Putting a little extra effort into selecting the perfect 45th birthday gift for your friend or family member can mean the difference between an unforgettable item or a cherished one. When you cannot think of a specific gift, consider the person's personality, hobbies and interests for inspiration.


Many 45-year-olds are still very active, making the gift of a bicycle a good bet. The birthday boy can use it to both stay in shape and have fun on the weekends. If you spend a lot of time with him, buy one for yourself as well. Remember to choose a bike that is appropriate for the trails or roads he will use it on.


If the woman you are shopping for has a full plate, with a job, family and children to take care of, select a gift that will help her relax. For example, hire a professional masseuse to come to her house and give her a massage. You could also choose a gift card to a local spa so that she can also schedule a facial, manicure, pedicure and any other services. If you go this route, take care of her children or hire a babysitter so that she does not have to worry about the logistics.

Brewery Tour

Many cities are home to microbreweries that offer tours to show people how they make beer. Head to a nearby brewery for this experience, during which time you will likely be able to try all sorts of different beers. Once the tour is over, purchase a few bottles of your friend's favourites for him to take home. Then, go out to a nice dinner at a restaurant that serves beer flights. For a wine-loving man, go to a winery or local vineyard instead.

45 Gifts

Add a whimsical touch to your loved one's celebration by giving her 45 gifts for her 45th birthday. Send her 45 flowers or select 45 chocolates and arrange them in a nice box. You could also choose to buy a variety of items, including just a few extravagant ones and lots of smaller ones. For instance, buy her a pair of earrings and matching necklace, but also give her less expensive gifts, such as mixed CDs and love letters.
