Happy Birthday Wishes for your Facebook Friends

birthday wishes quotes for friends in english

True friends are hard to find. Having one good friend is already a great blessing, but a true BEST friend is absolutely the luckiest addition you can have in your life. Your best friend will never leave you, even when you’re down. He/she is someone you can talk to whenever you have problems, about anything… no matter the trouble. So when your best friend’s birthday is approaching, you must show your appreciation for their support by doing something special for him/her.

A birthday should always be a special occasion for the celebrant. Being the highlight of the day, they may want to wear something special and, of course, you want them to feel as good as they can! A birthday only comes once a year but throughout this day you can show your love and appreciation of your best friend by sending him/her your most sincere birthday wishes. The same is true if you are sending birthday wishes to your brother or sister, or anyone else you love or appreciate. Remember: it always lies within your power to make someone’s birthday a truly special occasion.

Unique Birthday Wishes For Friend

1. Enjoy every moment of your life.

Life can be beautiful, but it can also be brief. No one ever knows how much time we all have to share with one another. Your best friend means a lot to you, which is why you should always want them to enjoy their life. Every day can be an adventure, and there’s literally no time to waste. The world is so big, it’s nice to share it with the people you love.

2. Wishing you an awesome day with good luck on your way.

How great would be to have a dear friend who will greet us like this on the special occasion of our birthday? We all worry about how the whims of fortune will impact us on a personal level. We universally admire those who seem to be the luckiest among us, those for whom the dice always seem to roll the highest numbers, the constant recipients of “happy accidents.” Luck is very important in how we see our world. So it makes perfect sense to wish our best friend the very best luck on their birthday. Since our birthdays are the special anniversary of our entry into the world, what better day to receive the collective blessings of the universe? And to share that good fortune with those who love us.

3. You deserve to sit back with a pillow under your feet.

A birthday is a time for you to sit back, relax, and enjoy, my friend. Every birthday we experience is another milestone of the distance we’ve traveled in the previous 365 days and the work we’ve done. All we have accomplished, gained, and lost in the previous year is lamented and celebrated on the anniversary of our birth. But it should also be a time of personal reflection and, hopefully, the perfect opportunity to celebrate and take pride in a year well lived, and a job well done.

4. May you have all the joy your heart can hold.

This is one of the best birthday wishes for friend sentiments that you can give to your best friend. We all want our loved ones to experience a life of joy, and we treasure the joyful moments we can share together. This is especially true of our close friends, and our best friends certainly top that list. When we wish them all the best things in life, the joy, the smiles, the blessings that make life worth living, we are expressing the purest form of love for them.

5. May your day be as beautiful as you.

By sending this birthday wish to your friend, you can make them smile on this special day. Everyone appreciates a compliment, no more so than on their birthday. This birthday sentiment tells them that you wish for them to experience all that is good and that you find them beautiful and deserving of all that’s best in life. Your world is more beautiful because they are in it, and you share that beauty together.

6. A day brim full of all things good is a friend’s fond wish for you.

This old-fashioned illustration of birthday children speaks to the best wishes we offer to our friends, notably to our very best friends. This says “I hope you can fulfill all your wishes on your birthday,” just a brief missive letting the reader know that the sender wishes them a the most onderful natal day that can be imagined.

7. I’m wishing you a birthday bright.

Friends who truly love you won’t forget your birthday and always wishes you well. They also wish for you to have a bright birthday, many good and loyal friends, and days of good health and good fortune now and in the future. Who wouldn’t love such an endearment as this? It is a selfless proclamation of love and loyalty from one true friend to another.

8. I looked for something sweet to send to you.

On your birthday, I want to give you something special to let you know how much I care for you. How often do we find ourselves seeking the perfect gift to give to those we love? We wish we lived in a world where money meant nothing, where we could procure any gift we wished for our friends and loved ones without thought of price. Except, where our best friends are concerned we DO live in a world where money means nothing… because the worth of a gift lies in the emotion of the giver and the quality of the recipient. In consideration of that, even the sweetest rose might doubt its worth when presented to the sweetest of best friends.

9. On this wonderful day, a star of pure love appeared to be my gift.

A true friend is the only one who loves you sincerely. To your best friend, you are a star straight from the heavens, and the real “present” is the present time spent with the one you love… your best friend. On your birthday, a star shines down on you: the light from that start is the eternal light of love, your unyielding friendship.

10. On your birthday you are wished all that you hope for.
