Lovespoons are a traditional Welsh symbol of affection and the symbolic meanings and intricate details of each Lovespoon reflects the hopes and wishes of the giver.
Traditionally, a Lovespoon would have been presented as an indication of a desire to court; however, over time the meaning of a Lovespoon has evolved and today it is given on many different occasions as a romantic gesture depicting one’s true affection for the other. So, if you are searching for a truly sentimental gift for someone this Christmas, then a Welsh Lovespoon is the ideal way to show them exactly how much they mean to you.
No matter what your relationship status is, a lovespoon can be carved specific to your situation. The symbols that are presented in the design represent different personal feelings, and different kinds of love that can be shared; therefore, you can make a selection of whichever symbols are the most appropriate.
