30th Birthday Present Idea

It’s about that time… my girl friends that are close in age are starting to hit the BIG 30!!! The first one turned 30 yesterday so I scoured Pinterest for a fun idea to help her celebrate this milestone birthday. I loved this Young at Heart turning 30 basket from Girl Grows Up, so I hit the stores to make my own version. You can see another spin on it from Loves of Life here.

I purchased a cute basket to contain all her birthday goodies, wrapped it in ribbon and labeled it with the young at heart saying…

“Kayce, now that you’re 30 you may be wondering where the years went. Well this emergency kit is filled with items to keep you feeling young at heart!”

Then I made a little label to match each little goodie inside. I even uploaded the printable if you’re in a hurry and don’t want to create one yourself. Just be sure to edit the name to that of your recipient. 😉

30th Birthday Gift Idea

Take a Bubble Bath – I attached it to a bottle of fancy bubble bath.
Play Dress Up – Hoop earrings and a pretty bracelet
Have a Slumber Party – That’s a pretty little satin nighty rolled into a ball and wrapped with ribbon. 😉
Drink from a Sippy Cup – How cool is the wine “glass” with a straw that I found! You could do any kind of cup with a straw though.
Draw a Picture – A cute journal.
Give Yourself a Makeover – I wrapped ribbon around a set of different lip glosses and nail polish.

Gotta say, if I were turning thirty, or any other milestone birthday, I would be thrilled to get something like this…. 😉 Hint, hint… Not that my birthday is anytime soon.

How have you celebrated your milestone birthdays? Best gift received??

      That’s what I thought! Something fun to celebrate the big 30 instead of feel bad for it! haha. Thanks for visiting Camille!

  8. I love this idea! I’m looking for an idea for my stepdaughter’s 30th. This sounds perfect!
    For my husband’s 46th (I know, an odd year, but I’d just discovered Pinterest) I made him a memory/photo book. I asked family and friends to send me a favorite memory and photo they had of him. I took them and made a photo book out it. I’m glad I did it that year and didn’t wait because we lost his dad the following year. To have his dad’s favorite memories in the book is a priceless gift. The book Is my husband’s favorite gift I’ve ever given him.
