Have any of you ever struggled with putting together a creative gift basket?! It’s hard to come up with unique gift ideas. For a birthday, an anniversary, a wedding shower, a Valentine’s day gift? Gifts can be hard, especially ones that involve love and romance. That’s why I created this five senses gift basket idea. And today I’m sharing a ton of great ideas you can include in yours.
I originally came up with the idea to make these five sense gift a few years ago when I put a Valentine’s Day gift together for my husband. I had already bought a few little gifts, and I wanted something romantic to tie the items together, so I wrapped them up and labeled them by hand with “For your sense of TASTE” (chocolates), “For my sense of SMELL” (cologne), and “For our sense of adventure” (because it was Valentine’s day).
These baskets can be as fun as you want, or as romantic as you want! If you’re keeping it fun you can use the five senses to label his or her favourite snacks, drinks, t-shirts, books or magazines, and candles.
Or, you can lean to a more romantic gift idea. Really, is there anything more romantic than paying extra attention to our five senses? I love the idea of drawing attention to each one individually. You can fill up your gift baskets with romantic items and aphrodisiacs such as wine, chocolate, roses, perfumes and colognes, etc.
