We’re all getting older, that’s a fact. Nothing brings this to light more than the dreaded 30th birthday. However, no one says that your guy’s 30th birthday has to be a depressing and somber affair.
In fact, this milestone needs to be celebrated larger and bigger than any other birthday that came before it. Instead of sticking with the usual gift card inside a Hallmark for his 30th, make this one fun and interesting with these 30th birthday ideas.
1. Go on a roadtrip.
This birthday celebration is all about having fun and reminding your significant other that he still has a lot of his youth left. Few things are as exciting and spontaneous as taking an impromptu roadtrip. Spend the day seeing new things.
2. Start checking things off of their bucket list.
If either one of you don’t have a bucket list, the 30th birthday is the time to make one. While death isn’t exactly the happiest thing to think about, bucket lists are still fun!
Everyone has goals that they want to accomplish. Figure out what these goals are, go out there, and help your significant other accomplish them! Crossing these things off the list can be an extremely entertaining and satisfying experience.
3. Do a photo shoot.
Be honest, when was the last time you and your significant other took some nice, professional pictures? The 30th birthday is a monumental occasion! Grab a photographically-inclined friend and spend an afternoon taking some fun pictures to commemorate the occasion.
4. Make him a mix CD.
It’s time to get a little nostalgic. Everyone loves mix CDs. When done right, they can be one of the most thoughtful gifts out there. A fun thing to do is research some of the more popular songs that have come out each year since your significant other was born. Take him on a nostalgic trip like no other.
5. 30 gifts to celebrate 30 years.
This is going to require a little bit of help, but this is also a fantastic idea for a birthday celebration. Get your mutual friends, coworkers, family, and the rest to give your significant other just one present. Depending on how big and close your network is, it shouldn’t be extremely difficult to rack up 30 gifts. Your significant other is going to have a great time unwrapping all 30 gifts.
So, as 30 draws nearer, remember that experiences start to become more meaningful than things. Experiences don’t have to be expensive. In this situation, it really is the thought that counts.
Make his 30th birthday a day of fun instead of a day of dread.
