A woman can celebrate her 40th birthday by engaging in a relaxing activity, such as visiting a spa for a facial or getting a massage. A fun and carefree birthday celebration can also be held at a skating rink, an amusement park or any fun, vibrant place that allows the woman to relive certain aspects of her youth.
A woman can also have fun on her 40th birthday by attending a dinner or birthday party where all her loved ones and friends are present. Party-goers can make a list of 40 things they love about the guest of honor to make the occasion even more special.
Instead of a birthday cake, a woman can celebrate by sharing 40 of her favorite treats with friends and family. For instance, 40 cupcakes or 40 doughnut holes can make the birthday celebration especially enjoyable.
If the woman wants to make a significant life change for her 40th year, she can make a pact with her friends to walk at least a mile a day for 40 days. This is likely to turn into a habit that leads to better overall health. A woman celebrating her 40th birthday may also appreciate a 40-minute video from her loved ones telling her how much they love and appreciate her.
