Not sure what to buy for a 40th birthday? If you need some additional innovative birthday ideas, consider using some of these tips to help you:
Go with a more over the hill theme- get forty suckers and put them into a large pail and put a sign on the front that says "40 Sucks". You can use that as funny party favors. If you want other over the hill gag gifts, see our gag gifts page.
Try a themed party by decorating with 1970's gifts and 70's decorations like disco balls, 70's banners, and so on. Make the guests wear costumes like granny glasses, hush puppy shoes, leisure suits and ankle length prairie dresses. You can complement the theme with our 40th birthday party supplies that include 40th birthday napkins, plates, invitations and decorations.
Have your guests each write down one thing great about the birthday person until you reach 40. Then read the great attributes of the person aloud during the party.
Play some music from that era as background music. You can choose from soft rock hits like from Bread and James Taylor or go the disco route and get everyone dancing.
Hope these tips will help take the stress away from planning your event. Enjoy the best 40th birthday gifts around.
