Birthday gifts ideas

I'm looking for good ideas for 40th birthday gitfs for my sister in law. Does anyone know what I could get her? I'm looking for funny and serious ideas.

What is a rough budget?

If you have a local hotel and spa, they often do a range of vouchers for massages, facials, manicures or spa days to whole weekends! I don't know if the latter would be feasible of she has nippers, but there is nothing nicer than some complete 'me' time. A massage is so so so so nice. I bought my dad and his partner one on holiday last year and they were both in awe of how lovely and relaxing a proper massage is.

You could probably get an hour massage or two 30 minute treatments (i.e. 30 minute facial and 30 minute back massage) for around £45-55. She can always add to it if she wants to make a day of it...

Or you could be a really good SIL and offer to go with her ;) lol

If the above doesn't appeal, let me know - I love present idea challenges!

This is a good idea - thank you. Can you think of something else that would be connected to number 40? Anything, really. My boss said to give her a packet of 40 £1 coins... a Saga magazine and a walking stick. :D :D :D We normally go a bit mad with presents, and as this is her 40 (and mine is later in the year) I want a few things for her...

How about:

0.4 carat (replica!) diamond studs, pendant - you'd have to explain the meaning ;)
http://www.amazon.co.uk/14ct-Carat-Prin ... 41&sr=1-21

I'm sure you could find them cheaper, especially in silver.

40 of her favourite things, i.e. 40 fave chocolate bars/sweets etc, 40 inches of red laces, lol.

40 roses, not exactly original though.

A tiffany keyring (or similar, they are v. expensive but oh so pretty) and get her birthday, or 'Life begins at 40...' engraved on the back:

I'll keep thinking this afternoon and get back to you with anymore brainwaves...

You could always get her some Georg Jensen jewelry its lovely and they make a special design yearly.

So you could get her this years design or if you go through some of the dealers you might be able to get something from the year of her birth?

We got my mum a set for her 40th and she loved it.

Thank you for your ideas Gemstone and Sammiv. I still have till early April, so if you think of anything else please let me know.

I have been investigating what her favourite things are... I'll have a look at the jewellery, but she has never worn anything I bought her before... unles she asked for it...

Try to search it all out in the internet. Try to set your budget, and also the preferences of your sister in law. In that way, you would be able to really appreciate all the good things of it. Good luck! :)
