30th Birthday Gift Ideas - Special Presents for a Thirty Year Old

Are you looking for 30th birthday gift ideas?

The 30th birthday can be an interesting thing. Although, in terms of age, it's not middle age or even advanced age, yet many people share trepidation about turning 30.

On the other hand, a lot of people actually look forward to turning 30 and consider it to be a huge milestone and accomplishment. These are things that you should keep in mind when purchasing birthday gifts for someone turning thirty.

It's probably safe to say that women have more trepidation about turning 30 than men. When it comes to women, a lot of emphasis is put on youth and turning 30 can sometimes signify a change from becoming a girl or young woman to an actual woman, which might not be considered as youthful. Of course, if you ask someone in their 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond, they will probably tell you that 30 IS youthful, so it's really all about perspective.

With that in mind, however, keeping presents fun and entertaining can be a great way of ensuring that the person turning 30 has a memorable and exciting birthday experience. Here are some useful 30th birthday gift ideas.

Gift sets are always a fun present idea. Making your own gift set is creative, shows thought and consideration, and can be a lot of fun in the process. I, for instance, like urban exploring. When I turned 30, some of my friends got together and made me an "urban exploring set." It was a basket filled with a travel book for my state outlining abandoned buildings, a flashlight, some batteries for my digital camera, a memory card, measuring tape, gloves, and a water bottle. These were all inexpensive items, but the thought that went into them was impressive - a simple yet special 30th birthday gift idea.

A friend of mine turning 30 was pregnant at the time and had been sick throughout the pregnancy. The gift basket that was prepared for her had chocolate bars, some scented bubble bath, a paperback book, a rubber ducky, and a favorite CD. This was greatly appreciated by someone that wanted some time to herself. Again, this was a simple but thoughtful 30th birthday gift idea.

Men like gift sets, too, and 30th birthday gift ideas for males can also center on this concept.

If you're purchasing a gift for a man turning 30, then keep his interests in mind and try to be creative. If he likes working in his workshop, then consider a bucket filled with screwdrivers, nails, hammers, gloves, and other essential items. If he enjoys gardening, then think about a wheel barrel filled with potting soil, seeds, spades, gloves, weed remover, and fertilizer.

By this age, most people have hobbies that they enjoy and that they might not feel as though they have a lot of time to devote to. Buying them gifts that coincide with those hobbies can be a good idea. Go along these lines and you would likely get inspiration for many 30th birthday gift ideas.

On the other hand, 30 is still a young age and most people appreciate gifts that get them out of the house, too. Therefore, gift certificates to favorite restaurants, cinemas, and attractions can be a lot of fun.

If you have the money, and the person that you're buying for loves adventure, then consider tickets to an amusement park for the day. If you're not feeling that adventurous, then tickets to a concert might be appreciated, too. These, too, are possible 30th birthday gift ideas.
