This is less DUI, more DOI – Driving On the Influence. This nifty little speed demon is perfect for when they really want to make an entrance to a party. And did you say they have a birthday coming up? Not only is it a great gift for them, it’s a great gift for you too – you’re officially off designated driver duties. A gift that keeps on giving.
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?
They can’t quite put their finger on what they want for their birthday and you really don’t want to get it wrong because, let’s be honest, it’s not every day they turn 40. Solve the problem with a 3D Printer. That thing they forgot to mention? There in a flash and quicker than Amazon Prime.
Back in the old days you were really rolling the dice when you chose a hotel. Either you called blindly after skimming the phone book or simply drove all night and hoped you saw a vacancy sign before you ran out of gas and got murdered by a vagrant. A hotels.com gift card is not just a way of picking up the tab for a night’s stay; it’s also the priceless gift of peace of mind.
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.
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.
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.
If you know a 40-year-old who often finds themselves in a culinary conundrum, this makes a perfect gift for them to find some foodie inspiration. If you live with the person you’re giving these to, it also means you’re more likely to get your dinner a little quicker in the evenings. Can you think of a better reason to buy them? No, we couldn’t either.
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.
