Turning 40 years old is a major milestone in a woman's life. It is often the kind of event that gives someone a fresh impetus and renewed inspiration regarding her lifestyle. Giving a gift can be an opportunity to support new, healthier habits that a 40-year-old woman might be eager to take up--or it can simply be an occasion to spoil her.
An iPod Shuffle for the active businesswoman or mom
The iPod Shuffle is an inexpensive, high-tech music player that is ideal for complementing any outdoor or indoor activity, including workouts, jogs and even shopping. Its size (one of the smallest MP3 players available) means that you can carry it anywhere, whether it's in your pocket or on your arm. Further, its voice technology means you never even have to look at it to navigate through the songs, which is why it is perfect for very active women in particular. A 40-year-old woman will no doubt appreciate its ease of use, design and sound quality.
Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2010 (Nintendo Wii) -- fitness through fun
Many mothers have their own Nintendo Wii--even though they might not have any use for it, as it is monopolised by the kids. This game is a perfect avenue for changing that and turning a children's video game console into a gym. Jillian Michaels is famous (and perhaps even infamous) for being the tough and pitiless trainer who helps people lose weight on the show "The Biggest Loser." She obviously knows what she is talking about and has many exercises and tips to share. A 40-year-old woman will enjoy the exercise without having to travel to the gym. It might also be an opportunity to bond with the kids by sharing one of their favourite activities.
An espresso machine for the gourmet
Being 40 years old is sometimes synonymous with the term "maturity," that is, a woman has usually already accomplished a good deal of what she wants from life. It can be a time when a woman wants to take the time to enjoy some of the simple pleasures of life. For coffee lovers an espresso machine is an absolute blessing: espressos, Americanos, lattes, cappuccinos and hot chocolates--the list of treats you can make with it is longer than you might think. The final products will taste just like those from a fancy coffee shop, and you can get all that at the touch of a button. Additionally, some brands offer prepackaged capsules to make your coffee-making even easier. This appliance is perfect for the busy executive as well as for the woman who enjoys entertaining at home.
