He begins to change his views on life, to be interested in new areas of the world around him, and almost any new thing delights him. But if it is not difficult for guests to choose a suitable gift, then for the wife of the birthday man it is a real problem. Therefore, offer the wives of 40-year-old men to use the following options.
Who, if not a wife, knows best about her husband’s hobbies! If he is a collector, he will be happy to receive a new copy for his collection, if he is a bath lover, then bath accessories will come in handy.

The following items can also be used as gifts.
- Subscription to the gym. It’s no secret that by the age of 40, many men are worried about changes in their figure, so the hero of the day will be glad to visit the gym. Even if the spouse is in great shape, he will not be offended by the opportunity to visit the instructor and once again support his body.
- Sport equipment. This option is suitable for those who prefer to train at home. You can buy, for example, new dumbbells, ights, equipment, home exercise equipment.
- Car accessories. By this age, usually all men have cars, and the wife always knows what exactly her husband lacks for a car dealership. If the wife is not particularly versed in cars, then you can limit yourself to a certificate to an auto accessories store.
- Barbecue or barbecue. At 40, a favorite vacation for most men is a trip to nature. Many of them are engaged in the construction of their own house, and someone becomes the owner of a dacha, and new equipment for organizing a picnic is a very practical and pleasant gift.
