Top Ten: Great 30th Birthday Gift Ideas for Him

Updated on April 20, 2013

10 Best Gifts for a 30 Year Old Guy

Is your man nearing that 30-year mark, and you have no clue what to get him, don't worry! Finding a perfect birthday gift for any guy is pretty difficult. Just because he's about to leave his beloved 20's, it doesn't mean he isn't the same guy you know and love! But to ease your mind, hopefully this list of potential ideas can help you in finding the perfect gift.

Most men try to not showcase their emotions. That may make you feel like a genuinely heart-felt gesture won't go over so great with them. However, that isn't always the case. Some guys may really like homemade gifts, while some may like experiences better. Some might like things that include kids (if you have them), while some would prefer a romantic get away. Just think about what you think they'd prefer for their 30 year milestone.

Here's a list of gift ideas to get your man

Top 10 Best Gift Ideas for Him on his 30th Birthday

  1. A surprise vacation: Any hardworking man would love to have a little get away. It could be just you and him, or you could bring the kids along too. It would be a relaxing experience you would both enjoy.
  2. Tickets to an event: You could get him tickets to his favorite team, or tickets to his favorite band. Even if you don't love the team or the band, you love him, so watching him have a great time should make you have a great time too.
  3. An experience he's always wanted: You could go skydiving together, go in a hot air balloon, camping, hunting, etc. Something he's always wanted to do or something he really loves doing will be a memorable way to spend his 30th birthday.
  4. A Nascar driving experience: Let's be honest, what guy doesn't love Nascar? And even if they don't, what guy wouldn't love driving a car that can hit 200 MPH. You and him would have a great time doing this together, and it would be totally unforgettable for both of you.
  5. Create a picture globe: If you have kids, or if you are just starting out as a couple, this is a heartfelt gift almost any man would love. You simply get a globe, and you glue on pictures of your life experiences together. Whether it's pictures of your kids, your marriage, the proposal, anything memorable to both of you.
  6. Hotel suite just for you two: If for your lifestyle, a romantic vacation just isn't possible, consider this alternative. You could get a suite just for the two of you. It would be relaxing, and it probably would be pretty fun too. It would show how much you care about each other, and it would be a fun break from your normal routines.
  7. Get him gear for something he likes: You could get him sports memorabilia, hunting equipment, anything like that. He'll definitely appreciate it, and it certainly won't go to waste.
  8. Surprise meal: You could surprise him when he gets home from work or whatever with his favorite homemade meal. It would show you know what he loves, and you took time to prepare it for him. He'll appreciate it and he won't forget it any time soon. He may even start demanding a meal like that every day if he liked it that much.
  9. A powerpoint of memorable moments: You could create for him a power point of inside jokes, pictures, songs, and memories of your time together. It could show all the milestones you have crossed as a couple, and it would show that there are more to come too.
  10. His favorite movies: You can buy him DVD's of his favorite movies, and you could watch them together. It could even be a romantic night with wine and everything. He'll love the movies and now he can watch them whenever he wants! Plus, whenever he thinks of them he'll think of you too. Just make sure you get movies he really does enjoy, else it might not be that fun of a night for either of you.

Turning 30 is a Milestone

These are just some potential ideas for what to give your boyfriend, husband, or even just a guy friend for his 30th birthday. For almost any birthday these are great ideas. Get him something he'll remember and love because for a lot of guys, leaving the 20's is a bit painful. Show him you care and love him with something unforgettable, because 30, is just one of the many milestones to come.
