In fact, the words “happy birthday” are all you really need. But then, that might be a little too brief – not to mention generic. To help you come up with a message.

This is an excerpt from the full collection of happy birthday wishes

Few days of the year are as important to us as a friend or loved one’s birthday. Whether we want to admit it or not, we expect a certain level of special treatment on our birthday and we also expect happy birthday wishes from those who are important in our lives. When your friends, family, spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend or other important people in your life have a birthday, we usually send them a birthday message greeting them and wishing them well. However, we often don’t give the birthday wishes careful thought. And on a day that is so important and personal to so many people, why not take the time to craft a clever, heartfelt, romantic or funny birthday wish that can help make their special day a bit more special?

However, it can sometimes be a bit difficult to come up with the right birthday message or to know what to write in a birthday card. But don’t worry, because we’ve got you covered. We have chosen for you the 35 best birthday wishes, quotes and messages perfect for any occasion. And not only that, but these birthday quotes are all on funny, touching or romantic images, because a picture can help say so much more.

This collection contains birthday greetings for anyone you know who is having a birthday including birthday wishes for a friend, co-worker, husband, wife, son, daughter, sibling, boyfriend, girlfriend and more. We even have some belated birthday wishes, because we all have moments of forgetfulness!

Feel free to share these with those you love and care about and enjoy the celebration of life. Happy birthday to us all!

I wanted to be the first one to wish you, but I couldn’t! I deeply regret that! Hope you had one of the best birthdays this year. Belated Happy Birthday to a very special person. May God bless you!

I like to celebrate your birth-month instead of your birthday. It is still your birth-month isn’t it?

Funny Wishes (and late)

Happy belated birthday to someone who now has free reign to forget mine.

How do you expect me to remember your birthday, when you never look any older?

Knowing how much fun you can be, I assume that the party is still going and that I am not late for your birthday. Keep on having fun.

A late birthday card is a lot like a bill from the doctor. Both tell you that you are getting older and both are a big surprise.

Fashionably late. Hope it was great.

I hear you’re celebrating a belated birthday,but all the other fools sent them on time!

Don’t hate me because I forgot your birthday. Hate me because I’m beautiful.

I wanted to give you your birthday card late so that you would have enough time to grieve the loss of your youth.

I truly regret not eating cake on your birthday so I plan to eat 2 desserts today to make up for it.

Birthday cards are like a group of high school P.E. class students running on a track. There are always some stragglers, and I’m the fat kid who smokes.

I may have forgotten your birthday, but at least I remember that I forgot your birthday.

Time seems to speed up the older you get, so at your age, I figured you wouldn’t even notice the time that went between your birthday and getting your card.

I can be wrong, I can be crazy, but I can’t be too late in wishing you a happy birthday.

My forgetting to give you your birthday card on time is proof that you are growing up way too fast.

I am late wishing you a Happy Birthday because I was worried that you would still be in your birthday suit.

I know you must be bugged because I missed your birthday. But I didn’t really forget it. I just didn’t want to remind you that you are growing old! Belated Happy Birthday anyway. I’m sure you had a blast!

I could have sent you a birthday greeting on your birthday and I could have started Google, but I didn’t. You are happy with Google so why not be happy with me being a little tardy in saying Happy Birthday!

Ran out of time birthday wishes

I cannot describe what you mean to me. You are the most beautiful and the most talented person on earth. Hope that makes you forgive me or else I can still do better. Just kidding, Belated Happy Bday.

Good thing you are getting more patient the older you get. Happy belated birthday

Houston, we have a problem. I spaced out and forgot your birthday. Was it out of this world?

It took me so long to write in your birthday card that I now have the perfect thing to say… Sorry I’m late, and happy belated birthday.

I thought that you wouldn’t celebrate your birthday after you turned 29. I guess I counted wrong and you are 29 this year. Sorry I am late. Happy Birthday.

My dog ate your birthday card, that is why this Happy Birthday wish is a little late.

I would tell you the super-secret reason that I am late wishing you a Happy Birthday, but it is classified information and is available only on A NEED TO KNOW basis.

Where does the time go? Another year passed before I could get your birthday greeting out.

Cracking a Birthday Joke | Huge List of Funny Birthday Messages and Wishes

generic birthday wishes

A birthday is a special day that only comes once a year, unless you are a Leap Year baby. When you or someone you know is celebrating a birthday, it is a chance to celebrate the day they were born. You can write them some cute happy birthday quotes or wishes.

Birthdays are very special occasions and in some ways are more special than generic holidays that are celebrated by everyone. This is because a birthday celebrates one person, who is special to many people including friends, family members, and co-workers. A birthday is also a great opportunity for the celebrant’s friends and family members to show how much they love this person.

These days, people can often be in a rush even on special occasions. It can be common for people to just say “happy birthday” to someone who is celebrating their birthday. Simply saying “happy birthday” is better than saying nothing. At the same time, it is a very generic thing to say.

 

When thinking of a message for someone’s birthday, do not be afraid to be sentimental. A birthday is one of the few occasions where you can get away with being mushy.

Each person has their own unique personality, so you will want to keep that in mind when choosing the perfect birthday quote. You will also want to consider the relationship that you have with this person and think about the message that you want to convey.

You can use one of the many happy birthday quotes below to wish your birthday celebrant a happy birthday. These quotes can also be used to inspire you to create your own special happy birthday message that is special and genuine.

From mushy and thoughtful words to words that are short, sweet, and to the point, you will find just the right birthday wishes for that special person.
