Messages From Many People

‍This is a great way to laugh and cry together on this special day, even if some of the people in the video message will not be able to see everyone in person.

Share Pictures and Video

Sometimes pictures and videos are the best memories to share, and you don't need to talk at all. You can easily turn the family photo album and video collection into a memorable collage of events to share with the 40-year-old in your life. We sometimes forget where we have come from, and getting back in touch with our younger selves can be really moving for everyone involved.

‍‍This kind of video can lead to some tears, but they are always happy tears. People you are sharing these memories with may be a little embarrassed seeing their younger selves but really happy that you shared these special memories on their birthday.

Make a Keepsake

‍‍You can actually invite many different people from all around the world who know the 40-year-old having a birthday and let them make videos with a message to share. This can be the perfect way to include distant family and friends who cannot see the person having a birthday. You might even have family or friends in other countries who want in on the action!‍

These videos are made by sending out invites via messaging apps or email. These invites allow participants to upload their videos and be included in the keepsake event. This is a great way to use your network of friends and family to make this birthday a special one for the birthday person.

Live Video

If you are able to get everyone together for a live chat, you can surprise the birthday person with a live chat with everyone they have not seen in a long time. This kind of fun video interaction for birthday events can lead to shock, surprise, and gratitude. This is a great idea if the 40-year-old having the birthday isn’t available at home.‍

Getting family and friends together to chat with the 40-year-old having a birthday is a really great way to make everyone feel closer and make the day even more special!  There is no shortage of reasons why this might be the best idea, and the person having the birthday will be so glad that everyone thought of them.

The Birthday Letter

‍Sometimes, you want to speak from the heart and deliver everything that is hard to say personally to the person having a birthday.  You can combine this kind of video with images and video clips of times that you have shared or childhood memories that stand out to you both. Talking about your feelings can be much easier when you do not have to look at the person you are telling these deep things to.

‍The birthday letter video can be a great way to tell the special young adult that you love them and that you remember every moment of their years in your life. This is really moving and a unique kind of video to create, and it can become a treasured keepsake for the receiver. 

The Party Recap Video

If you took a bunch of fun videos during the birthday events and you want to share them with everyone, this is the best medium to get that done. An edited video that shows the highlights of what happened on this milestone day can be really fun to watch and can make a keepsake video that can be viewed over again by the person having the birthday.‍
