30th Birthday Present Ideas for Men in Melbourne

30th Birthday Present Ideas for Men in Melbourne


Looking for 30th birthday present ideas for men in Melbourne used to have an element of simplicity. You go down the road, you hit up the pub, you have a few schooners and all give a speech about how their antics over the last three decades have impacted you. 

Unfortunately, due to coronavirus, your 30th birthday gift ideas may take a little more consideration. We’re not saying that the pub is a bad idea by the way, but with social distancing laws still in place, it’s important to think of gifts for him that don’t rely on Melbourne’s network of bars, clubs and upside-down cocktail lounges. If you’re all stuck at home, there are fun and creative 30th birthday present ideas and gifts for men that they can still enjoy, even in the confines of a lockdown!

Thankfully, there’s no tradition when it comes to 30th gifts for men

Unlike wedding anniversaries, actual weddings, funerals and baby showers, there are no traditions you’re culturally obligated to vaguely follow when it comes to 30th birthday gift ideas. Which is good, because as mentioned above, your choice of experience gifts has diminished somewhat, since this whole pandemic thing took over. Although hitting up the pub is a quality idea for any birthday celebration, current social distancing laws in Melbourne can make organising pub-related gifts for him an incredibly laborious process. 

Whether it’s due to the patronage restrictions, the necessity to book out an entire space (and you still want to keep the 30th birthday gift ideas within a reasonable budget) or the fact that so many have gone out of business, it might be time to look outside the pub trip when hunting down 30th birthday present ideas for the guy in your life.

But never fear, there are still plenty of gifts for him that make for awesome birthday present ideas that will also support the small businesses the keeps Melbourne the wonderful artistic city that it is. 

Gifts for him to replace the pub

Here at ClassBento, we don’t mean to hark on about the pub being a crucial part of of the 30th gift ideas for him, but we are realists. So we understand that it was probably part of the plan. We have heaps of experience gifts that have absolutely nothing to do with drinking or toasting or celebrating with a consummate amount of alcohol, but allow us to offer our gifts for men that can directly sub in for the Melbourne bar experience. 

Nearly all of our virtual cocktail workshops can deliver you all of the equipment required to shake up a storm at home, and learn how to mix like the best of them. You’ll have to purchase your own alcohol, but all the skills, training and instruction will be delivered to you via live stream, to help you make the most of the utensils and really party on for your 30th birthday gift ideas. It is worth noting, however, that our virtual mixology classes are all Sydney based, so although they can be enjoyed in Melbourne if you’re looking to support Melbourne businesses, you’ll have to be willing to engage your artistic side. 

Paint For Fun Melbourne run some of the best informal Paint N Sip workshops anywhere in the country and in conjunction with our new LiveBox service, can deliver you everything you need to paint (and drink) up a storm for your 30th gift experiences. With a wide range of mediums, images and workshops to choose from, what you paint and how you paint it can be completely at the discretion of the birthday boy. 

Not only this, but this is one of the best gifts for him if you’re chasing something low-key and a little intimate. Alternatively, you can get the whole gang together on Zoom and paint together. Oh, and don’t forget the wine. This is crucial to making this an incredibly festive choice when looking for quirky 30th birthday present ideas in Melbourne.

Gifts for men as lockdown eases

Social distancing laws have certainly offered up a challenge to anyone organising birthday gifts for men and women, but as the laws start to slowly be repealed a few of ClassBento’s awesome gift experiences will start to expand your 30th birthday present ideas! Don’t get us wrong, we’re doing some pre-empting and some optimistic thinking here, but you should not only be prepared for the worst, but it also doesn’t hurt to be prepared for the best!

As mentioned above, Melbourne is a haven for incredible in-person cocktail-making workshops that can either be fantastic destination gift experiences or come directly to you and your party! Don’t worry, though. Melbourne has plenty more to offer. 

For instance, you may think that a pizza party might be a little too childish for your 30th birthday present ideas, but rest assured: you are wrong.OTAO Kitchen in Richmond has been pumping out some the best cooking classes Melbourne has to offer, and their pizza making party class is one of our most popular birthday present ideas! Although not currently available, it won’t be too long until it is, so it’s worth keeping a close eye on the imminent availability of this awesome party idea. 

Just to clarify: OTAO Kitchen offers you a much more comprehensive and hands-on experience for your gifts for him than just throwing some mozzarella on a pre-prepared pizza base. You’ll not only make a variety of up to seven different types of pizza, but you’ll also enjoy building an antipasti platter, all while washing it down with complimentary bevvies. Oh, and there’s dessert. This workshop is a real winner when searching for awesome 30th birthday present ideas. 

Whatever you choose, and no matter what stage of lockdown you’re reading this article, ClassBento has a range of 30th birthday present ideas perfect for keeping the birthday boy in your life happy, loved, and celebrated regardless of social distancing.
