Party Favors for 40th Birthday

What are you going to focus on when planning your party favors for 40th birthday?! You got it - Over the Hill! 40 is one of the most fun ages to celebrate because it truly represents a change from the younger adult years to the wiser, more confident ones.

So why does the age 40 come with such a negative connotation? Well, many people consider this the "over the hill" point. What does that mean exactly?

According to, "over the hill" means a reference to a journey over a hill. Once you reach the top of the hill and begin your journey down, you have passed the midpoint and are on the downside or decline (over the hill). With age, once you have past your peak, you are on the downside/decline."

Depressing, right?.......NO!

We here at Perfect Party Favors feel that turning 40 should be celebrated as a major accomplishment! The things you know at 40 outshine the things you thought you knew at 20. If you have kids, they are starting to grow into young adults in their own right. If you have been working hard at a career through your 30s, it will start to pay off as you enter this new decade. You've been around long enough to know what's right and what's wrong, and also know exactly who you are and what you want in life. Bravo to you!

Over the Hill Party Favors for 40th Birthday

Of course we can't help but have a little fun with this birthday. So whether you are hitting 40 with anticipation (be it of the excited or dreaded kind), own it!

"Pills" for old age. Collect old pill bottles and thoroughly wash them to get out any left over medication residue. Completely remove prescription labels. Fill each bottle with a fun, small candy (M&Ms, Tic-Tacs, Skittles, etc). Create a label sticker to affix to the pill bottle that reads, "Use for Old Age ailments such as backaches, forgetfulness, or general crankiness."

Gag Favor. Celebrate "old age" by supplying your guests with a Senior Citizens party pack. Include things such as wrinkle cream, Early Bird diner cards, Activia Yogurt, Ensure shake mix, funky magnavision spectacles, etc. Wrap your items up in an adult diaper (Depends!) and tie off with a silver ribbon. Add a personalized tag.

Cookies. Always a fun treat, you can go with the "over the hill" variety (think Tombstone or hill shapes) or you can create a fun and fabulous forty theme with sparkly, bold colors shaped in the numbers 4-0!

Mint Tins. Personalize a mint tin with a fun forty saying. "Lordy, Lordy look who's forty." Or "The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age." ~ Lucille ball. You can buy these tins already made or create them yourself.

CD. If you are really creative, create a CD of about ten songs from the year the person turning 40 was born. Create your own labels with a picture of the guest-of-honor and an insert with song titles.
