The Five Senses Gift

The Five Sense Gift Idea with Printables!

Jamie and I recently celebrated our 3rd Anniversary….I guess you could say we are still in the “honeymoon phase” which I hope we never grow out of!  Seriously, I mean it….and if you don’t believe me…take a stroll down memory lane with me and read THIS!  {WINK}BTW – I LOVE what one of our readers wrote in the comments of that post…she said:

“This life IS the honeymoon!  We’ve got all of eternity to be married!  🙂I totally agree!!Anyway, we are on a student budget now that Jamie is back in school which means I had to be SUPER creative!  I found this cute idea on of our reader’s blogs which worked perfectly into my “try not to go over $10 for a present” strategy!  (Yep…you heard me, a BUDGET, people!)  Anyway,  Linds from That’s So Cuegly was my inspiration!  If you haven’t heard of her…check out her blog!  It’s adorable!

(The “main” tag I put on his present)

I took the FIVE senses….used some digi-scrapbooking paper and put together some tags in Photoshop.  Above each “sense” I wrote a short *cheesy* sentence.  (Seriously, I must’ve been a little loopy….or it was late….’cuz I don’t know WHAT I was thinking when I wrote the “taste” one.  lol)

Next Stop – DOLLAR STORE!

I found this nifty little neon green shovel that matched my cards perfectly!
How much, you ask!?!  Oh, ya know, just a dollar!  🙂

I found FIVE things that related to the FIVE senses that I could attach my cards to.  I also wanted to make sure that they contributed to “setting the mood” for our romantic night!

SMELL: a yummy smelling candle
SOUND: a “love mix” CD of songs that are SUPER romantic AND meaningful to both of us
TOUCH: cocoa lotion and a coupon for a back massage
SIGHT: some sexy lingerie
TASTE: a coupon for a dessert of his choice  (I wanted to get some Sparkling Cider to attach the card to – BUT – I ran outta time.  YOU should do that, though!)
My dollar store gifts (in all their glory) with the tags attached.

K….I was JUST as shocked as you are that I found adorable lingerie at the DOLLAR store! Get outta town!  Lookin’ good has never been so cheap!  Victoria Secret’s got NOTHIN’ on Dollar Stores!  {WINK}

Wa-lah!  Here is the final gift!  I placed all of the stuff on the cute shovel, used clear cellophane to wrap it in, tied a black satin ribbon around it, and attached the “Senses” card to the front.

Cost?!?  $4+tax
I am your new BFF, huh!!  🙂
A FUN little gift that was easy to “whip” up and can be used for any occasion.

  1. Hi Tara..must say .lovely ideas.
    Can u give me an idea. Like im planning to give five senses plus one gift like sixth sense..as my hus always use
    to make fun of me saying ive got a sixth sense…can u suggest what can i do as sixth gift
    Kindly reply

    1. Haha – that would be AWESOME! Let’s see… gosh, I’m drawing a blank on this one? In order for him to get that it’s representing your “sixth sense” you would probably have to make it pretty personal. A gift relating to some incident where he exclaimed that’s the sense you were using… Does that help? XO

      1. Thank u dear for the quick revert ! I really need to think hard on that..thanks dear..your blog is really awesome..
        All the best for your future endeavours..

  2. This is so adorable, I am definitely going to use this, only problem I have is with the “taste” card. I will be doing this for my boyfriend. Thanks for sharing!!

    1. Hi Kim! Unfortunately, we don’t have anything that would say “boyfriend” specifically since we are geared primarily toward married couples, BUT we do have a 5 senses printable in our store that has MANY more options and it’s only $5! You can check in the pictures if the gift tags will work for what you need. Just search for “The Five Senses Gift” on our site and it will come right up! Good luck!

    1. Hi Jeremy! It is actually a digital download so it you will receive it within an hour of purchase, if not sooner. You can then print it at your home (depending on your printer) or I recommend printing it from a print center, Staples, FedEx, etc. You can order easily online, pick up the next day (or have them mail it) and it’s only a few dollars. For this gift I recommend printing on a heavier weight or cardstock paper although any paper would work. I hope that helps!
