30th Birthday Guy Gift Ideas

Shopping for a guy that has a lot or gets things himself is very hard.  I have know my husband for 12 years.  We have been married for 5 years. So it was hard to figure out something for him after knowing him for many years. My husband loves to get things for himself, so that never gives anyone a chance to get anything for him.   My husband also has a lot of things so I didn’t want to clutter up his space with more things that mean nothing.

As my husband was turning 30, I started thinking of things to get him. I started with looking around the house for things that needed to be fixed or changed. My husband’s electronic toothbrush has been acting up so there was one gift.   His alarm clock was also not great, so that was another idea.   I kept thinking about all the things that matter to him and that helped figure out many things for him.   When my ideas came together it was exciting to order and wrap the gifts up.   The key to getting gifts for someone special is knowing them and getting things that mean something to them.

Here is a list of things that I got my husband for his 30th birthday:

  1. bath sponges
  2. nail clippers
  3. his favorite chocolates
  4. zippo
  5. zippo fluid
  6. his favorite author’s new book
  7. Yankees pajama pants
  8. Yankees shirt
  9. garden flags (something for him)
  10. alarm clock
  11. electronic toothbrush
  12. car wash
  13. air freshers for the car
  14. coffee (dark)
  15. cigars
  16. electronic toothbrush replacements
  17. tools
  18. Superman series
  19. Bug Bunny dvd
  20. beer opener
  21. iPhone chargers


Hope this helps you create your own 30th birthday gift idea.


30th Birthday Bucket List

I will be 30 next year and as I am reflecting on the many things and places I have visited so far, it made me think about what else I would want to do.  On Pinterest I pin many different places that I want to visit as well as many things that I might want.   I wanted to come up with a list of things that can be done by the time I’m 30.   My other bucket list is more for traveling.

As I think about what I would want to do before I turn 30. Below is my bucket list of things that I wish or want to get done by the time I’m 30.

1. Ride in a hot air balloon

2. Run a 5k

3.  Declutter my things- clothes, books, papers

4. Get my drivers’s license

5. Visit a new waterfall

6. Organize my photos.

As the year goes by I will be adding things that I can by the time that I’m 30.  This bucket list is one that can be changed and fixed. These things are possible to accomplish. It is important that you create a list you will be able to complete because if you don’t then you will have a list that will never be finished.  Hope this inspires you to create your own bucket list.
