What could be simpler and more meaningful than a red wooden heart carved with your loved one’s name and a kiss? Perfect for Valentine’s Day or any other time of year, they could also be used as Christmas ornaments – get one for each of you, and one each for the kids too.
These are individually carved and painted to order. There is a huge range of options including larger wooden message hearts, which can have a romantic message of 6-8 words painted on. There is also a pretty range that would make fantastic wedding favours. They all come from UK site Country Hearts.
The red wooden heart pictured measures 3 ½ inches or 8cm high and costs GBP 6.50, about $10. It’s worth noting that delivery charges outside the UK aren’t cheap, so you’d have to order several items for it to be worthwhile.
I love the simplicity of this little carved wooden box and its stylish red and black color scheme. It’s made from seasoned Linden wood in the Tatra mountains of Poland and carved and decorated in traditional style by artisans there.
Just under three inches across it is the perfect little treasure to give as a romantic gift with a little keepsake inside. The top swivels open to reveal a little round hollow just big enough to hold a ring, pendant, lucky charm or whatever takes your fancy.
Little girls would love these too, so it you want to surprise a dear daughter, granddaughter or niece on Valentine’s Day this would be just the thing.

Wooden hearts have their own special feel, warm and smooth, with the wonderful grain of the natural wood to trace your fingers around. This beautiful heart paperweight is made from sustainable olive wood by a Palestinian West Bank artisan. Sourced by Green Heart, it is ethically produced and traded, so makes a perfect Valentine’s gift for the eco-conscious man or woman.
The heart paperweight is quite small, 3 inches across, but perfect to hold in your hand, so it really doesn’t have to function as a paperweight, just as a carefully crafted piece of natural beauty!
The olive wood heart costs $21.95 from Green Heart.

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.
