A man's 40th birthday is a milestone to remember. As a gift buyer for a man turning 40, you can take a few different routes. You can focus on a creative, gag or genuinely needed gift. He may appreciate a funny gift that will make him smile. Of course, consider his personality when deciding his gift.

Gag Gifts

Consider the man's personality and what he will find funny. Popular 40th birthday gag gifts include "over-the-hill" humour, funny birthday cards, false teeth, anti-ageing soap, daily decision dice, extra large playing cards and a walking cane. A homemade gag gift you can easily make is to fill an empty pill bottle with colourful jelly beans and slap a label on it. For example, the label can instruct him to take a red jelly bean for forgetfulness, pink for restoring hair loss and blue for correcting eye problems.

Gift Basket

Buy a packaged gift basket or make your own. Putting together your own basket allows you to pick items that the birthday recipient will want, appreciate and enjoy. You can include his favourite toys, season tickets to his favourite sports team, meats and cheeses and other items. Most importantly, make the basket fit his personality.


Create a scrapbook or photo collage to highlight the best memories from his life. You can pick up the basic materials at a local store and get photographs from old photo books. Keep it a secret until his birthday, so it will be a surprise!
