Message Guy Tip #46: How to select son birthday wishes
Sons are the perfect blend of wonder, warmth, joy and love. But figuring out what to write for them is hard. The young ones care more about their gifts. The older ones dislike “mushy” messages. You could write almost anything for adult sons.
The best route? A mix of cute and happy...with a touch of the sentimental (and a sprinkle of pride).
For a good idea of what your son may want to hear from you in a birthday message, check out the two articles below (both are short and give concrete advice):
Son, you are a shining example of everything that’s right in this world. May your future be as bright, starting with your special day. Happy birthday!
Words are simply not enough to express how amazing I feel to have you as my son. I love you. You make my life complete. Happy birthday, son!
Need help? We’ll be there. Celebrating? We’ll be there. Just want to talk? Count on us to be there. It’s not because we have lots of time — we have lots for you. Happy birthday, son!

Some sons are not very comfortable with birthday wishes that are too cute or heartwarming. For them, you may want to dial back the sentiment a little. Choosing shorter, more lighthearted “happy” birthday messages may be a better way to go.
Here are lots of examples you may want to use outright or tweak:
Happy birthday, son! May this year be your best ever!
Son, hope your birthday is as incredible as you!
May your birthday be filled with lots of cake, gifts and cheer!
Your future looks so bright. Happy birthday, son!
Have a great special day. Son, you deserve the best-ever birthday!
Wishing you a very happy birthday and wonderful year!
Thanks for being a great son. Happy birthday!
Enjoy every moment of your birthday…and every piece of your cake.
Happy birthday, our remarkable young man!
On your special day, hope you get everything you wish for…and more!
