30th Birthday Gift Ideas
30th Birthday gifts for those born in the 1990s
The 1990s saw a rise in multiculturalism and alternative media. Grunge, hip hop and the rave scene dominated the music industry with bands like Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Blur, Oasis, the Spice Girls and Boyzone rising to fame. U2 was the most popular band of the 1990s with their tours Zoo TV (1992) and PopMart (1997) becoming the best selling tours of the decade. In film, Disney had a renaissance period, returning to their animation roots to produce new classics like Beauty and The Beast, Aladdin and The Lion King. At the Oscars, the best picture winners included Dances with Wolves, Silence of the Lambs, Forrest Gump and Titanic. The 90s saw the introduction and rise of the World Wide Web and mobile phones started to become slowly more popular. Sony PlayStation became the most popular game console whilst the battle between Sega and Nintendo or Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Mario (their respective mascots) persisted throughout the decade. In Literature, J K Rowling's 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' was published in 1997, who could have known then what an amazing success her fabulous books would become? For those born in the nineties, the world moved at a faster pace and we hope the selection of gifts we have to offer, will help you celebrate the last decade of the 20th century.
