The five senses gift concept revolves around titillating the five basic senses (sight, touch, hearing, taste and smell) of the recipient with different gifts. These gift ideas can be trinkets or keepsakes or experience gifts, and satisfying a gift for each makes for an extremely memorable event.
Five senses gift ideas are originally crafted by lovers for lovers, so today we are going to discuss ideas on five senses gifts for him, your lover, either a boyfriend, fiancé or husband. If you are looking for five senses gift for her, check this article.
I will give you a few gift ideas for each of the five senses and you choose whether to give the gifts one by one for a nice whole day event (perfect for dating and wedding anniversaries and Valentines day) or as a gift basket (which would be appropriate for the man’s birthday or Christmas, even Father’s day.)
