I love, love, love this stunning wooden heart sculpture! Wouldn’t it make a wonderful romantic gift for your beloved? Smooth natural wood grain, polished to a sensual gleam and just begging to be caressed.
The wood is Monkey Pod, from Hawaii and I love the way the sculptor has used the grain, it almost looks like there is a Cupid’s arrow piercing the heart.
Perfect for a 5th wedding anniversary gift – the wood anniversary or for any romantic gift, as long as your loved one loves wood!
The heart is big and solid. 14”x15”x7” and weighing 16.2 lbs, so delivery is going to add another $50 to the U.S.

Less a romantic gift than a loving and caring one, this warm heart pillow is the perfect soothing and nurturing aid when you need the comfort of warmth.
It just goes in the microwave to warm for a minute or two and then can be hugged or placed on aches and pains to soothe them. Or else it can be put in the freezer and used for cold therapy for bumps and bruises.
The pillow is covered in red velvet and its filling also contains cinnamon, clover and eucalyptus for some extra aromatherapy treatment. Maybe not for Valentine’s Day but it would make a welcome Mother’s Day gift, Christmas gift, or just get it for yourself!
The pretty heart packaging turns this pillow into a great gift for someone you love

Sometimes chocolate is the quickest way to a woman’s heart and packaging it a lush red velvet heart box makes it into a romantic gesture that will be appreciated.
This box comes with a dozen of Astor’s classic hazelnut truffles – perhaps more welcome than a dozen red roses…? depends on the chocoholic status of the woman concerned!
Look out for more gorgeous heart chocolate boxes being added to the Amazon range as we get nearer to Valentines Day – there are rumors of organic truffles, luxury Belgian chocolates and more!

The bright heart pattern on this sturdy shopping bag is enough to catch at the heart of any eco romantic. Gorgeous colours, trendy pattern and clever design it’s a winner for all of us grocery shoppers who make a habit of re-using shopping bags.
The bag folds away into a smaller carrying pouch, so you get two for the price of one. It’s made of durable polyester, so is light to carry and can easily be tucked into a handbag to carry your groceries home later.
Its trendy design makes it a great little gift for friends or stocking stuffer for family. Another bright idea is to use one of these bags instead of gift wrap, so your friends are getting two gifts in one !
