try setting cookies of selected tags before submitting a form. then you can access cookies in php

NOTE: dont forget to remove cookie after form submition.

JS: using jQuery Cookie For further understating about JQuery cookie read here

$.cookie("test", 1, {
   expires : 10,           //expires in 10 days

   path    : '/',          //The value of the path attribute of the cookie 
                           //(default: path of page that created the cookie).

   domain  : 'yourdomain.com',  //The value of the domain attribute of the cookie
                           //(default: domain of page that created the cookie).

   secure  : true          //If set to true the secure attribute of the cookie
                           //will be set and the cookie transmission will
                           //require a secure protocol (defaults to false).

PHP Read cookie on server-side.

echo $_COOKIE('test');
