Happy Wednesday everyone, today is my 30th birthday! I can’t believe I am officially 30, sometimes I still feel like a teenager; but then I remember I have a mortgage and all the other responsibilities of being an adult.
I thought it would be fun today to share a birthday wish list for you all. This list is great for telling people what you may want for your birthday or give you ideas when buying for someone else. Also, there will be quite a few luxury items in this post, because I decided I made 30 trips around the sun and I am starting a whole new decade, so why not?!
Disclaimer: there will be some crossover from my Valentine’s Day Gift Guide since my birthday is only a week before Valentine’s Day – these items are perfectly acceptable for me to receive for either … (I am looking at you hubby).
Let’s jump right into it with something that I may or may not have texted my mom the link to saying “Hey, my birthday is in a few weeks” and a bunch of heart and kiss emoji’s.
The Cricut Machine – Ya’ll this thing is AMAZING. If you saw my Instagram stories you saw all the fun things I made with this machine that I borrowed from my cousin for my sister in laws bachelorette party. We leave tomorrow so I can’t post on here just yet what I made since it is all still a surprise, but look for my Bachelorette Destination Planning blog post coming soon where I will share it all. This is the machine that makes all of those amazing vinyl crafts you see people selling. Shirts, decals, cups, bags, – everything!
Here are some examples I found on Etsy of things you can make with it!
Let’s just all take some time to apologize to my husband in advance – I have been plotting to get a Gucci crossbody bag forever telling him that is what I want for every holiday – and I mean every holiday like even flag day.
A beautiful heart necklace is a special gift that is perfect for a birthday.
Also, what girl does not need a new pair of shoes? Opening a pair of shoes you have been swooning over is always super special. I always need to size up in these brands – so a size 38 babe 😉
A great luggage piece is always a great gift – and what better way to surprise someone on their birthday with some great travel essentials for a trip.
Don’t forget to book the trip to an awesome location, here are the two places in the US I am really excited to go and explore next!
This book is bought and ready for me to read while on my trip tomorrow, I have been dying to read this empowering book. Any woman would love to receive it.
A great camera is an awesome gift to receive to document all of the adventures you go on. For the blogger in your life, this ring light stand is the perfect accessory to go with the camera, or to get for the camera she already owns!
Let’s just say I was feeling very adventurous the day I decided German would be the language I wanted to learn, but it has been a way to share new information with my husband. Maybe the person you are buying for has been wanting to learn a language but hasn’t taken the plunge. Help them get started!
Something that I love to do, but don’t share with you often on here or my instagram is I love to cook and bake. So, any great products that I may not buy for myself for the kitchen is a great birthday idea. My life was changed when my mom bought me a stand up mixer and I know almost any girl would love to receive one.
What is a better gift, then the gift of wine … I’ll wait. Giving a wine club subscription to the wine lover in your life to explore new wines is nothing short of perfect.
When in doubt pampering is always the answer! If you still are not sure what to buy, gift cards for massages, facials, mani/pedi or the hair salon are always great. A quick weekend getaway, for us Atlantic City and Cape May are the go to getaways. Head somewhere for the weekend and just relax and have a nice meal. Maybe try something new together, go to a wine tasting!
I hope you all enjoyed this Birthday Wish List post – let me know what items you are all wanting to get for your birthdays in the comments!
