There’s a wide selection of options to choose from, so you’re sure to find something you suit your husband, colleague, boss or friend amongst our range of gifts.
By the time we reach 40, many of us have well and truly left our days of cheap drinks and ramen behind and developed more discerning tastes, which is why our Epicurean Entertainer Hamper is such a popular choice for 40th celebrations! If you’re buying for someone who appreciates gourmet flavours and fine food options, they’re sure to love this hamper. It comes absolutely brimming with delicious treats like crunchy Brother’s Blend premium nuts, Byron Bay Cacao Chocolate, Byron bay crispbreads, Wattle Tree Creek Chutney, Duck Creek macadamias and honey roasted macadamias and Byron Bay Bliss Balls. It also comes with a bottle of Mt Yengo Pinot Grigio, so they can enjoy a glass of crisp white while they snack!
No 40th birthday celebration is complete without a toast, so why not get him the very best? A bottle of Moët & Chandon Brut Impérial Champagne is the perfect gift for a birthday celebration!
For important birthdays, our Gourmet Delights Gift Hamper should be your go-to. This hamper comes with a full-sized bottle of Moët and a huge selection of gourmet snacks, so he can sip on a glass of bubbles while nibbling on chutney, crispbreads, biscuits, Wallaby Bites and nuts.
If the special man in your life loves to indulge in gourmet fare, we’d recommend getting him the Diner’s Delight Hamper. It includes the perfect mix of treats, like Byron Bay crispbreads, cookies and Wattle Tree Creek chutney and gourmet cooking essentials like Salted Cure Premium salt blend, Byron Bay extra virgin olive oil and Zest marinade, as well as a cookbook with 220 pages of pictures and recipes written and photographed by Byron Bay residents and a wooden chopping board that can be used for serving or cooking. It also comes with a bottle of Penfolds 'Koonunga Hill', a classic Cabernet Sauvignon.
If he’s a rum drinker, then he’s sure to appreciate our Lord Byron Spice Rum Hamper. This is a great celebratory gift for 40th birthdays. It comes with a show-stopping bottle of 12 year old Lord Byron Spiced Rum which is made locally here in Byron Bay and delicious goodies like Byron Bay cookies, dark chocolate almonds, maple munchies, crispbreads and jam. Lord Byron Spiced Rum has a complex flavour profile with hints of oak, vanilla, freshly-pressed cane juice, pipe tobacco, creme brûlée, chocolate and bourbon, so it’s a great sipping rum that pairs well with snacks.
Turning forty is a big milestone, so it’s often nice to get a gift that commemorates the importance of the occasion. If you’re looking for ideas, we’d suggest a signature number. Get his friends and family to sign it and it will be something that he’ll be able to cherish and keep with him forever.
