In the 1960s, hitting that 30th birthday was considered "over the hill" and out of touch. Today, with seniors living long active lives, a 30th birthday signals a new decade, new challenges and opportunities. Many in their 30s are just hitting their stride and life is still mainly ahead, not behind them. Thirtieth birthday gifts should reflect women in the prime of their lives.

At 30, a woman may be re-evaluating her life and life choices. She may be considering changes. You can help her as she evaluates by signing her up for a day at a spa. Be sure to sound out her, or other friends who know her best, about what she would or would not like at a spa. Not everyone may want the full treatment. She may want only a manicure or pedicure. Give her a relaxing day of treatments and a massage. You can make it a surprise by planning a girl's day out for the two of you and, instead, take her to the spa where you inform your friend her 30th birthday gift is a day at the spa. Pick her up when treatments are finished and take her out to dinner.
Give a 30-year-old girl the gift of a week or weekend away at a resort for two.

If your friend plans to get away for her 30th birthday, find out where she plans to vacation and give her the gift of leisure clothes for her vacation.

Many girls enjoy wearing jewellery. Some like fun pieces while others like understated elegance. Some women prefer silver jewellery. Others prefer gold. Some jewellery combines both looks.

Choose an arm or ankle bracelet, necklace, earrings, ring or a pin. Giving jewellery with your friend's birthstone might be just the thing to help your 30-year-old friend recall positive memories of her 30th birthday.
If your friend has certain interests, consider getting her a subscription to a magazine catering to those with a similar interest. If she likes to jog, give her "Runner's World." If she fancies cats, give her "Cat Fancy" magazine. If she likes to hike and climb give "Backpacker Magazine." For a girl's 30th birthday, give the gift of what she likes best.
