Birthdays are a fun time to celebrate the one you love. If you need help brainstorming gifts for your husband’s 30th birthday, this list includes everything you could want. From funny gifts that will make him feel like a kid again to gifts that make him feel he’s aged like a fine wine, these 25 gifts give you all you need.
This gift is thoughtful and classic, something your husband will treasure forever. Customize the front page of a newspaper with your husband’s name and photo, plus tell the seller his birth date and place. The final paper includes information about what happened in the year and place your dear hubby was born. Choose from five different sizes to get what you want.
Who doesn’t love bobbleheads? Your husband will love having a small version of himself on his desk or dashboard. Supply a few photos of your loved one and get a durable custom bobblehead made of polymer clay. In addition to personalizing the face, you can also help design his pose and outfit to ensure you show your husband how he looks in your eyes.
Your husband is now 30 but still a kid at heart! This LEGO ship in a bottle bridges the gaps between both worlds. It’s as fun to construct as childhood LEGO sets, but it results in a stunning decoration he can display on his desk or the fireplace mantle. It has many realistic details, including a LEGO cork and wax seal.
Rugged and Dapper is one of the best brands in men’s skincare, featured in GQ, Men’s Journal, AskMen, and more. The lotion boosts your husband’s collagen and elastin to eliminate those fine lines and wrinkles he’s more likely to develop now that he’s 30.
There’s no greasy residue thanks to the all-natural ingredients, which include:
- Aloe vera
- Green tea
- Hyaluronic acid
- Jojoba oil
- Shea butter
- Vitamin E
Despite those ingredients, the lotion is unscented, so he can still wear his favorite cologne without interference.
Getting older means you have more on your mind and more to remember. When you give your husband the Five Minute Journal, you encourage him to make time for himself. This journal promotes reflection and mindfulness. And before you scroll by, thinking your husband isn’t the type to keep a journal, peek at what’s inside.
This journal is more like an interactive workbook. Each day, your husband will set aside five minutes and write out his goals for the day and week, reflect on an inspirational quote, and share gratitude for his life. Since it’s updated, he can start anytime.
This stunning wooden watch has a tree of life in the center and runs around the edges. The face is clear with bold black ink, making it simple to read the analog watch. It comes in a golden or rich brown finish, so you can choose what suits your husband’s style. It comes on a pillow in a wooden gift box, so you don’t have to wrap it to make it stand out. It is not only a thoughtful gift but also very practical, and you won’t have to worry about collecting dust on the shelf as he will need it for everyday life.
Now that your husband is 30, he should accelerate his activity and track his health. A Fitbit is the perfect solution. This watch will track his heart rate, calorie burn, and steps. It compiles stats from multiple exercise modes, including running, biking, and swimming. It also documents his sleep so he can see trends in his REM stages.
Beyond fitness, this Fitbit syncs with Bluetooth so that he can get weather alerts, app notifications, and texts on his wrist.
While your husband may exercise more after turning 30, he deserves to kick back in comfort and style. This reclining stadium seat folds down, so it’s easy for him to carry when going to games with his buddies. It provides a seat on bleacher benches and comforts the flat stadium seats. It has sturdy armrests and a cup holder so he doesn’t have to reach for his drink.
Your husband probably wants to dress nice on his birthday, but if you give him personalized birthday socks, he can hide some whimsy as he goes about his day. The socks include a photo of your husband’s face, so choose a good one! You can also choose the primary color of the socks to ensure they’re something he’ll wear and enjoy, even just for a laugh.
If your husband is a beer drinker, this map is a unique gift idea. It’s a map of the United States he can hang in his man cave and save beer caps from around the country. There are spaces for 98 beer bottle caps so he can try several from the same state. The wooden map looks so cool that it’s even an excellent place for him to save his favorite caps, regardless of where they’re from.
The beer cap map makes great man cave decor, but you can further customize your husband’s space with a bar sign. These stunning signs use authentic whiskey barrel heads from the Kentucky Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey Distilleries. You can customize four lines of text, meaning you can keep it general for his man cave or include a special 30th birthday note.
