I’d never thought of using cast iron for stepping stones before I saw this gorgeous heart one from Sunset Vista, but I have to say I love the textured rust red finish and the curvy shape.
I can imagine using this for all sorts of other things besides a stepping stone, perhaps as a rustic centrepiece to an outdoor dining table, or even just as a decoration propped against a wall.
It measures 12 inches across and weighs 7 pounds and surprisingly is eligible for free shipping on Amazon, as long as your order is $25 or more.
Heart Cast Iron Stepping Stone, 12-Inch costs $20.99 from Sunset Vista on Amazon.
With spring in the air a romantic picnic with your beloved should be on the cards. What better than this heart shaped wicket picnic basket from Laura Ashley to hold an exquisite selection of gourmet goodies and set the mood for romance?
It contains two wine glasses, two plates, two sets of cutlery, a bottle opener, lest you forget that all-important tool, and a floral wine cooler – pink champagne, or chilled rosé do you think?
The only little quibble I have is that there doesn’t seem to be room for a huge amount of food – more antipasto than three course dinner, but if it’s romance we’re talking who’s going to be concentrating on the food anyway!
With Laura Ashley’s renowned floral fabric lining the basket this could be a wonderful spring time gift for that special romantic girl, even better filled with her favourite delicacies … and don’t forget the chocolate truffles!
Laura Ashley 3A097061 Heart Shaped Picnic Basket, Cressida currently costs $75.99 down from $131.99 at Amazon.
This has to a totally unexpected gift for the romantic heart lover: a heart shaped birdbath hand-made in richly colored blown glass!
While it’s not exactly the sort of romantic keepsake to slip across the table at a candlelit dinner (at 10” by 9” of solid glass, it is a sizeable package), it will certainly make an impression! It comes with a pole to mount it on in the garden and would look stunning lit up in the sunlight with water rippling in it.
Each bird bath is hand made by a team of three at Island Art Glass on Whidbey Island Washington and comes in Cobalt Blue Citron green or Red. The blown glass heart birdbath costs $59.99 and is available through Made in Washington.
Berg cypress with natural hand-carved hearts
If you’re looking for a loving gift for an eco-warrior, what better than a tree? And a tree hung with natural hand carved hearts from a sustainable source gets even more romantic green stars!
These trees come from Heart Wood, a South African tree gifting company, who have gone all the way to make sure that this is a truly green gift, with recycled packaging, indigenous tree choices and loads of love put into the whole concept.
Love the idea but you’re not in South Africa? Try Tree2myDoor, a tree gifting company who deliver special trees as wedding gifts, Valentines gifts and more in the UK.
And in the US you can send gift boxed trees and bushes of various indigenous and exotic species from Colorado spruce to Ginkgo tree.
Assegai tree with hand-painted red hearts
If these little trees don’t make a big enough statement for you, how about buying an indigenous large tree from a specialist nursery. These can be any size up to about 3m tall or larger if you choose. Hang the tree of your choice with hearts and have it delivered to her door. Make sure you’re there to help plant it though, otherwise the romantic gesture might not go down all that well. Better still hire the tree planting service to do all the planting and maintenance of the tree.
I love the bright colors and quirky romance of this hand-painted metal garden sculpture – I know it would look great in my herb garden and it would make a great romantic gift for anyone else who loves growing things.
It is hand-made by Judie Bomberger, artist renowned for her collaboration with Cirque du Soleil and her classic Beatles metal sculptures, painted in strong and joyful colors and finished with a weather resistant clear coat, so should look great for years whatever the weather. The sculpture is 11” high, atop a 16” stake.
How about combining this with a really beautiful potted plant, or several, to romance your gardening sweetheart?
Costs $74.95 from Wind and Weather.
