30th Birthday Ideas for Him: A list of birthday gift ideas from men who were asked what they would like to receive for their 30th birthday!
3oth Birthday Ideas for Him
Just a couple of years ago, I was right where you are…
What do I get my husband for his birthday!?
Before marriage it was,
What do I get my boyfriend for his birthday?
I totally get it. They can be SO hard to shop for, no matter what your relationship with them is. It could be a good friend, or even a brother or family member!
Well, I wanted to put an end to all of the guessing games, so I polled a TON of men around the age of 30, to get to the bottom of it, and find out exactly what men really wanted for their 30th birthday. (Give/Take a few years if need be.)
One of my favorite gift ideas for him is this “I think you’re Red Hot!” gift “basket.” See how I made it for my hubby here for Valentine’s Day, but could be for a birthday or a “just because” gift:
For the Sports & Outdoorsman:
• Golf equipment (Shop Golf equipment here.)
• Overnight trip to play at his favorite golf course with buddies. (Plan a trip with Expedia here.)
• Sporting event tickets (Baseball, Football, Hockey)
• Fishing gear (Shop fishing gear here.)
• Guns (Shop guns here.)
• Hunting equipment (Shop hunting equipment here.)
• CCW Class
• Grill (Shop grills here.)
• Man-cave — Get him out of town, buy a tv or two and fix up a space just for him. When he comes back, surprise him with his friends already hanging out inside.
For the Handyman:
For the Musician:
For the Professional:
• Necktie (Shop neckties here.)
• Cologne (Shop cologne favorites here.)
• New pair of shoes (Shop all styles of shoes here.)
• Bottle of bourbon with nice glasses (Shop decanters, carafes & glass sets here.)
For the Adventurer:
• “Escape the Box” – Check your area to see if this is offered. He can take some friends, get locked in a room with a one hour timer, and have to find all the clues to get out before the hour’s up.
• “Drive a Tank” – A place where he can drive a tank, and plow over cars, houses, and operate machine guns. For more info, click here!
• A Mexico vacation – See how I surprised my husband for this 30th birthday here, with all of the little surprises along the way!
For Any Man:
• Favorite Cake (Cheesecake, Ice Cream Cake, or favorite flavor)
• Money to spend on himself
• Full body massage (Extra special from wife or girlfriend, but spa is nice too!) If it will be from you, make sure you read up on the post I wrote, “5 Ways to Prepare for a Romantic Weekend away with your Husband.” You may just find a few tips for yourself in there!
I so hope you found a few gift ideas for the man in your life! It was so nice hearing from men, what they’d actually want for a gift for their birthday. I was completely shocked at how many actually spilled the beans. But that’s good news for us! Woot!
