Hints & Tips
What are the best nephew birthday wishes?
You don't have to be the coolest aunt or uncle alive for your nephew to love you, but writing one-size-fits-all nephew birthday wishes won't win you any points with him.
Writing the right birthday messages for your nephew is actually an opportunity for you to let him know how much he means to you with words of joy, wonder, wisdom, hope or praise.
What's considered the best birthday greetings for nephews? Well...
Sending your nephew standard (in other words, ho-hum) birthday wishes is okay, but I don't recommend it. Sure, this is the easiest path to take (and it's a nice way to show how much you care), but you can do so much better, and your nephew likely deserves much better.
To make it simpler for you to craft perfect nephew birthday wishes, keep in mind that you have many birthday message styles to choose from, so you can select the one (or two or three or four or...) that's right for him.
Below is a list of the different kinds of nephews (generally speaking) — and the best types of nephew birthday wishes you should select for each kind:
Athletic nephew: Pick an inspirational birthday wish.
Mature nephew: Choose a cute, clever or cool birthday greeting.
Cool nephew: Select a clever or cool birthday message.
Artistic nephew: Opt for an inspirational, funny, cool or clever birthday verse.
Infantile (or young) nephew: Go for a cute, sentimental or happy birthday wish.
The helpful hints above are exactly that — just hints. Since you know your nephew better than me, let your intuition guide you to the right nephew birthday wishes.
My favorite nephew birthday wishes are the ones with birthday messages that show how much you, as an aunt or uncle, love your nephew, but in different ways. It's the distinctiveness of each way that makes nephew birthday wishes so special for your nephew. Your nephew will appreciate your expression of love, whatever way you choose to show him.
Combine different types of birthday messages to give birth to the best nephew birthday wishes for him. Of course, if you've stumbled upon nephew birthday wishes that fit your nephew perfectly, don't change anything (keep them "as is").
Bottom line: All you need to do is write nephew birthday wishes that are the best for you...and right for him. Just remember that the right nephew birthday wishes come down to your feelings for him.
Need to add "extra wow" to your nephew birthday wishes?
As an aunt and uncle, you play a major role in the lives of your nephews, whether or not you have children of your own.
Every year, on your nephew's birthday, you have an opportunity to express exactly how you feel about him. That's where the nephew birthday wishes on this page come in.
