And it's a perfect way to keep your love with you at all times.
Wooden Love Spoons
Another beautiful romantic gift idea is a Wooden Love Spoon, they are mainly a Celtic tradition and originated hundreds of years ago. The custom was that a man would spend time carving a wooden love spoon for the woman he loved, if she accepted this gift then the couple would be seen as being together and a relationship would begin.
We were lucky to be in Wales on holiday when we got engaged, Wales is
famous for it's Love Spoons, and it seemed perfect to buy one while we
were there. All of the spoons are unique but they all have symbols that
mean something, ours has a heart meaning love, a lock meaning security
and a bell meaning a wedding or anniversary. They are a very romantic
gift and ours still brings back happy memories 15 years later.
Other symbols you may see on wooden love spoons that would be great for an anniversary gift
are; a ball in a cage - love held safe, a chain - to stay together
forever, a diamond - wealth or good fortune, horseshoe- good luck, knot -
eternal love, twisted stem - two lives become one, security - I shall
look after you.
For our 5th wedding anniversary
gifts we received a beautiful wooden fruit bowl and that for us is the beauty
of wood, it lasts forever and can be both beautiful and practical.
