8 Luxury Experiences to Aim for Before Turning 40

Whether it's commemorating all your achievements or simply being thankful for the life that you've lived so far, it is essential to work toward experiencing the richness and grandeur that the world has to offer.

1. Take a break.

At this point in your career, you've been working for at least 20 years, and this warrants a breather. You don't necessarily need to travel far, but consider this a mini retirement-a treat after all the years of hard work you've put in. You could take time off to tinker with a new hobby, renovate a part of your home, or take on a new workout-whatever activity you've been putting off because of conflicting schedules and time restraints. Doing this will leave you refreshed and even more productive when you return to the daily grind.

2. Spend for comfort.

Now is the time to consider paying premium for comfort-the ultimate luxury. Whether it's a high-quality mattress, a fridge, or a car, it is worthwhile to spend on something that you use every day. A luxury car, for instance, offers high-quality engineering, craftsmanship, and comfort, among other features that are essential for driving or being driven in the city.

3. Master your tipple.

It's always good to master the qualities and know everything about your drink of choice. If you're a wine person, start off by taking wine classes or sampling wines by the glass to learn which types of wine work best with the types of food you enjoy. If you're into whiskey, understand it more by planning a whiskey distillery tour, for instance.

4. Acquire a favorite artwork.

You've reached a new age of maturity when it comes to appreciating art and now it's time to shop for a favorite artwork-one that will continuously inspire and enrich you every single time you pass by the hallway or wall it hangs on. There's an emotional aspect to a work of art and now it's time to find one that you connect with and will enjoy seeing in your home.

5. Invest in heirloom jewelry.

A piece of jewelry can be an extension of one's unique taste. The enriching part of collecting the most precious pieces comes from learning about each stone, each cut, and all the different kinds of quality. What's more, it can be passed on from generation to generation as an heirloom. Something that evokes a priceless and wonderful memory that connects each member of family to the next.

6. Find a trusty timepiece.

Fine timepieces remain an essential even in the age of modern technology. The classic accessory continues to stand the test of time for a simple reason-the unmatched, handmade craftsmanship that goes into its production. Be it simple or complicated, a truly nice watch can last a lifetime and be a useful companion.

7. Indulge in the best of your favorite cuisine.

Whether it's booking a table at the world's best restaurant or trying out a dish by your favorite international chef, planning a trip to experience the most authentic flavors and the best meals of a city is always rewarding. After all, there's nothing like food and the people who make them to immerse you in a culture and let you discover its fascinating intricacies.

8. Travel to your dream destination.

Tick off more items on your travel bucket list. Now is the perfect time to embark on that life-changing journey that you've always wanted to take. For an even more memorable trip, try to book unique activities, bespoke tours, or short classes to further enrich the experience. City driving or long road trips are no exception either, especially for open-minded Creative Urban Explorers who are eager to discover new possibilities and inspiration wherever they go, blurring the line between business and leisure.
