May be you have some ideas, but here's what I'm offering―40th birthday ideas for husband that will get him out of that funk for good. Interested?

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.
Over the years, one develops friends that can be categorized into different groups―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 luncheon or 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.
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.
40th Birthday Gift Ideas for Husband
So what are some of birthday gifts that you can use? It all depends on the kind of fellow that he is, really.
If he's a voracious reader, he's bound to have a list of favorites. Order the really rare, really unique, vintage book collections and surprise him. It could be a rare copy of his childhood comics book or the out-of-publication rare hardcover. Getting a gift that has special memories attached to it is something he'll love and cherish for the rest of his life.
This one's it. You know the really, really expensive, you'd have to sacrifice-your-kids-college-tuition kind of gift. Something he's always fantasized about but never really bought. Buy him that. It could be golf clubs or a high-end camera or any other gadget. Of course you must have your finances in order and plan this one out well before actually getting down to it. Many times we simply discard the idea as preposterous without ever giving it a due thought.
