You can also take a line from one birthday wish and combine it with a line from another to make a unique and meaningful birthday message for your loved one.

Your perfect birthday wish might not be under the section you are looking for so be sure to look around!

What is the best message for birthday?

Birthday messages simply aren’t one size fits all. So when it comes to writing the best message for a birthday you need options and inspiration. You can use our birthday wishes as they are or simply use them to give you some inspiration to create your own birthday message.

These messages are perfect if you want to send something simple, heartfelt, funny, or maybe even a little bit cheeky.  We have covered every type of birthday for every type of person so you will never be stuck for a birthday message!

What is a unique way to wish happy birthday?

Most birthday wishes are written on a birthday card but it’s not always easy to send a card. You can also wish a happy birthday via text, social media, or do something creative and different.

All of our birthday wishes can also be sent via text or social media but you can also digitally send one of our free happy birthday images! You can also print these too.

One of my favorite ways to wish a happy birthday to grandmas, grandpas, or mummy and daddy is to send happy birthday coloring printables that the children have colored. It means a lot more for them to receive a birthday wish that has taken time and love to create from the children, rather than a store-bought card.


Printable happy birthday coloring pages are also great for children to give to their friends too. Check out our range of free printable happy birthday coloring pages!

What is a good birthday wish?

A good birthday wish is something that encapsulates your relationship perfectly. Our birthday wishes are perfect for any kind of relationship whether that’s a romantic relationship, a crazy friendship, a professional relationship, or simply a special relationship.

Belated Happy Birthday Wishes

Sometimes we forget to wish someone a happy birthday because let’s face it. Life is busy and we are only human. But just because you’ve forgotten it was someone’s birthday, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t wish them a happy birthday when you remember. Better late than never (unless it was six months ago)!

You might find that some friends or family might take offense or become upset if you forget their birthday so we’ve gathered some of our favorite belated birthday messages that can help you turn that frown upside down.

How do you wish someone a belated birthday?

There are different ways of wishing someone a belated birthday. You can be apologetic and sincere or you can be funny and make light of the situation.

You will know how best to approach the situation but let these belated birthday messages help you smooth things over if you’ve missed a birthday. I would also sweeten things up with some flowers or a thoughtful gift.

How long can you say belated birthday?

I’d recommend you say your belated birthday message as soon as you realize you’ve missed their birthday. This makes it much easier for you to wish them a happy birthday without feeling weird if too much time has passed.

Some people suggest up to three or four weeks to send a belated birthday wish but it can really depend on how important the birthday is such as a milestone birthday. Some birthdays are rare such as the bigger milestones (80,90,100) so even if you are late, they will still appreciate a message and a big bunch of flowers!

Try out these belated birthday messages for your loved ones.

  1. I know you had lots of birthday wishes on your actual birthday but who’s thinking of you today? Me, that’s who! Belated happy birthday!
  2. Damn. I missed your birthday.
  3. I am slow but I didn’t forget! Belated happy birthday!
  4. Happy birthday to a special friend, though a little late. I hope you enjoyed your day.
  5. Happy birthday! I’m not late, I’m just extending the celebration!
  6. Sorry, I missed your birthday. My calendar was still flipped to march!
  7. I remembered that I forgot your birthday.
  8. Belated happy birthday. I was saving the best for last.
  9. The absolute cheek of the mailman to deliver this late!
  10. I hope this arrived fashionably late!
  11. Stop changing your birthday and making me look bad!
  12. Oops! I missed your birthday!
  13. I can’t believe I missed your birthday, because you’re too special to ever forget.
  14. Happy belated birthday my love. May all your wishes come true!
  15. Biden my time to wish you a happy birthday!
  16. Sending you your traditional late birthday wishes
  17. Better late than never!
  18. Let’s just pretend this was on time
  19. To me, every single day is just as special as your birthday. You are equally important to me every day in a year. Happy birthday.
  20. Always late but worth the wait!
  21. Late birthday wishes are better than a late period!
  22. I forgot. Sorry!
  23. This is the first time I missed your birthday but I can promise you this is also the last time. Happy birthday and I send you many happy wishes.

Remember, if it’s not possible to send a card then you can also send a simple text or WhatsApp message. Even a social media message will do the trick! Just let your loved ones know you care and you’re sorry your birthday wishes are late.

Happy Birthday Wishes For Your Boss And Colleagues

Birthdays don’t stop when you get to work, even your boss or colleagues will have a birthday that falls on a workday! Some businesses like to keep birthdays quiet and leave personal life at the door, others enjoy celebrating their birthday at work.

Whether you want to send a low-key birthday wish or make a party out of it, we have some great ideas for you.

How do you say happy birthday to your boss?

