Bathtub Wine Glass Holder
If someone has reached the age of forty without realizing the joy of luxuriating in a hot bath while drinking a glass of cold white wine, buy this gift for them. If they have reached that age and know exactly how nice it is to do that, then, again, buy this gift for them! It works either way.
Turning 40 years old is a time when a person starts thinking about taking better care of their body by doing certain things in a more natural way. It is also a time when a person still retains some of that youthful flexibility. Combined, these two facts make the Squatty Potty an excellent gift. Yes, it is what you think it is.
If you have never had kids, it might be hard to understand how nice of a gift this is. But consider - if a babysitter makes just $12.50 an hour (which is conservative), 4 hours of babysitting is worth $50 before you even get into tipping. It’s a great gift! And you get to have fun with some kids as a bonus.
They might be getting older and waving goodbye to their youth but everyone is still a big kid at heart, at least to some extent. Satisfy their inner child by gifting them some giant candy. It’s quite hard to sugarcoat waving goodbye to their younger years but this still makes a sweet gift for your favorite 40-year-old.
If they’re turning 40, they’ll have spent enough time in supermarkets to last a lifetime. Buy them a Costco membership and not only will you save them money, you’ll also be saving them time so they can start doing other exciting old people things instead, like gardening and bridge club. In fact, you might get really lucky with a jumbo pack of toilet roll as a thank you.
Get them thinking about where they are stashing their fortune with the gift of a gold or silver coin. Perhaps a coin that was minted in the year they were born would be a fun 40th birthday gift, or for an amount equal to their age. However you go, this is a gift that will literally be treasured.
They might not be feeling particularly lucky to be waving their thirties goodbye but they will have hit the jackpot with a hand-crafted bouquet of lottery tickets. Money doesn’t grow on trees, but they could prove the old adage wrong. Just make sure they don’t forget who bought them the golden ticket when they become a multimillionaire.
Just give it to them. Don’t make a big deal about it, or give them diet books or a lecture or anything like that. They know. They have figured out for themselves that their body is not quite the well-tuned machine that it once was. Just give the Fitbit, and leave the rest to them.
Prepare them for the coldness of the tomb while soothing their aches and pains with a cryotherapy session. In socks and underwear, they will enter a chamber where their whole body (head not included) is bathed in frigid nitrogen vapor for up the three minutes or so. The quick chill is meant to promote natural healing throughout the body.
