Birthday Gifts for Men over Age 30

Electronic gadgets and gizmos make great gifts for men over 30.

Getting older doesn’t have to be a drag, contrary to what the Beatles sang about aging. It’s all a state of mind. If you’re in need of a birthday gift for a man over the age of 30, luckily your choices now extend to more sophisticated items reflecting a mature—but not boring—lifestyle. To help in your selection, we’ve listed four simple guidelines to consider when selecting a guy’s birthday gift:


Support his favorite hobby

The birthday boy will love that you understand and support a hobby he’s passionate about. Does he play golf? How about personalized golf balls? Or new camping gear if he loves the great outdoors. Men over 30, are usually conscious about maintaining their physiques. Long hours behind a corporate desk can take its toll. Perhaps equipment for a home work out or a fitness tracker so he can keep progress of his goals.


Indulge his favorite (legal) vice

Many men over age 30 have developed a taste for cigars, scotch, wine or beer. For this birthday, sign him up for an “of-the-month” club and have a selection delivered directly to his doorstep.


Get techy

Is he an early adopter always showing off the latest tech toy? Electronic gadgets and gizmos such as tablets (check to see that he doesn’t already have one) and noise reduction headphones make awesome gifts for men.


Embrace the testosterone

Just because the man is over 30 doesn’t mean he still isn’t the daredevil he was when younger. Does the dude have a desire to be a fighter pilot for a day or ride shotgun in a stock car? Giving him an experiential birthday gift will ensure that he remembers his day for years to come.
