30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: Always Pan

The Instagram-famous Always Pan is wildly popular for a reason: This nearly five star-rated cast aluminum pan is essentially eight pieces of cookware in one. Made with ceramic nonstick coating, it functions as a fry pan, steamer, skillet, sauté pan, saucepan, spoon rest, spatula, wok and Dutch oven. Reviewed’s cooking writer considers it especially great for deep frying and says it's a good gift option for anyone who does a lot of stovetop cooking but is short on cabinet space.

7. For the one looking to upgrade their kitchen appliances: Cosori Air Fryer

30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: Cosori Air Fryer
30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: Cosori Air Fryer

We awarded the Cosori Air Fryer Max XL as our best-valued air fryer pick because this powerful kitchen gadget held two pounds of crinkle-cut fries and delivered them "well-browned and crispy" during testing. We also praised its nifty digital controls and useful preset settings, so your giftee can easily learn to use it—even if they're a cooking newbie. They might find that the inner basket is somewhat difficult to remove, but for its affordable price and large capacity, it's a valuable gift they'll be sure to use.

30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: Spanx Faux Leather Leggings

It's hard to find a pair of leggings that both fit great and turn heads as you walk down the street. Spanx Faux Leather Leggings combines the two with its ever-popular faux leather leggings. This closet staple features a glossy finish, great if your giftee plans to wear it on a night out. Many Nordstrom customers admired the flattering fit, with some repeatedly wearing them throughout the week. The site says that these leggings may run small, but most customers seemed to disagree—make sure to double-check your giftee's measurements before you hit "buy."

An AncestryDNA Kit can help them kickstart that journey and wander deeper into their own ancestral history, from uncovering family secrets (psst, it really does happen!) to creating family trees, and more.

30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: Revlon Hair Dryer

Our beauty editor found this Revlon Hair Dryer to be a magical hair tool that cut her drying time in half.  Billed as a “one-and-done” haircare solution, this gadget can help transform wet, frizz-prone locks into the perfect blow-out in half the time it would ordinarily take with an old blow dryer and brush—all without going to a salon.

$39 at Amazon

30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: Lululemon leggings

A way to put a smile on your favorite leggings-wearing giftee is to gift them a pair of Lululemon’s much-celebrated Align High-Rise Pant leggings. These leggings are terrific for everything from yoga poses to lifting weights and so much else.

$118 at Lululemon

16. For the one who loves comfort: Nodpod Weighted Eye Mask

30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: Nodpod Eye Mask
30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: Nodpod Eye Mask

We all know how weighted blankets help you fall asleep faster and more comfortably. Now, imagine this for your eyes! If your giftee has migraines or simply needs something calming, then they will love you for giving a Nodpod Weighted Eye Mask. It contours your face, blocks out light and provides gentle pressure to relieve stress.

$27 at Anthropologie

17. For the one who loves to stay organized: Happy Planner

30 best gifts to give for a 30th birthday: Happy Planner

Even if that about-to-be 30-year old in your life spends most of their time on their phone, a daily planner like this 2022 Stripes Fun & Grateful Planner can be a sweet way to help them relax, focus, and find their zen through organization.

As one of our favorite places to buy daily planners, Happy Planner’s adorable picks come thoughtfully decorated and a handy disc binding system, so it’s easy to add or remove pages. From tracking budget to staying on top of monthly goals, this planner can be a tender way to show support for that special someone throughout the year.

18. For the one who’s curious about smart tech but hasn’t tried it yet: Echo products

30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: Amazon Echo Line
30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: Amazon Echo Line

Amazon’s Echo line is a fabulous way to discover the wide, wonderful world of smart tech. If your giftee has been interested in exploring smart tech but hasn’t dived in fully yet, the Amazon Echo Dot, which is also one of the best smart speakers, could be a great gift option for them.

However, if you think your giftee might prefer a smart speaker with a screen, the Echo Show 5 is a steal at its current price point (less than $50) and can be a great way to play tunes, watch videos, follow along with recipes, and more. Our Reviewed editor found this to be perfectly sized and great sound for a small device.

