Some History

The custom of giving love spoons as a token of affection first began in Wales in the 16th Century. They were given to a loved one as a courting gift (in much the same way as you would give someone flowers today). Each one is carved from one piece of wood, showing the skill of the expert carver.

Different symbols are used in the carvings which have different meanings, for instance a ship denotes smooth passage through life, a keyhole denotes home and security.

Despite their origins as romantic gifts, they are now given as presents for every occasion from wedding keepsakes to birthdays and new baby and anniversary gifts – and particularly as they are made from wood they are ideal gifts for the 5th wedding anniversary.

You can therefore be assured the love spoons you see on the following pages are of the highest quality and individually carved in Wales.
