What to write in a birthday card - Cupcake

You’re struggling for what to write in a Birthday card aren’t you? Well, you probably wouldn’t be here if you had already written it.

So, you must be sitting, staring at the 10th birthday card you have bought this year already. Wondering whether you should put the same message in this card as you have done in the last 9 cards.

Don’t be that guy/girl! It is boring and looks like you have put no effort into the Birthday card, especially if you bought a generic, unexciting card from your local supermarket.

This article covers the following birthday wishes:

Spice it up a bit! Firstly, you will need to take time in picking the best / funniest card for your recipient. It is a dull moment when you open a card on your 30th birthday which blankly reads “Happy Birthday”.

Now our little rant is out of the way, we will get onto the most personal part of giving someone a Birthday card… What to write inside!

We will start off with a few classics that you have read a hundred times.

Classic wishes to write in a birthday card

We’ll start by giving you some loving Birthday card messages. Or wet as we would like to call them. These are the type of messages you may send to a close family member or friend:
