Does your partner regard the usual Valentines Day cards and gifts as soppy or twee? SERIOUSLY masculine, rustic, chunky, macho hearts, carved from rock, brick, and concrete! 

 

The example above, looking like it  came from the cross-country tyre tread of a 4x4, is cut from a hard blue-black victorian pavior.  It measures 160mm wide, 53mm thick and weighs 1.8kg (6.25" x 2.1" x 4lbs).

 

These diamond-stud brick paviors are collected and sold at reclamation yards. Very few get thrown out unless too badly damaged to sell - so I don't expect to find many for me to work with.  

 

Smaller hearts, 10-12cm wide, and 6-9cm wide, are sometimes available.
