Whether it’s for a friend, a special someone or for yourself, a stuffed animal makes a wonderful gift. They are soft, cuddly and just so cute. Who can possibly resist? Whether it’s their goofy friendly grin or their cuddly bellies, a stuffie appeals to anyone – even adults! But just what kinds of stuffed animals make an adult smile? Any! But if you are searching for a gift and not sure where to start, there are some that we would suggest first. Here are the six best stuffed animals for adults, from Sam the Sloth to Unique the Unicorn.
Yes, Stuffies Are for Adults, Too!
Okay, first let’s address the stuffed elephant in the room. Stuffed animals are not just for kids. Adults – yes, grown adults – can appreciate a stuffed animal just as much. In fact, there are many benefits to owning a stuffed animal as an adult. Not convinced? Here are just a few ways a stuffed animal can brighten any adult's day.
- With a stuffed animal's soft fur, they reduce stress similar to the way a pet does, releasing mood-boosters like serotonin and oxytocin.
- Stuffed animals bring back pleasant memories of childhood and nostalgia.
- A stuffed animal can help adults grieve through a loss (whether that’s a death or a divorce) and to deal with existential fear.
- Stuffed animals can bring companionship to someone when they are missing home and feeling lonely.
Now that you know what these cuddly creatures are capable of, let’s explore some of SendAFriend’s best stuffed animals for adults.Explore Cute Stuffed Animals
