Sydney's Blog - May at The Drifting Bear

There's not much better in life than chasing a ball around…apart from maybe head scratches…and barking at the postman.  But chasing a ball is the best and, when I settle down with my hu-mum and hu-dad at the weekend to watch some TV I can see I'm not the only one who enjoys it.  I've never really understood the rules of football, there seems to be too much kicking and not enough chewing of the ball, but it still looks like a great way to pass an afternoon.

With Fathers Day approaching why not indulge the football mad dad in your life and, instead of arguing over when you can turn off Match Of The Day, let him settle down to watch the footie on the sofa with our comfy Match Day Seat Reservation Personalised Cushion.

Designed to replicate a season ticket, this personalised cushion gives the holder prime position in front of the box on match day!  You can personalise the cushion with the name of the 'ticket holder' along with the name of the team they support and details of their preferred match day seat.

Have a whole family full of football fans?  Why not reserve their seats next to dad on the sofa with a whole set of cushions, each with their own seat number!

If your dad is not a football fan don't fear, the lovely designers here at The Drifting Bear have created a whole range of gifts perfect for fathers,  just head over to our Fathers Day Gift section on the site where you will find everything we have to offer.

I've just spotted my favourite ball under the table so I'm off now to give it a chase round the office and score some goals!

Sydney's Blog - April at The Drifting Bear

Hello Drifting Bear fans and welcome to my blog for April. In case you didn't know (where have you been?!) I'm Sydney, the Drifting Bear dog. When the team are busy creating and working on your orders I am busy providing lots of support behind the scenes, it's tiring stuff...

Love has been in the air this month as my HuMum and HuDad have got engaged! After a solid hour of celebratory barking I decided that an engagement gift was needed and where else would I look but the Drifting Bear site of course!

I found lots of lovely items in the Engagement Gifts section of the site which, rather handily, collects together all the Drifting Bear designs that we think would make super gifts for those loved up couples in your life.

Top of the engagement gift list has to be our True Love Coordinates Print which can be designed to show the special location where the happy couple first met and began their journey.

Perhaps you would like to document the journey of the happy couple with our Story Of Us Timeline Print.  This design can be created in three different sizes, depending on how many dates are to be featured, and would make a lovely companion print to hang next to a photo print of the big day itself!

Perhaps you know the precise moment where it all began for the lovely couple? Then why not remember the time and date of that momentous first date with our Personalised Special Moment Print. Inspired by retro flip clocks this print would make a stylish and unique gift.

If you know a couple who have just got engaged, or would like to surprise your newly betrothed partner then the Drifting Bear has lots of lovely gift options. Head over to our Engagement Gift section to check them all out.

I'm off to celebrate with my HuMum and HuDad with more barking, I can tell they really appreciate the sentiment.

Sydney's Blog - March at The Drifting Bear

Happy Easter from all at the Drifting Bear Co. but especially from me, Sydney, the Drifting Bear dog! I have been busy this month sniffing out easter eggs wherever I go and, although all I've found so far are sticks for my Hu-Mum and Hu-Dad to throw, I'm sure I will find them soon!
March is a particularly busy month for us here at Drifting Bear HQ as not only is it easter egg eating time but also, Mothers Day! I have already ordered my Hu-Mum's present for this year but, if you haven't got yours yet, it's not too late.  
Our Personalised Bear Family Cushion is proving to be particularly popular for Mothers Day this year. We've already heard from lots of happy customers/bear cubs who will be giving this cushion to their Mama Bears for Mothers Day.
Our luxury cushions are created especially for you, with a concealed zip and completed with your choice of filled cushion pad - fibre or duck feather. Alternatively you can choose just to buy the cover if you already have a cushion pad.  For full details on this huggable gift, head over to our Cushion section of the website where you will find this design and lots of other cushions available to buy for Mothers Day.

The Bear Family design can be personalised to feature your family in bear form and also features a message beneath the bear design, perhaps your family name or any other text of your choice.  Is your mum's sofa already full of cushions? Why not buy this design in print form instead, you can find this design as a print to buy framed or unframed here.

We're sure that mum's will love this cushion and there will be bear hugs all round!

Hello Drifting Bear fans, is everyone sticking to their New Years resolutions?  Mine are to bark less and get tummy rubs more… so far one of these resolutions is going very well!

It seems a lot of you have decided to get fit in 2016 as I've seen lots of people rushing past me when I'm out for a stroll on the beach. A stroll around the Drifting Bear office is all the exercise I need. Why not take a rest from the exercise by sitting down with a cuppa and cuddling up to one of our new cushions...

With Mothers Day fast approaching, our 'A Sit Down and a Nice Cup of Tea' and 'A Well Earned Rest' Personalised Cushions would make the perfect gift for all those hardworking mums out there who need a reminder of what to do on the day itself! 

As well as sharing reassuring messages of relaxation to the recipient these cushions can be personalised with the names of who the cushion is from!

Our luxury cushions are created especially for you, with a concealed zip and completed with your choice of filled cushion pad - fibre or duck feather. Alternatively you can choose just to buy the cover if you already have a cushion pad.

Why not check out our full range of cushions here as there really is something for everyone/every mum!  My hu-mum definitely deserves to put her feet up with one of these super soft and comfy cushions.  I've already placed my order for this fab Favourite Things Cushion  which lists all the favourite things of the recipient. Easy peasy, Sydney & Sydney & Sydney….

It seems everyone is in the mood for love here at The Drifting Bear as we approach the most romantic day of the year we're really enjoying seeing all your Valentines orders come in! Whilst I will be cuddling up on the sofa with my Hu-mum and Hu-Dad I know a lot of you out there will want to be cuddling up to that special someone in your life. Why not make your cuddling even more comfy with our lovely new range of fabulously soft and cosy cushions!

Our Bear Love Faux Suede Cushion is based upon our popular Bear Love Print and is a beautiful gift for your loved one or perhaps a gift for a loved up couple! This cushion is made even more special with the ability to personalise with the names of the couple or any other text of your choosing.


 If bears are not for you then why not take your favourite photo of you and your partner and display it on our Giant Polaroid Style Photo Cushion! This cushion too can be personalised to feature any text, perhaps a reminder of where the photo was taken or even a declaration of love!

 If you and your loved one enjoy relaxing to your favourite song then our Personalised 'Our Song' Faux Suede Cushion would make a perfect addition to your home. Designed in the style of a vinyl record this cushion can be personalised to feature your favourite song as well as a special date.

All our cushion covers have a washable, colourfast and wear resistant finish, due to the unique printing technology used to create them, making them suitable for any household! The design is also printed right to the edge of the fabric, giving this cushion a very high quality finish. Each is then sewn with love, including a concealed zip so you can remove the cover if you need to.

Why not check out the full range of Drifting Bear cushions here and get your Valentines order in quick! I'm off to cuddle up to a cushion myself, they're so huggable and soft, I'm sure no-one would mind if I just took a quick snooze on one!
