These funny 30th birthday sayings are perfect for writing in cards.
You could also use them to make a badge that the birthday boy or girl can wear with pride! You can find badge making kits in craft stores. Or you could use this online medal generator to make an image of a medal and then print it out.
30 isn't old. Depressing, but not old.
I finally reached the perfect age. Somewhere between 29 years and none of your business!
Old enough to know better. Young enough to do it anyway!
I'm not 30. I'm only $29.95 plus tax.
In dog years, I'd be dead.
I'm 30 and I feel great. Here, have a feel! (This works well on a T-shirt as well as a badge)
I'm not 30. I'm 21 with 9 year's experience!
That makes me 30!
Congratulations on turning 30. You're now officially OLD.
You've been promoted! (from 29 to 30)

"In Memory of Youth" Tombstone
Here's a slightly mean (but funny) 30th birthday gag gift. Use this online tombstone generator to create tombstone that says "In loving memory of (Name)'s Youth. 1981 - 2011" .
You could also go one step further and make an actual physical mini-tombstone out of a plank of wood, and put a little bit of fake grass on the bottom. Alternatively I think it would be fun to make one out of gingerbread and decorate it!
For a balding guy, an alternative tombstone message could be:
"In loving memory of (Name)'s Hair"
Funny Newspaper Clipping
Use our handy newspaper generator to make a fake newspaper story about how your friend has turned 30 and is now officially "old".
It's a nice touch to print it out and put it inside their birthday card. You can include a little note which says something like:
"I almost forgot your birthday but then I saw this article in the paper that reminded me!"
Funny 30th Birthday Gag Gift Shirt
Get a T-shirt and use finger paints to make 6 hand prints on it, and then write on it "I'm this many!".
One of the visitors to our site wrote in saying that they'd made this for a friend's 30th birthday. They didn't have a photo so above is my "artist's impression" of what it might have looked like.
Don't have time to make a shirt? Check out the great range of "Vintage 1987" Hoodies and Sweatshirts on Amazon, these would make a funny 30th birthday gag gift too!
Level 30, Game Over
Can you cross-stitch? Then maybe you could make something like this: a Super-Mario "Level 30 Game Over" cross-stitch. Pure genius! Kudos to weeta from Craftster who made this!
30th Birthday Gag Gift Poem
A silly poem to go along with your gag gift:
But don't be scared - there's nothing to fear!
Nothing, that is, but creaky joints...
...and an achy back, and a few other points...
Oh and wrinkly skin, and age spots too
But don't worry old man (or woman), we'll still love you!
