Forty Things To Do Before you are 40 is a thoughtful birthday gift for anyone approaching, but not quite 40, whatever their gender, likes and hobbies.
The cute black gift box houses 40 envelopes, and 36 of them contain a surprise activity that the recipient can do alone, with friends, or with family. There is a mix of activities that might be a night at home with friends, a night out with a loved one or a day trip to somewhere new.
Each envelope will inspire the recipient to try something new, go to a place they’ve never visited before, and to make a whole bunch of new memories.
As well as the pre printed cards, we’ve included four blank cards for the recipient to add a bucket list idea or perhaps something you’ve planned as a surprise. Envelope colours are chosen at random, so each box is unique, and also includes a leaflet explaining how to use the box.
How to make the gift personal
You need to choose your text colour along with the recipient’s name or a short message below.
Record the memories
To keep the memories that are made safe we’ve created a journal which is perfect to hold the card and any photos, tickets or receipts to be looked back over or shared with others. The journal has 60 double pages to save all the cards with space to write any notes, the ring bound book is printed in silver on the front.

Our boxes are 100% recyclable, and are constructed from ‘greyboard’ which is made from a mix of recycled and waste paper. The outer wrap paper is also recyclable.
Where possible the paper we use for our card and envelopes is sourced from FSC certified suppliers.
