It's my 40th in April a d my wife has asked me what I would like. I am one of those people that has everything(I think) I need. Anyone got any ideas what she could get me?

I have already said for her to get me nothing, but she insists.

Any ideas?

I got a very nice original John Haskins oil painting of the Empire State building.

Was the last thing i was expecting but i love it.

Rather than an object, how about a trip or an activity?
Weekend away. City break either UK or abroad.
Track day. Clay shooting. Paintball. Sky diving. Hot air balloon. Trial flight.

Send the wife away for the evening and invite the best looking 16 year old who will have you home for a long night. To get ready for it don't delete all those spam emails you might still receive, one of them could come in useful. Enjoy life while you can.

A decent watch... ;)
Ditto! A nice watch makes a perfect 40th present! Maybe one that could be an heirloom to your kids??

This time last year I spent my 40th in The Maldives which was bloody awesome. Whilst a nice watch would last for much longer than a fortnight, the memories from the trip last for ever.

I would go with the watch. Just don't go for a 'designer' make, someone who makes clothes, but buys watches in and sticks their name on them.
How much does she want to spend?

I bought a laptop for my 40th (3 years ago) and the wife uses it daily (I have never touched it yet).

It's my 40th next Jan....I've already asked for a nice watch.

Nothing too expensive - I quite fancy a Citizen eco-drive (Blue Angel or Black Eagle).

Its my 40th in may ,i'm off on a mini break to the concentration camps in poland...
A meal and some krug with mrs and tickets to see a comedian,then a day night out with lads ending with a bash at an album launch party...

I do want an imac for my mini studio ,but i've told her not to bother,i'll buy it myself...

And then i'll take a quiet moment to reflect on what being 40 means for me...Scary...

What makes it scary? I'm not bothered about turning 40!

I'm 40 today.

Currently I'm in a hotel in Zagreb Croatia. This evening I'll probably go out with some friends; at some point it will involve naked females and poles I imagine.
