When a woman turns forty, it is a special birthday for her. She feels fully like a woman and also feels that her life is halfway over. In other words lots of mixed emotions; some very prideful to have made it so far and others fearful with kids leaving the nest and realizing she will never be a girl any more.

Finding gifts for a woman’s fortieth birthday can be a tricky thing. You want to give something that shows you think she is a woman but not something that says you think she is boring or no longer attractive and desirable.

You want to perhaps help her celebrate all of her accomplishments in her life and show her how much your appreciation for her has grown. You also want to support her perhaps not wanting to be reminded of her age.

With all of these aims to fulfill picking a gift for her might seem incredibly difficult. For this reason we have provided a few great ideas for gifts to give the woman turning 40.

Age Defying Skin Care

Forty is that age where the skin is beginning to lose some of its elasticity, particularly if she is fair skinned. These women tend to have skin that ages more quickly. In any case, you can be sure that she is concerned about her skin and wondering how she will keep it looking young.

Throw a Party

Age forty is a great year to throw a memorable party. Depending on your budget you a throw a big swanky affair and invite people from all eras in her life. Look for some elementary school, high school, university, and friends from work to participate and remind her what she has meant to them for such a long period of time. Get a really nice cake and perhaps put together a video presentation that features her through the years.

If you have a small budget do the same thing but on a smaller scale perhaps in your home and with fewer people. The goal is to make her feel special and to let her know how much she is loved. Be sure that there are people who love to have fun and who know how to make a party special. She will never forget this special birthday.
