What are some ideas for 40th anniversary gifts?

My parents have been married 40 years.

40th anniversary is a very long time in marriage.. i would suggest a nice vaction trip to possibly an exotic island like hawaii to enjoy the beautiful weather. Possibly go on a trip to somewhere they have always wanted to go to but may have not had the chance too.

The traditional gift for a 40th anniversary is the ruby. So ruby jewelery would be a great gift. However, you can also interpret this in other ways, for example a really nice case of ruby red wine or a trip to the Ruby Golf Course in the Bahamas.

Make them a scrapbook of good wishes. Send paper, a SASE and instructions to family and friends. Ask them to include photos or mementos. Put everything together in an album.

The best idea is a second honeymoon. Otherwise a remarriage ceremony is always popular. I would avoid gifts for the house, unless it is something shared like new patio furniture.
