30th Birthday Gift Ideas for Women

Updated on August 20, 2014

30th Birthday Gift Ideas for Her

Here, you will find 30th birthday gift ideas for women.30th Birthday Gift Ideas has gift ideas for all turning 30 and I wanted to create something that has thirtieth birthday gift ideas just for women. I have been there and done that as a few years ago, I turned 30. It wasn't that bad, but each year after that gets a little more depressing!

I am more of a shopper than I am good at crafts so you won't find any info on how to make fabulous 30th birthday gifts..... but you will find some gifts you can personalize and let the online store do the personalizing for you which makes the gift a little more personal.

30 Things Every Woman Should Have and Should Know by the Time She's 30

This book was published in 2012 and was based off of a list that Glamour originally published in 1997 that went viral. In the book, notable women such as Maya Angelou, Katie Couric, Kathy Griffin, Taylor Swift and others, help expand upon the items in the list.

I think it sounds like an interesting read for someone turning 30.


A Movie She Loved as a Kid

You can get her a movie she loved as a kid. Perhaps she liked the Little Mermaid which came out in 1989 and is now on Blu-ray?

The Little Mermaid: Diamond Edition [Blu-ray+DVD]
The Little Mermaid: Diamond Edition [Blu-ray+DVD]

I got The Little Mermaid on Blu-ray for Christmas.... I had been waiting and waiting for it to come out on Blu-ray and decided to put it on my Christmas list, but I would have bought it anyway if I didn't get it.

Anyway, it could be nostalgia kicking in but I think this is one of the best Disney movies ever made with cool characters like Ariel and Sebastian, and songs like "Under the Sea" and "Part of Your World"

Don't get me wrong, other Disney movies also have great music, but I have the soundtrack to this one and used to replay those songs I mentioned lots of times!


Established 1984, 30 Years Old

The shirt pictured here says 30 years old and Est. 1984.... she probably won't have one of these shirts. I think most women love getting clothes as gifts.... my mom usually gets me a lot of clothes on my birthday and for Christmas and she never asks me my size, but they always fit (and I don't live with her now so it would be hard for her to peak at what size I wear.)

You might have to find out the birthday girl's size if you are going to get her a shirt or any clothing gift. It might not be that hard if you are in the same family or have someone that lives with her you could ask and tell them not to tell!

If you get her a 30th birthday shirt, then maybe you'd want to get her another shirt to go along with it, like a shirt featuring her favorite band or something like that. I'd be really happy if someone got me a Bon Jovi t-shirt as I listened to Bon Jovi A LOT growing up and I still do.

13 Going on 30 - 30th Birthday Gift Idea for Her - Movie!

13 Going on 30 [Blu-ray]

13 Going on 30 is a cute movie where a 13 year old girl magically gets transported into the body of her 30 year old self (played by Jennifer Garner).

It makes an interesting 30th birthday gift for women who like cute chick flicks.

I saw this one at the theater when it came out and loved it.


Movie from the Year she was Born

Here's a movie I like from 1984 that women born in that year may find interesting and yay, it's got a mermaid!

Engraved Connoisseur White Wine Glass

Wine glasses make a great 30th birthday keepsake for women.

You can personalize a wine glass for her 30th birthday with her name on the first line, and you could fit a saying like "30 Years Old" or "30 Years Young" or "30th Bday Girl" on the second line. Or you don't have to put anything about turning 30 as it would be nice to just have it personalized with someone's name.

Good Morning America 1980s Retro Candy Gift Box Special

I ate a ton of candy as a kid and while I don't eat as much anymore it's fun to reminisce about old candy. Pictured here is some 1980s retro candy with a cute box. Some good candy I liked growing up in the 80s included Jolly Ranchers Sticks, Pixy Stix, Pop Rocks, and of course Nerds! If she's watching her figure or can't have sugar, you might want to skip this idea.

For Coffee Loving 30th Birthday Girls

For 30th birthday girls who love coffee, how about a 30th Birthday Coffee Mug?

You could get her some packaged coffee to go along with it. Of course, if she likes tea or hot cocoa better then you could get her a different beverage than coffee.

Mark My Words 30th Birthday Mug, 4-3/4-Inch, 20-Ounce Capacity

The mug pictured here is cute with a nice 30th birthday saying on it.


What do you think would make a good 30th birthday gift for women?
