Last updated on January 23rd, 2019

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.)

    Love the gift ideas. For me personally, the fragrance and something experience-based would be perfect. Like Hot Air Baloon trip or scuba diving. Something I’m willing to explore is the sensual based gifts. Anyways, great work!

    This is a great idea! Although my husband and I are fixing to leave for a vacation for our anniversary right after Valentine’s Day I decided to get him a small gift that maybe he can take for our trip.
    Smell: One of his favorite colognes that I love as well
    Taste: His favorite candy (sour patch kids)
    Sight: a picture of us when we did our engagement photos 3 years ago
    Sound: a couple of songs that I put on a USB that reminds me of our love: of course I included our wedding song since we are leaving for our anniversary
    Touch: some lingerie that he will enjoy

    I done this for my fiancé for Valentine’s Day this year and he loved it.. we went to he’s home country England for it and it’s where he proposed that night.
    I got him:
    Sight. Tickets to he’s fave English soccer team
    Taste: Beer
    Sound: air pods ( for when he does his jogs he can listen to music)
    Touch: lingerie in he’s fave colour green
    Smell: Oils ( to help him relax, sleep and breathing) it’s like an orange scent

    This is a really cool idea…I plan to do this for Christmas for my boyfriend. I’m doing the following:
    Smell: YSL Cologne
    Taste: Honey Buns and a Moe’s SW Grill gift card( He LOVES honey buns and Moe’s)
    Touch: Clothes( few sweaters and a pair of nice jeans all from FASHION NOVA MEN)
    sight: concert tickets
    sound: 3 vinyl records ( He’s a music head)

    It’s important to listen to your man throughout the year and pay attention to the things he likes and the things he say he wants. I wrote out all the things he said he likes or wanted throughout the year from ours casual conversations.
    I’m also a smart penny pinching shopper so I didn’t spend a whole lot on his gifts. I shopped 40% off sales and used friend’s employee discounts! haha

    This really helped I’m making his this for Christmas. I hope he likes it!!!
