Love Spoons have been handcarved in wood to be given as gifts for centuries in Wales, and the tradition is now spreading around the globe as people look for a truly special way of celebrating a Wedding, Anniversary, Engagement, Birthday or just to say Thanks. 

The custom of carving Welsh Love Spoons originated in the rural areas of Wales. As well as giving gifts of sweets and cakes, young men would carve an unique lovespoon for the object of their desire, with hearts and other symbols of love. As we are surrounded today by cheap mass-produced material goods, it is hard for us to imagine the importance that was given centuries ago to the making and giving of such tokens of affection.
