I was 40 last week and have ummed and ahhed about my birthday gift.

I don't have any hobbies. I have lots of jewellery. I'm not into handbags (although I wouldn't turn down a Mulberry Roxanne!)

Any ideas?

What about a spa day type thing? You could go somewhere really lovely and get a few treatments for that kind of money. You lucky thing! ;)

Ah, that sounds lovely but not really possible. We work opposite days and nobody to have the children. GAH!

A watch? Beautiful scarf? Are you leaning more towards something attractive and useful, or frivolous and beautiful?

A pair of boots or a leather jacket?

I would go for a watch or a ring to mark the occasion..prob a watch as you have lots of jewellery, maybe with engraving on the back if u like that

For my birthday next year I would like a really nice garden bench as ours is looking a bit shabby, something like this would be perfect.

Is it greasy?

I'd go for a cashmere scarf .

Mine got me a vanity plate plate for my car. I change cars a lot due to high mileage and frees me up to replace with same age car
Some think it's daft but I love it

Thanks for replies - have three leather jackets (bit of a shopping addict) and 6 watches!

Loved the idea of the private plate, something I'll always have. Managed to get initial of month of birth, day of birthday and then my initials so it's fab! grin
