Birthdays are a pretty big deal because they’re the one day a year that’s all about those special people that mean so much to us. Picking out the perfect card is one thing, but what about the message inside? Some of us may be inclined to pick up a pen and write out a heartfelt sentiment with no problem, while others have trouble finding more to say than a simple “happy birthday.” No matter where you are on the scale, here are some tips on what to write on a birthday card.
If you feel like your card would be better left with something short and sweet, here are some phrases for a birthday card you can use in this scenario. Adding a little extra personality and warmth without being too wordy can go a long way.
Picking out a personalized card is an easy way to let the card do most of the writing for you. These simple messages can be added inside for a little extra thought and personalization so that the recipient knows you were thinking about them.
Whether you’ve missed a birthday because of being busy, memory lapse, or any other reason, it’s always nice to send a card once you remember. The saying goes, “better late than never,” right? Here’s how to write happy birthday wishes in a belated birthday card.
Choosing whether or not to include the belated portion is entirely up to you. You can also find cards made specifically for this that’ll send the message for you.
What to write in a birthday card for your parents depends entirely on your relationship with them. For the most part, appreciation, love, and happy wishes will be your best bet. You can keep it heartfelt and add in a special memory or make it more upbeat with some humor and portray the best birthday card messages with these ideas. And of course, make sure to include a note mentioning “with love“
Birthdays are always bittersweet when it comes to your own children. You’re sad they’re growing up but also excited to watch them mature. Adding a special message is a great way to show them just how much they mean to you. Keeping it short and sweet is the key here because they’ll probably be excited to open presents and get through the card part quickly.
Not every adult likes to be reminded of how old they are, but kids certainly do. If your card doesn’t have their age on it somewhere, be sure to include it somewhere in your message.
If the birthday is being celebrated by your significant other, it’s time to get creative and make the most out of it. Adding in some flirtatious fun might make them blush, but they’ll definitely remember these birthday wishes. If your relationship is more serious, you can take this opportunity to strengthen it even more. Here are some messages to write in birthday cards for that special someone in your life.
Using a nickname will instantly make your birthday card more personal. Be sure to use personalized words that spruce up your card. If you can’t find a card that you think is perfect for your special someone, use this opportunity to make the most out of a blank card.
Birthdays are the perfect time to make those special people in your life feel even more loved. A quick message to let them know you’re thinking of them on their birthday will bring a smile to their face and warmth to their heart.