A birthday can be a great way to let your boss know how much they mean to you. You can use this as an opportunity to tell them how supportive they’ve been or how much they inspire you.

When it comes to wishing your boss a happy birthday, you can keep it simple and formal or fun and friendly. It all depends on the professional and personal relationship you keep.

What do you write in a birthday card for a colleague?

We have a great choice of happy birthday messages for you to choose from when it comes to a colleague’s birthday. These messages are a great way to help your colleague feel appreciated and valued on their birthdays and range from fun formal to more intimate.

I’ve found from experience that beforehand, the office will each chip in some money to purchase a group card and gift. This is a great idea if you’re not close to the colleague but can leave a meaningful message with everyone else rather than being singled out.

  1. Happy birthday to our amazing boss from your amazing team
  2. Chance made us colleagues, choice made us friends
  3. Happy birthday! I hope you see lots of success in the year to come.
  4. Happy birthday! I hope you get the chance to rest a bit and enjoy the day.
  5. Happy birthday to my favorite coworker! (and not just because I hate everybody else)
  6. Happy birthday to the queen of remote working!
  7. Happy birthday work bae
  8. If employees were flowers, I’d pick you!
  9. A party without alcohol is just a meeting!
  10. Happy birthday lovely colleague! I’d say co-worker but that implies you actually do some work.
  11. Happy birthday to the world’s okayest boss!
  12. Happy birthday to my amazing work wife
  13. Happy birthday boss lady

How do you celebrate someone’s birthday at work?

If you are close to the colleague and consider yourself friends, you can bring them a card and gift into the office or take them out for lunch during the lunch break. For other colleagues, discuss with your co-workers about chipping it for a card and gift and also a birthday cake for lunchtime.


Before I was married to my husband we were actually coworkers and friends. For his birthday I went to work early and put birthday banners up around his desk space along with a card and gift on his desk. I also placed party hats on everyone else’s desk so they could acknowledge his birthday in a simple and fun way. I did this out of my own pocket because I considered him a friend and he was really touched by it (and a little embarrassed).

Milestone Happy Birthday Wishes

What is a milestone birthday?

A milestone birthday is a birthday that deserves a little more attention than a simple birthday wish. It is the perfect excuse for friends and family to come together to celebrate and tends to be a bigger celebration.

Milestone birthdays start at the 1st birthday and generally include 16, 18, 21, and then every decade after. An easy way to remember a milestone birthday is after 21, if it ends in a zero, it’s a milestone.

As adults get older, they tend to stop celebrating each individual birthday but focus on a milestone birthday to have a large celebration.

We covered all of the milestone birthdays and we have even included 13 as a milestone because for many kids, turning 13 is a pretty big deal!

1st birthday wishes

First birthdays are such a special occasion because they celebrate the first year of a little one’s life. Throughout the first year of a baby’s life, they develop, learn and grow so much and it is such a big stage for both baby and parents.

If you’re ready to celebrate a baby’s first birthday and you’re looking for the perfect and sweetest message, then take a look at these.

What do you write in a 1st birthday card?

Babies can’t read but parents can so opt for a card that is cute, fun, and sweet. We have a selection of short and sweet birthday messages that will make that first birthday a little bit more special.

  1. Happy birthday bambino
  2. Smash that cake, little ONE
  3. Enjoy your special day. You deserve a lifetime of happiness.
  4. Your first year has flown by so quickly. Please try not to grow up too fast!
  5. Hope you get spoiled on your first birthday!
  6. My darling, when you grow up I want you to know that your sweetness filled our hearts and your babbling was the sweetest song we heard. Happy first birthday dear.

What do you do for a 1st birthday?

Although a first birthday is considered a milestone, you don’t need to celebrate with a big party. Many parents don’t quite know what to do for the first birthday but there are options.

A common way of celebrating the first birthday is simply by spending time together and enjoying each other. My family is scattered around the country so for my daughter’s first birthday we decorated the house, wrapped her presents, and surprised her when she woke up. We also shared cake together and a nice tea. 

Although a first birthday is a celebration for your baby’s birthday, it’s also a celebration for the parents too. You have achieved and grown so much throughout this first year and you deserve a standing ovation.

Another way of celebrating the first birthday is to organize a party! You can gather all of your family around, decorate for your baby and have a party including photo ops, smash cake, and fun activities.

A party is great if you also have younger relatives that can play with your baby and get involved. Just make sure the event isn’t too overwhelming for your little one. At the end of the day, they don’t need a party, they just need you.

13th Birthday wishes

Is turning 13 a milestone?

Turning 13 isn’t considered a milestone birthday but to a child, turning thirteen is a pretty big deal! When a child turns thirteen they officially become a teenager which can mean a lot of changes for them including more responsibility, freedom, and personal changes and growth.

