Best 40th Birthday Gift Ideas 2022

Turning 40 is something to note—whether she feels like it or not. In the eternal words of Mary J. Blige, “age ain’t nothing but a number.” But a good gift is forever. Honor that she is a full adult with discerning tastes and a great skincare routine with something that will simply amplify her already well edited collection of homewares, clothes, accessories, jewelry, and books.

Want her to relive her glory days of clubbing with the new Cobrasnake tome from Rizzoli? Or is she more PMF mat with embedded crystals material?
