30th Birthday

Celebrate a 30th birthday

If the 30th birthday of someone special is approaching, it's cause for celebration! Whether you're going to stay in or head out for a night on the town, this milestone birthday calls for a unique and memorable party that will get the birthday person's thirties started off on the right foot.

One popular 30th birthday party idea is to make reservations at a local restaurant, bar and/or club and enjoy an evening out. If that's how you plan to celebrate, make sure you book early to make sure you have your choice of venues. Pool together some money to be sure the birthday person wants for nothing on his or her special day and enjoy yourselves!

30th birthday gifts should also be chosen with extra care, so if you need some help coming up with ideas, there are a few tips you should keep in mind to help you find the perfect present.

30th Birthday Gift Ideas

When you're thinking about birthday gifts, here are some options to consider:

  • Experience and adventure gifts. These have become increasingly popular in recent years, and include everything from tank-driving, helicopter piloting and race car experiences to up-close-and-personal experiences with wild zoo animals and outdoor adventures. If the birthday person has a particular interest that you can help them experience, something along these lines makes a great 30th birthday present.
  • Gag gifts. Many people experience some trepidation over their 30th birthday, but the reality is they're still plenty young. You can joke about the arrival of their "old age" by giving "over the hill" gag gifts.
  • Practical gifts. Of course, you should also try to give gifts the celebrant will actually use. Making a list of his or her interests, aspirations and hobbies always helps you generate lists of ideas, and chances are the perfect gift is in there somewhere.

After the gifts have been handed out, it's time to cut loose and enjoy! An evening filled with the birthday person's favorite music, some dancing and, of course, a special birthday cake will all help make the celebration memorable and enjoyable for the guest of honor and his or her friends and family.
