Since Printfresh founder Amy falls in the 40 something age group and also has a birthday coming up we asked her to help choose some of the best gifts for 40 somethings including a few special items she might be hoping to receive when she celebrates this year. No matter your friend or loved one’s taste and your budget, we hope this gift guide will take some of the stress out of searching for the perfect present - and leave you more time for what’s really important, enjoying each other’s company.  

For the one who prioritizes great food and beverage

Murray’s Cheese Board of The Month club membership 
This curated box comes with everything you need to put together an incredible board for date night or girls night in. A selection of cheeses, crackers, accouterments, and even instructions for putting together the perfect board (but we don’t blame anyone for diving in and just snacking right out of the box). Price: Starts at $113 for one month but can be purchased for up to one year

 W&P Porter Bowl + a KeepCup 
For the one who is always on the go, try this W&P Porter bowl and a coordinating KeepCup so they can take meals with them. Whether they’re driving the kids to soccer practice or need to lunch on the run between meetings, they can do it in (sustainable) style! Price: Bowl: $20 KeepCup: Starts at $23

For the one with the wanderlust 

Surfing and Yoga in Mexico 
At this point, who doesn’t need a wellness retreat? Send them away for a few days of fun in the sun practicing yoga and (learning how to) surf. If that’s out of the budget, maybe consider a massage and a package of yoga or pilates classes closer to home! Price: Starts at $4,495 for a double occupancy room

Hansel from Basel Socks
In a variety of bright colors and bold patterns, Hansel from Basel socks make a great gift (or addition to a grouping of gifts). No matter their style or taste you’ll be able to find the perfect pair to give. And from keeping feet cozy on a hike to some more urban shopping and dining in a new city, these socks make a great travel companion as they come in a variety of cuts and styles to suit any need. Price: Starts at $14

Chloe seashell sunglasses
These stylish and fun glasses might immediately make them think of vacation and time on the beach. So, even if they can’t get away right now, let these fun and whimsical sunglasses serve as a reminder to book that beach getaway. Price: $79.97

For the one who just wants to stay home 

Printfresh pajamas & slippers
For the one who likes to stay home in style, give the gift of Printfresh. While our sleepwear is designed to be slept in (obviously), it’s also designed to be seen. She can host brunch or step out for a few errands and look fun and fanciful in any of our prints. We’ve also added slippers to the mix to bring style (and craftsmanship) to her footwear. Mix and match for a style that is truly her own. Price: Pajamas start at: $112 Slippers: $128 

Monroe towel, House No. 23
With its generous size and organic cotton fibers, the Monroe towel is a great choice for gifting. Allow them to feel pampered after a long, hot bath or relaxing at the pool or beach. Price: $76 

OSEA Anti-Aging Body Balm
To add to her nighttime routine consider the gift of OSEA’s nourishing and hydrating balm. This particular formula also helps keep their skin feeling firmer and more supple. The perfect gift for someone who lives where it’s colder outside around the holidays. Price: $48

S Is for Style: The Schumacher Book of Decoration, By Dara Caponigro
This beautiful book can sit on their coffee table for inspiration. Created with three unique patterned covers that are being sent to purchasers at random, the text focuses on Schumacher's greatest contemporary patterns. Price: $75 

Human Touch Whole Body Massage Chair
For the one with an achy back (but can’t make it to the spa as often as they’d like) consider investing in a massage chair. Founder Amy invested in one early in the pandemic, and she’s a fan for life. There are many options out there at a variety of price points, but this one is highly rated and will get the job done! Price: $2,299
