40th Birthday Party Ideas for Husband

There's a birthday so there has to be a party? Not necessarily. Not the exaggerated extravagant kind anyway. Unless of course he prefers it that way. The point being, you need to find out what he prefers.
If being with just a close set of friends is going to do the trick, then so be it. But if a huge group of relatives and friends together is what he needs then let's get him that.

Assorted Groups

Over the years, one develops friends that can be categorized into school friends, college friends, work friends, gym friends etc. So if you're up to it and you know he'll like it that way, plan a separate dinner for each of the groups.
That way he can have his comfort level with each of them without having to worry about neglecting a particular group for the other. God knows he'll have fun with this great birthday party idea.


Why settle for the usual restaurant/ living room/ garden party when you can think of a completely unique location that has never been tried before? Think yachts. Think the rooftop of a 40 floor building. Think an auditorium or amphitheater of a school ground.
Then the usual decorations will probably follow, but the thrill of a new place will be a welcome change from the birthday parties he's been having through his life. Think about it.

Adventure Sports

Forget all the rules about a normal birthday party and go in for something that is just not expected. If you guys are into good shape and are not weak-hearted then this is really a good option to be looking into―do some adventure sports.
It could be paragliding, bungee jumping, sky diving, or even a milder version of the above―scuba diving. That adrenaline rush that it'll give him will simply wipe away all the lows.

High-end Gift
