Throughout our lives, we go through several big birthdays that traditionally are celebrated more than others. This is probably because we are proud of ourselves for making it to this age, or because we now get to do certain things such as retire or be treated like an adult. One of the big birthdays that people celebrate is their 40th birthday, indulging in big parties or even taking a trip abroad. In this article, we are going to give some tips to the partners of people who are turning 40 this year. Here, you’ll find everything from how to choose the right gift to what to do on the big day. Keep reading if you’d like to find out more.
Your wife’s 40th is a big day in her lifeand so you should make sure that you start the preparation for this early. Unless you are going to do something really extravagant, you don’t need to start planning until a few months beforehand. Never start planning as late as two weeks before as you might not be able to get a gift on time or book that hall for the big event. If you take the time to plan the big day carefully, you will be able to get everything right and it won’t seem rushed. This will also give you time to gather some ideas, book some time off work for her and get everything right. You can start as early as you want, as long as you don’t start too late!
Ask Your Wife
The first tip that we have for you is to ask your wife what she would like to do for her birthday. You might find that she has been planning this event for many years and that if things don’t go to plan, she’ll be disappointed. You also might find that she doesn’t want to do anything at all and so you should respect her wishes and plan accordingly. Never plan a big party for someone who doesn’t want to be in the spotlight. Make sure to ask your wife what she wants to do and if she gives you permission to plan it then you can go ahead with the rest of this guide.
Our first celebration idea is for those who don’t want to have a big party. Parties can be expensive and they only really last one night. You also might find that if your wife isn’t interested in being in the spotlight then she might like this idea a bit more. Think about booking a trip abroad for your wife’s birthday. You can sit back and relax in the sun while she turns 40 and enjoy a cocktail by the pool. This is a great solution for many husbands or partners and so it is definitely something to consider. Think about splashing out and choosing somewhere she has always wanted to go. You could keep it as a surprise and just ask her to book some time off work and pack a bag.
Choose The Right Gift
If you are going to impress your wife on her birthday then you need to think carefully about the gift that you are going to buy her. Of course, if you are taking her abroad then this could be her gift but if not, you’ll need to buy something. Think about whether she would prefer something more sentimental or if she would like something expensive. Make the decision based on what your wife likes and try to take note of anything that she mentions that she wants in the lead up to her birthday. A quick google search for ‘40th birthday gifts for her’ will give you some ideas on nice trinkets and jewellery that you could buy for her. If you’re looking for inspiration, Edora’s 40th birthday gifts are beautiful and something which you should look at if you are struggling for ideas. They have small 40th keepsakes as well as pricier pieces of jewellery which are guaranteed to impress. Don’t rush the gift-buying process, think carefully and you should eventually come up with something that she will love.
Organise A Party
Of course, the most popular solution for celebrating a 40th birthday is to organise a party. You could rent out a local bar or community hall and turn it into a great night. Think about inviting her family and friends and decide if it should be a surprise or not depending on how much she likes surprises. The theme of the party is entirely up to you but make sure that you match it to your wife’s interests and not to your own. This is her 40th birthday and you will want to make it as special as possible. You could even make it a bit more fun by adding something like a photobooth or a band.
Get Your Kids Involved
If you have children, you should think about helping them out with getting something for their mum in the lead up to her 40th. They might be too young to buy a present, but your wife will appreciate getting something from them so consider taking them on a shopping trip. You could also encourage them to make her something, paint her a picture or even decorate the event hall for her party. Make sure that you get them involved in some way or another and she will appreciate the effort that you have gone to.
Plan A Nice Meal
If you can’t quite afford to go abroad and you don’t want to have a party, think about planning a nice meal. You might find that your wife doesn’t want to make a big fuss about her birthday and so a nice family meal or just one with you and her might be ideal. You could book a table at her favourite restaurant and surprise her on the night. On the other hand, you could cook her dinner and show off the skills that you have been practising in the lead up. Turn your dining room into a restaurant, add some candles and make the evening special. She will love the effort that you have put in and you will be happy with the results – even if you are not the best chef!
If you are going to be in charge of planning your wife’s 40th birthday then you need to make sure that you are planning far enough in advance. Think carefully about what she would like to do on the day and consider making the whole thing a surprise. If possible, you could organise a big party and get all of her family and friends involved. She will love going into a big hall and seeing everyone that she loves coming to celebrate her big day. Make sure that you get her the perfect gift and think about getting her something more sentimental if you don’t think that she would appreciate something expensive. This is your wife’s big day and you should make her feel as special as possible. Get your kids involved, plan a nice meal and make it look like you have put a lot of effort in. Make sure to follow the tips in our guide and it should be a success.
