Writing birthday messages is something that most of us will do countless times in a year. And while sometimes it can feel like the right words just flow with ease, I’m sure we can all recall a time when the task has felt a little more challenging. Times when you feel like you’re prattling off the same message you’ve used time and time again, perhaps even to this same recipient? Hopefully not!
Well if your regular lines are feeling a little dusty, we’ve gathered a few suggestions of phrases you could include, which might even be new-to -you, or, more importantly, to your recipient.
Here are some examples of potential phrases you could include in a birthday card message;
- Wishing you the happiest of birthdays, you glorious human!
- I hope today is filled with things that are as fabulous as you.
- I have no doubt you’ll be celebrating in style today. Enjoy it!
- Wishing you a year of love, happiness and adventure ahead.
- What a privilege it is to be celebrating another birthday! We are so lucky that we get to be here with you for it.
- What a year it’s been! Here’s to the next and the continued love and happiness that fill it.
- I am so glad you decided to be born.
-  years ago today, the world got a little more awesome. Today, it’s a whole lot more awesome. Thanks for doing your bit.
- Thanks for being the kind of person whose birth we want to celebrate.
- I love that you having a birthday gives me reason to pause and think about all your loveliness.
- You just get better with age.
- It’s been an honour to spend another year with you in my life! Looking forward to countless more to come.
- Hoping that the awesomeness of this day sets the tone for the year ahead.
- I love how many amazing times we’ve shared over the years. Let’s make sure this year is no different, packed with more memory making together.
- I hope today is spent surrounded by your amazing group of family and friends, who are a true testament to the incredible person that you are!
- I love you exactly as you are my friend/love.
And if you can’t be there physically…
- Sending love and birthday wishes across the seas to you today.
- I hope your day is sunny and bright, and that you can feel all of the love pouring in from all over the globe. Wish I could be there to celebrate with you.
- I’m raising a glass to you today, and sending you wishes for the best year yet. You deserve it!
Hopefully you find some inspiration amongst these lines.
Happy birthday card writing!
