during the holiday season. And what better way to reconnect than by giving traditional gifts with a handcrafted, personal touch?

Teddy bears have always been a welcomed site on Christmas morning, especially an old fashion teddy bear, like the one you remember as a child. The Vermont Teddy Bear Company handcrafts their teddy bears in the Green Mountains of Vermont and their bears feature the same fully jointed design as the first American Teddy Bear made in 1902.

?It?s an old fashioned high quality teddy bear, just as they describe in their catalog,? said Thomas Frazier, a Vermont Teddy Bear Customer from New Milford, New Jersey.

The company has over 100 bears to choose from and each one is guaranteed for life, so they?re sure to become old friends. Shoppers can choose a bear that reflects a person?s hobby, occupation, or lifestyle, such as the Snowboarder Bear or Biker Bear. The Baby?s First Christmas Bear can be personalized with baby?s name on the bib. Or try some tradition with a twist, with the officially licensed Elvis Bear perfect for that rock-n-roll lover!

In about the same amount of time it takes to wrap a present, holiday shoppers can enjoy stress free shopping by purchasing and sending a personalized, handmade Teddy Bear through the company?s Bear-Gram delivery service. In most cases, delivery to the recipient?s doorstep can be made within 24 hours.

?Last year for Christmas, I wanted to find my wife something special, and my purchase was all that and more,? said Tom Reich from Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. ?The bear was received ahead of the promised date and in beautiful condition.?

The company?s embroidery service makes it easy to get really personal for the holidays. Names and messages can be stitched or printed on many of the bears? outfits, or on Santa hats. Every Bear-Gram gift comes with a free personalized holiday card and chocolate, all packaged in a colorful gift box with an air hole so the bear can ?breathe.?
