The cutest day of the valentine’s week is already here and if you ae still wondering how Teddy day got itself into the week of love, it has a long history that dates back to the time when former US President, Theodore Roosevelt was in office.

Gifting teddies is considered a symbol of love and care towards your partner and showing them they mean a lot to them. But the day is believed to have got its name from former US President, Theodore 'Teddy' Roosevelt after a cute teddy was designed in his honour following his decision to not kill an animal during one of his hunting trips.

Since the creation of the first teddy bears which sought to imitate the form of real bear cubs, "teddies" have greatly varied in form, style, color, and material. 

Teddy bears are among the most popular gifts for children and are often given to adults to signify love, congratulations, or sympathy during Valentine's Week. A teddy bear is someone which can be easily found in a girl's room. It helps them fight tough times like PMS or menstrual pain, loneliness.


It is believed that the first official teddy bear was made by Morris Michtom, a New York-based candy store owner in Brooklyn, New York.

Here's what colour teddy you should gift your loved one depending on the stage of your relationship:


A pink teddy means that your crush loves you back and adores you.


It signifies love. You can gift it to your girlfriend or wife.


It signifies joy, hope and sunshine. You can gift a cute little orange teddy bear to your loved ones to wish them the happiness in the world.