A man cave is something with a quality bar setup. Ensure your husband has all the tools he needs with this five-piece cocktail bar shaker set. It comes with a 25-ounce shaker, double measuring jigger, stirrer, strainer, and ice tongs. Everything is stainless steel, making it look sleek and stunning. However, it’s all dishwasher safe, so cleanup is a breeze.
Consider also getting him the Tom Bullock bartender’s recipe book so he can try out every drink and tool in the set.
Making cocktails is one thing, but brewing custom beer is a fantastic hobby. Your husband will love this starter kit that includes everything needed to brew two gallons of beer. It takes just 30 minutes to mix up and is ready to drink in three to four weeks. Even if your husband has never made something like this, the step-by-step guide provides all the instructions.
While many beer-making kits are available, this is one of the best because the ingredients come from Coopers Brewery, so you know they get the job done.
Your husband doesn’t have to make his drink to put his name on it! These custom birthday whiskey labels are fun ways to make his birthday bar stand out from other parties. Choose his favorite brand and use that label as the foundation. You can add text and images to the label and apply it to the real thing.
Consider getting several if you want all the bottles at the bar to sport his name or face. You could also buy enough to send home bottles as party favors.
The Flaviar Spirits Club Membership is the gift that keeps giving. You buy the membership and get a custom gift card for your husband. He then chooses what spirits to try, delivered right to your home. You can choose three-month, one-year, or two-year memberships. The spirits come quarterly, so there’s always something new to enjoy.
With all these cocktail-making kits, spirits memberships, and custom-labeled whiskey bottles around, your husband needs a unique drink glass. Custom engraving on this whiskey glass will ensure he always reaches for it. Include the birthdate for the center of the glass and an explanation of how your man has now aged to perfection!
If you don’t get your husband this glass for his birthday, you could get a matching set for an anniversary with your wedding date engraved in the center.
Life’s too short for bad coffee, and after an evening enjoying beverages from his custom whiskey glass, your husband will want some robust and delicious coffee. There’s no need for barista skills with this sleek silver machine that includes an automatic milk frother. Easy-to-use buttons simplify the brewing process and help him make the coffee drink he needs daily.
Drink options include:
- Single shots
- Double shots
There’s no need to only focus on beverages—food is also a fun way to celebrate a birthday. This MasterPRO outdoor pizza oven is portable and simple to use, so you can make custom pizza in a fraction of the time it would take for delivery.
Since it’s portable, it includes a carry bag so your husband can take it anywhere. It also has a pizza stone, screen, and peel. While it’s great for pizza, he can also roast vegetables, bake bread, and sear meat because the temperature is easy to control.
No matter what he’s doing, your husband needs a soundtrack playing in the background. This wireless turntable is sleek and portable. He can connect it to external speakers, plug in headphones, or use Bluetooth for headphones or speakers. It also allows him to record songs from a record into an MP3 on the computer.
Best of all, this turntable uses sustainable materials. The platter is aluminum, and the record pad is regrind silicone. The base of the structure is bamboo for durability and a unique aesthetic.
This portable Bluetooth speaker from Ultimate Ears can link to any Bluetooth device, including the House of Marley wireless turntable! The speaker comes in four stunning colors: red, blue, black, and purple. It’s waterproof, so your husband can take it to the pool or listen to music in the shower without ruining the gift.
If your husband needs to remember where he leaves things, this wood phone docking station is a classy way to help him keep it together. The ash wood is sleek and attractive, with space for a smartphone, Apple Watch, Fitbit, and hooks for keys. There are notches to hang his watch, sunglasses and space in the back for his wallet, so everything he needs to leave the house is handy.
You can joke that you got him this gift because he’s so old that his eyesight is worsening, but it’s an amazing device. This smartphone screen magnifier has a foldable stand that holds his phone, Switch, or other device in place. The screen is at the exact location that makes everything on the device easier to see, whether he’s watching a movie or reading an ebook.

You can choose stickers featuring your husband, including a funny birthday caption, or step it up with an exciting background. Give them as party favors and wear them proudly!
You should buy this gift with other items from this list because it’s funny. The printed toilet paper is sure to make your husband laugh.
