Funny birthday gifts can be a refreshing and lighthearted way to mark the recipient's 30th year. Laughter can alleviate any negative thoughts about getting older and bring people together in a way that many other things cannot. If you want to give the birthday boy a laugh on his 30th birthday, try a funny birthday gift.

Inflatable Spouse

A funny birthday gift for the 30-year-old still-bachelor is a blow-up spouse. Poke fun at his refusal to commit with an inflatable doll, touting its benefits such as "a great listener", "won't max out your credit card" or "always faithful." Until he is ready to settle down, an inflatable companion will be a source of laughs and silliness.

"Over the Hill" Gifts

For some people, turning 30 marks the end of youth and the slow descent into middle age. Give the birthday girl a laugh at her own dramatic thoughts with a cane, walker or other assistive device that will make her forget her age and remind her that she is still young and full of life. A wheelchair, fake death certificate, coffin replica or package of adult diapers will also bring a good laugh.

Backwards-turning Clock

Let the birthday boy turn back the hands of time with a clock that turns counterclockwise. Unfortunately, no one ever gets any younger, but a backwards-turning clock is a funny gift and will make an eye-catching conversation piece for any home or office.

Funny T-shirt

For a 30th birthday, there are myriad humorous T-shirts. Buy shirts that say things like "Established 1980", "30: I Demand a Recount" or "It took 30 years to look this good". Silly, wacky T-shirts may not ever be worn, but they're a way to lighten the birthday girl's mood about turning 30.

Personalised Magazine Cover

Create a personalised magazine cover. For a funny 30th birthday gift, you can decorate your cover with top-10 lists, photos of the birthday celebrant, humorous facts, and a happy-birthday message. Pick a funny background to complete the cover. A personalised magazine cover makes a funny coffee-table or conversation piece as well.
