Personalised 30th Birthday Prints - Unique 30th Birthday Gift Ideas

Looking for a 30th birthday present? Thirty is one of those important 'milestone' birthdays where it can sometimes be tricky to find a suitable gift. 

We've got you covered: personal gifts are popular, and we've put together this page of some of the best 30th birthday personalised prints we have. 

Personal giftsstrengthens the bond between the giver and recipient, and a personal gift shows you've treated the recipient as an individual rather than as 'just another person to find a gift for'. They'll appreciate that!

Our prints: 

  • are specifically designed as 30th birthday presents
  • can often include your own personal touch, like a personalised message, so you can make your print just right for whoever you're giving it to

(1) The Top Ten Records From 30 Years Ago: Music On The Day You Were Born

What music was at the top of the charts on the day you were born? Here are a couple of prints thatanswer that question! Tell us a date of birth from 30 years ago and we'll create a custom print of the UK's top ten singles for that date. 

There are two print designs, each for a different retro music format: 

  • the vinyl LP (undergoing a big resurgence at the moment)
  • the cassette tape (the rather fiddly format that could end up with the tape spooling out of the cassette and creating a horrible mess BUT - importantly - it gave us the freedom to make our own mix tapes and made music portable).

Both print designs are available in a choice of colours and can, of course, be customised so you can make them really personal. Click on the pictures below to see the different options.

The LP print shows the top ten songs printed on a record label:

(2) Personalised 30th Birthday Year In Movies Print

A print bursting with movie trivia and facts from the world of film and cinema of 30 years ago. The print shows the highest grossing movies in the UK, film debuts, details of awards (Oscars, BAFTAs, Golden Raspberry Awards) and more. Lots of interesting trivia for film buffs!

You personalise this print with the name and date of birth of the gift recipient. We find out the number one movie at the UK box office and include its title on the print.

The print is a lovely piece of movie history, a brilliant nostalgic conversation piece. It's available in several colour schemes.

(3) Personalised Record Collection Print

This print gives the impression of a record collection. It shows popular records that were in the charts 30 years ago. Half the records are albums and the other half are singles, so you get a good mix of artists and songs and a good idea of what music was popular in the UK charts thirty years ago - it's a great memory-jogger for those who remembers the 1990s!

This print shows music from the UK charts (we have another version that shows music from the US charts):

To make your print more personal, there are three (optional) ways that you can customise it:

  • add a short message (one character on each record spine) - your message is printed along the bottom of the print, below the year (it's prefect for messages like 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHERYL!').
  • add a longer message (one word on each record spine) - your message appears towards the top of the print
  • If there are any records from 30 years ago that you want to make sure appear on the print, we can change our standard selection to include it.

This print is ideal for music lovers. It's a unique, nostalgic, music print. 

Here's a detailed look at some of the spines:

(4) 30th Birthday Facts And Trivia Print

This print is crammed with fascinating facts and trivia from 30 years ago. It's a mix of all sorts of information: television, movies, sport, music, money, famous births, news events...

The recipient's name and birthdate appear in the middle section of the print and they're surrounded by all the things that were going on in the world when they were born; it's a small piece of their personal history.

This print is based on UK events (so, for example, the sporting events are well-known and popular UK events, like the F.A. Cup Final). The prints come in several different colours.

(5) Personalised 30th Birthday Abstract Art Year and Date Prints

These prints are based on a very simple idea: replace numbers with colours, then use the colours to create the artwork. Because dates are often written using numbers, they're perfect for this unique kind of custom abstract art print.

Here's an example...

  • The date 4th March 1962 can be written as 04031962
  • Replace each number with a colour (the colour for each number appears at the bottom of the print)
  • Print the colours in the same sequence as the numbers in the date to create the artwork. Result: an artwork that is unique for every date.
  • For a 30th birthday gift, you could print a date of birth, or the date of the 30th birthday

These prints will appeal to people interested in computing, science or maths because they're already familiar with the concept of presenting numerical information in a visual way.

In science, presenting data visually often makes things easier to understand. In these custom artworks, presenting the date visually is just a bit of fun! 

It's interesting to watch someone look at one of these prints and see them working out what it means (it's not hard to 'crack the code' but it's still satisfying when you do!).

The custom abstract artworks for years are more minimalist and bolder, because there are only four digits in a year rather than the eight digits in a complete day/month/year date:

(6) Personalised 30th Birthday Year In Music Print

A music print bursting with music trivia and facts from the music world of 30 years ago. The print shows the top selling UK albums and singles, details of music awards and live music, births of famous musicians, and many other music events from thirty years ago. There are numerous facts for music-lovers to pore over!

You personalise this print with the name and date of birth of the gift recipient. We use the date to add another nice little detail: we print the UK number one single and album on the day they were born.

The print is a unique piece of personal music history and a fabulous nostalgic conversation piece. It's available in several colour schemes.
