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.
Nothing creates a sense of urgency like counting the seconds until the time when you can’t count the seconds anymore. The surest way to beat procrastination, this watch doesn’t let you off the hook. Strap it on someone’s wrist, give them a hearty slap on the rear, and tell them to get to work.
Trying to get your favorite 40 year old to do some exercise once in awhile? Get them off the couch playing video games and onto this stationary bike- also playing video games - where the more exercise they get, the better they do in the game. Talk about win-win, right?
This is a 40th birthday gift that can backfire, be warned. You may turn an otherwise normal, mild mannered person into a raving hypochondriac worried that every cough is tuberculosis, every headache a tumor, and diarrhea radiation sickness. It could happen.
When traveling, some people really like an element of predictability to anchor their experience in an unfamiliar place. With a recognizable name like Hilton, you know exactly what to expect.

By their 40th birthday, a person has probably had the chance to go a few places, and has definitely had the chance to think of a few places they’d like to go. This personalized travel map comes with colored pins to mark those them all on an attractive US or world map.
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.
It’s a harsh reality, turning 40, so let them escape into a different world where their troubles will virtually disappear, temporarily at least. This is as much fun for the people watching the lucky recipient use it, as it is for the person themselves, so sit back, relax and enjoy the gift that’s almost better for you than it is for them.
The subtle appeal of the universal wish to reverse the relentless march of time comes in the form of a regular round kitchen clock. But instead of ticking away the seconds in the standard clockwise direction, this clock goes backwards, seeming for a moment to be leading to the idyllic past rather than uncertain future.
