My youngest daughter turned thirty last week!
As hard as it was to believe (where the heck did all that time go?!?!), thinking of the perfect 30th gift idea was even harder.
We are big celebrators of birthdays in my family.
I took my oldest daughter to Ireland the summer she turned thirty.
It’s kinda hard to top that.
My youngest daughter has an 11-month-old son, so travel just isn’t in the cards right now.
But I still wanted to do something special to celebrate the amazing person she is.
So I called her sister, and we decided to make a gift basket with 30 gifts.
We wanted small gifts that she would like, but that also would mean something to her.
So we decided to add photo cards. I went through piles of photos, scanned them, and printed them off at my local Walmart.
I printed out 30 photos from all stages of her life.
We (here, I really mean my daughter) wrote sweet, affirmational, funny messages tying them to whatever the gift was.
There were a lot of puns. Alex is an expert at puns.
We tried to be very thoughtful of the types of things she likes.
The gifts included gift cards to her favorite stores, home decor items (she and her husband just moved into a new home), books, hair accessories, wine, candles, cozy socks in her favorite color, and even a few of her favorite childhood treats (including a box of pop-tarts).
She loved opening all the gifts!
I loved that it was a trip down memory lane.
Simply perfect for a daughter’s 30th birthday celebration.
BTW, she saved all of the notes.
I can’t wait to see what her 30’s bring her!
You can shop some of the items we included in her basket. *affiliate links included.
Until next time,
