Sons are the perfect blend of wonder, warmth, joy and love. But figuring out what to write for them is hard. The young ones care more about their gifts. The older ones dislike “mushy” messages. You could write almost anything for adult sons.
The best route? A mix of cute and happy...with a touch of the sentimental (and a sprinkle of pride). Simply start with an option below that best captures your feelings...and go from there.
Son, you’re our greatest blessing. May your
birthday and all your tomorrows be blessed with everything good in life!
Loving you, son, is our greatest joy. You make
it so easy. Happy birthday, dear boy!
We've always been proud of you. Now more than
ever, our hearts are bursting with pride, because you've grown into a remarkable person — so full of love, caring and joy. Happy birthday, dear, dear boy!
Son, you are a shining example of everything
that’s right in this world. May your future be as bright, starting with your
special day. Happy birthday!
Words are simply not enough to express how amazing
I feel to have you as my son. I love you. You make my life
complete. Happy birthday, son!
Need help? We’ll be there. Celebrating? We’ll be
there. Just want to talk? Count on us to be there. It’s not because we have
lots of time — we have lots for you. Happy birthday, son!

Some sons are not very comfortable with birthday wishes that are too cute or heartwarming. For them, you may want to dial back the sentiment a little. Choosing shorter, more lighthearted “happy” birthday messages may be a better way to go.
Here are lots of examples you may want to use outright or tweak:
Happy birthday, son! May this year be your best ever!
Son, hope your birthday is as incredible as you!
May your birthday be filled with lots of cake, gifts and cheer!
Your future looks so bright. Happy birthday, son!
Have a great special day. Son, you deserve the best-ever birthday!
Wishing you a very happy birthday and wonderful year!
Thanks for being a great son. Happy birthday!
Enjoy every moment of your birthday…and every piece of your cake.
Happy birthday, our remarkable young man!
On your special day, hope you get everything you wish for…and more!
