Sentimental Birthday Wishes

Great sentimental birthday wishes have a very special ingredient that makes getting older a little easier to swallow: nostalgia. On this page, there's enough nostalgia to feed the whole family with birthday messages that bring back the "good old days."

But not just any sentimental birthday greeting will do the trick. You need to make sure that the level of sentimentality in the birthday wish you choose fits the personality of the birthday boy or girl, delivering what you want to say to him or her.

Today, you have many reasons to be grateful that you’re alive and well — I have Happy birthday!

Wishing you an unforgettable birthday that only gets more memorable every minute of every hour!

As kids, we'd play for hours on end...with pure joy in our hearts. We're older now but you're still that playful kid so full of joy. May your birthday be just as joyful!

Happy birthday! When I see the glint of possibility and excitement in your eyes, you don't look a day over the 18 year old I met so many years ago! You make me feel alive!

You deserve a standing ovation! You’ve always been a hit with us. It’s been an honor to know you. We love you. Happy birthday!

It's a tremendous privilege for us to celebrate you, your birthday, your life and what it means to have you in ours!
