Couples have a new unique way to deliver their romantic message this Valentine’s Day all thanks to a frustrated boyfriend and his quest for the perfect "romantic investment." It's called Poetry Bear which combines the power of a greeting card with the power of a teddy bear to create one unforgettable gift!

Couples have a new unique way to deliver their romantic message this Valentine’s Day all thanks to one frustrated boyfriend. It’s called Poetry Bear and it was created by Gary C. Daniels. Like most guys, Mr. Daniels struggled every year with finding that perfect gift for Valentine’s Day. Flowers, cards and chocolate had become not only too predictable, says Mr. Daniels, but also too disposable. “When I invest my money I want to get the best return on investment possible. Yet cards are admired for 30 seconds and placed in a keepsake box, rarely ever opened again. Chocolates disappear within a few days and flowers are dead by the end of the week and tossed out. If the goal is to make a lasting impression and keep yourself in the forefront of your lover’s mind then none of these options make for a very good romantic investment,” says Mr. Daniels.

So he began paying closer attention to what things his girlfriend seemed to keep around for the longest period of time. The answer jumped out at him immediately: teddy bears! “As I looked around my girlfriend’s bedroom I couldn’t help but notice all her stuffed animals and teddy bears. And nearly all of these teddy bears predated our relationship so certainly some of them must have been given to her by other guys,” muses Mr. Daniels. It seems he discovered the one core truth about teddy bears: even when the girl dumps the guy she keeps his teddy bear! “Who could throw out a teddy bear,” asks Mr. Daniels.

It was then that Mr. Daniels hit upon his next idea: if girls keep their Valentine cards and keep their teddy bears why not combine the two? That’s the moment Poetry Bear was truly born. Being a poet, Mr. Daniels wrote a short love poem, printed it on a tiny t-shirt and then dressed a cute, white teddy bear in the shirt. It was such a hit with his girlfriend that he decided the idea had to be shared with other frustrated lovers.

So Mr. Daniels created a website,, featuring an entire series of Poetry Bears using not only his own poems but also those of classic poets such as Shakespeare. “I call those bears, Shakesbear,” says Mr. Daniels, smiling. “So if you’re not into modern poetry you can always rely on the tried-and-true poems of the master himself.”

The best thing about teddy bears, says Mr. Daniels, is that “girls don’t hide these things away. They sit right on the night stand beside her and on the dresser in front of her and on the shelf across her room! Thus a Poetry Bear is the perfect constant reminder and the perfect romantic investment!“
