cool 40th birthday gifts for him

Just because there’s a few more greys showing than might have been in recent years, doesn’t mean they want a pipe and slippers. We’ve put together a list of our best picks for a 40th birthday present, that will hopefully stop you getting yourself into trouble.

Unique and unusual gifts for 40 year olds

It can be very difficult to get a 40th birthday gift right. Not mature enough, and they’ll think that you think that they’re sensitive about their age. Too old, and they’re just going to be straight up offended. In the hi-tech, futuristic, space age in which we’re living, 40 isn’t even that old.

In Victorian times, being 40 meant you had no teeth left and 17 grandchildren. In our time, you might not even be middle aged. The thing is, your birthday boy isn’t likely to see it that way, so you need to buy him a cool gift that allows him to forget the onset of age and the forthcoming dentures.
