Looking for a last minute 30th birthday gift for him? Stuck for ideas? Don't worry, we got you! Here's a list of 30th birthday gift ideas that are sure to be a hit. We guarantee your gift giving will be stress free and fast with this extensive list of men's presents.

30th Birthday Gift for the foodie?

Looking for something a little different? How about an Afternoon Cheese Tasting experience on a solid 96ft double decker barge? Moored on the Regent's Canal serving - cheese! In fact they do ring the changes with the odd Braised beef shin risotto (with fresh goat’s curd) but really their grilled cheese sarnies and cheese boards are the main event. It’s just the best way to watch the world and the ducks go by.

The best way to check out this floating cheese palace is to forgo cakes and tea and sit down to  an ‘Afternoon Cheese tasting for Two’. This comprises a platter of 6 different British cheeses, each with individual condiment pairings, a carafe of house wine (red or white), alongside crackers and sourdough. Vegetarian and GF available when you arrive.

How about an unusually fun 30th birthday experience?

Surprise someone with a Neon Workshop experience! They'll be taken in by the beautiful glow and colour of this vibrant material as it lights up the entire workshop.

Learn how to make neon as you assist our talented glassblowers. By the end of the day, you will take home a piece of neon that you have designed and helped make! The maximum size is anything that can be made from a 1.5m piece of glass. Expect mesmerising demonstrations of cutting, blowing, stretching and fusing. Blow lamps will be provided.

30th Birthday gift experiences for him and for her

Get inspired by the world around you, and take your very own terrarium home. This workshop will show you how to design, plant and sustain a miniature biosphere. It's the perfect 30th birthday gift idea for him or her, and even better together!
