What is a good gift for a colleague turning 40?

We don't always know our colleagues privately, but we still want to celebrate with them. Especially when their birthdays are even like the 40th milestone. If it is difficult to come up with something unique, go for something related to work, perhaps with a fun twist. Some ideas for a 40th gift for a colleague from our range include a personalised notebook, a handy computer bag and pens for work.

What is the perfect 40th birthday gift for your best friend?

A perfect 40th birthday gift for your best friend should be both personalised and say something about your friendship. It can be a gift that reminds you of something you did together or that characterises your friendship. If you are planning a trip, a cabin bag with a photo is a perfect gift. Or maybe a leather suitcase for the fancy friend. This is great also for the gym!

Best friends also love to make fun with each other. A funny 40th birthday gift for a woman could be a gift with a funny selfie of the two of you. You can print the photo on a shirt or coffee mug. Of course, the same goes for men too. If you can't see your friend as often as you'd like, a stuffed animal with your photo is a great personalised gift that will make him laugh.

How much to spend on 40th birthday gift?

Determining how much to spend on a 40th birthday gift is a mainly personal decision. However, most people often wonder what's the appropriate amount to spend. Well, it generally depends on your relationship with the birthday person and your personal budget. Usually people tend to spend slightly more for a "decade", after all you don't turn 40 every day!

From bigger investments to small keepsakes, YourSurprise has 40th gifts for every budget. Bigger budgets can include gifts such as a piece of engraved jewellery, a bottle of fancy champagne or a leather item. Smaller budgets can include fun socks with a photo, a personalised snow globe, a Toblerone with name or heart shaped chocolates.
