Πολλά φιλιά


Explanation:
polla filia = many kisses is a rather common expression to someone who is very close.

A word-for-word translation would not be very native-sounding.

Αγκαλίτσες και φιλάκια


Explanation:
It does sound native, as long as you're addressing people really-really close to you, as its tone is more than just friendly. You wouldn't write 'hugs and kisses' if that was not the case anyway.

HTH,
