Happy birthday! Wherever you are, I want to be. Wherever you go, I want to follow. Wherever you finish, I want to end up. 

Section: Romantic Wishes


Birthdays are nature's way of showing you that eating more cake is stupid, especially when you have to look in the mirror the next morning. Have a special (and carb-free) day!

Our love will never get old. That's because, together, we're forever young. May we always drink from the fountain of youth. Happy birthday, darling!

As far as fathers go, you’re simply awesome. Of course, I'm slightly biased since I'm your child, the recipient of your awesomeness. Happy birthday to the most awesome Dad!

For Any Age

You're one today...You're finally allowed to have your birthday cake and eat it — with your hands. Happy birthday!

Happy 16th birthday! You're truly amazing, truly unique, truly fun, truly independent, truly 16. Truly.

Happy birthday! Turning 40 is not so bad when you consider the alternative: turning 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 or 100.

When you turn 21, you can legally do what you've done illegally since you were 13. Let’s drink up!

Speaking of a half century, how are you? Feeling old today? Don’t — you’re as old and cool as the first Mustang built a half century ago! Happy 50th birthday!

It’s that time again…your 29th birthday! Happy birthday. You look so mature for your age.

For someone who's just turned 80, you only look a day over 79. Seriously, though, you look and act even younger than any 60 year old I know. Happy birthday!

Birthday Wishes
Any Type

People say that with age comes wisdom. I don’t know about you but I’d rather be young and stupid than old and wise. Happy birthday!

I thought about giving you something you’d treasure the rest of your life but what’s the point of spending money on a gift that’s only good for a few years. Happy birthday, old fart!

Don’t think about how old you are. Think how blessed you are. Think about all the experiences you've had in life—both good and bad—that have brought you this far. Here’s to life! Happy birthday!

On your special day, I have the perfect gift for you, a gift that’s guaranteed to get you through thick or thin, feast or famine, sink or swim and all or nothing: my undying love (and my credit card, if necessary). Happy birthday!

Sure, good friends remember your birthday and forget your age. But great friends remember your birthday and get you smashed to the point you forget your own age. Happy birthday! Let’s party, BFF!

If the love you take is equal to the love you make, you must be the world's most loved and loving person. I’m glad I get to bask in the sunshine of your love. Happy birthday!
