Hair And Beauty Gift Ideas
Women like to look good at 30 so anything that will aid in making them look and feel good is always a good gift idea.
Vouchers for manicures, facials and spa days are great for pampering and for helping women feel and look good and will almost always be appreciated. Or why not book her in at her favorite hair salon.
Gadgets for aiming women to look and feel good on a day to day basis such as flat hair irons, curling irons and hairdryers make good gifts. Also nice shampoos and conditioners, their favorite make up, perfume and expensive moisturiser make nice gift ideas too. Of course, don't buy them items they don't need or don't have.
Hair tools - some unique ideas include a hair straightening brush. She will never use her flat irons again when she realises she can get the same results by brushing her hair with a straightning brush. Another idea is a waver which allow her to put waves in her hair rather tan tighter curls. If she wants curls check out the Infiniti Pro hair tool for quick and excellent curly hair.
Or what about perfume?
Many 30 year old women love reading magazines so a subscription to their favorite magazine would make a much appreciated gift.
Days Out or Weekends Away
30 year old women will love days out or a weekend away for a birthday treat or other gift. If she's a sporty girl why not book a day out trying a new exciting sport, bungee jumping, paintball, pony treking etc.
If she would like a more relaxing option, a weekend away in a nice hotel would be a perfect present. Or, a night out her favorite restaurant.
If you are short of money, why not treat her to a nice relaxing day at home. Cook her a meal, do all the housework, look after the kids and give her a day off!
30 year old women like to look good and jewelry can make a lovely keepsake for an important birthday. Cuff and charm bracelets such as pandora bracelets are popular at the moment.
Also consider jewelry with birthstones. These are more personalised and can make a special gift.
Of course, if your not sure what to buy a gift voucher is a good choice. Or take the 30 year old women out for a days shopping so she can choose what she likes herself.

A watch makes a practical gift for a 30 year old woman. It can also be beautiful. Some popular brands at the moment include Michael Kors, Kate Spade and Fossil (see below).

If they are sporty you could also get them a sports watch with stopwatch, alarms and other features. There are different watches for different types of sports. For example, runners and cyclists and hikers may appreciate a watch with GPS or a heart rate monitor.
I love the design of the Fossil watch below. It makes a lovely keepsake for a lady in her thirties.
Gifts with a 30 Theme
There are lots of specific gifts you can buy for women on their 30th birthdays. What about getting some music from the year they were born? Or buy them gifts with a 30 theme such as 30 different chocolates or 30 pairs of socks or a £30 gift voucher. What about a t-shirt with the number 30 on it?
A box of retro candy from their childhood is another fun gift.

A Movie from the Year They Were Born
Another gift idea for a 30th birthday is a movie from 30 years ago. 1984 was a really good year for movies too. They include The Karate Kid, Ghostbusters, Gremlins, The Neverending Story, The Terminator and Splash.
Or you could get them a movie they enjoyed when they were growing up. My sister in law was 30 this year and one of her favorites that she used to watch over and over again was The Little Mermaid. It was released a few years after she was born but it's a great reminder from her childhood.
This idea can transform to other types of media too. You could get them some music from the year they were born or their favorite book they enjoyed as a child!

Did you know that at 30, Harrison Ford was working as a carpenter, and neither Oprah nor Jane Austen had found fame. But on the downside you've lost 10 per cent of your muscle mass and are older then 42 per cent of Americans.
