Sorry to disappoint you, but women don't ever get to be 40. There is no such a thing as 40th birthday for women. You might as well shoot us. And don't even mention 40 is the new 30, unless you have a death wish. Women can be very sensitive and often prone to anxiety attacks. You never can tell what they're gonna do at the mere mention of the word "age," let alone "40th birthday." Never ask a woman how old she is. It is considered rude to ask. By whom? By women, of course. Plus, you'd never get the correct answer, so why bother risking your life?

But if.. and that is a big "if," women had a 40th birthday, don't give her a coffee mug or t-shirt that says "When You're Over-the-Hill You Pick Up Speed," or "It took me 40 years to get this good." Those are guy's stuff. Women don't like to be reminded, let alone make fun of, their age. Not that women don't have a sense of humor. On course, we do. We just don't like it if the joke's on us. Ok? And we hate birthdays!

Again, if.. and that is a big "if," women had a 40th birthday, here are some wonderful 40th birthday gifts for women - awesome gifts for Wife, Mom, Sister, Girlfriend and Girl Friends.

40th Birthday Gifts for Sister and BFF (Best Friends Forever)

I have three sisters. All of them have had their 40th birthday. Obviously, they are much younger than I. Believe me, it was rather embarrassing that when they celebrated their 40th birthday, they were all smiles. The question "Do women fake it?" comes to mind.

Here are some lovely 40th birthday gift ideas for sisters and best friends forever.

  1. Make-over - If your sister or friend has her own hair stylist AND she looks good, take her to her own hair stylist and have a new hairdo. If her hair looks questionable, take her to your hair stylist instead. This is a great birthday gift idea, specially on her 40th birthday.
  2. Manicure and Pedicure - I treated my sisters to manicure and pedicure and they love it. I want one, if and when I ever get to be 40. Sitting there and letting someone do your nails is absolutely wonderful.
  3. Movie Night - You can take your sister or friend to the latest romantic movie or comedy whichever she likes, or you can have a girl friends small party and rent a couple of movies. Women love sad movies. For some reason, we enjoy crying our eyes out.
  4. Dinner - A movie and a dinner would be ideal. But just taking her to her favorite restaurant will be great, too. Your sister or friend will love to have their favorite dessert. Just make sure the word "birthday" is not mentioned in the restaurant, or the stuff will suddenly appear singing "Happy Birthday," and this might cause your sister or friend to sob on the spot.
  5. Buy her a drink or two or three - If your sister or friend likes to drink once in while, this will be a real treat. If your sister or friend loves to drink, this will be a wonderful birthday gift idea. If your sister or friend has a drinking problem, take her to a coffee shop.

40th Birthday Gifts for Mom

Kids, listen here. It's Mom's birthday. Never mind how old. A birthday is a birthday. The very best birthday gift for Mom is peace and quiet. Can you do that? You may also give her a big hug and lots of kisses. Mom loves hugs and kisses. Mom also love those lovely birthday cards you make and all gifts you make yourself. Mom is easy to please. You know why? Because Mom loves you and anything you make and give to her, she will love and treasure it forever.

Tell Mom she can take a nice bubble bath, and promise to behave and not make your baby brother cry.

Ask Dad to take you and Mom out to a picnic, or the movies, or to mini golf. Mom loves to be with her family.

No, sweetie, you don't make a birthday cake for Mom. Ask Dad to buy a birthday cake and you can stick the candles on top. Let Dad light the candles. And yes, you can sing "Happy Birthday" as loud as you can.

And tell Mom you love her. She already knows you do, but Mom always love to hear you say you love her.
