its my husbands 30th birthday in the next month and I wanted to do something special for him. I have no idea what I’m going to do! He doesn’t like to socialize so a birthday party is off the list. I’ve done the idea of getting him the amount of gifts to his age number last year (it was our first year of marriage and first time celebrating his birthday) sothats off the list. A trip is also off the list cause we took a trip not too long ago. Can somebody help me with ideas please!

Why is a trip off the list just because you went on one not long ago? You could have a weekend in a nearby city and use the whole weekend to celebrate. Book a nice hotel, make dinner reservations and whisk him away the morning of?

We went axe throwing for my fiance’s 30th, and then invited a bunch of friends out to a bar afterward. It was a lot of fun. My fiance also loves to go dart throwing, so maybe that’s another idea?

Does he like wine tasting or beer tasting? Are the two of you outdoorsy – you could take him hiking, kayaking, canoeing or rafting? Buy tickets to see a play or to a baseball game or other sporting event? There are lots of options, it just depends on what his interests are.

FH turned 30 back in March. I did a ‘birthday week’ for him during the week. It was a nice way to celebrate with just him for his 30th! We aren’t into throwing parties and our place can’t really accommodate one, and we can’t really travel due to our schedules.
Day 1: 30-minute couples massage at our favorite place
Day 2: Custom bakery birthday cake that had Level 30 on it with a PC mouse and fondant- he’s a gamer
Day 3: Level Up 30 tee shirt and pop-up birthday card
Day 4: New phone case and a bunch of chocolate- he loves candy
Day 5: I got tickets to our first date spot- a beautiful indoor/outdoor gardens. I also made reservations at the fancy lunch place on-site. Dessert was an entirely edible flower pot.

My husband is hard to shop for too. Totally get it! lol I’ve had better luck getting him experiences. He turned 37 this year and I realized it had been 10 years since he had been on the beach so I booked us 2 nights on the coast. The local speedway does things where you can give someone a chance to drive racecars, the zoo does animal encounters (most of the animals are confiscated pets and are rather used to people so may not be available everywhere), and so on.

If you don’t want to take a trip, what does he like to do? We did bowling for my husband’s birthday (it was the weekend before our wedding, so we couldn’t do anything big this year) because that’s what he wanted to do! We went to Axe throwing for another friend this year as well.
Do something that you two have always said “we should try that some day!”. Make this the day to do it!

Ridz : Does he have any hobbies or interests?
Is he a gamer? into cars? into music? outdoors?
Camping trip or new gear?
Tickets to a sports game or concery (even if the date is not on his birthday, you can give him tickets for a future date)
Do a day trip – are you near a beach? lake? national park? theme park? winery?
speed track experience ( my SO did one with dodge viper and hellcat he had SUCH a great time)

I’m thinking about booking a skydive for my husband’s 30th. I don’t/won’t go skydiving and he has never done it before and talks about it a lot. I think I’m going to try to find a friend that wants to do it with him, but I’m keeping it a surprise so I don’t want to ask anyone until it gets closer so there’s less of a chance for anyone to spill the beans.

What about just an overnight trip somewhere not too far away from where you live? Or going to see a baseball game if you live close enough to an mlb stadium? Or for just in town, a couples massage is always an excellent gift/experience!
