Message Guy Tip #75: How to choose granddaughter birthday wishes...
Granddaughters are special — that goes without saying, I guess. And I don't think I really need to tell you just how special they are. You know more than I do (I'm not a grandfather) But, as a writer, I do need to remind you that their "specialness" should have an impact on your choice of granddaughter birthday wishes. Unfortunately, there's no "one size fits all" kind of birthday wishes for granddaughters.
So how should you proceed? The first thing...

You have to take a closer look at your granddaughter and ask yourself: what type of birthday greeting will truly make her feel special? Sure, you can just pick a standard (read: generic) birthday verse and be done with it. That's the safe, easy way out. But it won't make your granddaughter feel so special.
Generally speaking, the young ones care more about the gift you'll give them, so stick to kid-oriented birthday greeting. With the older ones (read: teenaged ones), you have to take that "closer look" I mentioned above.
How should you proceed? Basically, you need to realize that your granddaughter communicates on a whole different level than you, so knowing how to relate to her may help you choose a birthday message that will do the trick.
To help you, I found an article with tips on building a great relationship with your teen granddaughter. The tips may provide you with real insight into her mind.

Now that you have a better idea of your granddaughter's mindset, consider the following and I bet you'll be able to pick the right granddaughter birthday messages in no time at all.
Your granddaughter birthday wishes should do the following:
Include what's "hot" and exclude what's "not so hot."
Show that you truly listen to her and her needs.
Share a common interest you have with her.
Accept her apology, if you and her had an argument.
Let her know that you've learned important lessons from her.
Show that you know her and what she likes.
Show her that she's always on your mind.
Let the inner grandparent come out if she's the sort who would let you.
Let her know that the little things you do with her are special to you.
Overall, what’s the best style? Probably a mix of cute and happy...with a touch of the sentimental (and the right amount of pride in everything she does). Simply start with one or more of the birthday greetings below that best captures your feelings...and add your personal touch, if neccessary.