$40 at Amazon

19. For the one who hates vacuuming: eufy Robovac 11S

30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: Robovac
30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: Robovac

The eufy by AnkerBoostIQ RoboVac 11S is our favorite affordable robot vacuum because it’s so budget-friendly in the grand scope of robot vacuums, where many units can go for double, even triple the price of the 11S. But that’s not all: This zippy, whisper-quiet gadget offers incredible suction and in our tests, picked up around 11.6 grams of dirt per run, which far exceeded what most iRobot units could handle.

If your giftee is pushing 30 and still considers vacuuming one of the worst household chores ever, the 11S could be just the thing they’ve been needing to help maintain their floors between deeper cleaning sessions.

$188 at Amazon

20. For the one who's always cold: BareFoot Dreams throw blankets

If your giftee loves to curl up on the couch with a hot cup of tea, get them a plush new throw blanket. Celebrity-approved brand Barefoot Dreams makes some of the best and you can snag one now in various colors and styles at Nordstrom.

There's a funky leopard print patterned In the Wild Throw Blanket, that's both stylish and incredibly soft. Nordstrom shoppers were filled with praises for it, calling this throw soft to touch and "worth every penny."  For a simpler, more classic style gift the monotone CozyChic Throw Blanket—the perfect addition to any couch or lounging surface.

$98 at Nordstrom

Feel like really treating someone? Consider grabbing a box of the best bath bombs we’ve tested here at Reviewed, the LifeAround2Angels Bath Bombs Gift Set, which comes with 12 fizzy, colorful and moisturizing bombs. Amazon reviewers swear they’re just as good as Lush bath bombs are but more affordable, and they’ll likely have your giftee eager to stay in the water until their fingers get all pruny.

$27 at Amazon

22. For the one who’s serious about baking: KitchenAid stand mixer

30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: KitchenAid
30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: KitchenAid

The KitchenAid stand mixer is iconic and one of those aspirational gifts that are probably already high-up on your giftee’s wish list, but given the price tag, they might be sheepish about saying so. Here at Reviewed, it reigns supreme, and we consider the 5-quart version the best stand mixer money can buy. It’s easy to use, comes with an assortment of attachments (even a pasta maker), and is available in 47 different color varieties. Often imitated yet never truly duplicated, a genuine KitchenAid stand mixer can be wonderful for everything from baking bread to grinding up meat and so much more.

$450 at Macy’s

30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: The Sill

Does your giftee have a green thumb or hopes to cultivate it? The Sill is one of the best plant delivery services we’ve ever tried because of its impressive inventory of cute plants and quick delivery times. The ZZ Plant is a great gift option because it’s not too difficult to care for. Our Reviewed editor found the plants to be a welcome addition to her living room that earned tons of compliments.

$194 at The Sill

25. For the one who loves smelling good: Bastide perfume

30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: Staub Cocette

The Staub Cast Iron Round Cocotte was awarded our best Dutch oven for its solid, sturdy and easy-to-clean design. It was great at braising both meat and veggies and simmering stews. Though slightly on the heavier side, its large sautéeing area and evenness of cooking make it the perfect gift for your foodie friends.

$350 at Zwilling

27. For the one who needs to hydrate more: Hydro Flask

30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: Hydro Flask
30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: Hydro Flask

The Hydro Flask Wide Mouth Bottle with Flex Cap is among one of the best water bottles we’ve ever tested here at Reviewed. Portable, durable, and exemplary in its ability to keep water cold for up to 24 hours, the classic 32-ounce version is the most perfect water bottle I've ever used, especially if you grab one with a straw lid. Whether your giftee is planning a lot of hikes this summer or just needs a new water bottle to replace the one they’ve been using for years, Hydro Flask lives up to the hype and makes a fab present.

$45 at Amazon

28. For the one who wants to see what the fuss is about: Birkenstocks

30 best gifts for a 30th birthday: Birkenstocks

If your giftee has never experienced the near-heavenly sensation of having their feet molded into the cloud-like soles of a pair of Birkenstocks before, do them a favor and gift them these Arizona Soft Footbed Sandals. You’ll probably win at gift-giving forever because of it.

From $140 at Nordstrom
