It offers a neat, fun, and handy way to keep their favorite recipes stored all in one place. Their favorite recipes will never go missing again.
For carbonated drinks lovers
Nearly everyone has heard of SodaStream. And it’s not hard to see why. SodaStream’s machines make it easy to make carbonated beverages at home. They are very easy to use and install. Need some ideas? Here are some drinks to carbonate:–
- Fruit juices
- Vegetable juices

A screwdriver set is a necessity. Especially if your friend is a homeowner or has their own place.
It also comes in handy when your bestie has some gadgets they need to repair. A more specific scenario is they are building their own PC. This gift will save them the hassle of having to rummage around to find the tools needed.
The set comes with several different tools, a multitool, and a portable bag, to boot.
For fondue lovers
Does your best friend have a fondness for fondue? With this fondue maker, they can have their own fondue session anyway they want. Chocolate. Cheese. Broth. Sweet. Savory. Dessert. Meat. Vegan. All at the comfort of their own home.
For tea lovers
Tea fanatics will adore this Japanese-style kettle. It comes in a few different colors. The kettle is cast iron with an enameled interior. Decorative and functional. Your friend can make their tea in a kettle worthy of it!
For road trip
I know what you’re thinking. Smartphone already has that feature. But this idea is not for everybody. In fact, it is only great for people who are frequent road trippers. Why? Because charging and re-charging your phone is the best way to ruin the battery life. Also, a GPS system like Garmin offers state-of-the-art navigation direction. Something Google Maps hasn’t quite caught up.
For the crafty alcoholic friend
If your best friend is alcoholic and crafty, this kit is sure to please them. Bonus point if your friend likes to play Skyrim (the video game)… Chances are they are intrigued by the mead found throughout the game. This is a mead making kit. It provides all you need to start making your own mead at home. The only thing it needs that it doesn’t have is a drinking horn!
For Xbox users
Gaming is popular for people of all ages. So it is likely that your bestie is a gamer. And if they are a particular breed of gamer – namely Xbox users, they will love this gift… The Xbox Game Pass. With this pass, your friend can play over 100 Xbox and PC games — single-player and multiplayer.
For your bestie who’s too busy to vacuum
Does your bestie have to deal with cleaning their carpet and floor a lot? Then this Roomba design is a powerful if rather pricey gift that they are sure to love! These little guys have come quite a long way over the years.
For coffee addicts
Black Rifle Coffee Company
If your bestie is a coffee lover, they deserve the best. This 12 pack of BRC coffee is some of the greatest in North America. It is enough to tide them over for a few good mornings. And they will be glad that you introduced them to such a badass brand of coffee!
For Apple users
Apple always outdoes themselves with their technology. If your best friend is an ardent Apple fan or even just casually owns an Apple device… the AirPods can give upon them a wonderful hands-free musical experience!
The Gift of Friendship
Even if none of these ideas fit your needs, I hope they have provided you some inspiration. With the right gift, you can make your best friend’s 30th their best birthday ever. Good luck—you’ll do great!
