Birthday Wishes For Your Friends

When you don’t work for Hallmark, writing the perfect heartfelt birthday greeting can be tough. Heartfelt sentiments are for those who matter most. Some greetings may be too sincere while others may be too cheesy.

If you are looking for a heartfelt sentiment, try one of the following:

  • "Happy Birthday to a friend I couldn't live without!"
  • "Happy Birthday to one of my favorite people in the history of ever."
  • "May the joy that you have spread in the past come back to you on this day. Wishing you a very happy birthday!"
  • "Happiness is not a gift, it is a reward. Happy birthday to someone who truly deserves a day full of cheer."

Birthday Wishes For Your Beloved Partner

Finding the perfect birthday greeting for your significant other can be very difficult. No matter how long you have been together, it is important to find a way to express your emotions and share a happy birthday with them.

Check out the following potential birthday greetings for your significant other:

  • "Happy Birthday to my blue crayon -- The one I never have enough of, the one I use to color my sky."
  • "Happy Birthday to my favorite person, dearest friend, closest companion, and love of my life!"
  • "May you be gifted with life's biggest joys and never-ending bliss. After all, you yourself are a gift to earth, so you deserve the best. Happy birthday."
  • "I'm so grateful you came into the world because you make my world better every day. Happy Birthday, Love"

Lighthearted and Fun Birthday Greetings

Last but not least, coming up with humorous cards for those who bring joy to your life can be fun but difficult. Whether you are looking for a birthday greeting for a coworker or a funny birthday message for your parent, you want to strike the balance between funny and loving.

Here are some ideas for lighthearted birthday messages:

  • "Here's to another year of laughing until it hurts and keeping each other moderately sane. Happy Birthday best friend!"
  • "Happy Birthday to the only person I would rescue in the event of a zombie apocalypse."
  • "Take every birthday with a grain of salt. This works better when the salt accompanies a large margarita."
  • "Birthdays are good for your health. Studies have shown that people who have more birthdays live longer."
  • "Happy Birthday! I hope your birthday is as amazing and fun as I am! Good luck with that… ;)"
  • "Happy Birthday! I would bake you a cake if I knew how to use an oven…"

Overall, the perfect birthday greeting largely depends on the nature of the relationship you have with the recipient. Whether you want to say something sentimental or funny in your birthday message, be sure to select a greeting that is true to you.

For those special people in your life, sending a sentimental message on their birthday is just the right way to show your appreciation and gratitude for who they are. The following series of birthday wishes serve as great examples to the types of sentiments you can share. These have been used by others and intended to inspire your own personal birthday wish.

Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.

All the things that you are dreaming of may come true, may all your wishes be fulfilled. Happy birthday my best friend.

Count your life by smiles, not tears. Count your age by friends, not years.

Everything I know I learned after I was thirty.

Everything important that I’ve learned, I have learned from you. Happy birthday.

Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.

Happy birthday to my best friend with whom I have spent my best years together.

Here’s wishing you all the special things in life that bring you happiness. Have a lovely day.

It is better to wear out than to rust out.

It’s not how old you are, but how you are old.

I’ve always wanted the best for you. I would give you the world if I could. You certainly deserve it. Happy Birthday.

May the candles become the beacon of true success in your life.

May you live all the days of your life.

May you only experience joy and the best life has to offer on your birthday. Happy birthday.

No wise man ever wished to be younger.

Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.

On your birthday, blow out all your candles and be sure to make a wish for each and every one. This year, they all come true. Happy birthday.

Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time.

The day is bright, the air is light, enjoy through out the night, my friend, I wish you a super hit birthday.
The older the fiddler, the sweeter the tune.

There are some things people won’t tell you about yourself. I’m not one of those. I think you need to know how wonderful you are. Happy birthday.

When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.

With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come.

You can’t turn back the clock, but you can wind it up again.

You have given us a greater sense of self and purpose. You are a rare and priceless gem. Happy birthday.
Youth has no age.

There is always an occasion throughout the year to celebrate. The cost of celebrating is a whole other story. More than 25 million cards are sent on Valentines alone, followed by another 30 million shared on Mother’s Day. Creating multi billion dollar holidays, celebrating holidays and special occasions can become a costly venture. Hallmark manufactures more than 1,300 different cards for Valentines Day alone. This and more interesting facts are found in the below infographic.

Time Goes By
Poet: Kate Summers, © 2017

The years go by so fast
It seems like only yesterday
We had a birthday splash
And now a full year has again gone past.

