Pearl Harbor Warbirds offers two special flight packages for your loved one: our Admiral’s Warbird Adventure and Ensign’s Warbird Experience.

30th Anniversary Gift Ideas For Husband

Admiral’s Warbird Adventure

Our famous Admiral’s Warbird Adventure is an immersive two hour journey that gives you and your husband the opportunity to relive history as a Naval Aviator. You will be dressed in authentic WWII era flight gear, and prepped with aviation equipment issue, survival training, and a pre-flight briefing.

This adventure takes off from Kalaeloa Airport in Honolulu, and offers aerial views of Pearl Harbor, O’ahu Coasts, Wheeler, Kane’ohe, and Bellows airfields. This plane flies the same routes the Japanese pilots used in their attack.

Ensign’s Warbird Experience

This particular flight is 30 minutes packed with history in an authentic U.S. Navy SNJ-5C. You will experience an aerial view of Pearl Harbor and Wheeler Air Force Base, Kahuku, and Waikiki. You will learn the basic maneuvers of operating the plane, and will be in two-way communication with you and your pilot the entire time.

The 30-minute flight is perfect for people with packed schedules, or any aviation enthusiast or person who wants to see the beauty of Hawaii from the sky!

Either of our flights are perfect 30th anniversary gifts, and a great way to show how much you love your significant other!

Route 66 Road Trip

One of the best 30th anniversary gift ideas for husband who loves history and travel? A trip along the historic Route 66! Just like the song, you’ll wind from Chicago to L.A. … go through St. Louis; Joplin, Missouri; Oklahoma City, Amarillo, and Gallup, New Mexico; Flagstaff, Arizona; don’t forget Winona, Kingman, Barstow and San Bernardino! You’ll cut across some of the most scenic areas of the United States. Whether you take an RV or your everyday vehicle, there’s plenty you and your spouse can see.

Pearl Jewelry or Decor

Your 30th anniversary is your “pearl anniversary,” as you’ve surpassed silver (25th). but haven’t quite made it to gold (50th). Pearls, as well as mother of pearl, are used in so many exquisite home decor and fashion accessories that it shouldn’t be difficult to find something your spouse would like. Anywhere from pendants to pearl-encrusted picture frames, there’s bound to be a pearl gift somewhere for your spouse of 30 years.


Similar to the traditional and ceremonious pearls, lilies are the flower historically associated with the 30th anniversary.  Give your spouse a bouquet of lilies along with one of the above gems. Any gift of diamonds or a strand of pearls wrapped around a bouquet of flowers will show your spouse that you’ve gone the extra mile this 30th anniversary.

Shared Experience

Instead of buying one another a gift, put money towards a sweet or romantic experience you can share together. Look into booking a couples massage, spa or golf resort, or romantic getaway to a classic favorite or a place you’ve always wanted to visit. This is a great way to avoid buying one another gifts you might not like, want, or need. Instead, it allocates money toward building some intimate memories together.
