Message Guy Tip #37: How to choose 50th birthday wishes
50 is one of the milestone birthdays we celebrate big. Figuring out what message to send can be difficult. Should it be something philosophical? Inspirational? Funny? It depends a little bit on what you want to say. Mostly, though, it depends on the personality of the birthday boy or girl.
Go the funny route with people who can laugh at themselves. Take the serious path with those who can't. Whatever you choose to do, have fun.
You're not only nifty at 50 — you're a spiffy, gritty, thrifty, lofty and, when no one’s around, frisky 50 year old. Happy 50th birthday!
Happy 50th birthday just doesn't say enough. “Happy 50th-half century-my back aches-I’m just starting to enjoy life-you look so good-I wish I was you-birthday” is more like it.
At 50, you can still do what any 20 year old can do: fall in love, dance all night, play every sport, eat and drink like a king and that f-word we all know but hardly ever say in public (you know, fart). Happy 50th birthday!
At 50, you're not old. You're worn-out, impatient, jaded, set in your ways and weathered... but you're not old. Happy 50th birthday!
Time is even more of the essence when you turn 50. Make every minute count. Spend every waking moment chasing after your dreams—you know, the kind you have when you nap.
Everything good comes to those who turn 50. Good food. Good wine. Good friends. Good love. Happy 50th birthday!

50th birthday messages for your husband or wife should first be romantic. By romantic, I mean that you should show how much you love your partner.
Of course, the romantic route is the way to go at any age. How you show your feelings is pretty much up to you but the more heartwarming, the better. Nobody ever overdosed from too much romance.
But you shouldn't stop at romance. When people turn 50, they tend to need a jolt of inspiration, especially if they’re in the throes of a very bad mid-life crisis.
Don’t skimp here — a serious dose of inspiration is a must-have in any birthday message.
Below are two examples that show how you can change one of the generic 50th birthday wishes on this page to one for your husband or wife…
