They say 40 is the time in your life that you really hit your sweet spot. You’ve gained the wisdom you need to really figure this stuff out. If you have a friend or loved one turning 40, it’s a time for a birthday celebration.

Consider a box of delectable chocolate covered strawberries topped with white chocolate Happy Birthday sentiments, along with cake batter-flavored white chocolate dipped strawberries and cake-shaped pineapples rolled in colorful sprinkles. Paired with a gorgeous bouquet of fresh-cut flowers, it’s a complete gift perfect for celebrating a 40th birthday. It even comes with real birthday candles you can light! If flowers aren’t their thing, pair it with a delightful arrangement of fresh fruit and chocolate dipped fruits in a fun martini glass-shaped container they can use again and again, plus a festive Happy Birthday balloon to top it all off.

Consider a box of scrumptious mini cheesecakes and gourmet chocolate brownies paired with a bundle of Happy Birthday balloons to celebrate their big 4-0. Planning a night in to celebrate? A curated box packed with mouth-watering movie night snacks is sure to be a hit. With gourmet popcorn, an assortment of chocolate dipped fruits, a dozen fresh-baked cookies, and a FandangoNOW promotional code to rent the movie of the birthday guy’s or gal’s choice, it’s the perfect way to set the stage for a cozy, intimate 40th birthday celebration with their closest friends and loved ones.

“While he looks like he’s in his twenties, my partner is turning 40 this year. I am gifting him a staycation at a luxury resort in Southern California. A staycation is a great gift for someone turning 40 because it allows them to celebrate the big milestone while also allowing ample time to reflect on their life and achievements.”

“The best 40th birthday gift that I got was a personalized watch. I still have it and use it every day, and it is more than a gift. It is a keepsake that I can see every day while I work. It has my initials on the face of the watch, and I always get compliments on it. If you are looking for a birthday present for someone turning 40, I would go for something sentimental like this. A keepsake watch or bracelet can mean a lot to people and is just something that they will never forget.”

“You should check out these Wine Soap Bars from Uncommon Goods. They’re all-natural, vegan, and give off the distinctive shades and notes of popular red and white wine varieties. What better way to tell the special 40-year-old in your life that they’re aging like fine wine as they enjoy the sublime scents and skin-soothing benefits of these soaps?”

“A great birthday gift for someone in their 40s is a new phone. Some people like to stick to what they know, but if it is a present they will have to be willing to learn it. Being able to communicate with your family using a phone with video capabilities is something that you cannot forget and will be so useful to them, especially in the times we are living in. I would recommend an iPhone as they are easy to use and have Facetime, which is very easy to use.”

“An ideal 40th birthday idea is something that will take them back to being a teenager and will bring back good memories for them.

This could be a collection of their favorite teen music or maybe a boxset of their favorite movies. There are some fantastic gifts out there, but most 40 year-olds want to go back in time for a short while when they had fewer responsibilities and more free time. A friend of mine received a Scalextric for his 40 and he couldn’t have been happier. It was a replica of the one he had as a boy, which brought back fond memories as well as being something he could enjoy with his young children, too.”

Ethan founded Goalry, Inc with the mission to create one place to reach financial goals and comparison shop for any money matter.

“40th birthdays are really special in my opinion, but turning 40 can be really upsetting for some as they feel they are leaving their youth behind. So why not show them how young they really are by giving them an experience rather than a physical item?

These gifts can vary in price, but you will be allowing them to make a memory as well as enjoying themselves. They don’t have to be expensive, either. I hired a small boat for my friend’s birthday last year and he still talks about it today. Sometimes taking a short break from the daily routine can be the best gift. Life gets real in your forties, so why not take a break from responsibilities and enjoy yourself? Other options are driving a race car, bungee jumping, or even becoming a co-pilot for a day.”

“A creative and meaningful gift for someone celebrating their 40th birthday would be a self-portrait. 40 is a big year and in that way, it’s sure to be a celebration about commemorating and reflecting on one’s life as they begin the latter half of their years. Hand-painted portraits, as rare as they may be, are classic, sentimental, and will make this celebration timeless.”


Trond NylandTrond Nyland

Trond Nyland is the Founder and CEO at Cordless Drill Guide.

“I find cordless drills very symbolic as a 40th birthday gift. Those who are just leaving their 30s often own their own homes, may have kids, or may even have just divorced. Man or woman, by offering a cordless drill you are empowering them to take control of their own home. It allows them to be independent in matters of loose door handles and much-needed shelving.”

“Here’s a pretty unusual gift idea for an outdoorsy 40-year-old who enjoys a taste of luxury when he’s on the move: a gourmet coffee maker by NANOPRESSO. You can fit it in your backpack, and it weighs less than one pound.”

