Wearing shoes that are too tight can hurt your feet. For shoe lovers, that is one of the worst nightmares they can have.

Bonus, they can even put soap and shampoo when they don’t have a beer in hand.
Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug
As working folk’s buddies, coffee or tea lovers won’t last a day without a cup of their favorite beverage. Some would even prefer their beverages at a specific temperature, otherwise, it goes down the brain. However, the temperature goes down as time passes by, which makes it less appealing to the taste. Ember solves that dilemma as it heats the mug to the desired temperature with one touch. The best thing is, the thermometer and heater can be managed via an app. So, for the picky coffee addict, save her tons of frustration with the Ember smart mug which controls the temperature for up to 3 hours.
Purple Back Cushion
Back pain is a common problem for adults reaching their 40s. Most of the time, this is because of a sedentary lifestyle. Much of it is because of people’s desk jobs that require them to sit a full 8-hour shift. The Purple back cushion is designed for people who sit all day. It encourages them to sit properly for the next 8 hours or so. Don’t need to worry about sweaty backs, as the cushion has air channels that neutralize the temperature. Bring it anywhere, use it everywhere, such as the car seat to the office chair at home.

Contour Legacy Leg & Knee Pillow
Adults in their early 40s can’t deny their bones are becoming brittle every day. Often, they would wake up each dawn with back and shoulder pain. For their birthday, offer them something to lessen these discomforts. The orthopedic pillow is created for side sleepers to diminish the pressure on the back, hips, and knees. Regular pillows can be troublesome and cause thigh sweat. Not with the Countour. With air holes that promote air circulation, side sleepers can relax easily in any position they prefer as long as they have the pillow between their legs. Then, wake up each morning feeling good and rejuvenated, without a single aching bone or muscle in the body.
Urban Accents Movie Night
When you are in your 40s, you learn to appreciate the things in life in their plainest form.

The popcorn kernels come in different seasonings: chili lime, sizzling sriracha, sweet and salty, white cheddar, and buttery caramel. Sprinkle the seasonings to the popcorn for an added spice.
StowCo Small Portable Cooler Bag
When a hardcore beer lover means business, know that you can’t go wrong with a cooler bag. Look cool without looking like a fool with a suitcase full of alcohol. No one will ever notice what’s inside because of the cool aesthetic of the case. As they say, don’t judge a book by its cover. In this case, by its bag. Cold drinks stay cool even without ice because of the foam insulation. The case itself is lightweight, so they will bear the weight of the liquor. Each bag can hold up to 10 beer cans or 3 wine bottles.
Umbra Tuck Jewelry/Storage Box
It is always good to give value to what they treasure. Women at 40 would have collected several jewelry and accessories of their own. Ditch the usual jewelry case and go for a natural look like the cube-shaped jewelry box. Made from natural wood, the Umbra Tuck is the best box to fit in small spaces as the containers are stacked one after the other. Making use of the vertical space adds simplicity and elegance to any space. No worries about getting a scratch on the accessories as each compartment is lined with fabric.
