As you come into your 40s, gift giving becomes an art—a quick gift certificate or a duty-free purchase from your trip abroad won't cut it. You need shrewdness, quirkiness, and great taste to pick out the perfect present for your peers. Whether you're shopping for the practical pal or the hard-to-please diva, we've compiled everything, from grown-up games and grown-up drinks to wearable offerings (not just clothing!) and intelligent, unforgettable experiences. Brush up on these gift ideas for people over 40 and you'll be a present-presenting maestro in no time.
1. A Samurai-Grade Kitchen Knife
Every home cook should be equipped with at least one knife that can through raw meat like it's butter. The DM0706 from Shun is exactly that, and is a rare Japanese blade that's dishwasher-friendly.
2. A Surfing Lesson
Your 40s are when you really establish yourself and your hobbies. But some of those hobbies you just haven't found yet. Here's a chance to open your friend up to a new hobby—like, say, a surfing lesson. The activity is hard to pick up, but, once you get the skills down pat, it's an incredibly exhilarating and therapeutic workout.
3. Spirits with Spirit
No one will complain about a bottle of nice whiskey, of course. But if you really want to go above and beyond, sui generis spirits, like those produced by Ventura Spirits Company (they're the only manufacturer in the world to make vodka out of, as opposed to flavored by, strawberries, for example) will really leave an impression—so long as the recipient doesn't drink the whole bottle in one go, Bestlifeonline noted.
We also learned about another means of escape, accessible even within the four walls of your recipient’s home: HigherDOSE’s Sauna Blanket, which allows the wearer to replicate the experience of a sauna while lying in bed. Chernow told us it was his 40th-birthday gift to himself. “I love it — you’ll never need to leave your house or apartment anymore to get your sauna in, and the blanket is small enough to keep in your closet.”
5. A Barista-Worthy Espresso Machine

For the coffee fanatic—the pal who can smell the difference between Nicaraguan and Jamaican beans—nothing beats a barista-grade espresso machine. The Breville BES870XL is exactly that. This beast comes with a grinder, countless customization settings, and a built-in frothing wand.
6. Mixbook Milestone Photo Album
It may be more grounded in enjoying the past than predicting the future, but McGrory tells us she’s currently enjoying putting together a custom photo album from Mixbook for her husband’s upcoming 40th. “We’ve been together for over 15 years, so new gift ideas and milestone birthdays are a challenge,” she says, explaining that she rose to it by “pulling together photos from our archives, friends, and family to make him a photo book. We take too many digital photos and do nothing with them, so a bound, printed book is a novelty.”, Nymag reported.
7. Sterling Silver Four Circle Necklace
What better way to celebrate the big 40 than with this beautifully crafted sterling silver four-ring necklace. With each ring representing a decade, this piece of jewelry is both meaningful and fashionable. With an 18-inch long sterling silver necklace, this handcrafted jewelry comes with a five-year warranty and is perfect for any mom, sister, daughter, or bestie.
8. Indoor Herb Garden Starter Kit
Turning 40 is all about relaxing and enjoying the finer things in life… such as growing your own herbal tea! Perfect for any tea lover, this herbal tea starter kit comes with everything they need to grow organic tea conveniently at home. Including lavender, chamomile, mint and lemon seeds, the kit also comes with plant pots, soil discs, pruning shears and all the instructions they’ll need.
9. Retro Candy Gift Box
They might be turning 40, but they still have a sweet tooth! Surprise them with all their favorite childhood candy with this awesome retro candy gift box. Including all the classic American sweets they grew up with, this gift box includes over 55 pieces of candy sold in the ’80s. With classics like nerds, sour patch, and dubble bubbe, they’ll remember what it was like to be young!
10. Fitness Smartwatch
Help them stay active at their “old” age, with this trendy Fitbit Versa 2. Including features such as heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, calorie-burning and a built-in Alexa, this smartwatch will help keep them fit and healthy. Easy to sync with any smartphone, the watch can also display messages, calls, and other notifications straight from their phone, according to Giftobserver.