Many families like to celebrate the thirteenth birthday as a milestone, including a big party and maybe more expensive gifts that require additional responsibility such as a cell phone or even a pet. 

How do you wish someone a 13th birthday?

Becoming a teenager is such an exciting time and is the start of a fun adventure. If you’re looking for a birthday message for a teenager that is meaningful, funny, or relatable then we have some amazing ideas!

  1. You’re just a TEENAGE dirtbag, baby.
  2. OMG, You’re 13! Have a fantastic day!
  3. Lucky thirteen looks good on you! Happy 13th birthday!
  4. Happy birthday! You’re officially a teenager!
  5. Shine like the birthday star you are!
  6. Since you only get to turn 13 once in your lifetime, I hope today is one of the happiest days of your life. Happy 13th.
  7. You are the nicest human in the world ever and I love you a lot. #justsayin’
  8. I bought you a present but the dog ate it.
  9. My advice to you as you enter your 13th year: You are special and important just the way you are. Grow into yourself but don’t let the world change you. Happy birthday.

  11. The biggest gift that God gave me apart from life is you. Thank you for bringing all the happiness that exists in this world into my heart.
  12. Live young, wild, and free. I wish you happiness!

Sweet 16 birthday wishes

Why is 16 an important birthday?

In America, the sixteenth birthday for a girl is also known as a sweet 16 and resembles the coming of age. At the age of sixteen, a girl takes the first step into womanhood and takes on many responsibilities such as driving and getting a job.

Obviously, celebrating the 16th birthday isn’t just for the ladies so don’t forget about your sons when it comes to making a sixteenth a special event!

Twenty-first Birthday Wishes

21st birthdays are such a great birthday to celebrate and are just as special as an eighteenth. In the USA, twenty-one-year-olds are legally permitted to buy alcohol, buy cigarettes and enter nightclubs.

In the UK, 21-year-olds were traditionally given the key to the house which is why nowadays it is customary to give a “key” as a gift on a 21st birthday.

Thirtieth Birthday Wishes

Why is 30th birthday special?

A thirtieth birthday is one of those birthdays that can cause a range of different reactions and emotions. For many, thirty is the final transition into adulthood and the age where you finally reach maturity and this can cause sad feelings. Thirty isn’t old but it is an age where people start to realize that they aren’t getting any younger.

I actually turn 30 next year, and I don’t know how to feel about it. It’s not that I dread turning thirty, it just feels like my 20’s disappeared right before my eyes. I think the best thing to do when turning thirty is to embrace it. Take on your thirties with a different perspective and aim to achieve great things. You never know, your thirties might be your best decade yet!

What do you write on a 30th birthday card?

Because turning thirty can be a tender time for some people, we have some meaningful birthday messages to use that can ease the blow. Alternatively, you can go head-on with some hard humor to celebrate their 30th! It all depends on the recipient and the kind of person they are.

  1. 30 years of being a legend!
  2. Your twenties have expired
  3. Flirty at thirty! Happy birthday!
  4. Happy 30th birthday to a true friend and truly nice person.
  5. You’re 30? If that’s not the cause for alcohol, I don’t know what is!
  6. Bad news. You’re 30. Good news. I’m not.
  7. Your twenties were so yesterday.
  8. Talk thirty to me!
  9. Turning 30 doesn’t mean you can’t still party. It just means you’ve gotten really good at it! Happy Birthday!
  10. Thirty, flirty and thriving
  11. Age is just a number, but 30 is a great one! Enjoy your day, and Happy Birthday!
  12. Thirty. Like twenty but requiring more sleep.

What is the traditional gift for a 60th birthday?

60 is an important milestone and so has its own traditional gift. Just like a 60th wedding anniversary, the gift for reaching the 60th birthday is the Diamond. 

For some people, purchasing diamonds for someone’s birthday is a big ask, and some people might not even want diamonds! If this is the case, you can opt for something that represents a diamond or simply get them a gift they will truly love. If your mom would prefer a breadmaker over a diamond bracelet, get her the breadmaker!

We all know you’re the only diamond she needs anyway, right!?

How do you celebrate someone’s 100th birthday?

As reaching 100 is such an incredible achievement, the best way to celebrate would be to gather the celebrant’s family and friends and spend some special time together. Someone who has lived 100 years has seen so much but all they really want now is those that mean the most to them.

Here are some lovely ideas on how to celebrate 100 years of age!

  • A grand gesture such as 100 flowers, 100 cupcakes, or 100 balloons!
  • A timeline of photos and memories from the celebrants life and display them
  • Let every guest recall their favorite memory of the celebrant
  • Play video birthday wishes from the people who couldn’t be there
  • Go back in time and play music from their favorite decade

One of the greatest perks of reaching 100 is receiving a letter from the queen, president, or prime minister of your country. You can do this on behalf of the celebrant.

