Dad birthday wishes as unique as your Dad let him know just how special he is to you. Here, you'll find only one-of-a-kind birthday messages for your father. The best kind. Anything less just wouldn't do.
When my father was alive, he loved (and was always grateful) to receive birthday wishes from friends and family alike. He really appreciated that everyone took the time to wish him well on his special day. He never took it for granted.
Your Dad will love to hear from you, too, especially when you choose a dad birthday message (from the examples below) that truly shows how you feel about him. I bet he won't take your birthday greeting for granted.
Message Guy Tip #61: How to select dad birthday wishes...
Dads are super special. A father is a wonderful combination of strength, warmth, kindness, laughter and love. So figuring out the message to pick, in a broad sense, is easy. Choose one that makes your Dad feel very special on his birthday. But that could mean different types of Dad birthday wishes. What type should you go with?
Should birthday messages for fathers be sentimental? Definitely. Inspirational? Yes, if your father needs a little boost. Funny? Sure, if your Dad likes a good laugh now and then. Cool or clever? Or both? Perhaps, if your father is a fan of puns and witty plays on words.
The key here is to choose one of those dad birthday wishes that do these three things:
The Dad birthday wishes you select should express how you really feel about your Dad. Don't pick a sentimental message because it's the thing to do. Your father has known you since birth, so he'll be able to smell false emotions from a mile away.
The Dad birthday wishes you pick should reflect your Dad's personality.
The Dad birthday wishes you pick should reflect your personality.
When one of the messages in this section meets all three of these conditions, you'll know it.
You are the greatest Dad in the world. If this was Father's Day, I would give you a tie. But it's your birthday, so I'll give you all my love, respect and affection, the ties that bind. Happy birthday!
Dad, happy birthday! You've always been an amazing father. Now, I'm glad to say, you're an even more amazing friend.
Dad, you're one in a million. No, one in a billion. Actually, one in a trillion. In other words, you're one of a kind. The best, most loving kind. Happy birthday!
Dad, you're the greatest. It's not just because you're there for me through good times and bad. It's also because you make the bad times good with your amazing love and support. Happy birthday!
The older I get, the more I realize that a Dad like you is as rare as a desert rose — and just as beautiful. I'm so grateful you're my Dad. Happy birthday to the best father anywhere.
Personally, I like to celebrate Father's Day twice a year — once on Father's Day and once more on my father's day, your birthday. And, Dad, you deserve it for being the best father ever. Happy birthday, Dadio!

Message Guy Pick
This is one of those special Dad Birthday Wishes. It was a tribute to my Dad five years after he passed away.
This is one of my top picks because it expresses how I personally felt five years after my own father passed away. I still feel the same way. I guess that's what makes this message so timeless.
In my mind (and heart), this message can be used anytime after you've lost your father, whether it's a year later or decades later.
Today is five years since you passed away. I think about you at least a hundred times a day. There’s so much I would like to say to you. So, if you have a Facebook account (with your e-mail notifications set properly), a half-decent wireless connection and the latest Windows version, sit back wherever you are and enjoy these two quotes (you know the first one because you often used it when I was 18):
“When I was 18, I thought my father was pretty dumb. After a while when I got to be 21, I was amazed to find out how much he'd learned in three years.”
~ Frank Butler
“I know I'm older now, but there's still that little lad inside me who likes his Dad there to see him.”
~ Jamie Redknapp
