Handmade gifts are so precious and sentimental. My boyfriend recently carved me a beautiful wooden heart pendant which I wear on an antique brass chain. It is made of pine wood which is a soft wood and easier to carve with. He then sanded, stained and polished the heart numerous of times to get a nice glossy golden brown colour. It is very simple wood crafting, but the time, love, and work he put in it makes it so much more special.
