Every birthday is cause for gift-giving, as each year in the life of someone we care about is a very precious thing indeed.

Some birthdays, however, seem to weigh more heavily and carry more importance. We call them milestone birthdays.

When we've reached a certain age, achieved a new station in life, or encountered some new rite of passage, it seems fitting to mark the day with a celebration - along with a unique 40th birthday gift or gesture that is especially meaningful and memorable.

Why 40 is So Special

The 40th birthday is definitely one of those extra-special occasions that calls for a unique and sentimental gift. By age 40, we have experienced much and have hopefully become more comfortable with who we are than we were in past decades.

Forty is often an age where we finally decide to shed old insecurities and inhibitions, and focus more on the importance of health, friendship, and inner happiness than on looks or social status.

Often, 40 is the age at which we finally begin to appreciate what is truly important in life. It is also a birthday on which many people tend to reflect on their life - on where they have been, where they are, and what they envision for their future.

A 40th birthday party can go a lot of different ways depending on the personalities of those involved. A light hearted, jovial person will probably appreciate the humor in an "over the hill" themed party while others will appreciate a more straightforward celebration.

Forty is kind of a big deal, and whether it's a backyard barbecue or an elaborately planned trip overseas, the occasion should be celebrated in style and with great enthusiasm.

Beyond the Party: Unique 40th Birthday Gifts should stand out and make a statement.

Planning a party is one thing, but picking out a unique 40th birthday gift for your 40-year-old friend is more easily said than done.

Finding something that is both meaningful and unique is no easy feat, and you don't want to default to a less-than-amazing gift at the last minute because you still haven't found anything.

In these situations, it's an easy fix to simply pick up a gift card for a restaurant or jump online and order some flowers.

However, gift cards and flowers - no matter how graciously they are received - say nothing about the unique relationship between you and the recipient of your gift.

Nor do they have any real staying power in terms of being memorable or physically durable.
