Today we’re looking into the very best 5 senses gift ideas for her. Five senses gifts provide you with a creative way to indulge all of her senses with a gift that is thoughtful, meaningful, creative, and memorable.
She’s a unique, multi-faceted individual with lots of loves and interests, so why not give a gift that appeals to as much of what makes her her as possible?
Sounds like the way to go, if you ask us, so let’s get rolling! Touch? We’ve got those. Taste? Check. Sight and sound? Double check. Smell? Yup, we’ve got those, too!
We have plenty of five senses gifts on the list of ideas below, but first, let’s ask (and answer) the most important question:
What Is a 5 Senses Gift?
This may be a whole new arena for you, so we’re here to help you get your bearings.
A “5 senses gift” is one or more items that highlight the five senses: sight, smell, touch, taste, and sound. You can think of it as an immersive experience gift of sorts, if that helps.
These gifts are meant to appeal to the individual as a whole, capturing and delighting as many of their senses as possible at one time. Finding a singular gift that speaks to all five senses at once can be a difficult task, though, so five senses gifts often involve a combination of two or more presents, specifically chosen for their multi-sense properties.
You can arrange them artfully in a gift basket or box, or individually wrap them for her. You can even involve her senses in your presentation! Think textured or scented paper, silky fabric gift bags, or colorful cellophane and bows.
Putting these types of gifts together can be so much fun, and she’ll really appreciate all of your clever gift ideas that were carefully planned out just for her.
