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:

“You’re RED Hot!”

      Hi Andrea! You know, I just had the shirt company who made it, order it for me! If you get it made at a local shop, they may be able to get a baseball tee for you!

  2. This is such a cool list! I have long been searching gift ideas for my brother who is turning 30 years old next month. He has returned home after 2 years from London and I wish to shower lots of surprises on him. But nothing impressed me except a tiny jar gift which is full of lovable quotes. This is something unique and luckily I found it on a site called KindNotes. But I feel this is not enough and I want something more compelling and here my searches are ending. The Red Hot gift pack is wonderful. I also loved fishing gears, drums and Mexico trip ideas. My brother will be spellbound for sure having these gifts. Thanks for sharing this list.

    You covered all sorts of men and you did not leave anything. Jessica I love your suggestion and this amazing gift ideas. My husband does not have any hobbies or any big interest and always has been a difficult case when buying a gift is in question. Even for him I find something on this article. Thanks
