Yum Hugs, a hug in a box.
Yum Hugs is delivering a hug in a box straight to the doors of homes, offices and hospitals around Adelaide. They are the ultimate comfort food gifting service.

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of home you get from eating something carefully and lovingly prepared. Can you feel the glow of nostalgia in your tummy? That’s a Yum Hug! 

Yum Hugs love to recreate that emotion with what Michelle Boyd, Owner and Sweet Treat Creator, calls a ‘hug in a box’. Tasty, homemade afternoon tea-style treats, personally delivered by herself or her husband, Ian, to someone you care about.

Yum Hugs was born from the idea of a ‘hug in a box’ at a time when you couldn’t physically hug anyone due to Covid restrictions. Michelle says, “I feel right now there was a need for connection and warmth between people. Also cake. Always cake.”

For all your comfort food gifting needs

Yum Hugs is the delicious way to brighten up someone’s day. It could be for:

  • An older adult who would love to be thought of
  • A new Mum adjusting to a totally different way of life
  • A work colleague having a crappy morning
  • Yourself after a long week in the office or caring for loved ones
  • Or anyone who could use a sweet boost to their day!

Yum Hugs uses seasonal produce to make sure every ingredient is packed with flavoured. They also aim to use as much recycled and recyclable packaging as they can.

Michelle always endeavours to use, where possible, Australian made and owned products and Yum Hugs is a passionately South Australian business.

There’s no greater gift than homemade goodies

Michelle, Yum Hugs
