Great Gifts For The Big 3-0

Turning 30 is a big milestone, and it’s a great way to show just how much you care by giving a heartfelt gift.

It can be tricky though, finding just the right gift for someone who’s in that stage of their life. If you’re reading this, chances are that you’re looking for inspiration - with that in mind, here are some 30th birthday gift ideas that we’re sure will go down well.

1. A trip somewhere amazing

First up, why not give a trip to remember? This could be a dream vacation to a warm Mediterranean island, an adventure in the French Alps, or a trip to a city that you know they’ve wanted to visit for years and years. It's a great way to celebrate this special milestone, and if you go on the trip together, a wonderful chance to create incredible memories together.

2. A luxurious spa day

Getting to the end of your 20s can be a tiring and stressful experience - as a result, a luxurious spa day is a great way to pamper someone who’s turning 30.

Give them a day of relaxation and rejuvenation with a massage, facial, or other spa treatments - whatever you think they’d enjoy. It's a great way to help them unwind, and you might even be able to tag along yourself.

3. A piece of jewellery

A piece of jewellery can be a lovely gift idea for someone who just turned 30. It’s a great way of marking the occasion with something ornate and special, and it’ll be a gift that they can keep for years to come.

Jewellery purchases can depend on how much you can afford but even well known brands like Tiffany's and Cartier have fabulous entry level products that have been on their collection for years, making them timeless!

When opting for jewellery, it's essential to consider the maintenance and care of the pieces. For those curious about sterling silver, a common material in jewellery, understanding why does sterling silver tarnish can help in preserving the sparkle and beauty of your gift over time. Sterling silver's tendency to tarnish is a natural process, but with proper care, it can continue to shine for years.

4. A personalised gift

Personalised gifts are always a great idea, and a personalised gift is also a wonderful way to celebrate someone turning 30.

It could be a piece of jewellery, a custom-made piece of art, or even a personalised photo album that captures special memories you shared together from their 20s. My favourite place for personalised gifts is always

5. A new hobby

If you know that they’re looking for something else in life, then give them the gift of a new hobby, whether it’s a cooking class, a photography workshop, or a masterclass in pottery.

It's a great way to encourage them to try something new and expand their interests, which might be just what they need at this stage in their life.

I recently got gifted a 'beginner's Yoga' 4-week course with one weekly session of Yoga. The cost was around £65 and I am now a Yoga convert!

6. A book or a collection of books

Finally, if they’re a big reader (or if they wish that they were a big reader,) then give them the gift of a special book or a collection of books that you know they’ve always wanted to read. Or if you know they have a favourite author, you could try and find a signed edition!

It's a thoughtful gift that they can enjoy for years to come, and it might inspire them to take a little more much-needed downtime.


As we all know, turning 30 is a big milestone, and it’s a wonderful opportunity to celebrate with a special gift. A trip of a lifetime, a luxurious spa day, a piece of jewellery, a personalised gift, a new hobby, or a special book are all great options that are sure to be cherished for a long time to come.
