What to know when buying ?
Women’s Gift Ideas:
Jewellery is always a great option for women. One option for a 40th birthday gift is to get a charm bracelet-there are many bracelets targeted at 40 year olds. Or, if the birthday girl already has a charm bracelet, you could buy her a “forty” charm to add to the bracelet.
For the 40th birthday girl holding a large party, consider purchasing a birthday memories photo album or scrapbook. There are several birthday albums available that are meant exclusively for 40th birthdays.
An interesting birthday gift would be a “When You Were Born” book that tells interesting facts about the year, month and even the day the person was born. Many of these books can be personalized with different colours, names, dedications and poems.
Men’s Gift Ideas:
A good gift for the 40 year old male is a set of wine glasses with a funny saying such as “40 and Toasted,” or “29 and 132 months.” Better yet, give the birthday boy an aged bottle of wine from the year he was born along with the wine glasses.
A lot of 40th birthday books are really corny, but the book “40 things to do When You Turn Forty” is actually really insightful, featuring several well-written essays by bestselling authors.
A lot of gift stores and websites sell “Time Capsule” basket gifts, which are great for 40th birthdays. Choose a “time capsule” from the year the birthday guy was born. It usually will contain nostalgic candy such as “Red Hots” and “Bottle Caps,” as well as trivia playing cards, music albums released 40 years ago, a 40th birthday t-shirt or even a newspaper from the day you were born.
This year, get your 40 year old friend a gift he or she will remember and cherish!
