40. Hobbit Slippers
We all have a friend who is in his thirties and lives a Bilbo life, enjoying good food and relaxation, not worrying about anything, and not taking unnecessary risks. It is the Zen guy in the bunch, always having a good story to tell – about others – who gets bored in the sweetest, most non-adventurous and pleasant ways of getting bored. Two words for this 30-something guy: Hobbit Slippers. That can crack up even the chillest person around. Everybody knows he’s a Hobbit, so make sure you prepare him for his biggest life adventure. Even if it’s a picnic in the park. The Hobbit Slippers make one of the most creative 30th birthday gift ideas for him.
Ask any 30-something old, and they will tell you they want two things in this life: buy time and relieve stress. While the time business is rather complicated, let’s try buying them some sleep. They really seem to lack the good old resting days a few years back, when napping in the afternoon was a hobby, and not a necessity. Acupuncture and technology, all in one little sleeping bracelet that seems to put people to sleep quite fast. Worthy of a shot, especially for those guys in their 30s complaining of insomnia, and not hooked on five types of prescription drugs already.
38. Sushi Maker
Do you have some single 30-something year old friends? We all do, at least one. So let’s help them out, and ease their way into the dating jungle. This is a sushi maker, and it works brilliantly, especially for those friends of yours who want to invite a potential partner to dinner at their house. Many don’t know what to cook, how to cook or just barely made it home from the office to take a shower. This is a unique tool for those who need to impress a date, and look like they cooked all day. Sushi ingredients are all over the place, but it takes skill to roll them. This gadget rolls them restaurant-like! So, instead of spending two hours in the kitchen, why not help them spend 20 minutes, and have enough time to get ready? A guy making sushi for his date? Marriage potential right there!
Puffy Eyeeees…. that’s the morning tune, every morning, for both men and women in their 30s. They either work too much, sleep too little, or just are cursed with every hour of poor rest showing on their faces. Puffiness and dark circles around peoples’ eyes are quite disturbing to their self esteem, so why not giving them a hand? This one seems to work well, and reduces puffiness in just a few minutes. It is the perfect present for 30-something men and women who care about their looks.
36. Wine Absorbent Coasters and Wine Bottles
Among our birthday gift ideas for 30-something year-olds we also have one for that couple who has a bit of an obsession with their furniture, carpets, household items or decorations. We all know them. They are on a verge of a breakdown whenever there is a party and somebody seems to carry negligently a glass of wine around the living – room. It’s the “Don’t touch anything” and “If you break it, you buy it” and “I”m still paying for that beige couch!” type of people. So for their piece of mind, get them design square coasters, and wine. Just don’t spill it nowhere near their designer rug. This is one of the best gift ideas for 30-something couples who recently bought a house.
Now it’s not like in our thirties we get senile. We just become selective with the people around us. So one of the best and funniest gifts for 30 year old friends (who are a bit more hooked to social media than healthy) is this senility social prayer ornament. They can look up to it every time they log on to the virtual world! It will remind them that time is precious when we are in our 30s!
Well, look at it this way: in our 30-something years, we managed to set course either for the pessimists’ heaven, or for the optimists’ hell. We all have friends who’d rather see it all black, and friends who are so optimistic, they need therapy whenever reality hits them in the face. So for either of them, this book makes an amazing gift. It balances both visions, and maybe will manage to educate these two extremists to change perspective before they reach 40.
This is the perfect gift for the men in their 30s who know how to grill. This apron has them all: 6 beer can holders, and pockets to satisfy even the most perfectionist barbeque man in the pack. Moreover, it comes in a neat camouflage design, and a few proud men even considered to take the apron while grocery shopping! This is the apron that can turn any man into Batman while he’s flipping burgers. Dreamlike!
Touchy subject, but this is why you are the best girlfriend ever, and the sister every woman on Earth would want. Because you are sick and tired of that female friend who cries her heart out three times a month because she forgot to take the pill. Again. It’s not that women in their 30-something years are not responsible. It’s that we all have at least one who just simply forgets. So for her sake and for yours, this little wonderful wallet with a timer is just what she needs to stay focused, and not skip the daily dose. It looks so great, that she can actually use it as a wallet or medication holder.
31. Car Escape Tool
This gift goes well for both men and women in their 30s. Yes, it is the type of present you pray nobody gets to use, but a life saver of many people. You might find the car escape tool appealing because you have a 30-something year old friend who likes to drive… in a certain way. Let’s not use the word reckless, nor dangerous, but you get the idea. Let’s say you have a friend that gives you shivers down your spine every time he or she starts the engine. So, car escape tools and life savers should be in anybody’s possession. Make this gift as a subtle way of telling them you’re a concerned individual and a caring friend.
