It’s my boyfriend’s birthday this month and he’s turning 45! That’s a big deal in my book… especially given how much younger I am compared to him. 😉 When I asked him what he wanted for his birthday he told me underwear. Uh, yeah… that’s not gonna happen. It’s not exactly the kind of gift I would pick out for someone that is not my… well small child. I will pick him up some next time I’m at a store that sells some. He’s not a young man exactly, he’s a distinguished man. A man of distinction! Gosh darn it, he’ my man! He deserves gifts for a MAN!
He’s so generous, kind, loving, and supportive. He gets up at the crack of dawn and works hard. He got me amazing birthday gifts all month long – yeah he’s pretty much the bees knees! He gives to me everyday. And I hope that I give to him as well. He’s my man – through and through. I wouldn’t trade him for all the money in the world, because I’m rich with his love! He deserves a manly and generous birthday gift!
I want to give him something incredibly special. Below are 25 amazing birthday gifts for a man – yes, a MAN, in his 40s. A man who deserves wonderful gifts. A man who works hard for us and spoils me rotten. A man who sacrifices for me. I adore that man, as much as I’m sure you do your partner. I did buy him one of these gifts, but I won’t tell you which one, as his birthday is still a couple weeks off… which one do you think I bought???

Love the post! I am having a had time getting the ‘right’ birthday gift for my dad. It is soo much more difficult to get birthday gift for men than women!
I completely agree. I think men always want something practical, rather than a special treat. And I think dad’s are just the worst. Mine always says he want’s nothing for his birthday. He’s a liar… lol. Good luck!

These are all really great ideas. I always feel like you can’t go wrong with something that involves beer or grilling.

My husband and I have been together for so long but sometimes it’s still tough to find the perfect birthday gift for him! I think these are wonderful ideas! Thanks for the list!
I’m so pleased that you like it!
These are some great ideas for gifts for men. We have fathers day in Australia coming up at the beginning of september so i’ll keep some of these in mind
Great gift ideas! Men can sometimes be picky and hard to shop for when we want to get the perfect gift.
The funny thing is that my husband turns 45 this month. And, his birthday gift just arrived an hour ago. He’s always loudly complaining how our small apartment doesn’t have a dishwasher. So I bought a counter top dishwasher which I don’t think he even knew existed. You would think this is something you would stereo typically buy a woman, But I’ve never seen someone who wants a dishwasher as much as my husband. Wish me luck trying to hide it for the next 5 days.
I’m sure he’ll love it! I lived in NYC for years with a small kitchen and no dishwasher. I can’t tell you how many times I almost bought one of those. If he hates doing dishes as much as I do, I’m sure he’ll love it!!
These all look like great gift ideas! You just helped me make a birthday shopping list for my husband!
Aww these are such great ideas! I wish my Dad drank, because I feel it would be so much easier to shop for him.

My husband just turned 33. We gave him some stuff but I would love to surprise him with some nuts, beer, and good cheese.
These are all great. I find it so hard to shop for men. I pinned this to use later. Thanks!

Guys are so hard to buy for! I love all the ideas especially the meat! My husband would love any of those food sets.
These are lovely ideas. I never know what to get my husband for his birthday or any holiday for that matter!

These are all wonderful gift ideas for men. I haven’t heard of MANY of these ideas before now. I love a good cowboy hat for sure.
Lol give the man some underwear too. He can enjoy the cigars and scotch in his new drawers… perfect!!
Misty Nelson says
These are great gift ideas! I always find it so hard to shop for men. My husband especially, he’s the kind that can’t wait for anything and buys anything that would be a great gift for himself. I’m going to save this list though and come back to it for Christmas and birthdays

Those are great gifts for a man! My favorite is the salmon trio. Such a sweet post for your boyfriend. He is a very luck man. Enjoy 😊
Yes he is… lol!
I think buying experiences is also a great thing! Or… making an experience! Dressing up, decorating your living room really nicely and cooking him a meal. Or taking him out to see a sports game!
I always have the hardest time choosing a present for my husband! I think he would love just about all of these options here!
My husband is becoming so hard to buy for. I just don’t want to get him clothes, I always want to give him something he will love. You have some great ideas
Cecilia C. Cannon says
love some of these! we are getting invites to 40th mens birthday parties and some of these would be great gifts for them too.
Great job. These all look like great gift ideas!
