Most women have taken on multiple roles in their 40 years, from daughter, sister, and niece, to mother, aunt, lover, homemaker, business woman, caregiver, and rock-steady support. We rely on these women so much, so it’s a great thing to give back in heartfelt, memorable ways. Our collection of 40th birthday gifts extend past books, of course, but we like to highlight the must-reads for ladies who need a little time to themselves.

For example, for the birthday beauties with a creative, artistic streak, we offer several adult colouring books. The details are intricate and beautiful, requiring patience, time, consideration, and imagination to bring the pictures to life. She can colour tigers in such a way that they seem to jump off the pages, or spend hours adding vibrancy to elaborate line-work, or go into a calming, meditative state with a colouring book of unique mandalas.

If the birthday babe doubles as your lady love, she is probably less than thrilled about turning the big 4-0. As her confidante and sweetheart, it is your sworn duty to make her feel good about herself. We have bunches of inspirational books that would be the perfect 40th birthday gift for her. Many of them are packed with heartfelt quotes and phrases; ones that will really make her stop and think about the love she has for herself and others, as well as how beautiful and amazing she is, both inside and out. Make it extra special by penning a sweet note on the inside cover, especially for her.

Sure, the birthday gal in your life loves books, but she probably loves other stuff just as much. Like animals, for instance. We have a proverbial shelf of fantastic must-reads for animal lovers.

Most of our pet book selection comes in coffee table book sizes, making them a staple in her living room.
