A lovespoon is a decorated wooden spoon.

The custom of giving lovespoons carved by a young man and presented to his sweetheart as a token of his affection and/or betrothal originated in Wales during the 17th century. The earliest known lovespoon dates from 1667 and is part of a collection at the Museum of Welsh Life in St. Fagans near Cardiff. Today, the custom has expanded to include weddings, anniversaries and friendship gifts.

A Lovespoon is the perfect gift for a special friend!

I've tried to give you the best photos possible of the actual carving you will receive. However, I understand that it's difficult to see what a carving really looks like without having it in your hand. I want you to feel confident about purchasing one of my carvings so please feel free to return any purchase, for any reason, for a full refund
