Hanging out with you is a cure to all problems; you make my world a better place and all I want is for you to find true happiness in life.

I’ll always be here for you; I’ll always care for you, and forever wish you only the best.
My true and best friend,
you’re a ray of light in
anyone’s life. Thank you
for being so truly awesome!

And may this special and
very auspicious day bring
you much joy and love.

Happy birthday! Wishing
you the best, and may our
friendship last forever!
You are a true friend, the best companion for all kinds of adventures, and you are also a great man.

I admire you and see you as a huge inspiration, and I have only life and the universe to thank for bringing us together.

Happy birthday, my dear friend! May all the joy in the world live in your heart, today and always.

Wherever and whenever you need something you just have to look for me, call my name, and I’ll be there.
With you I’ve shared some of the most wonderful memories, and most of them we shall not talk about out loud.

But seriously, thanks for being such a good friend to me, and please, be happy! Especially today, the day to end all days, your birthday.

Wishing you joy and all the good stuff you so rightfully deserve!
To the best of all friends,
the most outrageously
and utterly funny, I
wish all the happiness
in the world, and a truly
amazing day. Have a
joyous bday, my man!
My dear friend, since we met you’ve been
there for me through every step, every
stumble, every celebration. I assure you
that I intend to do nothing less than the
same for you, too.

Any time you need me, I’ll be there, for
the good, the great and the not so great
too. And, of course, for the birthdays!

Have a wonderful day, my friend! Be
happy, for you’re starting another year
in this world.
You are truly and utterly beautiful, and each year you’re getting better and better. Time is your friend, no doubt, but so am I, and today all I want is for you to be happy, to smile a lot and find it in your heart to appreciate life to its fullest.

Happy birthday, dear!
Happy birthday to my partner in crime!

Sometimes mischievous, always great fun, you are my rock that gets me through each school day! Thank you for keeping me sane through all of the boring classes, and for making the great ones even greater!

Today I hope you enjoy all the happiness possible, and I wish for all your dreams to come true! My dear school friend, you will always be my best friend!
I can still remember when we were
both fresh-faced and new to our
school. Neither of us knew anyone
and everything seemed quite daunting.

But then we started talking, and I
quickly realised I had found my new
best friend! 

You made everything seem less
intimidating and you were always there
to support me through anything, and
you still are in fact.

I’m so lucky that my oldest school friend
is still my very best friend, and always
will be! 

Wishing you all the happiness on your
special day! Happy birthday!
Party, check. Cake, check. Candles, check. Gifts, check. Wait, I’m forgetting something. Oh yeah, best friend, check! Have the greatest of days!
You’re not only my girlfriend but also my best friend. In you, I found everything I was looking for. Wishing you the best and a wonderful birthday!

Another year older, another cake to eat!

You wake up one day and realize that this day is more special than other days ... it's your bestie's bday! So, obviously you have to blow up her Facebook and Instagram with all the best happy birthday quotes to get her feeling special the moment she wakes up.

Your best friend is one of the most special people in your life. She has been there with you for so many memories both good and bad.

You have had wild times getting into some fun trouble and being partners in crime. You have had amazing experiences maybe traveling or going through life stages together. And you have been supportive through all of the hard times that both of you have come by.

The bottom line is your best friend is so important to you and you want to show them that you always care.

You could bake them a cake. If it were my best friend I would want vanilla with buttercream frosting *cough cough*.

You could get them an awesome gift, maybe something she has been hinting at for a while. Or something sentimental that would make her smile. Or you could take her out, drinks, dinner all of that fun stuff.

It can be tough to celebrate your bestie's bday if you are far apart.

If you are in Philadelphia and your best friend lives in Boston it can be tough to get up there to see her if you both have busy schedules. But that doesn't mean you still can't do something special!

Sending her a quote or a message just to show that you care is a great way to just warm her heart. It doesn't have to be anything big or fancy to be special. You can just say a few small things and the rest will be taken care of.

If you are running out of funny, sweet or sentimental birthday wishes for your number one, look no further!

We have got a whole list of funny happy birthday quotes and wishes for you to share with your very best friend!

A little gray hair is a small price to pay for so much wisdom.

You know you're getting old when the little old gray-haired lady you helped across the street is your wife.

I wanted to get you something truly amazing and inspiring for your birthday and then I remembered that you already have me.
