You may think that books are a tad boring for a 30th birthday gift idea but do not underestimate their value in boosting the morale of the birthday boy or girl! Some books out there are specifically targeted to people turning 30 and who are really at the crossroads of their lives. Many of us make major decisions that determine how we will spend the rest of our lives at that age. Perhaps one of these books is the 30th birthday gift idea that will inspire your best friend to make the right decisions. Who knows?

Thirty Things to Do When You Turn Thirty


When you turn thirty, you suddenly become more health conscious. As the middle-age edges in on you and youth ebbs away, your weight and excess belly fat suddenly become more oppressive. Many of us choose to embark on drastic health improvement programs after our 30th birthdays. It is therefore a thoughful 30th birthday gift (and an intelligent one, if you want to nudge your friend in the right direction!) to present them with scales to monitor their weight loss progress.

Jewelry is another great 30th birthday present that you might consider. If the birthday boy or girl is someone really special (like a husband or wife or close family member), then pieces of jewelry are really the ideal gift. Jewelry is a long-term gift. Most good-quality jewelry lasts a lifetime and makes excellent mementos. As birthday gifts for women, necklaces are certainly the most valued. A great necklace will bring a smile to her face in a jiffy. You might also go for a nice ring.
