The 5 senses gift – the perfect gift for your man. A gift that he will actually like. And use. And be genuinely happy to get.
Is it just me, or is buying gifts for men one of the most difficult tasks to complete? I never know what to buy my husband when it comes around to our anniversary, Christmas, his birthday, or other special events. (Oh – and Valentine’s Day.)
I SERIOUSLY DISLIKE GIVING USELESS GIFTS
So, I found the perfect idea for a gift this year and it’s so customizable that two men can be complete opposites and it will still be the perfect gift for each of them!

If you’re looking for a couple quick ideas for your 5 senses gift:
It was in a moment of complete despair when I came across the 5 senses gift for men and gave it a try. I had seen the idea of the 5 senses gift floating around the internet before, but I had never given it any thought.
Then, one year when I was struggling to think of a gift to get my husband that he would actually like and use, not just another gadget to add to a collection of things that collect dust (anyone else?), I came across 5 senses gift ideas for men (again) and decided to give it a try.
It wasn’t the most well put together gift since I was in a pinch for time and didn’t have a chance to do a bunch of running around to different stores to find the perfect items and I didn’t even know what the perfect items for his 5 senses gift were.
So, my first time making this gift wasn’t the best, but since then I have become a lot more prepared and it has become my favorite gift to give. I can give it to my husband every year and he never gets tired of the versatility and endless options of things to put into the five senses gifts for him.
I’ve also learned that buying things online is MUCH less stressful and saves mounds of time.
If you’re like I was and are desperately searching for the perfect gift to give your man, here it is – I have also included a long list of ideas that you can fill each “sense” of the gift up with, in case you’re pinched for time like I was.
THE 5 SENSES GIFT FOR HIM
I created a post back a while called The 5 Senses Gift for the Man in Your Life, and it’s still one of my most popular posts.
This tells me that I am NOT alone in my struggle to find the perfect gift for my man. (And neither are you.)
So, after realizing that many women out there have the same problem as I do, we just don’t know what to get for our man, I realized that it was time to make an updated version of that old post. A version that has far, far more options and ideas for you to choose from.
A new and improved version of the 5 Senses Gift for him.
TOUCH. TASTE. SMELL. SOUND. SIGHT.
We all know that men are hard to shop for. Can I get an amen? This gift will make this year’s gift buying just a little bit easier on all of us women.
If your man is an outdoorsy, hunting and fishing type of guy, I guarantee you can still make this gift the perfect fit for him. If your man is more of an indoor, not so hot with the outdoors type of guy, you can still make this the perfect gift for him.
I’ll include a few suggestions below with things that you can fill your 5 senses gift with, but ultimately, you can change any of these things out for something more personal to your man.
