What does GBH mean?

Great big hug

Imagine wanting to give your loved ones a big, warm hug when they’re feeling down, but you can’t because they live too far away or you’re stuck in a lockdown. That’s when GBH comes in handy. This cool slang is short for ‘Great Big Hug’, which you can send digitally to bring a smile to their face.

It’s quite common to see older folks who are good with modern lingo using GBH. But, literally, anyone can use it. It can be a sweet gesture between friends, or a romantic exchange between loved ones.

Parents or grandparents often use GBH to send virtual hugs to their kids or grandkids. It’s a way to bridge the physical gap, especially when face-to-face visits aren’t possible.

How to use GBH? Simply type GBH or in a text message or online chat. It’s the perfect way to comfort someone or just let them know you’re thinking about them. This heartwarming slang is usually used during emotional moments – be it joyous or sad. But, it’s also perfect for times when you’re simply missing someone.
