40th Birthday Gifts – Foodie

You know what your 40th birthday entails? Nope. It’s not wishing it never happened, or spending the day in the bed to avoid a celebration. Your 40th birthday entails a can-do-anything attitude and a creative freedom that you are totally unashamed of. After four decades, you are freer than ever to be the you that you have always wanted to be.

You might celebrate your 40th birthday with jokes, like “People don’t turn forty. They turn 39.95 with shipping and handling.” Or, you may celebrate your 40th birthday with inspiration and philosophy, like this one from author C.S. Lewis. “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” Either way, you greet the big 4-0 with excitement, mirth, and anticipation for what your future holds.

You age like fine wine or delectable cheeses. Slow and to perfection with a deliciousness that makes others crave your attentions. Think of your 40th birthday as your foodie year; the one where you explore new tastes, worldwide, indulging in cuisine from every culture. Plan for gourmet travel to be your new addiction, your 40th birthday gift to yourself. After all, some of the best things in life are tasted. And you can start right here in Australia.

Food or Tours? Which one makes the best 40th birthday gift?

Both! Which is why we at Gifts Australia offer foodie tours; a unique experience that takes guests on informative, intriguing treks through wineries, chocolate shops, breweries…you name it, and we tour it. You could even mix and match these 40th birthday gifts, sending your birthday celebrant to Melbourne for a beer-tasting tour one day, then to the Mornington Peninsula for a pizza-making class the next day. It is feasting, drinking, and fun all rolled into one.

Do you have a serious, hard-core foodie on your hands? Take your birthday beauty or beau on a tour of a chocolate shop, where they handcraft delectable truffles and yummy fudge. Of course, there are samples galore everywhere. Or, give them the opportunity to learn how to mix, knead, and roll out their own delicious pastas with a class taught by a professional chef. Crave an adrenaline rush and adventure with your spirits and grub? Take your birthday sweetheart on a high-flying tour of the ocean via helicopter.

Is your birthday foodie as much as chef as they are a taste tester? We have cookbooks and kitchenware galore. Need a picnic to go for their 40th birthday celebration? Grab one of our gourmet hampers. We pack these picnic boxes full of good foods that foodies will love. Like a bottle of wine, exquisite cheeses, crisp crackers in a variety of yummy flavours, handcrafted chocolate truffles, and fresh-baked cookies.

Stuck between 40th birthday gifts for your foodie? Gifts Australia offers gift vouchers in the amount of your choosing. The birthday celebrant can come back, peruse their own foodie experiences, and spend the voucher on the gourmet tour or hamper of their choice. Simple as that.

Customize, Personalize, and Smile!

There are multiple options for you as a gift giver from Gifts Australia. We can immediately alert your birthday guy or gal in an email to let them know they have a package coming. Or, it can be a surprise, delivered to them on the date you specify. Or, better yet, you can have the gift delivered to your door, then gift it to them personally. We think the third option is the best because you can see them smile when they receive one of the best 40th birthday gifts ever.

Customization and personalization are super-important when gift-giving anything to anybody. Not just foodies for their 40th birthday. If you want to wow your birthday guy or gal, include a complementary birthday message. You tell us what to say, and we will ensure your message gets to them with their present. Or, another great option is spending a little extra on a handwritten birthday greeting card. You can pick the design and colour, then we will handwrite your birthday message to that special someone.

Want another way to make their 40th birthday gifts extra special? Choose the gift-wrapping option at check out and include the recipient’s favourite colour. After wrapping, we will handcraft a pretty bow out of colourful ribbon. Easy-peasy!
