If your client expects the personal touch, sending a generic birthday wish will just seem disingenuous to him or her. Keep in mind: most clients think they're doing you a favor by giving you business. In turn, many expect some level of gratitude mixed into your client birthday wishes.
To help you make the appropriate choice, I have suggested the different types of client birthday wishes you should use based on the type of clients you may have (based on this SmashingMagazine.com article):
The Passive-Aggressive: Pick a clever, happy or cool birthday wish.
The Family Friend:Choose a cute, sentimental or happy birthday message.
The Under-Valuer: Select a happy birthday verse.
The Nit-Picker: Select a clever or cool birthday message.
The Scornful Saver: Same as above.
The “I-Could-Do-This-Myself”-er: Opt for an inspirational, funny, cool or clever birthday verse.
The Control Freak: Select a clever or cool birthday message.
The Dream Client: Go for a cute, inspirational, sentimental, funny or happy birthday wish (any type you want, basically).

Above are only my suggestions. You know your customers best, so you are the best judge of appropriate client birthday wishes for them.
If all else fails, keep this rule of thumb in mind: use your birthday wishes for clients as a concrete, personal (but not too personal) way to express your gratitude for their business. ◄ Read less

This type of message (expressed three distinct ways below) only makes your birthday greetings all the more special for any client celebrating their birthday.
