50 Birthday Ideas for 30-Something Year-Old Gifts
This is not college anymore. We can’t push the snooze button and sleep for another two days skipping classes. We have to get to work. Clocky is a devious machine, which starts running away from people after they hit the snooze button once. Clocky actually runs away around the house, forcing the victim to get up, catch it and turn the alarm off. The sounds it makes are so nerve-shattering, nobody has a choice but face the cruelty of yet another week morning. Despite this, Clocky has awesome reviews, and is one of the funniest 30th birthday gift ideas for best friend.
This makes one of the best gifts for 30 year old people, as come on, going to a karaoke party downtown? No, in our thirties, we no longer like making complete fools of ourselves in public. However, that really depends on how much we drink, really. So, if you have a 30-something buddy who is into karaoke and disco, this is a party gadget you should offer him or her. It is good for his or her health. Karaoke and a moderate quantity of alcohol do wonders to a person’s cardiovascular health. Or so does the science say.
These warm slippers are for those 30-something year olds with an increased sensitivity to cold. If your friend or colleague goes home while late in the office, these plush USB Heated Slippers can do them a world of good. They are wearable at home too. Not sure if they fit all sizes, but if you have a 30-something old friend who hates winter, this is the perfect present for him or her.
While this present can work well for some ladies, it is actually one of the best 30th birthday gift ideas for him. Guaranteed to satisfy all needs and occasions of people in their 30s: before office meetings – to relieve stress; after office meetings – to relieve stress; during sudden parents in law visits (make sure nobody sees you); after a fight with the spouse (make sure they don’t see you); after a philosophical conflict with the kids (use instead of kids). And so on. Enormous advantages over your general quality of life.
At this age, we pretty much gathered everything we needed. And we pretty much lose them a hundred times a day, starting with the car keys and ending with the cell phone that has to be somewhere in the purse. Or house. Or wherever. This wireless locator allows people to color code their most precious items and when the crisis hits and you hear your friend or partner screaming “Where the f* did I put the remote / dog / child / tablet / unpaid bills”, you can remind them that, by a single push of a button, they can find their Earthly possessions without much fuss. This is the right present for a forgetful 30-something.
We all have a friend or a partner who feeds on coffee every morning in order to stay alive. They pump up a few cups during the day to keep everybody unaware that they are zombies underneath that professional attire. Well, this is one of the best of the gift ideas for your 30-something coffee-addict. You know how in movies everybody moves around the city, the offices and the subway station carrying a cup of hot coffee? That’s in the movies, where nobody spills anything, except if you’re in a Ben Stiller comedy. So do your 3- year old friend a favor, and get him or her a professional travel mug as present.
This portable charger is the ideal gift for a 30-something fashionista who is addicted to her smartphone or tablet. The Despicable Me 2 Lipstick Taser can extend her talk time by 9 hours, and music time by 90 hours. Thus, she can be sure she will never run low on battery, and stay connected and updated all day. This little dangerous stun gun comes with a flashlight, just to ease her way into the house at night, or should she lose her keys in the purse. The Lipstick Taser might be one of the best 30th birthday gift ideas for her.
Sometimes, video games, board games, and dinner party games to play without a board can get quite dull from time. That’s why we have something to surprise your playful 30-something buddy. Moreover, you can consider it a present you can all enjoy while visiting. This electronic dartboard is ideal for playing with friends. It features a bright LCD display that clearly shows the scores and statistics. The playing surface is very durable, and the design is modern, so you will all enjoy an enhanced play experience.
42. Bartender Kit
We’re in our 30-something age of glory. We drink responsibly and we have class. So maybe one of the best gifts for 30-year old friends is a bartender kit to mix their own late night cocktails. Help them entertain a fabulous party with the rest of you. Add a cocktail recipes book and they will keep on mixing margaritas until the morning comes. While this present can work well for some ladies, it is actually a thoughtful gift for a 30-something man.
Speaking of cocktails, we’re not in college anymore. So, we may resent the last tequila shot we were ambitious enough to push down our throats. And let’s face it, even if wisdom comes with age, our livers aren’t getting any younger. So if you have friends who like to party, but are not very fond of the next morning’s sickness (or very resistant to it), this is something they will be thankful for. The Hangover Guardian is a great gift for many people in their 30s who still party a lot. It also really helps.
