Ideas Of What To Write In A Birthday Message

For those of you that aren’t that great with the words and normally just sign a card with your name, it’s time to rethink that tactic.

You don’t have to be a poet or a literary genius to make someone’s day with a special birthday message, occasionally something short and snappy will do the trick just fine. 

Here are just a few of the messages you can include in your message to that special birthday person:

“Wherever the year ahead takes you, I hope it’s happy.” 

“Wishing you the biggest slice of happy today.”

“Thinking of you on your birthday and wishing you everything happy.” 

“Hope your birthday is as special as you are.” 

“Wishing you a very happy birthday and many more to come. Hope it’s a good one.”
