A Hand Hug is a unique expression of love. It's different from a regular hug because it just involves using your hand. You can give a Hand Hug to your friends, co-workers, peers, or anyone who has a hand. Hand Hugs cheer up people's days and allow you to connect with them.
You look like your having a bad day, here's a Hand Hug!

Me: I totally taught Mr. Shepherd the Handhug!
