What are the Five Senses Gifts?
The idea of the five senses gifts is to shop by or create gifts that apply to the five human senses and find something to remind him of each.
The 5 senses include:
After you find a 5 senses gift for him that represents each of the five senses, you can wrap them in a cute way individually or put them in a gift basket or bag together.
Five senses gifts are a great way to give a little bit of everything. This is definitely one of the more fun gift ideas where you can get creative and he won’t know what to expect!
5 Senses Gift for Him
Personally, I see Valentine’s day as another chance to spoil who I’m with and not because I have to, but because I want to.
Normally I would get chocolate, a teddy bear and flowers (the typical)–which is totally great of course that this is the classic go-to gift guys like to buy a girl, but that’s something I could do for him that included something really unique yet personalized?
Simple, a 5 senses gift for him!
It’s easy for guys to pick up a bouquet of flowers, girls are pretty well known for what shop for, but with guys, it can be fun because girls have the brains and creativity to come up with more exciting ideas!
I love the five senses gift idea because it’s almost like a game. He will have multiple gifts to open which is satisfying for him and each gift can be something that relates to him and something he’ll like. In my time of giving the gift of five senses, it’s a humorous way of gifting.
The year I did a 5 senses gift idea for him, I included a lovey-dovey gift, something sentimental, a gift he would laugh at but was necessary, something sexy ( his favorite part) and one gift he didn’t realize he needed. You can go about it any way you choose, already he’ll be stunned you got him five things and there’s no way he’ll know what you got him.
I wish I could say I’m a simple person when it comes to gifting, but I’m really not- especially involving guys. I always wanted to keep it easy because guys are so simple in the first place, but I wanted to know my gift was going to mean something and impress them right? That’s also why I love the five senses gift, it’s one of the best gift ideas to keep it easy and just stick to five little (or big) things that correlate to him. Or you can go pricey, do something more personal and homemade, it’s your choice!
5 Senses Gift Ideas
Regardless of someone’s budget, you can do a 5 senses gift for him on the cheap or you can spend as much as you want.
That’s the nature of the gift, you can do whatever feels right. Below is a selection of touch, taste, sight, smell and sound gifts for him that he will love and gives you an idea of what you can look for!
TOUCH Gifts for Him
One of the easier senses gift ideas to shop and my favorite is “touch” gifts. This can include anything he would wear or have a cool texture to it.
From anything to fit a beer can, a shirt with a funny saying, something cozy, something he can wear, or maybe something that gets him in the kitchen, there are many fun ideas for him this Valentine’s Day!
In years past I’ve been known to buy several shirts or a jacket (meaning for each boyfriend) and it’s something they will get a lot of use out of and constantly be thinking of me! Socks are a great idea as well, he will wear them more than you think. There are so many ideas but here are some of my favorites!
- fun t-shirt