“The ‘middle-aged’ mark usually lands around the 40th birthday, so a great encouraging gift could be sleek and fresh workout gear. Many of us know keeping up with fitness partially comes down to what you wear. Not only does appropriate fitness clothing help you perform better, but also, when you look good, you feel good.”

“Everyone can use a little pampering, especially those entering the latter half of their years. The five-step self-care system, the ‘Regimen’ set, features a cleanser stick, face scrub, face mask, eye stick, and face moisturizer. This set is sure to be a refreshing gift for the newly 40.”

“Definitely, the best 40th birthday gift is a book. One of the best books I can recommend is The Great Gatsby. It’s a great novel that can give a 40-year old enjoyment and that they will likely cherish forever. You can personalize the book with the name or photo of the person or create a beautifully designed book about any 40-year-old.”

“My best suggestion is a custom portrait (oil painting, photography, or digital print) that you’ve had framed. It is a kind of gift that’s priceless and will last forever. Not only are you giving a gift but also creating a memory with the birthday celebrant.”

“I turned the BIG 40 last year and got the best present ever! I went on my first cruise alone. Alone meaning no kids or anyone I had to look after. It was also my first time leaving the country, which was a beautiful experience. A trip is a great idea for a 40th birthday!”

“At the age of 40, people know themselves a lot better and have accepted themselves for what they are. Materialistic gifts don’t fancy them anymore until it is something they really wanted. So here are two of my favorite picks for people entering the golden age!

1. 40 reasons why we love you printable poster

People at this age are looking for love, and this gift will let you shower them with just that. You can write all the reasons you love them on this poster and every time they see it, it will be a confidence boost for them. And not to forget, it will bring a smile to their face, which will be priceless!

2. Handmade card

There’s nothing more exciting than effort, especially when the recipient has reached the age of 40. So, scroll through some DIY YouTube videos, get some paper and pens, and make a handmade card for the person turning 40. Don’t forget to add a personalized note to it. Something like, ‘Aging like wine!’ is sure to make the recipient smile!”

“Your 40th birthday is a time when you really start to realize you are not a kid anymore. A great way to remind a loved one that no matter their age, life still holds adventures they have not yet enjoyed is with an action gift. There are many different adventure gifts to choose from whether a helicopter ride, skydiving experience – indoor or from a plane, and even underwater adventures like scuba diving.”


John PetersonJohn Peterson

John Peterson is the editor of Safe Drive Gear.

“A gift is an expression of love, and it’s a way to make someone feel special. I would give the birthday celebrant a necklace or ring as a gift – engraved with his/her name or the number 40. Who would not love such a personalized present?”

“Here are some awesome 40th birthday gifts that you might want to consider:

  • Massage cushions – for physical stress relief
  • Smartphone projector – for fun and other cool stuff
  • Classy wine racks – to have a place for some good quality drinks

Happy birthday, indeed.”

“The 40 Reasons Why We Love You Printable Poster is the perfect 40th birthday gift for men and women who are difficult to buy for. It makes a lovely keepsake for someone you love.

The printable contains a high-quality image that looks amazing printed and framed. There are hearts printed on the poster where you can fill out each heart with reasons you love them. It works as a great party guest book alternative where everyone writes a comment in these hearts or fills each heart with memory.”


Andrea-Sara LimAndrea-Sara Lim

Andrea-Sara Lim works with Progress ABMS.

“For someone in their 40s who loves adventure and traveling, the Scratch The World Travel Map is the perfect gift! Scratching off destinations that have been visited will reveal beautiful colors underneath. The map is also extra large for ease of scratching. With its gold coating, it can serve as an aesthetic decoration to be hung on the wall. Apart from countries, the map also features boundaries, hill shadings, mountains, rivers, and state outlines. This is a great gift for someone who wishes to track their travel progress and plan for future trips (post-COVID, of course).”


Mika KujapeltoMika Kujapelto

Mika Kujapelto is the CEO and Founder of LaptopUnboxed.

“A Fitbit fitness smartwatch can be a great birthday gift for men or women because it motivates you to be healthier and helps monitor your health.

It also has additional benefits, such as tracking your sleeping patterns and heart rate features. A device like this can be suitable for any female or male family members or friends you might have on your gift list.

A big-screen TV might be another gift a forty-year-old man or woman would love for their birthday. It can entertain them with their favorite movies or TV shows, especially if they have a sound system to mimic a theater experience during the pandemic. Or it can help them entertain their families during the pandemic.

Another forty-year-old might enjoy a professional massage. You can research local businesses that provide massages and figure out which ones are right for them. A couple’s massage or a simple one can offer an excellent experience for someone you care about.

A virtual wine tasting on a laptop or other device might be another great birthday gift. You can give someone special a virtual wine tasting experience they’ve never had and can create a socializing experience for them when the pandemic has decreased in-person celebrations.”
