Unique Gifts for Men in Their 30s

Finding unique gifts for a 30-year-old man is a notoriously difficult task. Sure, they probably don’t have any decent towels or more than three forks that aren’t plastic, but domestic practical gifts for men in their 30s are too boring for special-occasion gift giving. 

There’s nothing boring about our list of gifts for men in their 30s. The only difficult part of this list is deciding which items to buy for yourself. 

Nitro Cold Brew Coffee Maker

Every grown man needs to know how to make great coffee at home — and have the means to do it. 

A GrowlerWerks uKeg Nitro Cold Brew Coffee maker is one of the best gift ideas for a 30-year-old man because A) It looks super cool and B) It makes amazing cold brew coffee. 

The uKeg brews and infuses nitro cold brew for a fraction of what it costs at his favorite coffee shop. It creates a smooth texture and adds a head or foam similar to beer and it tastes delicious. It has a massive 12-cup capacity (in case he’s worried about size) and comes with a full year of technical support (in case he’s not as tech-savvy as he pretends to be).

Booze and Vinyl

Gifts for men in their 30s don’t get much better than Booze & Vinyl. I have bought it numerous times for people. Let’s say goodbye to the man cave and hello to the sophisticated collaboration of music and cocktails with this book that combines cocktail recipes meant to complement certain types of music and explains why that cocktail fits. It’s a great book to use while hanging out with friends and listening to music. 

No matter what kind of music he likes, this guide will enhance his listening experience with suggestions for the perfect sip. Be sure to buy the hard cover version because it looks like a fancy coffee table book.

Personalized Leather Duffel Travel Bag

We highly recommend this leather duffel as one of the best gifts for a 30-year-old man who travels a lot. Boarding an airplane with a carry-on bag has become almost impossible these days. 

This Personalized Duffel Travel Bag will fit easily under an airplane seat, so he’ll never have to worry about checking it. It’s large enough to hold weekend essentials, and it’s absolutely stylish in full-grain leather. Monogram his initials on it for that high-end touch.

Whiskey Stones Gift Set

Whiskey stones let you enjoy your favorite chilled beverage’s rich, full flavor without watering it down with ice. This set makes one of the best gifts for a 30-year-old man who likes to enjoy their beverages in their man cave.

This Whiskey Stone Set includes eight stones and so much more. It’s practically a mini-bar in a box. With this gift, he’ll get two rocks glasses, two coasters, ice tongs, and a stack of cocktail recipe cards — all in a handsome gift box. Other styles are also available.

Personalized Steak Branding Iron

If the guy in your life loves to grill, get him a Personalized Steak Branding Iron, and get ready for the meat-a-thon to begin. Heck, he might even cook up some zucchini too, just for the chance to see his name seared into it. 

He can also use the miniature branding iron for wood, leather crafting, and cakes.

NOTE: This item sells out constantly, so if it isn’t available on the link below, try this one on Amazon.

Ballsy Ball Wash

Yeah, it’s exactly what you thought it might be. You’d have to be nuts to pass up the chance to buy the Ballsy Nuts About You Sack Pack. His plums will be fresh as daisies with the foaming Ballwash, odor neutralizing Sack Spray, and a dab of Nut Job solid cologne. 

What more can we say about this “incrediball” gift for a 30-year-old man? It’s formulated to be gentle on old tom and harry, even though — of course — his are made of steel.

Cocktail Smoker

Put this one on the list of classiest gift ideas for men in their 30s. Stay with us now, because the name might not be that manly, but the Busy Bee Cocktail Smoker is indeed a manly gift. 

The set comes complete with a smoker, a torch, whiskey stones, and wood chips so he can make some seriously grown-up gourmet cocktails at his seriously grown-up home bar.

1,000 Places to See Before You Die

When choosing 30th birthday gifts for him, you should include at least one “Dude, you’re old and going to die soon” item. 1,000 Places to See Before You Die is more than just a witty gift — it’s a collection of some of the most amazing places on earth. And in order to see all of them, he better start now.

With 600 beautiful full-color photos, festivals, historic hotels, and unique restaurants, it’s sure to inspire his wanderlust. Of course, it also pokes fun at the fact that he’s getting older.

Personalized Etched Birthday Whiskey Glass

What better way to celebrate a milestone birthday than with an etched Whiskey Rocks Glass with his birth year on it? It’s a gift for the 30-year-old man that conveys maturity, a certain swagger, and of course… whiskey! 

Each of these clear rocks glasses holds 10.25 ounces and is proudly made in the USA. You can add his name or a short personal message for engraving. Sure, the one in the picture says “47 years”, but you can fully customize it to say anything you want.

Insulated Driver Drink Dispenser

Don’t worry, we’re not advocating drinking and driving an automobile. We’re talking about drinking from a Driver Drink Dispenser. It’s the perfect way to stay hydrated on the green! 

This insulated cooler tank looks like an ordinary golf club and fits easily into your bag, but it holds 48-oz. of your favorite hot or cold beverage. Bring beer, water, coffee, iced tea, whiskey, or whatever, without the need for carrying bottles or cans on the course. And it makes it easy to sneak a little booze when you need to.
