Funny & Creative 30th Birthday Gift Ideas for Men and Women

If you want to get someone the perfect 30th birthday gift, but aren’t sure what to get, check out our gift guide and see what you find. It’s filled with perfect 30th birthday gift ideas. Turning 30 is a great milestone! Everyone will be at a different place at 30, but it is still a wonderful milestone that deserves to be celebrated. Do you know someone who is turning 30? Maybe it is your spouse, a coworker, or maybe it is your child! Just think about how much they have grown up and matured in their 30 years. Maybe now they are married, have their dream job, or have kids to think about and buy gifts to. If that isn’t a cause for celebration, we don’t know what is!

10 Things to Consider When Looking for 30th Birthday Gift Ideas

1. Upgraded barware is great

Once you leave your 20s it really makes sense to move on from drinking out of red solo cups.

Okay, you can bust them out at a backyard barbeque, but that’s about it! Instead, consider getting a nice set of either wine glasses, beer mugs, or liquor glasses.

Consider what they like drinking the most and focus your attention on that particular set.

We also recommend getting a large enough set so that they can have friends and family over and give them nice glasses to use as well!

2. Remind them of their hobby

Life only gets busier as you get older, and someone turning 30 may have gotten so busy with life they have forgotten to keep up with their hobby or hobbies!

A great gift idea is to get them something that will remind them of what they love (is it yoga? A sport? Perhaps running?) to do and encourages them to take some time to do.

Life will always be busy, but it is important to always save some time to enjoy the things in life that really make you happy. Help make that happen and you’ve got a great 30th birthday gift!

3. Go for the wow factor

Turning 30 really is a milestone event, so if there was ever a year to splurge on a gift, this would be it!

Is there something special that either this person has been looking at, or that you have been looking at to get them?

Their 30th birthday is the perfect time to do so- maybe that is a nice set of golf clubs, a nice piece of jewelry, or the latest and greatest smartphone.

Think about it, the next milestone birthday won’t happen for 20 years!

4. Consider a joint gift

If you don’t have a large budget, don’t feel bad! A great idea instead is to gather with family or friends to pool your resources and give one joint gift from all of you.

This is a great way to ensure no one feels too much of a burden to spend a lot of money, but you can still really wow your friend or family member with an awesome affordable gift.

5. Think tech

There are so many cool gadgets out there, that even if you have a more limited budget you can find something cool!

From the latest fitness tracker to fun drones, VR devices, and more, there are so many tech toys out there, and they make for a great 30th birthday gift.

6. Find a nice subscription service

Don’t pick out the gifts yourself, just pick the subscription service. This is an awesome 30th birthday gift idea and results in your friend or family member getting a gift at their door each and every month!

Are you shopping for a busy parent? Why not get them a subscription service that delivers dinner right to their door? A dog lover? Get them something that’s all about the latest dog toys and treats!

Or, go for a beauty box for the glam goddess in your life. There are so many options these days!

7. Reminisce

Is your old college roommate turning 30? Or maybe your spouse? Why not think back on some of the great times you have had together and use that to inspire your gift!

Consider making a personalized gift like a collage, that is truly a special gift that will be so meaningful to them and that they will keep with them forever!

8. Make their life easier

Between work, children, bills, and trying to maintain a social life (just to name a few) life gets busy. By the age of 30, you are exhausted! A great gift idea is to help make this person’s life easier.

Maybe that is some new organizational tools, upgraded kitchen appliances, or something they can use at work. They will greatly appreciate anything that will make their day go smoother.

9. Spoil them

After all, turning 30 is a big deal. Now is the time to really spoil them with some luxurious gifts. That doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money!

Maybe it is a nice robe to get cozy in after work, or a set of face masks to use after a long week, or a trip to the spa for a massage and a pedicure. These are great birthday gifts for any age group, but the older you get, the more you appreciate it!

10. Go for the experience

You can never go wrong with getting someone an experience gift. Maybe that is booking a weekend trip with your spouse who is turning 30, a mother-daughter trip, or a getaway with your close friends.

You will never forget these experiences, and in many cases, they are better than any tangible gift you could give!

What Do You Get for Someone Turning 30?

Turning 30 can feel a little shocking, but it is still time to celebrate. Saying goodbye to your 20s can feel like the end of being young, but anyone who is over 30 can tell you that that is not the case!

If you know someone who is turning 30, they might be feeling a little down, but it is your job to help them remember that age is just a number. Most people choose to throw a huge 30th milestone party, and if that is the case, you need to show up with the perfect gift.

Even if there is no party or big event planned, it is still a nice thing to do to show up with a thoughtful gift to help them kick off their 30s on a good note!

So, what do you get for someone who is turning 30? That’s the question on a lot of people’s minds.
