Welsh lovespoons are highly decorated carved wooden spoons, that are traditionally given as a romantic gift. The lovespoon is usually decorated with various symbols of love. Traditionally there were given to show off the skills of the carver. Lovespoons have been gifted between lovers, friends, and family as a Welsh custom since the 17th century. Young men would carve a spoon from one piece of wood using symbols of love, including hearts, knotwork, bells, and horseshoes.
Traditional lovespoons are still made and remain a popular gift and souvenir. However, the design can now also be found on many other gifts, from silver jewellery to spoons made of pewter.
A lovespoon brooch makes a beautiful gift or piece for yourself, to show off your Welsh roots or just your love of this meaningful designs. Choose a silver lovespoon brooch in various designs, or for something really special, choose a costume lovespoon brooch in a gold or silver finish, which come in a smart presentation box.

Traditionally, the different symbols on the lovespoons were intended to communicate how a shy suitor really felt.
