My lovely friend bad chief bridesmaid turns 40 very soon. She is single, no kids. Has lots of "stuff". Wouldn't choose to have a spa day.

If you were recently 40, what was a good gift you received? Looking for some original ideas ....

How about an activity if some sort?
Theatre/gig tickets
Cookery masterclass
Tickets to a gallery and lunch?

I received a Fortnum and Mason hamper from my friend - just having it delivered on the day was great and such a surprise and the luxury food was lovely. The hamper basket itself is lovely too...

Similar to Blankets suggestion...
My best friend did a framed collage of photos of us from primary school to 40. It is brilliant and was my favourite present. I also appreciated the Ruinart champagne from her too.
