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.
Happy 50th birthday! I wish you a wonderfully happy day and an even more incredible year as the world's sexiest 50 year old.

Now that you're 50... By Message Guy
The years have passed,
Since you entered our lives,
Now that you're 50,
We can't believe our eyes.
The way you look,
The way to act,
Makes us just think,
You've turned back time.
You're fun-loving nature,
Simply continues to grow,
You light up a room,
Wherever you go.
We know when you're 100,
You'll still love life as such,
That's what we want for you,
Since we love you very much.

Happy birthday to someone who's niftier at 50 than any person has the right to be.
Happy birthday to someone who’s more fabulous at 50 than ever.
Happy birthday to someone who's 50 in body and ageless in mind.
When you turn the absolutely fab 5-0, it's time to just go with the flow (if you still can). Happy birthday!
Happy birthday! May the next 50 years of your life be as fabulous as the first 50.
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!

This is one of my top picks because it takes advantage of something I love...puns. The words themselves also go perfectly with the image. Even better, the overall message is that, at 50, you need to take chances and live your life to the fullest...all in a lighthearted way. Humor is often the best way to convey serious, thought-provoking messages. This birthday wish is a perfect example of this approach. ◄ Read less

Message Guy Tip #7: How to personalize birthday wishes for your husband or wife
Personalizing the 50th birthday wishes (right above) for your husband or wife is easier than you think! Want to know how?

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…
50 years in and you’re still younger at heart than many people young in calendar years. May you stay forever young the next 50 years. Happy birthday!
50 years in and you’re still stronger, younger at heart and handsomer than anyone we know. May we stay forever young and forever happy together the next 50 years. Happy birthday! I love you!
Your (Term of Endearment)
50 years in and you’re still sexier, younger at heart and prettier than anyone we know. May we stay forever young and forever happy together the next 50 years. Happy birthday! I love you!
