In this age of faceless technology, genuine crafts are a rare find, a welcome sight amidst the mediocrity of mass-production and low cost. Finding a handcarved item, displaying all of the skill, experience, and artistic talent of the maker is a delightful surprise, a welcome relief from the bland and mundane.

As a special gift for my wife, I decided to buy something special, a personalized romantic gift that speaks volumes and shows her the feelings that I cannot always put into words. I stumbled across the Words of Love collection by Antonio Verdi, love poems delivered in a COSIMO and, ever impulsive, I decided that this would be the perfect romantic gift for her, something to show that I put a little thought into my Valentine’s Day Gift.

This enchanting personalized gift of a love poem in a COSIMO hand carved box proved to be perfect. Carved from rich, textured wood, the box is created by an artist who takes pride in their work, every small detail bringing out the soft grain and subtle hues of the living wood.

To add to the charm and quality of the box, the scroll inside is an extra flourish, the polished handles wrapped with old-style parchment paper making a perfect Valentine's Day gift or birthday gift for a loved one.

Hand Carved Boxes and the Enduring Love

I have been known to dabble in woodcarving and I love the feel, smell and texture of natural wood, a world away from laminates and MDF. As I opened the package, I could see and feel the quality and thought that went into the COSIMO, the skill of a master at their craft. Every chisel mark shows the personality of the maker and highlights the care and intricate detail that they put into every creation.

Every relationship is different, with its own unique set of ups and downs, each of us wandering along a unique, special route to the same location. These personalized boxes capture this journey, a unique keepsake capturing both the transience of life and the enduring strength of true love.

Romantic Love Poems in a COSIMO Hand Carved Box – A Husband’s Savior

Although I am a full-time writer, I am, quite possibly, the worst poet in the entire world, so finding a ready-written beautiful poem, drawn from the Antonio Verdi Words of Love collection saved her from hearing my lumbering, painful attempts at the poet’s art. This COSIMO hand carved box contains a scroll with a wonderful poem, powerful words that can reignite passion and strengthen the bonds of love on this special day.

Too many men leave their Valentine’s Day gifts until the last moment, rushing into the 24/7 store on the way back from work and throwing a few bucks at a straggly bunch of flowers and cheap, heart-shaped chocolates. This hand-carved wood box with poem shows the love of your life how much you care, giving her something to keep forever. Instead of the impermanence of blooms that fade and wither, this gift is something that she can treasure for the rest of her life.

Romantic Gifts for Her – Show Her You Care With A COSIMO

For Valentines Day, an anniversary, or just to show that you care, this COSIMO by Antonio Verdi, complete with romantic poem, is the perfect gift, a memento to hold memories and help you cherish every moment you spend together.

Personally, I cannot recommend the Antonio Verdi love poems in a COSIMO handcarved box highly enough. As a thoughtful romantic gift for her that shows you care, this is a present for life, an elegant gift that will endure through life’s ages.

      @Gus - Cheers, buddy. Always a pleasure :)

      @Katerina - Glad that you enjoyed the article. We need a cunning plan to make sure that your hubby sees it. Maybe print it out and slip it in the sports pages of the newspaper! :D

      @Storytellers - Bird's Eye Maple is a beautiful wood. That was such a thoughtful gift from your friend - mine usually buy me alcohol :D

      I did think about the personalized touch, but I am the world's worst poet!

      @ed77burns - Thanks for the kind words. Glad that you enjoyed the article :)

      @Eiddwin - The Welsh countryside certainly is well worth seeing in the spring. It is a long time since I visited Wales, but hope to visit again.

      @Hello, hello - Thanks for visiting :)

      @Pandoras Box - Always a pleasure and thanks for commenting on my humble Hub :)

      Wow. I am breathless.

      I have an antique birds eye maple box chosen by a special friend as a wedding gift and I cherish it even as I cherish her. You certainly nailed it with this gift. Only improvement would be an original poem, in my opinion-- or a personal letter.

      Thanks, Ingenira - She didn't shout at me for a couple of days, so I think that means she was pleased :D

      Hi Eiddwen - I will have to be careful with this romance thing or my carefully cultivated reputation as a gruff Northerner will be forever damaged! Hope you are looking forward to the beautiful Welsh spring :)

      Very cool idea. My daughter has loved boxes of all kinds since she was very little (13 years old now) and collects them. I will have to tell her about this one. :)