Time goes by and then we see
How the years just seem to fly by
I know that you agree with me
It is a fact of life we can't deny

So live this year
Be all that you can be
As we will turn around
And next year will be here.

The Passing Years

Poet: Edward Tuck

Age is a quality of mind:
If you have left your dreams behind,
If hope is lost,
If you no longer look ahead,
If your ambition's fires are dead,
Then you are old.

But if from life you take the best
And if in life you keep the jest,
If love you hold,
No matter how the years go by,
No matter how the birthdays fly,
You are not old.

Here Is A Wish
Poet: John McLeod

Here is a wish that says:
Warm, happy hours be yours
Shadows are of passing note
But healing laughter cures.
Be, therefore, ever joyful, Friend,
And walk on gladsome feet
Towards tomorrow's brand new dawn
And promise sweet!

Hard To Believe
Poet: Kate Summers, © 2017

It's hard to believe you are celebrating another birthday
It was only yesterday your life was full of play
Now here you are with accomplishments in life
And your attitude is one without strife
We are so proud of you
We wish you success in all you do.
So on this day we wish you well
We think you are special and oh, how swell!

As I Grow Old
Poet: Arnold West

God, keep my heart attuned to laughter
when youth is done;
when all the days are gray days, coming after
The warmth, the sun.
God keep me then from bitterness, from
When life seems cold;
God keep me always loving and believing
As I grow old.

Inspirational Prayers

Another Year
Poet: Theodore W. Higginsworth © 2017

Another birthday, another year
May you have problems that disappear
May you have health
And a bit of wealth
May you share
With those who care
May the coming year
Be one of good cheer.

Age Is Not To Be Feared
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer© 2017

Another birthday, another year
Remember though that age is not to be feared
You are just achieving your prime
Here's to your health and living a long time

As they say, be happy, don't worry
Enjoy your life and don't be in a hurry
We take this opportunity to wish you
Happiness in all you do.

We appreciate your caring
Your always willingness for sharing
Thank you, for being you
We love you and all you do.


The Happiest Age
Poet: Wilhelmina Stitch

What age is happiest?
Had you asked me,
I would have made this plea:
the Now is best.

What joy to live with zest each newborn day;
and from the Moment wrest what Life will give away.
The Past is but a guest who came and went,
and left this one behest: to be content.

Think how To-day is blest!
We've eyes to see Nature in Beauty drest for you, for me.
What matter that the crest of Youth is past.
Youth lives within the breast with joys that last.
The will to do our best, and hands for giving.
Oh! Now's the happiest, best time for living!

What age is happiest?
Oh! hear my vow, for I have put the test -
the happiest's Now.
Sweet sighs and kindly jest for warmth and cheer;
and Love's most high bequest to crown the year.

Poet: Greta Zwaan, © 2015

I think of aging as a gift, a privilege to enjoy,
Not as space or empty time that’s easy to destroy.
Years of toil are history now, your strength is almost spent,
But all the days still left to you are surely heaven sent.

You now have time to reminisce, to think of years gone by;
Remembering all the things you've done and now you wonder "Why?"
You stop and think and want to know why youth so quickly flew,
Time then was brief, just fleeting by; so much left up to you.

And now your family's grown and gone, they're scattered, far away;
And as you ponder on the past you feel alone each day.
But I know one sweet promise to those who are God's own,
“I’ll always walk beside you, you’re never left alone."

Your prayers aren't left unanswered, there's still much you can do;
Consider interceding for folks who need Him too.
When folks feel lost and lonely, greet them with a smile,
And give them the assurance that life is still worthwhile.

You're still here for a reason, so do the best you can;
You have God-given talents that fit into His plan.

Happy Birthday Poems

As He sent us a special treasure.

May this year bring you

A Very Happy Birthday
Poet: Kate Summers, © 2017

A very Happy Birthday to you
Don't let your age make you feel blue
Another year older and wiser you are
You should feel like a shining star.

Age is just a number you see
What's important is for you to be
Loving and living each day with glee
And celebrating for all to see.

So be happy with this special day
We hope this card which is sent your way
Will make you realize you lucky you are
To have live your life so long this far.

Best wishes and kisses we do send
Over the miles and around the bend
A happy, happy day to you
We are celebrating with you too.

The Best of Birthdays

We wish you happiness and health
And never forget that the important things are not wealth
