Gear Patrol

When a woman in your life's birthday rolls around, it serves as a chance to get her something that she'll use, sure, but it is also an opportunity to add some personality into your pick. It can be equal parts practical and sentimental. Instead of representing the celebration of a holiday like Christmas or Valentine's Day, her birthday gift is a celebration of her as a person and what you love about her. Here are 30 of our favorite birthday gifts for whether you're shopping for your significant other, your mom, sister or friend.
