A man's 30th birthday is a turning point in his life. For most 30-year-old men, it is the time when he has taken on more responsibility, such as marriage, raising a family and running a household. However, turning 30 is nowhere near older birthday milestones and the gifts you give to men on this occasion should remind them that there is still a long road of life ahead.

A night on the town

Just because the man on the birthday present list is getting older, it does not mean that he cannot enjoy a night out on the town. Tickets to sporting events -- whatever sport he is a fan of -- could be a birthday present from his male friends or male relatives. A pub crawl and survey of nightclubs could follow the sporting event. The man's girlfriend or wife can take him out on the town for dinner, a film and dancing.

A mini-break

Everyone needs an occasional change of scenery, and there is no better time to get away than to celebrate a birthday.
