Finding gifts for women in their 30’s isn’t as difficult as you might think. Women in their 30’s are still just women, and despite their ages, they still love the same things they’ve always loved.
While there’s no single gift that can perfectly fit every woman in her 30’s, there are definitely some great options from which you can choose.

It also features exterior digital touch controls and an LCD temperature display. It’s perfect for both short- and long-term storage of wines, and it keeps them anywhere between 37.4ºF to 50ºF, meaning she’ll never have to worry about a room temperature bottle of wine.

Remind Her Who She Is: 23andMe Ancestry + Traits Service
DNA kits that tell people about their heritages have become all the rage in the last couple of years and for good reason. There are very few things in life cooler than finding out your true heritage and ethnicity make-up.
This 23andMe kit is probably one of the most popular DNA ancestry kits on the market. It’ll match your loved one’s DNA with over 2,000 regions worldwide to see where her people were from originally. The service can even pinpoint when in her history an ancestor with a new ethnicity entered into her gene pool.
If she likes, she can even opt-in to the ‘DNA Relatives’ option that’ll alert her when someone else that shares her heritage signs up and uses the site. She then has the option to reach out to them and connect with family she never knew she had.
The kit is so precise that it can pinpoint her ancestry down to 0.1%. If you’re looking for a super cool gift that will add a lot of value to your loved one’s life, this is it. (Plus, if you’re related to her, this is kind of a win-win because you can learn a lot about your own ancestry as well, at least as it relates to hers.
For the Girl on the Go: TETON Sports Explorer 4000 Internal Frame Backpack

It features 4,000 cubic inches of space, which roughly translates to about a 65-liter capacity, and it has a strong, durable internal frame for structure. Despite that, though, the bag only weighs five pounds, making it perfect for long hikes and overnight camping trips.

Picking the Perfect Present for Your Perfect Girl
Despite how much some women complain about turning 30, the 30’s are actually a really magical time for women. At 30, women are still young, healthy, fit and active enough to go out and do the things they enjoy, and they’re also old enough not to do some of the ignorant, regrettable things they did in their late teens and twenties.
When it comes to gift-giving, there isn’t one gift that all 30 year old – or 30 something year old – women are going to love. Just because several women are roughly the same age doesn’t mean they’re anything alike, and thank goodness for that! The world would be horribly boring if all women liked the same things and wanted the same gifts. While all these differences make life more interesting, it can make picking out the perfect gift a little more difficult.
Luckily, though, you probably know the woman for whom you’re buying the gift fairly well. You know what she likes, what she dislikes, what makes her smile and what makes her excited.
You know her!
Your knowledge of your friend, mother, sister, wife, daughter, or any other woman in your life is all you really need to find the perfect gift. If you’re still stuck, though, there are a few tips to picking the perfect gift.
For example, is your loved one freaking out about turning 30?
If so, get her something lighthearted and fun to remind her that she’s still just herself, that age is just a number and that having another birthday is just one more reason to celebrate. If your friend is more the type who is absolutely killing it in her 30’s, get her something to reaffirm that she’s living her best life, and that you’ve never seen her more happy.
Additionally, don’t be afraid to pamper her a little! While the 30’s are great years, they’re also the years when a few weird, random pains might start cropping up every now and then, especially if she’s getting closer to 40 than 30.
Give her gifts to help her take care of her skin; give her gifts to soothe her aching feet; give her gifts that make her feel like a queen.
Finally, don’t be afraid to think outside of the box a little. Try to get that “30-year-old woman” stereotype out of your head. The 30’s are the new twenties, and your friend is just as capable now as she’s ever been. You don’t have to stick to “traditional women” gifts when buying for her. Buy whatever would make her happy, whether that’s a dozen roses, an at-home spa kit, a compound bow or an autographed ceramic bust of Ron Burgundy.
What do you think a great gift for a woman in her 30’s would be? If you’re a woman in your 30’s, we’d love to hear about the best gifts people have given you.
