My hubby turns 30 in January and I have no idea what to buy him and would love some ideas.
He's a bit of a geek and likes gaming and astronomy. Problem is, he has a telescope, a PS4 and I just bought him a PS Vita for Christmas.
So any ideas of an awesome 30th birthday present? Bonus points for a keepsake type present.
I have booked us a couple of nights as a family in the Blue Mountains but would love a present to go with

I did a big box with 30 presents in it (mostly small stuff with one keepsake present to be opened last; his was an engraved key ring and pocket tool thingy set).
Each present was wrapped individually and had a strip of paper around the outside with something we love about him. The kids came up with some on their own, we came up with some together and I did a few in my own. The kids ones were the best because they were such simple things: "I love when you throw me up" etc.
we painted the box and on the top put a huge happy 30th birthday. Then underneath that it said: 30 years, 30 reasons we love you.

When I turned 30 I asked for experiences rather than gifts because I've got enough "stuff" etc & memories last a life time.
For a family to embraces and values the keepsake gift EVERYONE came to the party as such, I got whale watching (something I've waited years to do), V8 supercar hot laps & laps I drove and sky diving.
Was hands down the best birthday I've ever had.
Maybe you could give an experience?!?
I love the star naming idea too

I did a box of 30 presents for my hubby's 30th earlier this year. He loved it. I included things like:
-canvas that the kids finger painted
-framed photo of him with the kids
-an IOU note (for a date night)
-home made fudge
-tissues (incase he cried because he's getting old )
-some of his favourite NZ lollies
-a set of coins from his birth year (I found them on eBay..really cool..all in a little folder)
-a match box car (a delorian so he could travel back in time)
-bubble gun (cos you're never too old to play with toys)

My DH turned 30 this year. I bought him a 30yr aged bottle of single malt scotch. He loved it. He hasn't tasted it yet, but he's constantly removing the stopper and sniffing it haha. It was a few hundred $$ though. I then also bought him Ross Noble tickets and a rude gnome for the garden He said my presents easily beat what anyone else gave him

Dh is 30 in a few days. Im surprising him with a skydiving trip (something he has always wanted to do), and maybe a bottle of something nice. With xmas and us moving right after xmas things are pretty tight
