30th Birthday Gift Ideas

A 30th birthday is a big moment. It’s an incredibly exciting time where we really get to know ourselves. That’s worth celebrating, if you ask us! Whether your son or daughter is approaching the big milestone, or you’re looking to give your best friend the ultimate 30th experience, finding a gift that seems like it was made for them is so much more meaningful. Luckily, we’re here to help with our list of 30th birthday gift ideas.

30th Birthday Ideas for Him

As he gets older and his tastes change, picking the right gift can be a tough ask. Something you might have picked for their 21st might not be quite right now. We’ve found some ideas that should get a big smile when they hit the big 3-0.

Cactus Mix Grow Kit

Why get a pet when you can have a plant? A Cactus Mix Grow Kit is a great chance for someone turning 30 to practice caring for a living thing. Admittedly, a dog might be a bit more challenging…

Port Decanter

There was a time when you and your best friend would drink anything you could get your hands on. The good times don’t have to stop just because they’ve hit 30, but a Port Decanter might be a classier option for your partner-in-crime. Plus, it’ll look pretty impressive on the mantelpiece.

Smartbox Awesome Adventures Gift Experience

To celebrate the adventure that is “journeying into their thirties,” how about gifting your son, grandson or best friend an Awesome Adventure Gift Experience? You can choose from over 630 experience days, and even join them for an unforgettable day out together.

30th Birthday Present Ideas for Her

When they were in their twenties, gifting money in a card was an easy win. Now they’re approaching their 30th, it’s the perfect chance to gift something more personal. We’ve put together a few ideas for the 30-year-old daughter, sister, or BFF in your life.

Treat Her Gift Experience

Get it right first time and let her choose from a selection of over 2,995 activities. Grab a Treat Her Gift Experience and you could both be relaxing in a spa or creating unforgettable memories on an adrenaline-fuelled adventure.

Festival Fabulous

Now’s the time for your 30-something to create a bucket list and tick off the things they’ve always wanted to do. Never been to a music festival? Treat them to a Festival Fabulous Book so they can create their ideal festival look, before throwing on their wellies and heading off to watch their favourite band.

Gardeners Beauty Gift Basket

As we head into our thirties, many of us start to develop green fingers. There’s something therapeutic about potting plants, but it’s messy stuff, so this Gardeners Beauty Gift Basket could be the perfect gift for a budding Titchmarsh.

Personalised 30th Birthday Gifts

To mark such a big milestone, it’s nice to push the boat out and do something different. A personalised gift can really show just how important this big birthday is.

Personalised Happy Birthday Prosecco & Candle Gift Set

Whether you’re surprising your best friend with a big 30th night out or a relaxing evening in, kicking off the celebrations with the pop of a cork and a glass of fizz is a must. This Personalised Happy Birthday Prosecco & Candle Gift Set comes with a personalised label, so the bottle doubles up as a keepsake of a wild (or not-so-wild!) night.

Personalised Blended Whisky

With the pace of modern-day life, it’s important to take a moment to slow down. A glass of Personalised Blended Whisky is the perfect excuse for them to sit back, relax and enjoy some well-needed ‘me’ time.

At Moonpig, we think every single birthday deserves the royal treatment, but a 30th birthday is one of life’s big landmarks and deserves a little more attention. If you’re still stuck for ideas, our gift pages are packed with unique ideas to help mark the big day in a big way.
