Remembrance Day – Forces Keepsakes

Forces Keepsakes

Forces Keepsakes are very special keepsake bears in the Blazer Bear workshop. Since 11/11 is approaching we are all wearing our poppies and thinking about all the Forces keepsakes we have made. We have created a poppy bear as a reminder of the sacrifices the armed forces have made. Because so many have given their lives  we are incredibly proud to have been able to make keepsake bears out of such wonderful uniforms.

Because all the uniforms come with interesting detail each bear is a treasured keepsake. The Blazer Bear team always make the keepsake bears a true representation of their owner since these uniforms have clearly been worn with pride .

The Forces Keepsake bears have been lovingly created using the uniforms, buttons, badges and braiding. A particularly fun keepsake bear  was made for a Kings Trooper soldier. As the uniform  contained gold braid and gold buttons … Read more of this post

Family keepsakes

Family keepsakes

Over the past few months we have made some wonderful keepsakes for siblings, twins and even triplets. Some customers want the bears or cushions to be exactly the same, some want them to be different.

Our Mum used to dress up us in the same outfits but one was blue and one was pink. By the time we were 8 years old we were desperate to be different from each other. However our friends who are twins still love their similarities. Pru has triplets as well as having a son two years older. All her children are completely different so there were a lot of outfits to organise when they were younger!! So when we receive … Read more of this post

Personalised gifts

Personalised Gifts

Personalised gifts have really exploded in popularity over the last 3 years. Customers want gifts to be thoughtful, personal and unique, the options are endless. We have really enjoyed introducing personalisation to all our products and are constantly experimenting with our new machines.

We started with our Blazer Bears and added embroidery to the back. Unfortunately it was too late to add any to our original bear Blaze. However, we hope to make a friend for him soon with our logo on the back. Customers have loved adding names, dates and messages to their bears. Whether personalised gifts for teachers or school leavers, or as a class mascot.

Some have embroidery added to sports bears or special memory bears. We have bears made for 50ths with a message from children and good luck bears for those perhaps travelling or leaving for a new job. They make a wonderful … Read more of this post

Keepsake Gifts

This week was the first of our Christmas Fairs that we are attending this year. We were at the Mayfield Michaelmas Fair displaying all our keepsake gifts including our bears and cushions together with our new baby keepsake range and our Christmas keepsakes.  All our products the latter can be personalised with names, dates or a special message.  Cottenden Country Market in Stonegate is our next fair on Thursday October 12th. Back after a short break after much demand!


The Blazer Bear Team have been busy in the workshop as always creating special keepsakes for our customers. This week we have made some gorgeous bears, cushions and Christmas aprons . One of the bears we made was created from a blazer which was 50 years old. With some of the spare material our fantastic machinists also made some small PE kit bags from the sports tops.
