Men and women in their 30s are so much fun to buy for. They don't yet have it all, so there are so many options available to find the ideal gift. Also 30-year-olds are usually very active and full of life, often involved in multiple activities and interests.

Food items are also favorite gifts for the 30-year-old male ...

Some gifts would work for either a man or a woman; such as a magazine subscription or a gift certificate to a new restaurant. An ideal gift for a 30-year-old man might be a gift certificate to a home improvement or sporting goods store. Food items are also favorite gifts for the 30-year-old male and these can include restaurant or coffee bar gift cards, gourmet food basket, or even a fresh fruit basket.

Another ideal gift for any 30-year-old is one that involves learning or experiencing something new.

Another ideal gift for any 30-year-old is one that involves learning or experiencing something new. People in this age group are eager to try new things and then relate that experience to others. They are all about gaining life experiences and checking off milestones on their mental lists. Some learning gifts could include enrollment in some type of class. This could be a sports related class like kayak or tennis lessons, or a glass-blowing or painting class. As an alternative to signing them up for a class, you could give them a book on the subject or a kit for learning to knit or a video tape on how to play guitar.

Gifts for 30-year-olds do not have to be expensive. In fact, many of these gifts are low cost or free. Why not schedule a free tour of a local sports stadium or brewery? Find out what some of the local attractions are in your area, and see if they offer free tours or volunteer opportunities.

Arrange for your 30-year-old to volunteer for a day at the local zoo or help to build trails at a local park. This would be ideal for someone who wants to help the community while learning a new skill. A foreign language learning course is another option, as your 30-year-old gift recipient may be interested in foreign travel, and this will help them achieve that goal.

For a 30-year-old man who loves participating in sports, an ideal gift would be sports equipment. This would, of course, have to be specific to the sports he is interested in, but could include tennis balls, golf balls, or if he is a cyclist, a special water bottle, bike bag or even a certificate for a bike maintenance workshop.

If he is more of a spectator when it comes to sports, something ideal to give him would be tickets to a sporting event, a jersey or ball cap, or historical memorabilia from his favorite sports team. Another possible gift for a young man who loves sports is a universal remote control - so he can quickly change channels to keep up with multiple sporting events.

An ideal gift for a 30-year-old who is on the go is a gift card to Starbucks, or a travel coffee mug for the car. Anything that can be used while in the car would be appreciated including a car organizer, sunglass visor clip, or car cooler. Help encourage safety for the 30-year-old driver by giving some hands-free cell phone accessories. A gift card for ITunes music is also a great way to give them great music they can choose themselves.

Many women in their 30s find their creative sides emerging. An ideal gift for a 30-year-old crafty woman would be scrapbooking supplies, especially organizing equipment such as a rolling cart or portable scrapbooking portfolio to carry all of her supplies.

... sporty 30-year-old include a gym bag, MP3 player or stainless steel water bottle.

If she is interested in art, a certificate for an art class or art supplies would be in order. For women who are interested in exercise and sports, a gift certificate for a dance or Pilates class would be ideal. This is something both active and feminine that she will certainly enjoy. Additional gifts for the sporty 30-year-old include a gym bag, MP3 player or stainless steel water bottle. A gift certificate for a massage also makes an ideal gift for relaxing after a tough workout. She might also enjoy a trip to the spa for a pedicure or manicure.

... vintage rocker t-shirt.

For the music-loving 30-year-old an ideal gift would be concert tickets or a vintage rocker t-shirt. For the true musician, give a gift of sheet music, a selection of guitar picks, or a digital guitar tuner. A gift-boxed set of music CDs of their favorite musical group or band would be sure to please any music lover.
