12th Birthday Wishes

The best 12th birthday wishes, like the birthday messages on this page, are as unique and diverse as the 12-year-old birthday boy or girl you would like to make happy (with one of your own birthday greetings).

What makes the 12th birthday greetings here so unique?

The 12th birthday messages on this page have cracked what's commonly known as the the "tweenspeak" code — the ability to speak like a 12 year old without sounding like a middle-aged hipster.

For tweeners (children aged 10 to 12), knowing "tweenspeak" is an absolute must if you want to get your birthday messages across to them. And it's vital that you gift-wrap this pre-teen mode of communication with a pretty bow, so they don't feel like you're patronizing them.

Hence, every message here follows the "tweenspeak" code.

Want to check out a few helpful hints on how to pick birthday wishes for 12 year olds? Just take a quick look at my tips for choosing 10th birthday messages, which are equally as good for selecting 12th birthday greetings — since kids aged 10 and 12 are tweens who speak the same language: tweenspeak. 

Twelve cheers for you! You're 12 today and, better yet, for the next 365 days too. Enjoy every second of this special age.

The birthday wish below does everything a birthday wish is supposed to do—but in a special way for kids turning 12. That's what I love about it. What exactly does it do?

Mainly, this birthday wish makes "turning 12" a milestone, which is an accomplishment, considering it's not a milestone birthday at all. It's a "tween" birthday.

Why? 12 is called a tween age for a reason: at 12, you're not a little kid anymore, nor are you a teenager yet—you're in between (hence, you're a tweener).

That means turning 12 is not really a milestone but who wants to think their birthday isn't important. Nobody. The birthday wish makes turning 12 significant by showing how important 12 is in our world. If I was 12, that would work for me.

Happy 12th birthday! So many great things come in 12s: months in a year, inches in a foot, donuts, eggs, roses, hours on a clock, zodiac signs, members of a jury, drummers drumming, birthstones and, most importantly, you.
