Here Are the Best 40th Birthday Gifts

1. The 40th Birthday Game

The 40th Birthday Game Buy or Read More on Amazon Here ($7.99 at the time of publication)

It’s like a Jeopardy! category where either the question or the answer has the number 40 in it. For instance, do you know who the 40th U.S. president was? What is 40 squared? What movie role did Arnold Schwarzenegger have when he was 40? There are 70 printed cards, each with two questions for a total of 140. The answers are multiple choice, which gives you at least a chance of getting it right by accident, but at the same time it negates the possibilities of hilarious off the cuff answers. Shipping isn’t exactly speedy (about two weeks) so allow plenty of time for delivery.

2. Air Fryer Oilless Cooker

Choose from four bold colors and get ready to cook!

37. Birthday Key Chain

Birthday Key Chain Buy or Read More on Amazon Here ($10.99 at the time of publication)

The inscription on this pretty chrome keychain reads, “Life is a book, and your forties are the chapters when it all starts making sense.” If it’s written on a keychain, then it has to be true, right? The inscription is on a shiny medallion about the size of a silver dollar, and the product literature is quick to point out that there are no sharp edges to hurt you. We’re not sure that was ever an issue, but this is good to know. In addition to the medallion, there is a charm in the shape of a 40. Truthfully, this is one of those gifts where it’s hard to go wrong.

The whole wallet isn’t RFID protected, just a pocket you can keep credit cards in. There is a notch you can insert your thumbnail to push the credit card out.

If you asked 100 men if they liked pampering themselves, 100 of them would say, “What kind of question is that?” But maybe, just maybe they do like pampering themselves. Well, with this gift box, it’s perfectly OK to indulge, and no one has to know that you like it. It includes gum & lime soap, soap dish, face towel, beard balm, beard brush and beard comb. It’s all packed in a rustic looking box along with a gift card that has been made from recycled material. It ships from Australia, mate, so you’ll have to show a little patience on delivery.

It’s pretty, It’s thoughtful. It’s green. It includes a live succulent plant, an all-natural soy candle with a wonderfully fresh aroma and even matches to light the candle with. The glass jar that the candle rests in can be personalized with a message of 100 characters or fewer. This is a great gift for any occasion, not just a birthday.
