Q:

What is a good thing to do for a 40th birthday?

A:

A good way to celebrate a 40th birthday is to do whatever the guest of honor wants. Turning 40 doesn't have to be full of doom and gloom, jokes about being elderly and gag gifts such as denture glue and hemorrhoid cream. The celebration can be as fun and fabulous as any other party.

Plan a fun spa day with a group of other people who are also about to turn 40 or who have recently hit that milestone. Get facials, pedicures, massages and body wraps. Eat a delicious lunch and enjoy time with friends or family. This celebration is perfect for ladies.

For men, plan a golf outing. Spend the day on the range having fun, then go out for a decadent dinner to celebrate. If golf isn't the guest of honor's favorite sport, go to the batting cages then catch a baseball game. For the basketball lover, play a game in the backyard, then head out to watch the pros play.

The party can have a "Forty and Fabulous" theme, or, if the honoree wants, even an "Over the Hill" theme. Check with the guest of honor to find out which theme suits her best. Spending time with friends and family is a great way to celebrate any birthday.
