If the usual gifts have been losing their appeal of late and you want to take your gifting up a notch, the 5 senses gift can make it fun again.
Rather than spending hours trying to find the perfect gift for that someone special in your life, try choosing multiple gifts that show your love in a unique way.
The concept of a “five senses gift” is to buy or create gifts that appeal to the basic senses of the human body: sound, touch, taste, smell, and sight.
Your significant other will appreciate the extra effort you make to pamper him.
What is a 5 Senses Gift?
This is a collection of several gifts that flatter the entire spectrum of sensations. It targets each of their 5 senses – sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste.
Targeting each of your partner’s senses in a special way is one of the most romantic things you can do.
This gifting trend has quickly become one of the most popular DIY gifts made for boyfriends, girlfriends, and long distance relationships.
The beauty of this gift is how easily you can tailor it to the recipient, creating a truly thoughtful gift that they’ll remember for years to come.
What Do You Put in the 5 Senses Gift?
The first thing to remember is to pick out things that he will actually like and use. The second thing is to be creative!
The gifts can include experiences, useful gadgets, items made by you, or just some of the recipients’ favorite things.
The idea behind the five senses gift is to give 5 gifts to one person – each gift represents one of the following senses:
- Touch – For the “touch” sense, you’ll want to include a gift that involves touch, whether that’s something soft and comfy like a new blanket and clothes, or perhaps a massage or pampering experience.
- Taste – Taste gift ideas are definitely the easiest of the 5 sense categories because they involve everyone’s favorite gift – food! But you can also think beyond that and get things that are used in creating taste (i.e., cooking and kitchen tools).
- Sight – To please the eyes, you want something beautiful, meaningful, and something they can see! It can include just about anything that can be seen, so there aren’t too many limits to this one. You can choose from things they can look at or watch to things that will help with their sight (e.g., new sunglasses).
- Smell – The smell gift ideas can be tough, especially if you’re shopping for a man, but there are still a lot of fun options and certainly one of them will work. You can include a gift that involves smelling, usually something that has a nice smell (e.g., candles and perfume), or will help them smell nice (e.g., self-care products).
- Sound – The “sound” gift is a little more limited, but there are still plenty of good options. You can include a gift that involves hearing, like things they can listen to or items that will help them with hearing and listening (e.g., headphones or speakers).
For sure, the five senses gift ideas for him are perfect for those times when you just want to spoil him.
