30th Birthday Gift Ideas for Men

Updated on January 16, 2015

30th Birthday Gift Ideas for Men

I've had to shop for men turning 30 and hopefully you will find some of my gift ideas useful if you are now shopping for a guy turning 30 soon. You would of course know the guy best and could get him something to do with his interests, but some gag gifts might also be fun.

I gave my husband a really hard time when he turned 30 with black wrapping paper, balloons, and some over the hill gag gifts. I think he had a good time though.

Funny Book for Men Turning 30! - Make him Laugh out Loud

Curious about what men shouldn't do after they turn thirty? One thing they don't want to do is to give someone a high-five in a business environment. There are also certain movies they shouldn't rush to see on opening night, like ones that have "Wookies" or elves, etc....


Video Games!

For guys still into video games, you could try to get him a retro game from childhood, but then you would have to make sure he had a system to play it on. Or you could just get him a current game for a console he owns.

The latest game systems are the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U, but they are still selling games for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Wii and you might be able to find some good deals on games for these systems.

A Movie from the Year He was Born (1985)

He may enjoy a movie from the year he was born as a birthday gift. And he's probably seen or heard of The Goonies, a popular 80s movie that people still enjoy watching today.

To go along with The Goonies as a gift, you could also get him a movie he liked when he was growing up. You know how little kids had one movie they watched over and over again?

Note: The Goonies was released in 1985, which is the year he'd be born in if he's turning 30 in 2015.


IT'S BEER:30 - What time is it?

A BEER:30 gift would be funny for a guy who is turning 30! This would be a cool one as a decoration at a 30th birthday party too - if the party is at a house then use this doormat! He could also then use this doormat for his man cave after his birthday.

30th Birthday Hunk

If 30th Birthday Man sounds a little boring... how about
30th Birthday Hunk on a t-shirt?

Yes, guys can still be hunks when they turn 30. And now they can have the t-shirt to prove it!

You could also get them another t-shirt gift to go along with this like a retro shirt that has to do with something they liked when they were growing up, such as cartoon characters, video game characters, or their favorite band.

This is a cool doormat that says "IT'S BEER:30 YOU'RE RIGHT ON TIME." That it has "30" in it makes it a fun 30th birthday gift for him. Its also a gift he could enjoy after his 30th birthday, because it's always BEER:30 as far as the doormat is concerned.
