Candy hearts, chocolates, cards, flowers, and stuffed animals are all over the shelves for the upcoming holiday. However, in other countries you won’t find everyone celebrating Saint Valentine. For example, the people of Wales celebrate Satin Dwynwen, the Welsh patron saint of lovers, on January 25th. One traditional romantic Welsh gift is a love spoon. As early as the 17th century, Welsh men carved intricate wooden spoons as a token of affection for the women they loved. Patterns and symbols were carved into these love spoons, each signifying a different meaning. A few examples include horseshoes, which stand for good luck; wheels, which symbolize support; and keys, which symbolize the keys to a man’s heart.
So, if you’re looking for a unique gift for that special someone for Valentine’s Day, we don’t have love spoons but we do have this year’s one-of-kind heart pendant by Magick. Only 125 were made and each is signed and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. The 2018 design is a heart emerging from a lotus and rising toward the light.
