40th Birthday Gift Ideas - Presents to Consider

Are you looking for 40th birthday gift ideas and inspiration?

Year 40 is a milestone for people. From that year to age 50 are the halfway years people refer to in various ways - over the hill, on the downhill stretch, and so on.

Most people take them in stride, having had a personal epiphany that has brought the revelation of who they are and where they are going into perspective. At the same time, they have ceased to worry about what everyone else thinks, with other struggles with mixed feelings on getting old, image, job security and added aches and pains.

It is a tough period of time for the person approaching 40 and the ones wishing to honor them on this next milestone they are about to embark. For those who have embraced their lives, there is a confidence like none other upon reaching 40. Trivial things cease to matter, and those things that once meant so much - opinions, right, etc, have ceased to play such a big role in attitude toward the day, family, job and fellow man.

For these, the whimsical gift, or one that adds to the definition of their life, or the opportunity to tee off one Saturday morning in the month they were born or a make-over from head to toe may be in order - these are possible 40th birthday gift ideas.

For more 40th birthday gift ideas, check out what is available in the surrounding areas - day spas, country club, or for the wine connoisseur a set of wine glasses from the Tuscany wine region in Italy, or for the woman who has secretly been collecting memorabilia on Elvis all the years her family was growing up, a treasure you found on eBay that will not only add to her collection but to her day, as your gift re-enforces the importance of what she holds dear.

For those whose approach to 40 seems more daunting (life passing them by, what have they accomplished sort of thing), perhaps the gift can center round a dream they have not yet fulfilled. A trip perhaps, or man hours toward a backyard make-over with deck, cook area and fire pit.

For 40th birthday gift ideas for the more down to earth, three months of washing their car (including vacuuming and detailing) or out to dinner with the whole family at her favorite restaurant might go a long way.

How about other 40th birthday gift ideas?

People have given 40 roses (or something less expensive), 40 pieces of an assorted chocolate, 40 items that are symbolic, sentimental, hobby related or a refill cup for 40 cups of your favorite coffee at your favorites stop on the way to work. You could gather information about the person's past and compile a scrapbook, a photo album, or for the man you just don't know what to get for, a theme (40) frame that holds three to five pictures of his family, or the week-end camping trip from last summer.

At 40, people are more worried about being surrounded by family and friends that add depth to their lives. People they can have fun with at the local pool hall or just sit quietly among watching re-runs of season one of a favorite show sipping hot chocolate and eating popcorn with little or no words spoken at all. What pleasure - what a gift!
