The Five Senses Gift Concept


>> Unique Unusual Gifts >> Five Senses Gift Concept

The five senses gift is one of the most charming gift concepts I know.

The idea is simple – For each sense you choose a gift that symbolizes it.

  • It is fun and easy to implement.
  • It can be personalized easily.
  • You can use it for every occasion.
  • It can be done on almost any budget.

You can also play with the presentation:

  • You can give the 5 senses gifts as one gift package at the party.
  • Build an unforgettable night (or a whole day) around it.
  • Or make the whole week about your loved one and devote a day for each sense/gift.

No matter what you choose, I'm sure that your recipient will never forget your five senses gift.

Here are some gift ideas for each sense:


  • A meal – it can be a meal out in a restaurant, one that you and/or your kids cook at home, or you can invite a chef to cook a meal at your kitchen
  • Chocolate gift basket, Chocolate truffles or any other form of chocolate
  • Chocolate making workshop or a cookery course
  • Wine tasting experience day
  • A bottle of wine or champagne and 2 flutes
  • Go on a romantic picnic or a family picnic
  • Play a game – cover the recipient's eyes, let him taste different kinds of food and guess what he ate
  • Make or buy herbs and spices gift basket
