Turning 30 – A Gift Guide for Men

Turning 30 – A Gift Guide for Men

This year Hubs is going to be 30.  The big 3-0!  He and I have never been much good when it comes to present buying, often not bothering at all.  It’s not everyday one of my favourite humans turns 30 though, so this year I’ve put some real thought into what I’m going to buy him!

Since having children we think very little about what we might want or need.  Often opting to buy the children yet more toys, instead of replenishing our wardrobes or treating ourselves to the latest gadget.  But seeing as it’s a special occasion, I intend to go all out to make sure he has a 30th birthday to remember!

As I’m sure most of you will agree when spending our cash, a bargain is always welcome!  So I’ve spent some time researching the ideal presents at prices you will love.  With a little help from LovetheSales, here are my top 5 gifts for men:

1. A New Pair of Headphones

Since Hubs went back to university late last year, he spends a lot of time working on his laptop.  He does not however have headphones of his own and so is constantly using my very girly purple ones!  This is a practical yet perfect present that I know he will love.  I found this wireless, noise-cancelling Philips set, great for when you have two little ones running around!

2. A Watch

Hubs isn’t allowed to wear a watch at work.  So when we go out it’s nice for him to be able to wear a fancy time piece!  His current watch is one that I bought him many moons ago, it’s definitely time for an upgrade.  I’m a huge lover of watches so searching for this one has been a real treat!  I absolutely adore this Armani Exchange piece.

3. A Shaving Kit

Who says that men don’t like to pamper themselves too?  Hub’s has always been the clean-shaven type, but with very early starts the whole shaving routine becomes a bit of a bind.  This is ideal for him to look fresh and ready for work, even at 4am!  This neat little set even has a screen with the length setting clearly visible.

4. A Smart Jacket

Now, having two under two means that nights out every weekend are a thing of the past.  Nevertheless when we do make it out onto the town, Hubs always likes to look smart.   A new jacket just had to be on the list.  Who knows, maybe I’ll get a date night out of this one too!  I love the look and colour of this GAP jacket.

5. Socks!

It just wouldn’t be a birthday if Hubs didn’t get socks.   Since we have a mysterious sock thief in our house, who only seems to take one from each pair, new socks are always a welcome gift.  This great Jack & Jones set does the job whilst being a bit fun too!

£7.00 reduced from £12.00


I’m so excited to see Hubs’ face when I hand over all of his presents, I’m definitely in for some brownie points.  On a soppy note, he’s the perfect husband and Father and works so hard to provide for us all.  He deserves a day being spoilt from start to finish!
