Harrods kindly sent us their gorgeous 2017 Christmas Bear- Bertie the Bear. He is so lovely and makes a lovely gift and treasured collectable.
Bertie, the Harrods 2017 Christmas bear is 31cm and comes dressed in his hooded tartan-sleeve jacket, He loves nothing more than spreading festive cheer with kindness and cuddles. This teddy makes a charming gift that’s sure to be enjoyed for years to come.
I always remember my own first visit to the iconic Harrods Store in Knightsbridge. I really wanted to buy a Harrods Bear and a Harrods shopping bag! If visiting at Christmastime, (the lights are amazing), Bertie makes a great souvenir of your visit to the store.
Bertie is such great quality with many details- such as the Harrods embroidery on his left foot.
He even has Harrods embossed on his zip.
He is available to buy for £27.99 and a miniature Christmas Tree decoration version is also on sale for £10. There is even a 91cm Harrods Bertie Bear that will set you back a mere £400 (no, that’s not a typo).
Bertie the Christmas Bear was going to join our family and be on display over Christmas but he loves to spread kindness. I recently spotted that a local fundraising event needed a bear to take part in their “Name a Bear” competition. I realised that we could help and Christmas is of course about giving, so Bertie the Bear has been donated and will be renamed. He will raise money for Value Independence who provide support to help people to gain new skills, improve confidence and become more independent. We are off later to guess his new name and who knows may even win him back but either way we know he’ll go to a good home.
Thanks Bertie the Christmas Bear for spreading your kindness this Christmas (also thank you to Harrods for sending us Bertie!).
