20 Items That Men Should Buy in Their 30s
Now that you’re in your 30s, you know you’re not a “young adult” anymore. Your tastes, interests, and priorities have evolved and the lifestyle of your youth has given way to settling down, developing your career, and defining your life’s path. Your physical possessions should reflect your maturity and life experience, so here is a list of items that men should buy in their 30s.
1-A Tailored Suit
Whether for a job interview, wedding, funeral, or other occasions, a quality tailored suit is an essential part of an adult man’s wardrobe.
Like the tailored suit, quality leather dress shoes are essential.
Other than a wedding ring, a high-quality watch is the only piece of bling a mature man should wear.
4-Bathrobe and slippers
When you want to relax at home on a weekend, nothing beats a comfortable bathrobe and slippers.
5-A Favorite Chair
You can’t be the king of your domain without a comfortable throne to call your own.
Forget instant coffee or an espresso machine. Get a quality coffee pot that will serve you for years.
Whatever your favorite beverage is, always have some on hand when the occasion calls for celebration.
8- Wine Glasses
For quality wines, have glasses to match. Preferably with a stem and inward curve at the top so one can enjoy the aromas.
A quality kitchen knife can make prep work a joy.
10-A Guest Bedroom
Guests shouldn’t have to stay at a hotel or endure the couch. Have a space for their privacy and sleeping comfort.
Nobody wants to see your dirty laundry in a heap on the floor. Use an attractive hamper.
12-Matching Towel Set
They don’t need to be monogrammed, but a set of quality matching towels tells visitors that you have taste.
13-Full shaving kit
Get a quality safety razor and accessories (shaving cream, after-shave balm, and brush). The most cost-effective alternative to cartridge razors.
Healthy vibrant plants can enhance any room and provide fresh oxygen. A plant is just one step below goldfish in the order of “keeping it alive” responsibilities.
Your unframed Frank Frazetta Death Dealer poster doesn’t count.
A good stereo sounds far better than any Bluetooth speaker. You don’t have to be an audiophile to appreciate quality sound.
Dump the free promotional pens and get quality pens that represent your tastes and will last you for years.
Start with the essentials such as a hammer, screwdriver (flathead and Phillips), level, pliers, and tape measure. These will get you by for basic tasks. For power tools, a cordless drill is the minimum.
Ideally, a Swiss Army knife with a variety of tools, but any quality pocket knife works.
20-A Packed Overnight Bag
Whether it’s a fishing trip with your pals or a weekend getaway with your special lady, be prepared for a spontaneous road trip.
