The 30th birthday is a milestone that deserves a special celebration. Do something memorable for your wife on this important day to show her how much she means to you. Consider her likes and interests before deciding on any gifts or events to ensure a happy and successful birthday celebration.

Spa Day

Most ladies adore a little primping and pampering, and a birthday is an especially appropriate day to indulge. Gift your wife with a luxurious day at the spa for some relaxation and special attention. Spoil her by providing an extensive spa experience complete with any treatment she desires. She can choose to experience the day by herself or enjoy it with some close girlfriends. Either way she will be able to look start the new decade feeling fresh-faced and rejuvenated.

Surprise Party

Gather your wife's dearest friends and family members for a special surprise party to celebrate her milestone birthday. Plan the party plenty of time in advance, and enlist others to help you pull off the surprise element. A surprise party can be an intimate event or a blowout affair, depending on your budget and preferences. She will likely be shocked and thrilled to discover all the behind-the-scenes planning that went into the event.

Breakfast in Bed

Start her 30th birthday and the new chapter in her life with a special treat to show her how much she means to you. Starting the day in such a nice way sets off positive energy that will likely continue throughout the day and, hopefully, the decade. Prepare her favorite morning foods and arrange them on a tray before she wakes up. Include a small floral arrangement and a sweet birthday note to make the breakfast in bed even more thoughtful.

Destination Birthday

Help your wife celebrate turning 30 by whisking her away for a destination birthday. Have a couples retreat with just the two of you in attendance or invite your nearest and dearest to accompany you on your adventure. Milestone birthdays are meant to be celebrated in big ways, so surprise her with tickets to a place she's been dying to explore. A relaxing retreat to Caribbean beaches might be right up her alley, or she may prefer a rockin' Vegas party weekend. Go as big as your budget and time constraints will allow to truly celebrate in style.
