40th Birthday Ideas
If the person you are trying to find a gift for has a sense of humour about their impending 40th birthday (and not everyone does so you need to be careful!) you might wish to surprise them at their workplace with a singing telegram. Imagine their delight when a singing bunny shows up at their office door to give their best rendition of the Happy Birthday song, complete with cupcake with burning birthday candle.
Many people like to combine the gift with the number 40. A gift like this has some staying power especially if you give the person a photograph album with 40 photos from his or her childhood in it. Or you might put together a small booklet in which you write 40 short vignettes about the person’s past. Or give them 40 different quotes about aging and what it means to grow older.
Other people like to chose gifts that pamper the birthday girl or boy. A day at the spa is always a welcome gift for either a man or a woman. Having a nice massage is a wonderful way to relax and unwind. This is a gift that most people will very rarely give themselves but it is, nevertheless, something they enjoy immensely. Women will enjoy a gift certificate to a local spa where they can have a manicure and a pedicure or sit in a steam bath for a little while.
Another unique 40th birthday ideas is a photo shoot experience. If you combine it with a makeover prior to the photo shoot, all the better. They will look their absolute best when their images are taken for posterity.
If the person you are choosing a gift for enjoys cooking, you might wish to consider giving them some cooking classes. Or, if you know that they have always loved Indian food, consider hiring an Indian chef to come to their home for an evening and make them a delicious Indian dinner.
Personalized gifts of any kind are always very much appreciated and enjoyed by the recipient. Nearly anything can be personalized from golf putters to beer mugs. The choice is nearly endless.
Another gift that often makes a big hit is a trip out of town. If you know this person loves the seashore but has not been in many years, consider booking a weekend retreat for them at a beachside cottage. Choose a location where there are a lot of things to do and send them off for a nice holiday.
