5. Home of a Rusty Old Fisherman & the Catch of His Life
Keeping with the fishing theme for a moment, here is a crusty yet sweetly romantic quote for a fisherman and his beloved wife – a vintage-style wood plaque that says, “Home of a rusty old fisherman and the catch of his life.”
Get yours here, and it can come with a customizable hanging name plank that attaches to the bottom of the plaque with hooks.

8. Always Kiss Me Goodnight
This is a simple, intimately romantic quote perfect for the bedroom. You can find this quote elegantly depicted as a wall decal as shown above, a reclaimed wood sign, a wide wooden sign, or custom engraved along with your names or other text on one of our alder wood plaques.
9. I Still Fall For You Every Day
This is one of those things that needs to be said over and over in keeping the romance alive – “I still fall for you every day.”
Get this quote made onto a plaque here.
10. You’re the Best Part of My Day
A truly heartwarming quote. Let him or her know that “You’re the best part of my day.” This is a sentiment perfect for the home or office.
11. You Should Be Kissed, And Often, And By Someone Who Knows How
If your relationship shares the glorious passion of Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler, then this is the perfect quote for you. Give a nice framed typography print like the one above, or have the quote laser carved onto a wood plaque.
12. Wuthering Heights Romantic Quote Plaque
Let’s stick with the classic lit theme for a bit. In Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, Catherine says of Heathcliff, “Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”
The plaque pictured above can be personalized and given along with a copy of the book (try this gorgeous boxed set for the literature buff), or perhaps the very best film version. This will result in a memorable and beloved literature-themed romantic gift.
13. Love is Patient, Love is Kind
Possibly the most famous quote in the world about love. The plaque above is available here and features a paraphrase from I Corinthians 13 in the Holy Scriptures:
Love is patient; love is kind. Love does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. Love is not selfish, it is not angry, it keeps no record of wrong. Love hates evil but loves the truth. Love never fails.
We’ve often engraved these verses on our Alder wood plaques, our dark Walnut wood plaques, and our rustic Natural Bark wood plaques. With any of these, you can enter in the text from the Bible verse of your choice and even include names, family names, wedding dates, and more.
Here are some more fun and romantic quotes to consider for creating a special plaque or wall decor piece for your beloved:
- Pride & Prejudice. “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”
- Pride & Prejudice (again). “You have bewitched me, body and soul.”
- Friends. “It’s always been you.” Get a cute plaque along with the complete series.
- Hermann Hesse. “If I know what love is, it is because of you.” Print download here.
- Rustic style. “All of me loves all of you.”
- Hope and anticipation. “Grow old with me. The best is yet to be.”
- Romantic Humor. We’ll leave you with this last romantic quote for the oddball couple: “I want to be the reason you look down at your phone and smile. Then walk into a pole.”
