30th Birthday Gifts, Ideas and Presents

What do you get for someone who is 30 years old? It's such an in-between age.

Are they a bit ground down with careers, children and a mortgage and in need of a little pampering or escape from the daily grind?

Or are they still on the loose, travelling and playing with life? Thinking about settling down?

Here are some of Australia's best online retailers with gifts suitable for 30 year olds.

  • Caricature King – unique gifts made from a photo of the birthday person to mark the occasion. Digital caricatures from under $40, poster print or print and framing options.
  • AFL Footy Shop has lots of gifts for AFL fans. You’ll find Official AFL Merchandise Products for all 18 teams including clothing, officially licensed AFL Guernseys, footballs, quilt covers, throw rugs, beach towels, car accessories and much more. Gift vouchers too.
  • Yardgames – has some amazing chess sets, or encourage them to get outdoors and active with stylish croquet sets, giant dice and games.

Experience vouchers are popular for 30th birthdays, often the V8 drives, but there is a wide range to suit all sorts of tastes – everything from pamper, to cooking classes, getaways, horseriding, sailing, skydiving, bungy jumping and so on. If you choose an experience in Australia, be careful to choose one in the location of the recipient. Most experiences are in the capital cities.

Experience companies also offer general vouchers so you don’t have to decide what they’d like, and hampers as “experiences” these days for those people who receive an experience voucher but don’t want to do any of the activities in their local area.

  • Adrenalin – adventure and experience vouchers for Skydiving, V8 Race Cars, Rally Driving, Hot Air Ballooning, Jet Packs and more. They also have the option of some impressive gift hampers. Delivery Australia-wide.
