Choosing a 30th birthday gift for your girlfriend or wife isn’t the easiest task. It’s an age that is associated with full maturity, but of course, you don’t want to suggest that she doesn’t still have that youthful spark. Of course, you need to consider her interests, passions and personal style when selecting a present. Still, you’ll also need to show your appreciation for her as a person. Whether or not she’ll admit it, her birthday means a lot to her – and meeting her expectations doesn’t necessarily mean emptying your wallet. It does, however, demand that you put some thought into what will make her feel loved.
Here are five suggestions that will surely make her 30th birthday extra special:
A Day of Pampering
She works hard, so she deserves a full afternoon of relaxation and rejuvenation. Consider booking her a few luxurious treatments at a top local spa, such as a massage or scrub and a facial. If you’re unsure about her schedule, you could also get her a gift card to the facility. That way, she can also pick and choose the services herself. Either way, this is a great option to show that you care about her well-being.
Treats for Your Sweetheart
Naturally, you could get a box of 30 chocolates – but you probably want to go with something a little more creative. Take her to a restaurant that specializes in desserts for an indulgent evening that beats any traditional birthday cake. To make the occasion even more special, you could print out 30 famous – or lesser-known – love poems into a book for her and present it with your decadent dessert sampling.
A Birthday Bouquet
Flowers are a fitting idea for her birthday, but you should put some thought into precisely which blossoms you choose. A classic combination of pink roses, Gerbera daisies and alstroemeria look lovely together, especially with a festive balloon attached. Consider a bouquet that comes in a chic vase, which she can reuse after the blossoms have wilted. Or, for an especially elegant recipient, consider an arrangement with asiatic lilies and cymbidium orchids among tropical leaves and grasses. Especially when presented in a modern dish, these exotic flowers are the perfect choice for someone with refined tastes and a touch of eccentricity.
A Romantic Trip
Sometimes a weekend getaway is the best gift of all – it offers you the chance to take a break from everyday monotony and make new memories together. You don’t have to go far, either, if your work life or budget doesn’t permit it. Even booking a couple nights for a staycation at a local bed and breakfast is enough to breathe new life into your relationship.
Jewelry is always an ideal option for your special lady, but you might consider a piece that reflects this milestone in her life. For example, a necklace with three linked sterling silver or hammered gold rings or a triple layered ring are both stunning ideas that would suit nearly any woman’s tastes, and are also versatile enough to wear with a variety of other accessories.