UK

If you are a British national you will automatically receive a letter from the Queen as you turn 100. This will be sent using your details on the state pension or benefit record, however, if you do not use such records you can easily apply for a birthday message from the Queen.

USA

American nationals can receive greetings from the currently serving president of the United States of America. Nationals can request greetings for birthdays of 80 years + (70 for Veterans) and also for the birth of babies! Learn how to request a greeting from POTUS but give yourself plenty of time!

AUS

Australians can receive special greetings from up to three important officials – the Prime Minister, Governer-General, or The Queen. You need to request these greetings as they aren’t sent out automatically but it is so simple to request a birthday greeting from the Prime minister.

CANADA

If you are a Canadian citizen you can request a special message from the Prime Minister from as young as 85! Just be sure to apply well in advance!

Long Distance Birthday Wishes

It isn’t always possible for us to be with the ones we love on their birthday. That could simply be because we have other commitments that can’t be rescheduled or because we have to love them from a distance.

If you have a long-distance relationship with a friend or family member then you can still send beautiful and meaningful birthday wishes from afar!

How do you wish happy birthday in long distance?

Long-distance birthday wishes are best if they are sincere and heartfelt. It might be bittersweet for someone celebrating their birthday without their favorite person with them so send them a special birthday wish to show how much you care.

  1. Sending you a long distance hug on your birthday
  2. I love you each and every day, even though you’re far away.
  3. Happy birthday! You’re my favorite person to text 47 times per day!
  4. Happy birthday, I can’t wait to squeeze you again!
  5. Cheers to you on your birthday! I’ll be raising a glass in your honor. Maybe even three or four…
  6. Happy birthday. I hope you know that the long distance between us doesn’t make you any less special in my heart.
  7. My love for you stretches even further than the many miles between us!
  8. I wanted to send you something amazing but the mailman told me to get out of the mailbox.
  9. I put some extra hugs and kisses in this card. You might not see them, but they’re there!
  10. You are close to my heart, now and always. Lots of love to you on your special day!
  11. Even though we’re miles apart, we always connect by the heart
  12. To make up for the distance I’m sending your birthday wishes with extra kisses.
  13. Distance means so little when someone means so much. Happy birthday!
  14. This physical distance can’t keep us apart, because to me, you’re right here always dear in my heart.
  15. Even though I can’t share your special day with you in person this year, bestie, I’m sending you my best wishes from a distance.
  16. Sending from afar, the loveliest of birthday wishes to the loveliest person today!
  17. We may not see each other very often, but trust me. You’re still my favorite.
  18. Whether together or miles apart, you will always be close to my heart because you are my world. Happy birthday.

How do you celebrate a long distance birthday?

Even though you can’t be there in person, you can still celebrate with your loved one from a distance. 

Consider having a virtual celebration using an app such as zoom, WhatsApp, or even facetime. You can dedicate time to have an hour together, sharing laughs, toasting, and maybe having a little cake on either end. If you have family, then get them involved too if it’s suitable!

It doesn’t beat being there in person, but the extra effort will be really appreciated and it will make their day.

Sisters can be the sweetest relatives to have and are loved by sibling brothers and sisters around the world.  If you’re lucky enough to have a sister you will want to send a beautiful birthday message that lets them know just how much they mean to you.

What can I say to my sister on her birthday?

Send a humorous, personal or sentimental message to your sister this year. The choice depends on how your sister feels around her birthday or her relationship with you. I tend to opt for something funny for my sister because we have a tongue-in-cheek relationship.

I love having a daughter. I knew she would be my love from the moment she was born and although she is four now, we consider each other best friends.

Son Birthday Wishes

I love having a son. Although he is challenging, he is funny, cute, affectionate, and warm. Boys are so different from girls, it’s true. But that doesn’t make them any less special.

It is such a blessing to have a child that you love so much and loves in return and I see that every day with my son. If you have a son you know what I’m talking about!

When it is your son’s birthday make sure it is all about him. Express your love, gratitude, and fondness and watch his smile light up the room.

What can I write to my son on his birthday?

My son is only two, so I don’t have much experience in writing his birthday cards yet. However, I know that it is important for him to hear how much he means to me, and how special and loved he is. That’s why we have some really gorgeous meaningful birthday wishes for a son to choose from.

I also know from having male relatives that boys can be pretty cheeky and humorous so I’ve included some fun birthday messages you can use!

  1. Son, there is only one you. But that’s okay. One is all we can handle.
  2. Happy birthday fabulous firstborn
