What about 40 meals?
No idea really but I’m aware women value the gesture more than the material aspect of something
Not to focus on what to get but more how/when it is delivered or something

Now this is a tough ask.

How about giving her forty POSITIVE comments/statements about the world around the two of you.

Yep that’s similar to what I’d suggest, an experience rather than a pysical gift.
its my 15 years this year, I’m taking her to New York, first class. a small price to pay for putting up with me, your a long time dead.
Wry nice owls

A couple of ideas, if your wife likes gardening. Floriade world gardening exhibition is on this year. it is only on every once every 10 years. this time it is at Almere, nr Amsterdam.
As you have never been to London, loads to see and do. have a long weekend in a hotel .

Just show her you still love her mate...easy...if she loves dancing take her dancing...if she loves heavy metal take her to her rock concert or anything inbetween....after 40 years you know what puts a gleam in her eye so do that so she looks at you like it's 1982...and well done on 40 years

Depends what she’s into. If she’s into sun and glam book a decent holiday - moon palace resort cancun mexico is amazing highly recommend it.
If she’s more of a home holiday person you can hire vw campers. Hire 1 and do a UK tour

Spend a long time thinking what to get her, ask everyone what you could get her, spend a bit too much money on what you get her, but most important thing is keep the receipt because she is going to take it back and buy something else.

You’re bob on there mate!

Si got me a laptop one year for my birthday. I appreciated it in the sense that he spent money on it that he worked for, but I’ve barely looked at it.

He bought me a loose leaf teapot the same year for Christmas and I lost my s**t over it!! Best gift ever!! Bloody love a decent brew!

Ah Hector I’m sorry you feel like that. I’m currently of the opinion that life is rich whether you have kids or not. Just different paths.

I can see how much joy children have brought the people around me. At the same time not having kids can give you other choices and freedoms.

And frankly if you found someone you’re happy to share your life with then that is a massive stroke of good fortune in itself!

We’re all lottery winners to just be here.

As for what to get Mrs Hector….. I’m rubbish to ask. I agree with those who have said an experience or a trip away. Something grand or even just a weekend. I don’t remember or think of the stuff I have. I think of all the things I’ve done

One of the best trips I had was to Ivalo, Finland to see the northern lights. Booked with ‘aurora zone’. Was amazing!!

Congratulations on 40 years :birra:

Are you suggesting that a memorable potato might do the trick, if given whilst on a special trip to Lidl?
